Restoring the Light
By Hannah Bradbury
As I waddled across the sandy desert path at five am I looked longingly at the sky waiting for the sun to rise but to my disappointment it did not! We were in the middle of a terrible war with the darkness and I am just a platypus trying to help. The darkness is a horrible spreading cloud controlled by a sinister bat. The darkness destroys the light and everything in it’s path.
On my way home I encountered a purple flower but this wasn’t just any purple flower this one sparkled brighter than any other in the field. I picked it along with a few others and took them home.
I gave my mum the flowers and hid the special one behind my back. I ran up to my room and opened the door that said ‘Bo’ in bright green bamboo. As soon as I was in I slammed the door behind me. I sat on my bed and sniffed the flower. All of a sudden I had an awkward tingling feeling in my head. I screamed in shock! I opened my eyes and my door had come completely come off it’s hinges! I ran outside and screamed again trying to test out my new found powers. A tree fell down right in front of me! The flower gave me the power to make “hypersonic” noises.
The light went out and I saw a shadow of a bat in the distance, then I heard a creepy voice… “You think you can defeat me with your powers don’t you?” I shot my “hypersonic” noise at him and the light came back. I screamed with joy hoping I wouldn’t knock any trees down this time. Nothing happened my powers were gone but I was still happy I had finished the darkness and I was a hero.
