The story so far….by Arshia
Cornered! There we were, in a colossal cave, trapped. The menacing silhouetted creature snorted an inferno at the cave’s wall. Fire bounced everywhere. The flare hit us. Sweat trickled down my palms. I stood up and threw dirt and stones at both it’s eyes. We ran as fast as our little legs could carry us. As I struggled up the rocks, I tried to remember how I had got into such a mess.

“Shh…”the boy said appearing out of the darkness. He started telling me that he was the prince of England.
