    At the beginning a girl was at a gym and saw a glowing door. The glowing door leads the girl to a lovely ocean. When she went into a lovely ocean she spotted a glowing fish and when the girl went in she got all wet and she was moving. When the girl moved her head she saw a shark and got scared and ran away. She was really scared and first she was hiding behind a pink weed and the girl saw the door and ran away frightening. There was a shark that was saying to the girl, I think the trousers are mine.

    THE END!
    The girl felt quite normal when she was reading the comic .When she saw the glowing fish she felt a lot happy and also wanted to get one of the glowing fish. But when she swathe terrific shark she felt really petrified and scared. When she was out of the ocean she was really cold and never wanted to go in there ever again. So she did learn her lesson for the day.

    The girl reached at the fantasy world by entering into the washing machine and she swam along with the happy sea creatures. The girl was petrified when she saw the terrifying, ugly and gruesome shark. The girl was scared and also happy in the fantasy lovely world.

    When I was watching my cartoon I glanced at the TV and saw a portal and I knew that this portal will take me on an amazing adventure. I stepped myself in the mysterious portal and when I was in the portal…I was amazed at the scenery was high above in the soft clouds which were like a comfy bed. Whilst I was strolling across the clouds I saw some magical angels. I thought I will play with them and we had lots of amusing time together. All of a sudden I heard a sound I thought it was one of the angels but it was the cruel bad guy and then I ran out of the TV.
