Talent for Writing Competition

Cassie Sharp was one of the English group who entered the National Young Writers creative writing competition.

Her brief was to create a short story using exactly 100 words. It’s not easy at all…you try it.

THE DARE

“Go on,” they dared, pushing her towards the broken door.
She squeaked, No! C’mon, don’t be stupid.”
They shook their heads and shoved her again. She fell inside the old putrid house. The boys pulled the door shut; they held the door so she couldn’t get out.
“Lemme out!” she screamed. She was banging on the door, in tears, when suddenly the boys stopped laughing.
“Guys?” she called out.
A floorboard creaked behind her. She turned slowly to see an old mummified woman standing there: her yellow teeth stained with blood. The monster stared at her, whispering “hello…”

Well done Cassie.
