Breaking Bald

St Conor's Y12

“Welcome home from Larne!” said Feargal, as he opened the door to greet Collette. She looked shocked and flustered, as she knew something wasn’t right. Her suspicions were confirmed as she laid her eyes on her dog, who was falling down the stairs. She rushed over to see if the dog was ok, and then she noticed his haircut!...

“Hi, I know this is last minute,” said Oisin, “but I’m going on holiday. Could you look after my dog?” Ryan took a step back in shock and confusion. It was a cold and windy day in Ballyharry.

Justin was sitting in his room, playing on his game console and his game stopped working. He had to get ready to go to his basketball game.
Justin said, ‘My game’s stopped working, Mum.’
‘We don’t have time, we’re late for the game,’ said his mum.

Once upon a time there was a wee dog called Daffy and he lived in a house beside a river. The house was made of logs and Daffy’s bed was a small version of the house and it had his name on it.  Daffy woke up and got out of bed. He had his morning breakfast which was cabbage and shish kebabs.
