The boy, hoping to find the gem, walked into the cave and stopped dead. His eyes stuck on a mysterious, red creature slithering about. A drop of water fell onto his head lightly, he looked up and the creature pounced on him but he was ready for that. He jumped, landed on his feet and made a run for it to the back of the cave were he found the gem. The boy picked the beautiful, green object up and stared at it. Then he remembered his mum wanted it and dashed all the way home on his fast scooter.

    Wow Hattie – you have mixed fantasy and real life together in your writing. I was led to believe that the story was set in ancient times and then, very cleverly, the end line brought me back to modern times.
    An inspired writing trick.
    Well done!
