Prompt 1:

"What do you think it is, Will?" Sophie asked as she peered at the shiny object.
Will stepped closer to get a better look. "I have no idea," he said, "but it's definitely not from around here."
The two scientists were living in the Amazon Rainforest, far away from civilization. They had been there for years, exploring and studying the wildlife.
Sophie was mesmerized by the shiny object. It was so beautiful and mysterious. She couldn't take her eyes off it.
"Let's take it back to our camp and study it further," Will suggested.
Sophie nodded eagerly. She was curious about what the object could be.

As they took the object to their camp, they found that the object was actually…?

Prompt 2:

"Hey, Taylor," Chloe called out as she walked into the library. "I just found out about a writing contest. The winning story will be published in the newspaper!"

Taylor's eyes lit up. She was always excited to write stories with Chloe. "That sounds like so much fun!" she exclaimed. "Let's enter together!"

The girls spent the next few days brainstorming ideas for their story. They wanted it to be original and engaging. Finally, they came up with a concept that they both loved.

"I don't have time to read," Patricia said. "There's too much else I could be doing." Tyrone shook his head.

"You're wasting your time on social media," he said. "And you're not getting anything out of it." Patricia just glared at him. She didn't like it when…?

Prompt 5:

Captain Kidd was feeling rather lonely. His sister, “Miss Moody”, always seemed to be in a bad mood. But he refused to give up. He would find a way to make her smile.

"Come on, Miss Moody," said the captain, standing at the foot of his sister's bed. "It'll be fun."

Miss Moody just glared at him. She never wanted to play pretend with her little brother. It was always so childish. But she found herself reluctantly getting out of bed and following him downstairs.

"What game are we playing?" she asked grumpily.

"Pirates!" replied Captain Kidd excitedly. "I'm the captain and you're my first mate."

“Oh, great.” she said sarcastically. “How… thrilling.”
