…steel, carrots, tearful, under, mauve …by Kirsten

I felt tearful as I hid under my bed sheets. My mauve eye shadow rushed down my cheeks as tears splurged down my cheeks. I felt so upset. I thought I was as strong as steel and nothing could bring me down, but obviously I was wrong. We should have been like two peas in a pod, two carrots in the ground, but it just didn't turn out like that. My life wasn't ruined, my friendships were finished. I didn't have any friends, or self-confidence. What was I going to do? My mind was blank, my thoughts gone. I was lost...

…steel, carrots, tearful, under, mauve …by Cloud

I couldn't wait to go on the steel plane; I was going to go to Mexico for three weeks because I hadn't seen my family in ages. I felt a bit tearful just thinking about them. I sat on one of the mauve seats, for some reason the place stank of carrots. I placed my bag under the seat in front of me. The plane ride was eight hours I was so relieved when we finally landed. The landing and take-off are the best parts. It makes your stomach feel like it has turned upside down.

As I went home, I saw some mauve steel under a box outside our house. When I went inside the house I found a big pile of carrots in the living room. "Mum, why is there a big bag of carrots in the living room?" I asked.
"We ordered a bag of carrots but they sent a sack instead." she answered.
"Are they going to take them away?" I questioned. 
"Yes but we have to take them to the shop ourselves." Mum said. "Anyway what's the matter, you look tearful?" she asked.
"Someone was mean to me, but l don't want to talk about it." I stated.

… as the weather changed..., by Kirsten

I was happily typing up my homework on my new laptop when I heard a loud bang. It sounded like it was coming from outside so I looked out of the window to see if I could see anything, but I couldn't. I could only see a few people walking. It must have been someone gardening, so I decided to keep on typing. Then the bang came back and the sky turned grey. The people were still walking by and as the weather changed, they ran and sheltered under a tree. The sky was now bright blue! That was strange!

The Cloud

Boom! The thunder outside was getting louder and louder. There was no chance that we would be able to go outside because it was getting bad. I knew that the party would be ruined. Aimee and Courtney would have come here for nothing.We had to compromise by playing a game of Cluedo. By the end of the game I was already getting very scared. As the weather changed, they started telling scary stories trying to creep each other out. It wasn't a very good idea but it was very fun. None of us wanted the party to end.

… as the weather changed, they …by Sophie

The weather was cold and wet and there was no life about, just a boring old little town. We had flood warnings but the sea was still quite calm and I didn't think anything was going to happen. Unfortunately, the sea got stronger and came up to the beach edge, and as the weather changed, they {the coastal guards} put the flood barriers up. I now began to get worried so I decided to get my gas burner out and I took some food and valuable things upstairs just in case the worst happened. I just hoped nothing would happen...
