I was born in Salford in 1954, not far from Ordsall Park. I attended Mount Carmel's School, All Soul's in Weaste then attended St Lawrence Secondary SchoolAs soon as I left school I became a carpenter, all my working life was in the construction industry until I became a Lecturer at The Oldham College in 2001.
I have never written a story before, well perhaps at school, the odd essay or poem for homework.
My wife and I are Foster Carers.I was inspired to write' Marley the Adventurer' after a walk in the local park with my wife and the three boy who were in our care at the time, they had very little experience /interest in the outdoors and so get their attention I suggested that they should find different types of leaves, so the fun adventure developed. All three of them were running around pretended to be super heroes, getting super powers from touching leaves.From watching the boys at play and listening to what they were saying gave me an idea which encouraged me to turn their game into story.
I began writing the story in October 2015 and after twelve months of adding, revising and bringing new characters in the story, it was printed, awaiting to be published. I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I have enjoyed writing the story..............Chris Bebbington
‘The curse that the Forest Witch placed on the forest was now taking its toll. It had become cold, dark and lifeless.
She found it difficult to make her spells and potions. There was nothing in the forest that could satisfy her needs.
The curse could only be lifted by a young true adventurer...............’
Marley woke, relaxed and refreshed from the visit that he had to the park and its greenhouse the previous day and from the terrifying episode that he had while he was there.
“I wonder what kind of adventures are in store for me today," Marley said to himself with a stretch and a yawn.
Marley is a young ten year old boy who attends the local school in the village of Castle Town. He loves going to school and is really engaged when learning about something new. He was fascinated when the class began studying Roman culture and how they left their mark on history, what they did and how it affected the modern world. Some of his classmates said that he could have been a Roman with his jet black hair, brown eyes, and his Mediterranean olive complexion.
Marley's favourite school day is Friday, not just because it's the last day of the week, it's because his class has a nature study day. Marley and his classmates have been to farms, museums, and the greenhouse in the local park. Marley loves to touch the leaves on the different plants and trees they all feel so different. His class have also studied the life cycle of a butterfly, he loves the feeling of a caterpillar crawling on his hands and up on to his arms it tickles so such it make him laugh. Marley does not like spiders he has a fear of them, which his classmates could not understand because he will let caterpillars crawl on him.
Yesterday’s visit to the local park, Marley and his class went the greenhouse which had lots of different flowers and exotic plants. Marley was in his element, he wandered round the greenhouse touching and feeling the different textures of the leaves and flowers. Each time the group visited the greenhouse there was always a new flower or plant in full bloom showing off its colours and unusually shaped leaves.
As Marley wandered round the greenhouse he came across a rather unusual exotic plant, bright orange, the size and shape of a golf ball, made up of tiny little buds flowering. The stem didn't seem strong enough to support the budding flower, its leaves were long and shaped like needles. As Marley studied this bright orange plant more closely and feeling the texture of its leafs, as if from nowhere a spider landed in the palm of his hand, Marley froze with fear, the spider stood motionless in the middle of his hand. Marley just stared at the unwelcome visitor, his breathing became heavier and he could feel his heart pumping faster and beads of sweat running down his face. Just then a hand appeared from above and plucked the spider out of his hand. It was his school teacher, Miss Rainyford she had seen Marley, frozen like a statue, realized what was happening and rushed to his aid.
