#2-“Double Wobbly” story

The “Double Wobbly” Story

Here’s the beginning of the story I wrote called “The Legend of Double Wobbly.”

Twilight had come down fast, darkening the steep roadway. I skated over the top of Ichabod Hill and rolled downward, picking up speed. I could hear dogs in faraway backyards barking and howling at the setting sun. Carving a tight line down the curving road, I shot downhill faster and faster, rapidly approaching the dangerous twists of Double Wobbly. Suddenly a wave of bad feeling came over me. It wasn’t fear exactly…more of a strange, demented sadness. I could not continue. I dug in, grinding my board to a stop.

Just at that moment the distant dogs went silent, and a nearby rasp of wheels on pavement caught my ear. I looked uphill. There, concealed in a shadow cast by a dark cloud, a towering figure stood on a glowing skateboard.

My hair rose in terror. Was it the demon of Double Wobbly? Could I outrace this evil? I was fast on my board…but was I fast enough?

At that moment the cloud moved away, and I could see my pursuer.

My heart went cold. The dude on the skateboard had no head!

  1. Ahead of me was a canyon.”Its my only chance”I thought and picked up speed.That dude is a couple meters behind me.I pull out a mega jump over the canyon.The dude follows but hit a rock just before the canyon and plunges into the darkness of the canyon.”I survived,”I thought,”I survived. Is this good enough?

  2. Please reply if you think my stories great. Sorry if I bothered you! I love your books and someday I want to be an author too, so please respond if you think the ending to this story is good. I’m only saying this because when I submitted my ending to the story I forgot to hit “replies to my comments” and I don’t know how to change that. I really really really really don’t mean to bother you. Your awesome! Bye!

  3. I raced down the road panicking. My heart was beating faster and faster. The dog sounds were getting louder and louder. I had no idea how long this would go on. Suddenly a huge wall stood in my way. I hadn’t noticed it because I was too scared the headless man was going to catch me. My board wouldn’t stop. It was like the headless skateboarder was controlling my skateboard, or not letting me stop. I tried to think of what to do. Finally it hit me, I had to jump. I leaped high into the foggy dark sky and landed in a bush. I watched as my favorite skateboard and the monster collided into the wall. I knew it was the end. I walked home with only a few bumps and bruises. At least it was all over.

  4. I ran into a house. There was a kid playing Minecraft on the Xbox 360 with “LibraryWarrior1″ and “LibraryWarrior2″. The kid’s name was Kelly. She invited me in. Then the headless horseman skater ran in. He ran and destroyed the TV. He walked out and said,”I’m sorry! Bye now!” So I became friends with Kelly and we played Minecraft together.

    THE END

  5. I raced home with him only feet behind me I reach my house just in time. later that night … lightning flashed it was the dude with no head ! Every thing went black…
