Kelvin’s magnificent story

Kelvin was given a challenge to write a story in only 100 words or less. As every word was important he used a thesaurus to help him keep the reader engaged. We are very proud of Kelvin’s story.

THUD, THUD, THUD came colossal footsteps behind her. She turned to see a hungry, ferocious beast reaching out his furry paws to grab her…but she ducked out of the way just in time. Then she used her walking stick to smack the bear on the head. The bear walked off sadly, replying “I was only hungry…”
