With our map in hand, we walked away from the train station into the dark street, and using a torch we followed the vague directions we had been given.
The distant hum grew louder and the street became lighter as we got closer to our destination.
We walked around the next corner and as I turned my head the world spun at the sight of the neon lighting that the buildings were covered in.
It was everywhere we looked. Akihabara felt and looked as though it was alive.
Gaming shops here we come for the shopping experience of a lifetime!
I wake up barely able to move.
“Help!” I scream, “somebody help me, PLEASE!”
I get up. It’s freezing. I take a step. The pins and needles are getting worse each time I step, then I hear a rustle in the bush. “Who’s there?” I say. I heard them before I saw them. They were wearing a blue shirt, black tights and a beanie. They come out. It’s a girl. She looks about the same age as me.
“Are you lost?” I say. They look at me – they have black eyes. “Oh god!” I start to run.
I heard them before I saw them, the Nazis. I quickly ran and hid in a slimy drain.
All I heard was footsteps. I peeped out of the drain but it wasn’t just Nazis, there were other people, Jews – just like me.
They were just shuffling down the road, the Nazis were whipping people. A man fell down and didn’t get up – a Nazi shot him! I felt like running up to the soldier and whacking him with a stick, then I realised that the person who shot the man was a kid!
I ran as fast as I could.
My friend Jane and I were in the woods. I heard them before I saw them. Suddenly there standing in front of us, a whole pride of lions.
“What do we do?” I whisper to Jane.
“Don’t RUN!” Jane replied.
I run off. “No! I said don’t run.” Jane shouted.
By then all the lions were chasing her.
“WHAT DO I DO NOW?” I shout out, but by then they had taken me to the ground. Jane fell down and started crying. Then she began to laugh, looking up, and there they were, the lions licking her.
It was extraordinary.
“The Nazis are coming!” I hear them shout. I crawl out of my hiding space to see what is happening.
“There,” I mumble to myself. I hear them before I see them, then, in the distance, I sight the Nazis.
“Where are they going?” I think.
I start following them to see, but someone turns around and sees me. I start running as he starts shooting.
“There they are!” I shout. I crouch down but he’s still coming for me.
“Why me?” I shout to him. There’s no answer, so I keep running.
This is the end – it has come.
I’m just about to leave the room when I heard this, then turned to look.
“Did you see her face? It was hilarious!”
“Let’s do it to that nerdy girl, I’m sure she will enjoy it.”
And that was the last time I saw them that day. I know what you’re thinking, why didn’t I go to them?
Well the thing is, they were outside the door. So as you can see I heard them before I saw them.
The next day they were in for a treat – their plan was about to backfire on them, they had no idea…
Waiting on a platform, surrounded by people, I heard them before I saw them.
On my face I could feel the wind of the approaching train and my excitement grew about my adventure. I was so thrilled, my wheelchair shook which made people look and smile. I had been saving for this trip for ages and could hardly believe I was here.
The train rushed quietly into the station and stopped at the platform. We were pushed along with the crowd into the train, the doors closed and we were off to Mt Fuji at the speed of a bullet.
While I was sitting in my plane seat, my stomach started to ache with some pain because I was getting hungry. As it did so, I heard them before I saw them, and at that moment I realised that the food trolley was about to come past me.
From what I saw the food looked delicious – there were biscuits, fruit and drink.
Because the food trolley always starts at the front, the yummy food would nearly be gone. But when they were two rows in front of me, there was still plenty food left.
I was quite relieved about that!
It’s the thirty seventh day and I barely escaped that zombie mob. Still no sign of survivors. I’ll need to head out tomorrow to find some more .
It gets dark and I head to bed. Its really hard to sleep when a mob of zombies comes by your house.
What’s that noise? Is someone inside the house? I think its coming from the kitchen.
I walk closer with my pistol ready. I see two girls.
“Hands up!” I shout.
“ How did you know I was here?” she asked.
I heard them before I saw them, so they were just dumb.
I opened my eyes after my mum woke me. Then she spoke softly.
“Come on Moonlight.”
Then I realise, Chase my brother and I are allowed to explore
“Come on slowpoke,” roars Chase.
I sprint after him. We walk through the forest, then we stop, terrified.
I heard them before I saw them.
Poachers and their boots crunching the leaves under them. They see us, Chase and I turn and run to the den as fast as we can, the poachers chasing us.
Our parents are in the den.
Chase and I slide in as the poachers disappear.
