Love stories

Love Stories, by class 8th C Beauty and the Beast Once upon a time, there was an ugly monster and nobody liked him. He lived in a big, lonely castle in the mountains. One day, when he was in the forest, he saw a pretty princess, called Bella, who asked him: - Hi! I’m lost. Can you help me to find my sister’s house? She is little red riding hood… - Hi! Of course! I´m impressed… Nobody had ever talked to me before! Aren´t you afraid of me? - No, you look really nice. - Thanks, but you are very far from your sister´s house, it takes one week to get there. You can stay at my castle. On their way to the castle, they met Mickey, Minnie Mouse and Pluto who were having a picnic. Then, they also saw Snow White, Prince Charming and the seven dwarfs. When they finally arrived to the castle, the monster went to prepare an amazing and romantic dinner for Bella. At dinner, they got to know each other well and they fell in love. Since Bella was in love with the monster, she decided to live with the monster forever and they got married and lived happily ever after.

Love stories

The bread, the butter and the ham They made the pinky promise with their little fingers, and the bread and the butter promised that they would be best friends in secret. … They kept meeting in secret, every day, for two weeks, near the river. They became best friends. But one day, in the evening, the bread and the butter met like they used to do every day, but they didn´t know that they were being chased by the ham. While they were talking, the ham appeared from behind a tree and screamed: - ‘I KNOW IT! I have been chasing you for one week, and now I have a proof to show to the king of my kingdom.’ The ham was holding a camera in one of its hand, and added: - ‘I have recorded everything, and now, I’m going to show it to everyone!’, the ham laughed with an evil look, and started running while it was holding the camera, but then the ham fell into the river. - ‘Please! Please, help me!’, the ham screamed. The butter and the bread saved the ham. The ham was so grateful, that he didn´t tell anyone about the bread&butter friendship, and the butter and the bread forgave the ham. … Until today, those 3 creatures (the butter, the bread and the ham) keep being best friends… And they live happily!!!

Once upon a time, there was a little ham that lived in a lovely bakery. In the same bakery lived a sweet bread and a butter that was a bit plump. They hated each other, but they had to see each other every single day. They had a bad relationship, just because their kingdoms started the worst war ever, so that meant they had to hate each other, even if they didn´t know each other.… But one day, the butter found the bread crying, he was worried, so, even though it wasn´t allowed, he approached and asked: - ‘Hey, what’s wrong with you?’, the butter asked. And the bread answered, ‘I just hate this war! I just want us all to be friends!’ - ‘Me too…’- said the butter, a little sad. They remained in silence for some time. -‘ You´re pretty nice, actually.’, said the bread. - ‘You too! Do you want to be my friend?’, asked the butter. - ‘I really want, but… it isn´t allowed…’, said the bread. - ‘I know, but if you want, we will be friends secretly. Nobody will know, so…’, said the butter. - ‘ Nobody can be angry with us!’, the bread added and he looked happy. - ‘Yeap! So… Friends?!’, the butter asked excitedly. - ‘Secret friends.’, the bread added and smiled.

THE 8TH D STORIES The magic book There once was a girl named Thalia who loved reading. She was sixteen at the time, and she was studying Literature at Oxford University. One day, while she was reading, she started to feel dizzy and she fainted. When she woke up, the book opened a magic portal which was inviting her to come in. She went through the portal, and as she did that, she also entered the story that she was reading, which was Romeo and Juliet. Thalia played an important part in the story and she actually acted very well. It was an amazing experience! Then, she came back to reality, specifically her room. One night, she felt like days had passed since the last time she had been there. The girl was so confused that she went straight to bed. In the next morning, Thalia was doing her exam about Romeo and Juliet and she was worried, because she found it very easy compared to her colleagues. Later on, when she received her exam result, and she couldn't believe her luck: she got 100%. Nowadays, she is still confused about all that, but she must thank the magic portal and the book... Who says books aren't helpful? Afonso Salazar, Andreia Peixoto, Beatriz Crispim

Oh, dear Doc! One day, I was at the hospital, and while I was watching TV, I saw a nurse crying. I went near her and asked her what had happened. She looked at me and told me the story of her day. ‘I arrived at the hospital, and supposedly it was going to be a normal day, until I saw the super sexy doctor Jorge. I wanted to impress him and the only way to do it was to show him my reanimation skills. Then, all of a sudden, I saw an unconscious patient and I had to do it, in front of the mega sexy doctor Jorge. I tried to reanimate the patient, but she didn`t open her eyes. Then, out of the blue, I just heard the super mega sexy doctor Jorge saying: She is dead! When I heard him, I could only but run away. And this was the end.’

On a full moon night, all the scouts were together around the fire pit. Among them were Marcus, Jessie and Monica.

One of them, went to try and find out where that noise was coming from, while the others were waiting for him. The clock pointers kept ticking, and there was no news about Marcus, who was taking too long in the wood. But suddenly, Monica and Jessie heard a strong scream from his friend. As soon as they heard that scream, they immediately started running to the wood to find him. As they arrived there, they saw Marcus running away from a completely mad and fool man. They grabbed stones and wooden sticks, and started to fight. They won the fight, but his friend had run away so fast, that he had disappeared. They went back to their tents feeling tired and confused with all the things that had happened and did not suspect of Marcus’s behaviour. When they arrived to their tents to get some rest, their friends were all there staring at them and laughing at all that story. Marcus had played a prank to scare his best friends Jessie and Monica. The girls did not like it, and asked a lot of questions about who that fool was, and Marcus told the girls, that the fool was the Scouts’ Instructor, who was wearing a mask. The girls accepted Marcus’s apologies, and everything ended well. It had been an unforgettable Scouts’ Weekend for Marcus, Jessie and Monica. João Canteiro, Inês Grácio, Beatriz Madeira, João Silva

Alex started screaming. When the other robbers heard him, they ran away. Now, there were one robber who was unconcious and three left standing, but one of them had a gun. The four friends were stil standing. However, Alex was almost down because of the unbearable pain. Then, Mara received the information that someone had called the cops, and she warned Julio and Helena. The pollice were on their way, but that was when the robber who had the gun shot Helena on the leg. Mara and Julio panicked. The shopping center was empty. Finally, the pollice came there. The robbers tried to find an escape, but they forgot that Mara and Julio were still there, so they had a problem to solve. The robbers could not find an escape. So, one of them used Julio as a hostage. It was at that moment, that Alex stood up and shot the other two robbers with the gun that he had taken from the robber who was unconcious. The cops entered the movie theater and arrested the robbers and everything ended up fine. Alex and Helena started dating and Julio and Mara … well, nobody knows where they are or what they are doing. Some people say they are in London, some people say they are working for the Chicago pollice, but no one really knows where they are ….. Well, this is the end !!!!

The Magic Turkey I

got a magic lamp for my birthday, like the one of Aladdin. One night, I rubbed the lamp and a magic turkey appeared. He said with his big neck: - Glu, glu, glu what do you want for yourself? - I want a t-shirt from the brand new store Pesadão Life Style!- I said amazed. - Glu, glu, glu, there you have it. Now, you have two more wishes. - Soooo... I want to be a bodybuilder and have large and strong muscles like Bambam. - Glu, glu, glu, and…? - My final wish is to be the richest man in the world. - Glu, glu, glu, ok. On the next day, when I woke up, I was using my Pesadão t-shirt, I had lots of muscles, but I wasn't feeling anything different for being the richest man in the world. I left home and for my surprise I was alone. I couldn't see anybody just some homeless in a street near my home and then I realised... I was the richest man in the world.

Strange happenings I walked into my house and everything was completely different – furniture, décor, all had changed. I searched

my house. All my money was gone. I went to the police and they told me that it was going to take some time, until they found the thief. I stayed at a hotel, because the police was searching for evidence at my apartment, and two days later, when I finally managed to go back to my apartment, the law agents told me that my money was under my television set, and that nothing was missing. After hearing that, I was very surprised, curious and relieved. A few days later, a policeman came to my house and told me that some kids had vandalized my furniture. After counting my money, I found out that some of it was missing. I asked the kids that had vandalized my place about it, but they said they didn´t know anything about it. Until today, I still don´t know where my money is. And I may never know what really happened.

How'd you get here?? - Well, it's a long story... - said the fairy. - I have time... - So, we wanted to go to the dragon's party, but our unicorns ran out of magic dust. Because of that, the fairy, who found us on the way there, gave us a ride here. - said the ghost. - OK, makes sense! So, do you want a ride to the next stop? - Sure! - OK, let´s go, then!

My own magic lamp I got a magic lamp for my birthday, like the one of Aladdin. One night, I rubbed the lamp, and a little fairy appeared. I just couldn´t believe it! Then, the fairy said to me: - Hi, little girl! What´s your name? - Catherine, and you are… - Oriane. Nice to meet you! I´m here to concede you three wishes! What do you want, Catherine? I thought about it for a little while, but I had no idea. - I want to be happy with someone…- that was the first wish. - OK. What else? - And… I want to be healthy, too. - So… You have one wish left! I didn´t know what to say… I didn´t want to be selfish and make another wish for myself. So, I realized that the happiness of my family was more important than our own. - I want my family to be happy! - OK, your wishes are going to come true! - Oh, thank you so much! Today, I have a great family and I´m a happy person, with love and health! And I´m very thankful to the fairy Oriane!

The wave He was digging in his garden when he found a bunker. He got in and he saw it was completely empty. He was so

disappointed that he went home. He went to the living room, turned on the TV set and saw that there was a tsunami alert. He ran to get everything he could find that would help him survive and went to the bunker he had found earlier. Some time passed until he found a secret button in the wall, and when he clicked it, a small hatch opened from the floor and from it rose a pillar with a small red button. He clicked it and then noticed that the sound of the alarms was gone. He went outside and saw a giant wave completely still. After a moment looking at that completely amazing and impossible view, he started running to his car, and, like everyone else, he drove to the mountains and watched the wave as it slowly continued falling.

The power of imagination

The Memes City The little girl was playing in the garden. She walked through the bushes and entered another dimension. Suddenly, she realized that she wasn't in the garden where she was playing at anymore. All she could see was a city with some people, but they were not ordinary people. They were acting strangely, as if they were crazy. She started to walk in the streets. She was very scared. Without knowing what to do, she started to cry in the middle of the street. An old man, with old and poor clothes and wearing no shoes, saw the girl crying and went in her direction. He got closer and asked her what was going on . She said that she didn't know where she was. The man, a little worried about the situation, asked her how she had got there. The girl told him what had happened, and the man took her quickly from the middle of the street, because he realized that she wasn't one of them; that she wasn't a meme!. She wasn't supposed to be there. She asked him why he had done that. Very scared said, the old man said where they were: it was the Meme's City and humans, who were of course no memes, couldn't be there. He also said that memes had a certificate with their names and their picture, and why they were memes. He also said that, at night, the Meme's Police went to check all around the city for the certificates of each meme and those who didn't have one, or who did have it, but didn't match with the people who had it, were going to jail! The girl already knew what was a meme, because she had seen some videos on Youtube at home of the persons that she admired and who had become memes for things that they had done. She asked him how she could get out of there. He said that the only way to do it was to lie down on a magic bed, but that magic bed, called "The bed", was on the other side of the city and it took a whole day’s walk to get there. So, they started to walk as soon as they could to get there as soon as possible. While they were walking, the little girl was watching the memes. She noticed a guy who was selling "Pesadão Life Style" t-shits, screaming "Pesadããããão, Pesadããããão" to sell his t-shirts easliy and fast. She noticed a very big guy too, who was doing push-ups that was always screaming "Rrraaawww , aqui é bodybuilder" or "Birlll, mais uma". She laughed a lot with the 11

things that they were doing and the old man was smiling, too, because of her laughter. They weren't just watching the memes, they were talking to each other, too. With their conversations, they got to know each other better, like their lives, their thoughts, their names and all that stuff. The old man got to know her name, that was Quitada, and Quitada got to know his name too, that was Digo. Night came. The Meme's Police were coming, so, Digo had to hide Quitada in a safe place, where the Meme's Police couldn't find her. The Meme's Police arrived and asked Digo for his certificate. It was all going right, when the dog of the Meme's Police started to bark. Digo, very scared, didn't know what to say and suddenly, without thinking, Digo said that it was his smell, because he hadn't taken a shower for about a week. The Meme's Police asked if he was sure about that. He said he was, and they believed his word, so, they left. Digo and Quitada were safe, so, Quitada left her hiding place and they continued their journey to get to "The bed". Finally, they arrived to the place where "The bed" was, but they noticed that Quitada would need a certificate to lie down on " The bed". Quitada began to cry, because she hadn't no certificate, but Digo had an idea. He gave her his clothes and his certificate for Quitada to come back home. Quitada refused, because she knew that Digo would be arrested and Digo knew that too. Digo insisted and Quitada finally accepted it, but she was very worried and sad about Digo's future. Quitada showed the certificate to the Guardian of "The bed" (called Rebelão Parceiro) and right before she lied on the bed, she said to Digo with a smile: - Bye, my only friend... And she lied on the bed. Suddenly, she opened her eyes. She was on her bed. It had all been a dream. She could not believe it. It had all seemed so real to her. She started to cry, because she realized that Digo had never existed, that Digo was all in her head, that the only friend that she had was nothing more, nothing less than her own imagination, and Digo, who lived in the Meme's City.

Sintra 2017

No nosso ponto de vista, a visita de estudo a Sintra, no dia 8 de maio, organizada pelos professores de Português, para cinco turmas do 11.º ano, foi menos interessante da parte da manhã, porque o roteiro queirosiano se tornou repetitivo, em relação à leitura e estudo da obra, feita nas aulas, com alguns pormenores desnecessários e um resumo cansativo feito por uma guia pouco cativante. No entanto, a parte da tarde, com a visita guiada ao deslumbrante Palácio de Monserrate, outrora casa de férias da família Thomas Cook, parque e jardins com espécies exóticas, revelou-se muito mais aprazível e enriquecedora. Apreciámos a construção arquitetónica, os espaços interiores com vários estilos (árabe, neo-gótico e indiano), embora com alguma falta de mobiliário. Gostamos especialmente dos jardins, com vegetação rara, fontes, lagos e jardins de gosto romântico. O percurso pedestre revelou-se um pouco cansativo, dado o movimento e o número de turistas existentes no centro histórico. Para concluir, consideramos que este tipo de visitas contribuem imenso para aprofundar conhecimentos, mas também para melhorar as relações professores-alunos. 11ºH
