Cricket - Energy \ Beans

Crack! I hit the ball with all of my power, It roles to the boundary line. I  block a ball that seems to come down to me at 100KM per hour. My bat hits it with a crack, I look at the new chery on my bat.
I can just taste the victory salivating  on my tongue.  I get ready to face the 6th ball of the over, I get ready to crack the ball in half. I hit  the ball like a pro, it travels to the long boundary A fielder chasing after it, I ran 2 runs before it hits the boundary.  The 13 overs are up I head off for drinks break.

I  strode back onto the pitch ready to start the 14th over.  
I block the first ball. It rolls straight back to the bowler. He walks back to his marker for his run up. He runs in at full speed, I hit it to a fielder  He thinks it might be his chance to get me out the, good thing is that he dropped it.  
“Last over” the umpire shouts out. I get ready to bash the ball, I hit it, oh no it’s going to hit my other  batsman's foot I yell out “move out of the way” he quickly steps to the side and it speeds to the boundary. I have reached my thirty runs, I have to retire.
The rest of my team-mates make a cricket bat guard of honour for me to walk through. I hold my head high. My team congratulates me and gives me high fives.

Millau Viaduct

                Millau viaduct

Millau Viaduct is the most amazing bridge in the world. The Millau Viaduct is located in southern France. It was designed by a French bridge engineer Michel Virlogeux. He worked closely with British architect Norman Foster.

The bridge was 245 metres long and 2.5 KM. They built the bridge on a 3 percent slope to make the drivers feel more comfortable. At the highest point of the bridge is 343 that is 23 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower.

The bridge opened on the 14 December 2004. I the first year it carried 4,430,000 vehicles. Many more than it had been estimated. The bridge is guaranteed to remain in good condition for 120 years.

My favourite part of the bridge would be when you look down when you are at the middle.

The cricket ball

The cricket ball By Joshua Heibner

I’ve always been lucky

For Christmas 2013

When Santa gave me my

first cricket test ball.

It was so shiny and clean

that it would shine at
night and it had not been
dropped since I opened it that

It is white with a light green
seme and it has gray, black
and silver words.

Each day I polish it
to keep it gleaming clean
I hope one day it will be
used to hit a 6.
