Week 10 : Coffin house by Ewan

We were all in the workhouse hoping for the impossible  – freedom. But we all knew what the word impossible meant. Once you’re in this absolutely horrific place the only way out was a coffin.

Outside one of the few windows, we could see children queuing but where were they going? We could not see where they were queueing for because we could not see where the back of the line was.

And all we were all thinking was we wish we could be there at the back of that line instead of this dreadful place.

One day I will hopefully be there.

  10. Well done Ewan. I like how you have used the prompt. You’ve created a very sombre mood in your story. Even though you don’t say specifically where they are, it doesn’t sound like a very nice place. I imagined it to be a workhouse.
    Great writing.

  11. Hi Ewan, I’d like to know what that queue was for too! I’m thinking it might be a story similar to ‘The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas’ and not a very pleasant place to be. Great story.

  12. Fantastic job, Ewan. I liked the way you expressed your feelings and maybe next time you could have used more descriptive language.

    Well done! ???
