Red by Oliwia

“Ahh Jack you’re finally awake.”

I look up and find a tall red women standing over me with a smile on her face.

“I’m Selena your nurse”, she said.

I look around the room and realise everything around me is red, I sit up in panic but Selena sits me down.

“I see you’ve realised that red is the only colour you’re capable of seeing,” she said apologetically.

I stumble against words but finally say ,”but how?”

“Well it’s a long story,” she began, “but long story short you were involved in a terrible accident that took away your ability to see every colour but red.”

The Breakthrough by Olivia

Scientists at Oxford made scientific breakthroughs after performing surgery on giraffes to give them vocal chords so they could speak. They also painted each one a different colour as its pride month. We sent Cady (our reporter) down to interview the giraffes.

Cady- So its a real plesure and honor meeting you all . Now I’ll ask you some questions and try to answer them as best as you can. So what do think of global warming, the orange one spoke first and said, ”I dunno”. The green one spoke next, “Ya me niether”, it said. But after all giraffes are giraffes and they don’t understand human things so all of that was very pointless.

“It was on your desk,” snapped Molly.

”I know it was there,” said Mrs White. “But where did it go?” she shouted. Mrs White was sure Molly took it and asked to look through her bag, she pulled out the envelope and said, “You’re in big trouble now Molly.”

I suddenly felt a slight nudge on my left shoulder I turned to look at Bill and saw his unimpressed face. “Come on,” he said, “get out the truck and help me unload these boxes”. I got out of the truck and started helping Bill with the boxes, we were nearly done when I noticed a large box near the end of the truck, I waited for Bill to come back so he could help me, we tried to pick up the box but it was heavier than I expected. I got kind of annoyed and peered in to see what was inside, and what I saw was terrifying and intriguing at the same time.

Once a very careless tourist went to the Shaolin Temple and knocked one of the statues down causing it to shatter beyond repair, and all that was left of it was a handkerchief. But this was no ordinary handkerchief was what the Chinese government found out. It was a hankerchief made from an exotic material that was worth billions of dollars, so the Chinese decided to sell it. When Washington found out about this he wanted it framed in his bedroom, but little did he know Franklin also wanted it. They decided that the most rational thing to do was to start a war (very tragic). Lots of people died including Franklin and Washington.

Black ’47 by Mia

Delph woke up and remembered, she remembered it all. Ma and Da passing away, getting evicted and now living in the streets. She would plead for food like an urchin. Once a young lady in drapes ran cautiously away . Her baby in a portable cradle. Exasperated with herself ,Delph got up and began walking. After walking for hours she was hungry so she stole a loaf of bread and a preserved tart from a market stall. A nearby guard began chasing her . Heart in her throat Delph ran . She sprinted until finding an abandoned building: Somewhere to be sheltered and safe. The candy bar sign illuminated like a hello. She had never been so happy.
