Week 38: The last Speech: By Liam A

It was a dull day. The bombings sirens were still going off.  There was a letter sent out to every house in the town.  On each one of them, there was a gold stamp with the letter M on it.  When I opened it, it was from the mayor. He said for us all to be in the hall for the last speech. The Mayor was as fat as an elephant so everyone called him “The Elephant” but he didn’t mind. After a while, we got to the hall and the Elephant delivered his speech. “Now people I know this has been very scary but… BANG!!!

A bomb had hit the hall there were about 500 hundred people in it and not one lived.

  1. Goodness me Liam, what a shocking ending! How sad. I do like the opening though which simply and effectively sets the scene, perhaps also hinting at what might unfold later. I wonder why it was ‘the last speech.’ Had the mayor come to the end of his term of office, or was there another reason?
    Well done and keep rising to the Challenge.

  2. Wow Liam – I didn’t expect that ending!
    I thought how you introduced the prompt was very clever of you.
    Great work. Well done!
