Week 4: The Robbery By Benny

There was something fishy happening. The ghastly voices sent chills down my spine. I was too terrified to go downstairs. What if someone was downstairs? I knew I had to go down at some point. I finally gathered enough courage to do it. I started walking along until the floor creaked. I froze. Two people ran up the stairs. One had an orange shirt on. The other was dressed fully in black. The orange one spoke first. He had a ghastly, deep voice. I ran out of my house. …When I went back in they were gone.

Week 7: The Missing Phone By Benny

I was always on my phone and my mom didn’t like it. She sent me shopping on purpose just to get me off my phone. I went to the shop in a hurry. I was walking back up the hill and decided to ask my friend to come over. When we arrived I asked her to get my phone from my room. She couldn’t find it. “But where did it go?” she shouted.

I went up to help her look and realised it actually wasn’t there. I knew my mom must have taken it. We searched and I found it at last. I fumbled with my phone and dropped it which made a loud bang. My mom came up and we were caught red-handed.

Week 6 The Mixup By Benny

I ran swiftly towards the train while pulling my ticket out. I had a meeting on and had to be early. On the train I sat down next to a man with the exact same bag. It was an awkward silence between us for the whole trip. When I arrived, I took my bag and left the train. It was heavier than I expected. I went inside and they were all waiting for the paperwork. I checked my bag and found rocks inside. I was confused. They became irate when I told them I took the wrong bag on the train.

But why was the other bag full of rocks?

Week 5: The Wishing Well By Benny

It wasn’t fair that I was so small. I wasn’t allowed on any rides since I was so small. I was the smallest in my class. I saw a well in the distance next to a few food stands. I sat down and decided to buy a hotdog. I had spare change so I threw it in the well and made a wish.

I woke up the next day and realised I had grown. I grew a bit too much. When my mom walked into my room she screamed. She immediately rang a doctor. He then gave me an antidote and I was cured.

Week 4 The Amusement Park By Benny

I was finally allowed to go to the amusement park by myself. I decided to bring 3 close friends with me. As we walked in I could smell the delicious smell of popcorn. We chose to go on the rides instead. We split up since we all wanted to go on different rides. I decided to go on a horror ride. The people who just got off were as pale as ghosts and that sent shivers down my spine. I hopped on and was ready to go when it just wouldn’t take off. We were told that the ride needed some fixing. I was disappointed that I didn’t get to go on that ride.

Week 3: The Mistake By Benny

I was glum because I was told I wasn’t allowed a bicycle. I felt like releasing my anger on my sister but I decided to go on a walk instead. I was desperate for a bicycle.

Suddenly an old man walked up to me and showed me a stunning yellow bicycle. I immediately became suspicious. He warned me that if I used it in a bad way it would disappear. I accepted the offer and greedily snatched it off him.

The next day I bragged to my friends about my new bicycle. They asked if they could try it but I didn’t allow them. When I woke up the next day it wasn’t there…I should’ve used it properly.

Week 2 The Dream By Benny

I suddenly woke up to the sound of my mom shouting at me. I was late for school! I didn’t have time to eat. I ran into the car. My mom started yelling at me for waking up late. I shouted back that she should’ve woken me up. We were starting to argue.

I tried to tell my mom to focus on driving but she kept arguing. She suddenly turned around to see a car flying at us. Then everything stopped… and I woke up.

It was time for school. I realised it was just a dream!

Week 1 The Weeping Angel By Benny

Last night was the night when my friend and I had a sleepover. We were telling stories all night long. There was one particular story he told me about. ‘The Weeping Angel’.

It was about statues moving. They would creep up behind you and touch you. If they touched you, you would turn into one. If you looked at them they froze. It was by far my favourite story.

I woke up the next morning and there was no one there. I looked out of my window and saw statues everywhere. My heart sank. I then felt a slight tap on my shoulder. I turned around and that face was the last thing I saw…

The Disappointing Zoo By Benny

The day had come at last. It was our school tour. We were going to the zoo. I was never at a zoo before. My friends said the zoo was boring and all you do is look at animals.  That sounded pretty boring. I noticed the person  next to me was eating avocado. I HATED avocado. I couldn’t stand the smell. When we were there we were given a map. The zoo was massive! It was also a museum and an aquarium. The first animal we saw was a tiger which was eating bones. The last thing we saw were the purple seahorses. We didn’t even see the elephants!
