Our Exciting Adventure

In the July school holidays I had an unusual adventure with my parents, Shada and my twin brother, Vayn. We all travelled together in the morning in Shada’s new vehicle to search for some very secret and valuable treasure. It is definitely a holiday I will not forget.

It all started after we travelled across a bridge to get to a remote island. Shada spotted an eagle flying overhead and took a photo of it on my mother’s camera.

I really wanted to find that treasure so I could afford my next holiday which would be in Hawaii.  Unfortunately a mischief of a wasp started to be a nuisance and buzzed up Vayn’s ankle and into his trousers, that was terrible but luckily it all turned out O.K after Dad caught it in a woollen scarf on Vayn’s knee.

We trudged to a pond where we could hire a filthy dinghy. I climbed on board very excited, but after we were halfway across the smelly lagoon a friendly alligator tried to come aboard too.  It rocked the boat and made my mother shiver causing her to lose her balance, sadly my mother fell overboard and ended up underneath the boat, but don’t worry, I saved my mother because I’m a hero. She was very wet and had to be dried with a towel. We were all glad when we reached the other side.

“I’m so hungry,” complained Vayn as he reached for a banana out of his backpack.

“It is twelve o’clock,” said my mother. “Let’s have some lunch.”

I was thirsty and had a drink of juice and a slice of bread. Shada munched on a biscuit. I suddenly wondered where Dad had got too. Then I thought I noticed him and went to investigate. I was so angry when I realised what Dad had been doing. He was having a barbeque all by his self and was munching on a huge piece of steak. Dad laughed and said there was plenty of cooked food for all of us. That turned out to be one fantastic lunch. There was some trees nearby with fruit on them which I then enjoyed eating.

I was feeling a little cold so I put on a leather jacket and took out a torch before our next stop, which was in a dark scary cave.  Why was it scary? I guess you may disagree but stumbling upon a skeleton wasn’t so bad, it was when we all saw a dozen evil dinosaur skeletons come to life. I knew we had to escape quickly so I picked up a black feather I had found on the ground and tickled one ancient dinosaur with it. The skeleton laughed so hard it fell to pieces, so I knew I had the magical cure.

Boy, was it my mission after that to make sure that I always saved my family, after all I had helped them twice so far. I do seem to have the ability to attract creatures because a moth flew past me and brushed against my nose, and then a beetle ran across my foot.

I am now on the alert to see if an alien turns up in a spacecraft. Unfortunately it wasn’t an alien we saw next, it was an ugly cannibal with a deadly axe who was running at my unlucky mother. She had a narrow escape because the horrible cannibal tripped over a plant root, which caused him to be unconscious and let us make our escape through a long dark winding tunnel.

We didn’t find our treasure in that cave so it was off to our next spot, tramping across a paddock where we spotted a young child with her family picking daisies. I hoped that was all they were looking for otherwise we might have other company looking for our treasure.

Suddenly the earth started to rumble. “Earthquake”, squeaked Shada. Actually what it turned out to be was a pack of wolves chasing a very frightened zebra and they were coming towards us.

I picked up a branch from the ground and ran towards the wolves yelling. My mother was yelling too, telling me to come back, but don’t worry, I saved my family again, plus the poor zebra.

We next reached a river and we went for a paddle. I was feeling in the water for that mysterious treasure, but what I found instead was a lovely dolphin. My mother was also in the water. What she found was a killer shark, boy did my mother panic. Luckily a trout came along and the shark ate that instead of my mother.

“I think we have had a busy afternoon,” called Dad. “And we should go back to our caravan and have a good night sleep. I’m sorry but I don’t think we will find any treasure. We will be back home tomorrow and maybe we can have another go in the Christmas holidays.”

We were all very sad as we walked slowly back to the caravan. I hardly even heard the sound of an aeroplane flying overhead us but when I looked up I saw tiny little parachutes coming down from the sky. Would you believe it? It was our treasure and we are now all millionaires and off to Hawaii very soon.

The End
