Two versions of the same idea:



Magic:


In the dark moon light I could still see their faces.They came at night and they left at night.
One night there was a party about eight kilometers from our village... When suddenly something went wrong, the house where the party took place suddenly cought fire. Everybody ran out from the house, except 4 little children. Some people went to helh them to get out. That night eight people died trying to help the children.That day fire was everywhere in the house. I was one of that eight people that were trying to help the children. But when we saw what was there we ran back. There was a round circle around them and fire was somehow prevented from toughing them there!

The Fiend:


In the dark moon light I could still see their faces.They came at night and they left at night.
One night there was a party about eight kilometers from our village. When, suddenly, something went wrong, the house where the party took place suddenly caught fire. Everybody ran out from the house, except 4 little children. Some people went to help them to get out. That night eight people died trying to help the children.That day fire was everywhere in the house. I was one of that eight people that were trying to help the children. But when we saw what was there we ran back. There was a round circle around them and fire did not get there. Suddenly children looked at us, but in their eyes there was blood, one child run at us, and touched one of people that were with me. The man started to rot very fast and in about twenty seconds or less he turned to a bunch of rotten bones and some skin burning in the fire. Other three children started to sing and suddenly everyone caught fire, everyone except me!?! Suddenly everyone disappeared and only children and I were in the burning house. Suddenly children started to sing at me. Then I remembered everything and I felt my body changing. And I the father of evil will brake the piece one more time, though I was the father of the children.And I am BACK.....RRRRRGGGGGHHRRRRRR

A gigantic animal was walking on planet called Pluto. It looked like horse with the head of lion and with legs of the bull. The alian was so astonished when he saw that animal. It was winter time on Pluto so the alien was cold. He never had been on Pluto before, he never saw the yellow colored trees, black water, red sky, pink snow of the Pluto. The alian wanted to hunt for that animal, but he was stopped by the Plutonian police. They said him that he needs to pay five 'plutoes' for breaking the law of the Pluto

Once upon a time near my city somebody was building a very big zoo. The owner was a famous explorer; in fact he was just returned from the south Africa and he caught a lot of strange animals and birds full of light colours on their skins.The most beautiful animal was a gigantic tiger with shining eyes and coulored skin.
The first day was a enjoying day, in fact my friends went there and the said that it was a very big place with uncountable cages.

'The Kid'


By Sir Charles Chaplin


TURN THE PAGE: A Salute to Sir Charles ...

Fat Jack's Site.


A Retelling of a fragment of the film:



Charlie Chaplin was born on 16 April 1889 in East lane, Woolworth.

He started as a humble comic in musicals in theatres. All the audience had fun when he was acting on the stage; so he decided to make his way up and become famous. He so went to California and tried with the cinema, he could even run a camera himself. He so started and he makes all the musics, the choreography, the score and the special effects.

One of the most important films he has ever made is “The kid”, that talks about poverty; in fact Charlie Chaplin faced often the many problems of poverty. The film starts when a childhood mother, with her son in her arms, goes out of a charity hospital; she does not know where to go or how she is going to take care of her just born son with no money and no job.

She so decided to leave the baby in a luxurious car that was parked in a street. But two thieves stole the car with the baby inside, which was not noticed by them. After few miles they stopped and had a rest, happy that they got such a nice car. When they returned on the car, they heard the baby crying and left him near some rubbish bins near the city center.

After a bit of time Charlie Chaplin is walking through the same rubbish bins and hears a baby crying. He so takes it and sees a woman with another baby in it, and decides to leave it there; but, when the mother of the other baby sees it, she stops him and orders to take it back. Charlie Chaplin then tries to bring it back where he had found it, but a policeman sees him and Charlie Chaplin has so to keep it. His last chance is to leave the baby in the same pram as before and run away, but the woman sees it and runs after Charlie Chaplin and calls the policeman. He so has to keep it; but on the way home he sees a grid, but he soon changes his mind.

As soon as he gets at home, he cuts some white clothes and uses them as pampers for the baby. He also makes a hole in a chair with underneath a bowl and this is used as a toilet seat.

Five years later, after the kid is grown up and is playing on the streets, but the policeman sends him back at home, where he helps the father After little time the father is ready to work, and carries on his back some pieces of glass; in fact their job is that the son brakes the windows and he repairs them. But this time the policeman understands and makes Charlie Chaplin repair the window without being paid. They so go back to home and eat.

The film shows the mother of the kid five years; but she is not poor any more, but she is a very reach and generous person who receives plenty of flowers every day; but her biggest wish is to have her son back.

She often goes in the streets and does some charity and gives toys to the kids. But this time she gives some toys to a kid, who really is her son, who happily plays with them.

The next morning he gets up of bed and cooks some pancakes while the father is still sleeping. After every thing is ready he angrily wakes the father who made a hole in the middle of his blankets, so that he only needs to put the head in there and is dressed.

After breakfast he goes on the streets and starts playing with his new toys; but another baby steals his toys and they start to fight with everybody watching. After a bit of time Charlie Chaplin goes out of the building and sees the fighting; he so runs there and tries to divide them, but after sees that his “son” is winning and starts giving him some advisement as he was a boxer. But the big brother of the other child comes, and says that if Charlie Chaplin’s son wins he is going to beat Charlie Chaplin.

Unlikely for Charlie Chaplin his kid wins and he now has to fight with the big man, who starts trying to punch him, but Charlie Chaplin always moves and does not get the punches, he now takes Charlie Chaplin for his hair and wants to crash him on the wall; but he is stopped from the mother of the kid who asks him gently to stop. But Charlie Chaplin takes a stone and hits him on the head many times while he tries to reach home.

After the big man is on the floor the real mother of the kid brings him to Charlie Chaplin because the kid is ill. The country- doctor comes in Charlie Chaplin’s house and first puts the thermometer in Charlie Chaplin’s mouth, but after sees the child in the bed and starts to cure him.

Valerio di Caprio 5/99.
