Deux des histoires inventées lors de cette après-midi :

« The Witch - group 1 »

"Gertrude Gerard is Chinese. She is 200 years old. She’s tall, strong and ugly. She has a big pointed nose, big blue eyes and a big mouth with four black teeth. She has got long curly green hair. She’s elegant, in a long black dress. She likes to transform girls into monkeys. She uses a potion to do so.

The scene takes place in winter, on a Sunday at 5pm. Gertrude is in her castle in London. She has a boyfriend named Jack. He is young and sexy. He is with her for her money.

When she comes to the kitchen and tastes the pizza, she spits it out because it’s disgusting. Jack is upset.

She then goes into the toilets to make a magic potion. She uses a bat, a mouse, a cat and a dog, taken from her polite fridge. She says « Zoom Badaboum » !

The shop assistants are so frightened that they hide in the toilets. The parents are scared too and follow them."

Rebecca Potatoe is French, but she lives in Asia. She has got a big house in Hong Kong.
She is 25, she is beautiful and fashionable. She is tall and she has got long black hair and red eyes. She is wearing a red top, orange jeans and pink ballerina pumps.
Her husband is Jean-Pierre, he is 99 years-old but he is sexy and very rich. He doesn’t love Rebecca, he is afraid of her ! Rebecca loves him for his money.

It’s 9 a.m. on a Monday in winter, Rebecca is at home. She is getting dressed and she is putting on make-up. She wants a hamburger for her breakfast, but it is not good ; so finally she has a kebab.

Rebecca likes transforming boys into monsters with potions. She makes potions in the microwave : she puts in a snake, a frog, a big fish and a cat.

She goes to a cinema by helicopter. When the helicopter crashes, Jean-Pierre dies, but Rebecca is very happy. There is Twilight on the screen at the cinema, but she thinks it is boring.
She transforms five boys into monsters with her potions, the audience is scared. Happily, Gerard Depardieu arrives, he jumps on the witch and he squashes her. She is dead.
Gerard Depardieu becomes the President !
