His heart was pounding as they flew over the crest of the hill. He could taste the gritty dirt that had blown underneath his helmet, and the trickle of sweat that poured down in his neck. The roar of the engines filled his ears, and he fixed his eyes on the next jump; this was his chance to shine...

Shipwreck

Can you continue to tell the story of the shipwreck, describing how it happened?

 

Story starter

 

Three weeks. That is how long the ship had been like this; empty, abandoned, alone…
Now, all was still. All was calm. The ship lay there, as if in a peaceful slumber, gently rocking like a baby’s cradle in the tranquil bay. The sea barely moved. It was covered in a thin layer of wispy mist that sat on top of the water like a comforting blanket, gently illuminated by the fading sunlight.
A bird landed gently on the mast of the lonely ship, pleased to have found a resting place after a long journey.
Everything seemed to have turned blood-red. The sun looked down on the bay from his position in the sky, soon to go to sleep himself, casting a crimson light over the clouds and the milky water in the bay.

 

What had happened here?

Why was it so peaceful?

Had it always been so?


You could write the story from the perspective of one of the crew or you could write as the bird sitting on the mast.

Story starter

 

The creaky, old doors had not been opened for years. The beast had always lived inside but nobody dared to visit. Noises that echoed from the gaps in the door had haunted those who heard them. Nobody knew what the narrow, mossy steps led to. Nobody knew what was lurking within.
Groaning heavily one day, the large, wooden doors slowly began to open...

Story starter

 

It was the middle of the night. That's when they came...
A typical autumn evening saw a scattering of fallen, auburn leaves on the highway. Light leaked from a flickering streetlamp which buzzed faintly as the light bulb struggled.
The wind moaned quietly and the leaves crackled as they rose and fell, dancing as if controlled by an unseen puppet master.
A humming noise was the first sign of their arrival. In the distance at first then filling the street as it came closer. It hovered several feet from the road, tilting slightly from side to side as if surveying the land around.
A little girl gasped as she watched from her bedroom window…
