Ms Lee’s Unlucky Day
Ms Lee was teaching in 5E classroom when a student fainted, another one got a fever, another one caught the flu, one vomited and one more broke his leg... Ms Lee had never seen anything like this in her last 30-40 years of teaching so she was in shock. Suddenly the students were green and had decaying skin. They hopped towards Ms Lee with their arms extended. Bang! Ms Lee fell onto her bedroom floor. She was relieved. It was just a nightmare but she banged her head badly when she hit the floor.
As Ms Lee cooked breakfast a bird was pecking on the kitchen window which startled her and caused her to burn her hand on the pan. When she was eating breakfast, her cat jumped on the table knocking over her glass and soaking the exam paper she marked in water. ‘What an unlucky day!’ Ms Lee thought as she was frantically trying to dry the exam papers.
Ms Lee was walking to school. She tripped on a traffic cone and twisted her ankle as she had a splitting headache. The world was spinning as Ms Lee tried to stand up. She could feel herself losing consciousness and the world went black.
Ms Lee awoke to find herself lying on a bed. Her leg was wrapped in a cast. A doctor was talking to her. He said, ‘Ms, your leg is broken and you have multiple wounds. Ms, what have you been doing this morning?’ Ms Lee replied, ‘It’s a long story.’

Cassie’s Unlucky Day
One cloudy morning, Cassie went in the woods to pick some apples. She arrived at the Fruit Tree Farm. Cassie picked up apples and put them in her straw basket.
After a while, thunder struck and it started to rain heavily. Cassie was running back to her cottage when she stepped into the mud. ‘Oh no! Mom will be so mad!’ she exclaimed. Cassie struggled out from the mud and started running again. Suddenly, her straw basket broke and all the apples tumbled down on the wet muddy floor. ‘Really!’ said Cassie feeling awful.
When she arrived back at her cottage, her mom was not at home. Cassie saw a note on the table. She read, ‘I’m going to the market and I took the umbrella with me. I hope you are not soaking wet by the time you read this note!’ Cassie groaned and went to the bathroom to wash herself. She opened the door and water flooded out – the roof was leaking hard because there was a big hole. She screamed and went to fetch the bucket from the kitchen. She hurried back with two big buckets and placed them under the hole. Then, Cassie took the mop and mopped the entire cottage dry.
After that, the rain stopped and orange sunlight shone from the window. It was already late afternoon. Her mom came back and they had dinner peacefully while sunlight faded slowly.

He arrived home at 2:00pm and he was starving. Ben decided to cook a meal by himself and he started preparing the ingredients. He was frying an egg when he burnt his arm.

At 5:00pm, he went to the playground to play with his friends. “Let’s play hide and seek together.” Ben advised. He was running towards the tree when he banged his head carelessly. He was crying loudly while walking back home sadly.

When he finally got off the bus, a police officer walked past him, and suddenly stopped. ‘Hey! Aren’t you that wanted thief?’ said the police. ‘No…I…’ Sam didn’t know what had happened.

Zoe’s Unlucky Day
Today was such an unlucky day for Zoe.
In the morning, Zoe was frying some pancakes for mom when she burnt her arm. After a while, Zoe set off for school but then it started to rain. Zoe waited for the bus for 20 minutes in the rain without an umbrella. Unfortunately, there was a traffic jam. The bus moved as slow as a snail so Zoe got off the bus and ran as fast as she could to the school. When she got to school, she was already 30 minutes late. The teacher was very mad and she told the teacher, ‘I am sorry but there was a traffic jam.’ But the teacher was still mad and asked to meet her parents.
In the afternoon, she got home and her house was robbed. She tried to call the police but the robber escaped. Zoe was so sad that she cried bitterly. She did not watch carefully when walking and got stuck in a mud pool.
At night when Zoe was getting ready for bed, she banged her head on the door. She should have been more careful.
Today was such an unfortunate day for Zoe. I hope it will all be luckier for her tomorrow.
