The Suitcase

A writing competition for students

It was a dark gloomy day when Timothy was strolling back home after a long day at school. As he came across a suitcase, he looked to see if anyone was looking. Nobody was so he looked to see if there was a name tag on it. There wasn't.

He opened the suitcase very quietly so no one would see or hear him. Inside was ... millions of dollars in the bag. Timothy was scared but excited because he wasn't sure if he could keep it. So he sprinted home with the suitcase trailing behind him.

As he walked in his mum shouted, "Where have you been all afternoon?"

"I was just taking a long walk around the block," he replied.

"OK, tea is ready once you have got into your PJs and washed your hands," she told him as he tip-toed up the stairs with the suitcase.

"Ok mum I'll be down in a minute."

When he got upstairs he ran into the bathroom and he opened the suitcase and counted all the money. There was $100,000,000,000.

Timothy wanted to spend it, so the next day he went to school with $100,000 so after school he could go straight to the Mall. He spent all the money on the latest video games. He went home and played all the video games. There was breaking news on all electrical items. Someone had stolen $100,000,000,000.

Timothy's friend Joe, who knew about the money, ran home and said he was going to phone the police and he didn't want anything to do with it. Soon the police turned up at the front door and they rang the doorbell. Timothy ran down the stairs and answered the doorbell. The police asked him lots of questions but he didn't get away with it and went to jail.
