Contract Creative Writing

I could not believe my eyes, I was walking by the Wanganui River I saw one big green and black Taniwha. “Woah that’s freaking me out, what should I do?” I whispered to myself. The Taniwha poked his head out from the water, he had big, shiney, long white teeth. He glared at me and then went back under the water and swam towards me. I was feeling very scared. It felt like my life was going to end. I started to run away from the river, his head popped up again. I stood frozen because I was in shock. He roared, he was angry because I woke him up from his sleep. I told him that I was sorry for waking him and that I was only coming to get some fish to feed my whanau. He said “Ok then, if you give me a good back scratch, I will give you plenty of fish to feed your whanau for a long time.” I said “Yes I will.” He then swam right up to the river bank so that I could jump on his scaly back and used a sharp stick to scratch his back. When I finished he gave me lots of yummy fish and eels.
