5 minute story challenge!
Once there was a lad called Captain Magician and he was a grand and proud man. For his eighteenth birthday party he and his friends had a walkaround the park. At the park there was a bust in the middle of the grass and legend has it that there is a map under the plaque. He and his friends looked under the plaque and there the map lay golden and wrinkly.
That is where our story truly begins, they travelled over land and sea for days on end. The magician fought and fought and finally got up the giant snowy hill …
Mrs Davis' story:
“Why on earth did I say we’d do this today?” the magician cried out loud, as he stared up at the towering cliff face. His pet sea turtle just glared up at him – didn’t he know that turtles are meant to be in warm, sunny places?
With a sigh, the weary magician started the climb. Struggling to put one foot in front of the other, the turtle followed. Part way up, the magician took pity on his poor weary companion and tucked him under his arm.
The snow got heavier. The biting wind grew stronger. The clouds gathered fiercely. The magician fought and fought and finally he got up the giant snowy hill.
Exhilarated but exhausted, the magician collapsed in a heap – thankfully avoiding crushing the sea turtle in the process.
“What was that?” the sea turtle whispered in fear. “It sounds like … footsteps … lots of footsteps.”
The magician stood up slowly and turned to look at the sea turtle. “Well, obviously, did you think we climbed up all this way to see the view? It’s your birthday party!”
As the sea turtle turned around, he saw his closest friends scampering towards him – there was Mysterious Dave carrying a ginormous cake; Oscar the purple donkey bringing cheese; Peach rolling peaches (obviously!) and Geronimo the baby goat pulling a cart full of gluten-free brownies!
“You guys rock!” the sea turtle exclaimed in happiness.
