one hundred word challenge!!!!


One very stormy night I was faced with the most terrible threat that all of the seven ministers shake in their… well… I guess ghosts don’t really have boots but if they did, the seven ministeres would be shaking in them: a crowded shopping mall! Humans don’t we exist so we can’t reveal ourselves to mankind. There are a few humans who know our existance, and they have sworn not to tell. One works at the shopping center, but custemors are still a threat. Looks like I must wait. This will be boring. What will I do? I need those pants!!!!!

fred the camel part 3



Hi, if you have not read Fred the camel part one or part two click on the one you haven’t read. Now, without further postponing, the story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“That is it” I said to myself “I am avoiding all water holes from now on.”

I had nearly drowned in a water hole just yesterday. No matter how thirsty I was, I would not go near water holes, puddles, lakes or streams. None of those I would even touch. Suddenly the sand beneath me became wet. After a bit it was visible to see water above the waves. I was really freaking out when the water started spinning underneath me. Soon it was all clear. It was a whirlpool and I was caught in the middle!!!!!

The water pulled me under. I fought it, but eventually I was submerged. I was about 3 meters underwater when I saw the squid. I kicked at it but I couldn’t reach it. It swam out of view and a steady stream of black ink came shooting at me, coming from where it disappeared. The ink hit my chest and crowded around me. As soon as it started to crowd around me, I felt unnaturally tired. It was as if the ink was making me fall asleep. I tried to fight it, and failed.

The first thought when I woke was am I dead?  Then: what’s for breakfast?  And: why am I floating in a massive bubble in the middle of the ocean? I was, of course, floating in a massive bubble in the middle of the ocean. A squid swam up to me, and judging by his trident in one tentacle, he wasn’t here to give me breakfast. He blew a stream of bubbles at my bubble. His bubbles entered mine and when they popped, I could hear him. “I am going to take you to general squid head’s chambers. If you fight, I will stab you.”

He swam away, and the bubble I was in followed him. Soon, my bubble popped and I realized I could breathe. I snuck up behind him and hit him on the head with my foot until he was unconscious. I grabbed his trident and snapped it so if he chased me he couldn’t stab me.

I realized there was a tunnel to my right with driftwood on top. Inscribed in it was the word DESERT. I charged through the tunnel and was covered in light. I ran for 5 minutes so they couldn’t find me. Then I collapsed, and slept instantly.

Hello, this is reporter Joe Bob. Breaking news! There was a man found stabbed face-first into the Yarra river at 7:50 pm. The witness saw a teenager crawling out of the other side of the river. The teen gave away nothing but he is still our prime suspect. ” I was just having a swim with the fish when I saw the two legs sticking out of the river so then I swam to the shore.” he said. No-one belives him. The police tried to get the legs out but they are stuck. “The legs are jammed in.” said a police officer.



The jail was pure iron with steel bars. The guards were in the middle of the night shift. The only light visible was a light bulb in the middle of the hallway. I was only 12 when I was first sent here and here I am, 4 years later. Only 3 more years left. Hooray.  I am stuck with 5 other people, most around my age, cramped in a 2 person cell. We were all bored like most of the time when suddenly it went dark. The sounds of gunshots echoed through the crowded cell. We were being rescued! I would be leaving 3 years earlier!



If you read Fred the camel part one, you would know that I am a boring camel in a boring life and I find a water hole that floods. For the full story, click here. Now, for part 2 …

 I was so thirsty. The water hole I had drunk from seemed like a dream. After all, it was three days ago. Suddenly, I stopped on a sand hill, overlooking a valley. I could see a small lake below me. My slow steps quickened, then turned into a fast sprint. I fell twice, but I got back up and going. In no time I was at the hole. I leapt in, but forgot one simple fact: camels can’t swim! The hole was deep. I thought I would drown. Then, I saw a squid. The same one I saw in my dream. The dream was trying to warn me! My feet the bottom, so I pushed with all my might. It sped me to the surface. I climbed out, but the lake grew and flowed over my feet. I saw the squid, floating in front of me. With one strong kick, I sent it flying across the sand dunes. As soon as my feet made contact, the water shrunk back to its regular size. I took a quick sip, and moved on. I wanted to get as far away as possible.



Hi, my name is Fred. I’m a camel and I am bored, like usual. It’s very boring in the desert. One day I was really thirsty when I saw a water hole in the distance. I rushed to it and jumped in. SPLASH!!! It was so refreshing! I climbed out and lay down. In seconds I was asleep. Suddenly, the water flew into the sky and rained down on me. My eyes flew open and I got to my feet. I realised that my feet were real cold. I looked down and saw water up too my lower legs. It was flooding! I ran at top speed away from the water. But, I’m a bad runner, so I tripped and fell on the wet sand. The water went over my head. I was drowning! I saw a squid, and fainted. Then I woke. “AH!!” I yelled. So it was a dream after all. I was so glad it never happened. I left the water and continued into my boring, boring life.

Feeling paragraph


Again, in writing class, as a warm up, Lee gave us each cards with a feeling on it and we had to write a paragraph about that feeling. I got greedy this time. Here it is:

A huge meal was spread around me. I licked my lips and started on a bowl of pudding. Two hours later I finished. I didn’t feel well, so I went to bed.

I was so happy. I had completed the music with no mistakes. I would pass the exam and learn new pieces for the next one. Just two more exams then I can teach piano. “Yes!” I said to myself.

This clip was about the ratings of TV shows like PG and G.

Some people think the current movie rating key isn’t that effective.

They want to do it by age group.

The system was set up in the ninetys.

I now know how many film ratings there are; five.

I now understand that the names stand for something.

What is the current movie rating thing called?
