Mansion’s Mirror

By Nirvana Gardner, year 6, Vauvert School

It was the next day and me and Kerys woke up to something weird and slightly creepy.

“Where did that come from? “ I had no clue what else to say.

“I don’t know. Why don’t we move it somewhere else so it’s not in the middle of your bedroom?“

So that’s what we did. We went to each side of the mirror and as I touched the

glass, my hand went through the mirror. I quickly pulled it out.

“Omg, Kerys, this is amazing, this looks like what happened in Alice in Wonderland what if we jump through?” I was so excited, “Maybe we will go to another world and meet the white rabbit and the mad hatter.”

Kerys thought the same. We both jumped in. My heart pounded. I was holding Kerys’ hand. I was excited but nervous, happy but scared. Where would we land?

Kerys blacked out. I was terrified about what had just happened to my best friend.

Thankfully, minutes later we landed. It wasn’t what I expected. Not at all. It was a huge forest. There were almost no animals, no life.

Kerys woke up. “ What’s this? Where are we? Where did the mirror take us?“

I quickly interrupted, “Look at our clothes!” We were dressed in shorts and top and jackets, and I could see why it was boiling.

We just sat there not knowing what to do. Silence fell upon us. Out of nowhere, a bush started moving and I know normally that means a little squirrel or a mouse, things like that, but no, this time it was, well, it was a dragon.

The dragon had soft blue scales and fluffy green hair. All it said was, “Help mamma, she lost.”
