The Legend of Hodsock

Once upon a time lived a tree called Elm. There were a rich family, who lived in a colossal house, explored a forest. They had a little sister called Emma. She went up to this tree and touched it. She felt really dizzy and then…she vanished.

“Hahahaha” shouted Elm. Her Mum and Dad ran around the magnificent forest to find Emma. Sadly, her mum touched the tree and disappeared. The tree stopped shining and her dad saw blood on the tree and he ran. Dad ran back to the tree and recognised that the blood was gone. He heard footsteps. He felt a warm, soggy hand on his woolly coat. He ran with a fright. Dad saw the tree speak to this man in the forest.

“Hey you there” shouted Dad. He saw the tree and disappeared. He saw a note and it said “Help me!”… but the other side was gone.

“Dad” shouted a familiar voice.

“Emma my sweetie is that you”shouted Dad

“Yes dad” screamed Emma. Later, Dad ran to Emma and saw she had a squirrel in her hand.

“Can we keep it?” said Emma. Emma was happy to have a pet. She was scared about mum.

“Where’s Mum” cried Emma.

“I don’t know” said Dad

The Legend of Trevor the Spirit…

Once upon a time there was a spirit called Trevor and he was the spirit of a willow tree…Let me tell you his story.

Trevor was a young boy who was born sick he had to eat a magical willow leaf but if he didn’t he would die, but if he ate it he would start to fade after the last leaf fell off of that very same tree. His family finally decided to take a  risk and go for it. When the boy turned 12 years old he saw a beautiful girl, who was the same age as him, and he’s told behind a tree watching her for hours on end.

Finally, feeling a little bashful, went up to her and couldn’t really speak. “H…hi um I…I’m T….T…Trevor.. W..w..what’s your n…n…name?” After he could finally get his words out he smiled awkwardly and didn’t know what to do.

“Hi I’m Alyssa, nice to meet you Trevor!” She replied, holding her hand out to shake his, “Nice to meet you too, Alyssa,” he said feeling more confident and shaking her hand excitedly. “Her uh it’s a nice day do you want to go for a walk in the woods with me.” She asked turning to go deeper into the woods. “Uhh yeah sure, why not?” He said, wait for her to turn so he could start going a little hyper…. So, off they went into the woods talking about interesting things about themselves. Alyssa told her parents about her and they didn’t like the sound of her taking to him but she found time to sneak out and knock on his door to ask him if he wants to hang out again.

Years past and they fell in love and got married, but little did they know that’s only three leafs were left on the willow tree. In two days time Trevor started to fade and in ten minutes he was gone “Trevor no please no,” screamed Alyssa when she found out and started to cry……. Then a spirit crept up behind her and said ” Alyssa, it’s me.” She turned round wiping tears from her eyes

“Trevor?” …

The Legend Of Hodsock

Once upon a time there was a wealthy family that lived in a massive house in Hodsock. The Edwards family were very protective with each over and especially since the plague had started. One day the parents of the child died because they caught the plague. In hope that she would hear her parents voices again, Lilly planted them in their back garden under her favourite tree. Every day in school and after school she would cry. Everyone that was around her got worried and were trying to cheer her up as much as possible.

Miserably, Lilly walked over to where she had buried her parents and noticed something strange. The trees looked like her parents. A large amount like their parents. They had eyes one big and round and the other one had thin eyes like her dad, they had small smiles round, button noses.

“Something smells fishy round here!” whispered Lilly to herself. Then she stared deep into the tree. “It’s the fish pond sweetie” the left tree giggled it sounded exactly like her mother. “Run honey before the plague catches you too. Run. Run as fast as your timid legs carry you. Run far far away. Listen to me you have got to go, promise me?” The right tree warned. No words came out of Lilly’s mouth. She froze on the spot. She thought she was dreaming, she wanted to go inside and get away from these trees but it felt like her feet had melted into the ground, she couldn’t move.

Slowly she sank to the floor and started crying, then coughing out blood she started sobbing and screaming. Suddenly, she felt like she had a massive space missing where her stomach was supposed to be. Just then she felt like she was floating, everything was spinning. Which way was the sky? She didn’t know then with a loud thud she hit the floor.

“Keep it together get up Lilly” she mumbled in pain to herself. Finally she got up and saw her mum and dad but they looked like a ghost. “We warned you. We told you to run nut you didn’t listen look at you now” they whispered ashamed. “I’m sorry! I should of listened. Help me please! I love you!” she screamed then she fell back on the ground and shut her eyelids. Unfortunately, it was too late sports someone to help… She was dead.

The Legend Of Hodsock

Once, long long ago, lived a old tree. This tree was gnarled and ancient. The tree grew in Hodsock in a colossal home and an elegant garden. The tree was called Holly. In the massive mansion lived a kind, rich family and in the family there were 3 children. This is the story of the middle child, Hope. She would play in the forest alone, sometimes she even saw strangers. She liked to go near them but they never talked to her as they didn’t know her. However, one day she wondered near Holly and saw a strange, old man. The man called her over and asked her name. “I’m Hope” she replied ” Who are you?” He was filthy and dark. Slowly, the child walked to Holly as the man commanded. She touched the tree. Suddenly, she heard a horrid, evil laugh. She saw white, then couldn’t move. She couldn’t talk. She was the tree. Legend has it, Hope still rests in Hodsock waiting to be freed from the dark bark and dusty wood she was caged in, but only if someone touches her.
