This week we deliver into colour. The prompt is:
… the orange one spoke first…
Things to think about:
- What is the orange one’?
- Does it matter that it went first?
- Does the colour make a difference?
We have 5 words that all need to be in the post. They can be in any order but they ALL must be there. They are:
… BALLOON NEVER KICKED FRIGHTENING BROWN…
This week we have a question for the prompt. It is:
‘… but where did it go?’ she shouted…
Our prompt for the next week is one that asks about carrying. It is:
… but it was heavier than I expected…
Things to consider:
- What is IT?
- How heavy did you imagine it was going to be?
- Why does the weight matter?
I can see that you have nearly completed a blog today, ready to publish tonight, and I will be very excited to read it but I just wanted remind you that I am not allowed to check the blog at home during the lockdown anymore. Tomorrow, I cover Mr Leftwich on his PPA time. This means that I won’t be able to read and comment on your writing until the end of the day tomorrow – I haven’t forgotten you!
However, I am hoping that I will be able to keep the blog up and running during the half term holiday.
It was after the fight and Olly had just realised what he’d done.
“I’m sorry, brother. I had no choice..” Olivia sniffed.
“No, no. Don’t apologise-I should. That hammer attack was divine; you put everything in it-enough power to awaken me from that dark dream. Please, Olivia. I have one request before I leave, though. Please fold my paper into the very last crane.” Olly sighed, letting his paper unfold and he laid there, one sheet of purple paper.
“Brother!!” Olivia sobbed.
Luigi and the Origami Craftsman burst through the window. “Why are all these cranes here? Is one of you doing the forbidden 1000 cranes technique?” The craftsman exclaimed in shock.
So Olivia got taught how to fold a crane and folded Olly’s body into a crane and did it. She wished for all the origami folded by Olly to be unfolded-and that meant her. But the origami diorama of the origami castle, folded by the origami craftsman but the big one was folded by Olly, was displayed on the night of the Origami Festival and that continued.
“Are you sure this will work?” Freshly folded (by the craftsman) Olly had asked freshly folded (also by the craftsman this time) Olivia as they snuck through Toad Town to surprise Princess Peach and Mario in the castle.
“100% sure, my dear brother.” Olivia had said and she was right, it went wonderfully.
End of epilogue!
I know that suspense is building for who Olly and Olivia were talking about but that’s a story for another blog-literally.
A vellumental is, in the stories case, a large (origami)animal or figure guarding something. Ok, to the story now!!
“Olly. Listen to me. I know that I have never gotten truly fiercely angry at you but I am getting close that point now. Just listen. We are origami but this isn’t what we were folded for. You need to get along with flat paper.” Olivia said.
Olly groaned. “Baby sister, you never take my side-”
“DON’T call me baby sister!” It was clear that Olivia was angry now.
“Ok, fine. I will not call you my baby sister anymore, but just “my sister that hates me’, hm? But these flat jerks need to disappear. Don’t you agree, Olivia?” Olly said in this sweet, silly-girly voice, like Glinda the Good Witch in The Wizard Of Oz.
“Nope. I don’t. And I hate you so much that I may as well just live with Mario now. And you don’t know what I’ve been through, Olly.” Olivia moaned.
“Well, I went through the same, for origami’s sake!!” Olly shrieked.
“No, I am not talking about you-know-who, Olly. I lost a friend, then another. Now I feel as I’m losing a brother.” Olivia chorused accidentally-on-purpose.
“Olivia, DON’T you dare remind me about it! Remind me about the friends all you want but if you remind me about them..you’ll be in for it, sister! I was older when we lost you-know-who and if you remind me I will fold you into a crane! Now just stop talking and let Mario fight!” Olly muttered loudly.
