I was too scared to go home.  I thought Mum would go mad when she found out that I’d taken her camera to school and lost it.  So I just walked.  I suppose I knew that things would only get worse.  Now she’d be angry with me for being late, too.  It was getting dark.  A man came up to me asked me if I was lost.  “Yes,” I said, “and my Mum’s going to kill me.”

“No, she won’t,” he laughed, and for an instant I thought he was going to show me the way to the bus stop.  But his smile turned in to a grimace.  “She won’t kill you,” he said, reaching out towards me.  All I could do was run.

… I kept running without turning my back. Then, I stopped to catch my breath. As I look back, I didn’t see anyone or anything, I was lost. Meanwhile, her mom was frantic, she screamed, “WHERE IS MY DAUGHTER!!!” Then tears drop from her red, puffy eyes.

 The neighbors felt sorry for her but none of them have any clue where she is. Some went out and tried to calm her, but nothing worked. One of the neighbors, Mr. Jackson, remembered seeing her with a mysterious man. Her mom then called the police; the police asked her neighbor if he saw the man’s face. Mr. Jackson said, “I couldn’t see his face because of the darkness of the alley way, but I remember seeing him grinning evilly.”

As the police search for her, they found a pink bag out on the street. Her mom instantly noticed that it was Melissa’s bag. As the police continue their search on Melissa’s bag, they found a film camera and a phone. When they looked through her messages, they noticed that she texted her friends to help her find the camera that her mom lend her. The police now understand why she didn’t come home.

Melissa woke up and found herself in a wooden lodge with nothing but a cooking pot. She came out of the house but heard footsteps. She hurried back to the lodge and pretended to sleep. The door opened with a creak. She held her breath waiting for what is coming.

I heard footsteps and a dog barking. The door opened even more and I saw the silhouette of a man and a pit bull. I hate dogs, ever since my mum got bitten by one. The man came up to me and said "What do you think your doing in my lodge this is private property!" My heart skipped a beat as I was so nervous. What would he do to me? Would he call the police?  I got up and ran straight to the door, bashed it open and ran out into the cold crisp darkness. I tried to remember the way home but my mind had gone blank. I searched for my phone in my pockets and realised that it was in my bag. I kept on running into the darkness and realised that I was running around in circles because I ended up back at the lodge. I saw the man again and  this time he got hold of me. I screamed, there was no one else there so I tried to struggle out of the man's grip but he had a really strong grip of me. He had his phone out and I saw 99...

Before he could dial another number I heard a loud crack and he fell to the floor, a dark pool of blood spreading from a jagged hole in his head. I saw this as my only opportunity to escape and sprinted deep into the forest. After about 200 metres I thought it safe to have a quick glance back at my pursuer. Only to find an empty path, I stopped, puzzled, I wanted to get as far from this dreaded place as I could, so I turned to carry on running. As I turned my bad friend was just standing there, I saw he had the cooking pot in his hand, before I knew what was happening I fell to the ground and everything went black.
I woke to the sound of seagulls and the nauseas stench of rotting fish. I looked around only to find I was locked in a cage. I was terrified but the thought of seeing my friends again gave me the courage to walk to the door. I realised I could still pick the lock with one of the hair grips left in my hair, I did this and sprinted the full length of the boat, without thinking I dive overboard only to realise that there was no land within sight, no one had noticed I had gone, so I grabbed some driftwood and fell asleep, exhausted.
I woke on a Caribbean looking island, only to find a group of indigenous people poking me with a staff, I was scared stiff, but then he said, “you! Queen of Palm Island.”

Suddenly, they all bowed down to me. Not knowing what they were doing, I stood up quickly! They took me to their leader, where he decided to give me 3 wishes!!! This all took a while to sink in. After I had got over it, I started to think what I could use the wishes for. Maybe I could stay here a while, then use 1 of the wishes to get home. But what should I use the other 2 wishes for?

I decided to think about the 3 wishes. Maybe I should wish for my mum to know that im okay and safe but would that be a waste of a wish? Or maybe I should wish for the things I’ve ever wanted but would that be sensible? But I’ve definitely decided one of my wishes should be to go home and see everyone, so I can tell them my scary rollercoaster of a story in how I got here. They’ve been treating me so nicely on this island that im not sure that I want to go home….at home it just seems that I don’t get treated with enough respect. It’s like im nothing there whereas here it’s a different story im literally treated like royalty. I’ve decided that my wishes will be…Send a letter home to my mum. My second wish is all the food in the world, then my final wish is somewhere nice to sleep, after I said all this out loud they all came true without me realising but there was one thing left, how will I get home?

As I was thinking, an islander named Iyzeah asked me what was wrong. I said that my wish was to go home. He dug in the sand and pulled out a book half the size of me. He said, "Rule #247, no go home wishes." I screamed, "WHAT?!?!" I then decided to wish for a boat. He said, "Rule #9, no wishing for boats." I was puzzled. I grabbed his shirt and said, "I've been through too much just for a camera, so get me home or I will turn your nose upside down so you drown when it rains!" Two hours later, I was home. Now, all I have to do is think of a lie about the camera for mum.
