Pocket Money

It was pocket money day and Amber couldn’t wait. She took the money and ran down to the shops to buy a package of watermelon-raspberry-strawberry-red apple gum. Ever since her friend, Maggie, had told her how delicious it tasted, Amber had wanted to try it. Now that she had her pocket money, there was nothing to stop her.

She ran into the shop and bought a packet. She ran home and sat outside in her back garden. Harry, her dog, came running up to her, sniffing the gum. “Would you like to try some, Harry?” The dog barked so Amber put a piece in his mouth. “Now I’ll try some.”

Both of them chewed the gum. “This is delicious, isn’t it Harry? I can taste the watermelon.” She chewed a while longer. “Now I can taste the red apple.” After a few more chews, “I can taste the strawberry and the raspberry. This is so good. Harry can you blow bubbles?”

Amber blew the biggest bubble she could. It was so big that she floated off the ground into the air. One of her shoes fell off and landed next to Harry.

The dog blew a bubble too and soon he floated through the air with Amber. They floated above the park, above the school and above the church on the corner. When Amber had enough, she sucked the bubble back into her mouth and dropped to the ground. Luckily she landed on top of a circus tent and slid down to the ground without getting hurt. Harry did the same. “That was great fun!” Amber laughed and petted the dog. “I’m glad I bought some of this bubble gum. Tomorrow we’ll have another piece and blow more bubbles!”

Harry and Amber ran home. That night she put the packet of bubble gum on the drawers next to her bed and dreamed of the big bubbles she’d blow tomorrow.
