Pushing through the earth, the little brown fox scratched and sniffed the cool night air. His ears twitched as he stopped and listened. Chickens……yummy yummy. His stomach was growling as he hadn’t eaten for days. He couldn’t stop thinking about those juicy chicken thighs and he started to drool. He quietly approached the chicken coop. He stuck his head inside. Full of sleeping chickens, it was fox heaven. Suddenly, he heard a door slam and just as the famer came out, he ran away. The next night he decided to go back and try his luck again. Chickens are a very, very tasty snack.
“Err… why is the ground shaking?” I say, and for some reason a massive earthquake is surrounding me. “Wow I better run!” so then I was running as fast as I could. But a while later I was wondering… “what did make that earthquake?” then I saw a mine. When I went closer I heard the vibration again so I thought if something in the mine was causing the earthquake. When I walked in I found a huge mining drill that was pushing through the earth which was also making that vibration. “So maybe THAT was causing the eathquake!”
As I was pushing through the earth with my shovel I it a hard, rocky surface. I got out my drill and drilled my way through the surface. As I was drilling I fell into I room. I stood up while rubbing my head from my fall. I looked around in this room and I could tell it has no life or soul just rocks. I see in the wall colors shining, I walk over to the wall to see by surprise rubies there all over the room. I jump around with excitement. Then the floor brakes and I fall……

I wake up, I am on the floor again, the ground is shaking beneath me. This has been happening to me for weeks now. My mum and dad come rushing into my room to see if I am alright, ‘I am fine,’ I say, ‘what is it dad?’ ‘I am not sure,’ says dad, normally he knows everything. We go outside everyone is screaming and running everywhere, one person is running to us, dad grabs him and asks him what it is. ‘ It is a giant worm pushing through the earth and it is going to kill us all,’ reply’s the panicking man.

One day a little 5 year old boy called Geoff planted an apple seed. He watered it heaps and gave it very good soil to make it grow quickly. He went to live in Beijing for 2 years. When he returned the tree had been pushing through the earth and would have to be at least 800 metres tall! That’s almost 1 km! Geoff couldn’t believe what he saw, he started to climb it. It was really easy to climb, as easy as climbing a ladder. A couple of hours later he started to feel dizzy then he fell. R.I.P
