Scoil Chualann, 5th class, County Wicklow, 29th November 2017
Once upon a time there was a rubber hose called Borris Ink…
On 4th July, 1984 I was being used to hose down a bonfire. I was bored and lonely. Suddenly I caught fire... , oh the irony!!
I was burnt and alone until I met Drippy, the watering can and she put me out.
After the fire I discovered my shadow had separated from me.
“Where are you going?” I said to my shadow.
“I’m going bowling” replied the shadow, “and try to stop me!”
I followed my shadow to the bowling alley and on the way I saw him knock over an old man. He kept going.
“Holy cow!” I said.
Then I saw the most extraordinary thing..the shadow spewed out a shadow horse and he rolled into the bowling alley.
I realised he could turn into anything because he was a shadow. I followed him cautiously into the bowling alley.
I lost sight of him but when I looked through the window I saw a little girl crying.
I saw that there was an ice cream on the ground and I realised it was the shadow. I spotted it tiptoeing off…
