My Letter

Dear Mother

I am writing to you to find out how I could go outside. I need to see the world.

Mum, I need to get out the compound. There is a white lion cub I need to help. Dad, who is a hunter, killed the white Lion cub’s mum. I bet you that the tiny, helpless lion cub is starving and dying. I’ve got to help him, let me out the compound.

The compound is so lonely. Do you think I like being trapped? Let me out I know it has got dangerous animals out there. But you could come with me. Likewise, I can study the waterhole and the animals up close.

My third reason is that dad needs help. Hunting animals is a dangerous job. The team needs me, I’m a huge help. I can shoot a gun and learn to do other things. Think about it your son, who is a hero, getting lots of food for us. Dad is always out he must be tired. Can I go out the compound to help dad?

I wait for your answer. Please reply quickly and think about it.

Dear Diary,

I’ve only been at boarding school for a couple of depressing, terrible days and I hate it. Here are some of the reasons: salmonella pudding, cross country runs and spinach stew. I couldn’t believe it when I got a letter from my mother, who loved me. It said how much she loved me and missed me I shed tears.

Sooner or later, I went to the messy, old boot room, only to find my nemesis Basher the bully, who was really mean. He knocked me on the floor and cornered me me in the room. Basher got the sticky, dark shoe polish and smeared it all in my hair, disgusting. He left me in the muddy dirty boot room ragged, miserable and I was crying.

But then it was time for class.  We all had to do a spelling test.  I got 10 out of 40 so my teacher, who is really stricken, punished me.  I had to stand in the corner, I was so embarrassed.  Also, I had a giant, dusty book on my head, it was the teacher’s favourite punishment.  It was the worst, so I’ve decided to run away from school.
