At one place, on one planet, in one galaxy there was a boy. This boy's name was Stanley. Stanley was no average boy. He has the ability of bad. He also has a partner in crime named Rufus. Rufus is Stanley's pet dog. This is a story of how they saved their planet.
One day when Stanley was feeding Rufus the ground started to shake and the sky turned black.
"Bark, Bark," barked Rufus which translates to " Oh, no."
A voice that was heard for miles around sounded saying," Hand over the so called, Stanley, or else. If not done so everyone will be punished. You have until midnight to give him up to me at 999 Random Road."
Stanley was freaked out, what should he do? He needed a plan. He a Rufus set of gathering any kind of weapon they could find. After an hour of searching they were equipped with great things such as, stink bombs, silly string and fireworks. He and Rufus marched out of their house and charged after this evil person. Then they realized that they don't know where 999 Random Road is. So they went back inside and got a map. Shortly after that, they arrive at this old abandon house.
"Ok, Rufus, you go in the back and I'll go in the front to surprise them," whispered Stanley.
Stanley broke down the door with the fireworks and went inside, silly string in hand. He turned on the lights and everyone jumped out at once yelling," Surprise!"
It was all a set up for a surprise party for him. Everyone he knew was there and they partied all night long. For once he thought that he did not have bad luck.

For my recent, fourteenth birthday I got a brand new chess board. I know it seems a little nerdy but it is a lot of fun. I am not that good because I have only played against my sister. I want to teach the rest of my family but they think it is too hard. So far I really enjoy playing it and I am going to tell you how to play.
First of all, the objective of the game is to capture your opponents king. When and if you can do that the game is over and the player says "checkmate". You have sixteen pieces as well as your opponent, but they all have different rules. You have eight pawns which can only move forward and able to capture a piece only by moving diagonal. Next you have two rooks and they can only move forward, backward and side to side. Besides the king and queen I think that they are the most important. Anyway, you also have knights and bishops and knights can only move in a L shape while bishops can only move diagonal. Finally you have the king and queen which you want to protect all the time. They can do pretty much anything. Those are what all the pieces are and what they can do.
Chess may sound hard to learn or really dumb but trust me it is a lot of fun. That is what chess is basically all about. I think that it challenges your intelligence and that is why I like to play chess.
