Moving and singing to the song, the samoan group and I were practicing in our school breeze, on Monday the 15th of April 2013. We had 'Fiafia' practice today because our performing day is on Thursday. And on Thursday it is going to be the last day of term 1, for Pt England School.

The first thing we did was practice our moves so that when it is our turn to go on stage then we don't mess up. It was important to us that we don't mess up because if we do it will turn into a big disaster. And what I mean by disaster I mean if even 1 person messes up the whole dance then we all mess up.

The following thing we did was practice the song because most of us don't even know the song. When we dance some of us just dance but we don't open up our mouth's and sing. Some of us do sing but we don't dance we just stand their and do nothing. So that's why we practiced singing.

After a while we stood up and danced and this time every one was great. Us girls looked at our hands and sang the song. The boys did their part of the performance and they were also wonderful. Mrs Tele'a, Jenny and Timmy, our dance teachers, said that we were all beautiful dancers.

At the end of the dance and performance we all sat down proud and at the same time exhausted because we had to do it every single time we got it wrong or did a mistake. I was so happy for our group because we have had been practicing for 5 weeks and we have tried our best.

The Dark Rise

Walking home from the movies I see a narrow short-cut/path. This path looked very terrifying. My friends, Jorja, Te-Rina, Caroline, Vanessa, including myself,  had just finished  watching Paranormal 4. It was a pretty scary movie.

We  stepped on the path and we thought to ourself, "this isn't bad after all ". As we walked I felt very funny. It didn't really feel like a normal short-cut. It felt like a cemetery. And do you know what lives in a cemetery......dead people.

"Did you guys hear that," I say to my friends. "What?" They reply. " I think we standing on some-one's body," I say in a terrified voice. "Don't be silly. Were walking on a path not a dead person," Jorja says to me. " I was sure that we were standing on a person.

I could hear a crackle kind of thing when ever we walked. When ever I told my friends what I could hear they never trust me. As we were heading toward the ending of the path a gate shut before we could even take another step. I knew at that very moment that this was what I thought it was.

"What did I tell you... this is a grave," I say to my friends. "We are so sorry for doubting you," Vanessa says in a frightened voice.
Just like that all their pieces of their body came out. First the arms then the legs, and then......the head. It was the scariest thing that had ever to me.

We tried looking for a way out but all gates were closed. I thought to myself, 'why did I have to come late at night '. It was almost sun rise and I still haven't got home. My friends and I were surrounded by old moving bones that rose from the dead in the middle of the night. I was 95% close to sleeping on a grave yard. As I start to close my eyes, I start to the sun coming out of the dark shadows. I opened my eyes like as if my eyes looked like big fishy bulgy eyes, and told Jorja to whisper to every one to keep their eyes opened because the sun was coming up.

At that very moment, when the sun rose, the moving bones slowly collapsed into their normal dead selves.
"Finally we can go home. We should never ever come back through this short cut ever again," I say.     " We should always go the long way," My friends say as we start to walk home.
