Brutal Blackout

Flying high up in the dark, misty sky, havoc causing bombs were flying around, causing fear in people’s lives. As the nauseating, sick people set off the bombs Jets and planes were dodging the life changing bombs. The sirens wailed out into the night sky. It was a complete black out.

Down in a tiny house a family of five were rushing about trying to gather everybody. “Get away from the window Jacob!” cried his Mum, as she dragged him away from the window. His brother Daniel came and scurried Jacob along out of the room. “Mother! Help! What’s happening?” Eliana screamed in horror from her bed. Sally came hurrying into Eliana’s room. She scooped her up into her arms shouting down to her Mother “Grab the boys’ now!”

They rushed, running for their lives, out of the house into the hut, which they used as a bomb shelter, just as Jacob reached the hut he turned around in a panic and started running back to the house. He headed straight towards the living room. “Jacob what are you doing? it’s not safe come on we need to get out of here!” Daniel belted as loud as he could to be heard over the bombs. Jacob reached for a picture of his dad, he just managed before the deafening explosion. The house started to crumble to pieces, Daniel grabbed Jacob’s hand and pulled him out of the house and to safety. “Jacob why are you so selfish? You could have got us killed! You always think about yourself, for once just do as your told,” Daniel cried.

Ashamed, Jacob looked down at his picture, it was covered in pieces of broken glass. Jacob felt like he had never felt before, he felt guilty like it was all his fault. Shockingly, the blitz was still going on. The family of five were now cold, hungry, petrified and worried about how they will get themselves out of this mess…

There’s only one question. Are they safe enough?

Merciless, relentless and frightening, the bombers flew across the dark, smoky sky, as the horrified citizens run for their lives. As the violent , inhumane soldiers drop their highly sensitive bombs on the streets of London, a young boy, who is in a grey jumper and pale shorts, is standing and staring out of the crooked window. “No Peter! ” screeched his protective and worried mum. “Edward! Lucy! Susan!” she shouted as a tall teenage boy hurried down the stairs checking where his siblings were.  “Mum where’s Susan and Lucy?” Edward screamed in a trembling voice. “Mummy!” a high pitched screech came from upstairs.

As Peter and Edward were waiting with Lucy downstairs, mum ran as fast as she could up the wooden staircase finding Susan in the next room shaking with fear.  “Come on sweetie!” The family sprinted out of the front door and rushed towards their bombproof shelter. “Oh no! Dad’s picture!” Peter cried as he sped rapidly back to the house. “Peter!” Edward shouted angrily.”Got it!” Peter panted. Edward finally caught up with him and grabbed hold of his arm and dragged him to the door. Suddenly a  powerful bomb dropped in their dark front garden and the two boys then collapsed on to their comfortable sofa. “We need to go now!”Edward shouted in Peter’s ear. Then they both raced out of the half destroyed house.

“Come on! Come on!” Mum screeched to the boys. They could hear bombs banging and their mother screaming from the metal shelter. Finally, they reached the shelter. “What were you doing? You could of got us killed!” “Enough! It is almost over”

Or is it?

The Bombing World War ll

Frightening, terrified and horrid, the dark black jets fly through the sky over all the bombing and explosions. Meanwhile, Tommy was watching the furious explosions. His older brother Max shouted to him “Tommy come down hear now!” Tommy rushed down and grabbed his precious things.

Mum told Tommy and Max to quickly go and get their younger sisters Ariana and Esme. “AAaaaaaaaaa!!!” Esme screamed as everyone ran upstairs including Ariana. They grabbed the girls and ran outside as quick as they can into the shelter. Tommy ran back inside with no explanation.Awfully he went to get his dads picture and a big bad explosion happened.Max went after him and grabbed his arm and ran back to the shelter.” What were you thinking?”shouted Max. “Get in ,quick.” Mum whispered. The two boys jumped in and mum shut the door and they couldn’t come out until the bombing ended.

 

Woeful World War

Confidently the nauseating pilots of the horrific planes soared frantically through the sky dropping heavy, colossal bombs onto the helpless streets of London. The emotional, intense boy stared through the glass window at the never-ending nightmare. Bombs dropped, people screamed and fire burned right before his eyes. “Ethan!” his mum yelled “Ethan! Get away from that ancient window, gather your siblings and get in the bomb shelter. We have no time to lose!”

As quick as lightening, Ethan shot up the stairs quietly and grabbed his sisters, Mia and Lacey and brother Riley. As they went down the stairs carelessly another bomb dropped in their tiny front garden. “Quick get in the shelter” Ethan shouted. They could smell smoke coming in through the cracked windows.

Slowly,as a few of the planes flew to the ground dodging bullets,as the sirens cried out as a warning people rushed to their shelters, Ethan ran back to the half-crushed house to get the photograph of his father who was fighting in the war. Ethan was reaching out for the picture when… BOOM! A bomb had dropped and all of the ornaments had smashed bringing the photograph with them. The dusty, fragile photograph had smashed”Noooooo” Ethan squealed as he grabbed the photo and went back  to the shelter.

“What did you think you were doing?, you could have been killed! Ridiculous boy!” BANG…

 

WW2

 

One terrifying blurred out night, there was a ww2 bombing in an innocent and fearful city. The plane pilots flew straight through the black, misty sky.

A family’s minute and endangered house stood there with its capacity of five people. The where called: Edward, Peter, Lucy, Susan and their mum (the mum’s name remains unknown.) They could all hear the atomic bombs dropping down on the novel city.

Edward (peering out of the window) saw the enemy planes. Lucy could hear bombing in the air and screaming on the patented flooring. Mum could smell the horrid, disgusting and outrageous smoke slithering threw the ancient house and on the misty, minefield streets. Peter (the eldest sibling) felt all the glass pieces shatter against his tender skin. Susan could touch the furious fire sucking closer and closer to her poor fingers.

Running for their lives, the family scattered towards the safe Anderson Shelter and fortunately made it there. When they got in their hearts were racing faster than a cheetah chasing its prey. They all gathered and hugged each other like there was no tomorrow.

💣 The Bombing 💣

The sky was very dim but very quiet… Out of nowhere you could hear loud bangs from planes shooting bullets and getting ready to drop a bomb. There were sirens going off, lights shooting into the sky and fires in yards… It was petrifying.

Caden stared through the window. Wide eyed, he felt tearful. Suddenly mum gripped his shoulder blade and pulled him away from the dusty window. “What do you think you’re doing Caden?!” Yelled mum. Before he could answer she pushed him through the doors and pulled Xavier into her arms and rushed them both out then cried for Lexi and Nellie to come down stairs. Mum held their arms tightly making marks on their skin from her nails.

They ran out of the small, wooden cottage with Lexi screaming tearfully. As they ran crying into the basement, Caden turned back shouting “Wait – Dad!” and ran into the house as Xavier tried to catch him. Caden grabbed onto the picture of dad then Xavier pulled him back with all his force, Caden suddenly dropped the picture and it shattered into small shards. Quickly, Caden then took the remains of the picture heading for the door then a bomb hit the side of the house. Bricks flew across the room crashing down on the floor making the house dusty. They managed to get back to the basement.

Then Caden collapsed onto the floor. “You’re so selfish, how could you run back like that!?” Shouted Xavier roaring with rage. “Xavier! Don’t yell at your brother like that!” Cried mum, pulling him backwards with a frown on her face. Xavier just sat down crossing his arms grumpily…
