Homeless by Cian

My life is empty,
I live nowhere and everywhere,
I beg and beg,
I get donations,
I’m hungry,
I’m thirsty,
I’m scared as I hear the deafening screams echoed through the cold night.
I’m innocent and guilty,
You see me sometimes,
On T.V or in person,
I need your help,
I need everyone’s help,
To stay alive,
To stay alive and have hope,
Have hope for a better future,
Or a normal future,
You know who I am,
I am poor,
I am unfortunate,
I am homeless.

The Graveyard by Cian

There is a myth about a graveyard that I live close to. They say when you walk near a grave something or someone pulls you right down into the ground. I’ve never gone into it so my friend Jack and I decided to see if the myth was real. So we were walking into the graveyard and I heard this unearthly sound it was like a screeching by a human. Although it frightened us we kept walking. Suddenly I turned to talk to Jack but he was gone. I heard the sound again and something was pulling me down.

The Hole by Cian

I was in Nenagh in Tipperary running across a field when I saw a giant hole with a big yellow sign in it with the words ‘kick it’ on it. I was looking every to where to kick something. Beside the hole there was a big oak tree with beautiful green leaves and light brownish oak with fresh red flowers at the bottom beside the tree. So I kicked the tree and the ground started to shake. I tripped and fell in the hole. The sun is burning me, there is no food or water and I can’t get out. I think this is it.

My Arch Enemy by Cian

When I was four I had an arch enemy. My enemy was the monkey bars and this story is about the reason why. I really enjoyed school in my first year. Especially yard time because we were able to play lots of different games. The only thing I didn’t like about school was the monkey bars. At P.E time we would have to start our activities by going on the monkey bars. I hated it because the bars were very high and I’m terrified of heights. Today I had to go on the monkey bars first I slipped and landed on my bum. It was very sore.

The Vanished Boy by Cian

The vanished boy was as ordinary as anyone but a terrible disaster happened. The boy was just cycling in the woods on his small yellow bike. When in front of him was, a giant brown bear with enormous sharp claws and slavering jaws. He turned his bike around and cycled as fast as he could but unfortunately the brown bear was too quick for him. He started screaming “Help!” “Help!”. The bear gave him a long grueling death and his small yellow bike was put up against a tree. The bike still lies there but no one dares to go near it. For no one wants to be the next vanished boy.

The Magazine by Cian

I was on my way to Tesco with my best friend to buy the new edition of Rugby World.

We bought the copies and went back my house. We open the magazines when suddenly the magazine popped out of my hands and it panted “where’s the shops”. We told him where it was and he dashed out of my back door to where it was and he dashed out of my back door to Easons.

Crazy Christmas Gifts by Cian

Since Christmas is near I’m going to tell you about some wacky Christmas gifts for your friends and family. The first gift is a handcrafted miniature violin. The funny thing is you’re able to play it. The second gift is a purple elephant the size of a house. Imagine you get up to go to school and you see a giant purple toy elephant just outside your house, good reason not to go to school. The last gift is a pair of underpants with a self portrait painted on it. I would recommend getting it for a nephew or a grandson. Imagine the look on their face. I hope you’re happy with your new ideas for gifts. Bye for now!

I can’t even describe how good it felt to win it, let alone be the captain.

The Hover Bike by Cian

I have finally finished my new invention, the hover-bike. It’s taken me almost five years to build it and I’m extremely excited to try it. I just hope it works otherwise that would have been five years wasted. I just need to plug stuff in and flip some switches and then it will be ready. “Test number one a fail,” “test number two a fail,” “test number three another fail.” I’m getting worried and I don’t know what to do. I need to check if I’m missing anything, at least that’s what my teacher says. The day went by and I’M SO ANGRY! I was so disappointed when it just wouldn’t take off.

A Weird Day – by Cian

I woke up looked in the mirror and screamed. My skin had turned as yellow as a banana. I jump back into my bed hoping it was a dream but it was no use. “Perhaps it was the banana I ate yesterday,” I thought to myself. If it was, I regret eating it. As I run downstairs, I hear another scream. My parents have turned blue! My sister has turned pink! We start to become desperate so I went on my bicycle to doctor Phil. I gave every penny in my pocket to him. He greedily took it all but he cured us and I am relieved.

The door was starting to break so I sprinted upstairs into the bathroom and locked the door. I’m that scared I swear I could pass out. I’m clutching my phone very tightly hoping for a reply. Suddenly I hear footsteps on the stairs …then everything stopped and…

The Haunted Theatre by Cian

I’m trapped in a theatre all by myself,

I come across a statue, it looks like a creepy elf,

I hear the frightening cackles, the horrible laughs to,

I can’t see a speck of daylight, I don’t know what to do,

I can’t do anything, because I can’t see,

But I’m not scared, I could never be,

Suddenly from a corner, red bulging eyes pop out,

I am a little scared now, so I begin to shout,

“Help me”, “Help me”, “Can’t you see”,

“I need help immediately”,

Now the eyes are coming, closer and closer to me,

I’m that scared right now, I think I’m going to pee!

The Magic Box by Cian

Sam looked around the entire classroom until eventually he figured out that the sound was coming from the box beside the teacher’s desk. Sam carefully examined the box looking to see where the ticking sound was coming from. After a while Sam got bored because he couldn’t figure out where the noise was coming from, then suddenly the ticking noise got louder and louder until it turned into a screeching noise. Sam panicked so he lifted the box carelessly and said “its empty. What a surprise” then suddenly he was sucked into the box and was never to be seen again.

Crash Boom by Cian

German bombs are flying everywhere, I don’t know what do, I can’t find my family and everywhere is red and wet with blood. I crouch under a table in my house that is destroyed now by the bombs. I hear screams as I examine the room to find a safe way out. As I began to creep through the ruins of my house, I saw some dirty coins on the floor. Suddenly the black rain got heavier and heavier, it arose from the pavement and transformed into large puddles. I had to get out of the house. I saw an old ladder, I used it to get up to the remains of the roof. I huddled down in the tight space hoping I would survive.

The Big Catch by Cian

It was a dull rainy day at Balbriggan harbour as John was fishing for cod. He had been out for an hour and had caught nothing so far. John was very bored and just wanted to catch five fresh cod so he could cook them for dinner. It took another two hours until he caught a fish, but it was worth it because he caught the biggest codfish in the world. No one knew what John did except me and I swore not to tell anyone as long I could have dinner at his house. John cooked the gigantic cod nicely but in my opinion the vinegar on it was too sharp.

Party at the Zoo by Cian

It was a warm summer’s night as all the animals in Dublin zoo were organising a party for the new red panda coming from Nepal. They wanted to surprise him when he arrived.

All the decorations were up, and everything was ready, so they just had to wait. The red panda finally arrived, and the party got started. The monkeys were exceptionally good at the bungie jumping, the red panda was good at the go carts, but the lion was completely out of tune on the karaoke. They all had a great time at the party.

Marshlings by Cian

mThis year an audio book was shot onto Mars to see if Marshlings were real and if they could adapt to human ways. They had put a camera on the audio book so that they could see what was happening on Mars. Journalists had been writing some crazy things like “will marshlings be able to fry some eggs or give someone a fringe in the hairdressers?”. I myself don’t believe they exist. However, one day I was very tired after washing my dad’s car, so I lay down on my bed. Suddenly it went pitch black. I jumped up and saw the lights flickering in every house. I thought to myself “could this be them, could this be the marshlings?”

She was the most beautiful cat you ever saw in your entire life. I was a bell boy for the first- class section so I carried the guest’s bags to their rooms.
