It’s time for a new adventure!
To recap if you missed the previous few weeks, I helped last semester with my nieces’ and nephew’s Creative Writing class. So now, each one of them has a full adventure story to share! Their imaginations humble me.
This week it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Haylee:
In her own words:
Hello! My name is Haylee. I am seven years old, and in second grade. I’m small, but fierce! My favorite book is The Puppy Place, Goldie.
This is the first story I’ve ever finished writing, I hope you enjoy it!
And now on to the start of her adventure.
You are sailing in the pacific ocean when there is a storm and you crash on an island. It is just you and your parents on the boat.
You get knocked over when you crash.
Getting up, you realize the mast is covering the hatch. The hatch is the only way into the bottom of the boat where your parents are.
You climb over broken bits of the ship to get to the hatch and bang on it to see if your parents are alive. “Help!” You hear them yell.
You shout back, “I will try to find a way to get you out.”
Searching for a wedge, you suddenly feel hands grabbing your arms. You turn your head and see ten bandits!
Scream and fight?
Go with them quietly?
You are angry that your parents are stuck and you won’t let them out of your sight so you can’t go quietly with these bandits. You took eight years of karate. Spinning around, you roundhouse kick and knock them all off their feet. This surprises them so much that half of them are stunned and the other half of them are knocked out! So you grab a rope as fast as you can and tie them up. Next do you:
Talk to them?
Send them sailing on pieces of the wreckage?
Shipwrecked-Talk to Them
You need to know more about the island so you take their masks off, and you talk to the bandits. When you take their masks off, you realize that they are your long lost friends, so you untie them and give hugs and remember that they had been sailing too and never came home. They help you open the hatch and your parents are thirsty. You stay on the island because you all feel happy there.
Yay! Well done on finding a happy ending. Thank you, Haylee, for sharing.
Next week I’ll introduce you all to Caleb and you’ll get to explore his adventure. Until then, have a wonderful week =)

Fight I say!
Arr! Makes me feel like a pirate, everyone saying FIGHT!
Going quietly might be a good way to figure out how bad, or not bad, the situation truly is.
I’d say scream and fight so your parents know something is wrong on deck.
Ah! Your parents could definitely be your element of surprise for the bandits if they didn’t hear you talking to them.
The Seibert’s say FIGHT!!
That’s the spirit! Maybe you’ll take them by surprise!
Wow this is a tough decision. On one hand your family is stuck on the other you are out numbered. The bandits probably heard you talking to your parents so they know they are there. I say go with them quietly and hopefully the bandits get my parents out.
B. Go quietly
Ah, good catch. They might know your parents are trapped.
Interesting start to a new adventure! Bandits right from the get-go! I say we scream and fight; can’t just leave our parents behind!
It would be hard to simply leave our parents trapped, that’s for sure!
We fight! We win! (hopefully) 🙂
Love your optimism!
Don’t worry about the numbers. Scream and fight!
That’s the spirit!
I think I would be quiet and see what they want! There are 10 of them and you are only 1.
True, the numbers are definitely not in your favor. =)
Sounds like a tough spot to be in!
Tough spot indeed! Thanks for joining in the adventure, Luis. Feel free to vote for whichever option you’d like to explore =)
