be a gentlmen

At the bottom of the ocean lurked peculiar creatures. Amongst the opaque water there were fish with huge black eyes that hunted prey. Creepy crustaceans crawled along the seabed scavenging for food and a giant squid shot ink.

The Mermen swam towards the great hall and their queen. The Merpeople queen sat on her diamond encrusted throne. The queen was draped in priceless jewels such as rubies, sapphires and diamonds. The queen’s crown was the size of a soccer ball with every gem but rubies. “You will all compete in a competition and whoever wins gets to
be my king‘’ said the queen.

The first event was a 100m sprint swim.’”Bang’’ the starting pistol fired loudly. Five of the mermen raced as fast as a Lamborghini racing through the streets of Italy. Bostonia put his head down and ran through the finishing line to come first.

The second event was a test of strength. Liamina and Avana, the strongest and smartest mermen in the kingdom, had an arm wrestling contest to decide who would face Bostonia in the final. Liamina had an advantage due to his enormous muscles. Avana though was smarter and often used his tactical knowledge to beat his opponents.

It was a close match, Liamina was really close to getting Avana’s arm down, but Avana fought back by twisting Liamina’s wrist. However Lamina strength was too much for Avana and he eventually pinned his arm down.

The final showdown was between the fast Bostonia and the strong Liamina.The contest was to be decided by an obstacle course. There were three obstacles slippery ropes,  a rock wall and monkey bars. Bostonia lead, he heard a noise behind him he looked back. Liamina had fell off the slippery ropes and hurt himself. “Arghhhh” he screamed. Bostonia without a second thought went back and lifted him onto his shoulders. Bostonia carried the injured Liamina up the rock wall and across the monkey bars towards the finish line. Within sight of the finish line Liamina suddenly sprang from Bostonian's shoulders and swam like a torpedo to the finish. ‘I won, I won’ celebrated the cheat Liamina with a sneaky grin.

From the balcony emerged the queen with the king’s crown ‘’I declare the winner is Bostonia”. The crowd cheered loudly “yay”. The queen continued “Although Bostonia did not come first he demonstrated sportsmanship and kindness, let me present you your new king, Bostonia, Three cheers for the new king”. Bostonia was a fair and kind king and ruled the merpeople kingdom for fifty years.

The hooded girl


Once upon a time there lived in a certain village a little country girl, the prettiest creature was ever seen. Her mother was excessively fond of her; and her grandmother doted on her still more.

The girl skipped through the forest feeling anxious. The haunted forest was home to many creatures.The dense canopy blocked any light from the path she was taking and the only sound she could hear was the howling of wolves. The hooded girl was dressed in a blood red cape. Her hair was as black as obsidian and her eyes were as dark as black coffee.

In a clearing ahead of her she saw the familiar sight of her grandmother’s cottage.On the triangular roof sat an unstable chimney with a thin wisp of smoke coming out. The old dilapidated wooden cottage was a dark grey colour and was choked by ivy.

As she went in the old cottage. The hooded girl said ‘’Hi grandma I have your treats for you’’. Then she walked into her Grandma’s bedroom. Lying in her grandmother’s bed was a wolf dressed unconvincingly as her grandma. The hooded girl laughed as she easily knew it wasn’t her grandma but a wolf in a funny dress. The dress coloured pink, purple blue and just a little bit of green barely covered the wolf’s fur. “Where’s grandma, wolf?” The wolf snarled “In my belly”

The hooded girl flew into a rage. She went into the kitchen and grabbed a butcher knife laying on the oak chopping board (Granny was famous for her homemade sausages, her pork and cheese bangers won the competition for first prize at the world cooking competition).

The woodsman came in the cottage and saw grandma on her bed, dead with dark red blood everywhere. Then the woodsman saw the wolf cut in half like a furry sleeping bag. The hooded girl was just standing there “I didn’t do anything” she said but blood was everywhere, all over her body. The woodsman saw the telephone and rang the police. The hooded girl saw police cars approaching and helicopters circling. It was like she was stranded on an island with nowhere to go.

Then the police officer came in and saw the whole cottage covered in blood.The tall muscular officer had a shaved head and a shocked expression on his face.seeing the weapon in the girl’s hand he command put your weapon down “Put your hands behind your head and get on your knees’’. The hooded girl stood still and lifted the knife. The officer drew out his taser and fired.

Two weeks later in a courtroom the hooded girl faced a stern looking judge. “Red Riding Hood you have shown no remorse for your crimes, you have been found guilty of murder, you leave me no alternative but to sentence you to life in prison, officers take her into custody”.

So now you have heard this story you will understand the moral ‘you should never react with violence’.
