‘It looks like we are in tiger cages’ said Tom. The tigers were rose and blue. ‘What? When? How did we get here?’

‘Don’t look behind you’. ROAR.


‘Are they going to eat us’.

‘Maybe’ said Tom.

‘Should we run?’

‘Let’s go.’

‘Which way to the shops’? It panted.

‘The shops are just down the road.’

‘Okay I can hide there while the tigers look for me’.

‘Where are they hiding?’

‘I might buy some clothes while I’m in here. Where has Tom gone? Please say he didn’t get eaten?’

‘Nope, I am right behind you!’ said Tom.
