As a writer, I love when I see my own children enjoying the passion of writing. I homeschool my three girls and recently gave them a writing assignment. The results did not disappoint.
As a family we have read the Harry Potter series, and we are currently reading the Twilight Saga. Robert Pattinson played Cedric in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and went on to play Edward in the Twilight movies.
So I asked the girls to write what they thought Cedric might do if he ever met Edward. Below is one of my girls’ fanfiction they allowed me to share with you today. Seeing as she is only 13, I am really proud of her use of imagination.
*** CEDWARD ***
Edward ran as fast as he could. Considering the fact he was a vampire, that was pretty fast.
He came upon the clearing he was looking for. There was the boy, Cedric.
Edward snatched him. No joke! He grabbed the boy by the arm and ran, slinging Cedric onto his back. Cedric was screaming the entire time.
Edward finally put him down.
“Take me back!” Cedric screamed. “He’s going to kill Harry!”
“Oh, please,” Edward scoffed, “I’ve read the books. I just saved you from being killed. Harry’s fine…”
Edward forgot the fact his story was what Alice called “bookified”.
Cedric’s eye twitched. “What are you?”
“A vampire,” he said with a smirk. “I’m Edward. Nice to meet you, Cedric.”
Cedric took a deep breath while Edward tried not to chuckle. His thoughts were just plain hilarious.
Cedric spoke what had literally been on his mind for the past five minutes. “Why do you look so familiar?”
Edward laughed, “Right back at you.”
“No,” Cedric shook his head, “no joke, you almost look…”
Cedric’s voice fell.
“Exactly like me,” Edward said at the exact moment the thought went through Cedric’s mind.
“Wait, if you’re a vampire, why haven’t you eaten me yet?”
Edward groaned. “You smell like grass. Not to my liking. Plus, I eat animals.”
“And that’s better than people?” Cedric asked accusingly.
“Hey,” Edward growled. “It’s you or the hippogriff. Now, climb on my back.”
Cedric shut up as they traveled back to the Cullen’s.
