Enchanted City

It was the festival of Gold today ,Laughter excitement and items were going on. ” I am so Happy to be here” Queen Emily gold said to her citizens of Enchanted Village..They were famous for their gold and money but most of all they were famous for their golden waterfall. The king Shouted “You all get two blocks of gold’. WHOOSH ,BANG ,BOOM. ” What was that said Queen Gold in a terrified voice King Gold knew he knew what was coming it was the army that came every month just to steal from the Village. All the Villagers knew what to do they grabbed all their gold, money and put it underground.

So they dug and dug  to hide it from the nasty robbers. Queen Gold thought to herself why are they always coming to our village and stealing from us.She asked King Gold “Why are they Stealing from us?” okay  i’ll tell you later but help we take the gold from our castle before they will bust it down. Queen Gold didn’t understand all of this. She just realized that the Gold waterfall ,they will steal it  but their was a secret password the weirdest password it was  GoldWaterfallHasABigTennisBallWhichCanFallonAWallAndCanMakeABigHall”. So Queen Gold  said the words out loud and it stopped all of the gold from coming down instead it opened a big hole and the gold spilled in the whole.

It got hidden pretty good. It was coming it came as Queen Gold was running back to her castle a big horse came out of nowhere and hit the queen on the leg.She was badly injured and couldn’t run all she could do was limp.The castle wasn’t that far it was just a 2 minute walk.So she got up she didn’t want to get killed or anything so up she went.
She made it to the castle she assigned the village that they are coming now all the guns came out.The Master robber Andrew demanded “GIVE US THE GOLD NOW OR ELSE” They had to or someone will get killed so they gave as much  as they could now they left.Someone from the robbers were nasty they crashed a few house that took forever to  build.

Now they had to fix the repairs.One night as everyone was fast asleep the robbers come and stole some stuff  in the castle like crowns,expensive Jewellery and  some clothing that was made of rare fabric. Now it was morning everyone was awake  the queen and king realized they just got robbed.It looked like   their castle was empty.The queen got mad she got really angry now she Screamed “WE HAVE TO FIGHT BACK I DON’T WANT ANYTHING TO WITH THEM EVER “So the Queen  trained a few people to fight against them  now it was the time of the month when the robbers come the people were ready they were ready  fight back for their village so this doesn't happen to them ever for the rest of their years.

It was time they were coming everyone were ready to take out their weapons now
they  had to fight for their city. Now the queen demanded they came attacking each other  everyone was fighting it sort of looked like they were fencing. But some people were injured on the ground in real pain. But for some reason the Queen realized that it was wrong to do all these things. So she had to do something to get their attention so she went up in the castle and got on to the balcony  and yelled “ STOP ”  everyone stopped with a confused look, “This is wrong we should sort something out okay Andrew we want this to stop okay give us all the things that you stole from us. So they sorted it out the queen gave a few gold to them so they can leave the kingdom alone. So from the past few months the village never got robbed   so everyone lived happily ever after.

This is my story I wrote for the past 5 weeks well I have been planning and crafting for my  story.I have posted my story on story Bird if you want to give it a go the link is down below

The trip to Rotorua

The trip to Rotorua 
On the first Friday of the school holidays me and my  family went to Rotorua as known as Rotovegas . As we drove up we smelt the fart smell of the geyser’s.We stayed at a Hotel near town.

The next day we got to go to the skyline on the far side of Rotorua . First we went on the Gondola which was scary because we could see the whole of Rotorua and the lake.Now we got off the Gondola.

I went to get my helmet for the luge.I went to the line it was so long that I had to wait five minutes.”Yeah”, I thought. It was my turn finally the moment I've been waiting for as the instructors told us how to stop and how to go.You had to pull forward to go and pull back to stop.As I went to the beginners lane it was pretty easy at first but when I saw the steep hill that I was going to go down I was in shock. I went down it ,it was actually pretty fun I was  laughing with the ride ended I felt  like I wanted to go again.

After we went on the  two chair lift it takes you back to where the luge ride was you could see the mountain bikers and the people on the luge tracks the view was  beautiful.  

After we stopped at the Jelly bean I did one the jelly bean Challenge I got to spin the wheel the wheel was going to pick your that you were going to eat flavour. There were many disgusting flavours like rotten egg and  nail clippings. I ate the most disgusting of all,  rotten egg!

I wrote about one of the things I done for the school holidays.I added feelings and tried to add describing words.
