The flash

The Flash One day I was walking down a hill . All of a sudden I saw a bright flash . It started to rain. Thunder struck an apple tree .I ran into my house and went under my blankets . I was as scared as a human being chased by a lion . I opened my door and Boom! all my power went out. My lights didn't work in my house . I touched my light switch and got an electric shock . I passed out .When I woke up I felt dizzy .I turned into a robot, went outside and got struck by lighting, I went crazy .

Beyond the lines

Beyond the Lines

I am a soldier I am going to war with my friend,  brother, and other random people.  I said to them 4 people got shot so this is our last moment together. Huddle up and hope that we don't get shot. The ramp opened . We ran as fast as we could. I saw my friend get shot. I am so sad . I was running and suddenly I heard a bang, my brother got shot to . I thought this would be fun but it is not. Run they're chasing us with a  tank. My dad and mum are probably hearing the gun shots . The sea was full of blood but I survived. At night time we built a trench. Rats were in the trench. When we woke up we ran to the other teams trench. We saw some awful things and only two people survived the Captain and me.
