Rosie the Dragon

Once upon a time there lived a little dragon named Rosie. Rosie lived in a very small house with her foster mum names Jane. Jane was very nice and loved Rosie from head to toe. But there is one thing you should know about Rosie. Rosie was incredibly shy. Rosie became very shy girl since her mum and dad abandoned her on the wet cold and smelly streets.

One day Jane took Rosie to school and Rosie was very shy. When they got there everybody was looking at Rosie weirdly. There was something very strange about all the other children, they were green with red spikes and Rosie was purple with gold spike.

When everybody was doing their work Rosie noticed two girls had asked to go to the bathroom and suddenly the fire alarm went off and Rosie ran and grabbed the children out of the bathroom and they were safe!

Everybody stared at Rosie strangely and the teacher grabbed the girls and shouted at Rosie. The girls ran to Rosie and gave her a big hug and said “Thank you for saving us!” The teacher looked confused and everyone shouted “Hero Rosie! Hero Rosie!” and from then on Rosie was famous and not shy!

The end


Was both moving and funny. I love the idea of a fire alarm going off at school for dragons.
