The Incident by Zach

One day there was an explorer named Thomas Henderson. He was well known throughout Ireland. He discovered The Lost City Of Gold. He was setting out on a journey to the very dangerous Ruins Of The Amazon Jungle. He always travelled with his trusty companion David Harris. As they were walking they came to a stop it was a giant ledge Thomas told David to hold the rope as he went down. Thomas said “ Are you holding it tight”, “I’m trying to hold on” he shouted. The rope slipped out of David’s hands Thomas fell down and David stood there laughing…

A Sticky Situation by Oliwia

Sara and Greg were going mountaineering later that morning. They packed all their necessities in a bag and drove off. Soon enough they arrived at their destination. They went on the long trail as they were experienced climbers. They were nearly at the top of a mountain when suddenly the gravel Greg was standing on collapsed. Time seemed to have slowed down for the both of them when this horrible turn of events took place. Luckily though Greg had caught on to a rock that protruded from the steep hill. “HELP”, he shouted knowing he couldn’t hold on for long. Sara knew she’d have to act fast. If she didn’t Greg would lose his grip and fall to his death. “I’m trying to hold on”, he shouted more loudly this time. She frantically searched her bag for the piece of rope she brought with her. When she finally found it, she rushed over to help Greg.

Wrong-way…turn around?” Mr. Bronnekan was speechless, “I…” The police took him away with a sad look on his face. We waited there speechless until our parents could come to pick us up.

“Come on let’s keep moving for another few minutes and then we can go back OK?? Why are you not answering,” he said.

Dan looked around, then he realised that Frisk was gone. He looked around and then he realised that there was a very big hole in the ground where they just passed, he sprinted to the hole and looked down, there she was, hanging from the edge.

“Hold on Frisk.”

I’m trying to hold on,” she shouted …

“John come down stairs to get your breakfast.”

“Coming mam.”

As he was coming down the stairs he had an idea.

“I am trying to do a challenge, I’m trying not to hold on,” he shouted and within a second he fell of the banister and down the stairs. His mam rushed out to see what had happened and seen that John was lying at the bottom of the stairs…
