Noah and Amelia
“Woooo,” Amelia cheered victoriously.
“You only won because of that flock of birds in my way,” Noah replied embarrassed. “That’s what they all say,” Amelia said in a condescending tone. “Oh, shut up,” “This is the life,” Amelia mumbled. “Sure is…anyway, I’m off, see you next week,” he said while back-flipping off the handle of the fire-escape. “Ok,” Amelia replied sliding down a water-pole. This is Noah and Amelia and they’re urban explorers.
Smith, Noah, aged 20, born 11:58 2018. Smith, Amelia, aged 20, born 12:01 2019.
These are their NYPD police records if you were wondering. These were archived 7 months ago when they were caught trespassing on private property. Although, now they live in Tokyo… after being caught in Los Angeles, Paris, Beijing and Hong Kong. They are legends in the urban explorer community after becoming the first ever climbers to touch the Statue of Liberty’s torch. So as you can tell, they’re good.
The Next Sunday
“Any narrow ledges tonight, Noah?” Amelia projected while parkouring down into an industrial-sized bin.”Is that an expression or literal?” “Both,” “Well, yes there is,” he replied. “I found a new route to Tokyo Tower”, he continued. “How is it?” Amelia asked “Decent,” he replied. They both leap off the apartment in unison. “Wooooo”, they both shout. This is why it’s worth it, all the danger, prison time and never having a place to call home. All of that is meaningless when you feel the wind pushing against your skin. It’s great, amazi- “STOP RIGHT THERE,” a TMPD officer roared at the confused twins. “RUN” Amelia bellowed while accelerating. You didn’t have to tell him twice. They were both off in a heartbeat. They could hear the engine of the police car start in the distance. This is a police chase, they thought. Noah and Amelia leapt from window sill to window sill, slid down drain pipes and swung from building to building like Tarzan and somehow still haven’t escaped the police. Finally, they arrived at a dead end, the officers followed. “Ha, we’ve got you now,” one said panting. “Well it was bound to happen at some point,” Amelia said and they both leapt into battle. Noah dove in legs first into the chest of one officer and Amelia followed. The officers tried to fight back but there was no point. Noah and Amelia have been in this situation before. “That was easier than usu-” Noah was cut short by a 5cm chunk of metal colliding with his chest. “Noah, Noah are you ok?” Amelia said worriedly. She was just about to cry tears of sadness but different tears started leaking after she was also hit by a bullet. Smith, Noah, aged 21, born 11:58 2018. Smith, Amelia aged 21, born 12:01 2019. These are their death certificates if you were wondering.

This isn’t one of those pink, fluffy fantasy stories, with beautiful animals such as giraffes and zebras galloping around. No. This is a story about a horrible teacher. “Miss, miss, may I go to the toilet, please miss?” asked Richard. The teacher walked over to him, her nostrils flaring, her eyes ablaze. Richard was quietly cowering at this stage. He was nervously drilling holes in his rubber with his pencil. Suddenly the teacher got so angry that she turned into a monstrous beast terrorising the class. The teacher made a deafening noise, caught Richard and locked him in the storeroom.
