Lady Splash and Her Fellow Heroes
One sunny afternoon, Shannon, Alia, and Marinette, were at the Acorn Park, studying for their English test. As Alia was heading home, an old woman gave her a box and said,
“Take the necklace, my dear, and wear it.”
As Alia wore it, the woman continued,
“Now say, ‘Splash Splash.”
As Alia said these words, she transformed into a superhero with a white shirt and a matching mask with colors splashed on them. Alia began to say,
” How did-"
“Be quite, you must not tell anybody about your secret identity, Lady Splash.”
"Thank you.” Replied Alia.
At the other end of London, an old man did the same thing to a boy in Aliya’s class, Brandon! The man told him to take the shoes and wear them. As Brandon wore them, the man told him to say White Tail. As Brandon said this phrase, he transformed into a white cat. The man told him that now he was Cat Blanc.
It happened to another girl in the 9th Grade too, her name was Katrine. The same woman gave her a lipstick to say ‘Show Time’. Now she is Ms. Violette, she wore violet from head to toe.
As all of these kids were transformed, Louden the evil villain said,” Oh, I feel the power of the three corners rising. My worms, we will strike out tomorrow afternoon"
The next day Louden attacked the school and tried to kidnap the students. But the three superhero kids were quick to act. Brandon, Alia and Katrine changed into their superhero costumes and saved the school by fighting together to protect the students.
The evil Louden and his worms were defeated and sent to prison to spend the rest of their lives behind bars. Thus the school and the students were saved by the three superheroes kids who were chosen by the old man and woman.
