100wc-Picture Prompt

My breath cold. My whole body is shaking and my back pressed against against the wall. I look around the blind corner of the wall. There I see the giant golden maned beast standing there, it’s teeth gritted and dripping with saliva. This is the problem with being a night zoo keeper, you could be eaten alive. All I did was try to feed the lion and it got out, and it’s hungry and after me. All I do is run. I sweat till my body can’t squeeze any more sweat out of my sweat glands. Oh no! Dead end…

100wc- …’when did it arrive?’ I said

“Hey Billy, there’s a package for you!” says mum.

“Really?” I ask, my eyes glued to a Pokemon XY book. “When did it arrive?” I said.

“Yesterday,” she says. Mum shows up at my door 10 seconds later with a rectangular shaped package.

Straight away I threw down my comic and grabbed the Pokemon box. I open my first pack. I frantically rush through all the cards to see if I got and good ones. I am worried. This is my first pack, which for me is lucky. I take the next card out. I find a Rainbow Rare Charizard GX!

BTN-Ring of Fire (2009 content)

September 29th, about 7am, a huge earth quake tore through coastal villages in Samoa, turning homes and streets to ruin and leaving people devastated. I understand this will be horrible to live in. The earth quake from the sea floor. Then another earth quake hit Samatra. Could these be connected?  Scientists are looking into this still to see what happenened.

How many people died?

I wonder how they both happened at the same time.


“Stop the car!” I shouted. “Come on dad your driving too fast,”

“No I can’t stop,” he grunts back. His body is stiff against the acceleration pedal.

It is a misty day and we are driving at high speed. I can’t take this anymore. I push him to the side to try to get him to push it. I grab the steering wheel and frantically jerk it to the side. We start weaving through all the lanes including the bike lane.  Suddenly the car flips. Our crimson red car flies through the air. We crash. I visit dad’s grave everyday.

Btn-Anzac Day (Sorry, colour code stuffed up again)

This article talks about a boy named Anzac. He is the fifth person in his family with that name. They have all been named this in memory of his great, great grandfather. He was listed in the army in 1950, and this was a big deal because he was aboriginal and married. This was when the aboriginals weren’t considered as citizens if Australia. Australia’s first part of the war was Gallipoli. They were told it was going to be easy. Why would they say that? I understand that no war is going to be easy. He survived the first war then went to Egypt, then France. Then, was reported missing. Later, in 1960, they found out that he died in action of the war. He was one of 60,000 Australians that died in World War 1. His medals were returned home by his great, great, great grandmother. Then, soon they got given to Anzac’s family. Those medals are the originals, and are probably quite hard to find. Now they celebrate Anzac Day, and not just for Gallipoli, but for people who have risked their lives fighting in the war and protecting our country.

100wc-Picture Prompt

My dad is an inventor. He invented a giant pair of robotic legs that we can ride. Today we tested them.

We ran through the trees and the streets, as if no-one even knew we were there. It was the best thing that I had ever done in my entire life.

“These are the world’s first pair of giant robot legs,” said my dad, flicking a switch on the remote. The legs went faster.

“Oh no!” I scream. My dad and I fall off the pair of legs and watch as they run away. They smash a building over. CRASH!

100wc-…Although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress… (99)

They ran and ran. It would catch them!

Although they ran quickly, they were not making enough progress. It had just rained down in buckets, hard, and right on the park. Joseph’s feet squelched in the wet mud. His friend Josh was behind him. “Josh?” he called. He stopped.

“Josh?” He asked again. Still, no answer. He looked behind him. There was no sign of him. He could see a shadow in the darkness. It jumped out at him. Joseph screamed. The screen went black.

“That movie was so boring,” said Simon.

“The graphics were horrible too,” said Bill.
