The Accident. By Terri

Late one evening Cara went one a bike ride far from home, but half way through, she was rounding a corner when her bike hit a large rock ''AGRRRHHH!'' Screamed Cara as she went crashing to the ground with a huge ''THUMP!' ''Ohh, MAN!''She yelled as she studied the huge graze going right down her leg.Cara tried to get back onto her bike, but for some reason she couldn't! Then she saw why, when she had fallen off her bike her ankle had gone 'CRACK!' It was broken. Pain shot through her leg as she tried to put her foot on the pedals over and over again.

She sat down and tried to think of what to do, but nothing would come, so she tried calling for help, but because she was in the middle of the forest There was no one for miles: Cara tried calling again and a dog sprinted out of the bush, it started sniffing and then stopped when it got to Cara, it sniffed at her pocket and then sat down and tilted its head,
''what THE?!!'' Cara thought, but then she remembered something, ''of COURSE!'' She thought, the dog had smelt her bacon! She had put it in her pocket in case she got hungry! Cara thought about this for a moment, then she wondered if the dog had an owner, she loved dogs, and look at the way its tilting its head, she thought, it was so CUTE! She thought about it for a moment, and then gave the dog one of the pieces of her bacon.

The dog ate happily, then a thought struck Cara. She could use her bike lock to put on the dogs collar and join it to the handle-bars of her bike so that it could take her to its owner! ''If it has one.'' Cara thought. Then she did it. The dog finished eating and looked at Cara again with those CUTE milky-brown eyes, its head automatically tilted, it was just TOO cute! Cara had plenty of bacon, and used it all to get the dog to run.

After hours with the dog, Cara finally, through tired eyes, saw a little cottage at the side of a foot path. The dog went up to the door and started barking, the barking was answered by a tall, thin man, who yelled ''FLUFFY! Me boy! I've bin' lookin' for yeh fer days!'' Fluffy barked and licked his owner's face, ''oh, Fluffy, who've yeh bought with yeh? MY! What did yeh do to tha' ankle o' yours?????''
''Oh, well, sir, I was hoping you could help me! I broke my ankle when my bike hit a rock!''
The man smiled. ''Well, tha's lucky for you!'' He said. Cara frowned, What is WRONG with this man?!!! She thought, but then he said ''cause I'm a DOCTOR!''
''Well, that's GREAT!'' Yelled Cara, surprised.
''Well, I think I o' ta get started on tha' ankle o' yours, then!'' ''THANKS!'' Yelled Cara, but he'd already gone inside.

He brought out a first-aid-kit and set to work. Just minutes later, Cara was testing her ankle, the doctor had put it in a special cast made for ankles. SHE COULD WALK AGAIN! But there was still one problem, she couldn't bike because of the cast! But the doctor insisted that he'd give her a ride home.....
Cara arrived home safely to a worried mum and dad and had to explain why she took so long and what happened.

Hannah went for a walk in a forest for exercise. She left a trail of coloured feathers so she wouldn't get lost. Hannah had a party to go to. It meant a lot to her because it was the first time she was invited to her friend's sleepover birthday party and she was very excited. Hannah walked into the forest slowly the same thing was going around in her head "what if a cat jumps out?" which scared her because she was scared of cats because once her friend Jess's cat bit her so badly that she had to go hospital and couldn't use the hand for a month.

At last Hannah reached the heart of the forest. She turned around and screamed 'the feathers are gone!" What was she going to do? She was 100% sure that she left them there. She was never going to make it in time for the party.

Hannah looked everywhere for the feathers when suddenly she saw a cat fiddling with them. Hannah was so frightened she hid behind a bush, in the dirt which she hated. Hannah thought very hard and 2 minutes went by. Hannah knew she was going to be late for her friend's birthday party but she didn't have time to think about that now, she needed to think about getting home.

Hannah tried to throw a rock at the cat but her aiming was bad because she'd always hated sports. She also realised that punishing the cat would not take her back home. Hannah sat on a nearby rock and scrunched her fist untill her whole hand was completely white not even a little speck of red. All Hannah did from there was thinking but the problem was that she never thought straight.

Hannah looked at the cat's collar so she could blame the owner for getting her lost and then show off her stories and get all the attention in the future. On the collar it said Hannah's surname "Star" Hannah was confused maybe her mum had brought a new cat "but why?" thought Hannah, "I thought I had already told mum I was afraid of cats." Hannah started to walk in circles thinking what to do next.

Hannah walked up to the cat. It jumped into Hannah's arms.It looked at Hannah with its shiny green eyes."Oh...Oh...Kay" Hannah said. The cat jumped off Hannah's arms. The cat started walking Hannah followed it hoping
it would lead her home......It turned out that the cat did lead her home. Hannah asked her mum if her mum brought the cat. Her respond was a yes.
"why did you buy a cat when you know when I am afraid of cats"
Hannah asked.
"you've been afraid of cats for most of your life so I wanted to get you over it" Answered Hannah's mum
"well that answers a lot!" Hannah exclaimed.
Hannah made it in time for Jess's birthday party and always felt safe with her cat from that day.

One Small Step For A Man And One Giant Leap For Mankind. By Campbell.

Bob Spring had been training to go to the moon for months and couldn't mess up, because no-one had been to the moon and back before.But that was going to change. Bob walked to the space ship.

"Ok this is it Ground control, I am all strapped in and ready to go". Said Bob. Bob felt like a 5 year old getting a lollipop he could almost pinch his self to see if he is dreaming or not.
10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0 blast... Bob began to cry because he couldn't believe it.
"Bob you could just be the first human being to walk on the moon". Said commander. Many hours pass.
things were going just fine until...
"OH NO you need to get out of the spaceship now because there is a meteor heading your way" bellowed out the commander.
Bob was so fast he was as fast as a cheetah,he went straight to the escape hatch and drifted into space. And then he swam straight away from the spaceship then straight away as he turned around he saw the ship and the meteor right in front of his eyes collide into the ship. He was so sad he could almost cry. He thought he could make it,but now he definitely couldn't make it because his space ship had just exploded.

All he could hope for was for someone to come and save him.
"What happened". said Bob.
"Can you send up a ship because I am stuck here". said Bob.
"I am very sorry to tell you this we can try but it will take a whole day, but your oxygen tank won't last a whole day, sorry Bob. Said the ground control.
"Oh man this is the worst day ever". Said Bob

5. Bob was desperate for someone to come and save him, he had 24 hours left till he had no oxygen and then he'd die.He had to find a chance of getting back home.He wished he had never even came to the moon. "I hate myself". said Bob.
"Hey don't feel down, this is a one in a life time opportunity because you got to go to the moon and back,well maybe not back but you know what I mean. Said ground control.
"Thanks you really made me feel better." Said Bob.
"Your welcome'. Said ground control.
"That was supposed to be sarcasm". said Bob.

"I only have minimum time left on my oxygen tank, if only NASA was here right know they would get me home safe and sound."Why did I have to come to the moon. said Bob.
"because you wanted to be a superstar remember". said ground control.
"Oh right... well that was stupid. I might as well just give up".Said Bob.

'Trapped' by mick.

''HELP! ANYBODY! I'M TRAPPED! PLEASE, SOMEONE...''.Eoin was trapped in his hotel room, surrounded with metal doors, with all his luggage is in the hallway, no food and no drinks. Eoin's day was fine...then...not so fine, he got trapped! In his hotel room! If someone does not find him in time, Eoin's would be history! His phone is outside! He can't contact anyone!

Eoin was so exited! It was the day when Eoin starts his new job, rating hotels. For his new job he had to give out five stars, the first star is for good food service, the second for noise level, third star for the room space & design, 4th star is for good food and the 5th star for originality.Eoin was on his first hotel to rate! When Eoin got to his room, he had a room with damaged sprinklers, the hotels policy was to keep everyone safe, so the smoke alarm activates the sprinklers, the sprinklers activate the metal doors.That same day Eoin left his door open, at the same time, the neighbours were baking cookies, the smoke came in... the smoke alarm...BOOM!!! he knew that sound... the metal doors!!!

Eoin was trapped! He was starting to panic ''What is going on'' He said out loud. The metal doors were loud as they slammed to the ground.Eoin was trapped till night, without eating anything, and the thing was... he's alone, and still waiting for someone to come ''If the smoke alarm went, surely the firemen would've came, probably cause my alarm is broken'' thought Eoin in his head all night.

Eoin was still awake, looking for somewhere he could escape, he found nothing but he found a window that was not slammed with metal, he looked, but it was too high for him to climb out of. The sun started come luckily Eoin's door wa still open, and the lady from next door came in, she called for help!

Finally, the firemen were here, Eoin smashes the window and the firemen climbed through with there ladder.Eoin was too dizzy to go down the ladder so one of the men called a helicopter to bring them down, it actually worked!

The firemen got Eoin out safely, Eoin saw his mum rushing to him ''Oh my poor baby'' she said ''Mum your embarasing me'' replied Eoin ''Get the kid a drink'' said the chief ''and get me a flat white'' Anything else'' asked one of the men
''With marshmallows'' replied the chief, until another BOOM!!! another... hotel room with metal doors.
''Well, anyway'' said Eoin
''What'' said the chief

The life of Jennifer, By Angel.

Jenny's mother in-law didn't like Jenny. She wasn't from a rich family so Jenny was treated like a servant. "Come here Jenny why aren't the dishes washed? I told you to do them". Said the mother in-law. "Sorry mother I had a headache" replied Jenny, Jenny wished she could just live with her husband Jacob but Jacob wanted to take care of his mum. Suddenly the phone rang. Jacob wondered if it was about his job application. "Hello it's Nick from America, remember you applied for a job "Yes" said Jacob "I wanted to tell that you got a job in America you can join next week" That's great" said Jacob. Jacob had found a job in J- jays. Though Jacob already had citizenship Jenny's hadn't arrived yet. A week passed and it was time for Jacob to go "My citizenship hasn't come yet so how can I go"? asked Jenny "I'm sorry but your citizenship got cancelled" said Jacob in a low voice. Jenny felt sad when she heard that. She didn't want to leave Jacob but she had to stay with her mother in-law.
Months past and Jacob was still in America. Jenny was struggling doing the work for her mother in-law. One day Jenny was felling really sick "I think I can't do anything, maybe I'm getting a fever said Jenny to herself. "Why aren't you scrubbing the kitchen floor? I told you to clean it" said the mother in-law. "That's enough I'm getting out of here. You can live by yourself !" said Jenny in an angry voice and with that she left the house. While she was walking out of the house she called one of her friend and asked her "Could I please live at her house till Jacob comes back?" "Sure" her friend said.
In 2 months time Jacob came back from America. "Mum, I'm so happy to see you" said Jacob smiling happily. "Where's Jenny?" he asked "Well um... um... oh ya she ran off with our gardener" she lied. Suddenly Jacob felt anger towards Jenny. The mother only wanted Jacob to marry someone else who was rich. "Why would Jenny do that? I'm going to look for her" said Jacob and with that he ran out of the house to look for her.

Jacob was searching the whole town but he couldn't find the gardener. He sat down to have a drink. Suddenly he turned around and saw the gardener. He ran towards him and grabbed him by the neck and asked "Where's Jenny?".
"I don't know I saw her running out of the house because your mother and Jenny had a fight" Said the gardener trying to catch his breath. Jacob felt really sad that Jenny left he hated his mother now.

On the way home Jacob saw his beloved cousin Emily. He stopped the car and went up to her. "Hey Emily have you heard the bad news?" asked Jacob sadly.
"No" said Emily "What happened?"
"Well Jenny ran away because of my greedy mum and I have no idea where she is" said Jacob.
"Well today is your lucky day! Jenny is living with me right now"
"Really?" asked Jacob "Yes, come along I'll show you" said Emily. Jacob drove the car to Emily's house he was filled up with amazement. He stopped the car and went up to the door. Jenny opened the door. Jenny's eyes looked like a flash light hitting her eyes when she saw Jacob. "Oh Jacob it's so nice to see you" she said with tears in her eyes.
"I'm sorry my mother started a fight with you" said Jacob
"It doesn't matter anyway she is old now and she doesn't know what to say" said Jenny.
Days have passed and Jenny and Jacob bought a new house and lived together happily(away from the mother in-law of course). "Your visa got canceled" said Jacob lying. "Not again" said Jenny laughing. The End

One Crazy Bird by Becca

CRASH! "Oh no, it's broken something in the lounge!" He rushed into the lounge, and the sight inside made him stop in his tracks. Thinking back to the beginning of the day, Fred remembered how this had all started...

Fred was playing on the computer. He was supposed to be doing his chores, but he didn't care. His mum had gone out to do the shopping, so she couldn't tell him what to do. He was so engaged in the game he was playing he didn't notice when something flew in through the open window and landed on the kitchen bench. It saw the closed window on the other side of the room, in the bit that was Fred's lounge. Thinking it was open, the sparrow flapped its wings and took off, knocking over a vase. CRASH! Shards of purple and blue china flew through the air like razor-edged raindrops. Fred rushed into the kitchen and saw the sad, shattered remains of what had once been his mother's prize vase. "Oh no! Mum's gonna kill me!" he groaned. THUMP! "What was that?" His eyes wandered to the window and there he saw a little brown shape, lying on its back. It hopped to its feet and squawked at him. Suddenly it shot into the air and knocked over and entire shelf of glass ornaments. "I think it's a sparrow." Fred thought.

Fred panicked. "If I don't get this thing soon," He thought, watching it glide to the couch and rip up a pillow, "It's going to wreck the house!" He grabbed the thing nearest to his hand and threw it with all his might... before realizing it was a pillow. It missed the sparrow completely and landed in the sink. After throwing a couple more things he gave up. He decided he'd just open all the doors and windows, completely forgetting his mum was a writer, and she had left the bits of paper that made up her latest story lying around before going to do the shopping. The gale coming through the windows started making the paper blow around, so he had to close the windows before it blew out. Mum's story was scattered across the floor. Fred made a mental note to clean that up.

After a quick glance at the clock he realized he only had half an hour before his mum got home. He panicked and started running around in circles before thinking of a plan. "I'll just go into the garage, grab some birdseed and lure the sparrow outside with it." He said aloud. When he returned to the lounge after hearing something else break,the sight inside made him stop in his tracks, drop the box of birdseed and mutter "Oh, my gosh!" The lounge was a complete bombsite! Shards of vases, dinner plates and cups littered the floor along with torn fragments of his mum's story and ripped-up cushions were strewn across the couches.

The sparrow was perched atop a high shelf, staring at him with empty, black eyes, watching his frantic attempts to clean up the mess. Fred gritted his teeth, muttering, "at least I can finally get this mess cleaned up. No thanks to you!" He added, looking up at the bird and clenching his fists. "If you hadn't come here in the first place, none of this would have happened!" The bird returned his gaze and gave a "Chirp chirp!" Of protest. "Oh, come on, don't deny it!" Fred yelled. "You're the one who wrecked the house!" "Tweet." The bird replied. "Oh, I'm talking to a bird!" He cried, throwing up his arms. After that, both bird and Fred remained silent.

After another twenty minutes of cleaning, Fred heard the sound of a car coming up the driveway. "Mum's home!" Fred, exclaimed, but, looking down at the mess, his face fell as he realized he still had heaps more to clean up. He heard the car door closing and the door into the hallway opening... his mum's footsteps coming up the hallway... she was coming in through the door and she screamed. "AHHHHHHHH!!!!!" "Er... hi... Mum..." Said Fred feebly. "What... you... happened...?" She stammered, glaring at the mess as though willing it to disappear. Suddenly Fred burst into a rather bad explanation. "Mum... sparrow... vase... pillow... HELP!!!!" He stammered. His mother stared at him. "You know," She said, "I don't want to hear it. Just get this mess cleaned up." "O-Okay" Fred stammered. Then when his mother left the room, he glared up at the sparrow and said, " I hate you." "Tweet."
