Queen Victoria’s Account of the Mystery of Lady Elizabeth

By Libby P, Loyola Park After School Program

I walked out from my palace to catch a carriage to go to a famous restaurant. I can’t recall the name now but as I walked through the door it was not as fancy as I had hoped but still fancy. I was greeted by Lady Elizabeth. She had said, “My husband seems to be missing at this time and would otherwise be here to greet you as well. I believe he is in the kitchen maybe helping prepare the food just for your presence.” She wore a sickingly yellow dress that made me wonder who her tailor was so I can make sure I stay far, far, far away I couldn’t be seen wearing something like that. The guests started complaining about the food saying it was a little off so as you might guess I was starting to get nervous. Because my food had not been served yet. Just then out of the midst of the banter of the room came a shriek. I of course had just eaten my food and was thirsty so I had just taken a sip from my glass so it surprised me greatly and I almost spat it out. But the cry of distress seemed to come from a customer who was just about to take a sip of soup when she saw a ghastly sight, an eyeball in her soup. Imagine finding some thing off of a living person in something you wish to consume. I would not only scream and shout I would sue! But later after the commotion had died down I went to the kitchen to inspect! But as I walked in there was more commotion. But instead with the police! A cook fully in uniform had handcuffs and was almost in tears. I almost felt bad! Lady Elizabeth was sobbing and as I looked around I saw a head. The End.

Jacques and the Mystery of Lady Elizabeth

By Charlie D, Loyola Park After School Program

So I’m told by the chief of police that somebody was killed at that fancy restaurant down the street that I could never afford to go to. I was hired as an undercover chef for the restaurant. When I got there I noticed a beautiful woman. Later I learned that she was the wife of the man that got killed. Over the next few days I noticed that the lady had feelings for me too. The next day she confessed her feelings to me. A few days later I was going over to her house a few minutes early but I figured she wouldn’t mind. When I got there I saw through a slit in the closet door 2 dead bodies, two young women. I looked at them a little bit closer and I noticed bruises on their necks. They were strangled. I took the prints on their necks and took them to the lab. Lady Elizabeth called me to ask where I was. I lied that I had an important family emergency. I tested the prints and they were Lady Elizabeth’s. I learned the two girls names later Claire and Emily. Claire was Lady Elizabeth’s daughter and Emily was a friend from Claire’s school. I had no idea why she would kill her own daughter. One day she was coming over to my house. When she got there I confronted. I called the police. She took out a knife and killed me. A few minutes later my invisible ghost self arose. I saw her passing the room muttering under her breath. Oh my gosh, what did I just do oh my gosh what did I just do. Then I heard sirens. She looked up, looked back down like she was thinking, then immediately took out a knife and killed herself. The police arrived a few minutes later and didn’t know who to accuse. She was wearing gloves this time. Then her ghost spirit arose and killed all of the cops. Now millions are dead and nobody knows who it is. She kills groups as she is invisible, and can go through doors. She also kills groups one at a time and ghosts can not speak so she will never be stopped. She never stopped completely but didn’t do it as much. She even now kills people and is responsible for some of the bombings and terrorist attacks in the last century. Oh yeah because bombs don’t do anything to ghosts. Then finally she was captured by the ghost busters. The End.

How to Go to School in a Fast/Safe Way

By Maggie, Mira, Branden, Sydney, and Javon, Lincolnwood Elementary

Dear The Bosses,
We believe… work should let parents drive and pick up kids to schools. Rocket cars could make the drop off fasters. It is safer when parents drop kids off. Parents know where to go. Your parents get worried when they aren’t the ones. We need our parents! The End.
