The Mysterious Lightning Bolt

​Scoil San Carlo, Leixlip, 4th Class, 24th February 2016

Once there was a little dog called Jimmy, who was struck by lightning in his bed room. 

A couple of days later, Jimmy woke up and when he had to run to school, he got there in an instant! Jimmy was so confused.

“What’s happening?” thought Jimmy.

“Something happened to me!” Polly and Jimmy screamed at the same time.

“You go first” said Polly. 

“I can’t say it to you, but I can show you!” said Jimmy. He then sped through the apartment. He was so fast that Polly couldn’t even see him. 

“That’s amazing!” said Polly. She was flabbergasted.

“Now you try yours!” said Jimmy to Polly. 

Polly jumped out of the window, turned off gravity and floated there in the air. 

When Polly turned off the gravity, it changed the air and affected her speech. So everything she said came out in a bubble. The bubble had to pop for her words to be heard. 

The bubble floated towards Jimmy and then popped. And then Jimmy heard her words.

“Look at me I’m floating!” shouted Polly in astonishment...
