Welcome To Six Sentence Stories
Hosted by ZOE at
This week we join our intrepid adventurers as they craft six (and only six) sentences into a full fledged story, using any genre they like. As with other weeks they will be using one cue word as the concept for their masterpiece, which they will add to the link below.
What cue is this week’s challenge you ask? SUBSTITUTE.

‘If life doesn’t provide for a substitute then it is better to take it away’, so saying he thrust the six-inch long blade deep inside the still breathing heart of Elwin, his childhood best friend.’
‘Henceforth, there would be only one school champion.’
