Week 37 Tomb of the Lost Mummy by Dylan

My trusty assistant Viola and I searched for years to find the lost, ancient mummy’s tomb.

Finally, after an awful sandstorm, a dark crevice was revealed on the side of a pyramid. We slowly and carefully crawled through it in case it collapsed. When we got to the other side, the most magnificent room came into view.

There was a giant sarcophagus made out of gold, with rubies, sapphires and diamonds on it. The room was filled with gold and precious jewels. As soon as we touched a gold chalice on the ground, the whole room began to crumble.

Luckily we got out alive but with no gold. We decided to keep the tomb a secret.

  1. Congratulations on your response to this week’s challenge Dylan. It is not easy to create an interesting, coherent text using random words! I connected with your text as soon as you mentioned a mummy – I find the pyramids, and everything about them fascinating. I was able to visualise your story because of your careful choices of precise adjectives and adverbs. I also like the variety, and complexity of your sentences. I am nominating your response for the Special Showcase. Well done!

  2. Well done Dylan – another great story.
    It sounds like a lot of these tombs don’t like to be disturbed …and if you do disturb them you suffer the consequences!
    It looks like you were lucky to survive.
