Imagine A World Full Of Happiness
Picture a world full of happiness, screaming kind, positive and joyous things. I wish my world was like that again. As I sat on a soaked bench in the bucketing rain I slowly got up to go home. The staggeringly strong wind pushes me away, making me feel that I don’t belong at home. Everyone walked past me with depressed faces. Our world was never like this. Before this world it was bright with sweet clouds like cotton candy and the dazzling daisies giving everyday a beautiful glow and the shimmer of the sun. But now our world is nothing but dark and gloomy trees, it makes me feel miserable.
A huge crowd catches my eye. As I stroll over I notice that everyone is wearing a black face covering mask. The Mayor is showing the town something. I take another deep step into the crowd. I could see the item, then barely I hear voices saying, “It looks just like back in the days when the world was bright,” and “It reminds me of the sky, remember?” With courage and anticipation, I push my way through the hoards of people to where the Mayor presented…
A star..a beautiful star! It was bright and had the colours of blue, green and pink. When the Mayor asked the town where to put it the scientist butted in and said, “Lock it up in the lab!” The Mayor declared, “We will lock it up in a safe.” I started to worry. The people are reaching their greasy hands to get it. I think to myself, “I need to get that star before it lives in torture!” I slowly and carefully crawl on the ground and I push through what seems like a million feet. I finally make it in the middle of the crowd, “I can't be like in the movies where they reach their goal then sit there just waiting. I have to get it before their eyes.” My heart racing, I run towards the star. I feel the star on my fingertips. I quickly slide to get it and think, “This is it, this is my big moment! This is my only chance to keep a piece of the old world still going.”
As I snatch the star out of the Mayor's hands I quickly run off before he even notices me. I hide behind a wall and take a peek at the Mayor. He has an angry look on his face. He yells something but I can’t quite hear it. Before he even sees me I run to my house holding the star. The star is glistening. I stare at it for a while but I now notice it dimming, I start to worry. I found my bike sitting in the old rust bike shed, so I grabbed it. My bike’s white with white butterflies, the butterflies are quite scratched off though and my bike is very rusty. I hop on my bike and I drive off to my house…I finally arrive at my house. As I clamber into my house I run to my room and close the door quietly because my parents are sleeping. I come into my room EXHAUSTED my bed is pulling me towards it. I collapse on my bed and my eyes feel sleepy, they start to close...I try to stay awake but the next thing I know I was asleep. My dreams are wildly scary. I try to wake but the horror takes over me. After 30 mins I woke up in shock. Suddenly something comes into my head and it's telling me something. I know what I have to do.
I quickly walk to the basket that I had put the star in and take it out carefully. My parents are still sleeping, they're such sleepy heads! I walk even faster with the star in a blanket. I walk out, shutting the door quietly. I run through the dead grass to a place I’ve been before on a hill. This is my time to do it. I slowly let my hands release the star..the star stays low at first but then gets higher and higher until it goes towards the sky. Going deeper and deeper away until…all I can see is a little tiny shimmery white dot. I finally did it! I set the star free! … But what do I do now? I stroll home. I open the door to my home and walk down the hallway to my room and flump on my bed..I hear my Mother shouting. “Come outside and look at what's happening! Quick!” said my Mother barging in my room. I walk out to the backyard and notice that the grass is green, the sky is bright blue and the shimmering sun is out. I walk to the front yard to see the flowers all blooming to life! And the Dazzling Daisies in the wind!
It's a miracle!
