Jake gazed out of his snakeskin window as the mysterious airship drew closer. He could hear the deafening rumble of the airship’s five tone engine. He could see the wind crashing against its sides. Suddenly, he realised that the airship wasn’t slowing down! Actually, it was speeding up! “Run!” screamed his mechanical fox.

Quietly, Miranda Bug shut the door to her dormitory at Professor Cornfluffels magical school for young girls. “I am leaving.” hushed Miranda under her breath. Miranda crept down the never ending staircase towards the exit.Outside it was snowing heavily. Luckily she had put her coat on. Not wanting to get caught she screamed across the playground towards the front gates of the school.
Outside, she hid under a snowed on table. She reached into her coat pocket and lifted out the note her father (Jake Bug) had sent her two weeks ago.
