A Magic Unicorn
One day there was a girl whose name was Rose. She had long, curly brown hair, her eyes were as blue as the sky and her lips were as red as a rose. Her father died when she was five so she hardly saw her mum because she worked.
Rose spent most of her time outside making the garden beautiful. Her Mum bought her flowers for the garden and trees but Rose did all the work.
She didn't mind not having friends because she was always being creative, she built a treehouse with a tree swing and in her treehouse there was a mattress, pillows and quilts.
Rose always thought about her dad. She missed him very much but she didn't talk about it. Her mum didn't work on Sundays and Mondays so they made cakes or played some games. Rose's mum loved her garden and she was proud of Rose, she said nicely "I love what you did, thank you."
"Thanks mum, mum can I have a puppy to keep me company”, her mum agreed.
She walked to the pet shop and saw a weird dog with a small horn on her; she went in and said, "how much is that sparkly, white dog?"
"£20 please" he said
"I'll take her" Rose replied. When she got home Rose's mum said "She's beautiful, what are you going to call her" Rose replied "Sparkles!"
As time went by the dog got bigger and the horn on her head got bigger. One day Rose went out and was having a cup of tea, she looked at Sparkles and DROPPED the cup on the floor.
She shouted "MUM!!!!!!"
Her mum came rushing out, they both noticed that Sparkles was no dog. She was a magic unicorn.
Rose's mother said "Darling, what shop did you get her from"
She replied "Magic place"
Rose's mum and Rose had fun riding on sparkles but they never told anyone about it.
The secret was theirs forever!
