We were just playing in the rainforest when it started to rain, so we ran out of the rainforest. By accident, my brother stood on a tiger’s tail and that was when everything started. The tiger chased us. We were nearly out of the rainforest when we saw that the tiger was blocking our escape. Luckily, my mum brought some sausage with her. She took off the wrapper and threw the sausage into the far bushes. That got the tiger’s attention, he ran after it. We went out of the rainforest just in time.

An unlucky day
It was a beautiful Sunday when Lucas was making sandwiches for their class because tomorrow his class is having a party and everyone has to bring a plate of food. After finishing making them, Lucas called Jimmy over because he wanted Jimmy to try his sandwiches but when he hit the call button, he realized that his phone’s battery was flat.

Lucas decided to bring the sandwiches to Jimmy by hand so he rushed to Jimmy’s house and on the way back, the energetic wind blew into Lucas’s face and it started raining. Lucas hurried home but he was too slow and he got soaking wet. When he got home, he got a fever and now he can’t go to school tomorrow. What will Lucas do with the sandwiches?
Yesterday, I went for a picnic with my family in the forest. When I was walking alone in the forest, I saw a strange statue. I wondered that why he hadn’t got a face, hadn’t got head and legs. But I didn’t just think that. I wanted to know he was a statue or a person. So, I asked: “Who are you?” He didn’t answer. I asked again and louder: “Who are you?” Then he answered: “Hello, I’m a death. Nice to meet you. Do you want to be like me?” He was a death. I was afraid then. I didn’t want to be like him. I ran away. He didn’t follow me. He just stood there and laughed. I ran to my parents and told them the story. “Daughter, you’re imagining. That’s not true. Don’t be so worrying!” They said. They didn’t believe me, but they still happy because I was safe. I promise that I will never go deep into the forest again.
