I sat at the table with my pet monkey, he was reading my essay.
“So what do you think.” I asked him
He looked at me for a second and then turned his head back to continue reading my essay. Clive was a very judgmental monkey, so I new I could count on him to double check if my essay was good to hand in. He continued to read and I saw his pupils expand and his eyes get bigger.
“What’s wrong.” I asked him, confused. He grabbed my computer in his hands and then threw it across the room.
I heard a bump. Being home alone and hearing this was scary for me, so I decided to stay quiet. 5 minutes after I heard another bump. I went to grab a knife from the kitchen, but heard a bump again. I ran and grabbed a knife then went back to the living room. But then, the door slammed and I knew I was in trouble. I ran out the front door, because they came in through the back and ran to my neighbors house. I knocked on the door once. Twice. Thrice, but they didn’t respond. Oh god, I thought
I skipped rocks on the lake, watching as they disappeared into the distance then splashed in the water. Skipping rocks was my way of thinking and calming down. I continued to skip rocks then moved to another spot. I skipped a rock but it immediately splashed in the water. What? I thought. I threw another one and the exact same thing happened. I shuffled around so I could see what was blocking the rocks. I was horrified. Two legs stuck out of the lakes water. I couldn’t even imagine what happened here, and I knew I definitely didn’t want to.
I arrived at sister and my friend’s place from swimming. She came out the door.
“Bye Dad!” She said to her dad. We climbed into my mum’s car and she drived us to Jewel Station and dropped us off. She caught the train in to Melbourne Central station, went to Melbourne Central, and started our shopping spree. We went into shops and shops until we stopped for lunch.
“Oh my god I’m so hungry.” my sister said
“Me too.” We responded together
We ate our lunch then went to a couple more shops. Finally we had to go home. We went back home and just chilled out. Best. Day. Ever.
Hi, My name’s Tim. I live in a small town surrounded by forest called Pinewood. My home is small, but it’s just like everyone else’s. My town is small, but holds many mysteries, for example, the forest that surrounds us. Many people would ask,
“ So, what lies ahead of those HUGE pine trees, but honestly, no body knows. Its a mystery to me and everyone else, except for the people who go into the forest. But they take a long time to come back, and usually they’re too scared to talk about the forest after. But that’s Pinewood for you. A small town, with BIG secrets.
“1, 2, 3,4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!” Jessica finished counting the “ten seconds off” and went off to catch Timmy. I hid behind a bush, this was hide and seek tiggy after all. I hid behind the bristly bush my head peeking out, I couldn’t see Jessica anywhere. I saw a group of people run across the oval, they looked like they were playing with us, but I still couldn’t see Jessica.
” Hi there!” Jessica said. I ran, she followed me. I ran around the bushes and through the oval, then I tripped, in two big footprints. I lay on my back looking at the prints.
“What the heck.” Jessica said.
I sat on the comfy, blue couch. My kitchen rules was about to start, and I couldn’t miss out on the last episode. I sat there with my popcorn chewing on it noisily, but I mean why couldn’t I my parents weren’t home and my brother was at a friends place. Then suddenly it went dark. The TV shut off and all the lights on in the house stopped working. What?? I thought. Then the lights and the TV switched back on just as quickly as they turned off. Then I saw a shadow in the corner of the living room. Oh my god, I thought.
We walked through the maze, our hearts beating fast. Every corner we turned was with fear, nothing was more scary than this maze. Archie and I were terrified after we saw the gatekeeper of the maze and turned the corner immediately. We made a quick right turn as we saw the gatekeeper running towards us, as it came rushing towards us we noticed that in its left eye, it was blind. This was our chance, a chance to get out of this maze once and for all. Because there it was, at the end of the path, the chance to escape.
I have this really annoying sister Scarlet. She’s so annoying that today when I was still asleep she threw a cushion on my face. And she likes to play the violin at 5:00 am every morning in my room. Just because she wants too. She says she needs to practice, but really, at 5:00 am!! And one day, you won’t be able to believe this but I was just being casual, watering the plants and she comes around with a bucket of water and tips it on me. Then says it was an accident. I remember my reaction:
“YOU’RE SO ANNOYING” I screamed dripping in water.
“Miss, could you just sit there please, thank you.” It was school photo day, and more specifically, year 6 photo day. Every year my school photos have been so bad, so this year I was determined to make it good. I did my hair up in a nice way and made sure that my face was clean. I sat down on the stool and sat in the position the photographer had told me to do. This was it, my year 6 photo. I smiled broadly as the photographer clicked the flash. But, the flash made me blink. Damn it, I thought. Another year, another disappointment.
