Front and Back cover for narrative

LI to proofread and edit
LI to Illustrate the narrative
For this activity I had to design a front cover and a back cover for my narrative. I decided to use my narrative hook on the back cover, I also used my ready made characters to create a picture on the front and back cover.
I did this by already making my characters, making trees and other things with google shapes and also by thinking up the way I was going to them look like.

SHRIEK! Jill’s scream cut through the air as she held her dying brother in her arms. His blood seeped through her clothes. She couldn’t feel that, all she could feel was the burning hate and the lust for revenge.

Chapter 1 - Halloween, the night of horror
It was a dark Halloween night and the full moon was shining brightly,   two siblings Jack and Jill were dressed as elves. ‘Aww come on, just a little bit?’ Jill’s twin brother begged ‘No! You’ve your own candy this is mine!’ Jill snapped ‘But I ate it all’ Jack protested, Jill sighed and handed her brother the bucket of her candy. ‘Thvrghs!’ Jack replied cheerfully already having a handful of candy in his mouth, but quickly swallowed the candy as Jill gave him a look of disgust.

Chapter 2 - The Monster
The two siblings then started to walk home. But as soon as they were in their block of houses they heard some strange noises, coming straight from a nearby bunch of bushes. Jill tapped Jack on the shoulder and signalled for him to follow quietly, but as they found the source of the sound it turned out to be a squirrel so they started to walk back home. As soon as they got onto the street they heard an anguished cry of pain so they ran back only to find the squirrel dead and a beast tearing into its organs with razor sharp teeth, Jack and Jill were horrified and Jack threw up. At the sound of the siblings the monster turned around and they saw that it was a Bat. ‘Run!’ Jill screamed at Jack as the Bat started to fly their way. They both then sprinted home with the Bat close behind them, they barely made it through the door because Jill had to find the keys under a stone.
‘What kind of a bat is that?’ Jack asked curiously ‘I don’t know but if it can do that to animals it’ll probably kill us too’ Jill replied, ‘We should kill it right? It’ll hurt people’ Jack said Jill then replied ‘Ok fine but don’t say I didn’t warn you’.

Chapter 3 - The hunters or the hunted?
The siblings quickly changed and went to the basement where Jack got his slingshot and two pocketfuls of sharp pebbles, while Jill picked her paintball gun and four clips of ammunition up. The two of them then peered through the front window and spotted the Bat flying towards the swamp in the moonlight. They both quickly burst out of the door and ran towards the swamp making sure they hid under foliage whenever they could. Around ten minutes later they’d found where the Bat had landed, in a semicircle of trees. As they walked in Jack got some very bad vibes from the place and as he turned and started to tell his sister ‘Hey sis I’m gettin-’ SHINK went the cold metallic sound as the sword pierced his heart. Jill immediately ran to her brother but it was too late, he was dying and Jill overcome with grief screamed ‘SHRIEK!’ Jill’s scream cut through the air as she held her dying brother in her arms. His blood seeped through her clothes. She couldn’t feel that, all she could feel was the burning hate and the lust for revenge. She then slowly rose up from the ground and retrieved the sword from Jack’s body, her eyes turned blood red when she heard the Bat cackling away. She then picked Jack’s slingshot, a dozen pebbles and her paintball gun off of the ground. As the sounds of laughing got fainter she sprinted after them with a rage fueled adrenaline. In less than 15 seconds she had caught up to the Bat which was gliding slowly. She then quickly pulled her paintball gun out and ran ahead of the Bat. Jill quickly did a 180 degrees turn and shot the Bat in the eyes, temporarily blinding him and while he was thrashing around she shot him in the head with a sharp pebble from the slingshot.

Chapter 4 - Reincarnation
As the Bat died the moon shone over its body and Jill also heard the striking of the big clock, signalling midnight. It was either the moon, the fact it was midnight, or halloween, as within an instance Jack’s soul burst from the Bat’s body and angelic light covered the whole swamp, and as the soul rose upwards Jill thought her brother was going to heaven. Sadly not she thought as Jack’s soul cheekily turned and floated towards his body while poking his tongue at Jill. Jill rolled her eyes but hastily followed and was full of happiness when she reached the spot where Jack had died. For there he was smiling at her without a single cut and all of the blood seemed to have evaporated, even the blood that was on Jill. ‘Well what are you staring at?’ Jack said ‘You’re alive?’ came the reply from Jill as she burst into tears. ‘Aw come on sis don’t tell you that you don’t want to say “I told you so” to me right?’ Jack said teasingly ’well then if you insist, I told you so!’ Jill replied laughing. ‘Ok come on let’s go home’ Jack said ‘Now that you mention it I am pretty tired’ Jill admitted and with that the two of them walked home, also from that day on they didn’t go trick or treating ever again.Screenshot 2017-07-03 at 9.48.54 AM.png
