The Bear and the Hare

As the leaves fell, the autumn breeze whistled through the forest. Below the tall and golden trees a blanket of colourful leaves covered the forest floor. Happily two friends strolled through the forest. the brown Bear had his best friend Hare on his back. They were both afraid that their time was nearly up.

A small, unique snowflake floated down and landed on the bears wet nose. He yawned slowly in exhaustion. The Hare looked up at the Bear one last time. Her ears flopped down in sadness as tears filled her eyes.

Whilst the two friends walked towards the beautiful Christmas tree they saw their friends placing the first few touches to the Christmas tree all the other animals were very excited to decorating there were only a few things up like some ball balls. The Bear was upset that he couldn’t take part in decorating.

Slowly tears dropped from the Hare’s cheek onto the frosty floor. As she sat and watched her best friend walk away for his winter sleep. They both new that they wouldn’t see each other all winter. As the Hare thought that the Bare didn’t care that he would sleep all winter and leave her with no one to open their presents with the Bear was finding it very difficult to hold in all his tears.

Day after day, night after night the Bear slept in his damp, dark and cold cave. As he slept the weather changed from golden autumn into cold harsh winter. And other animals were getting ready for Christmas by rapping presents and finishing the tree.

Running like the wind the Hare crossed the frozen river and ran on the unstable log. She felt excited to see her best friend even if he couldn’t see her. She was carrying a small surprise for him. AS she got to his cave , she saw her best friend asleep he was curled up into a big ball. She placed the gift at the entrance of the cave and left.

Hearing the sound of laughter the Hare sat down all by her self in front of the beautiful Christmas tree that was finished. She watched her friends open their presents and play with them. All the others were happy.

Scanning the horizon for any sign of her best friend. Bear saw how wonderful the tree looked now it was finished. The Hare was over the moon to spend the first Christmas with Bear. Everyone was happy to see Bear.

Quickly gathering the Bear all his friends greeted him. Hare galloped over to her best friend and jump on his back. They were once again reunited. They both felt like they were going to explode with joy.

From far away the animals could hear a mysterious ticking sound. Over the hills and mountains lay a newly unwrapped alarm clock. The mystery of how Bear had his first Christmas was now solved. It was thanks to his best friend Hare.

THE PIANO

Enchantingly,a depressed and lonely old man played on a ancient piano in a dark and gloomy room. His fingers glided across the  keys producing a magical sound that forced memories into his mind. He felt another hand trying to play as well , he slowly looked to see a kind and gently face when he realised it was his wife who had passed away a few weeks back, she lent over and kissed his cheek with her silky lips then with a blink of an eye she had vanished.

suddenly, another memory had forced it’s way into his mind it was him when he was in the devastating war in which he lost his brother ,he was a medic and they were behind a  old ruined wall his brother was ready to shoot he said “shall I go “the old man replied”no wait it’s not safe”! His brother crouched down BANG!!!!!! he had been shot… the old man ran over to his brother who was surrounded in a pole of midnight red his brother was coughing and finding it hard to breathe. “hold on brother I will go get help” but it was to late he was dead .The old man asked his dead brother “why you?????”

Happily, another memory was trying to be realised but before he could stop it he realised it was a happy one all the  sad ones had stopped this memory was him as a little boy when he received a present that was  rapped up in a blue rapping paper with a red ribbon rapped on it he opened the box and it was a horse toy he pulled it out the box and went round the old piano his memory suddenly stopped and he saw his grandson ridding it round then his grandson saw him playing and joined him to play the last key how fortunate to have such an amazing grandson.
