Hi my name is John and I love BEES. My friends are into things like music and sports just to name a couple but my hobby is looking after and caring for my bees. So you could say I have an obsession with bees. I have 2 hives in my back garden and I love seeing bees come and go from there.
On the day of my birthday my parents got me a big hive with metal bees on it but inside those bees were little houses for my bees. It was the best present ever.
PS: I called it Eureka Tower because that was the first word I said when I saw it.
“Our world is being destroyed by us,” announced every president in the world. “We are killing all the bees which is killing our crops at the same time.”
That was 50 years ago and we should have listened. There was now only 1 bee left. After that bee died we had no crops left in any country. Suddenly the sky just turned black. The sun was being blocked by something but nobody knew what it was. Straight after that happened, it looked like the sky was falling. A massive bee came out of nowhere. Then swarms started coming. They were coming for their revenge.
I was patrolling up and down the hallways of Melbourne Bank. It felt strange. It felt like eyes were watching me. It felt suspicious. I then went for a cup of tea and some biscuits but I’d to leave my tea and biscuits as bees were somehow robbing the bank. I chased after them as quick as I could and saw them on top of the computer manufacturing building. I asked them why they stole the money .Somehow they could write and they said that they help our world and now it’s time for us to repay them. I found the courage to say no but that’s when they attacked.
“Almost finished..,”I groaned with frustration.
“I only have to get the batteries.” I rushed out the door enthusiastically .
“Where’s Scientist Sam?” questioned the new intern Simon. “He must have left this strange, eerie looking gun for me!”
Meanwhile, I was strolling down the street peacefully, searching for the nearest store. I purchased my batteries and headed home.
“At least I have batteries handy,” sighed Simon.
ZAP. Uh oh. Walking back without a worry in the world my eye caught a glimpse of the Eureka Tower.
“ENLARGED BEES! SIMON!”
(pinch, pinch, pinch)
You’re probably wondering how I got here. I’ll tell you anyway. So it all began like fourteen minutes ago, I’m pretty sure. I hated bees,it got to the point where I can’t sleep cause of them. It was beginning to be summer and those insects where heading my way. So as dumb as I was, I thought of bringing a dead flower in my garden and I laid it there (yeah, you probably know where this is going). So then the bees started coming. So I went outside to find that there is a hive on my door, it hits my head and(pinch)(pinch pinch)”Aw.”
“Woohoo, Yes, Yes, Yes!”
I have finally trapped my first bee in a jar. I looked up what to do with a bee and all it said is to let it free because without bees I’d be dead. I obviously didn’t believe that so I researched more about it and I automatically believed it. I let the bee free and gave it a little bit of nectar. Later on I decided I should look for more bees and I found a group of them stuck in their own honey. I let them out to be free.
“No, No, No!” I shouted while I saw my sister run away from an ostrich. I ran up to it and scared it away. My sister is always afraid of those stupid creatures. I told my neighbours to either sell them or keep them away from my house. The next day my sister went out to exercise and was waiting for me in our garden. I didn’t go out because I knew the ostrich would attack her so I waited till it did. I saw it approaching and tried to catch it but I didn’t realise they could fly…
There I was, revving up my car at the starting line when all of a sudden the craziest people I know, the Busby twins, arrived. They came in this so-called hot air balloon. I chuckled to myself as I heard them say that they created a new mode of transport.
” Cars travel on the GROUND at a much quicker rate!” I exclaimed.
I saw the starter making his way up to the corporate box. I prepared myself. He fired his gun and then the Busbys and I set off but theirs flew into the air. I didn’t realise they could fly, I thought to myself.
“See you at the finish line,” they announced.
I have a pet hamster. He is very unique in his own special way. His name is Hammy the Hamster. He is 2 years old. I got him when I was 10. He used to live under my house until I caught him one day and kept him as my own. He lives in my bedroom in a little cage. It’s a two storey with a little bed, a hamster wheel and some food and water in there.
One day when I went to my friend’s house (he also has a hamster) we put them in the same cage. They then started to fly. I didn’t realise they could fly. But how would we keep it a secret?
“Why are there so many giants waiting to get on the mysterious object that goes really fast?” I was thinking to myself.
So I decided to crawl on. I could smell a peculiar smell. After that I knew what it was. It was the most scrumptious cheese I have ever observed. So I leaped in an imperceptible hole. Unexpectedly, it got pitch dark. I felt a really weird feeling in my stomach. I got moved and then I could see and I was right by the window. I didn’t realise they could fly. Giants can now fly, I thought to myself.
Sniff, sniff, sniff! Ugh! That reeks.Why do those muts that giants call dogs get all the delicious food and all I ever get is leftovers?
5 days later…
I’m starving. I am so tempted to start eating myself if I could just take one or two bites out of my juicy meaty flesh. Pull yourself together Milly! Whack! Now I’m talking to myself. What the… wait, what is that smell? It looks to be a triangular shaped cheesy piece of food with red circles on it. Gobble Gobble Gobble. Wait a minute I didn’t realise they could fly… SQUISH.
A few years ago when I used to live in Africa, I found out my mom’s big fear of roaches. I was about 4 or 5 years old when my mom was cooking dinner. Now as a child, my parents were like my superheroes and weren’t scared of anything. Until that very night…
So my mom was making dinner when a jumbo roach came from outside. Blaberus Giganteus is the scientific name which means Giant Roach. As soon as she saw that monster, she immediately grabbed the bug stray and I didn’t realise they could fly. My mom’s jaw dropped open as she saw the wings coming out from the back. I’ve never heard my mom scream so much! She ran out of the kitchen leaving her little boy. My dad finally took care of it, he emptied the can of bug spray on that demon. I wish I had all of this on camera.
I rifled through his belongings wondering if I could find anything worth a bit of money. I found no chocolate bars in the kitchen (the villain) . I then hopped up the stairs and walked into his room. I looked in the drawers and found some tissues, irritable bowel medicine and chocolate bar wrappers (Really he wouldn’t even leave me one chocolate bar). I went into the other room and found a dangerous book! Just kidding! The only dangerous thing I found in his house was the irritable bowel medicine and his underwear drawer. I then found two carpets but I didn’t realise they could fly. Just kidding! We don’t want a replay of Aladdin, do we? Then the door clicked open and I heard a voice. I was caught.
BARK! BARK! I was giving out to my younger brother because he took the juiciest bit out of the little thing humans called dogs.
I am a coyote and I live in a stifling hot den in North Carolina with my brother.
We finished eating and went looking for more food when we came across Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright, more commonly known as the Wright Brothers. They were the ones who had killed our parents with the thing that shot lightning out of a barrel. I was about to pounce on them when they hopped in this “thing” and took off.
Up and up they went, I sat there dazed because I didn’t realise they could fly and then they came back down and we went back to our den deciding to leave them alone and have a good night’s sleep.
“Caleb!” I shouted running up to him.
“Sean got hurt, we might get no homework,” I said.
“If pigs could fly!” Caleb said.
After school, I go straight home (and that is what I’m doing now) and before I do homework I feed the pigs. I was walking towards the pig sty and found no pigs. I was looking around for two minutes before one landed on my head. I looked up and there were pigs flying above me. I didn’t realise they could fly and then they all flew down in a row, waiting for their food and the little one who hit me on the head just stepped in line.
” Please, mother, Please!” I was begging my mother to go to the zoo. There was going to be a purple elephant. She said I could only go if I made enough money to go. So I decided to go busking with my violin and I also painted portraits for money the next day. After 2 days of hard work, I finally got enough money to go. I even had to pay for petrol. When we arrived, I was so happy with myself. The show was so good until the elephant went mad. Luckily we escaped.
“What is that in your painting?” bellowed Tom.
“It’s a purple elephant,” I mumbled, embarrassed. “I painted it the way I wanted.”
Tom scurried to the teacher and snitched on me. That made him extremely happy. Tom’s a bully. He calls me a nerd because I play the violin. I had to get proof that he is bullying me. The following day I attached a microscopic microphone to my tie.
“Ha, you loser,” he sneered at me from across the room.
Who’s laughing now?! Because I’ve got evidence. Terrible Tom!
There was a man who was poor. He pushed his luck all the time and one day he pushed his luck so much that when he was made the richest man he got himself banned. Now he lives in a cave and he does not know why he got banned. There was another man who was the same as him but rich so we went back to the town and said he was sorry and he got paid 100000 coins. Now he painted an elephant painted purple. He was happy. He can also played the violin.
We were playing a soccer final in Cork and as you know anything can happen in Cork. It was the start of the game but all of a sudden we were down 1 nil. Suddenly at tip off one of my teammates passed the ball to me but all I could see were giants sprinting at me in purple shirts. Just then all of a sudden an elephant ran onto the pitch painted a very bright red. There was a person playing the violin on him. I asked him how he had got on the elephant but I didn’t care and I was happy that they didn’t tread on me.
There I was, busking with my violin, on the streets of New York when I saw a purple painted elephant on one of the walls in Times Square. I was confused and took a drink of water in case I was dehydrated and having delusions. But it turns out this marvellous piece of creativity was real. I did a full examination and was bemused as the penmanship was inch perfect. All of a sudden a crow cawed overhead and the elephant came to life. He immediately stampeded towards me and as he was just about to trample me, I woke from my dream. And I was happy to be alive.
Today was the day we go to the zoo.I didn’t really care, I just painted a picture of my mum. After the beautiful picture, I finished violin training.Then it was December 18 and we went to the zoo. I brought my violin case, I really don’t know why I brought it but I just felt it in me to bring it. We started making our way to the elephant site cause my family and I were obsessed with elephants.
Crash! The huge window has just broken. For some reason, as stupid as I was, I whipped out my violin and started playing it. He stopped. He was happy. We got so scared.
“ROOAARR ,Waaaaaaaa, help! There’s an elephant after me with a… wait a minute, it has a violin in its purple trunk! What the..?”
“Wow, Zac! I am loving that virtual reality. Everything looks so realistic.”
“Wanna get some pizza or..?”
“Nah, I need to finish the unfinished painted picture of happy children.”
“No, I have a meeting with Mr Purple, very, very important.”
“More important then your best friend?”
“YES! If I get the job then I would be making millions. So no.Bye.”
