100 WC week 24

… ‘I’m trying to hold on,’ he shouted …
The Monkey bars 

David rushes to the monkey bars hoping to be first, but he sees the new kid is there already.

“There can only be one person on the monkey bars and that is me!” David
 says under his breath. 

“ Let's have a monkey bar grip off,  last one to stay on gets the monkey bars for a week”
“Okay” the boy replies

Five minutes in, they’re barely holding on, and all the kids from the school are all gathered round.

“ Are you slipping?” David says  in disbelief that the new boy is still hanging on.

‘I’m trying to hold on’ he shouted, as a loud truck comes past.


  1. Keira,
    Your piece builds tension as I found myself gripping tightly with the contestants. The truck broke the tension at the end and leaves me wondering who got the monkey bars for the week? Keep writing. Mrs. G., Team 100, Guilderland, NY, USA
