My Night at The Ballet:2

My Night at The Ballet:2

 

Last night was a Friday night and starting from five o’clock Ruby and I were waiting anxiously for Izzy to arrive. She was having a sleepover. She arrived and Ruby and I ran to her. We excitedly told her that our billionaire Granny and former Queen Godmother were taking us to see the ballet Swan Lake in the Mwldan Royal Theater. We ran inside…

One hour late a white limo pulled up and we ran downstairs and got in and said hi to our Granny. Then we drove of…

When we arrived at the theater our Godmother was waiting for us. She led us to a table she had reserved. On the table there were lots of cakes: banana cake, chocolate brownies, flapjacks, little cucumber sandwiches and elderflower cordial. We sat down and ate half of it and saved the rest for later. When we had finished we entered the ballet…

We sat down on our special red velvet seats and ate some of our sweets. The lights dimmed, and the ballet started…

(to be continued)

The ballet was split into two halves’. We watched the first half in awe of their flawless leaps and graceful twirls. When the first half finished we went into the restaurant and ordered some drinks. Ruby, Izzy and I had Raspberry Fanta and Granny and Sue had elderflower cordial. After we finished our drinks we went into the theatre to watch the second half…

During the second half a Shadow suddenly started dancing of its own accord! Every on stopped dancing and stared at it. The shadow, loving the attention it was getting, grinned. It started doing complicated leaps and twirls. The audience gasped. Some took out their phones and started taking photos. I had once read a book where something like this happened. I quickly explained my plan to Ruby and Izzy. We told Granny and Sue that we needed the toilet and ran out…

(to be continued)

We jumped into the limo and I drove us to the nearest farm. We bought two sheep then drove to Tesco bought some Fanta and a book then drove at full speed back to Mwldan gaining Granny two speeding tickets. When we got back to Mwldan we quickly ran onstage, Izzy and Ruby carrying the sheep while I held the Fanta and the book. The Shadow was too busy dancing to notice us. I put the book on the floor and opened it at page 200 then poured the Fanta onto it. Izzy and Ruby got the sheep to bite half the book each. The book suddenly glowed with a blinding light which made everyone cover their eyes…

(to be continued)

When we opened them, we were back in our seats and the shadow had gone. The dancers were dancing as if nothing had happened. I explained to Izzy and Ruby that no one but us remembered what had happened and that we mustn’t mention it to anyone else…

(to be continued)

The ballet finished, and we left discussing what we liked best. When we were asked what part we liked best we looked at each other and smiled. We got into the limo and granny drove us home. When granny dropped us of she gave us the leftover cakes and we went inside…

(to be continued)

We got into our room and had a midnight feast. During the feast we wrote down everything that had happened and put it onto our website as fiction.
