Nobody in Preston could remember when the water tower was built or who built it, but there it stood on Shooters Hill. Circling around the tower, the corrodered barbed wire attempted to keep out trespassers. In the heart of the barbed wire stood the colossal beast beaming down at the town of Preston.
One thing for sure, the tower was not a friend of the towns people of Preston.
Early on that summer’s morning, Bubba and Spike met up at the local shop to decide what they were going to do. “I’m boiling in the sun,” groaned Spike. Then Bubba replied “I’m roasting too Spikey,”
“Let’s go down to the Water Tower,” shouted Spike as he raced up the hill.
“Are you sure we should be doing this?” gasped Bubba as he waddled along behind.
Making their way into the Water Tower, Spike dashed up the ladder having no thought to go back down. Gasping for air, Bubba slowly made his way to the Tower.
“Spikey! Wait up for me” squealed Bubba as he started to get scared. Step by step Bubba made his way up the ladder.
Getting undressed, Bubba slowly made his way down to the dark abyss but al that was to be found at the bottom was that Spike was not there. Climbing down the ladder Bubba shivered in horror, it looked like there was no end to this dark abyss. “Spikey” Bubba mumbled. Nothing but the echoing howl of the deathly silence…
Freaking out, Bubba got more and more scared as seconds went by. Not knowing what to do, Bubba made his way back towards the tantalising light above him then with a breath of relief he finally made his way up to the top.
“No” Bubba cried out “My clothes are all gone! My Mum’s going to kill me!” Not knowing what to do, Bubba burst out in tears.
“Don’t worry, mate. I can go and get them for you.” shouted Spike as he jumped out of the shadows.
“Really? Can you do that for me?”
“Yes!” replied Spike.
Shouting down the ladder Spike shouted, “Be back in a minute Bubba” but the rest flushed away in the wind.
Getting back in the water tower, Bubba slowly made his way down the ladder step by step.
Meanwhile Spike raced back to Bubba’s house through the town.
Staring up at the water tower, the towns people glared at the glorious beast casting a shadow over the valley.
Meanwhile Bubba decide to go and sit under a tree but the sun kept on finding him and blazing straight threw the skin.
Finally, Spike eventually reached Bubba’s house. Dashing from draw to daw getting the things he needed for Bubba, he then dashed out of the window to go back to Bubba.
Glancing at the water tower still the towns people stared up at the colossal statue, people looked out of windows and stopped working to look, just to see.Shocked and in desperation to see this strange thing the towns peoples mouth dropped to the floor.
When Spike returned to Bubba he saw something completely different to what he had seen before, “Bubba are you ok?” whispered Spike.
“I’m more than ok Spike.” glanced Bubba.
“Are you sure Bubba?” demanded Spike. Bubba’s eyes looked strange and he had a weird simble on his hand. Spike felt a sudden urge that Bubba was somehow different.
Deep in the tank, the water eddied and swirled………………………………
