It was a normal day in Comox. I went to school in the morning like always. My best friends, Kassidy, Lyric and I all met up in our classroom right after the bell rang for us to go inside. We talked and shared stories about our weekends like we do every Monday morning. Our teacher walked into the room and we ran back to our desks. Everyone at Brooklyn was having a great day… Until lunch time.
We sat in the classrooms watching the clock slowly pass time. We waited and waited to go outside for what felt like hours but was really only a few minutes. 59, 58, 57, I counted down the seconds until the bell rang and I could run around on the field with my friends. 5, 4, 3, 2…
“AAGHH!” the class screamed.
I was so busy watching the clock that I didn’t know what happened. I ran to Kassidy’s desk. “What happened!” I gasped.
“I’m not exactly sure,” she said. “Someone dressed as a zombie or something jumped out in front of the window.”
Lyric came over. “I’m sure it’s just a prank.” she claimed.
“Yea probably,” Kassidy and I agreed.
We looked around. “I don’t think this is a prank,” I slowly said. Children were running around the school screaming and crying while the teachers tried to calm them down, but they just made it worse.
An announcement came on. “Everyone please stay calm, your parents are on their way to pick you up. Until then, lock the doors, turn off the lights and make NO noise!” our principal said in a very worried voice. Everyone started rushing back to class.
My class sat in the corner of the room in lockdown position. It was so quiet you couldn’t even hear a pin drop. Something started banging on the door. The next thing you know there were zombies running after all our classmates. Luckily for me my friends are super smart and came up with a plan.
“Follow me!” Lyric whispered. We had no time to question her because half of the class had already been turned into zombies! We quickly followed Lyric. She lead us to a storage room across the hall from our class where it was safe to talk.
She explained her plan. “Ok, first we will gather supplies from here and make armour and swords in case we get attacked, then we sneak up to the science lab and create a potion that turns zombies back into humans, then finally we go out and save the world!”
“That sounds like a lot of work,” Kassidy mentioned.
“Yea wouldn’t it be easier if we just ran home?” I suggested.
“Trust me,” said Lyric, “I know what I’m talking about.” Lyric is very smart so we decided to go along with her plan.
Step 1:We searched around for any materials we could find that would work to make armour and swords. We emptied out lots of cardboard boxes and cut them into shapes of shields. Next we used the same material but a bit stronger to make swords. One of the boxes we emptied was full of glitter, paint, stickers and lots of craft supplies so we decorated our armour.
Step 2: We sneaked out of the supply room as sly as we could be. As we walked up the stairs, Kassidy fell and twisted her ankle. Lyric and I ran to help her get up. It looked like she slipped on some sort of zombie brain! Once we reached the science lab we started mixing together a whole bunch of different ingredients. We had about 10 bottles each of potions we created in little bags we found. There were some weird combinations like mushrooms, root beer and grass! Once we were satisfied with our creations we had to risk our lives testing them out.
Step 3: This was the hard part. We rushed down stairs to find hundreds of zombies crowded in the staff room. At first none of them noticed so Kassidy went along and threw her first potion at them. They all turned around. It was terrifying. Slowly they stretched out their arms and walked towards us. We all madly tossed our potions at them until we only had one container of potion left each. This was our last hope. If none of them worked we would become zombies and never turn back to humans.
On the count of three we all chucked our last potion at them. Whoosh. The bags flew through the air and all landed on top of each other. They exploded in front of the zombies and splashed all over the room. One by one the zombies started transforming back to their regular selves. The students and teachers were all humans again!
“We did it!” Kassidy, Lyric and I all turned towards each other and shouted at the same time. Everyone crowded around us and thanked us for saving them.
The next month Kassidy, Lyric and I all were awarded one million dollars for being so amazing and saving the world! We were so proud of ourselves for creating potions that transform zombies back to people!
I hope you enjoyed my story!
