It was Thursday evening when the tornado hit. Mom and dad had been blown away in the raging storm, so it was just my brother and me. The wind and rain were pounding at my cold, wet face when I grabbed his hand. I wouldn’t lose him to! We tried to make it to the cellar through the furniture flying everywhere. Suddenly, the roof was torn off the house! My helpless sibling went soaring towards a massive oak tree at top speed. I screamed, “Don’t let go!” After a minute I heard him, “I’m trying to hold on” he shouted! The trunk snapped, and he was gone. -Nahla
It was a beautiful summer morning as my friend, and I walked into the brand-new amusement park. We figured we would go on the roller coaster first, after all it was our primary objective there. After about an hour of waiting in line we got into our seats and the overhead speaker blasted, “please keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times’’. The ride was fine until we reached a precarious turn. The car screeched and we started to fall out of our seats! “Hold on’’, I yelled. “I’m trying to hold on,’’ he shouted.
It was a dark and stormy evening. Mom and dad had already sent my brother and I to bring the cows inside. We were eating dinner when everything went black. “The power must be out. I’ll go grab some candles.” Dad was rummaging through the closet, when I noticed something outside. “Uh Mom” I pointed out the window. A giant black funnel was swirling in the sky. “Tornado!” My younger brother said scared. “To the cellar!” Mom yelled, but then the roof came off. My dad went flying but caught hold of the barn roof. “I’m trying to hold on!” He shouted, but it was too late.
100 Word Challenge My friends and I went adventuring at a campsite. While photographing animals, we didn’t notice that Johnny had disappeared. Birds suddenly burst out of the bushes as we heard a blood curdling scream! We all raced towards the sound and found Johnny dangling from a cliff holding on to dear life. “I’m trying to hold on!” he shouted, but we didn’t make it in time. He dropped into the river below. We watched in horror as the rapids swallowed up his body. How were we supposed to save him? Would people even believe this was an accident? -Alexis
We took no notice of the sign, oblivious to what was about to happen. We were going to visit my aunt in Colorado. The drive was long, VERY long. But the accident that only lasted a couple seconds, felt like forever. We took a Wrong turn, not seeing the yellow ‘DANGER’ sign, and drove down the bumpy road. At this point my dad was completely lost. And My mom was so involved in her book a metor could've fallen on her, and she wouldn’t have noticed. Then suddenly, the accident happened. A rock fell from the cliff. All I remember is the car turning, and the flashing lights. Alyssa
While exploring the new park on Monday morning we took no notice of the sign. It was a huge mistake because the warning said: BEWARE OF EAGLE NEST! Our family decided to play Hide and Go Seek together, and I thought I picked the best spot ever. It was up in the high branches of a beautiful Oak tree where no one would find me for a long time. As soon as I settled down for the terribly long wait a massive eagle swooped towards me at top speed! I leaped from the tree, but he caught me in his sharp talons. Suddenly everything went black.

When driving across the highway, we took no notice of the sign that said caution dangerous animals. Our van broke down, there was no cell service. Our only choice was to stay for the night. All of us had a strange sensation someone or something was watching us. Throughout the day, food and other necessities went missing hour by hour. Midnight was developing, freezing and pitch black. We were lost. Our phones had died we couldn’t find our car. We had to sleep in the open darkness, I heard faint rustling in my slumber. In the morning, I was the only one alive. Alexis
