Sunflower Cottage

By Sofia Rowland, year 6, Amherst School

“Where could it be?” Maria thought.

She had been for searching for ages until, unexpectedly, she stumbled over a tree root. Falling into a hole, she yelled, terrified, not having a clue what was going on. She landed on the ground, all dizzy, scanning the place.

She struggled to see as it was all misty, so she strolled along the path for some time. Puzzled, she noticed something bobbing up and down in the distance. As she came closer it became clear. Mushrooms. Big bouncing mushrooms. She had no choice but to pass the peculiar creatures. Madly, they bounced in front, behind and beside her, knocking her over many times until at last she made it.

She continued following the path, covered in mud. A maze? Maria hated mazes, she always got lost. Making her way into it, she hoped she would complete it soon enough.

Relieved, after many attempts, she made her way on. Flowers filled with colour swayed in the breeze as grass brushed along her fingertips. Gradually, she came towards an ancient, wrecked sign that read “Mythical forest”. She knew all about myths and mythical creatures and she loved them, however she wasn’t too keen on seeing them…

She cautiously made her way through the forest, looking in all directions, trying not to be seen. Everything seemed to be going fine until, out of nowhere, a creature came sprinting towards her and snatched the photo right out of her hand! It went so speedily it was a blur in front of her.

“Hey! Come back, I need that!” she called out.

Not stopping once, she managed to catch up and grab the photo although she didn’t realise something…

Slowly she looked up to see that it was the house, the same as in the photo! Sunflower Cottage.
