There is an amazing creature that lives in a pink lake, with water boiling hot that could burn a human to the bone. This creature has adapted to this hot boiling water, which is pink in colour because of the flammable gas that lies at the top of the lake.

The creature is known as Charcoal Flat Back, it’s pink in colour with a black belly, the colour helps to camouflage itself into its surroundings, it also has a flat back which allows itself to hide under rocks to take protection from its only predator.  The deadly predator (Sriz) which has a sharp sword like mouth that injects poison that can kill the Flat Back.

I was expecting my parcel to come today after school.  I walked in from school and I searched the perimeter of our house to look for it.  I bought it last week and the delivery people said it would be delivered today.  The package is super fragile and small I can’t wait to play with it.  Mum only allowed me to get it if I looked after by myself.  I will need to feed it everyday and give it water so it will survive.  I was feeling disappointed that it didn’t arrive so I went to my room and there it was on the bed.  “When did it arrive?’ I said to my mum.Related image

One day when I was going for a stroll with my grandpa in his favourite park called Footstep Park. The reason my grandpa likes this park is because he likes building stuff and there are thousands of sculptures some like this.

 

This is his favourite but on that day we went for a stroll it was not there and the rest of the sculptures had disappeared.  “Where could they be? “I asked my grandpa.

He said, “they have all been moved out and are being sold so they don’t get bulldozed by the trucks coming in to make a Disneyland.

100 wc rain

On Tuesday the 28th January 3013 my family and I went to see the Commonwealth Games in Tokyo Japan. We saw the swimming unfortunately the swimming was outside so it was really sunny, boiling hot and lots of people got sun burnt. Suddenly it started bucketing down rain and everyone was drench because there was no shelter. The crowd was running to their private jets to escape the pouring rain although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress. So crowd was so soaked they could have collected buckets full of water and made a Commonwealth Games swimming of their own.
