  1. horse – door – sweat – remote – quarter – candle – skin – melting – river – lion

    It was a sweltering hot day in mid July, the sun was directly overhead and the sky was free of clouds, and the air smelled like newly cut grass. I mounted my obedient American paint (HORSE) as it neighed in happiness at the sight of me. I fed him an leftover apple from lunch, it slobbered over my arm as it took a large hunk, I bit some too and packed it back in my bag for later. I gave the horse a light kick and it started a steady run, 30 minutes passed in silent admiring the beautiful views of the countryside; the vast green trees going on forever, the twisting soil roads and the light shade of blue in the sky. We reached our destination shortly after, it was Mr. and Mrs. Dursely family farm. I slid of my horse and tied his harness to an nearby will tree. I threw him the leftover apple and went to meet Mr.. and Mrs. Dursely. I knocked on their (DOOR) politely and waited for, I was greeted by Ms. Dursely a short lady with blond hair and blue eyes. She had an apron and a rolling pin, she was probable making bread as usual. She smiled and allowed me inside their home and ushered me to sit on the dining table. She rushed into the kitchen and hollered.
    “How would you like a batch of fresh cookies”
    “It would be very lovely” I replied
    The house was very hot too, I wiped some beads of (SWEAT) of my forehead. Ms Dursley came bustling in the room with a batch of freshly baked cookies. She took the remote and turned of the blaring T.V to make the room quieter
    ” Alright, why did you visit me”
    “My mother needed need a quarter of a ton of grains, wheat and beans from your farm” .
    As soon as I ended my sentence the light in the house went off.
    “Oh my, the lights went off again its probably those sneaky rats biting on my electricity wire” waving her rolling pan dangerously. Il go get the spare (CANDLES) she said. She returned with the candle the candlelight making a ghoulish glow across the (SKIN) on her face. She placed the candle on the table and said
    “So where were we again “.
    ” Oh yeah, your mother needed some a quarter of a ton of food”
    “Yeah that’s what”
    “I’m sorry but most of our crops were eaten by the nearby coyotes we tried our best to shoot them down but they were as fierce as (LIONS)”
    ” To make matters even worse even the nearby (RIVER) flooded drowning the most of the crops ”
    I bid her goodbye and mounted my horse ready to return home.


  2. “Where are you taking me?” the animal squealed.
    All the man heard was a series of strange HORSE noises. He did not reply to the question which the horse already knew the answer to.The horse kicked and screamed on the empty, dark, and mysterious street. Nothing could be seen for miles except for the gloomy houses standing in perfect identical rows. No one could hear the desperate cries of the animal being dragged away by the cloaked stranger. The horse looked up in agony as it seemed everyone had closed their DOOR on him. Unwanted. Abandoned. Unwelcome. Those were the words that perfectly described what the horse was feeling. Tears began to drip from the eyes of the grief stricken creature which looked to others as SWEAT. He pulled as hard as he could remembering the happy faces of the children who petted him in a now REMOTE village.
    He was sold to the glue factory for no less than a QUARTER. The old horse promised he would never be sent off to factories like his relatives and the rest of the animals. All have been turned into things like a CANDLE made from their fat. He knew he was lucky enough to be last. The horse began to give in to the incredible strength of the man, and slowly by slowly he was pulled away. All the while remembering the pigs whose SKIN was turned into shoes and other horrible things. The animals who are now candles MELTING for the use of people. It again looked to others as he was sweating like a RIVER, but were tears of sorrow. The horse was not thinking anymore of what he was to become, but what the others became. And as he took his last breath he smiled and said,”At least I wasn’t eaten by a LION”

    1. You certainly have quite the sense of humour. You carried me all the way with your gift of writing, and then BAM! “…at least I wasn’t Eaten by a lion”
      I can’t wait to see what you do with the next list. πŸ‘
