I awoke early because today was my birthday and I’d asked my parents for a tent as I had a thing for camping out.
Mum was already up in the kitchen fixing the breakfast.
She told me to look out into the backyard.
I stood in wonder as out in the yard was my new tent. It wasn’t as I imagined, it was a bright yellow. I ran out and immediately crawled inside. It smelt new, it looked beautiful and, in my mind, the first adventure was about to take place.
I looked out to see the pirates approaching.
