Week 16: Running For Life by Jack

As the algid, bitter night approached, I roamed the hostile, inimical town. I turned around to see two odd looking men emerging from behind a wall carrying  a very unusual shaped bag. Curious, I wanted to know what was in it. Right then, they spotted me. Without thinking, I ran, not once looking back…..

Eventually, I had to stop. Gasping for breath, I listened all around. Nothing. I looked in front and behind. Which way? Suddenly, a spine-shivering shout made me forget everything and run.

Panting heavily, I ran down an alley, only to find the one thing that could stop me. A dead-end……..

  6. Dear Jack
    I loved your story it was great.
    I would’ve liked to know what was in their bags maybe it was their tools.
    This reminds me of a story homer told to Bart and Lisa about a guy that goes around killing people with some top he hangs them.

  10. Hi Jack
    We have just read your 100 word challenge on our smart board. Congratulations on being showcased but we’re not surprised as your story is excellent. Oscar thinks you used really good words eg emerging instead of coming out of and spine-shivering. Stephen (who also got showcased) says your story is thrilling. Well done from all in Ms O’Keeffe’s class in Kinvara.

  11. Amazing story Jack! Great use of ellipses! What was in the men’s bag? Hope there is a part two! You used the prompt very well. We liked the upstaged vocabulary. We liked the fact that it is a mystery story. Keep up the good work Jack!

  12. Hi Jack,
    Happy new year! And it looks like you have started 2017 with a bang, what an excelllent piece of writing. I think everyone else has already said everything that I wanted to say! Your word choices are excellent, there are some words that I might need to look up in a dictionary. You have also controlled your writing really well with sentences of different length to give a feeling of suspense for the reader.
    I am going to use this as an example of a fantastic piece of writing for my class if that’s ok, they could learn a lot from you!
