Larry Flopper's Mysterious Life.

Extracts from this document...


Larry Flopper's Mysterious Life Mr and Mrs Kurse-huw lives at number 13 Unlucky Street. They'd lived there all their lives with their son Stoppit. They where a very normal family with the daily squabbles over who had set dads alarm clock to six instead of seven, why the cat was in the fridge, Stoppit not wanting to go to school and whether to watch Eastenders or A question of sport on TV. Aside from the normal family was something abnormal, a boy the same age as Stoppit. He was Mrs. Kurse-huw's brother's, daughter's, Aunt's, nephew. His name was Larry and he was not normal. He liked going to school, he never lost anything and didn't mind watching what was on TV but he preferred to read instead! He was a strange looking boy too. He had lost his parents when he was very young in a terrible accident involving a garden hose, a pair of rusty hedge trimmers and a garden gnome. In the mist of this accident happening Larry had supposedly taken a nasty blow to the head by a low flying seagull. Leaving him with a scar on his forehead in the shape of a well-known breakfast cereal logo. ...read more.


Larry answered most politely. Mr Kurse-huw rammed one of the letters in Larry's hand and said. "This letter has been arriving for you every day this week and I've been destroying them but I give up have your letter." Larry took the gold letter opener off his desk and tore through the envelope in one swift move. He looked at the page of writing for a few seconds his eyes scanning back and forth. "Oh thank you but I've already had this letter it was delivered the start of last week, I do hate readers digest they just keep sending you stuff that you don't want, could you dispose of it for me?" Mr Kurse-huw let out a blood-curdling scream and stormed along the paving stone path turning the slabs into not so much crazy pathing, or gravel but more like sand. Larry Flopper woke at one minute to seven, folded back the duvet stood up, replaced the duvet, fluffed his pillow and without it getting a chance to beep hit the stop button on the alarm clock as it turned seven. There was then a knock at the door, Larry opened it and saw no one. ...read more.


He looked over the lid and saw the funny old man before him holding an intricately carved staff. "Your on the wrong train me boy!" exclaimed the old man. Larry didn't know what to say but replied "I'm on the right train for the Academy of Remarkably Special Entrepreneurs" The man gave Larry a startled look. "Your supposed to be coming to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry(c), didn't you get the letter?" Larry stuttered, "I didn't get any letters, apart from a readers digest prize draw." "Sorry what's your name?" replied the old man. "Err...Larry Flopper, Sir" "Oh dear I am terrible sorry to have bothered you like this I was looking for Harry Potter(c), Well...um...why don't you try and just forget this entire thing ever happened, good bye!" and with that, the old man disappeared in another cloud of smoke. Larry didn't know what had happened. Then the door that had been blown off its hinges and was at the other end of the carriage, flew back down the aisle and replaced its self as though at had never moved. Larry looked at the Chinese man sat across from him; he was still asleep, oblivious to any of what had just happened. Larry slumped in his seat and let out a small whine of shock, disbelief, fear and confusion all rolled into one. Mike Cope Word count: 1,572 ...read more.
