The Black Thief escape.
"Mum, can I go get the lollies?" I asked
"No Casper,you can't ‘go get the lollies’," said mum
"Please?" I pleaded.
"OK Casper, yes you can go get the lollies.''
"Yes!" I say walking over to the pantry. I unzip the door and shout: "Ahh, what's that?" because two mysterious black shiny eyes were staring out at me from the pantry My hand shot to my pocket where I kept my pocket knife safe. And, as if it had read my mind, the black rat shot out of the pantry like a springbok with cheetahs on its tail, zooming through freshly packed food not even stopping to get a drink of spilled juice from my brother. I was millimetres away from catching the thief but he zoomed into a crevice in the camping trailer. Reluctantly, I opened the crevice and the black thief shot out like a bullet hurtling toward the target: outside. He was going so fast that he lost control and thwacked his tail on the handle of the jackhammer, and slipped through the gap in the trailer. Without thinking I carefully put my head under the place that the thief had got through and saw him scurrying towards the forest,
"Casper, I thought that you were getting the lollies?"said a voice that made me look round.
"Yes," I replied.
"Then what are you doing here? This is the camping trailer, the lollies are in the pantry,"
"Yes I know mum, there was a mouse!"
"Ok, there was a what?"She asked
"A mouse" I repeat. Escape,
"Yes, in the pantry,"
"Where is it?" She asked.
"Gone, in the forest."
"Good," she said,
Very very good, I thought.
Squawk, squawk. The noise made me look around, and to my surprise, a weka was looking at with its head tilted, I could just see a couple of the lollies dangling from its mouth.
