100 word challenge#31

Here’s Helen’s writing for this week’s prompt – which is the pictue below:

This was my first lesson of “monster hunting” and my assignment was to catch a giant bumblebee that had been terrifying the neighbourhood for several weeks. My friend Bill and I searched the whole town for hours, when we suddenly heard a weird and loud noise behind us. We turned around and saw a huge UFO crashing. We came closer and realised that it was our monster already dead. That is when Bill got the bright idea to stage a fight with the bee. He took a picture of me striking down the disgusting bumblebee and posted it on instagram.
