A long time ago, there was a magic lion who had ‘fire’ powers but no one knew about these magical powers. He lived under a tree, but he was never lonely. He had two friends - one of them was a tiger with ‘water’ powers and the other one was a bull who had ‘earth’ powers. The lion was called Max, the tiger was called Roxie and the bull was called Bullet.
One day they had a sleepover at the tiger’s house. It was...PIZZA DAY!!!!! That night, they heard THUMP! THUMP! THUMP. It was coming from outside the cave.
“What is that?” asked Bullet.
“I don’t know,” said Roxie.
“I am scared,” said Max.
They decided to go outside to check it out. They saw a bright light - it was dazzling in the night sky!! It was a DANCE PARTY! There were three people there. But Max, Roxie and Bullet were frightened as they had never seen people before. The boys were called Fionnán and Cathán and there was a girl called Loinnir.
Then they made friends. Fionnán hopped on Max as Loinnir hopped on Roxie. Not to be left out, Cathán jumped on Bullet.
Then they all saw a big ROBOT, who growled, “I will take over the world.”
“Not on our watch!” replied Cathán, Loinnir and Fionnán.
“YOU WILL NEVER STOP ME,” the robot said. “All you have is a little lion, tiny tiger and a boring bull.”
“Max, use you fire tornado,” said Fionnán.
“Use your tsunami power, Roxie,” said Loinnir.
Finally, Cathán screamed to Bullet, “Use your boulder cannon!”
The robot could not stand another second. He was defeated by the three superpowers and Loinnir, Fionnán and Cathán. He fell to the ground.
“Okay, you win,” whispered the robot.
Everyone cheered, “YAYAYAYAAAAAYAY!”
