The Story of Necromancy

I just recently did the first part of my new story called the Story of Necromancy for a school essay. I am thinking of continuing the series if anyone is interested in this. i have already got the nod of approval from my good friend The Hydra who gave it a 8.5/10 which is a pretty good rating from The Hydra. The first part is about 1000 words enjoy and tell me what you think.

?úChapter 1?ú
?ú The Accomplishments of Sandro?ú
I may not look like a genius, but?c err, how can I finish that sentence. Here I am trying to write my life accomplishments, and I can?ft think of any. My name is Sandro Neophyte. I?fm 31 years old and as I?fve just gathered, I haven?ft accomplished anything in my life. I wish that someday, I will accomplish something so that my funeral won?ft be so short, because no-one will have anything to say about me. But, that is just a dream and an average joe like me will probably never accomplish anything. If I am to ever write this story about myself, I?fll have to think about what I?fve done in my life.

To gather his thoughts, Sandro left for the Eerie Forest, which was famous to the townspeople in the small town that Sandro belonged to, for its cemetery in the centre and for the 3 girls that strangely disappeared 127 years ago. The Forest is frequently visited by all the townspeople because they visit their departed ancestors and relatives. It was not normally used for collecting thoughts, but Sandro would be prepared to do anything to
beat this stump he was on for his life accomplishments. As Sandro soon found out the Eerie Forest was not made to collect thoughts, it was just too spooky to keep his mind on his life accomplishments.

?úChapter 2?ú
?ú The Beginning of the Nightmare?ú
When Sandro entered the cemetery something unbelievable happened to him. All the dead people in the cemetery were rising from their graves, whether they were skeletons or zombies, it didn?ft matter, it was that they were alive that was amazing. Sandro looked a little closer trying not to be seen by the undead. He noticed that they seemed to be following a leader?fs orders, who was practising black magic to raise the dead from their graves and control them. The leader looked like some sort of vampire, but Sandro was unsure how, why or what he was doing and intended to do. He assumed that is was bad news so he decided to go back and tell the townspeople about what was happening before he was too late.

As Sandro exited the forest and re-entered the city his shocks were continued. It seemed that this lead vampire was thinking ahead. He had already killed everyone in the city and raised them from the dead. Now that Sandro had seen this he didn?ft know what to do. He assumed that killing the lead vampire would make the dead return to their graves, but he could never be sure. Whilst, all this commotion was going on Sandro had no time to think about his life story or grieve for his friends and family. He kept his mind on task and returned to the cemetery.

?úChapter 3?ú
?ú Meeting Isra and the book ?ú
When Sandro returned to the cemetery the living dead army was very strong and it looked like they were just about ready to be a strong enough force to wipe out some city?fs human population. Sandro had to do something and fast. He decided to stand up and sneak in to try and stop them. The way he was going to do this, Sandro was still unsure of, but he was sure his creative mind would come up with it. Just as he stood up he heard some whispering behind him. The voice said ?gGet back down. You don?ft want to be killed do you??h With that Sandro dropped to the ground and turned around. The voice was his friend Isra Dextrous. Sandro went over and talked to Isra, ?gso the vampire didn?ft get you??h he said. Isra replied, ?gwell obviously not, but you better watch out or he?fll get you too. I know how to beat him. It is nothing to do with killing him since he is immortal, but if we take control of his army we can turn them against him.?h Sandro then added ?gWell that sounds good, but exactly how do we do that??h Isra then replied ?gI?fm not exactly sure how to do it, but I have a book on necromancy at home and I?fm sure there is spells in there to take control of the monsters.?h Sandro then amazed added ?gHow did you get a book on that??h Isra then in a hurry said ?gNo time for that now. Let?fs go and get the book.?h And with that Sandro and Isra left to get the book.

?úChapter 4?ú
?ú Taking Control?ú
When Sandro and Isra returned to Isra?fs house to find the book, they could hear the army of living dead coming in the distance. They would have to find the spell fast. Luckily for Sandro and Isra, Isra knew exactly in the book where it was. All they know needed to do was to say the spell in front of the living dead. So, Sandro and Isra went outside to wait for the army to arrive.

It only took 30 seconds to arrive and just as the vampire saw them, they could see his mouth was about to move. Sandro was horrified. He thought that with the vampire?fs next words he would die. But, just as he was preparing to die, Isra delivered the first and final blow. With the words he spoke the zombies stopped their killing march towards them. Then Isra spoke some more words and the zombies killed the vampire. Sandro couldn?ft believe how close he was to dying. He then asked Isra ?gWhat are we going to do with the living dead??h Isra then replied ?gI think we should put them back to rest. Now that we have control of them they can?ft be rose again by anyone else except us.?h Then, with a few more words, the living dead returned to their graves and all the townspeople came back to life.

A few days later, Sandro decided to continue his story about himself. Sandro read the first line back to himself. I may not look like a genius but, I helped to save the world!

Try writing longer chapters. And the text is screwed up and hard to read.

They are only supposed to be small chapters and the pats of the story are to be short, because I asm writing it in parts and if it gets long enough I might just turn it into a long piece of writing. i don't know why the punctuation stuffed up. Most bits of punctuation in there has those squares and a letter after it, but you should know what it is supposed to say.

All the great powers that have ruled the world, remain in their rule till they considered education as the most important factor in the law essay writing help society and nation building. They experienced a fall and unlimited failures when they failed to give due attention to education of their people.
