Chelsea’s 100 Word Challenge – …but it is yellow…

During the windy, wet and cold morning, as heavy rain falls, I sit in my chair thinking of something to do. I watch two raindrops race down the window wondering which one will win. All of a sudden the earth starts to shimmer, Mr Andrew and all my friends begin to pass out. Miss Hoskin screams and tries to wake everybody up, but its no use as we quickly fall to the hard ground I see my grey chair, but it is yellow, everything is yellow.

Mahnee’s 100 Word Challenge – …but it is yellow…

During the pleasant afternoon, as the shoppers move in and out of the shops, Jayde, Mouse and I were desperately looking for gorgeous red dresses for Mouses hens’ night. We stumbled upon a shop called Michelle’s. There were thousands of the most beautiful dresses hanging on the racks. I’m feeling so excited. The dressing room doors were as squeaky as a small grey mouse scurrying around a house. I suddenly spotted the most wonderful red dress. “Can I try this on?” I looked at my reflection in the mirrors. It looks marvellous and it feels wonderful. But it is yellow.

Tristan’s 100 Word Challenge – …but it is yellow…

It is a freezing, cold winter’s day, when the beautiful robins glide swiftly and thoroughly through the giant and tall pointy trees, dodging the slow falling snowflakes as they rain like stars from heaven. I turn my old rusty car off so I don’t alarm the birds, and they continue their business. I can hear the immense trees rustle as their snow covered leaves fall effortlessly to the soft white snow. I imagined the snow looked like a massive fluffy blanket covering the green grass with winter love. I start to open my car door to look at the snow… but it is yellow… Why?

The raging bulls charge towards us, exponentially building their speed and anger with every step they take. A wave of nerves sweep over me as I feel the unstable ground rumble like a devastating earthquake.

I try and sprint away from the massive bulls that chase me with their deadly horns and powerful bodies.
