The dragons den

Come on johnny catch up i'm going to beat you. Walking towards the cave quivering in fear they see a glimpse of light hoping it has come to save them from the mighty beast but just as you move towards the light you see sparks of lava quivering like you were under a blanket so frozen you try running away. A small spark that catches you would burn you to death but the delineating howl from the noise of the lava draws you into the minute later johnny was gone the quest of finding the mighty beast was up how will i ever reach it now but just as i say that word from the end of the cave i hear a hiss and a squeal what could that be i thought to myself but then i thought again if this is a dragons cave won't that be a dragon..... well there is only one way to find out pulling the sword out of my back pocket i stride towards the hiss all you could see was pitch black the only thing that i brought in was a torch and a sword that i am going to use to slay the mighty beast just wait a sec i said to myself can't the torch help me see yes it can so i pulled the torch out of my satchel and carried on walking.My torch was glimmering brighter than a diamond but just then BANG what was that i said oh no my torch is gone the only hope left of killing the might beast was to kill it myself holding my sword up high above my head i strive to victory the dragon not seeing me that was my chance slicing its head off like slicing a cake i laugh ha ha i had done it i had killed the mighty beast.

My Time To Shine

My Time To Shine
Finally our class was called out everyone is waiting for their name to be drawn then...... Mine was.

Walking up towards the stage, slowly does it, adrenalin running down me spine everyone was watching me like eagles watching their prey. I finally reached the steps come on Jorja you can do this 4 more steps and your there.

Here goes nothing I murmured to myself. Three more steps and your there it's not that hard! Well for me it is. Dig it in I thought to myself. When I do things I finish them the floor boards cracking under my feet and with only 1 more step to go........ And I'm there. See it wasn't that hard after all.

Plus I got a reward at the end of all that fuss and I thought I done well !!!!!!!

It was time time for the game to start.

The whistle squealed go. The thundering foot steps of the competitors were like a herd of elephants stampeding. The crowd was roaring go Jorja go.
Everyone's eyes were glued to the attention the ball. Come on Jorja hit it in the goal come on. Every second counts I murmured to myself.

The air thundered out loud with the sound of a goal. Shouting yes the point go's to our team. Then...the whistles surrounded me by its sound it was shouting half time.

Triathlon day

On Friday walking out to the field I said nervously what's this day going to turn out like. I had butterflies in my stomach. Line up said mr chittenden I lined up in the middle triathlon line. Mr  chittenden said middle triathlon boys go up I knew I was after them shaking nervously with sweat running down my skin. Line up girls mr chittenden said loudly. On your marks get set go I shot off like a rocket.

Round the first flag I go passing all the other runners I slipped into 4th place.while the race was going on i heard the thundering footsteps of the other runners thump thump I looked around some more and noticed that we were entering a whole lot of prickles ouch,ouch I thought to myself how bad can these prickles get?

Half way through the race I slipped but I was determined to come in the top 10 what ever happens to me. I was determined to beat my sister Madaline also and not let her beat me. She was coming up beside me but before she could say anything I was gone!!!!
