Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 03 ‘The Game’
Day 03 is a #OneHundredWord story, inspired once again by folktales that we have been reading. We loved the thought of a child breaking the starry sky, whilst playing a simple game.
‘The Game’ by Rose English
At the top of the world, sits Nanook; surrounded by shards of black glistening crystals, light having been extinguished.
He feels guilty – but it was just a game.
Yet he had knocked the North Star from the sky, leaving his world dim.
“Have you learned your lesson boy?’
The village elder had approached silently; the heavy darkness had muffled the sound.
“Yes father. I’m sorry’.
The chief lifted a shard, it began to shine. Throwing it up into the air, it shot off at great speed, the others followed, back into the velvet night, illuminating once more the heavens.
Share A Million Stories for World Book Day
Folk can still sign up to be part of the Million Stories Event with prizes up for grabs. All reading for a minimum of 10 minutes counts towards a story share.
DON’T FORGET: 1 story share = the number of children who are listening, so if you are reading to a group of 30, that’s 30 story shares!
