Once upon a time there was a young princess who lived in a castle far away. Her name wasAdrianne and she was very beautiful. Her hair was long and blonde and her eyes were blue likethe sea. Her mother died when she was a baby and her father remarried a woman who didn't likethe princess. Adrianne was very unhappy because her new mother treated her badly. She alwaysgave the girl difficult chorus around the house and called her ugly and stupid all the time. Herstepmother was a witch but she was the only one who knew. One night, when Princess Adrianneturned 21, she saw her stepmother in the garden transforming herself into a horrible witch. Shedidn't know how to tell her father because she was afraid for his life. She couldn't sleep all nightthinking how to save everybody from that creature. The next morning she found in her gardenthe strangest animal she had ever seen: a blue rabbit! The strangest thing was that he could talk.The rabbit came close and told the girl she had nothing to be afraid of...His name was Adrian andhe was a good wizard transformed by the witch into this strange creature.A few years ago the witch was stealing children from their parents in order to breathe the youthout of them. Then she transformed them all in trees. Two years ago she needed thirteen children.The 13th was his cousin who was ten years old. The wizard came after the witch, saved hiscousin but he failed to save the other children and he got changed by the witch into this bluerabbit. Since then he is searching for the witch and he found her because he heard that close tothis kingdom some children were missing. Years ago he promised he will save all the childrenfrom that bad witch's spells. The princess agreed to help him defeat the witch. The wizard toldAdrianne that to help him change back she had to steal a key the witch was wearing on a chainaround her neck. She noticed then a collar around the rabbit's neck and a lock. The key couldopen the lock and transform him into a human again.They thought up a plan and the next day the princess spilled a drink "accidentally" on herstepmother's dress. Pretending to help her clean the stain the girl stole the golden key andbrought it back to the wizard. She opened the lock and the rabbit transformed into a handsomeyoung man with long blue hair and hazel, warm eyes. They liked each other very much anddecided to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife. As promised, the wizardwent and made a spell that turned the wicked witch into dust and she was taken away by thewind. Afterwards they told the truth to the king who cried, thanked them and apologized to hisdaughter for doing nothing himself all these years.He agreed on their marriage and gave them his blessing.Because all promises must be kept the wizard turned into a beautiful golden eagle, took theprincess on its wing and they both went and saved all the other children. They brought them back to their families who were very happy and grateful for seeing their sons and daughters again.The eagle flew with the princess on a cliff where the wizard had his castle and they started themost fantastic wedding you've ever dreamed of. And they lived happily ever after.Queens ate cream and berriesKings danced with the fairiesWizards on wooden shelvesDrank champagne with all the elves
WHAT I WANT TO BE IN THE FUTUREWhen I grow up, I want to be a musician. When I was in Primary Three I was deeply obsessedwith music so I decided to join the Ensemble. Now I am playing the recorder in the Ensembleand I am very happy. I would not mind playing any instrument and I will be content as long as Iget to be a musician. However, I love playing the piano.I have wanted to be a musician since I was in kindergarten when I first learned how to play thepiano. I like to play the piano because playing the piano always cools me down when I am angry.Besides playing music, I also like to listen to classical music.I would like to be an accomplished pianist playing classical music in concerts. I hope manypeople will attend my concerts. I will give part of themoneyfrom the concerts to charity.
If I want to become a musician I will have to practice very hard and pass all the eight grades of the music examination.I hope I will become a musician because if I do not become a musician I will be verydisappointed and I will be very unhappy.A BIRTHDAY BIKEMichael's birthday was coming soon, so he asked his dad for a bicycle so that he would not needto walk to school anymore.

 A TRICKIt was late in the night, everybody was asleep except for my brother and me. We decided to playa trick on our parents.
We crept into our parents' bedroom. I took a large sheet of construction paper and drew amorning scene and hanged it on the window. Meanwhile, my brother advanced the time on thealarm clock to just ten minutes before seven. We went back to our bedroom and waited.Soon the alarm clock rang. My parents jumped out of bed. My father went to the bathroom tobrush his teeth while my mother came over to our room to wake us. She was surprised when shefound us awake and laughing.My parents were angry and scolded us for playing a trick on them at such a late hour and forwaking them up. Nowadays they locked their bedroom door when they go to bed.
My brother and I were alone in our apartment. My parents had gone for a function andhad left me in charge. I was doing my homework while my younger brother waswatching television. Suddenly the doorbell rang. Ding-Dong! Ding-Dong! Myyounger brother rushed to the door thinking that our parents had come home; heunlocked the door and opened it.Outside, stood a tall man wearing a black raincoat and black rubber boots. He saidthat he was a salesman and asked politely if our mother or father was at home.Without thinking, my brother said, "No." He asked if we would like to buy somecomic books, which he was selling. I quickly explained that we were not supposed tobuy anything without our parents' permission.Then, as I was about to close the door, he forced his way into our house. He took out aknife and forced me to tie up my brother's hands with some rope which he took outfrom his pocket. I tied up his hands but I tied it in a special way so my brother coulduntie himself. The man then tied my hands up and locked both of us in the kitchen.
