Me, Wayne and Sarah met up on a hot, dark Hawaiian beach at 10 o’clock

at night. Sarah came in a big purple dune buggy, it was funny because we

were all supposed to be walking. We saw a turtle and a dolphin, then we

found a rainbow fossil. It was in the different coloured ocean where we were

swimming. It was exciting and I picked it up. It felt nice; it was smooth and



I showed my friends the fossil and they were excited. I nearly fell

over with excitement, I screamed, my heart was beating fast. I couldn’t wait to

find out if it had magic powers. It was pointy, it was the size of a water bottle,

coloured red, yellow, orange, blue, green, pink and purple in swirls.


I pointed it at Wayne.


Suddenly, he started sparkling, a tail formed behind him, his body

became long like a pony, he got a white mane and a horn formed on his

forehead. I screamed. I felt awkward, I wondered if he could fly or if I could

ride him? He galloped fast down the beach. Me and Sarah went home to our

cabin, wondering if he would come back.


‘Should we turn more people into unicorns?’ I questioned Sarah.

‘That’s a great idea. We want to make everyone turn into a unicorn,

to make changes to the world.’


‘Yes, we should because people should be kinder and have more

friends, like a unicorn.’


We ended up finishing the conversation and going to bed. Wayne did

not come back. We went to sleep wondering if he would ever come back.
