100 word challenge: Bronze legs

I think that native tribesmen came and made these legs. They must have worked all day and all night to bring the bronze back and forth between their village and the giant legs. They made the legs because they wanted to have something to pray to. It must have been the god of long legs. That particular trib must have a connection with the god of long legs. Every night they would dance around the legs and then at the end they would pray, then go back to the village. The legs have been there ever since.

We celebrate Anzac day on the day of a battle of world war 1. This kid called Anzac had a great great grandfather who fought in that battle. The kid and his family parade down the streets on Anzac day, with the medals of their grandfather pinned to their shirts.

100 word challenge

I  saw  Messi dribbling down the field, with Ronaldo hot on his heels. And although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress. Messi kept getting blocked by the Real Madrid defence. He tried to pass to Suarez, but it quickly got intercepted by the defence. Real Madrid scored a goal on the counter-attack, so now they were tied; 2-2. Then in the final seconds, Ronaldo tripped Messi in the box and it was a penalty. Everyone in the stadium held their breath as Messi ran in for the shot. The crowd went wild as Messi hit the winning goal for Barcelona…

This book is about a girl who has a clubfoot. Her mum doesn’t want to fix the clubfoot because she never wanted children and she hates the girl. Then, when London seems like it is about to be bombed, the girl & her brother move into the countryside. They move in with a lady in her mid-thirties who doesn’t really want them. This lady has a pony and the girl plays with the horse called butter every day. It is a little boring because nothing much happens in the country. Then the girl starts asking the lady to fix her leg, but the lady says they have to get her mums permission before they do anything. Nothing really happened in the rest of the story. London isn’t bombed, so some of the refugees move back to London. And so far, everything is peaceful in the countryside.
