Snow Fight

Snow Fight!
My holidays ended up being spectacular!  My family and I were in Ohakune, near the famous township of Taupo.  We were going up the freezing Mountain Ruapehu.  Actually we weren't, we were going to the bottom of the mountain.  Boring right? I know!  I was buckled up in my seatbelt.  The roads were extremely dangerous, first of all there weren't many safety rails on the side of the road, so that was dangerous and second of all the roads were pretty steep.  I didn't even want to look down!  After minutes of awkward silence, we were finally there.  I quickly took my gloves and scarf, then I ran like a wild animal to the snow.  But I slipped and landed headfirst in the snow!"Ouch!" I whimpered.  When I stood up something hit me.  I turned around and then it hit me again, smack in the face!  Before the sneak could strike again, as quick as a flash I made a snowball and threw it at... my brother!  I should have known it was him! "This means war!" I growled to myself.  But before the war could start, dad spoke up. "You do know this is fake snow right?" "Oh yeah! Sure I do, totally! I lied. My brother and I went back to our war. As fast as I possibly could, I made a couple of snowballs, then I fired them at my brother. Yay! I hit the target!  He threw more at me than I did at him!  Before our war got out of hand, mum said it was time to go.  I quicky made another snowball and threw it at my brother as my mum's back was turned.  He gave me an angry look.  I didn't care I just walked to the car.  Dad was driving really slow and in my mind I was thinking "Could dad get a ticket for driving this slow?"  But the road was dangerous so it was for the best.  After what seemed like ages we arrived at our chalet.  I loved the snow and the mountain.  Maybe next time it will actually snow so we might go skiing or snow boarding as well! Now that would be COOL!

Time For Touch

It was nearly time, nearly time to meet my team. I was thrilled to be back at touch because I love touch. I was at Lloyd Elsmore Park waiting for my team, but I couldn't see anyone wearing the same uniform as me. Then I saw someone walking towards me. " Are you in Bears Gold?" she asked me.
" Yes." I answered.
"Come to the cafe so you can meet one of your team mates." She said.
"Hi, I'm Anya." The girl introduced herself.
"I'm Paris." I answered her. Then a man with a pearl white shirt and a silver whistle strolled into the cafe. Inoticed he was looking for Anya and I. The lady told us that he was our co-coach and referee. The man took us to where the rest of the team was practicing. He said sorry for being so late. Anya and I then introduced ourselves. The whole team introduced themselves.
"Hi Paris and Anya, I'm Phil, your coachand this is Chloe, Ruby, Carla, Amitee and Talia. They are your team mates this season. Now lets do some practice." Phil explained. We did some passes and sprints. In 5 minutes we were ready to face the Wiki Workz. The horn went and it was our turn on the hockey turf. I ran onto the field in my place which was wing. Our referee blew the whistle and we were off. We played defence first." Touch!" my team mate yelled. We back pedalled to the referee which is running backwards. " Touch!" another one of my team mates yelled. We back pedalled again. The Wiki Workz ran to the tryline while I was running full speed. She scored a try while I was still running like a speeding train. Then it happened. . .
I tried to stop myself but I couldn't come to a complete stop. I skidded on the hockey turf grazing my knee and making it bleed. When I stopped skidding everyone started asking " Are you alright ? Are you okay?" All the questions with the same answer; "Yes, I'm fine." We played on. Chloe came on as a sub for me. I had a quick drink of water before I went back to play. The horn went for halftime. We went back to our coach so he could have a talk to us about the game. He told us we were doing well for our first game together and that it doesn't matter if we win as long as we have fun. We went back onto the field ready for the Wiki Workz for a second time. Our team kept passing the ball around so we couldn't get touched. Finally! We got a try. This was because we worked together as a team. Our game was nearly over, but not before they scored the last try. When the game was over we all said thank you to the referee and shook hands with the Wiki Workz. We all had a drink of water before my mum/ the manager told us who got player of the day. Phil said that we had lost but I had lots of fun. When we all made huddle my mum told Phil who should get player of the day. Phil agreed with what my mum thought. We did a drum roll while Carla kept saying "Its you Talia, its you." and Talia answered " Its gonna be you Carla" and guess who was right. . .
 Even though it was Carla's first time playing I thought she was really good because she kept reminding us to work together.
