My friend’s cousin is an alien you know, but sshh … don’t tell anyone its top secret.

I will tell you of the day he came to earth and by gosh it was a strange one at that.

Zoom came from the planet Zaysha and he looked like and average kid the only difference being that he was purple and he had a long tail that looked sort of like and elephant’s tail. So as you can imagine it would be a bit hard to miss him.

At lunch time we told Zoom to meet us in the dinner hall and that the dinner lady would provide the lunches, well … what a big mistake that was. By the time we got to the dinner hall Mrs Smyth our dinner lady was barely to be seen, apart from her shoes poking out from Zooms mouth.

We had to tie the spaghetti that was being served together and threw it like a lasso onto her foot to pull her out, poor Mrs Smyth didn’t know what had happened. She had to go and have a cup of sweet tea so she could calm down.

Afterwards Zoom explained that he thought the dinner lady was for eating, he even thought the cottage pie was really made from cottages and angel delight was made from angels.

We had a music lesson to go to next and Zoom got really excited. He went rushing in the room and grabbed the maracas, drums, symbols and the triangle.

When he turned to face us he had the maracas in his ears, the triangle hanging round his neck, the symbols were around his feet, and he was bumping his bottom off the drum, he was making that much noise he had all the dogs in the neighbourhood howling outside the window.

Mrs Winter the music teacher came in, she was not amused one bit. Her face was red and it looked as if her head was going to burst any second. We all got a right telling off and then another telling off from our head teacher.

I have never been so glad to hear the bell ring because that meant it was finally home time. I was so glad that nothing else could go wrong now that we where out of school.

It was finally time for Zoom to return home we all said our goodbyes as he got his supersonic rocket boots on. He blasted off into the sky faster than the speed of light.I have never seen Zoom since that day.

I don’t know how nobody at school hadn’t realised that Zoom was an alien, as most people might wonder why a person was purple and had a tail – but not at my school.

I heard that my teacher’s auntie is a mermaid and that the janitors uncle is King Kong. It might be just a story, but I think that anything is possible – you just need to see it to believe it.
