Today’s things are: unicorn, fairy, devil
It was the monthly Show and Tell this week and Tim was excited.
‘I’m going to bring my Dad’s Unicorn!’ he boasted.
‘Unicorns don’t exist,’ six year old Martha said.
‘They do too!! And my Dad’s got one! He rides it a lot!’
Mrs Fairweather called Tim over and said quietly,
‘You’ve got the devil in you today Tim. You’ll say you have fairy friends next.’
Eyes wide, Tim said ‘Fairies live at the bottom of our garden Miss, but they’re shy and afraid of us. My Dad’s unicorn is great though. You’ll see tomorrow!’
Mrs Fairweather sighed.
Tim had a vivid imagination, and she didn’t want to quash it.
Next day, Tim was excitedly waiting his turn. Some of his classmates sneered, especially Simon, the class bully. But he’d show them all. His Dad had a unicorn and he was going to prove it!
‘And now Tim. What have you brought today?’ Mrs Fairweather asked.
‘I’ll go and get it!’ he beamed.
A few minutes later, he re-entered the classroom riding his father’s ‘Unicorn’.
