Tabubil International School, Papua New Guinea
Emily, Ahmad and Dino turned their faces to stare eagerly at Suzie. They didnt want her to run out on them, seeing that she was the owner of the hotel. Suzie, seeing their worried faces decided to stay with them. So she gave them each a warm, comforting smile.
So whats it going to be? asked the old man who was the owner of the purple land.
Can you please spare us a minute so that we can decide? asked Dino.
Whats there to be decided! laughed the old man. Oh all right, you have one minute to decide but if you dont make up your mind in that time I will be pleased to tell you that you will receive the punishments.
And with that, the old man let out a high-pitched wicked laugh. Dino, seeing that Emily was close to tears put a comforting arm around her.
We should touch the purple one. said Suzie.
No we should go for the red one. said Dino.
Ahmad disagreed, I think we should go for the purple one because its a nice colour and besides red is the colour of sacrifice.
Emily suddenly spoke up, I think we should all agree with Dino.
Suzie wasnt taking this in, she still thought that they should go for purple.
Thirty more seconds to go, the old man announced.
Look, said Dino, well take the red one.
Are you crazy! I told you the red stands for sacrifice, whispered Ahmad in horror.
And thats exactly what Im trying to tell you, whispered Dino, he put the red there so that we would go for the purple thinking that if we chose red wed be offered as living sacrifices!
So the others agreed.
Well touch the red one sir. Suzie announced.
Dino could see that the old man wasnt pleased but he also couldnt help noticing the smile that was curling its way through the old mans lips.
Well then, let the fun begin! yelled the old man.
Dino was about to ask what the old man meant by LET THE FUN BEGIN but a voice in him told him that he would soon find out.
Is it my imagination or have this tables suddenly decided to grow their legs to a size of giant, asked Emily in terror.
Its not your imagination and the tables arent growing either, were shrinking! Suzie yelled. Her voice echoed around the room.
What is that? screamed Ahmad in terror. He was pointing to ten enormous figures approaching them.
RUN, RUN, RUN! yelled Dino.
Enormous animals were chasing them!
HELP!! screamed Emily.
A huge orange striped cat had grabbed her with its paws and was about to swallow her up. Suzie started crying out loud.
I wish this had never happened, she cried.
Thats it! thought Dino. They were on the Planet of Dreams. I want everything to be put back to normal, he yelled.
And suddenly all was back to normal. But now they had to decide how they were going to survive on the Planet of Dreams.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE ON THE PLANET OF DREAMS
