It was a horrible winters day. Jake and Gilmour were trying to adorn the house for Christmas Day. They had to switch off the power for five minutes. So they could put up a new socket in the wall. The lights went out and when they turned back on the power. There was a flash of light, then, darkness filled the house. The power was gone… Jake was afraid because their phones needed to charge. They were afraid to leave the house because they did not think it was safe. About seven hours later the power came back.

White Room by Rose

I opened my eyes groggily, ‘How long was I out?’ I looked around the room. It was all white, with one black intercom in the corner of the room. I was strapped onto a wooden chair. My mouth was, luckily, free to move around. The room didn’t seem to have any doors, or the door was well hidden. A female voice started speaking through the intercom.

”It’s a good thing you finally woken up! I was starting to wonder if we actually killed you!”

”Huh-?!” Who was that?! I’m so confused! then suddenly, I saw a flash of light, then, darkness.

I.. remember.. How I ended up here.

”Oh? I didn’t expect you to realize your situation so quickly! You’re pretty smart!”

He wouldn’t ever go in there again!

A River by Rose

My boss, Mr. Rule told me to excavate the nearby forest on my island. It was going to be dangerous but I was trained well on how to protect myself. I took out my dagger to cut through the thick leaves and branches. It was tiring work but I soon collected some of the medicinal herbs like the Reishi Mushrooms, one of the things I was sent for. I looked for a specific type of bark next. Now, this took a good amount of time but I finally found it! I peeled it of carefully, this tree does looks wrinkled and sick but it’s actually healthy. I walked some more until a reached a river, with a canoe and both oars. I looked around with a wistful, bittersweet smile, this was such a beautiful part of the forest with the sunrise at dawn. I was about to turn back when my attention was diverted to a forceful roar.

Time to Rule by Kyle

It would give you the golden oar. Whenever you sat in a wooden boat, you could teleport anywhere. Finally, it would give you the power to stay at any age you wished, and your body would never get wrinkled. While Niamh said she would find it, Sarah knew she would get there first.
