Five Minute Writing

"Hey you back into line." Yelled the Easter bunny. He hopped over to the naughty rabbit who'd been nibbling at the kids chocolate eggs and with his paw swotted him over the head, taking his basket away from him to give to another. "Now fellas, let us hide these chocs, before the kids come out."
Two women were talking together in fluent French as they entered the Moulin Rouge. They both headed to the dressing room to have their make-up done and put on their costumes, which were frilly skirts, fishnet tights and feathered head dresses.
Holly smiled with excitement, when she found a kinder egg stuffed down the back of the sofa. She quickly pealed the wrapping of and eat the chocolate, inside she found a small purple dinosaur toy which in the palm of her hand, came alive.
What word should I use, fabulous or fantastic? Which one of these will be my chosen word? I'm writing a scene but don't know what word to use.
Salty water comes in with the tide, hissing and spraying, making us wet. Sea weed crackles under our feat, rough but just damp on the flesh.
Be 'my valentine?' Puff what a silly phrase. All this, for a day based on Saint Valentine, who lived hundreds of years ago. A day of love? Where for Cupid strikes people with arrows...
A vintage rhinestone aquamarine locket.
Gleaming gold in the sunshine.
Blue like the sea, will fit in my pocket.
Worn around my neck, it's quite fine.
Sad, tears, throbbing throat, aching chest, hick-up, sniff, tissue please, runny nose, yuck snot, weeping sorrow, red and swollen, bad memories go, wiped away, chocolate now, make things better.
"Mum, don't worry I've got Tiger with me." The little girl of about ten said into her pink phone, clutching a stuffed animal. "I told you I'm all will cuddle me if I have a scary dream." She twirled a ringlet round her finger.
He glanced back at his loved ones for the last time. The trees were bare, their golden brown leaves crunched beneath his feat. Though in a photo everything would be black and white, since coloured photos were not yet invented.
Children of all ages dress up and get together to watch spooky movies, trick or treat on Halloween.
I was in a throng of people, it was loud and very busy. I didn't like it. Edging my way to the side, I tried to make myself invisible.
Mint is a nice smell, it's refreshing and tastes good. Rubbish bins smell bad, their revolting.
The scent was strong, reminding me of a soap shop, however this fragrant wasn't that pleasant as the others, sniffing it gave me a little of a headache. What was that smell? It was so unusual.
I remember when, my brother was younger. He was cute and people always mistook him for a girl, because of his long golden curls. Now though it's another story, he still can be charming but most of the time he's annoying!

rewriten Beauty and The Beast

There was once a wealthy family, whom became poor. For the father went out every night gambling and drowning his sorrow for the loss of his wife. The two older sisters weren't any better example, for they also spent their share on drugs and alcohol. The only sensible one was the youngest Bella Donna.

One night, the father came home, having got lost in the forest and helped by a hairy stranger, who claimed he was very rich and would help the family get their wealth back. The hairy stranger Wolfram, failed to mention at the time, by getting their wealth back, one of his daughters had to get married to him.

Wolfram fell in love with Bella Donna, when he stayed for dinner and saw that she was the most prettiest, from the three daughters. After his meal with them, Wolfram said he had to go. However he didn't leave, he stayed in the garden and from behind the tree, watched Bella Donna in her room getting ready for bed. He was a strange man, a bit twisted in the mind, that might be since it was a full moon and he was mental at this time of the month, being a werewolf and all.

When the moon was at it's highest and Wolfram resembled a hairy man, with claws, fangs, a tail and pointy ears; He climbed the vines up to Bella Donna's balcony and snuck into her room. He found her sleeping upon a feathered mattress and lifted her gently into his arms.

She did not wake until they were at his castle. She really was a heavy sleeper, not only did she sleep through a kidnapping, she also weighed a tone. Which is surprising for she looked like a model.

When Bella Donna awoke, she screamed. She was surrounded by red rose, which she was allergic to. But also there was a man, if you could call him one, kneeling on one knee with a massive diamond ring.

She stayed in his castle, being kept there against her will. And in one day had learned many things about her Kidnapper, who now had lost the tail and ears, and was just hairy. He shared many of her hobbies, such as cooking. She was begging to fall in love with him, but her feelings changed as soon as she looked at his grotesque face.

Later that night she runaway. Nevertheless as soon as Bella Donna got home, her father made her go back to the castle again, after hearing her retell the story about the giant diamond ring.

When she and her father reached the gates to the castle, she realized she did love him, for he was a sweet man and his appearance wouldn't stop her to marry him. So you can guess how surprised and delighted she was to find him handsome, shaved and nicely groomed.

Bella Donna and Wolfram, lived happily ever after. Except the three days of the month, when there was a full moon.

Red Hair Colour

Which shade of red hair colour is the best...?

copper red (bright or dark), amber, auburn, strawberry blonde, terracotta, berry red, mahogany, ginger, persimmon red, rich red tomato, cherry red, cinnamon red or cherry black...?
So many different colours, but which one is the best...
I died my hair cherry black last summer (Cheryl Cole's colour up there ^) and have wondered if I should die my hair again and what shade would it be.

Surviving Scotland

The opaque sky and sea blend together, cloudy typical English weather, though we weren't in England we were on an island of the coast of Scotland. A survival course. I shivered, wrapping my arms around myself. I was dressed in several layers, jumper, coat, walking boots and a heavy rucksack of 80 Lt's. Plus I had to carry the pots and pans, my friends insisted.

I was tired, thirsty and as we approached a small clean flowing stream, I fell onto all fours, with my hands I scooped water up and brought it to my cracked lips.

In amongst the grass, bloodsucking ticks crawled around, waiting to touch bare flesh and sink their teeth in. They would swell into big balloons, before falling off or get the tweezer treatment, then they would be plucked.

As I bent down for more water, I noticed one of them making it's way up my exposed arm. Before it had the chance to attach, I flicked it off. They weren't the only vampire around here. There was also the mosquito, flying and biting everyone, in their wake.

Slate, shells and other stones crunched under our feet as we walked to the shore. The jade hills rolled to the edge of the coastline and far behind me, stretching endlessly.
