Friendship and Unity Tsz Ting Lui ,Tsz Ching Yu ,Sze Ue Lam

Friendship and Unity
Imagine. Create. Share.
Since 2008, the Kids4Kids My Story Creation annual story writing and illustration competition has provided primary students across Hong Kong with a creative platform that enables the budding writers and artists to imagine, create and share their stories.
This story was written and illustrated by kid(s) who participated in the Kids4Kids annual 'My Story Creation competition'. We hope to celebrate all the kids who used their creativity and imagination to create a story by giving them an opportunity to custom print their story, and be able to share and inspire other kids to create their own story.
Proceeds from the sale of this custom print story will help fund the Literacy Development Programmes at Kids4Kids to provide creative learning opportunities to low resourced communities in Hong Kong. By buying a Kids4Kids custom print story, you are not only applauding the future artists & authors of Hong Kong but you are also making a difference in a child’s life!

Cate and Julie are best friends, so they decided to join the 3-legged race in the school sports day together.
“We're going to win!” said Cate. Julie agreed.
“This is the final call for three-legged race,” a teacher announced.
“It's our turn,” said Julie. The girls were nervous.

During the race the girls couldn't work out how to run together and so they finished last.
“Ugh! Why did you run so slowly?” Cate said, blaming Julie “It's all your fault!”
“No, it's not. It's yours. You didn't help me!” Julie said angrily.

As they quarrelled and fought, they forgot that their legs were still tied together. Suddenly Cate tried to push Julie but of course they both fell over and their heads crashed off the hard ground. They each blacked out and started dreaming.

In their dream, they saw a strange man with an eyepatch.
“Who is he and why are you here, loser?” asked Cate. Julie said similar nasty things to Cate.
“You were brought here because you were fighting with each other,” said the man. “To leave, you must complete three challenges.”

“The first challenge is to find the 5 cards hidden in the drawers and place them in the correct place within one minute. If you can do it, you'll be teleported to the next challenge. Otherwise, you'll stay here forever. Ha ha…” said the man laughing evilly.

Cate was smart so she found the letters ‘U' ‘N' and ‘I' quickly, but Julie was struggling. Cate came and helped Julie to look in her drawer. “I've found a ‘T' and a ‘Y',” said Cate excitedly.
“Thanks for finding those cards for me,” said Julie.
Suddenly a portal appeared.

“There are some rocks in the river,” said the man. “Step on them and you can cross the river safely. Then you'll have completed the second challenge.”
“You'll be washed away if you fail. Wah ha ha…” the man added.

Cate rushed across but the rocks were slippery.
“Help!” Cate yelled after she slipped into the river.
Julie immediately ate a magic strawberry with “FRIENDSHIP” on it and she turned into a giant, big enough to grab Cate's leg and pull her out of the river to safety.

“Last but not least, you must eat 30 hamburgers within 30 minutes. This is your final challenge,” the strange man said. “You may leave if you succeed.”
“How can we eat 30 hamburgers in 30 minutes?” cried Cate. “I usually eat just 1 for my lunch.”

After 29 minutes, Julie had eaten 4 hamburgers and Cate just 2 hamburgers. Cate tried to stuff another 28 hamburgers into her mouth, but Julie said “Don't be silly. You'll be very sick! – I don't want that!”
“But we can't get out now,” said Cate. The girls were worried.

“You have demonstrated unity and friendship in the first 2 challenges,” said the man. “You also didn't let each other be sick by eating all the hamburgers. This showed love!”
Suddenly, a door opened behind the man.
“But who are you?” Julie asked.
“The god of unity,” the man smiled.

The two girls opened their eyes and they were in the hospital.
“I am sorry for shouting at you,” apologised Cate. “Please forgive me?”
“Ok,” said Julie. “And I have to say sorry too.”
They became friends again…and next year they used their teamwork skills to win the 3-legged race!
