English story

by Ivan Matija Babić, grade 7

Once upon a time there was a crazy doctor that had a teriffying idea. He wanted to cut down all the trees in town because he wanted to use all the wood to make a huge machine to destroy everything.

After a few weeks there was a boy, a girl, a bear, a rabbit and a squirrel that were walking. After an hour of walking a boy saw something strange in the distance. He didn't believe what he saw, so he looked again through the binoculars to check if he was right. After he looked through the binoculars, he was so shocked that the girl had to hold him so he wouldn't fall off.

Now, you are wondering what he saw. He saw that there were no trees in the park. The squirrel started crying because it lived there and now it had to move somewhere else.

They started asking who did it, but nobody knew except the seller from the pirate shop. He told them that it was the crazy doctor from the scary house at the end of town and he told them that they can only restore the park if they scare him because legend has it the crazy doctor was never frightened. They had no idea what do until they saw a treasure map on a wall. They had a brilliant idea how to scare him.

They had a treasure chest at home. In the chest were scary costums for Halloween, so they wanted to dress up and look scary as hell.

The boy dressed up as a dragon, the girl dressed up as an Indian, the bear dressed up as a pirate, the rabbit dressed up as a knight and the squirrel dressed up as Batman.

After they dressed up, they rushed to the crazy doctor's house. When they got there, they saw him, but he didn't notice them. They had to come up with a plan. The boy came up with the idea that the doctor would only see their shadows and think they are a group of lunatics. When the doctor saw their shadow he started screaming and ran out of the house as quickly as possible.

The kids started celebrating because they scared the crazy doctor, but now the question was would the forest be restored. They were waiting and waiting in the park and after a while, they started to get sleepy. The next morning a miracle happened, the forest was restored. They started jumping, dancing and running out of happiness.

After fifty years, a boy looked into his album and started smiling because he remembered this great adventure of his.
