This is Daniel’s 100 word challenge entry for Week 10
The Man in the Lake
When I was walking home from school I saw two legs poking up out of the lake. The legs were wearing denim jeans and gumboots. It was strange, but I kept on walking. When I got home I had my dinner and went straight to bed. The next morning I got up at 6:00, got ready for school and headed off to the lake. The man was still there. Even though he’d most likely be dead, I decided to pull him out anyway. He was very light. It was understandable though because he wasn’t a man, he was a scare-crow!
What do you think could happen next in the story?

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.
What does the picture make you think about?
