Here are some of the stories that were shared today in class (all stories were written in just 20 minutes!)
We wanted to leave. We didn't belong here. I have a feeling we were meant to explore the horrible black ship. I will never know.
They sent me out into the big wide ocean, we swam around. What was I meant to do? Why were we sent? I looked back at the small marooned boat floating in the sea. The ones on the boat gestured towards the black ship ahead of me. I swam forward and put my drenched hand on the ship's side.
The boat shivered. Can a boat shiver?
As it shivered, they stared at me. Why look at me? Just questions that need answers.
I float down slowly to the ground, the wind supports me as I look down. Sinking gracefully downwards I see a cherry blossom. A group of children approach us at a speedy pace. I reach out to touch it but it's too late. As it shivered, they trampled it carelessly. Once the children had passed all that was left was a pink splodge on the pavement. I felt so helpless. After a while of mourning I allowed the wind to take me away. For days I floated until finally I crumpled and shattered like a leaf. Is that all I was. A leaf.
I woke up and my back was hurting and I looked -wow they were silver and gold wings. I had a dream about me floating. Oh wait that must mean I could fly so I got onto the window sill and thought 'how can I fly?' Then I remembered that the only way it will work when it's cold so I waited for ten minutes. I was cold, same as the wings, as it shivered, they suddenly leaped into the air and started flapping like crazy it was true. I was flying through..I smacked into a tall tower. Ka Splat!
I felt the presence of someone else. Fear and anxiety was filling the room. Someone else was here. Everything was pitch black. Everything was silent, but I could feel something, something strange. Momentarily I had a mental picture of it. Not a human. not an animal. It was something else altogether. Suddenly a trapdoor was released and I was falling, plunging into darkness. At this moment I had another picture. Stuck in a cage, freezed. Three evil scientist keeping it as a prisoner. As it shivered they they just laughed and chatted between them. I wanted to help it, but all I could see was black.
