Week 10 The bomb By Colin Copy

I gazed at the poppy field from my bedroom window. The red poppies glistening gently in the morning frost. I strolled down the newly carpeted stairs. “I’m going to the fields” I bellowed as I stepped onto the stone porch. Slowly I stepped off the porch and closed the door. I opened the kennel  door to my golden retriever, Max. I grabbed a leash and clipped it onto his collar. I strolled down the passage to the poppy field. A gentle breeze flicking at my hair. I got to the gate and slipped back the beam. I unclipped the leash and he bolted away. I knelt down and prayed for the soldiers who fought in WWI.

Week 9 Magic by Colin

There was a battering on my bedroom window as I peered out for my neighbour, James Hartman, to arrive. Ever since he moved in next door everything changed. He thought me how to do magic. I have been learning for 4 years now and am growing in strength. His car pulled up in front of his house. I pulled on my boots, stood up and walked out of my room. I walked out the front door and stepped onto the porch. I could see two men in the back of his car. I strolled over as casually as I could and opened the door. The orange one spoke first. He said he was a private detective and was looking for a prisoner and needed my help. I grinned in joy.

Week 7 Soul catcher on the loose By Colin

She ran up a fleet of stairs. Her breath ragged and rasping. “The soul catcher must be up here” she said. She rounded a corner and burst through a double doors. Up ahead in the long white corridor a ghost-like figure hovered off the ground.

She looked down and pulled her revolver from the holster. She rapidly raised her head and could feel the sweat trickling down her cheek. “But where did it go?” she shouted as she ran down the corridor. She rounded a sharp corner and sprawled to the ground. Suddenly she felt a figure pounce on her.

Week 6 The heist By Colin

I took a sharp corner – my arm whacking off the crisp white wall. The art museum security guard was hot on my tracks. I slammed into a double doors and stumbled to the cold marble tiled floor. The guard burst through the door and tripped over me. He sprawled out on the floor and I elbowed his back. He howled in pain and I fled the scene. I turned another sharp corner and tripped. My head hitting a door. It flew open and I peered in. My eyes widened when I saw a crisp bar of gold. I stumbled over and tried lifting it. It was heavier than I expected. Suddenly I felt a dart of pain in my back. I howled in agony.

Week 5 Experiment X By Colin

“Hand me the syringe, Civet” he called from the corner of the room.  Civet look at him with a bamboozled expression.

“Are you sure sir”? She called back.

“Sure I’m sure” He grumbled.

Civet opened a small drawer and took out a sharp syringe and walked over to him. Each stepped echoing through the grim room.

“Do you have the syrup, sir?” She said in a hushed voice.

He snatched the syringe and stuck the needle in a bottle. He walked through a pair of doubled doors and Civet followed. He was next to a Gigantic man and stabbed the man in the leg… Suddenly it came to life!!

Week 4 The break in By Colin

I stepped out of my car about a mile from the castle. Knowing that Serpine would have his guards on the lookout. I turned the key in my 1994 Bentley and opened the door. I closed the door behind me and strolled along the dirt track. I touched my revolver in my pocket to make sure I had it. I could see the castle wall ahead and even more clearly see the robust guards. They held up their scythes and sprinted towards me. I could sense the danger and turned around. Lunging my body forward and breaking into a sprint, I eventually saw the car up ahead and jumped in. I turned the key but the engine only groaned. The guards had smashed the glass and opened the doors.

Week 3 The Cycling Race : By Colin

“This is the biggest youth cycling race in Ireland,” I thought to myself.

I hopped on my yellow Trek bicycle and cycled to the start line. I greedily pushed my way to the front. All the while my heart was beating in an erratic pattern from the unbearable excitement. I looked up as the robust commissaire warned us not to go on the wrong side of the road. He exclaimed it in a firm voice so that we got the message.

Eventually, he blew his black whistle and I pushed off. My breath was heavy as I broke away from the main bunch. Suddenly a car turned the sharp corner onto the road. I was desperate to pull my brakes but was not sure if I would get to them fast enough…

Week 2 The plane crash by Colin

A man in a black coat stood up and reached into his rucksack taking out an AK47. I was terrified as he walked from his seat to the isle. Then everything stopped and six shots rang out.

I felt a sharp bullet swiftly slice through my hoodie. I ducked down and cried for help. The man shot the glass of the window two rows ahead of me. He shot the engine and smoke flew out.

The plane tilted and the pilot lost control. The pilot told us not to be alarmed and to put on the air masks. Suddenly we hit the ice-cold water. The plane began filling with water!!

Week 1 The Statues by Colin

I saw the two status there before but I wondered had they moved. Surely not I thought, squinting my eyes. I was talking about the two bronze statues outside the local bank. On one of the statues the name Commander  Dan was engraved in the suit it wore. On the other General Jacob.

Was it a war I wondered as I walked past and sat on the bench next to the statues. Unexpectedly I felt a tap on my head. I turned around and saw nothing. I was very confused and stared back down at the erratic pattern of the pavement. Again I felt a tapping and stood up. This time I saw one of the statue’s mouth open.

The procedure By Colin

I entered the laboratory. I threw the last bit of my avocado in the  bin as I walked into my test room. I exhaled as I opened a drawer and took out a small white rectangular box. I took a syringe and walked over to a large metal door. I took the cold gold key out of my pocket and slipped it swiftly into the hole. I could feel my breath getting heavy as I pushed the steel door open… A wild elephant. I could see the bones of the other elephants that had endured the procedure. I rooted threw my other pocket and pulled out a purple liquid that our seahorses left behind after they died. I took 50 ml from the tube and stuck it in the elephant’s back leg.
