Last week, I posted a hilarious story written by a class at Seaforth Elementary School in Burnaby, B.C., close to Vancouver. This week, it's The Citizen's turn. I think they did an awesome job and I know you will too!
Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a boy named Kyle found a donkey and named it Maegen. The donkey was a very stubborn animal that kicked people a lot, so much that Kyle decided to put her to good use by giving her away to an orphanage so that she could kick bullies.
The donkey couldn’t wait because kicking bullies was her passion. She followed him willingly. And besides, she heard there was some really good chicken there.
When she got there, she met a live chicken named Tyler in the barn. Tyler was terrified of everything and spent his days cowering in his bed, watching tv and playing video games.
“Have you seen any bullies I can kick?” asked Maegen, her eyes glinting with mischief.
Tyler stared at the ground and stuttered, “I-I d-d-didn’t see anyone…except a girl named Naomi. She’s a teenager – the worst kind. She gives wedgies to little kids and hangs them on poles.”
Maegan’s eyes lit up in anticipation. “Oh? Where is she now?”
“W-w-w-why, over there by the flagpole, of course,” said Tyler.
Without saying thank you, Maegen strutted directly to Naomi and said, “Hey you! I hear you’re a bully.”
Naomi snorted and laughed aloud. “Yeah, so what’s it to you?”
Maegen didn’t wait a second longer. She raised her hind legs and struck Naomi right in the face.”
“Ha!” said Naomi with a note of sarcasm in her voice. “That didn’t hurt a bit.”
Scowling, Maegan threw out her back legs and kicked Naomi again.
This time, Naomi was catapulted into the sky, landing right on top of the flagpole.
The children of the orphanage cheered in triumph. “Hurray! She can never hurt us again.”
But Maegen felt a twinge of regret. Lowering her head, she asked, “Are you okay?”
“Yeah, I guess so,” said Naomi.
Maegen flashed a smile. “Oh good. That means I can kick you again.”
“No, no!” begged the bully, “I promise I’ll never give kids wedgies again and hang them on the flagpole.”
And they all lived happily ever after.
