If you read Fred the camel part one, you would know that I am a boring camel in a boring life and I find a water hole that floods. For the full story, click here. Now, for part 2 …
I was so thirsty. The water hole I had drunk from seemed like a dream. After all, it was three days ago. Suddenly, I stopped on a sand hill, overlooking a valley. I could see a small lake below me. My slow steps quickened, then turned into a fast sprint. I fell twice, but I got back up and going. In no time I was at the hole. I leapt in, but forgot one simple fact: camels can’t swim! The hole was deep. I thought I would drown. Then, I saw a squid. The same one I saw in my dream. The dream was trying to warn me! My feet the bottom, so I pushed with all my might. It sped me to the surface. I climbed out, but the lake grew and flowed over my feet. I saw the squid, floating in front of me. With one strong kick, I sent it flying across the sand dunes. As soon as my feet made contact, the water shrunk back to its regular size. I took a quick sip, and moved on. I wanted to get as far away as possible.
Hi, my name is Fred. I’m a camel and I am bored, like usual. It’s very boring in the desert. One day I was really thirsty when I saw a water hole in the distance. I rushed to it and jumped in. SPLASH!!! It was so refreshing! I climbed out and lay down. In seconds I was asleep. Suddenly, the water flew into the sky and rained down on me. My eyes flew open and I got to my feet. I realised that my feet were real cold. I looked down and saw water up too my lower legs. It was flooding! I ran at top speed away from the water. But, I’m a bad runner, so I tripped and fell on the wet sand. The water went over my head. I was drowning! I saw a squid, and fainted. Then I woke. “AH!!” I yelled. So it was a dream after all. I was so glad it never happened. I left the water and continued into my boring, boring life.
I was super exited in the car drive because I had finally convinced my mother and father to bring me to the new water park: Water World!!!
I leapt out of the car once it stopped and quickly got undressed. I decided to go on a water slide first. There was no line, so I jumped up the stairs three at a time and got on the slide. I sped up faster and faster, when all of a sudden I fell through a hole in the slide, and splashed into a deep pool. The stunt was scary, but really cool.
When I woke, I did not know who or where I was. It was so dark I coudn’t see my hand in front of my face. I felt the wall. It was flat and smooth, like steel. I walked and walked for what seemed like hours.Then I realised I could see a dim light coming from what looked like a one meter high lightbulb. Suddenly the light flashed so bright I thought I was perminantly blinded. But then the flash made me walk slowly foward, as if the flash had controll over me. Then, I collapsed, drained of energy.
Hi, I’m Fred. It’s the school holidays and I’m at my faviroute passtime: a fair. I’m at the front of the line for the ferris whell. The last group is finishing and I am about to be called up. I walk to a horse and hop on. The ride starts up again. Now it’s speeding up. Faster and faster. Too fast. Suddenly my horse leaps off the ferris wheel and gallops away, leaping over a bench. All the other horses follow me. We go through the gate, leaving startled people behind. They go away from the fair into the unknown…
Hi, I’m a mouse named Joe. I have lime-coloured fur and I am five centimeters long. Today I saw a ship in the harbour at six o’clock in the morning. I exitedlyran over to the harbour and jumped onto the deck. I couldn’t see a living thing on the ship so I climbed the mast and leapt inside the crowsnest. But a gang of black rats were allready inside it. When they saw me they shoved me out of the crowsnest. Then they leapt out and, alltogethor flung me overboard. I have no hope. I can’t swim.
