The Big Discovery
By: Owen van der Zwan
Today I am traveling to see the Ziggurat at Ur. The Ziggurat at Ur is a place that sumerians preyed at. When I got to the airport we saw a sign, the sign said; discount prices to iraq! sign up now. then we got a snack, had a bacon burger, which it is basically a burger with bacon on top. On the plane ride, I played a game called Knights of Babylon.
I almost finished getting the golden dagger from the game when the flight attendant said “Turn off all electronics, we will be landing shortly.” I looked out the window and saw a huge sandy desert.
The desert was flat with two long rivers running smack down the middle of it. My heart was beating like a hummingbird's wings. “I can see the Ziggurat from here!” I said.
we got off the plane, we walked outside of the mini airport. Then we took a bus and went to our hotel. The next morning we took another bus to the Ziggurat in the famous site of Ur. Suddenly I fell through the ground and into what seemed to be a tomb.
I started walking around, and on a bright blue table I found a lapis lusi lyre and a golden dagger, just like the one from my game! Then, suddenly a bunch of monsters started coming out of the doorway.
I started chopping them down with the dagger but it wasn't strong enough so I started playing the lyre and they all went to sleep.
A ladder appeared where I fell and I climbed up. The hole closed up and everything was normal. I asked my mom “were you worried that i'd been away for so long?” And she said “you only have been gone for a second.”
I then realized that time had stopped when I fell into the hole. When we returned home, my teacher was telling us that Noah’s ark was found by a little boy!
“Hey! I found the royal tombs of Ur in Iraq.” I said, Everyone started laughing. “Prove it!” someone said while still laughing.
I showed them the lyre and dagger that I had found in the tomb. The next day, on the headlines of the newspaper read “boy discovers the royal tombs of Ur”
The next day I was called up to make a speech. “ I donate all of the riches found in the tombs to the museum of natural history”
