The Horrifying Eruption
“When is Volcano Vesuvius erupting?” Mary asked her sister, Olivia.
It was 24th August, AD79, noon. Mary and Olivia were on the way back home after visiting the Library.
“I don’t know, “ shrugged Olivia, “and who cares!
The two sisters skipped down the street, humming a tune.
“I am really hungry!” moaned Mary.
But just before Olivia answered her, there came a loud BOOOOOOM!!! The two girl were frozen with fear.
“What happened?” cried Olivia.
The girls turned their heads. They were shocked.
“The volcano is erupting! Quick! Run, run!!!” shouted Mary.
The houses was collapsing. Animals in the stables were yelling.
Mary and Olivia were running back to their home. They grabbed their mum and dad and ran out the house.
“We’ve got to run!” explained Olivia to her mum and dad. “Volcano Vesuvius is erupting!”
“Mom, dad, quick, run!” Mary shouted.
Ashes were coming to them. Mary was crying. Olivia was choking. Mum was worried. Dad was holding their hands and pulled them to run.
Luckily, they ran very far from the volcano so they survived.
“Phew……” sighed the family.
“We lost our home and my doll!” Mary wept.
“tonight, we will camp here,” suggested dad.
And the day was over. What a frightening day!
Mount Vesuvius Eruption
“Run for your life!”
Steak was going to the Villa at noon, on AD79, August 24th. Because it was summer, it was burning hot. He was riding on his horse along the cobblestoned road. He could smell some delicious cheese on bread and he could touch his horses hard back. But then, his horse froze with an uneasy feeling. Steak was mad, so he dragged the horse to the Villa.
When they were almost there.... BOOM! The volcano erupted! Steak was frozen with fear. He saw some stones coming out of the volcano. He was scared because the rocks were burning hot. He heard another explosion, so he and his horse bolted out of the town.
Now he was safe, but with no money and no food. Steak was thinking, “My money!” and the horse was thinking, “My favorite lunch!”
When he went back to Pompeii after one year, Steak thought, “I could get my things back now!” but he was shocked. There were nothing but ash and rocks, “Wow! A volcanic explosion is scarier than I thought!”
Mount Vesuvius Erupted!
The terror started!
Clone, Yoda and their dog, Jedi, were visiting Pompeii at noon on August 24th, 79 A.D. They were walking to their hotel with happiness.
Suddenly the ground was shaking. Mount Vesuvius was erupting! They were scared and they tried to run but their legs were already stuck on the ground. When everybody was passing them, someone kicked them loose so they got saved.
As they were running to Venice they turned around, and saw no Jedi. They tried to find him, and suddenly they heard a sound which they followed. When the sound stopped, they looked around, and under the table there was Jedi! They took Jedi and ran to Venice as quickly as they could!
What a terrifying day!
The ground started shaking. The sky filled with ash and smoke.
“Wait a minute” said Sophie, “Vesuvius isn’t a mountain. It’s a VOLCANO!”
“Run!” yelled Sam, Sophie’s older brother.
They started running, but Sophie remembered something.
“Sarah!” she shouted as she dashed to the orphanage.
“Sophie!” Sam called into the dark, grey sky. Then he saw a strange figure coming towards him. It was Sophie, holding Sarah. Suddenly, hot, red lava started coming out of the volcano!
“Jump into the water!” shouted Sam.
They both dived into the water and swam to the nearest safe place they could find. It was especially hard for Sophie because she had to carry Sarah but they all survived!
