The Balloon Story by Brennan

Imagine your most favourite spot in the world or a place you like to visit.

At this spot, you are waiting to leave with a group of people on a hot-air balloon.  Three of you all won a trip on this balloon.  As you step into the balloon with the other two people you accidentally kick the rope that was holding the balloon to the ground. It suddenly lifts off the ground without the person who was going to take the three of you on the tour.

“Sam and Dan are the two people I just met who won the balloon trip as well. We are about to take flight away from Cancun to bright blue sea.

All of a sudden Dan swung a water bottle and hit the tour guide in the head, he fell out of the balloon and hit the rope and the balloon went up. As soon as the balloon lifted we were all scared.

Hours later, the balloon ripped as soon as I heard a rip I said “A RIP”. When Sam, Dan and I could see the ground we were relived to see an island right below. The balloon landed on the beach. It was extremely late when one of them dared to look out side. When Sam saw the gorgeous palm trees and white sandy beach and conch shells Dan hopped out of under the balloon were the three were sleeping and got some fresh air.

In the morning the three set off in search of food. Dan picked berries, Sam went hunting, and I used rocks on the beach and used them as weights and worked out. When Sam Dan and I were done building a shelter for the night we fell asleep.

That night we awoke to no more food because of a wolf. “No food, no house, no friends, how can we survive this?”, said Dan.

After days they gathered food and made a Save Our Souls sign. A boat saw our sign and were about to save us when it pulled up. They realized that the boat was just drifting through the waves even though there were two people inside named Julian and Margret. We were happy to see two large packs of food.

Two days later, we had made three large shelters and a brand new Save Our Souls sign. Julian and Margret lived in shelter 1, Sam and Dan and I lived in 2 and shelter 3 was food shelter.

All of a sudden, a tourist boat cruised by and saw our Save Our Souls sign. Then the tourist boat pulled up in to the harbour and we swam out to the tourist boat. We were saved and I said goodbye.”
