In the Hole

One day Sam was walking in the woods listening to the rustling of the leaves.He was great at climbing trees and wanted to be an archaeologist when he was older.  He’d wanted to be an archaeologist since he was 5 and he’s 11 now. At school he got bullied a lot since he was Chinese. Once or twice Sam dug small areas of hills and al he ever found was a sheep hip bone.  What he hated the most was nettles. Every time he went to the woods he would come back with lumps all over his body.

On week later. Sam was on a mini-beast hunt with the school at the same woods. Sam new all around the woods so he knew where the spider nests where, the tadpoles and centipedes. Luckily he got paired up with his only friend Alex.  Alex has been his friend since they started school. First they went to the tadpoles and tried to pick them up with a bucket of water. Then they both strode along to a giant boulder and tried tipping it over but it was no use. Sam knew where an abandoned pick was so they raced there and back. Together they tipped over the rock and Alex and Sam nearly fell over with what they saw…

To there surprise there was no bugs or spiders. Well as they thought. They both bocked there eyes as something shiny was glancing in there faces from the sunlight but what was the shiny object. “Alex Sam what are you doing we’ve been looking all over for you we thought you were lost” roared the science teacher  tall and thin. Sam jumped and Alex slowly turned his head. All the girls giggled in the background which was not helping at all.

After school Sam went to the same hole that he was glaring in a phew hours ago. He could not believe what he had seen. A golden chest stood right in front of him with necklaces, rings and more jewellery was shining at his feet. What was this and who put it there? I must not tell anyone Sam thought but the other half thought he should tell the police. Going closer to the bright chest I realised it was to good to be true. Rummaging in the chest Sam found his mama lost necklace which means one thing…

Stolen. A voice called Sam from above him. One he reconised and sure enough standing above him was Alex. “What are you doing Alex, don’t do that I thought you were the police.
