Journal Writing in Totara 2!

CHERUB: THE RECRUIT By Cameron Grigg

Dear Journal,
Yesterday was an unusual day. I went to the Westpac bank to get some money out, when I saw a dairy across the road, so, I ran across the road to get a drink. (By the way, I am an orphan).

Dear Journal,
As I got into the store I saw 2 masked men, they had guns!!! Quick as a flash I kicked one guy and knocked out the other with a round-house kick to the head. I then knocked out the other guy “WOW’ said the clerk that was amazing!! ‘How old are you?’ He asked ‘Ten I replied’
Dear Journal,
Thanks he said ‘no problem’. I called 111 and after the police took the guys, the clerk snuck up behind me and stuck a needle inside my arm-I was being drugged!! When I woke up I found myself in a room with an orange t-shirt, cargo pants, leather boots and  a note saying-‘Go to Office’ (no wonder I was completely naked except my under wear) The strangest thing was that on the t-shirt, was a baby sitting on a globe with a bow and arrow and 1 word- CHERUB..I put on the clothes, un-locked the door and set off trying to find this ‘office’.
Dear Journal,
I walked along the trying to find the office. I looked round and heaps of kids with the same shirt as me only different colours. I asked some people how to get to the office but they kept responding with can’t talk to orange shirt’. (These people have no manners)I took the elevator to level 2 and saw and saw a sign saying ‘office that way’. I followed the sign and saw a door labelled ‘office’. Finally, I said with a groan, as I got into the office. There was a man sitting at a big desk. He had big glasses that sat on bright blue eyes, white hair and in his 60’s.’Hello’ he said softly,’ I am Dr McAfee, and we are a top secret organisation called CHERUB. We want you to join us’ he said. ’OK’ I said carry on.
‘Well’ he said it’s entirely up to you it will be dangerous I can promise you that but it will be a great adventure and we can provide financial support’.’ We are like a MI6 for kids, there is about 300 kids on campus,’ we will also teach you-like school so you can get a decent job when you are older’.’ You can not tell any body about us’. Think about it overnight-if you say ‘yes’, we will see what you can do tomorrow…

THE END or is it…

Journal Writing in Totara 2!

Dear Journal,
I was out one day getting the groceries. Then I walked back to my hotel, because my apartment is on the 21 floor. I took the elevator; I get up to level 3 then the elevator stopped. I wonder why it stopped. It hit me, my groceries were too heavy. I was waiting in the elevator for 2 hours.

Dear Journal,
While I was stuck in the elevator I ate some ice cream that I brought when I done the groceries. Whale I was eating I thought of a way out. Ha-ha, I will climb out the top of the elevator then climb up the ropes. I got started; I jump up and grab the top of the elevator. I pulled my self up then I started climb the ropes. I got to the top; I had to find a way out. I will go out the vents.

Dear Journal,
I crawled through the vents, I ran to see the manager and I said the elevator is stuck can you fix it because my groceries are in there? I have frozens so could you find a way to fix it so I can get my groceries out? ‘O.k.’ said the manager. The manager gets someone to fix it and they get my groceries out in 1 hour.

Dear Journal,
When I got to my apartment I put my frozen into the freezer. Then I went down to see the manager to tell him I am having a party tonight and to come a long and bring the person that fixed the elevator so I can think him please.
 
THE END
