This week Eve and Daniel are entering Julia Skinner’s 100 Word Challenge. Every week Ms Skinner sets children from all around the world the challenge of writing a 100 word narrative. Ms Skinner provides a prompt either in the form of a phrase, couple of key words or a picture. This week’s picture prompt is below.
100 Word Challenge by Eve
It was a clear, black, night and two boys named Kai and Ryan were toasting marshmallows above a fire. Once it got to about midnight, the boys got out their fishing gear.
‘We’ll catch a big one,’ promised Kai.
Staring into space, Ryan concentrated on the rocky road below him as he trudged down to the creek, hoping for a bite. At 1:00am, he spotted some strange bubbles in the creek. Kai heard a splash and only saw Ryan’s gumboots floating on the water’s surface. Kai dived in after, and not only him, but Ryan too, were never seen again.
