The Doom Island

By Eleanor Jamieson, year 6, La Houguette School

As I step onto Mount Doom, I look to see the fantastic view of this deserted world down below. Soon I find myself next to a huge bird's nest. Strangely, I see no birds around so I step inside the gigantic nest for a closer look. Sitting at the side of the nest is a shiny, golden egg. On it are strange markings, words in a language

I can not understand.

Curiosity gets the better of me and I touch the beautiful egg. Suddenly, the egg opens and out comes an extraordinary key. Quickly, but gently, I take the key. As soon as the key is removed a huge scaly bird swoops down. The bird had feathery wings but a scaly body. It was terrifying! To me it looked like an ancient dragon!

Alarmed, by the sight of it I run! I am a fast runner but the massive bird is much quicker. I run down the mountain into a dark and gloomy cave. Gladly, the bird glides away for it could not see me.

Relieved, I sit down and look at the key. On it, it says “Look for the chest!” As I study it, I begin to hear a rumbling sound in the distance. Not thinking, I walk down the tunnel towards the mysterious sound. BOOM!

Something big explodes! Scared, I turn around and see some confusing writing on the wall. It read “Venomous Volcano, those who enter are never found.” Immediately, I begin to sprint back down the cave.

The rumbling sound gets louder and louder and louder, until I see thick, burning lava, the colour of the sun flowing angrily behind me. Immediately, I leap out of the way of the entrance to the cave and BOOM! The Volcano dangerously erupts.

Could this day get any worse?
