So the time has come. Unfortunately every good thing has to come to an end and this is no different. So sit back, get a cuppa and enjoy the final chapter in Ted the Sheds grand story!
Ted was awoken by a loud roaring noise coming from the sky. He rubbed his eyes and looked upwards to see what the noise was; all the other garden buildings were already awake looking skyward. A plane was shooting across the sky, although this plane was moving much faster than any normal one Ted has seen before. It quickly went out of view and silence descended upon the field once again.
“Weird…” commented Gertrude the Greenhouse.
“That wasn’t any normal plane” added Chris the Chicken Shack.
Not sharing his friends concerns, “I think it’s quite cool, look how fast it went” Ted said.
No sooner had he finished, another deafening roar pierced the sky and 4 similar planes flew over the friends’ plain. “This isn’t good at all…” murmured Sarah the Shed.
Suddenly a huge blast went off not too far away. The friends gasped as a fireball followed by a plume of smoke bellowed into the air. “It’s happening…” said Gertrude. Now getting slightly worried, “what do you mean it’s happening? What’s happening?” enquired Ted the Shed.
With panic stricken across his logs, Larry the Log Cabin explained; “haven’t you noticed anything wrong with this place since you’ve been here Ted? Look around you. There’s nothing. No houses. No cars. No people. Just the one road that goes in and out of the plain.”
Ted the Shed looked around and saw Larry was right. How had he not noticed something so obvious? Being with new garden buildings it completely slipped his mind to look for his old owners. “What are you saying then Larry?” Ted asked.
“This is military testing area Ted. Those planes flying above us are RAF bombers. They come here and test out their latest weapons on the area!” Larry clarified.
“What?! Why on earth do they need us here? My owners wouldn’t do this to me. No way” a distressed Ted the Shed said.
“I’m so sorry Ted, but they have…” Larry the Log Cabin replied.
Another plane flew across, followed by another. A bomb went off in the distance again. A second bomb exploded to the left of the Ted and he looked away in fear. He remained unscathed but a look of horror swept across his face as he turned back round... Sarah the Shed had been crumpled by the blast!
“SAAAAAAARAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH” Ted cried out.
The shed of his dreams had been blown apart before his very eyes. Chris the Chicken Shack had also suffered the same fate; all that was left were a few charred, broken panels. Bombs continued to rain down around Ted as he sat there helpless. When will this be over? He thought to himself. Then after a few long minutes, BOOM…. It was….
