Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 07 ‘Snolar Bear’

Day 07 another fun #OneHundredWords story this time about a ‘Snolar Bear’ a cross between a snowman and a polar bear by Rose English.

Happy Listening.

Snolar Bear

Bright whiteness filled the room, as I open my eyes, I am stunned to see the white snow-covered fields beyond my window.

I waste no time leaping from the bed, rushing to get ready and go outside to check that I’m not dreaming. Wrapped up warm I step into the white wonderland. I am going to make a snowman.

All starts well rolling snowballs round and round to form the body, then another for the head. Alas when I merge the two it looks nothing like a snowperson. I’ve created something unique a Snolar Bear.

Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 05 ‘Death of an Emperor’

Day 05 a sad #OneHundredWords story about a butterfly and although he is far from his loved ones, others in nature stay by his side so he will not be alone. ‘Death of an Emperor’ by Rose English.

Happy Listening.

Death of an Emperor

Three bees bow low in respect to the Emperor. He lay exhausted. Broken and dusty were his wings, the once bright colours muted with edges now tattered and torn. He had been blown off course by a great tempest, far away from his beloved Queen and children. Yet the bees would not leave him to die alone.

The wind calmed, and the Emperor took his last breath.  Aged wings closed for the last time. An army of ants came and carried him to the shade of the old oak, where he would rest eternally and become one with the earth.

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.

Happy Listening.

‘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.
