Writing Sample

“Go to the Principals office” Miss Sally yelled as she pointed her finger to Christian as he  wasn’t focused on school work. Staunching angrily outside the classroom he was aware of a strange awkward whisper that had echoed through his ears. Taking a quick look back he couldn’t see anyone there. “Aye thats strange” he thought in his mind as he was destinate to find where it came from.

Feeling so anxious of trying to figure out where that whisper had come from he knew he would be in a lot of trouble if he didn’t go to the office. So he told Miss Sally and the class but they wouldn’t believe him they thought he was lying like he always does. But Christians friend Aidan believed him so they made up a plan to try find where that whisper came from.

Christians friend Aidan was gonna distract the principal while Christian tries to find where the whisper came from. He searched everywhere but there were no sounds of the whisper. Almost getting tired of searching he thought to himself “if I heard the strange whisper near my class its gotta be near there”. Arriving back at his classroom door he heard it the second time he was fortunate to figure where it was.

Searching around his classroom bay he was getting frustrated where it was coming from. “Could it be the birds” he thought as he kept searching where it was.
Taking another step in his classroom bay he could hear the screaming wind echoing straight through his ear drums as he was aware of the same particular sound. “It was the wind that whole time” he said as he rushed off to the principal office to spread the news to his friend Aidan.
