County Clare 2020: A Day in My Life
by Ryan D Nolan

I woke up and was wondering what day it was, then I crept down the stairs so my mom would not hear me, then I saw flashing yellow lights. I put on my runners and my clothes and packed a bag and it was still there blinking outside my front door. I went up the stairs and woke up my mom and she packed a bag as well and put on her shoes and clothes and rushed down the stairs excitedly because we had wished this would happen, when a shooting star passed last night. We couldn’t believe it had come true.

We left the house, with our dog and got on the jet. The jet took off on auto pilot we were on big comfy seats and beds, our dog was on the worlds best reviewed dog bed and we were on the best and comfiest reviewed beds over all and best chairs. We had a look out the window and saw all the trees and houses, we were feeling a little hungry so we had a snack and then we had a rest on our comfy beds. It got better, there was a PS4, there I could play online with my friends and I had my account set up with all my skins.

As the hours passed by we went for a walk around the 30 ft wide and 90 ft long jet and we found parachutes. We looked at each other in shock and prepared for our big jump. This had been part of our wish. We put on our parachutes and we jumped out of the jet in style, the dog Rocky as well. When we landed back at home, it was different, when we walked through the door we were in a luxury hotel in France with our dog. I knew we were in France because I could see the Eiffel Tower. I went swimming in the outdoor pool, it was the life.

Then we heard a strange noise up in the sky I looked up and saw a tridactyl flying around and catching people. We decided to run as fast as we could and then we tripped over a tree root and fell in to a hole, we were falling hard but we had no parachutes. When I opened my eyes. I was in my room wondering what day it was no jet, no France and no tridactyl, then I crept down the stairs so my mom would not hear me, I watched tv while I was waiting for my breakfast. I do my school work I go on the ps4 and then for a walk. Life is boring every day is the same since the middle of March the only thing that is fun is when everything comes to life in the middle of the night speaking of sleeping it is getting late time to go to sleep. I wonder what tonight’s dreams will be.
