The Strange Creature । Umarah Ahmed

Chloe is my name and I’m going to share with you my magical experience. One day whilst attempting my incredibly boring homework, from the corner of my eye I saw something green, I thought it was my imagination until I saw it again. I looked outside the window and there was a little green creature hidden behind a tall skinny tree. Then I raced down stairs to investigate. I put on my cosy coat and my snuggly hat and left.

Our garden is enormous and it was filled with glistening pure snow. Then I heard a sound. I crept towards the sound watchfully and poked my head around the lanky tree to find an adorable little goblin with stupendous dolly eyes, a button nose, pointed ears and a cute pudgy pop belly! With its small mouth it was chewing evergreen leaves. Somehow, I managed to clumsily trip which startled the goblin, he gasped and quickly fled. Apologetically I said “wait please don’t go!”, finally it stopped. I said “my name is Chloe, who are you?”, then it was complete silent. Eventually in a shy sweet little voice he said “hello…I’m Charlie and I’m a goblin as you can see…I want to go home so please…erm…may I leave now?”

I sat down on a small bench and shut my eyes and when I opened them, I found myself at home in bed the next morning. Was it all a dream? I swung my legs out of my bed and there laid a handful of evergreen leaves…

“Of course you can, but where did you come from?” I replied.
“I came from Pineville”.
“Oh, that’s a cool name. Is it possible for me to visit your town?”
“Erm…I guess you can, follow me”.
Before I went off with Charlie, I called out to mum, “I’m just going out for a stroll mum!”
“Okay dear, but be back before sundown please!”
“Okay!”
Charlie led me through a forest of trees. “There’s a fence here, how are we going to get over?” I asked. I watched Charlie use his hands to open up a portal on the fence, my mouth hung open for a full five minutes, then without warning Charlie grabbed onto my hand and took me into the portal. In a second I was in Pineville, I was surrounded by little Goblins. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I saw minute cottages and little shops, also I could see little compact cars scrambling everywhere! I followed Charlie to his house and I saw his delightful chubby mum, she said softly “hello, are you Charlie’s new friend? Here have some chocolate cake”, I happily ate the yummy cake. After a while I saw Charlie eating green bugs and he said, “Do you want one, they’re tasty?”
I said worryingly “no thank you!” Straight after that, we both went to a park to play, we played there for such a long time.
I sat down on a small bench and shut my eyes and when I opened them, I found myself at home in bed the next morning. Was it all a dream? I swung my legs out of my bed and there laid a handful of evergreen leaves…I guess it wasn’t just a dream after all.
