Be a Gentleman Boys
“ATTACk” The fierce yaks shouted, as they charged into battle.
The King of the yetis stepped forward and called his army into battle as his Queen lay on her bed close to death.
After what seemed like hours of a bloody battle only the King of the yetis and the King of the Yaks remained. The King of the yaks charged into battle, his horns aiming right at the head of the Yeti King. The Yeti king tried to use his shield to his advantage but he was too late. The King Yeti fell to the ground, turning the white snow red. The queen rushed to his aid with tears running down her face. But when she got there it was too late her dear husband was gone and there was nothing she could do about it.
Many years later, the new queen knew she must find a new king to help protect her kingdom from any future attacks by the yak hordes. The queen decided to hold a competition to find a new king.
The queen sat on her chair looking down on the contestants she saw strong yetis and smart yetis, young yetis and old yetis, almost every type of yeti you can imagine.
There was almost 1000 yetis and the queen knew that this would be the hardest decision of her life. There were three competitions the first one was a competition of strength, the winner was a muscular yeti named Connoria. The second competition was a running race, this was won by a skinny yeti named Aravia and the third competition was an obstacle course that was won by the yeti named Bostonia. But it was after the race that the queen was surprised to see one yeti giving the contestants water and shaking their hands. The yeti then asked if the queen needed help coming down from her throne
That yeti was called Liamnia and while he wasn’t the strongest, fastest or most agile yeti he had the characteristics the queen was looking for.
The queen walked down from her throne ready to announce her king, “My new king is the yeti Liamnia, for he has shown kindness and empathy to his fellow yetis”.
The king known for his empathy, kindness and wisdom organised a meeting with the King of the Yaks. After hours of discussion Liamnia had brokered a peace treaty with the yaks. The kingdoms of the yetis and yaks lived a peaceful existence from then on.

The 3 little pigs
Once upon a time there was an old sow with three little pigs, and as she had not enough to keep them. She sent them out to seek their fortune.
On a dark night outside the home of the first little pig a wolf stalked. All the doors of his straw home were locked, the windows were latched tight. The leaves rustled under his feet as he walked round and round the house trying to find a way in. “Let me in little piggy or I will bring your house down”. The big bad wolf certainly lived up to his name, his teeth were as sharp as dracula’s fangs and his fur was as dark as the midnight sky. Big Bad could smell the blood of anything within a 5 mile radius. Big Bad’s eyes hid the horrors he had reaped throughout his many years.
“Crack” the little pig heard something coming from outside. He grabbed his wallet and ran without hesitation up the road to his brother’s house. “Little pig” the wolf shouted in a deep grouchy voice “I'm coming and I'm hungry for pork chops”.
That night at 4.30 in the morning the brothers heard leaves rustling from outside then there was silence followed with loud howling coming from outside. The pigs looked outside to see the wolf and his pack drooling as they looked inside. The brothers heard a noise coming from another direction. So they turned around and headed to the far window Just to see more wolves.
After having a think to themselves the pigs thought the only way to get out of this was to dig so they grabbed a torch and some shovels and started to dig. They dug right through the carpet and straight down into the earth. After two long consecutive hours the pigs finally reached the surface and they were right outside their brothers house. The pigs rung the doorbell still shaking.
Later that night the wolves had a meeting “They’ve gotten away again and again” Big bad shouted from the other side of the room “So we need to put our heads together and find a way to catch those little pigs” then right from the back of the room a little wolf put his a hand up and said “I’ve got a plan”.
The wolves put on their high-visibility jackets and hard hats, ready to make their first strike. In the house the three little pigs all sat close to the fire with their little gloves on and their big fluffy sweaters and slippers when they heard a loud bang, they looked outside. “There it is again” the oldest pig said “it's coming from the roof” the others said. There was a cranking noise that got louder and louder right until the crane operated by the wolf smashed through the brick house. “Bang, Boom, Bang” the pigs were pulled out of the rubble by the hungry pack of wolves, before being devoured. I guess it goes to show that teamwork makes the dream work.

John tried to yell as loud as he could, He ran as fast as he could to warn the campers of the Blue wolf. The campers stared into the blue fire as a wolf crept up on them although the fire was almost out the wolf was still blue,He leapt over the campers and then walked away, I thought to myself for a second why didn’t that wolf eat me and then all of a sudden the fire went out. It was dark, scary creepy the only lights left were the stars shining bright in the sky as all of the campers started to drift off and fall asleep. When I awoke, it was sunrise and everyone had left, The car was gone all but my tent and my rations, I was Terrified then out of the bush Leaped another wolf but this one was red the red wolf crept closer and closer to me I was shaking in fare no one to save me it was just me and the wolf and then it Leaped and struck my arm i had three scratch marks and blood seeped out of the holes and out of nowhere flew a red wolf and then...
