The eruption of 2163 by Colin Bénézét Minns age 9

The eruption of 2163 It was a superb Spring morning of 2163 when Mitzi and Tyler woke to the deafening sound of metal being welded together.  Then they heard the clanging of hammer against metal.  After that, an abusive, unmentionable swear word resonated around the room. “Looks like Ada’s back at work,” said Mitzi, trying to start a conversation with antisocial Tyler.  “Mm” mumbled Tyler.  Then the residence, owned by child millionaires, Mitzi and Tyler, went silent.  The quiet was eerie.  Fearing the worst, Mitzi and Tyler rapidly strode into…

An unusual ghost storyy Naomi Wood age 10

Fredo’s pads crawled onto Melissa’s bed, and he nudged his nose against her leg. Melissa stretched her arms out and woke up. At first, she thought Fredo, her pet ferret, was lonely again. Then she heard a shrilling sound piercing through the walls of her house. She opened her lapis lazuli eyes wide which were such a deep blue, you could swim in the. Melissa was fed up with the noises in the night. She follows the trail, tiptoe-ing into the dark mysterious night, with her heart pounding. As the…

The magical box of wonders by Aaron age 8

THE MAGICAL BOX OF WONDERS by Aaron Valle-Walkley Age 8 Ben felt cold and thought… why am I the only one that has to sweep the chimleys? He was walking through the graveyard. He heard a noise behind a building, a noise very loud like a squawk and a roar. Ben wondered, what can the noise or sound be?! A fox? It was very dark and gloomy (the sky) and he saw a turkey and a box with flashing light. “What a strange thing to find in the graveyard”, Ben…

Goat’s Cheese by Emilie age 9

Ben stumbled towards the deserted graveyard with teeth chattering and hands shivering. He could see the light of the moon shining bright white. He wished that he knew a guy who would let him stay in his house for the night, but he didn’t. Ben heard the rustles of leaves and a howl. Ben was painfully thin, like a bean pole, who looked as if a gust of wind could bend him in two. “Come to me boy!” Ben spun around. He saw a small squirrel race down a dead…

Chapter 20

Brueberon’s eyes nearly popped out of his head when he saw the state Kastapella was in. She lay curled up in a protective ball on the floor of the cave. Her hair still stood out on end as though it had been gelled like that. She was trembling and shuddering like someone with a very bad case of flu. Her eyes were squeezed shut to try and stop the horrible memories of all her misdeeds. But it wasn’t helping. She could see all her bad actions like a never ending…

Chapter 19

Vandabar spotted Brueberon out of the corner of his eye. “Ah, you’re more or less back to normal I see.” “What can I do?” “It would be fantastic if you could find Kastapella. We need her here to establish exactly how she put this spell together. Without that we can’t reverse it. In fact, it might be impossible.” A little witch; only 3”2, with straight white hair hanging down her back like a curtain, materialised next to Vandabar. “We’ve located her. She’s in a cave in the Kilimanlayas Mountains.” “None of us will ever get there…

Chapter 18

Now you may be thinking that Kastaspella is being affected by Vandabar’s spell, but she is not. All he is doing is slowing Kastapella’s vengeance spell down. Beads of sweat are gathering on his forehead. His mouth feels as dry as the Gobi desert. And he hopes that Mistress Oliviana Castor-Fiber has reached The Tower with Clarissa because he is not certain how much longer he can keep Kastapella’s conjuration at bay. Vandabar is a powerful wizard, but Kastapella has created pure energy with vengeance at its core. And that…

Chapter 17

Kastapella waited for a feeling of elation to rush through her body. “I’m a magnificent witch.” she congratulated herself. The echo of her words from the crystal walls seemed to reply. “No-one ever said you weren’t my dear.” The voice made Kastapella squirm. “Just you keep out of my head, you… you… headmistress you!” “Perhaps I’m still in there because you know that I’ve always been right.” “You were never right. You know nothing of being a girl. Nothing of how it is to be laughed at. How it is…

Chapter 16

Vandabar and Mistress Castor-Fiber felt the power of the angry spell as soon as Kastapella released it. The headmistress grabbed Vandabar’s arm. “Can you do anything Wishy?”  “I can slow it down Olly but I can’t stop it. Can you sense who it’s directed at?” The headmistress frowned as she tuned her senses into the spell. “Yes, it’s designed for Clarissa. But why I just don’t know.” “The oldest reason in the world Olly.” Looking at each other and nodding they muttered in unison. “The Green Eyed Monster.” Then they…
