PLUTO: - Link to video.

I shouted out “Pluto, hurry up it’s starting!” It’s our favourite dance group, The Planets. It was the day that the planets, Jupiter, Neptune, Earth, Saturn and another four (Earth is my favourite) had just announced that they were looking for a new member of the group. I instantly turned and looked at Pluto. He refused saying, “I can’t do that because well… i’m weird” I replied, “I don’t think you're weird” he started to blush and changed his mind. We started training right away.

First I showed him a little spin I had just put together but he took one step and collapsed right on to his face. I face planted my hand thinking there is a lot of work to be done. First I tried to show him how to do the moonwalk but it didn't  look very good as he just slid his feet along the ground making a irritating sound. Next I showed him the move when you lie on your side and run which makes you spin in circle but that was even worse, he couldn't even move an inch. Lastly I told him to jump on the trampoline and and pose while in the air and as I expected he failed.

He had been practising for 2 days straight and then the next day I went to meet up with him was like a pro he was destine to be in the group. So we set off to the planets try outs where there millions of people almost like the scorching hot day I went to the pools. We waited for 1 hour until it was Pluto's turn.

He peeped out of the curtain and looked out to the judges. He walked out as soon as Sun said his name. He got to the middle and shook with fear then looked out to the side where he saw me and took a breath and started dancing like no one was watching. The Planets were so surprised and Neptune even started crying. He finished his routine with 0 gravity and posing in the air. Earth walked up to him and said, “welcome to the team”. I ran out yelling, “Oh my gosh Pluto you made it in” but before I could continue my saying earth stopped by saying, “who’s the asteroid?” “This is my friend, Sheran” Pluto says, “this weirdo is your friend, come on Pluto let’s get out of here” Pluto stops to think then says, “well she’s not weird to me” Earth replies, “well if you're not a planet what are you”  “exactly what i’m meant to be” Pluto says. He turned his back to the gang and hugs me then I ask, “wanna get a shack from the milky way?” He replies, “I wouldn't miss it for the world”

TITLE: Lost in a bush
Start your writing here:

The sun had just rose upon the hills, the rays from the sun peeped through my bedroom curtain, I felt the heat waking me up.  It was a Friday morning here at Hunger Ville, the birds were singing there fabulous morning song and the crickets chirping had come to an end. It was the day of the famous bush walk I had always been wanting to go on. I couldn’t go on it before because I had no one to go with but with my brother in town it would be the perfect opportunity. My brother, Duncan and I, Jerry, are very excited for this event. We stayed up all night packing our bags full to the brim. We slipped on our shoes and set off.

The bush was 1 kilometre away so the car was an obvious decision to make. without hesitation I turned the key to hear the exhaustion from the car rumble. As I was backing out of my steep driveway Duncan was setting the GPS to our destination. It started off with, “ in 100 metres take a right onto Lovely avenue” and of course I took a right onto lovely avenue. this had went on for half an hour taking a right when I needed to go left, taking a left when I needed to go right. I was sure we were going in circles because we just kept passing trees that looked exactly the same as the others that came before it. We took one more right turn onto Richview Avenue and there it was the start of the track. II thought that it looked better in real life than on the picture.

Without further adieu we unpacked the car and stepped just once into the Bush walk with a deep breath to be greeted with and stench of animal poop. It reeked of old fish guts and well... POOP! But I had the power to look past it and keep going but Duncan had otherwise he thought about vomiting but he finally had the guts to overlook it as well. we had begun our journey.

I tap Jerry on his shoulder and tell him, “Legend says that at the end of this bush walk there is a waterfall that grants you 2 wishes but it is in the horrible bit of the bush walk called *GULP* HORROR VALLEY *dundundun*!” But before he could finish off his story he was interrupted by his brother, “pshhh that's just an old town folks storey from when we were kids. Don’t get reeled in it always turns out to be fake. I just looked the other way with a face that I couldn’t explain but it was a mixture of angry and ignoring him.

We had spent about 5 minutes not talking but my mouth gave in and had to speak, “so how long do you think we have been walking?” “for about 10 minutes (Duncan cheeks his watch)” They saw a sign saying track goes this way. “So the only way to go was through the forest I guess” Duncan said. They went through to find no path awaiting them just bushes, trees and other wild birds. It wasn’t until I heard a rush of water thinking that it was the magical waterfall but what was it doing so close I thought it was in HORROR Valley *dundundun* so I just thought we took a short cut. When I told duncan he said show me.

I took him to the place I heard the sound from and when we saw it was a waterfall but it wasn’t the magical one.
