Including Others

The aliens Zaxor and Guava were getting their rocket ship ready to leave their titanic blue planet. These  two aliens had light blue  bodies and a light green head, they also had four wobbly eyes.  Zaxors favourite planet was Neptune because he liked blue, however Guava’s favourite planet was Mars because it was red and hot.

The two aliens had a mammoth garage painted red and blue (their favourite colours). Zaxor and Guava tipped one hundred millilitres of fuel inside the tremendous rocket ship, some of the fuel splashed down on the ground. They were checking all over the rocket ship to make sure none of the parts were loose. After their checks they went  inside the rocket ship. Before he started the rocket ship he packed a volleyball in case Zaxor and Guava were bored. Guava started the rocket and they both said  “three, two, one BLAST OFF!”

One month later they arrived at the bulky, hefty moon and settled down. They were all tired and Guava’s hands felt like concrete because he had gripped the steering throttle so long. He couldn’t move them. Guava tried his hardest to move his cramped fingers.

Later out of nowhere the aliens spotted two creatures coming towards them. The aliens had been playing volleyball. The astronauts (creatures) approached the aliens. The two astronauts saw the aliens playing volleyball they desired to join so they used  their immediate jetpacks and went to them. The astronauts said “Can I play with you?” The aliens said “ Neho” The astronauts thought what did they say?. They finally figured out what it was. It was a “ No”. They said “ why not”? Zaxor and Guava said “ because you don't look like us”.

They rapidly went back to earth and bought some alien clothes from the costume shop. After that they went back to the immense moon to find the aliens. “Excuse  me can we play with you” The disguised astronauts asked. The aliens  said “ of course you can ”. The astronauts and aliens played a great game of volleyball. Zaxor and Guava thanked the astronauts and asked them their names. The astronauts removed their costumes and said to the aliens “My name’s John and he’s Fred, if you’d given us a chance before we got disguised we could have had lots of great games of volleyball, but we have to go back to earth now”. It was then the aliens realised it wasn’t what people looked like but what was underneath that counted.

Jack & The Beanstalk With A Twist

Once upon a time there lived a poor widow who had an only son named Jack.


Jack and the widow’s home was dilapidated, the walls were crumbling like rain crashing down. There were holes that let in freezing draughts and the roof was missing tiles that let in the rain and sleet. The widow and Jack had a garden with a crop of half eaten and diseased rotten cabbages. Jack had ginger type hair and his skin colour was peach. He wore a silver t-shirt and his shoes were jet black.  Jack and his mother were so distraught Jack’s mum decided that they must sell the cow for only a tiny amount of some money. Jack went hiking like a soldier through the path way to find someone to buy the cow. Later he passed an old man that was wearing a coffee coloured coat and grey pants with a brown hat on top.


The old man asked Jack “can I have your black and grey cow for these magical shiny beans”,Jack was unsure to make the decision but after much consideration he said “of course we are desperate”. Jack ran rapidly to home to share news of his trade. Jack’s mother was furious and snatched the beans off Jack like they were ripped paper and threw them into the yard. Then the old widow said “go to bed”.


Jack had a restless sleep, in the morning he looked outside and saw an amazing, astonishing awesome beanstalk fully grown.  


Jack dashed outside and climbed up the beanstalk like a monkey. Jack was tired but he had got their in no time. Jack saw a magnificent door the colour of burnt toast and the size of a soccer field. On the front in the centre was a golden horseshoe shaped door knocker that glistened like the sun, it was one million dollars. Underneath the tremendous door was a small gap a size for a mouse that Jack managed to squeeze his way through like an ant. He saw something that caught his eye, it was a chicken with a shiny golden egg. He wanted to get the chicken and the golden egg. But the chicken was too heavy for him to carry so he left the chicken there and just took the golden egg.


The giant was sleeping and didn’t know that Jack had taken the golden egg but was woken up by the chicken scratching the door. He checked his security cameras and saw that Jack had stolen the chicken’s golden egg.


The giant was furious and said “FE FI FO FUM I’LL GRIND HIS BONES TO MAKE MY BREAD” but he was too lazy to get Jack himself so he got his hefty phone out and called “111”. The police sped to Jack’s house and said “STOP! PUT THAT EGG DOWN, GET ON YOUR KNEES AND PUT YOUR ARMS BEHIND YOUR BACK” The helicopters surrounded Jack, handcuffs came out and Jack was tasered. The police said to Jack “Your going to court”.  The widow was distraught at the sight of her only son being arrested.


Jack was now in court flagged by two officers. The judge had his gavel next to him, there were two lawyers, one for the defense and one for the prosecution ready to ask the accused about his crime. The judge banged the gavel and said “Jack for the crimes you have committed you are sentenced to twenty years in prison without parole”. Jack was shaking and his mouth was chattering as he was led to jail. Jack spent the next twenty years thinking about his crime. Jack on his release knew to never steal anything ever ever again and neither should you.
