Magic

By Erin Ogier, year 6, Amherst School

“ It’s okay, we’ll be alright,” Charles explained calmly .Stay under the blanket Margaret.”

“ Yes stay tight it’s going to be a rough ride,” added Elizabeth, having an anxious look on her face.

My name’s Margaret, I’m with my siblings Elizabeth and Charles.We were having a normal voyage across the magical ocean. Until…the boat was being crashed against by great, monstrous waves. The sail waved around non stop for hours! A blanket of gloom caked the sky. Searchlights nearly blinded us. Seaweed grasped onto the holes in the boat dragging us down with it. I held my breath. Charles tried to save me, but it was too late. He slowly lost breath. Luckily, Elizabeth dived down to save him.

“ Yes, I’m so glad I can hold my breath for a long time,” Elizabeth explained in excitement.

“ Now let’s forget about that and get on with our lives,” added Charles.

I do not think that he felt confident saying that, though. I wish I could make him feel better.

Hours passed slower and slower. We got more and more sleepy. Somehow, I woke up on a rocky, uncomfortable beach. Confused, I stumbled towards the ocean, then as soon as I was at my hip all my injuries suddenly disappeared. I do not know how or why, it was almost like magic. I shouted to everyone else to tell them what just happened. There was no answer. I was alone in a magical world. This was a dream come true! I turned around and there was a beautiful pink candy floss tree. As I stepped closer and closer, a small man popped out behind the tree.

“ Ah what a wonderful day it is,” the little man said.

“ Oh sure, umm yes,” I replied in confusion. “It’s wonderful here, is this place real?”

“ Yes this is real, very real.”

Since that conversation we have been inseparable ever since.
