A Short Story by Adam C.
One day, Giant Asian Hornets landed in the US on the West Coast. Nobody knew how they got there but they spread rapidly and were very deadly. The government jumped right in to try and kill these big insects. They decided to send some scientists to the hot spot in Washington and figure out a way to stop the spread. They had to do the testing in an apartment building or they would be surrounded by people.
While they were testing, one of the hornets broke out and stung all the scientists except one, Scientist B. B hid in the closet and he was super scared. He heard noises like glass breaking and plastic ripping. In his head he thought, “We had them so contained! How can one big hornet escape?” B cracked open the door and saw that the hornet broke the rest of the hornets out and knocked over the 10-times growth serum. All the hornets were as big as iguanas!
Jason and Jessica were new people moving into the apartment building. They just got engaged and they needed a place to stay. When they got to the apartment and stepped in, they saw something horrible. Everyone was dead! They started to run out, but then a huge 20 inch hornet came out of nowhere. They ran around the apartment and tried to hide. The hornet followed them and stung Jason. Jason started to die. The venom from the hornet was going through his veins. He felt like he was about to pass out and never wake up again. Then, B came to the rescue! B hit the hornet with a newspaper and dropped a spare brick on top of it. He then injected a serum to stop Jason from dying.
B, Jason, and Jessica thought they were safe. B told them to come down to the dark basement and showed them the lab. He instructed them to lock the door so no big bug could get in. They heard a big loud speaker from outside that said, “If you are still alive and you are in there, the government will get there in 24 hours to eliminate the hornets.” Hours went by. They shared their life stories as the night passed.
After 24 hours, the government arrived. They went into the apartment and killed the hornets. Then, they searched every single room to look for survivors. They found no one alive. When they reached the basement, they saw a big hole in the middle of the door. They found Jason, Jessica, and B, all… DEAD.
A short story by Mahdi K.
Bob the Builder was the greatest builder in the world. He could build anything. He created buildings, toys, robots, technology, and many other items. One day he was challenged to a builder’s battle. The stakes were high. The winner gets to keep the head of the loser. Bob was challenged by his rival, Sally.
Bob and Sally have constantly been competing with each other ever since they met in building school. The rules were: no sabotaging each other and you can build anything you want. Sally chose to build a jetpack. Bob chose to build a robot that could do homework, do chores, prepare meals, and do any other job. The time limit was 15 minutes. Bob and Sally worked furiously with great speed and effort. When it was coming down to the last minute things weren’t looking good for Bob. Sally was nearly done, but Bob needed more time.
Suddenly in the big group of spectators, two of Bob’s nephews, Richard and Auther sneak behind Sally and burped in her face. Sadly for Sally, she was on the last hammer stroke but instead of hitting her jetpack, she hit her hand because of the burp. This allowed Bob to finish his robot and win. At the end Bob didn’t take Sally’s head. Instead he made her stop building forever.
