Ada looked up at the grey sky and wished it would rain something fun, like marshmallows instead of cold wet rain drops. Suddenly, she felt a soft plop on her forehead. She looked up, she couldn’t believe her eyes! It was raining marshmallows. One at a time, marshmallows fell on the ground. The marshmallows were shiny.
Ada was a little curious at the moment. She bent down and took one and showed her mum. She told her there were more outside.
She told everyone that it rained marshmallows. But Ada had an uncle called Joe who was not nice. Although, he heard the news he wanted to investigate to prove that it didn’t happen and then make fun of Ada and her mother. Soon, he heard that Ada was rich because of the rainy marshmallows. He was angry. He came up with a plan to kill Ada.
Unfortunately, when he got to Ada, as he was about to strike her with a heavy blow, a marshmallow dropped on him and he fell down flat, sleeping and snoring loudly. The next thing, he found himself in the police station where he was locked up in jail. He cried bitterly and promised not to be wicked again.
Ada and her mother lived happily ever after.
