Wk 2- Mikey

The base

Work camp.

Hard days work done.It will happen sometime.I will get out of here they said 20 years I think. It’s been 7 years .I want to get back to my family if I have one but hopefully they know what I look like because I don’t know what they look like.I was trying to fall asleep but I couldn’t when I heard one of the people scream, ‘ Help.’ He was being wiped by our leader. When we were sentenced to our work I got up immediately to avoid wiping.As I dug through the dirt I got infuriated because I couldn’t dig anymore. My shovel wouldn’t break the dirt. When all inmates were trying to  dig and they couldn’t. We cleared the dirt that was covering the object that we couldn’t dig. Finally we saw glass. The glass had different colours in it that looked like jewels.We reported the glass with jewels in it to the leader and he let us go.

  1. Hi Mikey
    I really enjoyed reading this 100 word challenge as it evoked lots of different images. I especially liked your opening phrase “Hard day’s work done”. This gripped me instantly and made me want to read on to see what this hard days work was about. I also liked the words you used throughout your writing and I thought your use of the word “infuriated” was very good as again it helped to create an image in my head of the emotions you were going through as you continued to dig. Well done and I look forward to reading more of your work on the 100 word challenge.
