My story:

Wandering through the woods there was suddenly an open space.

There he was sitting as if watching into the future.

Sam was a backpacker who survived the earthquake.  He tried to save his friend who was buried under rocks and rubble. Only his head and shoulder stuck out. Sam pushed most of the rubble away, it was too late. The pressure had been too much on his friends body.

After turning away, Sam called 111 and told them where they were. He  looked for other members of the group and found three more. Two were easy to rescue. He gave the third CPR while still between the rubble. When the rescue team arrived they  took over and saved two more people. Sam was taken to hospital where he is still recovering from the shock. The people he helped decided to erect a statue  on the place where the earthquake happened.

Word count: 155

Extra information about the statue:

The Battle of Britain Memorial is a monument to aircrew who flew in the Battle of Britain. It is sited on the White Cliffs atCapel-le-Ferne, near Folkestone, on the coast of Kent.

It was initiated by the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust, and opened by the Queen Mother on 9 July 1993. It is formed of a large propeller-shaped base, with the figure of a seated pilot carved by Harry Gray sitting at the center.

  1. Very nice story Scrapy! I enjoyed reading about how Sam saved so many of the others by digging them out of the rubble. It’s sad he was unable to save the first one. Great story!
