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?)

Amelia:

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!

Hannah:

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 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!
Jessica Age: 12.

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.

 

LUNA… LUNA… ARE YOU… OK!

 

JAZ JAZ IS… THAT YOU…

 

BABY I’M COMING FOR YA!

 

Here goes nothing.

 

Wooshhhhhhh woooooshhhhhh cccccquc!

 

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

I screamed, no mum stay with me, ‘’Mark listen to me, take this out of my hand’’ She could barely move, or reach out to clear the tear of my cheek. ‘’Mark I’m so sorry dear I’ll have to go soon but remember this I love you and on your 18th birthday I shall come back for you be good and make some new friends.’’ Ok I promise mum.’’ She fell I gave a yelp ‘NNOO.’’ Dad scooped me out of the room so I didn’t have to see my mother lie there’ DEAD!

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…

We were moving into a new house and we went for a viewing the outside looked beautiful and the inside as well but I don’t think I saw the true colours when we were looking…So we had our decision on whether we were moving so we did. I put my dirty close on to get the walls stripped to put the new wallpaper on and move the table in. I started with the wall it took me 2 hours to fill the whole room after all the hard work I went down stars to have a cup of coffee that’s when I heard the bang I rushed up to the room that I had just decorated there was a hole write through it looked like a cave for a minute suddenly a hand stretched out to grab me I freaked out shouted ran and that was the end of me.

We are moving me and my sister. We went in to a bedroom there is a massive hole I stuck my hand in the hole to see what had happened to the wall. It was a dirty place to live in. It sucked me through I let out a squeak. It is a house with no rent. It is on a field with mud. We have to make it like a real world to live like normal people we found out it was a haunted house as I was down in the dump were it led you there was 37 other people there with sleeping bags   and pillows like me and Denny my sister. As I was walking down the dumps there were dogs that trapped you in the cage. There were dead bodies every were I got my leg eaten I found out Denny dead on the floor.

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.

As the girl stands above the sea the frothy waves splash, she wonders what it would be like being amongst the fish and the seaweed. 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…

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.

A ten-year-old girl was having an evening stroll down the grassy bank of lake Windermere when she saw an eerie glow in the depths of the lake about three metres away.

So she slowly waded in (only because she was inquisitive) then the water got too deep and the ground beneath her vanished. The water was freezing but she gathered herself together and dived down into the icy depths. Suddenly everything was black but then she caught sight of the light and swam towards it.

Here is a short story about how I discovered a talking fish. I was swimming through the sapphire sea with a lamp. There were amazing bizarre creatures swimming around me. Suddenly! I saw a cave. 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. The creature said “hello nice to meet you”. I replied “thank you, nice to meet you too”.

Hanna went to sleep, she was very comfy and cozy that night, she woke up in a wonderful mood only to find that she wasn’t in her bed…she was on a sea bed!! She went to have a look around and noticed that she could speak and breathe under water. Then this fish came and started speaking to her. The fish said something about his friend Casper being stuck underneath a rock. Hanna said she would like to help. The two new friends swam to the little fish, luckily Hanna was a human so she was able to lift the rock. Now it was nighttime in the sea world and when Hanna woke up in the morning she was back in her own bed and it turned out it was all just a dream.

In the ocean a girl called Nancy had been made to walk the plank by Mully the pirate. She sunk to the bottom and saw a dark cave. Nancy swam into it and saw it was full of shiny jewels. On her way she saw the skeletons of the others who had walked the plank before but had not made it out alive.

She picked up a handful of glittering rubies and put them in the bag that the pirates had given her. Nancy turned to swim out of the cave but just then she felt a bony hand touching her bag. She slowly turned around and saw a SKELETON rip open her bag and the rubies scattered on the rocks.

Nancy managed to grab one ruby without the skeleton noticing and swam to the surface.

As she came up for air the pirates were waiting for their treasure.

My name is Sofia,

and I am on search for treasure, you may ask how I can breathe under water as I am human, but I stole some gills off a fish and now I can breathe under water and search what I am looking for. a wise old fisherman once told me if I ever get the chance of going to the mysterious land of arkor to look out for the 3 fragments of the core of aslon beneath this will be treasure and lots of it, but!!! there will be one problem auto pilot fish guard this area and the master Lucas is controlling them the only way to stop them is to use the light of the special admanita lantern I hold that was passed down from my Grandpa.

wish me luck guys I am feeling brave and hoping my gills will stay in place until I get to the mysterious land of arkor.

A girl was walking on the shore of the beach. It was night time and she had a lamp her Mum said it was waterproof. She was walking and a gust of wind threw her into the sea. It was cold and very ruff all of a sudden. When the sea calmed down she went for a swim in the middle of the night. It is a strange time to swim but she did it anyway. Then she realized she could breath under water. She saw a lovely sight she saw a clown fish and named him Nemo and went back to her parent’s for a lovely bath.

The Whale and Bella.
As the girl swam deep in the ocean looking for the exit out of the blue gloomy sea, she heard a noise, a noise of a whale, like an Orca.  

The Orca appeared and said “hi little one, what are you doing down here in the blue gloomy sea,”.  

The girl was amazed when she heard the Orca talk and she explained everything to the whale.  

“Well you see I was on the beach with my parents, and a big wave pulled me into the sea, and here I am,”.  

The girl started to cry, then the whale decided to help the girl, and they became friends.  

“My name is Bella,” whimpered the girl whilst she cleared her eyes.

“My name is just Whale,” said the Orca with depression.

The Orca hated his name he wanted something fancy, but Bella and Whale couldn’t decide quick enough, because…

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.

One minute I was holding the old lantern next the monster wave pulled me under. I closed my eyes waiting for something to happen but nothing did. I was still conscious after about 5 minutes of sinking into the dark depths of the sea.

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 

Now me and the boy swim round every corner of the sea. We are the children of the sea.

The girl swims under water, as the lantern shines the way like a dangler fish. She swims calm and peacefully without bothering the fish, exploring and looking for treasure. Having no sharks chasing her she’s safe from being devoured. Or is she?

She jumped into the sea, at the same time she caught the dancing light but in fury the light trapped both of them under water for eternity. Until a boy named George, saw her and rescued her from the spell. Both of them suddenly fell in love and they travelled the world.

Early one morning, Jeff who was aged 10 had a fall out with his parents because they would not let him watch one of his favourite TV programs. So then he decided to go and have a walk in the fields right next to their house. Later on, Jeff stumbled upon a huge pilons in the shape of people going across the field and over the lake and into the distance. Jeff didn’t know what to do whether to go back and tell his parents or just keep it a secret. He thought for a while but then he finally decided that he would keep it a secret so nobody would find out about the pilons except himself. 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!!!

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.

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…

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kizzie 10

On Tuesday 9th December an old man who was 50 was walking by a clock, when he heard a woman’s voice shouting for assistance, she sounded very frightened. The old man thinks the voice is coming from behind the clock. He calls the police before he goes to investigate for himself

Alfie 10

“RUN” screamed Jack anxiously, as the big, old, decrepit clock plummeted down, like a space ship coming into orbit. Lilly jumped over the old rusty benches.
“It’s coming “Lilly yelled, terrified. The ground behind them cracked in half. The clock got closer and closer. BANG! The clock reached the ground Jack and Lilly stopped in shock. It had shattered into millions of pieces. The hands soared across the bright blue sky. They thought it was all over. But they had no idea what was waiting for them in all the rubble…

James 11

I woke up and everything had stopped. A clock stood tall and strong and that had stopped too. Suddenly, the ground began to evaporate. Then a zombie shot out of the ground and then another and another. The dark, gloomy city of Pennsylvania was covered in zombies. Suddenly, I heard a sound like a woman screaming. I realized it was my girlfriend. I sprinted to my house and grabbed my AK47 and shot down hundreds of zombies. Meanwhile my girlfriend was turned into a zombie. I was surrounded” what will I do?” I thought. I felt a zombie’s disgusting mouth on my arm. I thought
” WILL I SURVIVE!?!”

Ethan 11

Crash!
Thunder roared! Rain smashed against the window violently! I sat there, freezing, watching TV. Suddenly, the TV went static, then, surprisingly, screen shook. “M-mum!” I yelled, something’s wrong with the TV!” I started to shiver. The windows rattled. The ground started to shake! I gripped the sofa in fright. What was going on? Bravely, I stood up, and crept towards the window (inside, however, I felt like a cat been chased by a dog.) Nervously, I looked out the window. The clock tower was glowing! Then, unexpectedly, lightning fired out from it! But it didn’t fire upwards. It fired at me …

“AHH!!” I shrieked. I was on the floor, and I seemed to be smoking! My breath went heavy, and my ears rung .I was in … a graveyard … Terrified, I stood up, and looked around. One of the coffins had its lid off. The body was gone…

Jack 10

I looked up at the gloomy, decrepit clock. It had stopped. It wasn’t the only thing. I froze. Next, the floor beneath my aching feet began to evaporate. Suddenly, I fell deeper than you ever could imagine.

Thoughts were racing through my mind as my gooey blood turned cold. My breath got heavier also my heart was panting like a wolf.

Suddenly I hit a soft, wet surface. I breathed fresh air I could also feel wet, fresh grass. I told myself what just happened? I opened my stiff eyes. From a distance I saw an old figure waddling towards me.

Emily 14

The constant ticking had stopped. As I looked up at the clock, I realized that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped.
The birds, frozen, like a skyline painting.
The wind, once whipping and howling, now fell silent.
“What the…” I murmured. I turned around on the spot like a spinning top. It was deathly quiet, the calm before the storm.

And then I was falling.

The ground surrounding me, previously solid and strong, crumbled. I yelled, a sound that I knew would never reach anyone’s ears.
“Oof!” I hit something solid, my breath knocked out of my lungs. I looked around.
There was no doubt about it. I was back in Hell, more specifically, Lucifer’s Cage.

My name is Allie Donegen.
And I am a demon.

Maisie 10

I walked bravely onto the battlefield (inside however I was nervous). I readied my sword up into the air and as soon as I slammed it down onto my opponent, I froze. I looked at the rusty, old clock. It had stopped.

Alistair 10

A dark decrepit figure ventured out of nowhere. Suddenly, a clock appeared. I went up the ancient staircase. I froze.
“WWW what is this place?” I bellowed. The shadow of a devious man emerged from the clock door. I walked into the prehistoric ruins. Inside was a shimmering gem. I was blinded by the beauty as I almost lay my hands upon it. At that moment, a voice whispered in my ear. “You shall not touch that gem or face obliteration!”

Tyler 11

I was slowly walking down the busy street, but suddenly everything went dark, everything froze. Swiftly, I turned round staring in the face of the clock tower. At this point I realised I wasn’t the only thing that froze. Distant noises began. They got louder and louder. There was a dark shadow in the reflection of the bright window.
“H-hello, is anyone there?” I whispered frantically.
Scared and shocked, cold and icy, I slowly turned around. No one was there. I was left staring at the dark misty sky. When suddenly I felt a hand, which was cold, rest on my shoulder…

Alex 10

As soon as Alfie entered his house he knew that something was wrong. He couldn’t find his younger brother; usually he was playing on his Xbox. Today, he wasn’t anywhere to be seen. The truth was more chilling than anyone knew. Alfie called to his mum and asked where his brother was. “Your brother? You don’t have a brother”. Alfie was puzzled, he had a brother. Then it struck him, time had gone backwards. He saw his clock and touched it… People stopped talking and moving. The world stopped spinning on its axis. The stars stopped shining and the mice stopped squeaking…

Natasha 10

“We have to get there in time.” shouted Rosie as loud as she could.
I sprinted to St George’s station I looked at the time it had stopped.
“OH NO” wailed Rosie.
“Why did it have to STOP” screamed Rosie angrily.
Rosieran and ran up and down streets until she was out of breath. Outside she felt thrilled. (Inside however, she felt angry.)
“BANG”
“W-w-w was that? Who is there?”
She took 2 steps forward. A voice whispered.
“Don’t come forward or you will get badly hurt.
“Why will I” muttered Rosie.
“You just listen to me”
“NO” shouted Rosie in danger.
She took 5 steps backwards. The door slammed closed behind me…

Nasrin 11

“Mum what is the time? Mum what is the time? “I better see what is going on. Furious and apprehensive, peaceful and miserable, I went to my mum. But she was frozen. I went bravely to the door (inside however I felt very worried). I looked from the window, but she wasn’t the only person that was frozen. The whole world was. I wish I knew what to do?
“I can see you” whispered a voice “I know what you can do to stop the world. You need to get a book and read it to the magic clock before the moon comes…

Lauren 11

Thrilled and excited, nervous and scared, he walked towards the old, decrepit clock. He thought he was brave (inside however, he felt like a chicken). Slowly, he lifted his head. A shadowy figure danced through the mist. CREAK! A door opened. A cadaverous, gloomy figure freakishly hobbled through the haggard door out into the dark night. Jack, who is quite brave, stared at the clock above the door. Some people walked by; others started to stare to. BANG! “What’s happened!” screamed Jack in anguish. He started to panic.
It stopped…

David 10

Hesitantly, I grabbed my phone to check the time. I called my friend. “where were you last night”, I asked Robert.
He replied,”I was at pizza hot”. Oh its 12 o clock. Quickly, I ran outside. Why is it 3 o’clock its 12 I’m sure? Why has everyone stopped? Hello I said they look like zombies, again I said Hello. Perspiring and nervous, anxious and worried I stepped inside I felt brave (however inside I was Terrified

Bored, warm and lonely, I walked through the big and full busy town. And I saw this thing from far away. I went closer and closer…
It was starting to get dark. I froze. That was the best thing I had ever seen. A clock that glows and sparkles in at night, it was changing colours.
“Wow”, I said happily to myself. I took some lovely pictures. Then I went home.
Later on, I looked through my window and saw that something was going on. As quick as a flash I sprinted to the clock and I saw that the colours had stopped working. Until, the next night I went to the clock and it still wasn’t working. Like someone was inside it…

Patrick 11

‘chhhh’ ‘chhhh’

I gazed up at the old, ancient clock. Suddenly, the clock rumbled, as it did it began to grow, I was trembling in terror! I ran away in fear as the clock grew bigger and transformed into the portal! Frozen and shocked, gob smacked and horror struck, I began to sprint. Running bravely to show that I was not scared (inside however, I was petrified).I fell. My knees buckled. I was stuck. My grip began to weaken and I began to slide along the floor. Shocked, I franticly lashed out to grab a rock. It was no use…

”AAHHH”, screamed a civilian as they were sucked up into the portal. Then I was sucked up as well. I was in another Dimension…

Bailey 10

Suddenly, I woke up. I looked up at the decrepit, cadaverous clock. It gloomed with fright, everyone froze. For a minute I thought it was a dream. Then I realised it wasn’t. Bravely, I walked outside to the cadaverous clock. I froze. It froze. I was petrified…..

“Is there anyone there?” I whimpered. I shook with fear. Suddenly the hand of the clock turned into a blue portal. A demented figure appeared out of the decrepit portal. It had eight eyes just like a spider. It had green slime all over it. It jumped off the cadaverous clock. The ground danced. It mumbled “Battle me or I will destroy your world!” He walked towards me. I answered back “I WILL BATTLE YOU!” I yelled with anger…

Aimee Macia opened the chest that once belonged to her Great Grandmother. She turned the mysterious handle that was on the side of the box, and a tune suddenly started up. Moments later, everything was deadly silent, as if time itself had stopped. The wind outside had stopped blowing the old tree, and when Aimee looked outside, the Church Hall Clock had completely stopped! Which only meant, Aimee’s Grandmother’s chest had a power to stop time itself…

Haroon 10

“Mom I am going to be late where my tie is. I shouted.
” It’s on the desk. “Yelled his mom.
Steve stormed out of the door. He went past the old, decrepit clock, which was very well known, it had been there for ages! After a while, I walked right across the clock (inside however I was petrified) then as quick as a flash it scooped me up! It felt like I was travelling through space. I landed with a thud! Everything was cold a blanket of darkness surrounded me. A shiver rattled down my spine. Suddenly, ghostly figure drifted towards me their arms outstretched. I had joint the afterword…

Slowly, Alfie Jennies woke up from his lovely sleep at 3 in the morning. ”SHHH, can you here that? ‘Whispered Alfie to his brother Jack.
”What is it’ Jack groaned.
Scared and worried, frightened and shocked, Alfie could here banging and crashing. His hand tensed up; he opened the curtains and gazed out of the window. Alfie went outside. Quickly, he ventured outside into the thick, dense fog. He looked up nervously at the clock. He immediately knew were to go. Quietly, he walked in the abandoned, giant clock. He knew what was going on. Demons were messing about. They saw him. Alfie froze. The Demons started to chase him, sadly Alfie got eaten…

Courtney 10

I was freezing cold as o stared at the old decrepit clock. I saw a shadow rush by near the clock. Bravely, I walked towards the ancient crumbling clock (inside however, I was terrified!)
Terrified, I walked two steps closer as I was inches away from the creepy clock.

Suddenly, the clock started to shake, I ran away from the clock as fast as I could! The clock began to walk towards me, I was petrified…
Terrified and shocked I sprinted as far away from the clock as I could get. The clock was as grey as the sky on a cold rainy morning.

“Stop running” whispered a voice from behind me, I froze and so did everyone else for a minute or 2

Rebecca 11

BANG!
Startled, Peter jumped up. Shaking with fear, he gazed over the rusty, dirty, haggard railing. Everything had stopped…

Shocked and terrified, confused and baffled, he sluggishly turned around to become face to face with an ancient clock. Bravely, Peter edged forwards towards the clock (inside however his heart was sinking). Peter, who was a bit of a wuss, reached out to touch the decrepit clock but jumped back.

“ARR!” Peter yelled in anguish. He saw me! As smoke danced in the air, I pulled my repulsive mask over me pale white face and ran…

Billy 11

Cold and lonely, heartbroken and miserable, I cautiously trembled through the bare, decrepit street. Then I stopped…
Glaring into the foggy distance, I quickly spotted an old cadaverous building. I was like a moth looking at a bulb. I walked towards it bravely (inside however, I was petrified). Nervously, I swiftly glided towards to rusty, sickening gate. I yanked at the greasy bars until it creaked open. It was pitch black, and felt as if I’d closed my eyes. I heard an eerie ghost like noise which was extremely creepy, and made me jump out of my blizzard like skin. I galloped towards the unpleasant door as a chill ran down my spine. Then I saw it…

Ali 11

David walked mostly to a clock. He kicked the door open.”Stop hiding!”Shouted, David, Give her back. No I won’t mumbled a thick voice. That is coming from the shadows. The door slammed shut. The figure appeared. “Oh no”, whispered David, aaaahhh now David is in …

Natalie 10
Tick-tock goes the clock… usually. I saw the clock, it was exactly six, but it didn’t chime. Time had stopped, actually everything but me, had stopped. I was scared something strange had happened. DDUUNN DDUUNN DDEERR!!!!!!!!! I saw something moving and ran over to it. It was Superman! “What’s going on?” I asked. “Hi, I’m Superman. The super heroes are looking for helpers. We’ve stopped time and only super heroes are still able to move.” replied Superman. He told me to grab his hand; he flew to the super heroes’ main base. They gave me an outfit. Trained me to fly; shoot; defend and help people. I got to decide my own power; I chose to breathe under water. They called me ‘Water Woman’. I liked the name and was extremely proud of it. I saved thousands of people’s lives and became famous. My life was never the same again

One day when I was in Blackpool I looked up at the clock and it stopped I looked around all the people were stood still .I looked at the sea and that stopped I found my mum and she was stood still not blinking I tried to wake her up but she wouldn’t. I was the only person that wasn’t stood still nothing started ever again.

Nadine Robberts 11

It was a normal Saturday morning in Miami, the sky was blue but the sea was rough.
Suddenly the sea was flat, not moving a bit. I looked up at the clock and realized that it
wasn’t the only thing that stopped! I was in my short shorts and singlet walking down to the beach with my surf board as soon as I got in the water was when I realized that the sea had froze and everyone around me did too I was the only thing that could move! My board was
stuck on the water so I got off it and walked to shore even though I fell like 1,000 times because
it got turned into ice. I ran home to see my mum frozen eating breakfast but then I heard someone screaming “HELP!” I ran outside to see my 2 year old brother Jackson…

Jenna Allanson 9

The clock
The clock had stopped, all the village had melted because it was night so there were no LIGHT. But there was one baby animal that was still standing it was called Annabelle. And he said “aaaahhhhh, were is everybody “she cried even here mum melted but then Annabelle realized that it was only her village. But then she looked at her watch and it never stopped. And then she said to herself “why don’t I just put a watch on everybody and then she did, and everything was back to normal.

James Allanson 7

“were is your mum she’s stopped” Bobby said “let’s go to school and see if the pupil’s have stopped.”
that’s strange they can move and then every thing was back to normal.

Orin Quigley and Jackson Carr 11 & 12

When I woke up I heard a BANG! So I went downstairs and opened the door to find people were shouting, ‘The clock has stopped!’
“What are you talking about?”
“It is not WORKING!”
I looked up at the clock and they were right, it wasn’t working. And the cars weren’t moving. The shops were shut.
I had no idea what this was going to happen to sleepy little Bedlington.
Let’s solve this mystery guys! Get all your friends to solve this with me, let’s do this thing! Meet me at my house straightaway, get your gear now!!!

Kieran Cave and Tyler Williamson 12 & 11

The clock wasn’t the only that wasn’t working. Cars had stopped, and my lights were turning on and off. I tried to stop it but it would not work.
I got an electrician but he didn’t know how to fix this kind of thing.
I got ready and then suddenly all my lights just turned off with nobody else in the house! I heard a voice laughing, “Mwahahaha!”
I looked around with my flashlight but there were only two little mice. But who had laughed? Was I losing my marbles?
I went downstairs and there was food on the floor, my money gone and my back door was glowing with hand prints. Whoever had been in my house had stolen the key for my 18 carat gold clock.
I went outside and saw the man. He wouldn’t get away from me! I got him and the police took him away!

Athena 7

I stared up at the clock. It had just hit 12:00.I waited for everyone to come rushing in a stampede. There was no sound. I looked at the clock once more. I wondered why the hands were spinning in every direction like a compass. I strolled back home and turned on the TV. The screen stayed blank. A tear rolled down my check. I looked around. Despite nobody being around at the bus stop I had to walk bye myself. Dark clouds gathered around me. Rain poured down from the sky. I look down in disappointment. I really wanted to ask someone what was going on. Too bad I couldn’t find anyone to help me.

Manjo 8

It started at first when not just the world stopped spinning, the clocks stopped and everyone froze. Then birds stopped chirping in the trees, swings stopped swinging and then planes stopped flying in the sky. I was the only one alive in the world. When I walked down the streets, I felt like my ears were blocked and my breathing stopped. It started to get dark and cloudy. I ran home as quickly as I could to find out the answer, the answer to why this was happening. I tried to do some browsing on the computer but I could not find anything to do with this. I lost power then the computer turned off. I stared at the black screen wondering what was going to happen next.

Max 7

The whole world suddenly stopped. All around me were stiff people even the big Ben had stopped ticking. I went further down the street still no answers it was a nightmare. The worse bit was it was lunch and I was starving. I started to think about it. Had I done something wrong to cause this disaster? ‘I have to find out’ I said out loud even though nobody could hear me.

Marco 7

The Big Ben struck 12:00.Everthing was silent. Even the birds weren’t chirping; my legs were shacking. There was nobody moving-they were as stiff as a stone. A tear dripped as slow as a snail down my cheek. I felt like I was on a deserted Island nothing was around. The only person I could rely on was me.

Jamie Sampson and Callum Devlin 111

It was a day like no other.
All of a sudden, everything had stopped after the clock broke.
Everyone was outside in confusion when a gremlin dropped out of the sky from the alien ship swooped down to come and get it.
It seemed like there was a link between the standstill and the aliens’ arrival. For some reason, we were the only people that weren’t affected.
The space craft was abducting the frozen citizens.
We tried to hide in a Subway filled with sandwiches and frozen statues of gremlins. We tried to run and run with a lot of sandwiches but the space ship chased us until we fell. A sandwich dropped on to the floor and the gremlins pounced.
We managed to escape as we watched the sandwich get abducted by the gremlin aliens.

My mum shouted me” Rebecca come and eat your

Aimee Cant 8

Every day I wake up to that old big clock, one day I realised the clock had stopped for some reason. I climbed up the clock; I gave the clock a nudge. But then I lost my balance. I grab the rail before I fell. Suddenly, the clock begins to chime really loud. People look up. That’s when they realise I’m in danger. I see the fire engine coming and hold on. A scream escapes me as one of my hands loses its grip…It has been 10 minutes since I fell. The door to the old clock opened and the firemen come through. They help me up and bring me down the stairs. When I get down I see my mum run up to me. She hugs me and asks me if I’m okay the clock saved me I said to my mum, I wake realising I was dreaming…

Leo Brady 12

One day I was walking down town in London, but something weird was happening, no one was on the streets and every car was stopped with no one in them. Something wasn’t right, I looked up at the big Ben and it was stopped, it wasn’t ticking. “What is going on?” I shouted “is anyone out there” no reply. I ran home to see if my family was ok, but when I got home there was no sign of them. there lunch was still on the table untouched. I didn’t know whether to sad or confused “why, where is everyone” talking to myself again. Wait what if it’s to do with the big Ben, why was it stopped I have to go and check it out. by the time I got there, still nobody in sight. I climbed up the big Ben and nothing was wrong with it?

Tiana 13

Waltzing away under the moonlit sky. I was intrigued by the soft bitterness of the wind that fell upon my cheeks as I danced. The sweet sound of the music, a lovely bellbird whispering into my ears.
Glancing up and down now and again to look among the daisies and buttercups surrounding me in the meadow. The towering clock, standing as my mother’s watchful eye as to when I will make it back home a lone thistle caught my eye waiting to be observed.
Ouch! I guess touching the thistle wasn’t my greatest idea in the world. Bright red, oozing blood swims out like a rushing river and dropped onto a flaky skeleton leaf.
I fell to the ground. My head like a drum for someone to pound on. The birds above frozen in time. I looked up at the clock and realised it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped!!

Dahrien Barnett 12

It was a normal day for agent Burkes. As he was driving to work. As he does every day he passed the clock tower but something strange was going on. He looked up at the clock and realized that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped everything had stopped. Everything was stuck in place all the cars people everything. It seemed like an EMP hit and seemed to disable everyone so he rushed to the main FBI building. as he rushed in everyone seemed to be struggling just to move around. It seemed like the blast only managed to get halfway through the bunker walls. He rushed past everyone to the commander’s office he slid down behind the desk because there was a man with some sort of energy pistol and had the commander held up. The only place that those guns were made in was Australia then the man spoke.

Tyla Stewart 11

I need to go to the mall and buy some Christmas presents for the kids. So I drove my car to the Paris Mall and there was a lot of good buys. I spent over 10 grand. But the best thing was I have finished my Christmas shopping.

I walked out of the mall with a dozen bags. I was struggling to carry all of them to my car. I asked a guy to help me and I said he will get 10.00 so he did. The car was parked in front of a huge clock tower. I looked up at the clock and realised it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped. My car had stopped working to!!!

I didn’t have my phone on me so I had to walk back to the mall and asked to borrow a phone but everyone was ignoring me. I felt invisible.

Breannah 13

I looked up at the clock and I realized that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped! People, cars, bus everything but me was frozen. Time had stopped the world was frozen; but why wasn’t I? I could do anything how cool was this! I went to the plaza and brought lots of things. After that I ate and the fancy place in town. 23 hours had been and I was getting kind of board; running through my head were all these questions like when was the world going to unfreeze is it ever going to unfreeze? I filmed heaps of frozen people cars, buses and the clock. On the park bench I made an amazing movie. Then from behind me I heard my mother’s voice. I showed her the movie and we took it to the news team who played it that night. Now I’m famous.

Robin 11

On this strange as night I was walking in to town to get food and going past the clock in town and the time on it said the time was 12.00 pm but then I looked at my phone the time on my phone said 7.00 pm.

When I went to get my food all of the people could not move at all there were people with food in there hands and mouth going to eat there tea it was not nice to see what people are having for tea I do not what to eat tea.

So then I went to the fish and chips shop to get so food for tea so I got $20 out for tea then I went home to eat tea then I stayed at home and did not go back to town for a week all of the people are there.

Taylor 12

I looked up at the clock and realized that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped. Everything else had also stopped it was as if the whole world had just froze and only I was moving who knew what had happened…

Then I raced up to the top of the clock and there was a person that was getting ready to ring the bell but he had frozen to. I didn’t know what to do every thing and one had frozen even the wind had stopped.

It got darker and darker by the minute. Then it went pitch black and the clods got lower the bang everything disappeared including me and a whole new world begun…

Tyrone Adam Ratima 11

A long time ago I was in the town square it was an autumn breeze it had been going on for almost 2 weeks now. I look up the clock and realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped the wind had stopped everything but me has stopped it was odd because it looked like the entire world has stopped but me I don’t know what to do I can’t call the police because I will try and call but no one will answer I wonder has this happened to anyone else I look around town but everything has disappeared but the jeweller so it can’t be a mass criminal I hear a soft spoken voice oh I wish someone was here the soft spoken voice I look around the corner and I see a young man around my age hi my name is James …

Gigi 12

A startled woke me up in the middle of night. A glimpse of light illumining through my casement. It was a weird feeling, minutes after not noticing, I fell back asleep. The next morning my alarm clock went firing, I reached out underneath my blanket, to turn it off. I sat up and gave a big yawn. Glancing at the time I quickly dashed to the bathroom to prepare myself. Moments later I was out the door before anyone was awake.

I gazed up at the clock tower and realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped. My phone froze, Taxi’s, Buses, and Cars immobilised, and the most freakish thing was, was that no one was around.

Karlsyn George 10

It is now the 10th November 1999, it is quiet, there is no-one around. I go outside and see a big blue circle thing floating. I’m going closer. I see brawny alien looking things. I’ve got to find out what’s happening because it feels like time has just frozen. I’m too afraid to go out because the brawny alien things have big machine guns. I’m scared, I need to get them distracted so I grab a rock and throw it, they’re getting distracted. I run straight to the clock and I’ve realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped! I run to my place and see that everything is broken and everyone has disappeared. I feel like I’m about to cry but I don’t because I see the brawny alien’s looking, so I try to control myself. I go home and try to sleep before I died all alone.

Struan Carlisle 11

Today is the 27th of July, 1959 and my family and I are going to the annual and most joyous festival. The new clock tower has just been completed and this year’s theme is just that. After replacing a very old dreary and decrepit one, this clock tower is being opened for the first time. We were just getting into the car for this historic day. I arrived with a spring in my step because I knew that this I will be assured a date for the dance, I had a special feeling in my stomach that that person will be the girl of my dreams, Rose McGregor. She is a real beauty with blonde hair and eyes like diamonds-they’re that stunning! She has a warm personality, who always helps people in need. I suddenly saw Rose and the opportunity was too good to be true.

Eleni Symeonides 10

As two friends strolled through lush meadows on a smooth path with sweet scented bunches of rainbow coloured flowers leading the way, they decided to rest on a nearby bench. A gust of mysterious wind blew through Anna’s long, silky, golden hair as she looked up at a tall tower, with a large clock sitting on the tower’s face. Expecting the hands of the clock’s hands to move, showing the time, nothing happened. As she slowly turned to tell her friend, Opal, she noticed that birds weren’t singing their calm tunes and small land animals, like rabbits were statues. Confused and scared, Anna stared at her friend. Why wasn’t there any movement at all? As Anna waved her hands frantically in front of Opal’s face, she suddenly leapt from the bench onto the path and started running towards the town, observing everything. Why wasn’t she frozen to?

Shania Boudville 11

Before people could even ask what the time was; I curiously looked up at the haunting, dull clock. How bizarre? No ticking and no chiming. Scratching my just wondering what was going on. A mysterious fellow comes strolling past strangely saying,” Beware! Beware! Be very aware that clock can evilly curse! “. That really gave me the shivers down my hunched spin. With my beating heart pumping heavily the rotten, chipped, wooden door slowly creaks open.
As the door opened a wrinkly peeled, bony hand reaches out. It signalled me, to come inside the gloomy clock tower. I followed this spooky figure up the rusty stairs. The door instantly slammed shut behind me. Sweat began to roll down my shaking head. I climbed up the steps even more. Just then the figure sharply turned around. ZAP! It revealed its intimidating face. My legs began to tremble. Collapsing down like an earthquake, my heart becomes cold as Ice…

Aleem Khan 11

I looked up at the clock and realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped the world had stopped spinning and I was the only one who didn’t turn into a statue. I saw pictures of the past coming into the present. I thought that something fishy was going on so I hurriedly thought of the different possibilities to stop this madness. I finally thought of something! A clock because it can go clockwise and anticlockwise so I went to the clock that I went earlier rewound the old, rusty hands right to what the time it was now-well not right now how the past is coming back to the time it all started.

Audrey Chhen 11

I look up at the clock and realise that it isn’t the only thing that was motionless. I do a turn to find that cars not moving and children trapped in the air from jumping. All is discreet and peaceful then ‘swish’ a black flying figure soars in front of me then disappears into thin air. Again it is unobtrusive so unobtrusive you could drop a pin and you could hear it. Suddenly ‘BANG’. Then a certain part of the sky turns a gloomy shade of mahogany…

Connah Dryden 11

I looked up at the clock and realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped. I looked around and everyone had stopped but me. I tried to think of what had happened to the people that had stopped during their motions. I walked around trying to see if anyone else could still move. But as usual I had no luck. A portal then opened and I wondered if I should pass through it as I really had nothing here except for the people standing. I didn’t pass though because I knew deep down that there was someone still here for me. Now I ’am left standing in a space of stopped clockwork and it feels like it’s happened before.

Nicholas Hunter 9

Ben was going about his day as he realised that the clock tower had stopped. He realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped. He saw his mum’s car coming towards Ben but they both stopped and they started to fade away. He walked to his friend’s house but the house was no longer there. As soon as soon as Nicole, his friend got there it was too late. Ben tried to get home but it was also too late. His home was gone and the world was going in reverse. Before he knew it dragons and dinosaurs were alive again and Ben found out that he was the only human alive.

Libby 7

One day there was a clock lying on the ground. A little elf lived in it he calls tom and had a sister poppy so that to clock time.They went into the Christmas tree and went home but the clock chimed 12 the end.

Sam 12

I looked up at the clock and realised it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped! I turned around to find my family motionless. Everything had stopped! What do I do now? I’m in a foreign country and I know where absolutely nothing is! I looked around. I simply waited. How long will this last? Suddenly everything started to move again, but very slowly. Eventually, everything was back to normal as quickly as it had started. “Are you okay?” Mum asked. I answered, “I have no idea.”

Erick 11

I looked up into the blue, cloudy, sunny sky then suddenly, when I looked up the clock stopped moving and I realised that it wasn’t the only thing that stopped; everyone stopped moving in a blink of an eye.
I realised that if everyone stopped I have more time to create my books until everyone and everything starts moving again in the same speed it used to be.
When everyone started moving again I was glad that everyone was back to normal and also bought the books that I made during the time they were stuck in a single spot.

May 11

I looked up at the clock, then looked around; it was like time had held its breath. Time may have stopped, but I could still think. The faces of people around me were as still as statues, and the strong wind became calm. The trees stopped swaying and the birds stopped singing. Balls were in mid air.

And most importantly, the clock stopped.

I stared, shocked, unable to move, paralysed. The expressions on people’s faces suggested that they weren’t worrying a bit. This was not normal. The feeling of panic swept over me as I wondered how to get out of this mess, to get the clock going again. But just as I was thinking that, I heard the familiar chime of the bell and everyone started moving again as if it was a perfectly normal experience.

Perfectly normal? Yeah, right.

Jasmine 12

I am going away in three days, away from all my friends. I am sad; I want the time to stop right now. At night, in my dream, a man with a black mask told me that I need to go to the magic clock to stop the time. I will do it, I decided, right after I heard that message in my dream.
Next, when I wake up, I pack my bag and start the most important trip in my life. I keep running, running for already two days. I must be fast enough to get there before I need to go 1000 miles away. I don’t care if I am hungry, I don’t care if I am tired. I just want to stay with my friends! Finally, I get there. I press the stop bottom down…the time stops, I don’t need to go! Everyone’s doing what they are doing like normal, but I will never get to the moment that I am going away! I am staying forever!

It was the first time I had felt fear in a long time.
Real fear.
It wasn’t just the clock that wasn’t moving.
It was everyone.
Not even the wind was blowing.
But that was when it happened.

My name is Terry Perry and I am 14 years old. It was only 2 years ago when it happened. When everything stopped. I still think of that day every moment, dreading it may happen again. I mostly keep it to myself, like it’s my closest secret. But I will be sharing it. With you.
It was a normal day; I was walking down to the plaza when the grand clock was in mid-chime when it stopped. When the whole world stopped. No-one moved. The dogs stopped barking. It was silent. I was scared. Really, really scared. I started to back away slowly, when everything started again.
A man walked up to me.
”Are you okay son? You look like you’ve seen a ghost?”
”You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.” I said.

Dash 12

Tick, tick, tick. I looked up at the clock and realised it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped! Everything stood still. Nothing moved, no noise, no nothing. Tick, tick, tick, the clocks had stopped but still there was the reverberating noise like there was still just one clock, there was clicking, ticking, whirring, shifting, spinning, dropping. Then it just stopped. In my last seconds of life I had seen Infinity. And then, it was over, as I let myself go. The time started running again. Tick, Tick, Tick, goes the clock of life. Tick, tick, tick.

Gus 12

It wasn’t just the clock that had stopped. It was the whole world in front of me. They were all, just, still.
This was scaring me; I was stuck in the freezing of time. Suddenly a pink fluffy unicorn dancing on rainbows flew out of the clock, just dodging the near impalement of the arms.

It said in a deep, wise voice.
“Why is ye present”
I managed to get out these exact words.
“I’m the doctor!!!!!”
The unicorn is getting obviously angry with the messing with time that I have been doing.
“Get outttt!”
And that’s all I remember.

Jack 11

The bizarre, solitary tower loomed over me as I cautiously sprinted around the huge, old oak tree.
Crack! The stick snapped under my brown tramping boots as I ran past the bush.
I wandered out from the back of the blackberry bush, the car had been stopped, I looked closer realizing it was smashed. “NOOOO!” I screamed at my worried looking brother, my Christmas present was destroyed.

An echoing chime shook through the town. I glanced up at the clock tower and the hands had stopped moving. Then I realised the hands weren’t the only things that had stopped moving. Everyone as far as I could see was frozen, not moving as if their feet were glued to the ground. How come I could walk? Everything was still, people on bikes and in cars was frozen. It was if the whole world had paused. The town became ghostly and no longer could I hear the sound of birds. Suddenly another chime rang from the tower. This time everyone unfroze like someone had just hit play. None of them seemed to notice what had just occurred.

Lauren 12

As I look up to see the time, I see it is the exact same time that it was when I looked up about 2 hours ago. “Someone needs to get the clock tower fixed,” I think.
But as I start to make my way to the bus stop, I realise that not only is the clock frozen, but everything else is to!
I am the only one in this whole city, maybe the whole world, who is still moving and is aware of what is happening.
“I bet that clock tower has something to do with it….oh help!”

Luca 12

I had just realised that the clock tower had finally stopped ticking after stopping and starting. It was only then that I looked down at my watch and quickly realised that wasn’t ticking either. I suddenly wrenched out my phone to see the time but again, there were no numbers anywhere. I looked around the street, others were panicking, realising that time itself had vanquished, disappeared, gone within the Earth. This meant that the world would change and have to figure out how to get to places on time. Then I looked at my phone again and it had the time. Which meant that there must have been a power cut, the network down and my watch must have run out of battery…?

Thomas 12

While I am calmly walking to school, I look up at Big Ben to check the time it suddenly freezes so I keep walking suddenly I realise that not only the clock is frozen everybody else is too! I’m not calm anymore. “This is crazy, what is happening? This must be a dream,” I say to myself. “But I know it isn’t.” All I see is the people paused looking terrified, crossing the streets, walking on the side walk, Maybe it’s just me thinking about this terrible thought or maybe it is what really is happening. I can walk but I can’t see anyone walking. Maybe I am the one who is paused and the paused people that I am looking at are actually looking at me. Life has its own wonders, doesn’t it? I keep walking and suddenly everything goes to its normal position again.

Harrison 12

I looked up at the clock and realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped! My heart skipped a beat as the massive meteor got closer and closer and closer.

It was like the start of the apocalypse. First the power went out, then the howls of the dogs began and then we lost connection to the outside world. We didn’t know what to expect. We were in a panic. My family and I rushed to central city only to find a huge ball of flaming rock above our heads. My dad held my mum and me as we screamed ourselves senseless. As the heat rose all I can remember is… “It has begun.”

Ashlene 12

On the top of the clock tower, a clock stood there. Alone. Usually ticking repeatedly every minute, every second. But today was different. I was walking around the shops like I always do but suddenly I felt a strange tingling sensation around my body I felt something moving me towards the clock. Since the clock man mysteriously disappeared, nobody, I say nobody, went near the clock. Once I stopped I saw a face. A face that I had never seen before. A face of misery and pain but my eyes were drawn to something else. The clock stopped. And everything else also froze.

Barsin 12

I looked up at the clock and realised it was not the only thing that had stopped!! All the people walking in the road stopped and all the cars. I was wondering what happened because I had not seen this before. The town had no noise and I was the only thing moving. But before I realised everything went back to normal. But how did this happen? Was it just my vision or was it real because I had never seen that before? The town looked like nothing happened and when I asked a guy walking in the street what happened he said what are you talking about. Hopefully it was nothing much just me daydreaming and I hope this doesn’t happen again.

Callum 12

I looked at the clock. This was preposterous! Everyone and everything you could think of was frozen. There were dogs in mid air catching balls and Frisbees. As I turned around I saw my daughter about to give me the biggest hug but she hadn’t been able to make contact. I fell to my knees in terror. What had happened and why?

Shalini 11

I looked up at the clock and realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped!!! So here is how the story started. I was walking down the street and I had a vision to the future that everything was going to be covered by the moon. The first thing I saw was that there was going to be a power cut then the moon will start moving and that’s all I saw. Then a paper flew into my hand. It was a clue and it said, “Wherever you look, you will not find, but if you think with your mind, it might just come back behind.” Then I woke up and wondered what that would have meant?

Thomas Maluga 13

Frozen murder
I looked up at the clock and realized that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped!!! I had stopped my heart beat became slower and slower. I saw a faint shadow behind me it was a man with a gun.
I dropped to the ground while the cowardly thug ran for the hills. Bang, bang the man had shot two another people. They were lying on the ground while blood poured out of their bodies like a water fountain. I had my hands covered in blood.
I thought I was a goner but just in time the paramedics came. They picked up the two people that they were near and then picked me up. I said “save me” very quietly. One paramedic said “we will.” The sirens started to cut out I couldn’t hear anything
the paramedic said “we have one dead person. The others are stable.”

Muhammad Umair 10

“What are you doing?” shouted Ben at the repair man.
“I’m just fixing this clock like you told me to” he answered. The repair man was old, really old! Impossibly old!
“You’re not fixing the clock like I told you to!” Ben shouted back. The repair man looked at the demolished wall he had just accidently broken with his hard hammer. WHOOSH! A huge gust of wind nearly blew him of his ladder! But then he stopped. He froze. No, he literally froze. His arms, legs, nose and entire face had just stopped moving!! He was an iceberg standing on the sea. “Whoa! What happened! Are you okay!” asked Ben with eyes full of fear. In fact, Ben just realised that everything had frozen!!! It was his worst nightmare!!!

Sanah Shah 10

Gradually I started to get worried. Swiftly I ran up the hundred steps in the clock tower. The tower was grey and wooden. It was definitely tall, as tall as a giraffe’s neck but it was also wide.

Finally I reached the top where the clock was; to my surprise I wasn’t alone, there was a boy. He was my age – I recognised him from school. He was an adamant ugly boy! He always wanted everything to go his way. Unfortunately he was the reason behind all of this! He stopped the clock and made everyone stop!

Just then I saw it. I saw the solution! I slapped him across the face, he fell down and I changed the time – it worked I could hear the noisy city again whereas for bob he was in a better place now!

Fatima Nagori 10

I looked up at the clock and realized it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped!

It all started when I woke up yesterday morning. I felt strange. Then I went to the bathroom and got dressed, but I still felt strange. She wasn’t!

Silently, I tip-toed down the stairs; wondering what would happen next and walked into the kitchen to make some breakfast. Usually, mum was in the kitchen as she woke up at sunrise.

After I ate breakfast, I looked around the entire house, searched every room and still there was no sign of anybody. Where was my family? Were they abducted? Were they dead?

Later, I looked out of the window and stared at the tall clock. It had stopped!!!

I stepped outside and I saw every single person standing as still as statues It was like their brains had stopped! What shall I do???

Atiyyah Patel 11

As the clock struck one , a man dressed all in black stepped out. He beckoned me up; he wanted to show me something.

The chime bars clung together and the clock turned. It was like an emblem. Right before me, stood a humongous family tree gleaming with silver gemstones. I was paralyzed with shock!

I explored the tower and more gems bestowed upon me. Suddenly, I saw a family frame. Then I realised it was this place where he sit and mourn.

Scanning the room, I saw him weeping next to his mothers’ throne. I asked him if he was ok.

He bolted out of the tiny door and left me stranded there. I screamed but no-body could hear me.

It was like an echo. The hurricane twirled and broke the tower. I was crushed and now, my family mourn. He just ran and I will always remember.

Arfa.J 11

Tick tock tick tock was just the clock and no-one else. I only saw a big clock just in front of me nothing else. As soon as I got up the clock stopped I didn’t know what was happening.

SUDDENLY!!! The clock made a tick and stroke once, twice then bang was the explosion from the back of the clock…

Abdullah.p 11

The clock had stopped. Everything was silent. The clock had struck six and frozen. The town below continued their lives without noticing. It seemed as though time had been paralysed. No tick, nor tock. The wind began to blow violently. Then it stopped abruptly. Then the people realised the frozen clock. They became extremely quiet.
But then, slowly, quietly almost slyly, the clock began to tick once again.
This was the day time died.
Then returned.

Adam.p 10

The cars had stopped and the birds just floated in the sky like brainless statues even the people had stopped (except me) and all they looked liked were life size still statues.
The wind howled like the howl of a wolf and the only thing that moved were the large fingers of an old oak tree .Then everyone glitches like some was controlling them. I just looked around and something pretty unusual happened, a lightning bolt strikes every single person and everyone started moving again.
From that day onwards I was scared it was going to happen again because I really don’t like being alone.

Sobia.J 11

There was a lift, anybody can go inside it. But it wasn’t an ordinary lift it was a haunted, Ancient, creepy lift and there were lights buzzing on and off. The clock had stopped so I rang the people who fix clocks, they said something’s wrong with the clock and it’s like some ones not letting us turn it. Later they went home but that lift was really haunted. I heard whoever had been up there had died especially at night. This person wants to take revenge and his spirit is waiting for you. So don’t get trapped by his words because the words fly in mid air. The bell struck 12:00 that meant its coming for you. It’s on its way …BOO!!!

Zeeshan.h 10

The birds had stopped the world had stopped. Was I dreaming? I scrambled out my bed and ran to my parent’s room .when I got inside guess what? They had frozen. As I walked down stairs the only thing that was moving was my cat. But I realised my cats eyes colour had changed it licked me; I froze in terror.

Dawood.B 10

As I looked up at the mysterious tower. I realised it had stopped! I was panicking; every clock that I had seen today had stopped d. You know what this meant? – The end of the world …

“Mum! Dad!” I screamed as loud as a pneumatic drill.

“What is it?” they asked together.

“All the clocks I have seen today have all stopped!”I shouted. They followed me to the clock tower quickly. “See?”

“You’re right,” they both panicked.”Find shelter, you’ll be safe in the cellar,” mum said.

“Hurry up! Hurry up! We ne need to get down!” dad said. “Aaaaaggghh!” we all screamed. Our house was rocking side – to – side. Suddenly I woke up drowsily. All it was was a scary dream.

Zineerah.p 10

Was that the only thing that had stopped? I looked up at the clock and realised that it had also stopped.

What was happening? Was this a dream?

I ran home to the basement aaaah!!! My parents were frozen.

I knew it had something to do with the clock but didn’t know what. So I decided to climb up the ladder of the clock.

I saw something shimmer, it was a necklace. Near it were some instructions. Before you could touch the instructions it said that if you want everything to go back to normal you will have to recite this spell. However if you get even one mistake everyone including yourself will perish. I recited the spell; it said haya, muma, gima and shuma. I hope I said it correctly. Surprisingly everything was back to normal. I was amazed.

Asad M 11

Tick! Tock! The clock chimed 12. It was midnight. Now I was surrounded by darkness and it was as silent as a mouse. Trees swaying around made my spine shiver. Sprinting up the steps, I leaned on a rectangular shape and somehow got sucked in. Soon after, a clog caught my eye and it was stuck. Surprisingly, I went back through the portal and realised that everything was as still as a statue…

Yahya M 11

I looked at my watch. It had stopped. Suddenly a car whizzed by. I ran home. My parents were texting like mad. My father looked up” It’s the end of the world. Yellowstone has exploded.”
“No!” I screamed so loudly my brother toppled over on his chair. Suddenly… darkness. I hurried over to the light switch. My father switched on his flashlight. My mum ran upstairs and lit the candles.
Crash. My mum had ordered pizza and the pizza man’s car had crashed. I was petrified. The door opened and my sister trudged in.
Something soft hit my face. My sister was blabbing on and on.
“Mark. Wake up. You must have had a bad dream.” Then I realized I had a pillow on my face. I checked the time. Only 20 minutes ago I had gone to sleep.

Fatima Mela 10

The clock had stopped everything was still, still as a tree branch. This clock was no ordinary clock it was the town’s biggest attraction. The clock had 6:00.The clock still. I did not know what was going on. As I was below the clock I could not hear the ‘tick tock’ of the clock anymore. It was not just the clock which was still it was EVERYTHING! It was like every thing was perished. I stood still in front of the dead clock. I still stand alone on this lonely quite perished world.

Ben 11

Shockingly as I turned around and spotted that the clock had stopped, my imagination turned wild. Could people be living there? Could it be broke? Could monsters be taking over the world? I didn’t have a clue. I thought that the best way to find out was to go up there and have a look for myself. The only trouble with going there’s how big of a danger is it? What am I walking straight into? Anyways, I faced my fears and went up, desperately wanting to find out what was wrong. Once I had climbed up I saw a whole in the back of the clock. That was going to be my entrance. First of all though, I looked around, the town was empty… As I entered the clock, I saw humongous rats. They were horrible. They were chewing on some rotten cheese. Their leader shouted ‘’boys, get ‘em!’’

Lillie 10

I looked up at the tower I realised the clock had stopped but then it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped I looked all around the city I seen people just looking at me I felt very scared .I went over to this lady and said excuse me do you know what time it is and the lady went get out of this town KNOW young lady. Iran away into a back ally I wasn’t looking where I was going and then CLASH I fell into this man with pots and pans I said oh sorry after I helped him pick up the pots and plans I said do you know what time it is I asked this old lady what time it is and she said get out of this town KNOW I felt very scared all the people that where in there where just looking at me …

Calum 10

Once I was walking on the beach I looked up and spotted an old town clock up on a mouldy tower I ran right round it looking for a door when I got to the other side I spotted a door I tried and tried but no luck what so ever I spotted a shine in the distance as I ran over there I tripped over a rock but I got strait up and carried in running and luckily it was the key I ran back opened the door and went up the rusty metal stairs as I came to the top I hear a howl and it echoed so something like a wolf must of came in or woke from me shouting so I hid and when the wolf was not looking I ran for it.

Ethan 10

One day I came across a clock tower and the door was open so I decided to go inside I climbed the ladder and I saw a face with red eyes but It look nice and friendly I had a chocolate bar so I give them it started to talk to me and came out it was a boy and he said thank you I am not from this planet I am fireboy!!!!!!!

Cory 11

The town clock has not been working for 18 years now and one day I was walking past with my food and then I heard this noise and I stopped then the noise stopped so I carried on then it started again so I decided to smash my way in and see what was in there then when I looked up there was a massive ugly 18 headed monster sat on pieces of wood and then it dropped slime on me and then it looked at me and screamed at me. So I ran out of the clock and it started chasing me so I ran even faster and it was throwing lampposts at me and cars. When I got home I locked the doors got my dog and ran upstairs and in to the bedroom to hide under my bed then I could hear it coming so I ran.

Libby 10

Dear diary today has been a very strange day there was fairy and witches. The day started of ordinary I woke up and went down stairs to have some breakfast. I finished my breakfast and went back up stairs. I got a phone call of my friend rose saying do you want to come to hers and watch a movie. I said yes. I got dressed and headed of to rose’s house but on the way I saw a clock that I had never seen before. I was curies so I went and had a look in it but as soon as I got to the top loads of fairy’s and witches showed up in front of me the withes tried to hurt me and the fairy’s were trying to save me. I ran out and told the police about it. The police have boarded it up now and were not going to be hearing from those witches again or are we.

Hannah 10

“Ahhhhh!” Peace at last. Wait a minute its only break time. A few hours later I was running home speeding as fast as my legs will carry me .Then something miraculous happens that changes my life. I stop by the old clock to admire its beauty and glorious landscape for one last time before they destroy it. And I made a wish a wish that could potentially shape the face of the earth. I wished for the clock to stay where it stands!
Later that night I was getting ready for bed when my wish came true. The next morning I woke up late no-one woke me up. I look outside and the clock hand is still. I wonder why? I thought briefly to myself.
I rushed out to the clock everyone didn’t move at all. I ran up into the clock tower and slipped on the icy, slimy cobbles…

Oliver 10

One day I went to the town hall and I was shopping in the mall and I looked at the clock behind the us flag and I saw that the clock wasn’t going around clockwise but it was going anticlockwise and I saw my brother hear this morning at 8:45am this morning and now I see myself talking to him and his little boy walking with him to zumiez and he picked a beanie hat and a tie dye t-shirt with super skinny jeans then it want back to normal and I went to the Galleria and took a selfie next to the U.S.A flag and I looked at the photo and the clock in the back ground was still moving anticlockwise so I got my wallet from home and went to bed.

Sam 11

As I slowly look up I realized that the clock stopped moving I stayed on that same number it didn’t move all the people in the town had suspended in air like their limbs had stopped working. I ran home but my mum had this thing I ran back to the tower to but at the top of the tower I saw a figure it was like me and him were chosen to be here I climb the tower I some how new that in order to stop this I would have to fined him to end this and if I didn’t this would not stop I was at the top and a caught him in the corner he gave me the antidote and I gave every one a drop it was strange after that day the people just went back to there normal lives but it was hard for me when I woke up to fined my self in bed.

Tali Monica 10

I walked alone on the dusty lane, the wind gusting out a terrible groan. The dirt was picking up now forming a horrifically huge whirl wind; the earth was trembling beneath my feet causing a huge racket. I couldn’t see a thing; the wind was trying to take me of my feet. I forced a fight against the wind but it took me down to easy. I pushed myself up just to fall back down as the wind turns into a slight breeze and the dirt just leaps into a mid-spring. Right before my eyes was a wartime fashioned clock, the sky was grey and no one was to be seen. In the pure dustiness of the sky, spitfires flew around in circles chasing the German planes. I gulped and made my way to the clock. Was the clock safe or not?

Poppy 10

This may look like a boring old clock but it’s really a home. Yeah it’s a clock but it’s a home. Can you believe it? This isn’t a home for a human like me and you this is a home for a family of mice. So the mother of the family is called Melisa. The father of the family is called Mark and the daughter of the family is called Maria and the son Marcus. So now you know them now so everyone hates this family. This is because they always accidently stop the clock. These mice are cheeky, mysterious and very naughty. Oh and I don’t know if they’ll be mad at me for telling you this but…

Katie 10

I know the clock stopped and through the day people were mouthing slower and slower and slower. I knew something strange was happing because I was the only one who was fine. It eventually hit 12:00 then everything stopped the clock the people even my yappy dog Evie who always barks. Then I knew I would have to save the world of course I had to walk case the car must have frozen as well. Once I made it to town I came to the biggest clock we ever had in England. I had to of course try to get in I climbed the steep clock work until I reached the clock it took all my muscles I had to turn the clock to get it working again but before every one unfreeze I managed to get home. So if the clock stops u know what to do. Do what I did.

Oliver N 11

Long ago a man named Sir Edmund Rowlands was born into the royal family. As he grew up he became a young handsome Prince but everyone knew he was different. In the year 1950 he turned 15 and his butler came into his room with exiting news, he said that he was to be king because his father was ill and could not rule anymore. His younger brother was in the room next door and couldn’t disagree more; he wanted to be king so he started to plan. On the day when Edmund was getting crowned his brother told Edmund the ceremony was being held by the river Keel and he believed him. Edmund waited on a wooden boat for everyone to come; suddenly his brother set him adrift where Edmund came to a big piece of land where he built a city and placed a clock in his honour.

Tyler 10

I saw it in the clock a little man with no hair. He runs around the clock with a hammer .I am really want to go in but I am scared of him he has got to be at least 100 years old. The door was cover in cobwebs and dust. I sent my friend in 2 hours ago.
I wonder if he is hurt or not it is about 7 O’clock at night and I am still out here sat on step in the rain. I don’t know what to do my best friend is in a creepy clock and the creepy man is looking at me.

Nathan J 10

I was having a walk to church but I noticed that the clock stopped. I walked in and I saw God and the devil were fighting. Demons and Angels were fighting as well. Demons were chasing me so I ran up the clock tower. I was saved by Jesus and he gave me a sword of light. We ran down stairs then fought to the death. All the Demons were dead so it was only the red fiery Devil. Every dived in and started to stab the Devil. The Devil started to bleed green blood and sank back down into the underworld. So I walked back outside and walked home.

Hannah A 10

I looked up at the clock and realised that it wasn’t the only thing that had stopped suddenly it went completely silent there wasn’t even the tick of the clock any more I looked around me and every one was frozen I heard a lathing voice inside my head I turned around and.

I saw a glance of a person running round the corner ”stop right there come back” I must be dreaming or something maybe he’s the one that frozen everyone not into ice but into stone the man came up to me and said “why are you not frozen well I suppose I will have to freeze you now “ ha ,ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha ,ha ,ha ,ha ,ha, ha.

Elliot 11

I looked up to the tower and realised it was not only time which had stopped. I had just finished university when the world had stopped .But not for me and my friends and family. Well most of the world. Just as I turned my back to walk home and I saw some dogs and cats and pigeons all together walking down the street I’m surprised they weren’t eating each other. The pigeon saw a big sack of seeds so the pigeon went over and ate some. Time had not just stopped for me animals to. I didn’t really care so I walked off. The dog was angry because he didn’t have any food… Suddenly I heard a noise, WOOF! and a dog was chasing me!! I was petrified. Was he going to eat me? Was he going to hunt me? I ran until I couldn’t breathe.

Kieran 10

I’m in the west of China well I think so what I can’t see no! What’s happen to my eye’s there creepy “so rude” shouted a woman and said “GET OUT!” Where am I “shut up” said the darkness.

Eve 10

Ahh the town clock everyone thinks of it as a clock but I know a secret.
It all started on my 10thbirthday when I had to go and clean up in the clock, I was just getting my brush and I heard a voice it cried “what are you doing here this is my home.” I asked who it was. Suddenly from behind a dirty piece of wood was a lime green goblin its eyes were dark green and gooey snot was coming out of its squishy nose. It had pointy toe nails with dirt up them; it had a dark black t-shirt on. I stopped tidying up and played with the troll all day now he is my best friend.

Savannah 11

It was a dark gloomy night strange things were happening, we were all were spooked out we didn’t know why, but as I got kid-napped and put somewhere I think they put me in a town clock. As I ripped the bag they put on me so I couldn’t see of me a saw lots and lots of other children sat there I was sat on the very bottom of the floor I ran up as many floors as I could I got to the top and there was an old rusty door covered in slime and goo spider webs everywhere, as I put all my might into it the door finely it opened I fell to the floor and looked up and the town clock froze I looked on my watch I moved the hands they were big and strong I did it and we were not scared anymore.

Joshua 10

One day I was walking with a scare in my body just by looking at the clock the time had stopped and I could see a strange figure just sitting there watching every one and as I tried to walk further on but . It was just impossible to move my legs, neck or my arms I was really creeped out that it was impossible how could this clock just stop the entire world all over the earth. It is really scary when your involved in this mayhem but soon later it started moving again so I ran up to the top of the clock tower and I busted open the door to get in and I saw the person sat on a chair with a golden and silver tiny tiny pocket watch for old people as he fell asleep on his deck chair all lonely an then I went home.

Izzy 10

I came to a beckoning tower I just had to go in. I walked through the doorway. A gust of wind nearly blew me of my feet. I quickly slammed the door behind me and carried on up the steps. The steps were slimy as I struggled on. A sign of relief came over me as I made it to the top. Suddenly the clock chimed it nearly burst my eardrums. I covered my ears as I fell to my knees. I rushed to the balcony. Suddenly I fell through the railing . I was clinging on to the rusty bars. My fingers slipped suddenly I was falling through the air. In that split second I thought to myself did I slip or was I pushed…

Rachel Rose Saunderson 9

This is my story. One day long a go I ignored every single person until one day. I was 12 and I wanted all the attention because I have a new piercing on my nose and I wanted to show it off, but it seemed no one was at school apart from me. So I went to visit Katie, I knocked on the door and no one answered. Then I looked through the window and saw every on stand perfectly still. Because I ignored them they ignored me by time standing still.

Samuel 12

I looked up and saw the clock. I suddenly realised that it wasn’t working, the shops were all dark and the people were in need of money to buy food. Then suddenly a cow came swooping in from the sky and landed just on top of the clock. It looked like it was about to fall but it just kept on trying to fix the magical clock.

The clock started to work and all the people came to the shops to buy food and they also brought a new jetpack for the cow. They thanked the cow and the cow flew off.

Tobias 11

When the clock stopped ticking, the unicorns awoke. All of the unicorns in the world flew out of the clock, eating rainbows and pooping jelly beans. They ate some food. Suddenly, a pink fluffy unicorn on a magical rainbow came and made them all go back into the clock. Then they disappeared, taking the clock with them. Then they were gone, and the clock regained consciousness, just in time for dinner.

Adults entries, just superb as always.

Jon Nikrich 40

The clock stopped one afternoon and time stopped with it. Nobody knew why.
The philosopher mused that this represented a new age and diminished all previous thought.
The scientist wondered which long-held laws of physics it disproved.
The attention seeker claimed responsibility. Nobody believed him.
The politician said it was a gift to be used wisely. Everyone agreed, and then disagreed how.
The inventor wanted to design a new future.
The environmentalist wanted to save the planet.
The ambitious philanthropist wanted to save everything.
“Wow.” said the clock. “That got serious really fast. I was just messing with you. Do you want me to restart time now?”

Neil Giles 65

I play this game with walls. I lean against them, hoping they’ll give way and let me through. They never do but the game keeps me amused while I’m waiting for something. The irony was that this time it was a clock tower I was leaning against. Can you hear the ticking? Each one gone a moment I can never get back … each one gone bringing me a moment closer to death. Not long now.

STORY STARTS BY CHILDREN

By Emily 9
I walked absent-mindedly into the eerie graveyard I was buried in; the recount of the day still makes me sob. Strolling through this graveyard as a ghost looking at my own filthy grave feels devastating. I remember the day like it was only yesterday June 19th 1980, it was like any other ordinary day when a car was zooming towards a crowd of people, the driver not noticing where it was going nearly hit them, so I ran onto the road and tried to leer the car in the opposite direction but it was no use the car didn’t see me. I sacrificed my life towards those people. I was only 16 when it happened. I carried on through the misty graveyard, I pondered on how many people have sacrificed their lives out there. Then I sidled back down to my grave to rest, and I drifted to sleep peacefully.

She ran through the woods adrenaline pumping through her body, running as fast as she could. Trying to get away from the ghost. She was very scared and did not know what to do. she was just running anywhere, she then looked up. She was in a cemetery! She was even more scared because she knew that there were more ghosts roaming through the graveyard and looking for people to kill! She obviously did not want to be one of those people! She was so scared she ran out of the woods and screamed for help nobody came to help. She knew she was miles away from help, because she was sweating like crazy!
But then suddenly a ghost popped up from the middle of nowhere she was so scared, she was
screaming and crying for help. But nobody came and there was utter SILENCE she was dead, she was gone never to come back.

Carrying, his war medals in her hand she approached his grave only to pause for a second or two at the tree to remember the exciting times that she had with her father. Full of emotion she put her hand to her heart and with a tear in her eye Georgina nelt down at the graveside.
Fighting back the tears Georgina reads the inscription on her father grave stone “Rest In Peace George William who fought so bravely for his country in the great war.” Georgina leaves a bunch of daffodils, George’s favourite flowers as well as a picture of his beloved wife, Georgina’s mother. Georgina stood, wiped the dirt from her clothes and the tears from her eyes she promised to return soon.

Daniel Carter was stood by his fathers’ grave on the early days of spring, all alone. The church bells rang 6 times and as he looked up to leave, something caught the corner of his eye. It was a woman, looking very ghost-like wearing a long black gown. Her blonde hair bowed untidily in the wind. She was facing the other way to Daniel, when he began to walk she faced Daniel and quickly started walking towards him, but then disappeared into thin air. Throughout the years, he came back to the graveyard and looked at that tree for the woman, but he never saw her again in his life. But every now and then, he would see blonde hair blowing freely, just like the woman’s he saw…

As I jumped around with joy, because the war had ended, my happiness soon came to an end. Excitedly I ran screaming to mum asking “whens dad coming home?” Turning around to look at me i could see something wasn’t right. With a tear in her eye, she said “he’s not my dear !” She explained that dad had gone to an army in the sky; making my world fall apart.

Years of sadness and crying into my pillow at night passed slowly, but I couldn’t help wondering where my dads grave was. So I went on the new thing called the Internet and tried to answer my query. Finally, I found him along with many of his soldier colleagues who also fought to save our country. As I nervously approached the cobbled stone cross, immediately that sad angry feeling I’d grown up with suddenly disappeared and proudness took over.

As I wandered through the unforgiving forest, trees tossed branches at me. An eerie silence consumed the woods. I walked into a clearing. As I did so a grey swirling mist swallowed me. It felt like I was travelling through time or space. Then it threw me onto a patch of moss on a hard floor. When I got to my feet I could see graves. I was in a graveyard. My heart in my mouth I walked over to a grave. That was when I got the feeling I was being watched. I turned round and saw nothing so I went back to reading the graves. Once again I thought I was being watched but when I turned round nothing was there. I turned to a grave. My stomach lurched when I saw a figure, covered head to toe in black robes with white hair, behind a tree…

My heart was wildly beating as I hid behind the old oak tree. Quickly, I took a second glance at the weird ghost like figure hovering over the gravestone. I recognised the tired, old looking character but I really couldn’t remember where I had seen him. I had a bad feeling that he had something to do with why I was in the graveyard in the first place. It had been a year ago now since my parents had passed away in the terrible house fire. I was saved but sadly they ran out of time to get mum and dad out. It was obvious that the fire had been deliberate however the police never found out who had been guilty. My life had never been the same after that but I made sure that every week I’d visit their grave to put flowers down in there remembrance.

Delores never dreamed she’d find love.
She was forty and had several dysfunctional relationships, all terminated by her, leaving a hollow in her heart. Those years of trying to make herself fit around another’s demands felt like a waste. A bruise that coloured all thoughts of love with the tinge of fading yellow and purple.
Then she found love.
He was a librarian. Kind, softly spoken, stable.
They read and lived together in peace until his cough became something more than an irritation. The doctors gave him months. Their collective grief for the future they could not share was overpowering.
On his death bed he insisted she would love again. She discounted his claim. He told her to come to his grave and etch her initials into the tree by his plot. Hers and her new love. So he could rest easily.
On her wedding day, she did just that.

Emily had been here dozens of times. It never worried her. She loved walking in the graveyard. She knew most of the names, memorised their dates and even found out where many of the ‘dear departed’ residents had lived in the town, long ago of course … well before her time, some of them.

Light breezes rustled leaves and long grass when she arrived. The air smelled clean and she’d brought fresh flowers as she usually did, to adorn her favourite gravestone; the one with the angels, where Nanna Perkins was laid to rest. She remembered Nanna, as everyone called her, from when she was a little girl … always a kind word and a glass of cold homemade lemonade on a hot day.

But today, something was different. She felt tired and distracted … she hadn’t slept well for two or three nights. She thought a walk in her favourite place would cheer her up. Now the fresh posy was scattered at her feet. The wind had turned chill and she stood, leaning against a tree, trying to keep from fainting. Before her a new grave, earth fresh turned, and a new headstone, one she’d never seen before. And it had her name on it.

It was never going to be easy. Death was always going to be a lonely affair, but Miriam had steeled herself for what was to come.
The long, protracted illness had given her plenty of time to question, to rage, to cry and to get thing in order. Making sure life could continue had been always been a priority and hours had been put into ensuring this would happen. All the family were aware of the arrangements and so when the day finally arrived, the day that horrible disease finally won, everything was in place.
Of course no one could plan for the loneliness and loss that would be felt but at least she knew she had done everything she could. Watching the funeral from behind the tree wasn’t the best way of dealing with the situation, but it was her way.
As the coffin was lowered she walked forward into it.

“What are you doing?”
“I’m just… you know, watching her in action. Did you hear that last group scream? … What?”
“You like her.”
“No, I don’t. … OK, I do, but I don’t ‘like her’ like her. I … admire her technical abilities.”
“You should talk to her.”
“Really? You think I should? No. What would I say? We don’t have anything in common. … OK. Yes. We have something in common, but it’s not a great line, is it? ‘So, hey, I’m dead, you’re dead, how’s that working out for you?’”
“You’re right. You should go with ‘I admire your technical abilities.’”
“You’re no help.”
“Who said I’m helping? Pointing out the flaws in your every thought process is the only fun I have anymore.”
“Look at the way she’s closing in on that new group.”
“It’s true. You have to admire her technical abilities.”
