Good Luck, and remember to post your stories here!

Julia has posted a picture for the current challenge.
Click here to see the prompt.

The sky was full of clouds making shadows on the water, hanging like benign whispers of summer.
It was the first day of the summer holidays. I was fifteen, away from home without my parents for the first time, staying with my aunt and cousins in their caravan.
I was looking forward to getting a tan and learning to windsurf.
But first there was ice cream to eat, and walks along the prom with my cousin Amy, giggling at the recycling bins lined up like so many aliens. And the prospect of six weeks of freedom ahead of us.

My story is set in the seaside , on the scene I see recycling bins spying on me. it was my third day on holiday with my friends …..

The recycling bins were lined up spying on me ,the sky’s were dark and gloomy the shadows of the clouds made everything look mysterious And everything was quiet …
As we walked around we got lost.. And ended up in the fair it was empty…. So we went on the rides thinking it was fun but…it wasn’t…we were all terrified… In the corner of my eye in could see the recycling bins peering from the corner of the road

The sky reminds me of a happy feeling; a happy place. It’s peaceful, calm, but also unlimited, if you like. When you look up at the sky at night time and you see the moon, the stars, you get that kind of overwhelmed feeling. (more…)

Out of the blue and into the red. They said it would be better here- this department, this uniform, this colour. Personally I preferred the blue but a promotion is nice. In the blue department we controlled the skies and water. I’ve had to leave all my friends behind. (more…)

I am in need, and I will be glad if you can help me. I am 14 years old and I love writing stories.

I’m writing a story but there is one problem. I don’t know how to set it.

I wrote many versions of this story but I just don’t know which one is the best version. Will you tell me which one you like the best and tell me what you like about it in the comment section below?

Version 1:

He charged at her, choking her against the oak tree, “What did you do?!” he yelled at Rebekah, making her shake with fear.

“I spent a thousand years running brother!” she cried, “And now Niklaus is gone. I can’t do it without him…” his baby sister broke down, sobbing her heart out. Elijah softened and tears formed in his dark brown eyes, he couldn’t take it, seeing his only sister in pain. He let her go and threw his arms around her body; his left arm cradling her head and his other arm wrapping her waist.

Version 2:
“Rebekah!” I yelled, slamming my younger sister against an oak tree. Fury was building inside of me.
How can she do such thing? Hurting an innocent for her own needs.“You had no right killing her, she did nothing!”
“I don’t want to run anymore Elijah, I’ve spent all my life running!” Rebekah spat, tears forming in her sea blue eyes.
“You were only going to run for a mortals life time Rebekah. That is nothing when you lived for a thousand years.” I stated, anger filling my tone.
The look on Rebekah’s face had no hint of shame shown at all. She had no regret in taking away the life of the girl who gave sacrificed everything for her family’s safety.
