The Astonishing Stranger… by Callum


Amazed and astonished, bewailed and perplexed, I turned around as Atrus strolled into the dim study. “Hello my dear friend,” declared Atrus when he meandered over to me. “This is my journal, I prevented this diary from being given to anybody else but you so take care,” explained Atrus. “I’ll go and get the key now,” he wandered off.

Whoosh! Unexpectedly, a ragged figure appeared out of nowhere! I was petrified! AAAhh! He threw a highly flammable stone against the intricately-patterned curtains and grabbed the Releeshahn book. Crackle! Crackle! The curtains set aflame. “Releeshahn!” yelled Atrus as the shadowy figure evaporated into thin air. “NO!”

If I had reacted quicker, I thought, if I wasn’t so alarmed I maybe would have caught him. Shocked and confused, shaking and horrified, Atrus suddenly froze: he stared at the book that had been left behind. Should I hop in the book or not …?

    A good piece of writing Callum , I like that you used a two paired sentence and that instead of said you used declared.

    wish: You could use some level five punctuation such as… – ( ) : ; 🙂
