    Now it was time to fight.Both our spells shot at each other.Spells were thrown.I knew the spell of memories will defeat evil. I read ” soso memory redo.Kileraz became weak and died.We had finally caught the gem.😁

  3. As the girl jumped off the stepping stones she saw red eyes staring deeply at her. She was terrified at what came at her. It was a goblin. It gave her some magic mushrooms. She could run at 100 miles per hour now and she thanked the goblin by giving him some healing powers so now he could heal people and they became friends.

    Task 2:
    The cave was burning hot: it was the lava that caused this tremendous heat.
    Task 3:
    Darkness suffocated the cave.
    Orange lava flooded the ground.
    Carefully the girl and her companion stepped across the stepping stones.

    • This is my story.
      After a lot of walking, Bella and her companion (that was her mom in the form of a black cat) entered the Cave of Doom. Inside the massive underground cave, it was dark and gloomy, and it was filled with steaming lava, which gave out the only light and a lot of heat. In front of them was a river of boiling hot lava and the only way to get through was to cross the stepping stones that went through it. Cautiously, the brave girl and her companion cat jumped energetically across the fragile stepping stones.
      Suddenly, Bella saw the yellow eyes that glowed in the dark. Black furry creatures scuttled around her. One of them came closer.
      “Hello”, he said, “Girls, you look hungry, why not try our homemade vegetable soup?”
      “Who are you and why are you in the Cave of Doom?” asked the girl confused.
      “That’s how you call it,” answered the cat “We call it the cosy cave. We come here every year in autumn and winter, with the food we collected in summer and spring. We use the heat coming out from the lava to cook our food.”
      Bella was hungry and insisted on trying out the soup. “Would you like some mom?”, Bella asked politely. The cat nodded. After a minute, Bella had devoured the soup. She thanked her new friends for the delicious meal and carried on to her journey.
