Kilcoole Primary School, County Wicklow, 6th Class, 01 February 2017
My name is Penelope and this is how my life began…
One day in my school, Blobwarts, a new boy came into class. It was Blob Marley, my best friend.
He had finally transferred over to my school from the Y-men academy.
I knew him from my past life but he didn’t know this.
I walked over to give him a hug but he yelled:
“Banshee,” and ran away.
I wondered why he didn’t remember me when I remembered him and thought “Maybe because he is a blob he can’t recognise me in my new form”.
I turned around and wandered the halls, lonely. But then I saw his friend’s brother at his locker.
This was Gerald the superhero squid blob. I wasn’t looking where I was going and knocked into him, spilling his books to the ground.
He looked up at me while I was helping pick up his books and I realised “That’s the one that I want!”
“What’s up?” I said.
“Hi”, he replied, with the wind blowing through his tentacles.
He looked nervous and was shaking. But so was I!
Everything was silent, so to break the awkward silence I said:
“Sorry about your books,” and tried to help him.
As I went to pick one of his books up, it fell through my hands because I was nervous.
That always happens to me. Gerald looked at me and I could see the fear in his eyes.
He screamed, wet his pants and ran away…
