100word challenge

I drive by nothing just plain old desert. My car starts to chug and it hurls to a stop I hop out of the car and look around to  see a black disk in the sky fly right above me and make a high pich noise. And then the noise stopped I look up and its gone I hop back into my car and shut my eyes. Eye open eyes again to see something one the front of my car with no hair grey body and big black eyes staring strait at me. It pushes my car strait through the air.

Snapshot in time

I moved from one rock to another as the wind and rain pushed against my body. We were all looking at every single rock pool to see if there were any creatures lurking in the cold rocky waters. We would mostly stumble across crabs but they mostly left their shell. We came across many dead mutnin birds which had died on there massive flight through storms and windy weather. We had to be careful of which rocks we stepped on because they sometimes turn and wobble.

Run! Someone says as a massive tidal wave comes smashing over my neighbours  house I run as fast as I can with my bare feet treading on the concrete. I suddenly get pushed forward at a million miles an hour as the water whips me down the street carrying everything with it. I can see a tree in the distance  with all of the water gushing around it I paced myself as a grab a branch and struggle to climb up as water pushed me. I got up on top of the tree and looked down to see a letter in a bottle.

100 word challenge week 9

I was lost in the woods and a very stormy night I do not now how I got here but all I know is that someone is following  me and he is not here to help. I trudged through the woods not knowing were to go. The violent storm was getting more and more violent by the second. I came across a very strange house in the middle of the woods I knocked on the door and a little man appeared and let me in to the house it was nice and warm and cosy. I looked out the window and saw him.

CSI VS reality

Earlier this week we watched a video that shows how CSI on TV is not that realistic. On TV the crime always gets solved and its a very quick happy ending which is not the case. On TV the lights are very dime and blue but in reality the lights have to be as bright as possible so that they can look at the evidence more clearly. In the TV shows with evidence and hair they can always find a match but in reality hair can look very similar but the DNA of the hair is different. So I have learnt that what you see on TV is not always true.
