Tension Time by Kenny, age 11
Pigger lost his brain. Pigger wanted his brain back. He couldn’t think or learn, and he was not smart. It all started when Pigger did an experiment that made brains go away. His plan was to use his invention on other people because he was a misanthrope. He put spiders, broken glass, and a pair of scissors into a cup and heated them up so they turned to liquid. He was about to put the liquid mixture in his water gun, but he tripped on his bumpy floor and the mixture fell on his head and melted his skull off. His brain ran away.
‘’NOOO!’’ cried Pigger. ‘’Come back.’’
His brain looked liked a chewed up piece of pink gum with legs and arms. It threw a cactus at Pigger’s head. The brain flew with a jetpack to Pigger’s house. It broke the TV’s glass and metal parts. It took out the electricity. The brain was so smart that it made a thousand robots out of the broken metal and electricity. The robots punched Pigger in his face. The brain and the robot made their escape. Pigger saw them flying to the desert. (He saw them with his Super Sonic Eye.) Pigger followed them in his jet. The brain pressed a button on one of the robots. Then lasers came out of its chest. The lasers hit Pigger’s jet. It fell down.
“Ow,” said Pigger.
Then one of the robots stomped on Pigger. SMASH!!!
Pigger heard sirens. A police car rolled up next to him. One of the cops said, “Come with us.”
“I didn’t make those robots,” Pigger said. “My brain did!”
“That will get you twenty years of jail time,” the other cop said. He put handcuffs around Pigger’s wrists.
“NOOOOOOO!” cried Pigger.
Now the brain was free forever.
“Hooray!” said the brain.
