Orson Scott Card's trip to Jakarta, Indonesia

Stories from students at Jakarta International School


A long time ago, there was a bully. His name was Jason Tremor, but everyone called him JT. Everyone knew he was evil and had special powers that let him be so dangerous, but what they didn't know was that he lost a part of his size every time he used his special magic.

One day, a group of kids decide to antagonize JT. He was so furious at these stupid freaks that he cast a spell.

JT said, "1,2,3,4, now be tree!"

They all screamed in fear as they one by one turned to trees.

The parents were furious at this so they decided to attack this bully. They assembled in the town hall and decided on burning him. But the priest argued not to burn but to crucify this evil soul. So they came to doing both.

When they were all standing outside of JT's house they started screaming, "You are going to DIE!"

As JT came outside, he saw this terrible crowd and thought that they are going to praise him so he said, "Thank you, dear citizens of Mobil Town, but I am to modest to receive such a honor."

They all started to shout terrible things at JT, so he got terribly made and thought that he should do something to stop this evil.

He shouted, "1,2,3,4, NOW ALL BE DEAD!"

But it scared him that he was so small now because he had used too much magic, but since JT was very smart so he instantly cast a spell that made him his original size again.

As he talked to himself he said, "I could rule the world!"

In the next couple of weeks he went around capturing states and countries. By the end of that year he had captured U.S. which was renamed "JT Land" and united it to Canada and Mexico. He captured all of South America, but that place turned into the rebellion's headquarters but King JT had already undertook them with his magic. Soon after he had conquered the rest of the world, even though he had created himself the biggest empire ever he still had more to conquer, space, but that is another story.
