I'd done plenty of revision. Dad had tested me the night before, and I'd got almost everything right. But sitting in the exam hall, my mind was blank. No, that's not the word. My head wasn't empty; it was full. My brain was throbbing with memory, but not with the facts the teachers wanted me to recall. There was no room for them. All I could think about was what had happened on the way to school. Everything had been normal until I turned the corner by the bank and saw...

A police kangaroo in a police vest with a police helmet and badge, fighting a robber that was trying to rob the bank. As I turned the corner the police kangaroo kicked the robber into the van then turned and winked at me. He said “G’day mate, I’m Sargeant Skippy Jones”. I couldn’t believe what  was happening! I tried to forget about it but the thoughts kept coming to my head. Why was there a kangaroo dressed as a policeman? Why had he winked at me? At recess no one else was talking about it, but I knew it had to be real or was just a dream? What was happening to me….

Just then, I opened my eyes faster than a bullet and I was shocked! I didn't know why I dreamt that, it was bizarre. I felt relieved at the same time because it was only a weird dream, phew! Suddenly my mother angrily shouted "Alex, breakfast time, get out of your bed you daft child!" I got dressed and hurried down the stairs to our tiny, dusty dining room with cobwebs everywhere. I ate my beans and egg on toast as fast as a cheetah and rushed out of the door, and I remembered it was exam day today! I felt so relieved that everything had returned back to normal and I started my mental maths exam at 10 o'clock as planned.

Just after question 17, my mind went blank; I asked if I could go to the toilet to freshen up my mind and then I saw a shadowy figure. As I got closer, the shadow suddenly got bigger and bigger ...

At first Alex thought it was Mr King, the legendary old headmaster that he had heard rumours about. The rumour was that he had tried to kill the children! However, as the shadow got closer and bigger, he realised from the big floppy ears and the twitchy nose that it was just the kangaroo from his dream. He was dressed as the principle with a name tag on displaying Hoppy the Headmaster whispering “G’day Alex,”…

In astonishment I replied, “What are you doing here?”

He told me that I shouldn’t speak to people like that. It was rude.

“I am here to keep you safe,” the kangaroo told me. I explained to him that I thought he wasn’t real and was only part of one of my crazy dreams.  He didn’t seem very happy about that. I rubbed my eyes and scratched my head in absolute disbelief trying to make the apparition go away.  It was no use, Mr Hoppy was real!

Mr Hoppy told me that dark things where about to happen. And the where going to happen to me. I was scared. I screamed at him telling him to go away and leave me alone! Quickly sprinted back the classroom where everything appeared normal. As I pulled my chair out and sat at my desk figure kept on appearing in my blank imagination. I was extremely worried. What was going to happen next?

He woke up. He had no idea where he was; it felt like he was having amnesia. He looked at his hands and feet and saw that he was ok. He blinked and blinked and looked around. Tears running down her face, he saw his mother’s rosy face staring right back at him. He glared around cautiously “Where am I? What am I doing here?” he asked himself worriedly.

 A deep, masculine voice answered “you have been concussed.”

“How?” replied Alex

“You were in a test and the pressure made you fall off your chair and you hit your head badly.” The doctor said whilst picking up some x-rays to show him. The pictures showed that his skull was cracked. Not realizing what this meant he glanced at the doctor and realized that the doctor was also a kangaroo. As his mum and dad walked, or should we say hopped, in as a kangaroo he realized he was in the land of the kangaroos!
