The Present

Anxiously and unexpectedly his mam walked through the door and said, “Hey Sweetie sorry I’m home late. Why don’t you open the present I got you?”

Curiously the boy said, “For me?” in a nervous way. Okay the boy thought suspiciously. He paused the game and opened the box when out came… a cute puppy! Just when it went to lick the boy`s face he realised it only had three paws.

Suddenly threw the dog on the floor and kicked the dog. The lay there for a moment but then spotted a red ball. As he ran to get the ball, the dog ran into the cupboard and hurt himself briefly.

Casually the dog stated to play with the red ball then the boy kicked the ball into the cardboard box. The dog ran after the red round ball.

Suddenly the dog found out that the boy was looking at him then the boy said, “Let’s play.”

The Present

Addictively playing on his violent, vicious video game, which was as loud as the big bang, the boy controlled the blood-filled battlefield. His eyes couldn’t decide which position to stay in; they were as discombobulated as the smartest sloth (which in my opinion isn’t that smart!). Concentrating carefully, his elastic fingers adjusted every split second and even less. Attached to the sofa, there was no way he was going to budge a millimetre, or was he? At the time he was breathing heavily and his heart was racing faster than a speeding bullet.

Eventually, his mother threw open the door holding a big, brown mystery parcel. Irritating the boy, the mum almost threw the box in front of him. Immediately, he dodged it. A strange noise appeared out of nowhere and mum soon realised the phone was ringing. “Open your present!” she insisted and then ran to answer her phone.

“For me?” he asked himself and decides to open it. Cautiously, he held the flap and slowly began to open it.

BOO! Without warning, the flaps were thrown open by a… DOG!?

A smile, that reached the boys ears, spread across his face until he realised it was three-legged.

The Present

The Present
Staring at the TV screen , which was showing a violent video game, the boy wrestled with his controller trying to beat his high score. Suddenly his Mum came through the door holding a big brown box. She placed the box cleverly right in front of the boy. But what was in the box ? While the boy tried to ignore the box his Mum walked away to pick up the phone but as she did so she said, “Why don’t you open the present I got you ?!”
Now answering the phone his Mum walked up stairs leaving the boy alone with his present . Soon the curiosity got the better of him and he opened the box to find … A PUPPY! Wagging forcefully the puppy’s tail could have broke the speed limit on the motorway. Now so excited the puppy stretched out to lick his newly found owner but to his surprise the boy yelled, “You have to be kidding me !”, as he threw the fragile puppy on the floor . You’re probably wondering why would he do this ? Well the reason behind this awful deed was that the puppy only had three legs , but is this any excuse?!

Lying on his back the puppy saw a red ball under the cabinet, so he bounced onto his paws and grabbed it . Bounding up to his owner the puppy dropped the ball on his foot. “UUUUUGGH!” shouted the boy while kicking the puppy away. Ok, ok ,ok can I pause this story for a minute, does this boy even have a heart ?

Once again the puppy bounced onto its paws and stumbled to the boy and dropped the ball on his foot . Giving in to the puppy’s cuteness the boy took the ball , standing up the boy revealed that he only had one leg and was using crutches . Wait ,wait , wait he had lost a leg too , I didn’t see that coming!

“We’ll be outside!”  shouted the boy so his Mum could hear him. The boy opened the door , stepped outside , and threw the ball for the puppy. So it turns out dogs are mans best friend.

The Present

Intrigued by the game, which was too high an age limit, the boy was spreading a various circle of facial expressions. A UFO (Unidentified flying object) was flying above his game like a Hydra jet. “Grenade!” the game shouted as booming as a glass shatter. Blood splattered on the screen Why did this happen? His character was dead (This was an 18 game) Curiously he wrapped his flappy fingers round the controller as he had the final killcam, which was a 360-no scope.

Bang! You heard from the game again and then the door opened. It was mum, who was carrying a large box, in a suspicious manor. Without warning she dropped the box on his knee ( which had a special surprise in it). Curiosity got the better of him…
Cautiously opening his box/present, he enthusiastically lifted the lid and… a puppy, who was desperate to find a new home, popped out.

As persistent as a footballer player, the dog was pushing his luck as his knew owner didn’t like him. Forcefully throwing, the dog onto the floor. He unpaused the game and started playing again.

The Present

As soon as the first gunshot fired at the speed of light. The boy, who was playing on his game console(The egg box 1), that is as fattening as a MacDonald’s, heard someone shout ‘Grenade!’ The boy’s feelings were plain for other people to see when his mother into the walked slowly into the room and said, “Hi sweetie sorry I’m late.” She carried a box in her hand and put it on the hollow table. He avoided looking at the rustic looking box.

She went upstairs and said in a calm voice, “Why don’t you open the present I got for you?” She said it with a poker face and he opened the box before suddenly a puppy jumped out.

Curiously concentrating the boy saw that the puppy had only three legs and chucked him on the floor saying, “You’ve got be kidding me.” As he knocked the box of the table onto the floor, the dog thought it was fun then came to his right leg. The boy kicked him for no reason.

He was upside down when he eyed a ball in front of him and went for it… he slammed his head on a cupboard! Eventually he got it and brought the ball to the boy. Once again, the boy kicked it into a box. The dog sprinted to the box so it tipped over. The boy glanced at the box  moving all over the floor. The boy now had a smirk on his face, particularly when the three legged emerged from the box. The dog looked up with big brown eyes holding the ball. It touched the boy’s leg and he picked it up. As he stood up, the boy only had one leg! With crutches in his hands and the ball in his pocket, he said, “Mum we will be outside.” They left the house throwing the ball over and over again. Mum had been very clever.

We both have something missing!

The Present
The boy was playing on his Xbox 360, when his mother came through the door and put down a brown box in his eye line. Curiosity got the better of him, so he opened the box and BOOM out I came. As soon as he saw me he said, “AWWWWWW!”

However he realised that I had only three legs so he threw me on the ground and said, “Aw you’ve got to be kidding me!”

Without feeling any damage, I came back over to his feet and he kicked me onto my back. When I was on my back on the floor I spotted that there was a ball as red as blood underneath the television cabinet. So I regained my composure and ran over to get the ball. Stupidly I ran straight into the television cabinet door. Finally I was able to get the bright ball in between my small jaws and run over to my new owner. I stumbled a little but managed to roll the ball over to him. Determinedly I ran over to the boy so he kicked the ball into the box that I came out of. Once the boy did so I ran over to it and caught inside the box.

After a few seconds I managed to wriggle out of the box and my new owner laughed. I barked because I couldn’t find the ball. My new owner, who threw me on the cyan carpet, was ‘coming out of his shell’.

When I rolled the ball over to him a second time he said “Humph” and with that he picked up the ball plus his crutches. After he did so, he put on a jacket. He stood up, hopped near the arm of the couch and put his arms in his crutches. He took me outside and shouted “Mom, we’ll be outside’’. Then he put on a poker face and went outside with me. The boy got the ball out of his pocket and we started to play fetch in his back yard.

We played the day and night away. So in the end we were ended up best friends and we loved each other.

The Present

A story with a real ‘twist in the tale’.

Can you work it out before all is revealed?
