Mystery marble: Mondays Finish the Story

This is a follow up of my story from

“Secret meeting”

This week, thanks go out to Eric Wickland of Momusnews who came up with the opening line to go with this week’s photo!

Finish the story begins with:  “At first, it looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it.”

The boys dad opened the parcel. In awe they stared at it.

Joe the big boy thought: We crossed the railway lines safely. Dad waited in the alley and quickly shoved us in at the secret door. Now this strange object!

The father took the object in both his hands. Closing it in his hands he blew on the marble through his thumbs.

“Daddy, Daddy the dogs are coming” the younger boy whispered.

The dad opened his hands.

The marble has grown! It slowly opened in segments like a honeycomb. In each segment was a tiny moving object. It wriggled and started growing bigger and bigger. “Wow,” Joe  said: “real dragons!”

The dogs were at the door. The father opened the door and commanded: “Blow them away!”

            1. It does not happen all the time but I get so worked up when it happens I can’t stop thinking and expanding the thoughts! Ha ha- sometimes I get a laugh at my own writing too! 😀

                1. Thanks, I think introvert has got a lot to do with it! While teaching I could tell stories not as they are supposed to be told but I’ll use real experience and put it in story form

    1. Ha ha, I wanted to end with : The dad commanded the dragons to get rid of the dogs. The dragons marched on command to the the door and burned the dogs and people to death! That would be to gruesome. Maybe just burn them. Enjoy your weekend! 😀
