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.
