Crime scene
by Merryn Mokomoko
In Christchurch there has been a terrible crime scene on August the 15 2014. There had been a little 7 year old farm girl running around her farm. She saw a man wearing a black mask she said

“What are you doing here?” he just walked closer and closer and chopped her legs off and threw her legs in a pond nearby and threw her body on the other side of the pond. All you could see was half of her legs and her small black gumboots. Police officers have been trying to investigate but they haven't found any clues!

The Piano
I am a kind old man that is very good at the piano. I know that I am getting old now and I might die soon so I am going back to some of my memories that I can remember. As I am playing the piano I start to remember My wife that past away from cancer 8 years ago. I also start to remember when we went on holiday to Fiji it was lovely there we had a nice time together, we went diving together and found lots of cool shells. I look beside me and I imagine My wife playing the piano next to me. I think of some times like when I went to war and I saw my brother die, It was terrible my own brother was dying in my arms I tried to help him but it was too late. Meanwhile I feel sad and I want to remember some happy times, I remember for my 7th birthday my dad got me my own ride on horse it had a nice fluffy soft mane with eyes that looked like they were real. As soon as I had opened it I new that it was the present I had ever got. Unfortunately my dad past away not that long ago I can remember my dad giving it to me and the big smile he had on his face was a nice way to remember him. Playing and playing the piano I start to remember my mum, she was a lovely old lady she would give me the tightest hugs in the world my face would go bright red. My mother also died it wasn't a disease or anything she just got really sick she couldn't walk and she could barely talk. So we took her to hospital and from there she past away. Luckily I have my grandson to keep me company since I love him so much I handed my ride on horse to my grandson he loves it evan tho it is not like a scooter that they have now it is still the best present ever. I start to remember some more memories like when my grandson was only little and he was just born he was the most lovely thing ever. I also start to remember the day me and my wife got married it was so beautiful we got to go in a limo away for tea we had all our family and friends come we had every sort of lolly for desert  and we had every type of ice cream for dessert and we had really yum stuff for tea I really miss having my wife around but I can suck it up. As I am remembering the wedding I also start to remember the day that my wife died that was heartbreaking I remember being away from her for 2 weeks and then I went to go see her and she wasn't in her room so I asked the people behind the desks. I asked where is my wife they said what is her name I said lucy i'm sorry but she past away last night I burst into tears and walk away. I can't really remember any other things and start to get tired so I stop playing and leave. But I think of one more memory so I jump back on my piano before bed because this is a really good memory it was when I owned a farm with all sorts of animals there were fat ones small tiny ones and big ones lots of them I need to go to bed soon so I stop and go to sleep good night. The end

Mud slide 100 word challenge

Week #45   

World Events for your writing
I’m sure you won’t have missed the events in Barcelona, Spain this week or the devastation caused by the mud slide in Sierre Leone and the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. The prompt this week uses the emotions that the media has shown us.

Latest prompt
As I said at the top of this page, the events around the world this week:
… as it came rushing towards us we…


I woke up this morning late for work so I jumped out of bed and got ready. As I am brushing my teeth I look on my phone and see that it is 8:00am “Ahh I should be at work by now.” I start walking to work now and I see a hill that looks like the mud on it might fall. As it came rushing towards me I scream as loud as fireworks. I look around and see lots of people crying and asking for help. All I could think is that so many people have lost their family.

whale fantasia

Week 3 whale fantasia
Today is the day where I go diving in the water for a swim with the whales. In the ocean with two of my two friends Aliyah and Talia we are having a big day today. My dad is taking us in his boat and dropping us off we don't want to do it we are to scared dad says “three two” and before he could get to one he pushed us into the water and laughs.
We dive in it is so beautiful in here. The deeper and deeper we go the darker and darker it gets. The ocean shone like stars in the night sky. It looks so pretty with the sun shining through the water.
I am starting to get tired and getting slower and slower my friends are spinning round and round  and round in circles. I love it in here so so much It is one of the best fun thing I have done in a while.  I go round the corner and I see 4 big humpback
they are so humongous they are as big as a building. They have lots of little dots on them they are called barnkells. As the wales turned around their tails rubbed on me they feel as if they were a sponge cleaning me.As the water flows the bubbles feel nice on my skin. The ocean was as cold as a freezer
and the water was as clear as a window, and the water flows so nice.  I can feel some of the wind on me from outside the water. I go back up because I am getting really tired I jump back on the boat. I love  this trip so much I can't wait to go again one day.
