The Closet by Darragh

James was walking down the orphanage stairs. The stairs were old and the wood was rotted. He tried not to make any sound. Suddenly he heard a noise. He knew he shouldn’t be up after hours if he was caught the orphan keeper would hang him up side down and feed him to the birds. He was

scared. Suddenly he saw a closet he ran as fast as he could.

He waited till it was morning. He woke up and opened the closet door. He stepped out but he wasn’t in the orphanage any more instead he was at a creek…

  1. What a great job you did of introducing your character and the setting in such a brief first sentence Darragh. Orphanages in stories are often harsh places and that definitely seems to be the case in your tale, but I wonder what adventures James might find through this strange closet?
    Well done and keep rising to the Challenge.
