We had the best time ever at Lasershoot!
It was set up like a deserted castle and we all had laser guns in the shape of old fashioned swords. Max and I were in a team together and we sped off to get away from the girls. Our aim was to make it all the way from the drawbridge to the battlements without being blasted. And we had to shoot the enemy teams and collect pretend gold coins on the way. The girls were on a different team and they were such sissies that they made our mums go with them! It was easy to know where they were because they kept screaming really girly shrieks just because it was dark.
We had an awesome time, blasting at monsters and collecting treasure. But then something really scary happened. We were creeping round the dark tunnels trying to find the last gold coin when we saw one whizzing along the ground ahead of us. Every time we got near to it, it whizzed off again. Then we realised it was being pulled along by a snake. We thought we had it trapped in an old barrel but when we tipped it up we got covered in spiders! Yuck! It was only when the spiders vanished and we heard some growly chuckles that we realised the gargoylz were there! Eli and Bart had sneaked along for the fun! Eli was the snake of course and Bart had burped up the spiders. Eli had found the last gold coin and we were able to get our prize – a slap up tea in the cafe.
As we were on our way there, we suddenly remembered that we were going to play a trick on the girls. But before we could think one up we heard a bloodcurdling shriek coming from a dark passageway and Jessica and Arabella came dashing out yelling that a haunted suit of armour was after them! We knew it must be one of the gargoylz. The girls rushed off into the car park shrieking that they would never go to Lasershoot ever, ever again in their lives. RESULT! When they’d gone, we saw Rufus – as a skeleton – waving one of his bony arms out of the suit of armour.
When we got our tea we made sure that all three gargoylz got plenty of cookies and doughnuts smuggled to them under the table. Anyway Lasershoot was cool!
Bart wants me to tell you his favourite joke about Eli.
Q. What is a snake’s favourite food?
A. Hiss Fingers!
And now Toby wants me to tell you something. Oh yes! The gargoylz are part of the World Book Day book. I don’t think you’d need to be told. Doesn’t everyone know that? Anyway he’s insisting so I’m telling you! And he says I must tell you to look out for the gargoylz next week as they’re going to visit lots of schools all around World Book Day. So if you live in Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire or Sussex you might see a stony paw or tail whizzing out of sight. But remember, keep it a secret!
