“Oh, I can’t wait for tonight, having our very own fireworks!”I exclaimed, as me and my mother got out of the car. It was a rainy day, as we went up the street I splashed into a puddle. As we walked into the shop, I saw Halloween masks, colourful toys and so many things. As I looked around I found the fireworks in these beautiful colourful boxes. My mother meanwhile was looking at the floating lanterns. She picked up two boxes and came to look at the fireworks. After a while we decided which one to get. As we got up to go pay, I saw a little basket full of glowing sticks. I asked my mum if we could get some
for tonight so we could all see each other. As I was picking out six of them and putting them next to all the other stuff, I imagined what tonight would be like, the fireworks exploding in the sky, and the floating lanterns with the warm flame inside, and all of us watching them float away.
