Finish the story begins with: “I watched the vulture looking at me hungrily as I lay on the ground bleeding and injured.”
“Shoo, shoo, leave me alone” My voice is only croaking. The vulture flies away.
I can’t exactly remember what happened to me. My thoughts are blurred by pain and I feel like fainting again. I must not do the fainting. The vultures will see that I am lifeless and will start eating my bruised flesh. Here is one sitting next to me. “Hey chum, what happened to you? You look as if the vultures started their meal on you.”
I open one eye and see my friend looking very amazed at me. I still can’t remember where the vultures came from.
The last was, me sitting on the steps of the pub watching the girls, and next the vultures were landing!
Finish the story begins with: “The A&B Building was made entirely from driftwood.” Why driftwood some of the prisoners thought.
The command was: Pick up as many straight, strong driftwood as you could find.
The prisoners were in groups of four, chained together by their feet. How could they work and find wood like that?
Suddenly one group found a long piece of wood. Between the four of them they carried it to the wagon. Before they dropped it into the wagon, they whipped around and killed their guard. They quickly grabbed the keys from the wagon, unlocked their chains and ran off.
In vain! A whole garrison of soldiers, who were camping nearby, chased and caught them all.
The four were locked up in lonely detention for thirty days.
The remaining prisoners kept on collecting more driftwood to finish off the huge backside of the A&B Building.
Finish the story begins with: “She lived in a mango tree.”
Frank’s last words before he passed on. Little Sue kept on wondering where the mango tree could be? A mango tree big enough to house a whole home? Impossible but, maybe there could be a tree like that.
Little Sue started asking around. One day she, met an old tramp on the way home from work. He begged for something to eat. Sue invited him in and gave him bacon and eggs.
The tramp started by explaining that Frank and he had been best mates for years. Suddenly the mango tree and lovely lady came to mind. Both men were in love with her. She always disappeared after meeting one of them.
One day both men, decided to follow her. They did not know of each other’s movements until they both stood in front of a huge tree with stairs leading up the tree. They looked at each other. Both hurried up the stairs. Reaching the top there was nothing. Just branches and leaves. “How could the lovely lady just disappear in thin air?” the old tramp sobbed.
Finish the story begins with: “From her small balcony, the witch watched the world go by.”
The witch was not the usual witch. She was a special child-like witch. She wore her black coat and hat only on special occasions. Before she went out to sit on her balcony each morning, she would first dress up. She always brought her favourite broom with her out onto the balcony for in case she wanted to follow someone in a hurry. Her black cat would always be at her side. The same ritual every morning at six o’clock. As soon as she detected her best friend coming down the path, she would jump onto her broom and fly down to meet him. It was only her friend that knew she was waiting on the balcony. Passers by could only see the black cat every morning waiting to see who was passing by.
Finish the story begins with: “Where did they go?”
“Where did they go?” Ma Suzy asked Pa Glen. She thought he said that they would find the children there.
“I don’t know Suzy. The stranger gave me the map and instructions. Here we are. He did not say that we would only find ruins!”
Suzy started crying. Not human tears but splashes of red blood. She also started moaning like a lonely wolf. Glen had to put his fingers in his ears to keep the eerie howling out. It scared the hell out of him seeing his wife turning into a werewolf. Her hair stood wild and her eyes glowed dangerously. She came nearer and nearer to him. He had to do something.
Suddenly he remembered the words of the stranger:
Don’t look her in the eyes. Run to the ruins. You will find your children there. Be careful.

Finish the story begins with: “He thought he found the perfect hiding spot.”
He thought he found the perfect hiding spot.Body as quiet as a mouse.Eyes closed. Breathe in breathe out, in, out…. Opening his eyes gave him a shock.
What is going on? His eyes widened and glowed through the curtain like flames. He could see the shadow coming nearer and nearer. Quiet now, don’t move! One second and he could jump out of hiding.
I took the feather duster and touched Kitties foot sticking out without him knowing it. The sudden touch scared Kitty, he went up the curtain in a flash. Reaching the top of the curtain rail he came tumbling down right into my arms. “What happened Kitty? Did you get a fright? Poor Kitty, just feel your heart beating. Calm down!”
Finish the story begins with: “The petroglyphs told the story of an unusual event.”
“The petroglyphs told the story of an unusual event”
these exciting words kept on turning round and around in professor Allen Schreuder’s mind! An unknown man called him. He had someone who could explain the meaning of the petroglyphs.
Prof Schreuder was standing next to an old tattered woman. She started:
Two tree like drawings on the left were two tentacled blood suckers. The girl in the middle tried to chase the goats away because they were precious to the family. The family were shocked to see the girl. They ran away like lightning.Top right a snakelike monster was curled up.It had eaten the girls father. Only the footprint was left. Could the girl save herself and the animals? The old woman told the professor that she was the young girl…..
