Stranded



Never in my life had I thought that I’d end up here. On an island with my friend Lee. I remember the night before. The plane that I was on sunk into the ocean. Me and Lee escaped with our lives. But we’ve never been stranded before, except when it came to Minecraft, so our survival skills weren’t that weak.

We knew that at night there were these things that would come and go for the kill. After all, there was this cave with zombies in it.

We got started straight away. There was only one tree there, so I had to make the most of the opportunity. After 20 painful tree cutting hours, I finally got the wood. I made some wooden planks, to use later on.

Since there was only one tree, our house had to be made of dirt, as there were tons of it. It went well, until we got to the roof. The dirt kept falling down, so I went to got some clay. Lee used some of the planks to make a pickaxe.

Lee came back with enough cobblestone to make a furnace. I came back with lots of clay. But we had a problem. We hadn’t got anything to burn the clay, except for the wood.

I ran outside, looking for any more trees. None. When it seemed like we’d never use the precious wood again, I saw a sapling. If I planted it, then it’d grow into another tree. I saw another sapling.

There were 3 of them, so that meant that we would have 3x the wood. After planting them, I ran to Lee and told him the news. So we cooked the clay, and came out with bricks. We finished the roof by 5:30 p.m. The sun was going down.

Lee decided to make some beds, so he went out to the sheep, and started to tear off their wool. I used some sand to make glass. Now, we could watch the sun set, and we could know when it was safe to go outside.

I used the remaining wooden planks(6 of them), to make a door. Lee came back. “Hey uh..” He exclaimed, “The sheep ran away. I’ve only got enough wool for one bed.”
“Damn! Who’s gonna stay up and guard the house!?”
“What do you mean? You said that if there were enough, then we’d both sleep.”
“I mean that we’d go to sleep with swords in our hands.”
“Ooooh.”

Lee jumped into the bed.
“I’m sleepy. You guard the house.”
I glared angrily at Lee. But Lee was in the bed, so I had no choice but to protect the house. I walked out, and looked at the cave. I was trembling. Was this a good idea? Then, I heard a stomp. It got louder. And louder. And louder. And lou--. It turned out to be a cow. I did a facepalm. Scared of a cow? Crazy.

But then a zombie ran out.
“EEP!” I screamed in horror. I threw the sword right at the zombie. It fell on the ground. As I picked up the sword, all the zombies ran out at me. I ran up a hill. The zombies had cornered me.

The sun came up just in time. For some reason, the zombies hated the sun. Maybe they were vampires. Then, a slow zombie got set on fire. It was squealing, but I didn’t want to help it. After all, it tried to kill me.The zombie died right in front of the cave.

“Suffer.” I said.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I walked back to the house. Lee was busy making a pumpkin pie. “I found a pumpkin, egg, and some sugar cane.
“Cool! Can I have some I asked.
“Sorry,”
“What do you mean, sorry?”
“You don’t deserve it.” At that moment I went angry.
“FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU--!!!!”
“Whoa dude calm down,”
“I DESERVE THAT PIE MORE THAN YOU DO!! WHO RISKED THEIR LIFE TRYING TO PROTECT YOU!!?? HUH!?”
“Oh, no-one.”
“FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU--!!!”
“Look man I’m sorry!”
“Really?”
“Okay, the pie’s your’s.”
“AWWW YEAH!” I gobbled the pie up. It was delicious. After breakfast, I took Lee the the cave.
“Pretty freaky, eh?” I asked Lee. He agreed. Should we walk in? Or should we not? That was the new question. I walked in. I had plenty of torches, and the sword that I used. It wasn’t that scary, the cave. In fact, I even found some iron! But as I was getting the goods, A zombie ran at me.

I searched for my sword, and I saw a zombie pick it up.
“WHY DID I THROW MY SWORD LIKE THAT WHEN THE IRON CAME!??!” I screamed. When it seemed like I’d get slain, Lee came for me. He shot an arrow at the zombies. That made them even angrier, but they were further away.
“Dude, c’mon! Run out the cave!” Lee yelled.
“Gladly!”

For some reason, I knew that trouble was still to come. I was right. The sun had gone down when we were in the cave, so when we came out the zombies kept following.
“So,” I asked. “Any bright idea’s?”
“Nope. Not one.”
“I’ve got one.”
“What?”
“RUN!” We ran so fast that it made Usain Bolt look like a rock. But the zombies didn’t give up up. They ran at the door, trying to break it.
“Any other bright idea’s?” Lee asked.
“Either die hiding, or live mining.”
“Let’s mine!”
“Agreed!” And we went all the way down. Then, we hit a cave. There were zombies. Now, me and Lee were stuck. Zombies everywhere. Nowhere to go.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So what did we do? We had nothing. The zombies ran at us. I was almost paralyzed with fear.

“What now?” Lee asked desperately. I looked down. Of course! We had to dig straight down. I told Lee, and he immediately went down. I followed. The zombies did as well, but by then the fall was too great for anything to survive.
“YAY!” Lee cried.
“We did it!” We were overjoyed. I hugged Lee in relief. Then, something caught my eye. Gold.

“Lee, look behind you!”
“I thought there weren’t any zombies...GOLD!! Let’s get it!”
“WAIT!!”
“What’s wrong?”
“Our pickaxes aren’t strong enough.” We both looked at our pickaxes. A tear ran down Lee’s cheek.
“C’mon,”Lee said sadly, “let’s go.

I felt sad for Lee. Going through all that trouble just to find out that we couldn’t get gold. Then, I remembered something. When we in the cave, I got iron. We could use it to make an iron pickaxe, and get the goods.

I told Lee, and the his pupils went from brown to green money signs.
“Are you alright?” I asked. Lee didn’t answer. He just ran to the gold area.
“I’m gonna be rich!!” Lee yelled. I did a facepalm. We didn’t even make the iron pickaxe yet.

“WAIT A MINUTE!!” Lee screamed.
“This is a pickaxe of stone! You lied to me!”
“We haven’t even MADE the pickaxe yet. Stop whining.” Lee climbed up, and when he got to the stairs, I called to Lee. He turned around. A zombie had a sword and it ran at Lee. He took out the stone pickaxe, and used it to fight. Lee was the better fighter, and it seemed like he’d win. He did. The zombie ran away.

Lee came back inside, but the he ran at me. My eyes followed him. Then, SHUNK! The zombie Lee fought went round to stab me, but Lee sacrificed himself. But because of that, I was in so much trouble.

A zombie with a sword ready to kill. My only help had sacrificed himself, leaving me alone. Defenceless.
“Lee’s lucky that he’s in the afterlife!” I muttered.
The zombie walked closer to me. I didn’t know what to do. Then I looked at the furnace. Then the chest. Maybe I could shove the zombie in the furnace and hide in the chest. No. That wouldn’t work. The zombie had a sword.

Then I looked at the crafting table. The iron pickaxe! It was lying there when the zombie came to stab me. I picked it up, and then it was like one of those action movie sword-fighting scenes. Except I had a pickaxe.

Luckily for me, the zombie had my wooden sword, and soon enough the sword broke. The zombie looked like it was begging for mercy. I felt no mercy at all. I took the zombie to the furnace, and shoved it in.

“You kill my friend,” I said angrily, “I take your life.”

When the next day rolled around, I was slowly walking around the island. I don’t think I could last another night. Then, I heard a boat. My head spun around to the approaching boat.

It was getting closer. And closer. Then, I saw 2 people. My friend Vaifoa. We first met on Minecraft, and now I see him come to my rescue. I took a breath of relief. Time to go home.

But then something bad happened. A stupid squid came mindlessly up and broke the boat. I ran to save my friend. When I got him out of the water, I told him of what happened recently.

He was shocked. I turned back to Vaifoa. The squid was on in head. I helped take it off. But then the island shook.
“What was that!?” Vaifoa asked.
“Probably that active volcano.”
“WHAT!? You never told me!”
“Well hey! I only noticed the volcano now!”
“What! You never noticed a massive volcano which your house is right next to!?” The island rumbled again.

Me and Vaifoa decided to fix the boat. We spent day and night working on it. And by the next day it was almost done, when disaster struck. The volcano erupted. We tested the boat, but it needed power. Where could we get power? From the lava.

The lava got closer.

And closer.

And closer.

Two Great Vacation Ideas
The Beach
Going to the beach is a lot of fun. At the ocean, you can see colorful fish and different kinds of birds. If the weather is warm enough, you can even go for a swim. Most beaches have lots of space to run, play, build sand castles, fly kites, and have a picnic. When you run on the sand, be careful that a jellyfish doesn’t sting you!
The Mountains
Visiting the mountains is very exciting. You can see beautiful, tall trees and many different kinds of green plants. If you watch carefully and quietly, you might even see a deer, a squirrel, and or a snake. If you feel strong, you might go for a long hike on a trail or even climb to a mountaintop.

Chiefs VS Brumbies


On the lovely weekends it was the finals of the super rugby. It was Chiefs vs Brumbies. It was a very close game because it was 27 to 22. I was going for the chiefs because it had my favourite players in there like Nanai Williams and  Lelia Masaga. Chiefs were down 9-0 in the first 20 minutes. In the first half it was just penalty goals. But then Christian Lealiifano intercepted the ball and then got a try.

Then it was the second half. Then Lealiifano got the penalty, so he kicked for goal then it went to 19-9. 2 minutes later, chiefs got the penalty so they kicked at goal. Then it made to 12-19. Soon it was 22-12, but then on the 64th minute Liam Messam got the try and Aaron Cruden kicked it through the middle of the goal post. So it made it 19-22. 4 minutes later  Robinson got the try and then it made it to 27-22.

The Ugly Duckling






Once upon a time down on an old farm, lived a duck family, and Mother Duck had been sitting on a clutch of new eggs. One nice morning, the eggs hatched, and out popped five chirpy ducklings. But one egg was bigger than the rest, and it didn't hatch. Mother Duck couldn't recall laying that sixth egg.
  
"Did I count the eggs wrong?" Mother Duck wondered. But before she had time to think about it, the last egg finally hatched. A strange looking duckling with gray feathers. It should have been a yellow beautiful feathered duckling. The ducklings grew quickly, but Mother Duck had a secret worry.
"I can't understand how this ugly duckling can be one of mine!" she said to herself, shaking her head as she looked at her last born. Well, the gray duckling certainly wasn't pretty, and since he ate far more than his brothers, he was outgrowing them. As the days went by, the poor ugly duckling became more and more unhappy. His brothers didn't want to play with him, he was so
clumsy, and all the farmyard folks simply laughed at him. He felt sad and lonely, while Mother Duck did her best to console him.
  "Poor little ugly duckling!" she would say. "Why are you so different from the others?" And the ugly duckling felt worse than ever. He secretly wept at night. He felt nobody wanted him.
  "Nobody loves me, they all tease me! Why am I different from my brothers?"
  Then one day, at sunrise, he ran away from the farmyard. He stopped at a pond and began to question all the other birds. "Do you know of any ducklings with gray feathers like mine?" But everyone shook their heads in scorn.
  "We don't know anyone as ugly as you." The ugly duckling did not lose heart, however, and kept on making inquiries. He went to another pond, where a pair of large geese gave him the same answer to his question. What's more, they warned him: "Don't stay here! Go away! It's dangerous. There are men with guns around here!" The duckling was sorry he had ever left the farmyard.
  Then one day, his travels took him near an old countrywoman's cottage. Thinking he was a stray goose, she caught him.
  "I'll put this in a hutch. I hope it's a female and lays plenty of eggs!" said the old woman, whose eyesight was poor. But the ugly duckling laid not a single egg. The hen kept frightening him.
  "Just wait! If you don't lay eggs, the old woman will wring your neck and pop you into the pot!" And the cat chipped in: "Hee! Hee! I hope the woman cooks you, The poor ugly duckling was so scared that he lost his mind, though the old woman kept stuffing him with food and grumbling: "If you won't lay eggs, at least hurry up and  get plump!"
  "Oh, dear me!" moaned the now terrified duckling. "I'll die of fright first! And I did so hope someone would love me!"
  Then one night, finding the hutch door ajar, he escaped. Once again he was all alone. He fled as far away as he could, and at dawn, he found himself in a thick bed of reeds. "If nobody wants me, I'll hid here forever." There was plenty a food, and the duckling began to feel a little happier, though he was lonely. One day at sunrise, he saw a flight of beautiful birds wing overhead. White, with long slender necks, yellow beaks and large wings, they were migrating south.
  "If only I could look like them, just for a day!" said the duckling, admiringly. Winter came and the water in the reed bed froze. The poor duckling left home to seek food in the snow. He dropped exhausted to the ground, but a farmer found him and put him in his big jacket pocket.
  "I'll take him home to my children. They'll look after him. Poor thing, he's frozen!" The duckling was showered with kindly care at the farmer's house. In this way, the ugly duckling was able to survive the bitterly cold winter.
  However, by springtime, he had grown so big that the farmer decided: "I'll set him free by the pond!" That was when the duckling saw himself mirrored in the water.
  "Goodness! How I've changed! I hardly recognize myself!" The flight of swans winged north again and glided on to the pond. When the duckling saw them, he realized he was one of their kind, and soon made friends.
  "We're swans like you!" they said, warmly. "Where have you been hiding?"
  "It's a long story," replied the young swan, still astounded. Now, he swam with his fellow swans. One day, he heard children on the river bank exclaim: "Look at that young swan! He's the finest of them all!"
  And he almost burst with happiness.

Tortoise And The Hare

“Hi my name is Tyrese the Grass Eater,”  “And it is for a very good reason because I have a big mouth, and I LOVE to eat grass.”

But, there’s this Hare that I hate. His name is Fasty, as he has long ears, short legs, and thinks he’s the animal of all time.

Did you know that I love to race? When Fasty was teasing my, my friend Miss Troxy Foxy hopped out of the meadow. After wiggling his tail and scratching all the flea bites, she said, “ Did you know tortoise hibernate in the winter?”

“Hiber-wha!?” replied Fasty. “Hibernate.” Miss Troxy Foxy replied It means that he has to go to sleep for the whole of winter. Then the Fasty said “What, he must be laziest animal alive then.” When Fasty was talking I was just chewing my grass.

But Miss Troxy Foxy is a big know it all because he told Fasty that he laid a bet that Tyrese Grass Eater can beat you in a race. “He hardly sprints at all.”replied Fasty “ But in a proper race over a long distance down the road and back.” said Miss Troxy Foxy.

At last Miss Troxy Foxy called out “Ready,Steady, Go.” Fasty hung a moment to see Tyrese lumber off the starting line. Fasty got bored because it took too long so he shot off to the hill. He was like flying through the air so fast the hill was so far he couldn't get there in a moment. His top speed was one mile per week.

When he crossed three fields he finally he got there. But when he got there his feet felt less springy than usual. He looked another look back and he saw that the tortoise was halfway across the fields. Then he decided to have a breath and a bit of a chuckle because how did the fox ever think that the old cabbage head could beat me. Doesn’t he know my name is Fasty.
Then he said “In Fact, just to show him how confident I am,” He decided just to sit down. And then he said “ When he gets close i'll dash off like a cheetah.” He stretched and chewed on a long piece of juicy grass.

And then there were grasshoppers were singing and the breeze was rustling ever so gently in the tree. Soon he was dreaming of victory.

It was almost dark and when I got back to the farm gates and the finish line.The cows had gone off to be milked, and only the fox, the badger, and the rat were waiting for me.

“Hello Guys,” said Fasty. “What's my prize.” “What's your prize?” said Badger. “You’re prize is we are working for the fox for the month.

You’ve let us down. You should be named Old Lazy. You got beaten by a 125 year old turtle. “Thank you Fasty,” said Miss Troxy Foxy. “You’ve proved me right.”

Then Fasty said “But im still the fastest animal.”

And that was the story I told to Fasty

Friends

What is a friend? A friend is like someone that cares for you and that listens properly.

What makes a good friend? To me what makes a good friend is honesty, Loyalty, being a friend, standing up for you. makes you laugh, makes you happy when you're around them


Why are they important? Friends can introduce you to a another friend and if you are sad they can help you.
