‘The Something Factory’

In Year 5, the children have been working hard on improving their story writing skills. Here is an example of a superb story opening by Oscar.

The Something in the Factory

“Don’t press the button!” said a voice worriedly but egging him on at the same time.

“There’s no other choice!” the other boy said. The button was rusting with age and was embedded in a thick layer of dust.

“Disgusting”, moaned Ted wiping his hand on his t-shirt. He pressed the button. BANG, it blew the wall apart and threw the two boys forcibly back. Ted heard a crack as they smashed into the wall with a terrifying pace. He thought he had broken his back, but the throbbing pain in his humerus told him otherwise.

“I told you that it wasn’t a good idea”, reminded Bill, yet again as Ted’s arm was placed into the cast. “Jeez, give it a rest will you?” he cried exasperatedly.

“But I did”, retorted Bill hotly.

The two boys kept arguing like babies, not knowing that they had inadvertently woken something from it’s million- year slumber.
