  1. When I was in Africa, I awoke only to feel an excruciating pain in my abdomen. My liver was gone due to me betting it on my crossbred rhinoceros. I dove through the window into my livingroom, where I was about to feed my Bedouin who was currently growing bananas and other fruits to feed our inbred lions. This was the only way to keep them from becoming angry. I took my rifle and went out our gates, past our giraffes and zebras. I followed signs until I arrived at a river. I had accidentaly misread the signs, so I paid a native to take me across the river. With his voodo magic he levitated my body and made me float above the water. When I arrived at the supermarket where I would hunt antillons, I discovered they were all dead. I thought about home, for the lions would not get any food and would thus become aggresive towards him. I wept.

    When I was in Africa, I awoke in my elegant tent and I caught my banana running around outside the tent. I was not sure if this was a daydream or not. But I found out that I never daydreamnt that so I drew a rhinoceros with a rifle and a lion who just ate a giraff. But I may have mistaken the zebra for a giraff because it looked like it had been overfed for a few weeks by a Bedouin. All my native friends were very generous and paid me a lot of money because I ran away from the aggressive voodo people. But I got very angry because I woke up on the floor in my own ugly home.

  3. When I was in Africa, I drew my rifle as a saw a rhinoceros but i was saved by a native. I later did that native but it turned out she was just a really aggressive zebra who i struck with my angry lion and later ate them both together with a banana. I was spoon-fed the lion and the zebra by a Bedouin weeping on a giraff. Then i met a voodoo doctor that I outbid for a ticket home since i was done with this wicked place, the doctor was getting laid on the sofa in the room and he lied about how i cheated during the bidding so i leapt on top of him and smacked him in the head.

    When I was in Africa
    When I was in Africa, I awoke in the beautiful desert when I broadcasted my first show of the day which was called ”The banana daydreamed”. It was a drawn cartoon with a rhinoceros as the main star. A few days later a group of natives foretold the ending of my show and how I have forsaken this world. Apparently the natives were a terror organisation consisting of inbred Bedouins who usually raided their neighboring tribes with giraffes as weapons, their raids were so effective because they had taught the giraffes how to use rifles. The Police around this area tried to find these terrorist but it was hard, because they were always misled by a group of lions, but they outran them while they rode bareback on their tame Zebras. When the Bedouins were caught, where they tried to prove that they weren’t guility to a judge-group consistent of a group of aggressive voodoo-jesters.

    Story
    When i was in Africa, I rose up an early morning when the sun was barely up. I Ate a banana on my way to work as a park ranger. I took care of different animals in the nature reserve. Some examples of animals you can encounter in reserve are: rhinoceros, lions, giraffes and zebras. I had to have a rifle for safety but i usually used a big net to catch an animal running loose. A normal day working as a park ranger was feeding the animals and then inspecting their reserve, but this day was different, i could feel it. When i arrived at work my boss told me to swim and dive with the lions. I asked him why and he just told me to do it or get fired. I did it and it went fine but it was a bit scary. Later that day i was talking to the natives, the Bedouin. They told me to fight the giraffe but i misheard and thought they said ridethe giraffe. I walked up to the giraffe and jumped up on it. The giraffe was aggressive and angry at first but it later calmed down. The natives thought i used voodoo to tame but i just tamed it like a wild horse. Right when i got of the giraffe i awoke in my tent, it was all a dream!

    When I was in Africa, I was driving along when a banana suddenly arose out of a burned down, voodoo grave. I was browbeaten by the intensity of the moment. I immediately saw that the banana was crossbred and it crept towards me. As I was shivering in fear natives came riding on zebras, rhinoceros and lions. They were Bedouin. I knew that because they had giraffe tattoos and rifles on their backs. As the banana became more and more aggressive. I started to hide in the back of my car. The Bedouin were also angry because the grave that the banana had destroyed was their ancestors. The banana had said that the grave was his, but he had been disproven in court. As the fight went on for many years I still dwelled in the back of my car. But then one day the banana fell victim to the Bedouins´ Rifles. After the war I forewent my car but I jerry-built one of the destroyed grave.

  9. In Afrika, I saw a Lion flee from a angry Zebra. It was a shocking moment even for the people who held the rifles. After the sightseeing day was over I was planning to go to the big City for some shopping. When I was getting in the taxi the driver asked me if I wanted to be there fast or not, of course I answered fast but it was a foolish mistake. The driver suddenly accelerated in speed and drove very aggressive to make it there as fast as possible. I made it there physical but not mental, It was a horrible experience. When I was in the shop I saw a monkey who held a banana. On my way out I saw a voodoo shop and got curious. When I was in the shop I saw the voodoo break a burnt bone. After that day I went home to go to sleep. A new morning new possibilities. My third day was like the first one, a sightseeing day. That day I had more luck than last time cause now I saw rhinoceros, giraffs and bedouins who where hunting them. I was extremely lucky to had met some natives who was guiding me this three days. After this holiday I lost a other opportunity to take vacation but made some amazing memories.

  10. When I was in Africa, I was bent until I was as bent as a banana. Because of this, I was chosen to join the zebra tribe. The Zebra told me about all kind of problems they had to deal with, for example, the voodoo. The voodoo did everything in it’s power to make the giraffes, zebras and rhinoceros fall. Ever since coming here I have flown quite a lot more, thanks to the zebracopters. I also now know how to mow down rifles with help of voodoo. Even though the zebra tribemaster told me to stay away from the voodoo. He warned me about the ”shrink effect” that would make me shrink. There was a political problem in the land, the natives, the Bedouin, were very aggressive towards us zebras.
    I then woke up in bed next to a zebra.

    When I was in Africa, I arose to the sound of a rhinoceros running around outside the tent. I became angry; it had bent my cooking utensils. Afterwards; when the rhinoceros was finished. I smelled something it smelt burnt. I looked around and saw some shadows; I quickly fell to the ground in an attempt to stay out of sight. I started to creep closer to where I saw the shadows, and saw that they were actually Voodoo doctors that had cut firewood, and were preparing a fire. They didn’t look aggressive, so I took my rifle, just in case. When I took a closer look, they looked drunk. They were waving a banana around as I approached them. I asked them what they were doing. They were having a native ritual, and asked if I wanted to join them. I accepted. After we had eaten, we all fell asleep. I gave them a thank you gift. Afterwards we went our merry ways, I saw a lion and a giraffe, even a Bedouin, on my way home.

    When I was in Africa, I awoke to the sound of a rifle and a moaning lion, looked at the direction of the moaning and saw a bleeding lion and an angry voodoo native. I remembered what my father had told me when I was little, “stay away from the voodoo!” so I ran away as fast as I could. When I was all alone I had a stinging feeling in my lungs so I blew as hard as I could. When I finally had caught my breath I heard something in the bushes nearby, I checked it out, there was a Bedouin creep checking me out and beating the meat, so I ran away and dove into the nearby lake. After about an hour or so I went ahead and made a fire next to the lake and cooked some fish that I had caught and boiled some of the water, when the water had cooled down and the fish was ready I drank the water and ate the fish, I also ate a banana I found on the ground, from a distance I could see a rhinoceros and a aggressive giraffe fighting while a zebra was running towards me, so I fed it when he got closer. The zebra ate all the food I gave him and then he became angry because he didn’t like the food. So he ran after me and I hid in a tree. The zebra was gone and I was tired so I found myself a place to sleep on and leaned to a tree and fell asleep waiting for a new day.

So one night I snuck out my window Because I didn’t want him to notice, I ran to the hospital. I noticed one strange thing outside the hospital, I could se a rhinoceros and it ate a ton bananas it gave me a weird feeling but I had to get rid of my pain. I walked in and told the nurse what was happening. Right as I told her, her face turned red and she took my hand, we ran to the doctor. she spoke to him in her native language, but to me it sounded like a zebra mixed with a giraffe was speaking to a angry lion. He told me that I was possessed by voodoo and that he had to shoot me so he picked up his rifle and every thing became black.

    In Africa, I awoke to the bananas falling on my face. Today was a good day because I was going to the zoo to see the lion King kill some natives in the colosseum.
    It was made for the animals to release all the stress that the people at the zoo put on them by throwing sticks and such things at them. Today was special because it was the great king of the lions turn to kill some native warriors from tribes all over the African savanna to bring glory and food back home. The keepers brought

    It was a slaughter feast he, was so aggressive and angry and beat up all the natives into little pulps of flesh and bone.
    The last challenger of the lion was the voodoo man of the biggest native tribe. He used some voodoo magic to become many times stronger than the normal man and twice as large. He held up the lion high up in the air and threw it into the wall of the arena.
    The crowd who were all surprised by the man’s immense power were all dead silent.

    The keepers of the colosseum choose to let the lion king rest for a while as he was very hurt they let him into his cage and fed him some roasted beef with mashed potatoes.

    They sent in the innocent but adorable giraffe Daisy who was filled with love and just wanted to play with the voodoo man. The man enraged with all the deaths he had suffered through did not show Daisy any mercy and crushed her with one blow. The crowd got very scared…

    And so did the keepers they did not see any way to stop the man so they sent out the big armored rhinoceros known as Brutus. Brutus was a crossbreed between a rhinoceros and an elephant.
    Brutus was usually only used when the animals of the zoo managed to escape their cages and they needed a quick solution to stop the terror the animals brought with them.
    Joy was filled in the arena as Brutus marched with great speed and stung him with his giant horn. The voodoo man did not show any pain and just kept on punching on Brutus Metal forehead. The voodoo man was crushed against the wall and the man fell to the ground.
    The voodoo man arose everything ended in a flash of lightning that killed everybody on earth.

    I did not read the instructions that well and ended up with this. (Alittle bit over 150 words eh? Read this if you got time for it or don’t mind and let me do another one when i get home)

  17. One super cool story of me in Africa

    When I was in Africa I awoke. It’s an usual thing to do in the morning over there. Kind of weird but if you give it some time it kind of works. I was very sad because one day my tent burnt down. I felt lonely so I bought a voodoo doll. And also a banana. Okay… the banana was into the bargain so I did not cost me anything. It creeped me out a lot when I dug it out of the ground. I just did my usual morning routine. I fed the zebras,fought angry lions and all this usual stuff you do in Africa before I found the villige of some agressive natives. They wanted me to call them Bedouins. But they had ussual names like Bob and Jack and Bill. They taught me how to shoot a rhinoceros and a giraffe at the same time by only using a rifle and another two friends that are really good at aiming in case I miss.
    This is 166 words already and I am out of words so I don’t have any more space to finish this story. That’s too bad…

  18. When I was in Africa, I awoke by Bedouin.
    Today was a good day because I was going to see some giraffes, rhinoceros, lions and zebras outside.

    But, it turned out awful because I saw a lion ate a rhinoceros.

    The blood spread all over its face. He was aggressive and angry and he looked at me. My heart started to beat because I didn’t want to get eaten too. It ran forward to me and my heart started to beat more. It ran so fast that I had to catch my rifle and try to kill it. When I finally got my rifle I aimed at it. I took three breaths to calm down my heartbeat.

    After that a bullet came out from my rifle and flew forward and hit the lion breast.

    It died immediately because the bullet hit its heart. The blood came out from its breast.

    I said to the lion “I’m sorry”.

    A voodoo man came from the green forest and he said to me “ he will forget you, don’t worry”.

  21. When i was in Africa, I awoke in my tent and went out and beat a giraff with my banana.
    Later that day I was out looking for something to eat when suddenly a lion approached. The lion looked angry and started to roar. Aggressively, picked up my rifle and shot him, caught him and ate him for lunch. I continued to deal with a lot of different animals, for example, zebras and rhinoceros. That evening I was making a BBQ so I invaited the Bedouins who was natives in Africa. I knew that me and the Bedouins could make a great team and maybe I could get to know the famous voodoo, and learn how to control it. We made a good team and together we sold our knowledge about voodoo. And taught people when to use it. But then I woke up, and it was just a dream……

    When I was in Africa, I awoke in my tent during midday, the sun stood high in the sky and the birds were singing. After about 20 minutes of just sitting in my tent I realized how hungry I was, so i grabbed my rifle and went out hunting. And yes of course it was illegal but I didn’t really care, the only thing I cared about was that I had food for the day. When I got back from my little hunting tour I had caught one elephant that i shoot right between the eyes, one native that I had beaten with my bare fists and two giraffes that I fed to my pets(the ants behind my tent). Im glad that the elephant didn’t feel any pain and the taste was great, I really like elephants. After about one week the native that I captured fled and I never found him.

    A long time ago when I was in Africa, I dreamt that a lion began to stroke his back against me whilst I was sleeping. I awoke from my sleep, the lion creeped me out. I chose to break his neck, with the help of my nearly forgotten giraffe. Later that day I began screaming when a young voodoo doctor broke into my tent and stole my rifle and back then angry giraffe. But he didn’t know that my other animal was a trained killer, I called on my bedouin strength and summoned a giant tropical zebra. This was no normal zebra, no this zebra was hungry, aggresive and all it wanted was to have a fresh bloody meal. And my zebra got it. Before I could say the word ”Quidditch” the voodoo guy was dead and his intestines was all over the zebras face. There on the ground hidden under a big rock, I found the doctor he was covered in blood.
