Attack of the ipod & the Happy, Tiny Mom by Linda, age 8
A scientist made an experiment with dust. She got the dust under her couch at home. She was trying to make dust that could control electronic things. She took a rocket to Mars and collected green slime that contained dead bugs. She came back to Earth and mixed the slime with the dust from under her couch. The slimy dust started to puff up and flew out an open window and landed on somebody’s ipod.
The ipod began to walk, talk and wack people with its earphones, and torture people. It went to a blue house. The ipod knocked on the door and the owner came out.
The owner said, “Hello?”
The ipod wacked the owner with its earphones. The owner’s face was bloody and it looked like a tiger had scratched him. The ipod went to each neighborhood and wacked everybody in the city. But the ipod didn’t wack a girl named Emily because Emily wasn’t an ordinary girl. She was a super hero named Water Wave. When she was little, Emily got shot by a spray of green, slimy water. She felt something strange. Then she got super powers. She could control water and water animals.
Emily heard a wack!! It was the ipod monster. It was in Emily’s neighborhood. After school Emily heard the wack again. It was still coming from Emily’s neighborhood. She ran home as fast as she could. When Emily got home, she was breathing hard. Emily stopped breathing for a moment. Emily’s parents were gone!! She looked all over the house. Emily heard the wack again. She heard a scream. She heard her mom yelling, “HELP!!”
Emily turned blue and grew scales. Now she was Water Wave. Water Wave saw the ipod take away her mom. “What are you doing with my mom?” Water Wave said. “Mom!!”
“I will experiment on you with my invention, the Shrink Ray,” said the ipod. The ipod found his shrink ray in the middle of town. “Yes,” he said in a deep, dark voice. The ipod went to the Shrink Ray and shrunk Emily’s mom.
Emily’s mom screamed, “Help me!” in a high, squeaky voice.
Water Wave was hiding under a fire hydrant, so she busted it open with her fist. Then a burst of water flew through the air and shot the ipod down to the ground. The ipod exploded in the air and never came back ever. The evil spirit never took over the ipod again.
Emily’s mom saw a tiny man on a leaf in the forest. “Hello?” the tiny mom said.
“Mommy?” said the tiny man.
“What?” said the tiny mom.
“Are you my mommy?”
“Who are you?”
“I’m a mom, but not your mom.”
“Do you want to come over for dinner?”
“Here’s some sauce that I found on the sand,” said Emily’s mom. “You can put it in the chicken that fell from the sky.”
The tiny mom got stuck in the chicken while she tried to pour sauce on it. “Ahhhhhhhh! I’m stuck in the chicken!”
“What?” said the tiny man.
“I’m not tall enough!”
“Ok.” So the man found a piece of string and climbed up the chicken then threw it to Emily’s mom. “Hold on to this!”
“Ok!” The woman grabbed onto the string and climbed out. “Thanks.”
“You’re welcome.” The man and the woman ate the chicken and fell asleep and fell in love and got married.
