The Cat Who Dislikes Ice

10/02/21
by Aliya

Once upon a time there was a cat who loved to roam around. She walked on every fence and climbed every tree in the neighbourhood.

And every day she came to our garden and play with the leaves. She was running after the shadows and catching the frogs around the pond.

Until one day the weather forecast said the temperature was going to drop below the freezing point. The pond was covered with ice.

Because of that the cat came and walked on the pond. She looked like skating on ice, but she was running after the twigs in the wind and sliding along the way.

And because of that I listened to the news and the weather forecast to find out if the weather was getting warmer.

Until finally the temperature rose above the freezing point and the ice was melting. The cat ran on the pond and fell into the water! She looked so shocked and wet and was shivering, but quickly she leaped out of the water and climbed up a tree to dry her fur.

And ever since, I wait for the cat to come and play on the pond when the water freezes, but the cat is afraid of ice now.

 

 

 

My School Friends

Once upon a time there were three next-door neighbours. Their children went to school together in the morning and in the afternoon their parents took turns to walk them home from school.

And everyday they played together.

Friends - TTLcic

Until finally schools closed when the virus came. They were happy at first. But people were wearing masks. The children were not allowed to play together. It isn’t like having a holiday or going away for a vacation.

And every day it is boring because we can not play together. And our parents do not allow us to watch television. I look for my friends when we take the dog to the park, but we do not play together.

And because of that all the children are playing with their brothers and sisters. I play with my little sister.

Because of that my sister drew pictures in my notebooks with her crayons. She tore pages from my books.

Until finally I stopped doing homework with my sister.

And ever since I miss playing with my friends and my teacher at school.

 

 

  

Master Chu and the Dragon

by Safiya

Once upon a time there was a dragon who became friends with a human.

And everyday they exhanged pleasantries and talked about things in their lives.

And one day they were playing in the street kicking a ball. The human said: Have you achieved any of your goals? And the dragon answered: No, because I'm still on the streets and not looking for the better things in life.

The dragon was friendly. 

And because of that the human was sad. He thought for a little while and then replied: I didn't either, I wanted to become a millionaire but I'm still living with my mum!

And because of that both of them got sad. But the dragon said: There's no point in getting sad. How old are you? And the human replied: 42! And the dragon said: That's 13 in dragon years! I'm 67, so in human years I'm not that old either!

Until finally they were laughing again. The human said: I've got a great idea, why don't we go to college together and hopefully we might be millionaires? They talked until the dragon was convinced he wasn't too old to go to college. And the dragon said: That's a great idea, yeah, we're going to college together!

They decided to go to college.

And ever since they have graduated from college and started a magical business together, but they aren't millionaires yet.  

 

 

 

The Fox and the Squirrel

by Aylin

Once upon a time there was a fox and squirrel who came to our garden in the summer. They were digging into our flower pots and smelling everything. If they found something they liked, they took it.

And everyday the squirrel was visiting the garden in the morning and the fox usually arrived after dark. They didn’t see each other.

And one day my sister didn't finish eating her sandwich and left her plate under the big tree in the garden.

The squirrel

So because of that when the squirrel came in the morning she took some of the left-over and then climbed up the tree.

So because of that when the fox came there wasn’t any food left. But the fox smelled the food and waited under the tree till the morning.

Until finally the squirrel and the fox met under the tree. But they could not become friends because the fox was hungry and wanted to eat the squirrel.

The big tree

And ever since the squirrel and the fox have been chasing each other.

 

 

 

The Tent in the Garden

by Jayla

Once upon a time we built a tent in our garden because everyone caught an illness called Corona and we were not allowed to go on holiday.

And everyday I played in the tent with my toys. My sister brought her coloring books and crayons. Sometimes we ate our lunch in the tent and took naps there.

And one day we were playing in the tent, but mum called us to come inside. We left our things in the tent and quickly ran to the house for dinner.

The tent in the garden

So because of that we forgot to bring our toys and crayons inside and left them in the tent.

So because of that in the morning when we went to the tent to play, we could not find our things. No toys! No crayons!

Until finally we were crying and went to ask mum if she knew who took them from the tent. Mum was looking around the garden and under the bushes. "There," she said, "look, are these your toys?" There were teeth marks on the crayons and they were broken. "The fox and the squirrel," she said, "wanted to play with your toys and crayons!"

The fox wanted to play

And ever since we are more careful. We washed the toys and crayons with soap and also washed our hands with soap because the fox and the squirrel touched everything. We don't leave anything outside anymore because we might lose them again.

And every day the boy would prank his little sister.

 

He played pranks on his little sister.

Until one day a witch kidnaped the boy.

And because of that the girl pushed the witch into a fire.

And because of that the girl rescued the boy.

Until finally the witch escaped from the fire because, as you know, witches never die. But, the witch never came back!

 

The witch left and never came back.
