Creative Writing

For homeschool we are given prompts, every time we work on  our unit studies, so that we can have some english while we write a short story. This is one of my favorites that I have written so far, and I wanted to share it with you.  

 

Prompt

You go to a shop on the beach and buy a golden shell, when you clean it off a genie comes out. He tells you that you have three wishes but the wishes have to benefit someone other than yourself. What will you wish for and why?

 

Writing piece

Hey guys, welcome back to my channel. I just got back from vacation and couldn’t wait to tell you all about it. The beach we went to had golden colored sand and crystal blue waters, it was beautiful. Though before we left my parents took me to a little shop on the beach and said I could have one thing to remember the trip by. There were some really funny shirts and cool stickers but when I saw a golden shell covered in sand and I knew it was what I wanted. After we got back to the hotel, I went straight to the bathroom to clean up my shell. When I started to rub the sand and dust off, a cloud of smoke appeared and within the ball of smoke was a genie. As the smoke began to clear I could then tell what this genie looked like. He was a sun set shade of orange with crystal blue beads on his necklace. The first thing he said was “hello”. Of course I was taken aback by the whole thing so I could only mutter a “hey”. The genie chuckled and told me I had three wishes that he would grant. Though these wishes had a twist, my wishes had to benefit someone other than myself. It didn’t take long for me to pick my wishes. This was because for a reason some may think is weird, I had thought about it before. POWER OF ATTRACTION!

My first wish had been for there to be no poverty. I chose this wish because without poverty there would be more people who are able to get good educations to help the world and the people on it.

For my second wish I wished for everyone to do something about cleaning up the earth. This is because if I was just to wish for all the landfills to disappear or for there to be no trash in the ocean, that wouldn’t fix the problem.

Using my last wish I wished for world peace. This was for the obvious reasons.

After I had used all my wishes I apologised to the poor genie for I had not set him free. I tried to reassure him that now with the world fixing itself, hopefully the next one who holds the shell will set him free.

And that viewers is what happened on my vacation and how world became more beautiful than yesterday. For those of you who may not believe my story, just make sure that when you go to a beach with golden sands and crystal blue waters that you look for a golden shell, then just ask the genie yourself.

The end
