Hi, it has been an age since I updated this and for that I can only apologise, I have lost a great helper to my site and am on the look out for a tech savvy volunteer (any offers?)


At the centre of the wood lived a goblin called Gerda. Gerda was very friendly, when he wanted to be, but had a furious temper if someone upset him. He loved playing out by the lake but he was very lonely.

One day Gerda received an obnoxious letter from the Alba post, it read…
Dear enemy Gerda, I’ve been thinking about the past and what happened, I’m starting the war again, prepare yourself!
from Jhonda.

The War was a long time ago it all started like this. Gerda used to be part of Jhonda’s army. Jhonda was a grumpy hobgoblin he used to push around Gerda like a servant. Well, Gerda had had enough of Jhonda so he escaped and when Jhonda found out he declared war!

Two children walked past the sign saying ‘Beware of the Ghost Tree.’ They laughed at it. They came to a dark tree with red fruit hanging on it. They picked some and as they chewed the trees seemed to get bigger. Until they realised it was them shrinking. They spotted a small house in the bottom of the dark tree. They knocked and the door swung open. They went in expecting to find someone but instead the door slammed and they heard the lock turning. A booming voice said ‘you must complete the challenge I set if you wish to escape.’ He explained the challenge. They thought they could do it in the 10 minutes set. In the last 10 seconds they yanked the door until “You have failed!” cried the voice “you shall never leave the ghost tree!” They looked at each other, and they were never seen again!!!!

The metal maiden

Try this or another story start here: http://russbrownauthor.co.uk/story-starts/4586899625

It all started when I looked out the window and saw a women, but no ordinary woman, a woman made of metal from cars and bikes but she could fly. It was amazing a woman who could fly. but the metal began to rust and if it got rusty she would die. so she went to the scrapyard to find more metal to help but there was no metal of her kind so she was bound to die and nothing could help. Unless she visited another scrapyard but she couldn’t cross any motorways in case she was seen but she did it any ways and was caught and captured and was put in a museum and was never seen again.

The colossal, heavy iron lady stood on the lonely grass. Her cogs and pistons interlocked, she stared ahead for what seemed like forever. 

Years passed. Tourists came and went, photographs were taken. But then, after a long time, no-one came. 

One day, some strange men, in a green uniform arrived, dismantled her and took her away. No-one ever saw the Metal Maiden again.

Casey age 11

I had a really good life before my horrible mum sent me to a metal dump when I was four. Will I ever go back I thought? Three consecutive years past! But different happened, so one day I went for a walk and I ended up in a amusing field. After a few days, someone come up to me, gently touched me on the shoulder and whispered “I know what it feels like,” then walked away. Puzzled and confused, I stud there thinking, what was that about? I turned to an angle and saw that an enormous person, made of metal, was standing right behind me “is it real?” I said to myself. Suddenly, I realised it was the girl that came up to me! What happened I thought still puzzled. After a week it was still there but pieces had fallen off. I was thinking in my head is she magic?

The Touch

I tore into the fabric of death itself, layer by layer, trying to reach the hand I will never touch again. The light blinded me. But I knew it was her.
Ever since she had died, I couldn’t stop thinking about her. I saw her in dreams, painful memories. I have thought about her so much that I couldn’t tell if the memories were dreams or if the dreams were memories.

It’s strange. After these desolate years I couldn’t remember much about her, just hazy memories of what colour her hair was, or her eyes. But now, I can remember every feature about her, every single strand of hair. How her eyes shone in the sunlight.

But this is impossible. She was killed years ago, in a car accident.

I pushed back my logical barrier, and reached into her arms.

My lover.

The Light Side

All his life Otto longed to see his sister again, their time together was too miniscule. He wished he had never invited Gilderoy over. The past was the past, the future still waits. Everything went black…
“Guh… ouch… Where?’’ Otto looks around there is nothing there but sheets. No doors, just sheets.

“Where… am… I?” The youthful man ponders. Maybe I got put in a Mental Hospital? Why would they do that? Otto can’t seem to get around the fact he had just woken up in a Mental Hospital!

“HELLO! I’m in here what is going on!?” Screeches the confused man. Otto then hears something, a familiar voice, like a dream.

“Otto? Where is my dear brother?” The voice echos.

“Adriana… But you’re gone!” Otto says confuzzled on what is happening.

“Come join me Otto, grab my hand.” Adriana says. A whirlwind of light appears and a hand pops out the wall. Otto instinctively grabs it, vroom he is gone!

I could hear scratching and banging coming from the other side of the wall. The noise intensified and a tiny hole started to open up before my eyes. Within a few moments, large pieces of plaster started to fall from the mouldy wall onto the dusty, wooden floor of my cell. Suddenly, the hole started to grow, until it was big enough for me to fit through. Eventually, a pale, bony hand stretched through the plaster tunnel and beckoned me to come closer. Instinctively, I sped along the floor and tripped on some ragged, old sheets and paper that I had been using as my bed for months on end. I struggled to my feet and reached out for the hand. Step by step, I clambered through the the wall until I finally reached daylight. I was flabbergasted by the overwhelming sight and was so relieved to be free.

As the light fades, the light turns into darkness the mist of the dark gloomy sky. I was walking down a long corridor of a mansion it was dark as space I heard a sudden shout of a man but it was only me in the house there was brightness coming from the closet I was daring to go in there there was gusts of wind trying to blow the door down, the door was on its last hinge I slowly walked in the closet…there was a younger man standing in front of what it looks like a portal, he was pulling some one through the spinning portal I slowly stepped back. There was a dust storm all around me I quickly ran out a slammed the door behind me I was going to call someone but I was going to leave it to my self no one knows if he is meant to be in hear, no one knows…`

I viscously tore into the fabric of the wall I didn’t know what I was going to find but every time I pulled a piece out it seemed like my heart was cracking until I found her. Her hand reached out to me I leaned into the light of the tunnel, although I was scared, I grabbed her hand and pulled, I pulled so hard that my arms ached. She revealed her pure beauty

“What’s your name young man.” as she said this eeriness rushed through the air

“Peter my name is peter, why am I here? What is this place? Who are you?” I said so worriedly

“You have been in an accident peter I’m here to take you to the skies they are wonderful all the things you would imagine it to be and more”

She grabbed my hands and amazingly we both turned to transparent ghost and we were gone.

Lying there knowing that it could take decades to bring back Luna, Dimension 309 was a tough place to get to, and a very dangerous place to get back from.  I knew what to do, the hard thing was getting it on paper.  Luna I love you to the moon and back, I’ll save you beautiful.


So it’s been two hours now and I’ve nearly got the solution, but this time I have to go into Dimension 309.  There is one finale thing though, due to the dimension being so far away, it could be that Luna will be dead, because of where the dimension is.


Click clickedy click ….   So the time has come, I’m coming for you beautiful.








Here goes nothing.


Wooshhhhhhh woooooshhhhhh cccccquc!


Where are you, are you ok, please answer me…

I couldn’t breathe. Dust clogged my throat and lungs. I lay shivering in the misty darkness; I heard nothing. Scraps of dirty fabrics and paper lay bedraggled all over the wooden floor. I remembered everything so clearly, so clearly it hurt just to open my eyes. Tears dripped slowly from my cold cheeks. It was his test, he sent 5 of us down here, and Mia was one of them.

I had known Mia since I was young; she was the greatest friend I had ever had. But that’s all gone now, I was scared, I hurt them all trying to get my own way. I had to watch them all screaming, getting dragged up a golden tunnel. Mia was the last one up, she cried for me to save her. I didn’t, fear was controlling my body and I couldn’t move. Now I sit here alone, waiting for death…

There was once a man who loved to draw, but what he didn’t know was what he drew became alive. He started to draw little undetailed pictures and as days grew by drew a lot more detailed pictures which people thought were amazing, but one day he drew a man which became real but they didn’t become real in the real world it was in his imagination. The little detailed dwarf became true and all the people in his imagination disliked him until a few days afterwards, the man which was drawing all these characters drew more dwarves and the dwarf’s population grew bigger and bigger until his imagination got full and he began to dislike drawing and one by one the characters started to die. And the old man started to lose his memory but nobody could do anything that was the end of imagination land.

I looked in the grimy room. Dust swirls were creating in the corner. Torn bedsheets were in tatters across the carpeted floor. I stepped inside; my wellingtons squelching on the carpet after every step, leaving mud behind. I felt the dust fill my lungs.

I put my hand against the wall; it was wet. I pulled it away. I heard a shaking sound coming from the wall. I was scared. I tried to run to the doorway but the door shut forcefully.

I looked back at the wall. Something was happening but I couldn’t quite make it out. Slowly, the plaster began to peel away. Behind it was a glowing light that temporarily blinded me. I walked to the Light-I felt drawn to it. Suddenly, a hand appeared, groping around, looking to hold on to something. I reached out my hand and it pulled me out of the room.

My dad passed away today. We just moved house and we love it, however I don’t think it likes us. The other day when we were about to go to bed I heard a wall break and saw a yellow beamed light from under the door, but when I got there to see what was going on there was nothing there. The next day my wife, Kiara went shopping at ASDA so I was alone. I heard a ghostly voice call out to me and sounded like it was telling me to stay calm and relax. I was petrified. As I went back upstairs I saw that the wall was broken again. I peeled off the wall paper and a dead-like hand came out of it. It was my father. He was the one giving me the signs and wanted to take me to heaven. So I let him.

I was walking. I heard a noise. What was it? Nobody knows… I was on my way for a job interview when I heard a sudden scream. I thought nothing of it. I carried on. Then another scream was let out of a window I was slightly more worried but I still carried on. I heard a screech I ran into the old rotten building I heard a girl screaming but she was no-where to be seen. I touch the back wall where the scream was coming from a big hole appeared to another land! A Hand popped out asking mine. Stupidly I put my hand though the wall. That was a day to regret. The hand grabbed mine, everything turned white.  I was right well…. kind of right I was in another world it looked like my friends and family but I was wrong I was never seen again.

It all started with a small idea, an idea starting with a light bulb. 

Madeline had always wanted to take her best friend Alix on an adventure, she wanted to do something with power! So she after days she finally realised what she should do. She didn’t know how it would work, but one thing was for sure, she needed a lot of light bulbs.
Dashing up the hill Madeline drove Alix from the trenches to the very night lit sky at the very top of the jurassic hill. Slowly they walked up together, there on the ground was a brobdingnagian light bulb leaning on its side cracked. They picked up a basket and started to place light bulbs on the grass. They lit up! There was no wire, they hung some from tree branches. They lit up also! 
This was the kind of adventure a lifetime of years would not reward.

The girl (only 8) lives in a poor part of London, she can’t cope at home, with her arguing, her brother always causing trouble. She is the brains of the family, never in any trouble. She was thinking about all of this when suddenly she felt a tug on her leg, she was pulled into the sea. The eerie darkness underneath the sea shocked the girl. She swam around, she spotted some fish which proceeded to swim with her. Her left foot was still being tugged on by whatever was taking her. She was overpowered and couldn’t swim anymore, she was gasping for air, the overwhelming events that had taken place over the last few seconds really shocked her. She was buried under the sea

I wake up from my deep slumber. I slowly get out of the overturned, rusty cage that has kept me imprisoned for as long as I can remember. I pick up my ever glowing lantern as I set about stretching my legs.

“I should have done this a few thousand years ago,” I manage, my voice being gurgled by the on going flow of water.

Oblivious to the fish, big or small, I try to find my way around. After a while, I start to get used to moving my “leg” about. All of a sudden, I feel a pain that goes deep down to the bone. It seems to have come from at the bottom of my body. I look at my damaged Mermaid’s tail and decide to rest it. So I swim back to my cage, curling up into a ball and falling asleep.

I haven’t woken up yet…

Age: 10



One misty morning as I woke up I had a funny dream where I was walking through the hall and I heard a creek but it was only my Dad. He started walking towards me. I didn’t know what to do, but then he started to speak to me. Dad said “find that scroll, find it.” I reply “what scroll?” but by then he had all ready gone.

Suddenly she was surrounded by Manta Rays and her only option was to hide in a dark and gloomy cave. But then, out of the corner of her eye she saw an object and it appeared to be a treasure chest. She tried to carry it up to the surface but it was too much for her, so she whistled to the dolphins and they helped her carry it to the coast. She opened it and found emeralds, a lot of gold coins and a giant ruby. She sold them all at the market and made a lot of money and spent it on a better house and things they needed.

I swam near it and then I went inside it … TREASURE everywhere! As I swam into the dark gloomy cave, my lamp lit the rubies, gold and pearls, lighting a rainbow around me. But suddenly my blonde long hair got caught between the smooth rocks. I was determined to escape, even if it meant losing my beautiful beloved hair! Just then, my luck was in as a friendly, talking, weird fish swam into the cave. The pink spiky big eyed fish realised I was desperate to get away so she kindly untangled my hair quickly.

My amazing adventure started when I sat down at my dressing table to brush my hair. I realised that the reflection looking back at me wasn’t mine. I reached forward to touch the glass and it turned to water beneath my fingers. Before I knew it I had stepped through into a mysterious underwater world. Beside me was a lantern which I picked up to help me explore this strange new place. As I swam along my attention was drawn towards an old shipwreck lying on the sea bed. At first I thought I was alone, but then I noticed that a dolphin was playfully swimming along beside me. We swam together towards the shipwreck and started to explore. It must have been a big boat as there was lots to explore and I was able to imagine how amazing this boat must have been. Something shiny caught my eye and we both squeezed through a tight space towards it. To my surprise I found a chest full of gold coins and other treasures. Maybe this was pirate loot! I slipped one gold coin into my pocket and decided it was time to leave but that was not going to be so easy. When I tried to swim out the same way my dress got caught on an old rusty nail. I tried desperately to free myself but couldn’t. Just as I was starting to panic I felt something pushing me from behind. It was my dolphin friend! With one gigantic push it freed me and with relief we both left the ship. We spent a little more time exploring this exotic world, looking at wonderful fish and sea creatures. All of a sudden I heard a voice calling me. It sounded like my mother! The voice got louder and louder which seemed to echo around me. All of a sudden I woke in my own bed at home. It took me a moment to realise that my amazing underwater adventure was really just a dream. But as I sat up in bed I felt something cold and hard in my hand. When I opened my hand I saw to my surprise a beautiful gold coin so was it all a dream or was it real?

I cannot bring myself to imagine I am under the mysterious sea seeking for my long lost mother. Just to think that this morning I was told where she was all along, by my grandpa. 
       I was only nine when she left; lots of questions spun around my head, making me perplexed. My father passed away in the war, that’s when my mother disappeared.

       My grandpa finally told me the hidden secret; that my mother was a mermaid and needed to go back to her kingdom. When my grandpa confessed to me, I felt a mixture of emotions, I didn’t know whether to cry or be furious. My face must have not had any expression at all.  So here I am under the sea anxiously looking for my mother; I inherited her quality to breathe underwater. As I swim further, a kingdom slowly forms in front of my startled eyes.

Flickers of light came to my eyes, I opened them. The lantern was still lit. Then I realised I was breathing. It was all a blur at first then I could see fish swimming round. I swam for what seemed like hours looking at the wonders of the sea. I came to a ship wreck the eeriness of the sea hit me as I passed through the grimy beams. I saw a light quite close. As I got closer I could see a dark figure. It was a human a human boy. He had the same lantern

Story Starts November 2015 “The wolf wood”


A superb number of entries for this rather scary look at the Red Riding Hood story. Well done to all involved and please leave a comment.


The eye in the sky!

Alice had become accustomed to cutting through Blackwood forest on her way home from school. At first she had found it dark and creepy walking through the wild, eerie woodland. Her gran had bought her an iPod for Christmas, she used the music to drown out the howling wind. Her mother had often told her legends of how the forest could see and hear all! Alice took no notice and continued to walk through the forest. One blustery November evening, Alice wrapped her favorite scarlet cloak tightly around her. The temperature started to drop. She was nearly home now. Suddenly a gust of wind knocked her over! She felt something watching her. She looked up at the sky. She was horrified at what she saw staring at her! It was an eye in the sky …

Age: 9


It was coming for me! The dark figure towered above the shadowy, mysterious trees. It had huge luminous eyes and teeth as sharp as a knife. It seemed to blend in with the trees, dark and swirling. I was running for my life now and no matter how fast I went it still kept up with me. I could see, even by looking at its shadow on the floor that the monster, the mammoth, life threatening monster, was glaring down at me like an eagle spying his prey. Once I dared to look up I saw that it was the most terrifying thing that you would see, a wolf as black as night! Suddenly, without any warning, it dived down its teeth bared, its eyes red with anger and-…I woke up gasping, I felt my forehead I was sweating. ‘It didn’t eat me?’ I thought, confused.

Age: 9


Hauntingly, the eye swooped down to catch the screaming girl.  She ran from it as fast as she could…but it was catching up fast.  Carly kept running from the majestic, glowing creature as it chased her through the forest.  She ran into a tree and crashed to the ground.

Slowly and cautiously she found the courage to stand and saw the eye glaring at her evilly.  “What do you want?”  She cried tensely.  “YOU’RE LIFE!” the creature shouted.  The girl tried to escape the haunting wrath but the evil thing grew hands out of the sides of his eye and grabbed her and threw her to the ground!  “Think you can run away from me huh?”  “Leave me ALONE!” Carly demanded.  “I can’t” he said meanly “I need food”, Carly stood up while the monster was distracted.  She hit it and ran for her life…

He ran home very frightened to tell his granddad and his mum but when he got home no one was around and all the windows and doors were creaking and banging open and shut in the wind. “OH dear” Zach shouted where has everybody gone, I am all alone and very very scared. He sat down with fright…………………..

Suddenly there was a shrieking sound coming from behind her!!   So she ran in the other direction but she was heading the wrong way, she did not know it.   She spotted a mystery key on the dirty floor, she picked up the key and dusted the mud of it.  Through the mist a creepy door appeared in the distance, she looked up and headed towards it.  When she approached it she wriggled the key in the lock to open it, but the door was stuck solid and she had to shove it with her shoulder.  Then it burst open!

On the other side of the creepy door there was more darkness, she stepped inside and the door slammed shut behind her.  She was left alone and scared in another dimension, what was she going to do?  How was she going to get out of this one………

Rose went out just after 10 o’clock. She was expecting to see lots of stars but she sadly saw none. All she could see was clouds. The clouds looked like a wolf and this was peculiar.

The clouds started to close in on Rose and Rose began to panic. Suddenly the clouds opened like the wolf was going to howl and that is when Rose began to run. The clouds chased after her until they ran into sunlight.

The sun was shining brightly and the clouds were disappearing. The sky was blue with the sun shining high. Have I been out this long? she was asking herself.

What am I going to do! I panicked. The beast was getting closer and closer, it’s wet nose sniffing the air trying to hunt me down. Its gigantic paws thundered along the ground. Its claws scraped along the tree bark.  My heart was pounding and my legs felt like jelly.

Suddenly a storm started to form, and out of the dark haunting fog came a gigantic fiery eye staring down at me. Slowly the creatures mouth opened: inside I could see hundreds of fangs. I closed my eyes in terror. “Kirsty Kirsty!” the creature groaned in a haunting spooky voice.  Expecting to see the monster, I opened my eyes, but instead saw my brother’s eyeballs.

“Kirsty,” he shouted.

“AHHHHHHH,” I screamed, “What are you doing in my room!”

“Mum told me to wake you up.” he replied. Wow, who thought your brother could give you a nightmare.

Alone & terrified, I charged through the forest. I heard it, HOWLING loudly.  I tried to hide, but I couldn’t run fast enough. The howl got louder… and louder. The trees tore my clothes; it was as if they wanted me to get eaten. I darted into a cave and tried to blend in. Luckily, they charged past. I turned to explore the cave and found a box. It was locked. I spotted a key hanging from a nearby tree. Using the key, the box flung open and there was a beautiful wolf pendent inside. I strapped it around my neck and fled home. As I lay in my bed I suddenly felt a sharp pain like 1000 knives tearing at my flesh. There before me stood a WOLF!! It leaped out of my window, but it was too late I realized I had been bitten.

After he had spent all morning there he then went back to his house and nobody else knew about what he saw.

In a village, hid behind a colossal hill, the children had broken up for half term. Most families were poor, so the children didn’t have much to play with. All the kids were grumpy and as bored as a cat without it’s string. Towering over the village was a huge hill blocking their view. Hills are pointless: all they do is block your view and create ice, cold shadows.[Although I do like rolling down them!] Timmy and Julie asked their parents what to do. “How about you guys go exploring” suggested their dad. The kids nodded. They set off over the hill. They noticed a purple lake and some odd man shaped pylons. As they drew closer they got an eerie piercing  feeling. They screamed helplessly, but nothing could be done. They turned fully to metal and still remain there today. It was the curse of LAKE SILVERTON!!!



once there was a giant,a metal giant called fredric and fredric was a very lonley giant. one day fredric found a forest with sum foxes and they looked very eupheoric so he explained what happened ‘i can only go so far and I’m very lonely .’ So they decided to help him get to the human world, and so they were stroling through the woods and they saw a pack of killer rabitsso the foxes growled and it warned the rabbits to go away but they didn’t so the elderly wolf atacked and killed them all but he was seveirly ingered and died so that left nine so they kept on walking until another wolf fell, the giant looked down and said thanks guys and then climed down a tree,and found himself in the human world and said this is great so he ranchero the long gras and saw the most beautiful woman in his life and as soon as they made eye contact it was love at first sight.After that they got married and lived happy life                           THE END



Every day when I walk to work I walk past the telephone wires and it is just like any normal day.

Where I go to work and sit in my chair with coffee.  I   always buy coffee for everyone. Then we all work on the computers and the computer Wi-Fi works. Then we all go home. But when I was working last night the Wi-Fi flashed of and on.

This morning I was walking to work when I see the telephone wire I seen the weirdest thing in my life. It was a giant electric wire man. It is the electric giants popping up what will we do.  We   created a device that is called a d – link and we installed it in every house it was a brilliant   device. We all went back to work   the following day. Everybody’s   life was now   normal for   ever   now.

It’s   the end



The spider’s web still stood. Its masterful was still standing after so many years. The web was woven so that it looked like a long line of people connected by three single strands of thread. The thread is almost golden when you look up close, but the further away you get the more it looks white.  A river stands behind most of them. The murky water meanders as the river goes on. Sometimes, the river overflows and the bottom of the giant standstill web-people gets wet. Then, after time, it dries and becomes solid. If you go to the top of the people it is fading away but the bottom gets renewed each time the river overflows.The mountain looming in the distance is actually a volcano that has been extinct for a long, long time. It used to be called Mt. Everest.                The spider died so long ago now…

The ghostly men where all that was left. That was until the nuke exploded. Everyone died but the guardians of the earth, also known as the protectors. They were the only things left. They have a hide out that they always run from because the angles and demons always battle there every 4 days. They always unfortunately get caught in battles by getting a sword through there chest that’s why they have wholes through there body.

Today I saw the weirdest thing in the world I saw telephone wire powered giants. So yesterday the power went out and never came on engineers and others who know a lot about electricity they all went and followed telephone wire trailing’s where the giants have sucked out the electricity and just left them. But suddenly a telephone wire pole fell and started rolling down a hill to where they were and nearly turned them into mincemeat. But it still caught one of the humans and they were stuck in between a tree but they escaped and caught up with the team then they saw the weird giants that sucked up the electricity it was so dangerous for them so they ran strait back to there home town with the giants following them that was the worst idea they ever made but the saviour of the city destroyed them.



The Power out

One day there was a power out. We went to our nanas house she told me about the power people. The power people were telephone connecters that search across the world for that special thing but with every good story there is a bad guy. It was called the storm the storm cut all the power from a village and kept it for him. So the people set a plan to destroy the storm but wasn’t a good idea the storm was a man but he could control all the storms. But one day they defeated him they took his power sores from his chest and now he is a slave after spending 25 years in prison.



one day there were some pylons shaped as people. All the pylons came alive and they decided to go for a walk through the countryside. The people who lived in the countryside were not happy. The pylons went to the city. The people of the city where terrified. back in the countryside the people where building a trap so when the pylons got back they would get stuck.The trap was a big pit with a false floor. When the pylons got back they fell in the pit and from now on electric wires stayed under ground. The people from the countryside were very happy and they didn’t have to look at the messy people pylons ever again.

There was once a gate that had never been opened. The gate had just mysteriously appeared there one night. It is said, that on the other side of the immense wooden gate there are some keys. These keys open the haunted house on the other side of the forest. Legend tells of treasures being hidden inside. No one has seen the other side… until now! Ten year old Lizzy was wandering home from school when the grand  gate caught her attention. She stood and admired it. Suddenly a loud creaking noise came from the gate… was it opening for the first time?

As Joe walked along the side of the hill,breathing deeply, he could make out strange shapes throughout the dark,quiet and misty area of Carlterfields Bay. He walked cautiously along the shore, making sure he didn’t slip on any pesky, slippery rocks. He could still see the misty shapes of what seemed like huge, massive people. Was it just him hallucinating, or were they moving… Joe was 11, so he thought he was going mad, but a little bit of him was convinced this was real. He had to get home, and fast. He knew it was dangerous to be out after 8 o’clock. He turned back to go home. Suddenly, he was blocked by enormous, iron cables. He looked up to see two large, yellow eyes staring back at him. He screamed, and ran. He ran all the way back home and told her what happened. What a mistake…

The Cotton People

Once there was a family of 4. They went on a walk to over Flowing River. The reason why it is called Over Flowing River is it keeps on over flowing and it is a river. Archeologists believe it has cotton on one side to another side. But when the family went they saw cotton people as tall as giants on one side to another, so they went to find researchers to find what had happened. 1 week later they went to see what the researchers had done. Apparently in the olden days they started to make cotton people right where the river is now and because the river has stopped over flowing it has been getting shallow, shallow because it hasn’t rained very much so less water and the cotton people are coming up as the water goes down.

He stood there waiting, he had dreamed of the day to be able go across the river. Anything would be better than his tiny, dull village the same routine every day. The only problem was he was the only elf who wanted it. He had explained to his uninterested mother and equally as bored father. The dinky, elfin elf slouched on the village farm. He cried out to the equally as tiny, miniature villagers “Why won’t any of you help?” Just then he heard a rock move.“I can help you,” echoed a booming voice. The elf’s body froze. He saw how the rock became a mammoth giant. Elf’s voice had miraculously disappeared. All of the other rocks became giants and held hands. They formed a bridge for Elf. Elf went over the bridge and left. The Rock Giants had to wait till next time before they could help again.

‘Pylon People’
They cautiously hiked up the side of the vast mountain. They were surveying the colossal, immense iron pylons that stood high, carrying electricity which would be transported to their isolated, impoverished village that had never experienced electricity before.
Their village lay in the mountains of Pitlochry in Scotland and was extremely peaceful, although sometimes it was too peaceful. Having the electricity would bring light and power to their village.
They started descending down towards the beautiful iron statues which lay in front of them. On their way down they had to avoid brambles and nettles that stood in their way and even an aggressive bull that ambled towards them.
It was a distressing journey but was worth it as they approached the pylons. They used their engineering skills to allow the flow of electricity to their village. The day’s work was worth it as it gave light to their village.

Pylon People
“Hi I am a pylon ,”said the first pylon.
“I am too,” said another.
“lets do it for a day,” said both.
“we have done enough electricity charging,” said both of them.
Next ,they saw a shop and powered it up and went back to there spot.
Finally, they finished it.
the end.

The pylons are very still, at least thats what we thought. The pylons were awoken as the ground shook……Snap Snap Snap went the wires as they stretched. They grew legs, they grew arms and suddenly turned into giants. They went on an adventure into a village called Silverdale. The pylons met some children called Tom and Amy, “Where have you come from?” Tom asked. The pylons led them to Silverdale mountain. They didn’t realise at the time but Tom and Amy were being watched by a beady eye. Boooooom!!! They turned into pylons and were never seen again. Who did this to them ?? Would they ever be normal again ?? The mystery of the beady eye.

The giants arms were aching. They had been holding wires up for decades. They were the powerful wire giants!The giants travel around the world. They were in valley surrounded by deep water! Luckily for the giants they had all made it across the river the first time. All of the giants began to go to sleep.

In the morning they woke up. But to their dismay the water had rose! The giants could not get back across the water! They all really wanted to get across the water. As time went by they still could not get back.

After five long years the water became low enough for the wire giants to cross. But when the people saw them they screamed and ran! The giants went back to the water surrounded valley.
