Example Of Two Described Genres

The Rhino Exclusive: A Mystery

On a nice and sunny day, a perfect day for a swim, when all of a sudden a mysterious woman driving at a high speed had crashed into the famous Californian Zoo, while that was happening our old girl Hilda. Who happened to be in her enclosure minding her own business, when all at once she had an intoxicated maniac in a bright red car come crashing into her enclosure and straight into her waterhole.

The Tiger Sibling Rivalry: A Fantasy

On a rainy day, there lie two brothers, both who were tigers. They had massive issues with each other but at least it kept them alive, one of the brothers who was the oldest but the smallest, had made cheeky noises towards his younger but stronger brother. Then all at once the youngest got up and charged at his brother with a roar that sounded like thunder rolling over and over, he charged his brother into a river nearby and the pair were fighting like addictive maniacs.
















My Worst Nightmare Sprang To Life

My Worst Nightmare Sprang To Life . . . .

One dull and grey day I felt like I needed to be with my grandma after the accident, I knew how many days went by while she was cramped up in that awful hospital and how I had an urge to go visit her but I just couldn’t bear to see her in a bad shape, it was unhealthy for not only me but for her as well. But I finally had enough courage to go and see her, but something was whispering in my ear to stay in the comfort of my own home and never to think about visiting grandma but I went with my thoughts instead of going with my instincts.

I arrived at the doors of the hospital taking in a deep breath before entering,  my mind was blank I couldn’t think of anything to say to her, whether to say “I’m so sorry for not coming in sooner” or to say “How you doing nan.” But I couldn’t make my mind up so I went with “ Hi nana how are doing today.”

Once I entered the building I felt a cold breeze go straight through me like as if it was a lost spirit. But I kept on moving towards the reception, the receptionist said to watch my back while entering the fifth floor where my grandma’s room was, and I asked her why and she said there’s bad things up there.

I felt a little spooked, but I didn’t hesitate any longer and with that I made my way to the elevator and I pushed the button with the bloody number five on it. I had no intention to take notice of the blood on the button or the advice the receptionist gave me.

I was walking down the hall until I saw a strange thing lurking through the other side of the hall with eyes shaded in blood.But once I reached the fifth floor I was freezing like as if I was in a giant freezer, I thought to myself why did I come here in  the first place and I remembered I was there to visit my grandma.

When I reached my grandma’s room I could see something cold but dark swirling around her and then disappears like dust getting sucked into a vacuum cleaner. I hesitated at first but I was too curious of what that thing was but when I approached my grandma it came back again but this time showed it’s horrifying bloody mouth with super sharp teeth and eyes the colour of blood.

The fear I felt was horrific with that thing staring me down and warning me not to come any closer than I was, by the look in it’s eyes I knew my grandma was it’s prey and it was feeding on her bloody flesh and by the looks of it that thing was almost finished with her by the looks of her chalky white and pale face. Can you imagine my fear and the horrifying look on my face when I started running for the hospital door but found that I was trapped with the rest of the lost souls in this awful place called Death Row Hospital where the lost souls live.









Nerves Of Steel

Nerves Of Steel



One hot and gusty day I decided to become the very first extreme daredevil in the world and in my family, by doing something that could cost me my life like literally. I would have just lived my average life and enjoy it while I can, but I thought to myself 7 generations of super extreme daredevils run through my blood and my family.

I had adrenaline running through me like a lightning bolt struck me and passed electricity right through me, once I was up in the air I was so afraid of what I would look like coming down. I felt like my life depended on my balance, footwork, belief and concentration. But my life really depended on my balance, belief, concentration of course and my feelings.

I felt so afraid and scared that I would slip and fall floating down like a bird’s light and soft feather, gliding down but instead back to reality I’d be falling so fast I wouldn’t be able to breathe.

What I felt I can’t describe right now because being 1500 feet in the air with nothing to grip onto but a 2 inch thick tight rope below my feet, with me on top trying to keep my balance, trying to tell myself don’t slip or else you’re done for.

I’m half way already,  waiting impatiently  to see the dirt and see and to touch land again, after being held captive in the air by the gusting winds and the hot desert sun’s heat shining on my face making me have an appearance as a red tomato. When I finally came to the last metre I decided to run it and I was on land, the feeling I had was overwhelming that was also  what caught me like a safety harness while I was in the air frightened for my life and for my well being.




















Lyrics To Royals By Lorde

Royals By Lorde

I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address
In the torn up town, no postcode envy
But every song's like:
Gold teeth
Grey Goose
Tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains
Ball gowns
Trashing the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody's like:
Crystal
Maybach
Diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes
Islands
Tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair
And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy
My friends and I we've cracked the code
We count our dollars on the train to the party
And everyone who knows us knows
That we're fine with this, we didn't come from money
But every song's like:
Gold teeth
Grey Goose
Tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains
Ball gowns
Trashing the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody's like:
Crystal
Maybach
Diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes
Islands
Tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair
And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy
ooh ooh oh ooh
We're better than we've ever dreamed
And I'm in love with being queen
ooh ooh oh ooh
Life is great without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair
And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy

My Self Description

My Self - Description:

Hi my name is Deandra,  I am eleven years old and before I forget here is a description of Me, Myself,  and I. See in my mind of description I have different thoughts about different things for instance, lets take Writing as an example. I love to write stories in my own time mostly for pleasure and when I’m really bored. I love to read Horror stories and Fantasies.

There are somethings that I don’t like to do for an example there is some sports I don’t like, which happen to be Sprinting, Rugby etc. But never mind about that, what I especially like is Music, Singing, Playing Instruments, Swimming, Playing Netball, Playing Soccer, Going to the beach, Going on Outings, Hang out with my friends, go to my family’s houses.

When I am at home I have doubts about my family, mostly because they have some really annoying sides, but it holds us all together. Just Like how glue does. My Mum and Dad are the glue and me and my sisters are the paper and decorations that have been scattered on the paper and held together by the glue when it drys. My Family always motivate me in some of my subjects especially my singing and playing Netball.

But when it comes to a time when my Aunty So’onaalofa comes for a visit she is the one and only person besides me who actually gets me, who knows what I am capable of and how I could express it with words instead of expressing it through emotion, body language, and facials. But the tougher things get the better it’ll get after the tough times pass by.

If there is one thing that I know it would have to be the fact that, you can do well in school if you push yourself can make yourself believe that you can achieve anything just as long as you can see what your own future will be like as an adult or as a young adult.

The Walk To Destiny

The Ambitious Walk To Reality....
Inspired by Philippe Petit
By Deandra

Today is the day I make my own ambition reality, but when that breathtaking moment happened when I hesitated to make a single step towards the wire all of my life time experiences flashed before my eyes in less than a minute.

I was thinking of good times I had performing in the Central Park to keep me distracted from the height of the buildings, but then I realised “Why don’t I face my doubts and just think about how much fun I can have on this long piece of freedom,” I thought.

My next move was to do a little twirl but as soon as I got the scent of fresh air flowing through me I decided I might as well do a little of resightle,  after I danced, I ran, after I ran, I had lied down on the wire like as if it was the hard surfaced grass I sometimes lay upon.

After I had stood back up, I realised the police officers and reporters were on the South Tower looking straight at me. They all were telling me I was a mad person and that I was under arrest. But I just turned around ignoring them for a whole long and peaceful hour while I just turned back and forth walking, running, and jogging across the wire.

At last when I was satisfied with my achievement I came towards the Police Officers and held my fists out to the handcuffs,  I felt proud of myself for completing the task I have set for myself.  The Day I walked between the Twin Towers was August 7th 1974, and it was my greatest achievement yet to be noticed by the world. . . . .
