The lighthouse keeper...

On a dull, starless night a old stone lighthouse was rotating it’s light above the treacherous headland. The people that lived in the village were celebrating a special party for someone who lived in the merry village.

There was a lighthouse keeper who was an old solitary man that lived alone. He heard an unusual clanking sound, as the lighthouse keeper thought  “oh dear I wonder what is happening?” Then he slammed the window shut with annoyance and looked back at his work, suddenly the lighthouse plunged into complete darkness.

Then the old man started climbing up the stairs to go and see why the light had extinguished. When he reached the top, he saw lots of mechanical cogs and wheels all around the lighthouse basement.

He peeked his head into the area where there large lamp sits that lights up the lighthouse. He picked up the large lamp and as he took a step backwards he stumbled over the tools that were sitting on the ground. He fell backwards and the lamp went flying up into the air and it came crashing down onto the ground, as it landed it smashed into lots of tiny pieces.

Gasping for breath the old man was sitting on the ground as he saw the boat came further and further so the boat blast when it came closer to the dangerous rock. While he was looking out the window he saw flooded with light come towards  the lighthouse. Suddenly the man was gasping for breath as soon as he got down the stairs. As soon as all the people were leading to the house the man was shocked when he opened  the door. When everyone was coming to the house he felt very happy because he almost got the blame for when the boat nearly crashed into the rock. So they all lived happily ever after.
