If I Could Fly!

a short story by Maya - St Mary's Primary School

The penny scraped the stone walls as it tumbled down through the wishing well. After about five seconds, I heard a small plop that echoed up to me. My wish was to fly, but I knew it was probably no use. I was wrong...

Immediately, I began to float up into the air! Fortunately, I floated through a park and grabbed some monkey bars dramatically. I waited for about five minutes until I saw an old lady. I had been shouting to her for over ten seconds when I realised who she was. "Grandma!" I only had to say it once before she realised who I was.

"What the dickens have we got here then?" She asked. It was almost like she knew it was going to happen!

She was fine with it, but when my parents found out they thought that they were in a dream! Life has never been the same since that day.

I`m never going near a wishing well ever again.
