The suitcase

One day there lived an old man (52 years old) called Eric, who lived with his daughter Lily who was 15 years old. Their second name was Adams and they were known as the poorest people in Manchester. They lived in an old wooden barn just down from the groceries shop on St Stevens Lane. They were a loving family. They were only two people so they always got on. Their saying was, "We don't need to be rich to be happy!"

One day Lily's dad Eric was having a bad day. He didn't feel well but he carried on with his morning. Until he was having really bad heart pains. He told Lily that he was fine and not to worry about it, it was only heartburn. Lily was worried but went off to sleep. When Lily woke she felt happy and went to see her dad. When she went downstairs her dad was laid on the front room floor.

She tried to wake him but there was no response so she called the ambulance straight away and they said they would be 10 mins. She was quite calm and said, "OK, hurry up." She put the phone down and tried to get a response but there was nothing. Then the ambulance people arrived and tried and said, "We will have to take him to hospital."

Lily said "Ok, I will come." They said, "Come up later with some off his stuff."

So Lily went up in the loft to find his suitcase to find millions of pounds. She was amazed. She had a look and I found a note which said: "This is for Lily. Use it for college so you can get your dream job." So she did and her father sadly didn't live.
