Race to Freedom (Star Wars)
The roar of the engine was the only thing
he heard. Thoughts were racing through
Anakin’s mind. In the blink of an eye the
pods were off with the pilots in the cockpits.
Littered around the track were jagged rocks
blocking certain routes. The young boy
could smell oily fumes in the dense air.
Coming into view were Tuskan Raiders with
their guns poised at the ready.

As I shivered in excitement and
nervousness, I caught a glimpse of the
French ships creasing the rippling waters
with their oars. They soared like elegant
doves across the swaying sea current. There
was a crisp icy wind that enveloped me like
a blanket. Sternly, my father looked me in
the eye though he didn’t need to tell me the
time had come to prove myself, his stone
cold stare told me everything.
An exciting story beginning by William
Slowly, terribly the monster came alive. Its arms and
legs began to move and gingerly it sat up. The gory
creation I had made ripped off the thick black wires,
stood up and glared at me. I stumbled back a step in
fear at first but then in my emotions, I felt ecstatic for I
had created a monster of my own and I could feel his
feelings. The monster had black oil-like hair which gave
him a long fringe on the left side of his face. His skin
was like a rotten lemon and his red, hot steaming eyes
looked like a burning bonfire. He had massive, bulky
green fists that looked like they could destroy a hotel.
He lifted them up and brought them down with such
terrific force that they smashed the transparent glass on
the box containing the scientific plans. A huge electric
shock went through it WHIZZ! BANG! POP!. Sparks went
sizzling through the air as the electric mast collapsed
through the roof. Unaware of what was behind me, I
turned around and saw a giant hole in the wattle and
daub wall. All I could see was the coal black night sky
and people in the street running away from this horrible
monster as quickly as possible.
The Warrior’s Tale
A long time ago in China, there was a village
called Chong-Ling where our story takes place.
In this village lived a 17 year old boy called
Hong Chang who shared a house with his
mother and father. But...... this village was
haunted by a dragon. This dragon lived in the
craggy mountains that surrounded the village.
Once a week, he came down from his lair and
gobbled up all the food in Hong-Chang. Soon it
was all gone and food was scarce. There was
only one option and that was to send brave
warriors up to the mountains.
