Kayley's unexpected trip!

By Kirstie Gosney, year 5, Vale School

Hi, my name is Kirstie. I'm going to tell you the story of how my wonderful but almost a-bit too adventurous sister Kayley got whisked off to "The Land Of The Magical Folk!"

It was a glorious day, the sun was shining making the lake glisten. Therefore, me and Kayley agreed there was only one thing to do, go outside and have fun! As I stepped outside I heard a high-pitched squeal coming from Kayley! I ran over to her as fast as I could.

"What's happened?!" I asked.

"Look," Kayley exclaimed "Over there!" I took a glance at the end of the garden. She was pointing towards the strangest thing ever, our garden gnome had changed position! We slowly, cautiously, moved towards it. Then...
"POOF!" Kayley was gone! My eyes began swelling up with tears. NO! I couldn't just sit there and sob, Kayley needed me and I needed her!

"Oh sorry, did you want to keep her?" said a tiny voice.

"Umm... Well, yes but, who are you?" I said in shock.

"Who, me? I'm the president of Gnome Town, if you want to find your friend then you must do what I say. Go through this trap door, walk down the steps and get on the yellow train. It will take you where you need to go."

"Thanks" I replied.

Off I went, through the trap door, down the steps and on the yellow train. Sat there looking quite puzzled was...

"KAYLEY!" I chanted.

"To get her back, you need prove she's yours!" said a gnome.

"Prove she's mine?! Look at us together, we're twins!" I said.

"Oh, yeah," said the gnome, "fine you can take her home." My smile went from ear to ear, Kayley's was the same. We went back home and told mum everything!
