“Are you scared of the dark?”... because I am. Some people think it is funny but everyone is scared of something.
We played spotlight on the last night of camp. Before we went outside I was scared frozen. When Kiri and Fiona said “be quiet” all I thought of was I'm going to fall over and hurt myself. But do you know what, I did not even hurt myself one bit.
Kiri said “go”. I thought to myself where should I hide.? I looked around I ran to where a tall tall tree was, then I ran behind a plastic chair, and l just got there in time .
All I could hear was spotlight, spotlight ,spotlight, over and over again. I ran to a wooden table, spotlight got called I asked “me?” and Bronte’s dad said “yes you”. I ran back to the start .
And I did it all again over and over again. At the end of the game there was so much blood it made me want to barf. When we went back to our rooms Ruby and I started to laugh, that is how fun it was. I wish that you were there .
For this piece of writing I have used
a hyperbole. My hyperbole was “at the end of the game there was so much blood it made me want to barf”. I used a strong verb, instead of using “I was cold”, I used “before we came outside I was scared frozen.”
