The strange wood...

By Rhys Dudley, year 6, Amherst School

He opened his eyes to find himself in a desert with scorching orange sand, he was blinded by the sun.”Where am I?” he thought to himself. He was on an island he had never been on before. The last thing he remembered was being on his boat and crashing into a rock, apart from that he couldn’t remember anything. He thought to himself about where he would go, he had no idea where he was. He decided to head to the nearest town to get some help and hopefully go home. He arrived at a town which was quite big, bigger than his town. Either way it was amazing, the number of swimming pools he saw was like he was in the world largest water park that went on

forever.

The giant apartment block he saw was amazing, a swimming pool on each balcony. He wanted to live there. But he knew he couldn’t, he had to find someone to help him get back home. He decided to go to the ice-cream parlour to get some help

and because it was boiling and he fancied an ice-cream anyway. While he was there he met a kind young boy called Alex, who was about 12 years old.

“Hello there,” said the young boy, “My name's Alex, what is yours?”

“I'm Jake, nice to meet you, I'm trying to find my way home, can you help me?”

Alex replied, claiming he didn’t know much but there was a wood not far from there and the people there could help. Jake thanked the boy and went to this wood.

Once he arrived he was rather scared of what he was seeing. Blood stains on the trees, and the majority of them were bear. He saw a massive castle which looked like visitors would not leave alive. Jake had a bad feeling and then a blade came on to his shoulder...
