If I didn't touch the school grounds, if I stayed home, if I wasn't stupid then I wouldn’t have this superpower. I was scared ,worried about my friends and furious about what had just happened.  I am sitting near a door, when a teacher looks at me and closes the door. I am lonely in the ruined corridor of my school  Silently I put my hat on as I walk out the door. I take my hands out of my pockets; scrunch my hands and my face; I was so mad. I put my hands together and run.

Somalia

One day I was just doing the same thing as yesterday just driving my  ship and drinking coffee yum. Suddenly I hear a bang something hits  the ship. Then I  hear yelling “Look out the back window.” I say “oh no pirates are coming  now.” I just stand there because there is nothing to do. They go into the kitchen. They come into where I am.  

The captain of the pirates comes up to me and says “Do you know who I am? I am the new captian. Give me the keys, THE KEYS !” He put the key in and turns it.But he does not know that it makes the robot go on. Then the pirates opened a shipping container but there is nothing in them.

Then  the robot sneakily climbs right out of the container and goes behind the pirates back. One spits on one pirate and the robot scares and trips the pirates over.

“Boo” another robot scares a pirate.  Than one robot goes into the bit where the captain drives the boat. The robot grabs 2 pirates and throw them out the door. Then he taps the pirates leader on the back and makes him look out the window. All his people are are on the ground.  Then a robot takes the  hat and key and gives in back to the real captian.
