Written for Day 2 of A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017:
Write a story in 50 words that is set in the past.
One Sunday night there were lights flashing around our house and up the valleys, it was very eerie.
We found out that it was police and a search party looking for a lost man.
They did find him alive Monday evening to late for the searches to walk out, it was raining, so the RNZAF at Ohakea, Palmerston North came with the helicopters to air lift the searches out, what a noise.
Sorry, there are 70 words, but the story was hard to tell with any less.
This story is true.
