Write an adventure story. It starts off like this...
"Once upon a time, I went out for a walk with my family. We walked our usual way but something just felt a little different. As we entered the woods, the ground became bumpy and uneven. We struggled to walk and as we looked down we saw that we were surrounded by bright, white pebbles. As the sun shone down on them they appeared even brighter than before. In the distance I spotted a pebble that seemed to be glistening brighter than all the others. We walked closer, as I reached down to pick it up it changed into a bright ruby red shade. Suddenly, I started to feel the most strangest feeling."
