‘A Firework’s Flight’ by Isobel McIlduff, Age 11Years

In a dark, scary, dusty box I saw nothing,but there were more fireworks I’m sure. Suddenly the box started moving. I felt scared… I had no idea what was happening, the box was moving side to side like a rocking horse. Just then I did a sigh of relief as the ride finally started to get calmer.
Slowly the box opened bit by bit the sun came shimmering though, I saw people they were massive, scary and tall they stared at us, I looked around I saw more of us fireworks, he started taking us out one by one and carefully placing us down on the ground. But why and how did I get here? While I was being put down I saw ships and houses…
1 minute later…
I got hotter (sizzle) and I was getting ready to go up into the night sky shining with stars. I went up zooming and whizzing through the sky running like a horse galloping in a race. Half way up I saw boats as tall as a giraffe. They were white, new and glistened in the moon lit sky. There were people playing music and singing their socks off… at the top I can see everything more clearly now I can smell the other fireworks after their bang. BANG! BANG! BANG! I saw the other fireworks BANG! I saw the tall ships from above and jumping, happy, exited people, cheering, screaming, BANG! However the tall ships where still coming in as slow as a snail I started falling.
“Ahhhh” I yelled,I started getting faster and faster even though it felt slow it was really fast . . .

BANG! BANG! BANG! I can hear the other fireworks as I die in the sea. BANG!…
