Mr. Bale

"Should I push the yellow button?" Mr. Bale asked himself.   He wondered and wondered and decided to push it .The house started to shake and Mr. Bale flew back at the wall. He broke his right rib. What the heck is going on with the house Mr. Bale asked himself?

The house landed hard, Mr. Bale stood up and looked outside through the window and saw he just landed on the moon. He went down stairs and saw a space suit laid out on the ground. He put it on and opened the door and slowly walked out. It was hard to breathe.   He looked at his air tank and saw it was on empty and hurried inside.  He was so scared he just wanted to go back to earth so he pushed the button.

The house started to rumble and took off like a bullet. He’s going back to earth. The house landed hard. Mr. Bale stood up with pain and looked outside. People stood outside and looked right at him.

Just Dessert- Harris Burdick Stories Quick Write

A woman named Erica was at a farm one day looking for a pumpkin for her dessert, her favorite, pumpkin pie!  All the sudden her foot hit a huge pumpkin and she exclaimed, "the bigger the pumpkin the bigger the pie".  Erica picked it up and put it in her wagon.  On her way home the horse hooves made a beat and she whistled to the beat.  All the sudden her wheel hit a big stone she looked at it.  It did not move one bit.  She made it home and went inside with the pumpkin.  Then she prepared for her dessert.  She put the the pumpkin on the table.  She grabbed her knife.  The pumpkin started to glow when she lowered the knife and it got brighter.  She cut open the top she took out a glowing see-through ball. 
 It was a universe!

The day before...

     "I'm warning you," croaked Mr. Linden. "The book has been acting very strange. The last 3 owners died while they had it." Mary thought that Mr. Linden was trying to creep her out. She snatched the book out of his hands, checked it out, and skipped out of Jocksenville's public library, Mr. Linden's Library. All the books in his library were magical. They were ordinary books you could find at ordinary libraries except what happened in the book would really happen. Mary had chosen the newest book, 'Jumanji,' by Chris Van Alsburg. She loved to read, especially books she hadn't read.
     "But mom!"stammered Mary. "I wanna read it!" "Not until you finish your chores, young lady!" replied her mom. "Hmmphh!"complained Mary. She cleaned the toilet. scrubbed the sink, and washed the bathtub. By dinnertime, she was finished. "I've finished my chores", said Mary.  She picked at her dinner, devoured her dessert, got ready for bed, and finally started to read. She fell asleep and the book lay open.

Mr. Linden had warned her but she didn't listen.Now, this might be the last she'd see in her life.By morning, she was dead. The book had killed it's next victim.

     Jannya Gornor was walking through the library looking for a scary book.  She found this scary book called 'The Cong0.'  But, before she could grab it, Mr. Linden walked up to her.  He grabbed the book from the shelf and warned Jannya,"You may not want this book!  It's quite scary for a little girl like you!"  "Shut up," she yelled, irritated that he thought of her like a little girl.  "Shh," everyone hushed, turning back to their books.
     But, stubborn Jannya checked it out anyways.  When she arrived at home, Jannya did the usual boring homework and stupid chores.  She started to read her book, 'The Congo', and after stopping at a really good part, she started to slumber.
     She left the book open, to the part about the forest, and started to snore.  (She sounded like a donkey when she snored.)  All of a sudden, darkish green vines started to grow bigger and bigger.  They slowly came out of the book, crawling over Jannya.  A few minutes later, they choked her to death.  The book never returned to the library.
