Biography

Monica

Monica is a clever, determined ambitious person. She is an athlete, who enjoys mountain biking. Which she does with her older brother Peter his friend Mark. Her brother Peter is a bit of an arrogant and obnoxious bully, who treated her poorly and didn't quite respect her. Her brother also liked to scare her and get her going.

During the events of the story, she, her brother and Mark went on an expedition in the woods. She had difficulty keeping with her brother. Since she was smaller and he was taller and going too fast. Then her brother lead them all on an off course trail in the woods. Since he felt it would be more of a challenge. She suggested that they stay on the right part. So they would not get lost. But her brother was rude to her and persuaded her to go along with he and Mark.

Soon she, Peter and Mark found themselves trapped in a small wooded area. The area had a specific old and weird tree in the center of it. Soon her brother just seemed to have instantly disappeared. She and Mark thought that her brother was messing with them and hiding on she and Mark as joke. The truth was Peter had been transported into a hidden underground chamber.

She and Mark soon realized that they were trapped in the woods and they had no way out. Then soon very bizarre things began to happen: First it began to rain various pretty flower petals. Then suddenly a lightning storm instantly began. With quick-thinking, she convinced Mark to hide with hide with her around the small trees. Since the big ones get struck first. Next a Burden Beast was summoned. It was a ruthless humanoid bloodthirsty monster. It would relentlessly hunt down anything in its path. She and Mark were also in danger of being hit by its long razor sharp claws. Which it could throw like lawn darts. After she left it a pouch with some food in it, it distracted the beast. Therefore she and Mark managed to lose track of it for a short period of time.

Then suddenly, Mark stepped into a pit of sticky quicksand. He began sinking fast. So she quickly handed him a stick and she tried her best to pull him out. It nearly sucked Mark in and drowned him. Until suddenly it mysteriously stopped. Then suddenly the Burden Beast returned and resumed chasing after she and Mark.

Then suddenly it was pitch black and nighttime. This helped a bit. Since it enabled she and Mark to hide better.

Finally she and Mark deduced that the old weird looking tree, must be the source of all the events happening to them. Along with what was keeping them trapped in the woods. Mark suggested that try and knock it down. So she and Mark began pushing it with all of their might.

Meanwhile in the hidden underground chamber, her brother had been playing a board game called: The Forever Game It was an eons old game created to trap people in the woods and in the underground chamber. The winner of a game got to leave. And the loser was forced to stay trapped in underground chamber forever. Peter had been playing the game with a captive named Nathaniel, who had been trapped inside the underground chamber for seventy years. The game was the source of what was causing all the mayhem and chaos that he and Monica had gone through. These events were caused by landing game pieces on certain buttons.

Her brother could see in the viewing globe of the game that she and Mark were trying to knock the tree try over. So her brother spun the wheel backwards and went 8 spaces back. Then her brother reactivated the lighting. So the lightning started again in the forest.

She and Mark held onto the tree, planning to jump out of the way, right when the lightning would strike. Luckily she and Mark jumped out of the way in the nick of time. Just as a bolt lightning bolt zapped the old weird old tree. The lightning destroyed both the tree and the game.

Then in a cloud of smoke her brother was free. Also at long last Nathaniel was free. Instantly seventy years of age caught up with him. Nathaniel applauded and thanked he and Monica for finding the way to destroy the game once and for all. After Nathaniel left, her brother was very impressed with her. He told her that he saw everything she and Mark had gone through. And he proudly commented on how great she did with all of her clever quick-thinking and heroics. Her brother promised that he would tell she and Mark all about what had happened to him as she would lead the way home.

Finally she proved herself to her brother and she finally earned his respect.
