Week 18: The Leap of Faith By Liam O

I was sitting on the bench waiting for the train to arrive looking at my phone when I heard some rustling in the bush. I turned around and saw a bunch of soldiers dash out from the bush. With my heart pounding, I jumped off the bench and screamed.

A soldier came up to me and said: “everything is going to be alright but first you need to get out of here.”

I said, “but I’m waiting for my train.”

He replied with “just go” in an annoyed voice.

“But it is SO slow…I…I… oh alright,”

Reluctant and confused I agreed. I grabbed my phone and went for the bridge. I knew the only way was to get across.

As I was running the middle of the train exploded leaving a gap in it.

“I can do this- it is not that big” I whispered to myself. I walked back slowly and then dashed for it. I jumped as high as I could. I closed my eyes and when I opened them I was on the other side of the bridge. “I made it” I said to myself. “I made it.”
