A journey through a tunnel of trees. Chapter one, The Tunnel and the Monster.

Chapter one, The Tunnel and the Monster

I am walking through a tunnel of branches. I can feel the cool breeze on my back, I see up ahead a delicate golden sunset, I smell flowers of different types, I hear the flutter of bird wings, I taste the gravel that has been picked up and swept into my face by the wind.

I am travelling to my house that is at the end of this road. Then I hear a footstep behind me. I spin round to find a big black figure five paces behind me following.
I run.

I run as fast as I can until I find a tree big enough to fit me behind so I can hide. I wait for an hour. “That thing must be gone by now.” I whisper to myself. I come out of my hiding place only to see the big black thing right in front of me. “Hi.” I say scaredly.
“I’m just going to....”
I run away again

I keep running and I miss the driveway to my house!  “What is that thing and where is it?” I say to myself. I then stopped in my tracks and looked behind me.  Nothing. Absolutely nothing so I spin round and find I am standing in front of a gigantic thing. It is hairy and brown and stinks like rotten fish and cow poo.
“I think you are in the wrong place at the wrong time!” the giant says. “GO BEFORE I PICK YOU UP AND THROW YOU INTO THE ELECTRIC FENCE OVER THERE!”
Again, I run.

The next day, I told Mum that I was going to Casey’s and she says “Ok. Be back at seven pm. Take your phone!”

I arrive at Casey’s and she says that we should go to the forest.
“The one that is on the way to my house?” I say, frightened.
“Well yeah, it’s the only forest around.”

So we go for a walk to the forest and on the way I tell Lizard what happened yesterday afternoon. “Whoa! That is weird. Tell me again because I wasn't listening.”
“SERIOUSLY!” I yell in anger.

This is my writing of a journey through a tunnel of trees. This is the first chapter and the second chapter is coming.

Here is the picture that we had to make the story about. We all used our senses in our writing and there is a list of them on the picture.


  1. Wow, Katherine! You really are using your senses and including short, sharp sentences. You hook in the reader in. I like the personality you show in the dialogue at the end.

    Looking forward to chapter two!
