Two children and it

Chapter 2

Frantically, I stuffed the Coco Pops in my mouth so I could help mum and dad pack up. By the time I had finished, mum and dad were busy bees around the house as they were looking for blankets and our picnic basket. Sneakily, I added my favourite chocolate bar and a big packet of skittles. We all checked we had everything so we could leave the house. Mum gasped and realised what we were missing. “What kind of picnic is there with out a picnic basket”? asked mum. She quickly grabbed the picnic basket and left the house. Birds were choirs of angels as they sang whilst the dark clouds of the sky were slowly morphing into a bright field of blue flowers. Glancing behind as I walked, I suddenly saw a man following us. I wondered who it could be. Laura’s complaining distracted me from thinking about the man. Laura was complaining about having blisters on her feet but mum snapped back at her, saying she should have worn her socks. After that quarelling, we all walked in silence until I noticed we were at the park.

Chapter 1

I could not wait. I was in the kitchen, eating my breakfast with Laura whilst mum and dad were packing. The stuffy air was clinging to my face like a scared cat whilst the taste of bacon flowed through the air and into my nostrils like a river. The sun shone through the window, blinding my eyes. Today, I was going on a picnic to Central Park.
