The Argument

By Ashton Griva, year 6, Amherst School

“GOAL!” I screeched into the microphone at the top of my of my lungs. “OK. So you beat me once."
“No Tom, you're just jealous.”

Their specific instructions were “Meet us at Sunny Sensation at 10 p.m.” I had to sneak out…

I got my basketball, Mum’s wig and a 12 hour video of a man snoring (don’t ask). My clone was complete! I took one final glance and to be honest, it didn’t look great but hey, it works in the movies! Right? When I arrived no one was there, nothing.

All of a sudden I woke up in a hospital bed; noises were surrounding me. My parents were told something, “He was out at Sunny Sensation and the anonymous killer ‘the ghost’ had trailed him. Our autopsy shows he his missing a kidney and spleen. He only has one day to live…”
