100 Word Challenge by Emil
Gray, dark, sparkling... all different adjectives describing one thing. Rain. As I leap against the funny looking lake as a frog jumping for a fly, I see a tortoise on land walking slowly. I wave to it as if it can understand, as if we have something in common. As I travel through the air my imagination becomes thoughts different things pop into my head. As raindrops fall from a cloud gray as pavement, the last orange leave falls from the ancient tree. I come closer to the water. Four… three… two… one… my last sight is blue…

Story by Noah
I went to see the Yankees vs. Red Sox Baseball game with my dad. I was really exited! I was literally screaming at the top of my lungs! I was really sweaty and hungry and thirsty! I kind of was booing for the Yankees because they were losing. The score was six to seven. Some new guy named swashbuckle. I was afraid this guy had no chance of making a homerun… Suddenly I heard a crack… the crowd went wild! My dad and I were exited so much that we threw our food at the team. Then we got kicked out afterwards.
This is how this ridiculous story started. I was just walking around my neighborhood. Just looking around and admiring my surroundings. But then some guy was like “NOOO, you can’t be calm” so that jerk kidnapped me. I didn’t know where I was going, I was just seeing his strong arm on my eyes. I was scared, but I thought he couldn’t really bring me anywhere far before the cops caught him. After a couple of minutes the guy stopped. He pushed me on the floor and suddenly I heard a crack. He had opened a bottle of milk and poured it on me and laughed. “Seriously?” I thought.
Suddenly I heard a crack. A big black figure came out of a door. Some gross red liquid was dripping down his mouth. I realized it was a vampire. I started running for my life. Warm sweat was running down my rough face. “Bang” I bumped into a rapped mummy. A piece of cloth from the mummy got stuck to my hair. I pulled it off. Soft grains of sand went into my eyes. Will I ever get out? I kept running as fast as I could but I couldn't see. Will I ever see my kind mum and dad again or will I die?
