Always double check

Nearly a century ago there was an army of ships with one mission – to kill a beast that roamed the waters.

After many weeks travelling, they got to a cave full of fish bones. They knew something was off ! Then, all of a sudden, there was a ferocious roar so loud that the sound waves pushed two men over .

Then they fired their cannons.  The explosions made the cave shake and rocks fell and covered the entrance.

They heard a screech of pain that sounded like wounded animal.

The next month the men returned home and went back to their families. then all of a sudden every man from the mission was turned to thick stone.

  1. Hi Oscar! This was such an interesting backstory for the statue in the picture. I wonder what sort of animal it was, to be able to turn the soldiers to stone after its death. Perhaps a mythological creature? I really like your opening line in this story, as it sets the dramatic tone of what happens.

    Great work on this and keep writing!
