Hello, this is Natasha, and I am here with some big celebrity news: Gladys, the heroine of our story about a girl band, is BACK! And she’s recorded five new songs which we shall hear in this series about her dream to become a pop singer in her own right.
Wow! If you like music, you'll simply LOVE this story.
It’s been a few years since we gave you the Gladys and the chiX series, so let’s have a little catch-up.
Our Gladys grew up in Teddington, which is a town on the Thames, just outside London. Her older sisters, Mandy, Laura, and Sam formed the girl band, the chiX, which had a string of hits before breaking up last year.
The lead singer of the chiX, Laura, is enjoying a successful solo career and now lives in Los Angeles.
Although Gladys was never in the band, because she was too young, she wrote their early songs before they were famous.
Gladys is sixteen and has just finished her school exams, called GCSEs. Everyone expects her to go into the sixth form, and then to a top university.
So now you know everything you need to know about Gladys and the chiX. Were you one of the people who cried when the news came out about your favourite girl-band breaking up? No of course you weren't. You're not a big softy like that - but it was kind of sad. Quite a few fans blame Laura. They say she was only ambitious for her own glory; but the truth is that Mandy and Sam did not want to carry on with the constant touring, the responsibility to the fans, the press tittle-tattle, and the trending hashtags. They weren't even that good at singing and dancing. Laura was the one with the looks, the voice, and the talent. “Let her get on with being famous,” they said.
But what about Gladys? She still lived at home in Teddington with Dad.
One Friday, towards the end of May, she stood in front of the hall mirror. She was about to head up to town to have a TV dinner with Mandy and Sam in Clapham.
“Hey-ho, I’ll always be the little sis of the family,” she thought to herself, “but I’m not a child anymore. Nobody can tell me what to do with my life.” She applied a dash of bright red lippy and blew a kiss at her reflection. “Is my face pretty?” She thought. “Hmmm… Well yes - pretty ordinary, actually. But don’t be fooled, world. That’s only the way I look…”
Later she sat on the train as it trundled past Berrylands, fragrant from the sewage farm that stood by the side of the tracks, then Wimbledon famous for the Wombles and tennis; next Raynes Park and the big Victorian undertakers’ shop that filled the view from the train window, and eventually to Clapham Junction, where a sign boasts that it is Britain’s busiest railway station.
She walked through the passenger tunnel, and onto the hilly High Street lit by headlights and shop windows, and buzzing with Londoners heading out for Friday evening. Her sisters' flat was a few streets away. It took up two floors of a white fronted old house. They had a garden at the back, but the evening wasn’t quite nice enough to sit outside.
"So how did your exams go?" Asked Mandy as she cut the cellophane off the Vulcan Veggie pizza and turned the oven to 200 centigrade.
"Don't ask silly questions,” said Sam. "If she didn’t get straight A’s, then her name’s not Gladys Cooper.”
Gladys thought quietly to herself, “Well it isn’t anymore, because I’m changing my name.”
"I'll find out in August," she said modestly. Most people would have been surprised if she had got anything less than A for everything - but she wasn't quite sure about her chemistry.
"Are you looking forward to being a big girl win the Sixth Form?" asked Mandy.
"No," said Gladys.
"What do you mean 'no'? It's far more fun in the Sixth. School stops being like a prison. You can hang around in the common room and you can go out at lunchtime. The teachers call you by your first name. There will be more parties. You'll meet more boys - older ones, not just the drips in your class."
"I mean," said Gladdy, "That I'm not going into the Sixth Form. I'm leaving school."
She had just dropped a bombshell, but it hadn’t quite exploded yet.
"Like straight to Oxbridge University?" said Sam. “Oh Gladdy, you always were the smartest. “
But that wasn’t what Gladys meant. Her mouth was a little dry. She felt stressed saying this. It sounded a little brittle.
"Not to any university or school. That's it, I'm done with exams."
Now she had dropped it good and proper - The bomb had gone off. Both her sisters were trying hard not to look shell-shocked.
"So what are you going to do?" Asked Mandy.
"Sing," said Gladys. Her cheeks went hot. However resolutely she spat out the word, it sounded reckless and silly. She knew what they were going to say next - They were going to say, "You're throwing your life's chances away. You don't want to sing; singing is a tough business. Take it from us, we know - we’ve been there, done that. You're far too smart. Get your exams first and then decide what you want to do."
Actually, Sam and Mandy were so astonished that neither of them said anything for a while. In a way, their combined silence was more terrible than if they had actually started giving her the benefit of their elder sisters’ wisdom. Mandy chopped some extra mushrooms to put on the pizza. Sam set out the kitchen table with napkins and candles and chose some progressive rock for the music system.
Then the flack began to fly...
"You don't want to sing, really, do you?" Said Mandy.
"Yeah, Gladys, you're throwing your life's chances away, you're far too clever to do a thing like that,” chipped in Sam.
"But truly, all I want to do is sing," pleaded Gladys. Her precise premonition of what they would say had not helped her dream up any sassy and convincing replies. She had already told her teacher about her decision, and that had been an even more uncomfortable interview. She had felt the weight of her mentor's disappointment pressing down on her. Her father had been easier. He had said,
"Are you sure Gladdy?" Then, "Well, you're a smart lass. Do what you think is best." That was the sum of his parental guidance and support. Well, he was busy at the time, sorting out his old vinyl record collection.
But Mandy sounded far more like her teacher had done. "Get your exams done first, and then decide what you want to do, that's my advice,” she said; not mentioning that she herself had only lasted a year in the Sixth Form before being chucked out. The school didn't like lazy failures in exams - so they got rid of them before they had a chance to mess up their statistics.
Gladys knew that if she followed the path everyone expected her to take, through the sixth form at school and then university, she would be 22 years old before she got started in life - and that was so grown up that it was ancient. You could never be too young to make it in music. Maturity and wisdom are weights around your neck in the stormy waters of pop.
"I can see why you might feel envious," said Sam. "Your big sisters swan around the world enjoying fame and fortune while you stay at home with Dad and his motorcycle. But look, neither Mandy, nor I ever got that famous or that fortunate or that rich. We did all that work, and now all we can afford is this little flat in Clapham. That’s it! Laura’s the one who has all the attention because she's got long legs and a big mouth, and you can't ignore her. But you're not like that Gladdy. You're - well - clever, and nice, and a bit shy. I can't see you out there on the circuit, night after night, plastering your stage makeup on in the dressing room, squeezing into outrageous outfits, and prancing around with a radio microphone strapped to your head like you were some sort of alien. It's just not you Gladys."
"How do I know?" Said Gladys, feeling upset, and wishing she could keep her cool. "I haven't tried yet."
Sam pressed her phone and changed the music on the sound system.
"Oh not that!" Exclaimed Mandy, as the first few bars of Laura's latest single began to play.
Their sister's voice wrapped out,
"I'm your queen, you love me mean. I’m the cruelest lover you’ve ever seen."
Gladys hated those words. She reckoned the record company had given them to Laura to harden her image.
Sam was actually twerking, pointing her rear end at Gladys. "Come on Glad,” she said, "I thought you wanted to do this." In her time with the chiX, Sam had a personal dance instructor, and she had learned some slick steps. Still, wriggling one’s bum, however skilfully done, never looks that dignified. Gladys had never been that comfortable dancing just normally. She remained seated in her chair. She sat there thinking, "They don't believe that I can sing my way to the top, but I will do it because I want to do it, and when I want to do something I set about doing it properly, and nobody or nothing can stop me."
She caught the last train back to Teddington. It was full of office workers who had hit the pub at 6pm and were now slumped in their seats and in danger of sleeping past their stops. Some of them were plugged into headphones with the bass thumping louder than the clackety-clack of the train.
"Are these the people who will download my songs?" Thought Gladys. "Will they have my voice playing in their heads? If this was a year from now, and if that guy sitting opposite opened his eyes, would he see me and know that I'm Gladys? Would he know my songs, and my words, and my feelings that I had sung about, even though I wouldn't know anything about him? Is that what it means to be famous? To be known, but not to know those who know you? Hmm, perhaps he might even fancy me, even though he had never met me, wouldn't that be funny?"
When she got home, she sat crossed legged on the bed and strummed her guitar. She found it soothing. She was more of a pianist really, and was just learning a few chords, but she felt that a singer-songwriter should be able to play the guitar, because it looked kind of clever and independent, and cute.
She sang, "All I want to do is sing!"
And a few minutes later, she reached over to the table for a pencil and paper, and scribbled down some words and some chords.
Yes, she, Gladys, was going to stand up in front of the world and sing.
It is a very good story, but i didn’t heard it with Natasha’s voice, because then it would only be one voice. So, for you who watch storynory, hear it without sound, because then you’ll be able to make your own voices.Just a tip.

June 6, 2014
I’m so glad that you have finally read my messages I was told about story Nory 4 years ago by my year three teacher I remember so clearly listening to my first one it was the first wicked uncle one and I absolutely lovely it. I also remember going home and telling my parents about it and so every night no matter where I a. I listen to 2 or more of them. I think this is a amazing website and I will listen to it for many years to come. When I came on today and saw that you had replied to the message I put on last night I was over joyed thank you so much for bringing these audio books to children all around the world and I an so thankful and I am sure that all of the other children who listen to story nory everyday feel the same was so I hope to hear from you soon mad I am ready for the next part of the story to come out.
June 6, 2014
I will always Love story nory and even though in the last one you said that you wouldn’t like younger children to donate money I will still do it because I think that is a great cause. I really do live story nory and I will never forget about how it changed my life because I feel that these story’s about the chiX could be real and I’m sure that there are people around the world who can relate to them. I think that this is the best website in the world. These stories are written very well, and read beautiful and I think that you and Natasha are a amazing team you write with amazing talent and Natasha reads With a beautiful voice. When I grow up I am going to do something like this for free because it sound really fun I don’t think that money matters in life, if I am making others happy then I am proud of myself, and that is what you do for me every single day so thank you please get back to me soon so you can tell me what a reasonable price to donate would be from Sofia
June 6, 2014
Dear Sofia thank you so much for your lovely comments and for listening for so long to Storynory. It was very interesting to read about how you first heard Storynory at school and then came home and told your parents about it. As I mentioned, we don’t expect kids to donate (though of course it really helps us if parents can). I don’t know what part of the world you are in and which currency you use. You ask about a sum. From a child, £5 would be lovely.
But there are alternatives to giving money. You could buy Gladys’s album in iTunes… or some of our Gladys gear … all the links are above.
Just for the interest of others – Grown UPS !! Storynory is really expensive to run. Nisha was asking how we recorded the music for this series. Well we hired professional musicians and a professional recording studio and the project has cost us thousands of pounds. You are going to hear more and more music. Then there are the illustrations. Donations would really help to make this sustainable. Or check out our merchandise – it’s really beautifully designed – or the iTunes album. To tell you the truth, a donation is the most cost effective way to help us, but buying this is more fun and a way to get involved.
Thank you so much for responding again as you mentioned in your last comment that €5 would be a suitable donation I think I can donate €45 because I really love story Nory and as you said it is very expensive to run, so I think I would like to donate on the day of my birthday because I would never be able to live without it. I know I say this every time I comment but I love your website so much and I think that you are an amazing person and I look up to you as my role model because even though not everyone who listens to story nory give a donation you still make everything free to listen to and I admire that and I’m very sure that there are a lot of other people who feel the same way. My birthday will be on June 10th ( this Tuesday) so please be ready for a donation. I am American so I will have to change the money into pounds but I’m sure If I ask my parents they can help me do that. I know that in these stories glyds is just a girl and most people think that she isn’t real but I know that there is someone in the world that wants to sing and a lot of people don’t think that they can make it so as I admire you I also admire her because of her determination and she trusts her guts. Thank you so much for creating storynory I feel it completes me. Thank you to Natasha, Richard and anyone else who help do storynOry I look up to you and admire you and I always will. I have said a lot of thank yous but the one person who I haven’t th.anked is you Bertie. I don’t know how often people say it directly to you but you are the most amazing person that I have ever heard of and I have read the comments and how everyone say good things about the stories but not often do people,say things directly to you but I am saying it now loud and clear thank you so much and even though I haven’t met you, I know that if I ever did I would be blown away by your kindness( more that I already am) so thanks once more and have a good weekend. Sofia
June 6, 2014
Dear Sofia, that is enormously generous of you. Are you sure? Wouldn’t you like to buy yourself a nice birthday present? Thank you for even thinking about it. I am so pleased that you enjoy Storynory and admire Gladys. What you say about me and Storynory, is really, really nice, and I am very touched by everything you have written, and yes, it is lovely to have some direct thanks.
Yes I. Am very sure I don’t need any presents because I have a lot of toys and I don’t even play with them. I normally would rather send my time listening to storynory and reading books. I am very thankful tHat in the last 2 days you have responded to all of my comments and that means the world to me. I think what I’m about to ask lot to ask but I’m thinking because I listened to storynory every night maybe just maybe I could write a comment on this page or this sorties comments every night and you could just keep an eye out for them. I totally understand that you are a very busy person but I would appreciated if you could try because in the past 2 days I almost feel like I have made a connection with you because you are such a great person. When I come home from school everyday I listen to a story because now some days I am bullied by a group of girls who really don’t like me so I think that not only is it a good website but also it helps me get through hard times and it also taught me to like myself and be proud of who I am. I now am happy because you have responded to my comments and I also don’t think that I need any birthday presents because you responding to my comments is the best present that I could ever get so thank yo, you have made my week. I hope that with my donation you will be able to keep storynory running a for many more years to come and don’t forget I am your biggest fan ever and I am a loyal listener andi will always be and if storynory is still going when I am older I will never forget about it because it is a very very special thing in my life that helped me and made me happy so I really appreciate that so that is why I am going to donate most of my birthday money to you. Please always remember that I am you number 1 fan I can’t live with out you thank you again so please remember I am super excited for the next chapter because I love all of the stories on storynory but especially this one. Sofia
June 6, 2014
Dear Sofia everything you said is so touching. Don’t let those bullies get to you because you are great.
Also to Nisha in India thank you too for all your support and lovely comments
Bertie thanks for replying. I’d love to donate, but my parents don’t know how to do it, because I live in India. I think that my parents would say yes, though. Thanks again for replying, and making storynory. I wanted to start a website of my own, but then I decided to become an author. I love Gladys and Katie and all the origional stories. And the other stories are good two. But I don’t know why I want the origional stories more than the other stories. Maybe because of my excitment. And Natasha and Elizabeth and Richard and Jeffary have a real tallent for stories, especially Natasha. (Sorry I don’t know to speoll Jeffry correctly.)
Thanks many times storynory.
Good luck with the next story.
June 6, 2014
Dear Nisha thanks for your kind thoughts. I have come to conclusion that we need to do original stories more or less every week and perhaps do the legends as extras.
dear Bertie I have a idea for the next story. I think Gladys should meet this manager who looks really serious. and he asks if he can be her manager. so she go’s to his office. and reads his contract and it looks good so she signs it. but then he wants her too change her appearance. and turn her into a punk singer. and she doesn’t want to. but he says she has to. because it says on the contract that he can change her appearance. she says she says she read it and it doesn’t say that but then he points to the some small print she didn’t notice and she reads it and it say it rite their.
p.s. you could also put in a part where she goes and tells her sisters about him but they say he’s a scam artist and Gladys shouldn’t trust him. and these are only suggestions you don’t have to use them. but please still get back to me. also your one of my favorite writter
mystery writter —
June 6, 2014
Dear Mystery Writer thank you for imaginative Gladys suggestions. I have actually written the whole series already. Some things are not so far off your ideas.
What I think I will try and do Is to give a €5 donation every month so that way it can help you in a more organised way. I will have to Change the currency but I don’t mind because it will be helping you and the website abd that is all I want to do.since you brout back the chiX can you give more wicked uncle please?
June 6, 2014
Dear Sofia that is so generous of you to start a regular donation. And thank you so much for the fan page on Instagram. It is so generous of you.
I’m happy to say I have just started a fan page of storyboard on Instagram. It is called storynory_ I will use it to help you gain more listener. But Maybe you could mention it in a story or put it on the home page it is called
June 6, 2014
No! You can’t throw away your own chance at University! Stop her Bertie!
June 7, 2014
Hi J – I can’t stop Gladys, she’s got a will of her own. But I think she is the sort of person who will go far in life, whichever path she chooses, because she is smart, works extremely hard, and very focused on achieving her ambitions.
I have spent the who morning constructing a new page so it will probably be finished and start gaining followers by tomorrow. If you have Instagram and you have a minute could you please follow me. I have lost my I pod touch. Ut I don’t think that is a problem because I can still do Itoh my phone. I also just wanted to let. You know that I have recently been writing my own book. I am on chapter 4, and I am on about 3500 words now.
Here is some information about from the time when I started listening to storynory until today.
I started listening to storynory from 2012. I was seven then. (Now I’m ten)
The first story that I listened to was Thumbelina. (I don’t know how to spell that) Anyway, When I listened to it, I immediately fell in love with Natasha’s voice. I can imitate her very well.
Did you know that it was you who made me want to start a website just like yours when I was eight? I don’t know if I should say this, but I download audio books from another site, too. But they only have books by Enid blyton and by other authors. I think that storynory is better. Your site is origional and funny. Whenever I’m sad or angry, I just listen to storynory and I’m okay then. Did you know that if you write when you’re sad or angry, it cools you down? I’ve tried it many times. It really works. I’d love to do something for storynory when I grow big. And, this year, for my newyear’s resolution, I decided that I would listen to storynory even when I grow big.
I am very glad about the new Gladys series, but I was a little sad about the chiX stopping. But I don’t care! Gladys is back, and that is the main thing!
Bertie do you love jokes? I love them too!
I have to go now, so Bye Bye!
P.s. More soon. There is a little left.
P.P.S. Please please please reply
June 7, 2014
Dear Nisha and Sophia thank you for lovely comments. I Will reply later.
I really love all your stories so much that yesterday afternoon I spent the whole afternoon listening to the whole chiX series and the whole wicked uncle series. I know how you have decided to bring back the chiX but I’m wondering if maybe you could bring back the awaking beauty series because I really liked them and I’m sure that there are a lot of people who listen to storynory also feel the same way. Every night I listen to at least 2 of the stories on this website. The one thing that I really admire is that there is a moral in every story. I think that you can really get the moral In the 1001 nights series because it’s more obvious, but in most of the other stories it isn’t so clear but if you listen to every word of the story then you can get the moral. I think that it is amazing how you can write the stories and not make them to long and make the easy enough to understand while trying to put a moral into it, watch is pretty amazing that you can do that. Thank you again to Richard Natasha and you or anyone else that is involves in storynory
June 7, 2014
Bertie I’m writing a book about ten girls who want to start a secret club of their own. Can you please helt me think of a name? Now I’ve just put it as the ten kids club, but I want a better name. Please help me.
Dear Dawn, Sunny, Maggie, Jill, ducky and Amalia – Glad you like gladys.
Nisha – The Ten Club sounds good to me as a title. Good luck with the book about the secret club. I agree that writing (and reading and listening to stories) is very good for stress. In fact being creative in general is good for nerves. And thank you for letting me know how you started listening to Storynory.
Sophia – yes, we might do Waking Beauty again, but not in the near future as have so many other projects on the boil -but I would like to bring back Princess Talia one day.

Hi Bertie didn’t get to finish yesterday when is the next Bertie story I am moving to Missouri this is one of my last times on story nory
April 14, 2015
Why one of last times? I bet in Missouri has internet connection so u can listen to storynory, it is global! Since one of people who submitted a story for a contest was in India or something like that.
April 21, 2015
Is it just me or do the two older sisters of Gladys in the pic look like the older sisters in Sabrina the Teenage witch series? Please respond.
April 21, 2015
Also Sabrina the Teenage Witch series is a T.V. show. Look it up the cartoon version of it and Gladys’s older sisters seriously look like Sabrina’s! Was story nory going for that? Please respond thanks! 🙂
April 21, 2015
Hello Hope, no Storynory was not going for that. Gladys is an original Bertie story.

Hi Owen I wrote the stories and I think I agree with you that I preferred the first series of Gladys as it was more innocent and fun but we do have loads of other stories in the site and I hope you can find a series that you enjoy.
