Word Relationships

How might each pair of words be connected?
Vulnerable/Fluorescent
They are similar because the use of fluorescent is sometimes used to prevent injuries so people will see and stop at the fluorescent signs .
Void/interconnected
They  are similar because in a blank space there is always connecting to something else.

Extended Writing
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
When I had moved house and we were going around the house with barely anything in the rooms and it was empty.
