” It’s all over, the bad guys are beaten, and it’s finally my day off, ” I said with a smile on my face. Tired, exhausted, zonked, as I walked out of the newly refurbished football stadium or used to be. Suddenly, rapidly running straight at me was Alex- who is my best friend- launched me up into the air and i smashed my head into the cold, concrete floor. He had just informed me that the EA were starting a new world football tournament and our team have been nominated to compete there. Amazed, excited, ready, I knew that my team and I could do it. Rapidly running, to the clubhouse I could feel how excited they’d be when I told them the news.
As I arrived at the clubhouse, late as usual for the daily meeting I kicked the oak wood door open. Everyone seemed to be down. What’s the matter I said as I grabbed a cola from the fridge and took a seat on the sofa dyed brown. They said that all of our parents had disappeared.As I told the news the hearts lifted because we had a chance to save them. But the frustration we all felt was unmeasurable.
Our team had been told to meet at the stadium tomorrow for our first football match.
Christmas came. It was 1970 and back then children would ask for food more than anything else. Now children ask for presents and electronics. This is a story about myself in 2178.
It was three days, before the Nativity. I was the Roman soldier,but a very anxious one. I always made mistakes but took in the feedback and made myself better. The people sung carols, for Christmas time was near. Christ himself was born. Just like Christ I was born on Christmas. Which means I only get one present from each person because my birthday presents are my Christmas presents. Anyway, after a long day of practice I finally nailed it. I was confident on my lines and knew everything wasÂ going to be all right. But it wasn’t because all my friends didn’t like me because I got the part they all wanted. But, I plowed through the pain not daring to let it go.
The night of the nativity came and everyone was there. As their intimidating eyes stared at me I started to get frightened. It was my part and I spluttered the words out, and honestly sounded like a pig. The lead part was Francis, who hogged the stage to himself, and he was terrible. He interrupted other people’s part and everyone gossiped about him after the show. His mom pretended she was somebody else’s motherÂ and started joining in with the gossip.
After the performance, I went home as usual and was shocked to find a turkey roasting in the oven, my grandparents sitting at the table and getting a round of applause as I walked around the room with a startled look on my face. I had completely forgot that today was my birthday. Instead of getting one present I got two. What was the occasion I thought to myself. As I looked at everyone I saw a loving look in all their eyes. Because today I remembered all my lines and didn’t use the script.
Meanwhile, at Francis house he usually got five presents from each person, but today he only got one from the whole family. He had a disgusted look on his face and screamed. The family rapidly ran out of the room because in his stocking was coal. For in my stocking was a note which said:
You really have pushed yourself this year therefore each family member has been given some extra money to get you these.

Today was the Christmas celebration. I opened my presents first thing in the morning, but instead of seeing the object I desired the most, I saw a strange red glove. I tried it on and it felt like a cloud was on my hand, even though I have never felt a cloud before. My hand started sweating – it was stuck to my hand – so I tried to take it off. I started getting nervous.Â I didn’t feel that soft feeling on my hand that I had before. The glove strangled my hand and my arm, because I could see the color purple starting to flow across my entire arm. I opened my eyes. It was just a dream … for now.
It was night. Alberto was so excited for his presents to be under the tree. Then, morning arrived. He was still asleep though. When Alberto woke up; when he went downstairs; when he saw the presents, then he knew Santa had come last night. As Alberto opened the strangered box, he was nervous, because he did not know if he got the Xbox 360, with Fifa 15, and Minecraft that he had asked for. After everyone opened their presents, they had a celebration for the Newborn king, and Christmas. Then it was night again. When morning arrived, they got ready for Boxing Day. They were very excited to celebrate the New Year.
RobertÂ felt nervous. Today was his birthday and he wondered if anyone would remember that it was his special day. It was time to celebrate as he turned 13 years old, a teenager at last! He waited anxiously for the postman. Finally, at 11am, someone knocked loudly at the door.Â Robert opened it and found a strange-looking parcel on the doorstep. It was covered in red paper, a funny oblong shape,Â with a blue ribbon wrapped all around it. He could not wait to open it and pulled the paper off excitedly. Inside was a skateboard with shiny, flashing wheels. The card inside read, ”Happy Birthday son!Â Love mum and dad.” He could not wait to show his friends.
