Once there was a fairy whose name was Twinkle. Every morning she went to the fireflies and fed them till they were full. Her friend Janet was jealous of her because Twinkle got to feed the fireflies and Janet didn't. Janet was so jealous that the next day when Twinkle started feeding the fireflies Janet popped up and said, “Can I have a turn?”
“Yes,” said Twinkle. But Janet just snatched the food and ran away with it. Twinkle felt bad.
Twinkle started to think. She thought: should I run away in the opposite direction or should l go and try to find out were Janet went? She thought about lots of things. Even about how Janet felt. So she decided to run away from the fairy village too but in the opposite direction. She went to the forest but she took the fireflies with her. The forest was big and dark inside. Twinkle decided to take a nap till the morning.
When she woke up Janet was in front of Twinkle waiting for Twinkle to wake up. When she was awake, Janet said, “Do you want to run a race?”
“Yes,” said Twinkle. Then they ran a race. It had 12 laps of flying around a tree and 1 lap of karting around the tree. They ran the race. Twinkle was winning, then Janet, then Twinkle fell down but…Wow! She actually had the tip of her finger over the line! Janet exclaimed, “Ok, you win! You can go and have the food. It is inside the tree.” So they fed the fireflies and then went back to the fairy village and lived happily ever after.

My story starts with a frog that lived in a pond. His name was Lica and he had a shell that made a special sound. It sounded like footsteps in the night.
One day, Lica put the shell to his ear but it didn’t make any sound. He shook it but it still didn’t make the sound. Then a snake came to Lica and said, ‘What’s wrong?’
Lica said he couldn’t hear the sound his shell normally makes and the snake said, ‘That’s okay,’ and he fixed it.
Lica was so happy that he jumped up.
Little Lleyton was at Ben’s house to play a tournament for Sady’s foundation, the 'Australian Best Woman Bake My Day Competition.' Sady didn’t have a tennis court at home so she asked Ben if they could have the tournament at his house. For this special event, scores were replaced with the word bake. Whoever won got a cake. The score was bake-bake-bake. Ben needed two more bakes to win.
"Yes! I win the cake!” said Ben. “I will put it in my bedroom and close the door so a thief won’t steal it.”
A mouse got in and stole the cake, and when Ben found out he got so mad that he called the Cake Cops. All of the alarms at the Cake Cops HQ made a racket. Alexandra watched the Cake News on TV and ran to Ben’s House. Alexandra was Sady’s older sister. She was worried about Sady dying because there might be cake bombs. Cake bombs might look like lollies but they are real bombs which explode inside cakes. The Cake Cops arrived at Ben’s house and started interviewing Ben, Sady and Little Lleyton. The Cake Cops couldn't find any clues. Ben felt destroyed and Sady felt awkward but Little Lleyton had a crush on a girl dwarf, so he didn’t care. He was not a care bear at all.
All of the Cake Cops went back to their HQ. They turned on their cake computers and started looking for the thief. “I’m close”, said one of the Cake Cops. His computer was flashing, then beeped. “Got him!” said the cop.
He got his partner and they got in their cake car. They drove to a forest and saw the mouse standing next to a stump, his face covered with cake. They were too late. The cops told Ben but he didn’t care because he had a crush on Alexandra and had forgotten about his cake.
Little Lleyton ended up going on a date with the girl dwarf at Papparitto Pizza. He spilled a glass of wine on her. The girl dwarf dumped him and said “YOU ARE NOT A USEFUL PIECE OF TECHNOLOGY!” Little Lleyton replied with a “C’MMON!!!”
