12:00 on a boat.
Charlie and DJ are good mates and every Friday they like to go night fishing. They usually stay out until midnight but because it is the last day at high school for the year they decided to stay out until half past twelve.
Both of them loved looking at the calm sea especially on a beautiful night like tonight. That's one of the reasons why they love night fishing.
12:30 Still on a boat
It has been half an hour now and Charlie and DJ are starting to get hungry but luckily it was time to head back home. So they rolled up their fishing lines and laid down their fishing rods then started up the engine.
But suddenly they heard a loud voice come out of the radio saying “hurry there is a huge wave coming towards YOU!¨
The boy didn't understand him so the guy said it again but this time the voice wasn't loud it was in a panic, the boys didn't quite understand again until a couple of times later and then DJ (gasped) and charlie didn't say anything but his heart was beating a million more times than the sun could burn bright in the day time. About a minute later of freakishly standing there terrified they both ran over (when I mean run I mean sprint) to the steering wheel both of them grabbed onto it tightly and Charlie revved up the engine to high speed as DJ looked beyond them and yelled we’re both ¨GOING TO DIE!!!!!¨ They both were in a huge panic until the radio came back on saying false alarm boys false alarm! The two boys were quiet for a second as Charlie's heart stopped beating so fast and DJ stopped yelling they were both going to die and before you knew it they were arriving at the wharf. When they were walking back home they didn't even say one word then when they got back inside they went straight to bed and dreamed it was all a bad dream.
My awesome holiday
My holiday was the best. I stayed at my uncle and aunties house. We sat down and had some iced tea. Then my cousin Monique made amazing dazzling Jbutter chicken.
JAfter we ate it up Monique said I should take you guys to the movies. Good idea I said. We also bring some snacks with us. Yummy. We got ready and got on our way.
When we arrived we made our way to the entrance and walked to the movies. We sat down in our seats and waited for the ads to end. JFinally the movie stared. Silence.
The movie ended. JGreat movie said my sister Cindy. We watched lyre lyre Crocodile. Great Movie. We went back home and went to bed.*Yawns*I had a great sleep.
*Dogs barking from other room*Wow such a sunny day. Oh did I mention they have dogs and a cat? Yeah they are so cute. Massy the littlest one is the older ones daughter.
The oldest one is called Bella and their cat is called Missy. I jumped out of bed to get breakfast. I had some Weetbix with yogurt. My sister also woke up and had some breakfast too.J Good morning I said.

Could New Zealand’s voting age drop to 16?
The voting age in New Zealand may drop from 18 to 16. It needs to be voted by parliament.
Jacinda Ardern said she would support for lowering the voting age to 16.
The voting age was last changed in 1974.
