Mystery of Heather Hall – Part 13

Dear Diary,

This is it, ‘Mother’ has told me the truth, but I just can’t believe it. I’ve never fitted in to be a girl who lives with wealth and fame. It isn’t me… or is it? I just can’t do it… write it in my diary, I think I better explain soon. I think she had better She should be sorry. Very sorry that I found out.

From Daisy

“I know, I know, I can’t say this. It is very hard.” ‘Mother’ explained.
“Just tell me!” I yelled. I sat down in the uncomfortable cage, waiting for an answer.

“I am… I mean we are not your real parents. My name is… Isabella. I was the youngest of my Mother’s daughters. She had 5 of us. I ran away when I was 18 and met your not-so-real Father when I was 26. That was it,” she confessed. I was fuming. When was she going to tell me about the whole me situation? About why I was here at this particular moment.

“I stole you from a cottage deep within the woods. I couldn’t bear it. You were crying and you wouldn’t stop, I tried to calm you but then your Mother came down and I wasn’t thinking-” she burst into hysterical tears. I felt a bit sorry for her. But mostly, I was angry.

“What else is there to this ‘story’?” I said.

“I picked you up and ran back to our cosy Hall. Heather Hall. It was my Grandmother’s. It has been in our family for generations. I wanted you to carry it out for another. I raised you as if you were actually my own. You smiled at your Father at 7 weeks old. Your first word was ‘Hello’ But then, it started to get awkward. You made friends with them 2 girls. Your attitude changed. I haven’t told you this story until now. That is all there is to it,” continued Isabella. I was literally as boiling as a lava bucket. I was SO ANNOYED at Isabella. I couldn’t believe it.

Mystery of Heather Hall – Part 12

“Help me Bubbles!!” I cried out. Darkwood had me by the leg. His grip was like steel, not letting go. I started wriggling to get out of his grasp. Laughing, he pulled me out of the portal, and away from Bubbles. Swiftly, Darkwood led me to his ugly, grey mansion (of terror). My Mother was still trapped in a cage. “Oh Mother. I tried to escape. But I failed. Only Bubbles left.” I cried. Mother sadly just looked at me and sighed. “I’ve always thought you of your real parents… oh no!” Mother stopped and looked guilty. “Mother… what real parents. You and Father are my real parents.” Slowly, my eyes filled with tears, and they slid down my face. “What happened, Mother? Can’t you tell me the truth this time? I have always thought you as my real parents… but you’re not…?” I whispered. I hid my face beneath my long hair and cried. “What HAPPENED, Mother. Or should I even call you that?” I mumbled, furiously. With a big sigh, ‘Mother’ opened her mouth and prepared to tell me… the truth

The school bully! – Anais

“Please don’t do it , I’m begging you!” I ran , pulling myself carefully up the Green Pipe , sometimes i get so scared of Daina.  Unfortunately , it felt like it was a long day of school : I hadn’t slept much that night as i was terrified of what was going to happen at school? What was  Daina going to do me? Sometimes , to help me stop thinking about school, I go swimming or horse riding. I love it! Last night i went swimming , I swam until my heart was beating like a thousand drums in my chest like it just wanted to pop out. Afterwards, I got on my horse. BOOM! I fell…

National pet performance!


Swiftly, my horse and I galloped far from home, just as dawn was breaking; we were training for the national pet contest’s talent round. Due to this, I carefully tried my best to seek out the best thing to perform for this tournament! “Suzie, be careful, you have ruined your best green saddle!” I sighed in hope that our performance wouldn’t fail as badly as I imagined. After a few hours, I became a bit hungry therefore I Swam across a pond nearby and held onto a pipe  to pull me safely to shore, (it was trapped between 2 rocks. “Yummy!” I ate my snack!


This is the life of the Green Horse…

This green horse lives at 22 animal road and he loves to sleep. One day he woke up and thought “Do I spent more time sleeping than awake?”. So he planed to change his life one morning he was up at 8:00AM Rather than 7:00PM and he decide to make an English breakfast. “Oh I’ve got everything I need” yelled the horse. Suddenly, he shrunk and was tiny. He was standing in the sink. So carefully he tried to climb down the sink pipe and swam in the dirt water and was never seen again.

The Green Monster ~100WC~

Dear Diary,

So today hasn’t been the best day ever my adventure to try and catch the gigantic green monster (which failed badly).

So I was on my way to the deep dark cave in the deep dark depths of wood of North Decoder, trying to catch the ginormous horrible terrain destroyer GREEN MONSTER!!!! I ran through a ditch on my way to the home of the revolting mess (also referred to as the big bad beast). As I ran towards the end of the wood I slipped next to a pipe luckily I didn’t hit my head. Carefully, I swam toward a massive piece of land, where I found a horse therefore I hijacked it and galloped away to another place far away….

World Book Day

Deep in the hollows – part 2

One day, another family, who were looking for a new home in the U.K, were travelling in their own private jet. This family were very rich too, seeing as lots of their relatives were very famous. However, Melony, one of the youngsters of the group, was looking through a window when she saw a peculiar view of the ONE AND ONLY… 

Sofa! “Mother! Oh my! How odd, I have seen a sofa from miles in the air…!” The clever yet confused child wailed. “Calm down!” Her baffled mother sighed. “Ok, then when I looked out of the plane window there was a sofa!…

100WC Week 23.

One day there was a man called Joseph. He was very old. On one Saturday he moved house but he threw his couch in a disgusting pond. Suddenly, Josephs moving truck came so he got in and moved house. After a while, a little girl found the glorious couch and ran home to get her father. Her father brought a ladder and picked it up and took the couch to a forest. They took the couch to the place where their Grandma died in the forest. Also, they asked a man to carve Grandma in a stone and dusted the couch.


Dear Diary, I was walking down the park and I found a sofa in the middle of no where. Where could it have come from? Out of the corner f one eye, I saw a dark shadowy figure taking a computer and placing it on the sofa. And piles and piles of useful things were all on the sofa. All of the stuff was loaded into a big van and it drove into the forbidden woods! What the??? I crept in behind it and the person stole the van when the driver got out. Was it a theif? Considering it had all that stuff…

Deep in the hollows-100WC

100wc sofaIn the heart of the overgrown forest, where suspicious sights may be spotted, a sofa was dumped by a family, who where currently decorating their posh house. However, this leather piece of furniture was, actually, a huge mistake to throw away; it had been full of good luck and home to a mythical cat named Fidget. As soon as the old chair had landed on the dirty, crumbling soil it became cold and eventually turned to mossy stone. “Meeeeeeeeooooooooooow!” the odd beast had also  changed it had become a…

A chuckling kitten! Throughout the woods, strangely, the local beings knew much about the uncomfortable seat!
