The glorious sun shone brilliantly in the sapphire sky. Columns of creamy white cloud glided carelessly in the vast sky. Lily woke up feeling perky and all ready to enjoy her Sunday. The lean and athletic girl jumped out of bed to wash up and have a hearty breakfast.
Pulling her long, brown shiny hair into a ponytail, Lily was excited for the first programme on her Sunday itinerary, which was to go roller blading with her cute puppy, Teddy.
After eating her breakfast, Lily put on her spanking new roller blades and leashed Teddy, holding the excited puppy in her hands. Both of them were in high spirits as they set off to the park that was a stone's-throwaway. Teddy was wagging his tail excitedly as he jogged while Lily cruised along the pavement with the fresh breeze caressing her face. Lily accelerated. Teddy picked up speed to catch up with Lily. Suddenly, Lily saw a slope ahead!
Sensing the grave danger ahead, Lily attempted to do an emergency brake, but it was too late. Lily crashed into a sturdy tree and bumped her head and scarped her arms. Lily called her parents and was sent to the hospital for treatment. She learnt to be more cautions next time.

A Suspicious Bag on the Bus
Written by : Joanne Lim Poi Ching Primary School (2011 - Primary 6 English)
"Wait for me, bus!" I yelled as I chased after the bus. I broke into a run and fortunately caught up with the bus. “ Thank you, Uncle!" I thanked the bus captain for waiting for me. I was puffing and panting and was streaming with sweat. I searched and scanned for a seat as I dreaded carrying a bag that was so heavy as if there were a ton of rocks place inside. After settling down, I plugged in my earpiece and listened to my music player.
When the bus reached the next stop, a man putting on a cap that covered his face hastily got up and walked to the exit of the bus. He left behind a suspicious black bag, which I assumed it was done on purpose. “Sir! You forgot your bag!" I shouted. However my words fell on deaf ears. He alighted the bus and soon disappeared among the block of flats.
Letting the matter rest for a moment, I walked towards the suspicious bag and kneeled down to take a good look at it. It was a very plain and an ordinary bag. I reached out to examine it, but before I could, a young woman quickly stopped me and said that something nasty could be contained inside. The suspicious bag drew attention from the crowd of passengers and many of them started gossiping to one another, while some started to verbalise their fears.
I immediately went up to the bus driver and informed him about the suspicious bag. He stopped the bus and then scurried over to the bag. As a safety precaution, the bus driver evacuated all the passengers in the bus and punched 999. He was relieved to hear that the police force was on their way. The passengers waiting outside showed concern in their eyes and asked the bus driver to leave the bus as well. The bus driver slowly got out.
A series of siren filled the air. The police force had soon arrived! The police car stopped in front of the bus, with the civil defence disposal squad in tow. They filed out of the vehicle with a superman-like aura. A group of traffic police cordoned off the entire stretch of road where the bus was parked. The road was closed and the traffic police stood on guard at the entrance to the road closure to redirect oncoming traffic to an alternative route.
Two bomb disposal experts boarded the bus to inspect the suspicious bag. Using a sophisticated scanning device to scan the bag's contents, they confirmed that the bag did contain a homemade time bomb. Everyone within a hundred-metre radius, including the bus driver and the police officers, were told to keep clear off the bus. The experts were armed with professional tools to defuse the bomb. “Ready, close one ... " they slowly used a pocketknife to cut the wires of the bomb. The successfully defused the bomb! The crowd cheered with excitement. They were like superheroes from the television. I admired them. The crowd was relieved, and I, too, was glad that all's well that ends well.
