Week 4 Disappointment by Mathew O’G

It was Saturday and it was also  my brother’s birthday.

He saw a stupid toy in  the window of the local newsagents .

He really wanted it so I got it for his birthday.

It was one of those rockets that you pump water into and supposedly they launch 400 feet in the air.

That morning I woke up very early, the sun was shining and the birds were chirping.

I attempted to wrap his present.

That didn’t go too well.

I brought him out to the garden .

I pumped and pumped.

The look on his face when it just wouldn’t take off!
