Harris Burdick stories:Boy Wonder


Boy wonder 

April 21st, Friday 1996. It has been 24 hours since the accident at Greivers point, we didn’t believe what the locals from the area said about the accident but we took precautions just incase what they said is true. April 22nd, Saturday, The smoke is still rising from the laboratory, we thought the fire department would have put it out by now but no the plumb of black smoke just slowly rising every time we look out the window, taunting us to come near, like a cobra, somehow intriguing. April 23rdSunday, 3 days since the accident at Greivers point is when we start noticing little differences like noises and moved objects in other peoples yards like when Mr. Johnson’s pink flamingo got smashed. My mom is always  carefully peeking through our windows, trying to find something ,which reminded me of the people in Bigfoot documentaries, but not just that, she is being strange it started when she had to leave her job at the lab, it was so weird to see her like this because she usually seems more confident then dad. We were in the backyard helping my older sister with her garden, because I liked working around flowers, when we hard a CRASH!…to be continued

    Entertaining post…ok so what would I consider a bad Christmas present? Well I think it would have to be laundry! Yuck! If I got laundry for Christmas I would cry. It’s the household job that never ends. So please don’t ever decide to splurge on a big pile of laundry for me on Christmas Day!

    Hi Thai,
    Your story was a really interesting read. I like that you used a diary format to create the idea that the boy was actually writing the story. I also hope you actually continue this piece because I would love to see what happens next. What was the crash?
