The Chase. By Darragh Q

I hurried down the dense, abandoned street. It was a cold and misty night. I took a sharp turn down a small, slippery alleyway. It smelled like a huge 20 year old sandwich as I struggled to pass. I dared to glance behind me as I peered through the alleyway. I could just make out a burst of white smoke rising into the air. Even though I had run through muck, water and sewers I actually felt very energetic! Just as I started to look in front of me again I slipped on a cylindrical object.

The Mystery at Blueberry House. By Darragh Q

“The Triplets” people used call them, Darragh, Dan and Eoin Harper.

Come on lets have a look,” suggested Darragh boldly. “Ok!” replied the other two. Just as they approached the door, it creaked open.”Lets go in,” said Dan and Darragh. “I don’t know?” replied Eoin, but it was too late the other two had darted into the old abandoned house…

“Duck!” Darragh shouted. Soon after we had practically broken into the house we found out there had to be treasure somewhere, because the house was surprisingly filled with booby traps. There were lazers, spiked balls, holes, fire, closing walls, and the hardest of all RIDDLES. Then we reached a door. Dan swung it open to find a room full of treasure! “But where will we hide it all if we get it?” asked Eoin. Darragh took a step forward he had seen a mark on the box of treasure like this… <~>. But just then a voice came from behind us saying, ” Put your hands up or I will shoot!”
