Your task now is to choose two images to write your stories. Think and observe the images carefully. They must be different as you need one for Spanish and one for English. You will be expected to write good fantasy stories in both languages including all the relevant fantasy elements, some mystery in order to hook the reader's attention as well as the caption.

Give it a try! Hope you like it!
