Response 2: 5th November


Jack fought his way through the rubble and dust.

“Tommy I’ve found the perfect den, you’ve got to check this out!”

Tommy willingly ran across the mud clotted field to see what all the fuss was about. “Where are you Jack?  Tommy clambered through opening to follow the light shining from Jacks torch.

Finding the perfect spot amongst the rubble the boys set up their camp.” Let’s camp here for the night."

Mary gripped her dad’s hand, with a mixture of fear and excitement she felt at this time of year. Struggling to see as the crowd gathered her dad lifted Mary onto his shoulders. Mary looked around the crowd for her brother’s familiar face. “Dad, where’s Jack, I’ve not seen him all afternoon?”

The crowd cheered with elation as the bonfire was set up in smoke.

Screaming heard from the bonfire followed, as the night turned into a tragedy.
