The Tale of Stardust City

By Polly Nickols, year 6, Blanchelande School

The tale of Stardust City

Seren stumbled up groggily and brushed the oddly marshmallow-smelling fluffy snow off her. Her metallic-silver eyes darted around the landscape and examined where she had appeared. It was a frozen desert. A forest of fir trees caked with snow stood a few metres to the west. The sun was shining, which Seren considered a cruel joke, considering how cold she was. She heard a crunching sound and spun around cautiously to find an Atlis Frost lapping icy water from a stream on her right. Suddenly, Seren noticed a shimmering, intricate and rather ornate bridge, painted to resemble a galaxy.

‘Yes! Ha ha!’ she cried.

Immediately, she clambered up the bridge. It seemed to go on, and on, and on! She continued climbing past the clouds, and finally when the bridge ended, there it was, the floating Island known as Stardust City!

Seren has never seen anything like it! The way all of the buildings shimmered and twinkled in the sun. The way the huge river glinted an aqua-teal colour was enchanting. The massive starpods (rather like skateboards, but shaped like stars that could fly) zipped about the city waiting for passengers. The way miniature stardust fell from the sky. The whole place truly lived up to its name! Seren tied her rainbow coloured hair in a ponytail, hopped onto the nearest starpod and started zooming around the bustling streets. Suddenly, the smell of strawberries washed over her. Seren spun around on the starpod, and flying next to her was a cute little friendly Hufflefly! All of a sudden, a horrible shrieking sound filled the air! The Hufflefly gained a look of pure fear and gave an alarming squeak and flew away. Seren, caught off guard, fell off her starpod, and tumbled into the city below…!
