SIZZLE! POP! BANG!
Oscar leapt out of bed to see what it was, but he couldn't see anything.
In the morning he wondered if it was a dream. Oscar told his Mum he was going to practise football in the garden, but instead he ran out into the woods to find out what made that extremely loud noise in the night.
When Oscar got to the woods there was a massive fire that was not spreading through the trees or burning them.
Since the fire wasn't doing any damage, Oscar wondered if it would hurt him. Foolishly, he put his hand in the fire and badly burnt himself.
When he removed his hand, there was a flash and a big pair of metal legs appeared.
It was early hours of the morning and lighting struck and the rain crackled onto the roof tops of our, old house. Trees swaying side-to-side. Then suddenly CRASH!
As we looked something was appearing through a crack, in the ground,an old tree stump with some rusty weird looking legs, leaning on it. What could it be? Where did it come from? I had better tell my Mum and Dad but they said they didn’t know either.
This was strange, so I ran up back up to my room to see if it would move if not it would be a statue.
Where did it come from? Did it fall from the sky?
Today is the day that the 100 Word Challenge picture is taken, and they have asked me (Mr. Tomkins) to be in it!
While driving to the garden where the picture was going to be taken my phone rang. “Buzz, Buzz. Buzz, Buzz!” I pulled to the side of the road to answer it.
“Hello, who’s there?” I asked.
“Hi, it’s Sue from the 100 Word Challenge here, I phoned to tell you that you are unbelievably late! We have been waiting for over an hour now and we are running out of time. Could you be here as soon as possible please?”
“Yes, sure I’ll be there in around five minutes depending on the traffic. Sorry, see you there.”
I parked my car outside the garden and jumped out. “I’m sorry I’m late! I forgot my camera.”
“Never mind!” she replied and handed me a mirror.
“What is this?” I asked.
“A mirror, a magic mirror.”…
One day my son and I were walking home from his school when a man ran past, he grabbed me and said. ''Don’t touch that mirror!'' and sprinted off. We didn't really trust the man because he looked like a bit of a prankster, so I picked the mirror up, held it in front of me and could not see my reflection. We took it home. The dog knocked it, it fell into the wall and we could see his reflection. I picked it up and there was another dog identical to him. We all started trying to break it, but it was unbreakable, after a while it said. ''Please don't hurt me I don't mean harm.'' We didn't know what to do, so we threw it away. But then... THE MAGIC MIRROR
When I was walking to Boarding School, I tripped over something that felt odd “What’s this?”, I yelped. Strangely, I heard a reply. I was terrified. I looked around. No one was there. I looked down at the the picture frame and a face had appeared. It’s mouth was moving. ‘That’s what made the noise!’ I said to myself as I began to run away. “Please don’t go!”said the picture frame. I’m lonely on this path and all I want is a friend to hang me up on their wall. “I suppose it won’t hurt putting you up and It would be nice to give the house a bit of LIFE…”
