This is how the story of Steve begins (by 44ddo, grade 6).
One day Steve woke up. He looked at the mountains of garbage that stood in front of his house. When he moved here, ten years ago, there were still green trees and grass, but now it was different. The air was polluted by the black smoke that rose from the factories into the sky. It wasn’t anymore a nice place to live, thought Steve. The garbage made Steve turn red, but he never knew why.
Steve walked onto the hill of trash and suddenly he tripped. Accidentally, he swallowed a piece of plastic that lay on the ground. Unexpectedly, he felt something running through his body. It might be electricity, he thought, and saw that he turned green. Steve didn’t feel the piece of plastic that he had swallowed, but he felt something in his mouth.
He opened his mouth and soil fell out of it. He was confused, so Steve walked back to his house. He realized that, as he came closer to his house, the lamp started to light up.
After some time he sat on his chair coming up with an idea. He wanted to eat the mountains of trash in front of the house and indeed, after a year he was done. He went to the electric station and put all the electricity from his body into the wire . There was enough electricity for many years. Now he also knew why he used to turn red, it was his body, trying to make him realize his ability, and luckily he did, because he recycled everything in Germany and was a hero for ever.
