I would help the poor, execute the murderers and make sure everyone had power. Also make the school be a better place and have everyone be wealthy and educated.

He picked it up and looked at it. He started to go to his dad when the box teleported him to a different place. He saw no one but he found one person. John decided to ask the man where they were. The man said they were in a magical land of which a mean man ruled and that is why no one but the shady looking old man was there because they were all in the ruler’s castle working as slaves.

Dragon’s in a Girl Once there was a beautiful girl that lived in a normal city. This girl was named Liona which meant a lion. Liona’s mother wanted her girl to have bravery. Heart. Liona grew up to be a wonderful daughter. One day Liona had a stroll with her pet rabbit and saw a girl. She had wings, a yellow skirt and a yellow bikini top. And an amazing hairstyle. At first Liona did not realise the girl was fighting an ogre. And then the girl aimed this . . . sort of light . . . and shot at the ogre. The ogre dodged it and got the yellow girl down on the ground. So Liona stepped in. The ogre tried to get a hold of Liona but a force-field surrounded her and a fiery glowing dragon came out of her and made the ogre retreat into a portal. 23

The girl thanked Liona and told her that her name was Stella and that she was a fairy from another realm, a world that she ruled as Princess. Stella also mentioned that she went to a fairy school called Alfia. Stella asked Liona if she went to Alfia too. But Liona said she could not go, she was not a fairy or even a princess. Stella asked Liona if she could take her to Liona’s parents and she did. Stella asked Liona’s parents if she could come to Alfia. Liona’s parents had a talk and said yes. SUMMAH-ROSE, YEAR 5

Break and Enter A robber broke into the house and said in a whisper, “I gonna get all the goodies from this rich family while they’re all sleeping.” The family woke up. They looked in their baby’s room. They looked in her pink cot and she wasn’t there. They looked at the window. It was smashed open. They didn’t know what to do. There was bashing and banging downstairs. They went to look. When they went into the kitchen he was hiding in the cupboard and he didn’t have the baby. The mum and the dad said, “you can have all our goodies but can you tell us where our little baby girl is? So they made a deal but he said, “Don’t tell anyone, okay?” “Okay” said the dad.

She had a stick which her father used for killing animals for dinner. The woman had hot, smoky hair. Every morning she woke up and looked in the water.
