Literacy and Language Group – Sister for Sale
It all started on my sixth birthday. Mum baked me a yummy chocolate cake, with thick toffee icing and six blue candles on top. I made my usual wish (to be the first schoolboy to land on Mars) then took an almighty breath and blew them out. All expect one. I had another go. Still no luck. “Try again, Tom,” Molly said, and this time she leaned over and blew too. The candle went out.
