The last story has just come out on the blog! It's the end!

I'd like to say a TITANIC thank you to everyone who has donated! Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey and Sussex and I really appreciate it! Speaking of Air Ambulance, they asked me to say thank you to everyone who has donated as well – so thank you!

We've done so much together – we've been on the radio, we've been in The Isle Of Thanet News – so much!

I'm also amazed how much we've raised together! £629 pounds!

Well, that's it! Who knows, I might do another writeathon someday! :) Bye! :)

John Sunda is a private detective with an unusual partner – an Akita dog called Growl! The justice-bringing team’s business is called Sunda & Hound Detective Service. They specialise in luxury car thefts.

They have an office a few floors above a shop, with a frosted glass door. Growl stands guard at the office entrance, and the name Sunda and Hound Detective Service shines on a silver plaque attached to the door. A large desk can be found in the middle of the office. A matte black swivel chair is in front of the desk and, on the wall at the back of the office, lockers are labelled with different cases. There is a desk tidy at the back of the desk, with Sunda’s case notes in it. A computer is also on the desk next to a dark blue phone.

The phone trills gently. John picks it up. “Hello, this is Sunda & Hound Detective Service. Who is calling?” he asks.

“This is Peter at Meldey Car Showroom. There’s been a car theft,” replies the caller.

“What make is the car, Peter?” questions John.

“The new black Tesla S is the car in question,” answers Peter.

“What is the number plate?” John says clearly.

“TG3 RTU,” Peter says worriedly. John writes all of this down in his notebook. “OK, thank you, Peter. I’ll look for your missing Tesla,” he says. “How much will it cost?” asks Peter. “£200 a day,” replies John, “I’ll tell you if I find it. Goodbye”. John sets out with his dog to a busy road he knows is a popular getaway route for car thieves.

When they arrive, the road is bustling. John looks at every car, but doesn’t see any Tesla S cars. They keep watching all day, but don’t see anything. John decides to go back to the car park. Then he gets his break. He is about to get into his armoured chase car when he sees a black Tesla S pulling into a space by the toilets. The number plate is TG3 RTU! A man is driving the car and looks uneasy! “Stop right there!” roars John. The wheels on the stolen car spin and it screeches away! John quickly puts Growl in his armoured chase car and gets in. They zoom away with their siren on.

The Tesla turns off the road and into the park! John follows him. People dive out of the way and they weave around trees and even knock down the fence of the play area!

The criminal speeds out of the park and seems to be heading for the car showroom! They soon arrive, and the car thief stops the Tesla. He climbs out and climbs up a builder’s ladder – the roof is being repaired from very bad weather. Two other criminals climb out of the Tesla. They are highly wanted criminals: Thuggo and Sparkzy. Growl barks fiercely at them and bites Thuggo. “Get off, you mutt!” Thuggo snarls. “Put your hands in the air, Cameron Sylvania and Juliet Arnott,” commands John. Cameron Sylvania is Thuggo’s real name, and Juliet Arnott is Sparkzy’s real name. “Never!” the two criminals shriek! John runs toward them, holding two pairs of handcuffs. The criminals pull daggers from their pockets and start throwing them at John. He runs in a zigzag pattern, avoiding every single one. He high-kicks Thuggo. The criminal goes down, unconscious. John handcuffs him and does the same to Sparkzy before she can escape.

“Now for you, Mr car thief,” says John. The thief has knocked the ladder down from the roof, but the builders lift it back up for John and hold it steady. Growl has to stay at the bottom. “Are you ready for my course?” the thief laughs evilly and runs under an air vent pipe. John follows him under the pipe and over a metal fence for the rooftop fire exit. Two more criminals burst out of the fire exit and take on John, making him realise that he has walked into a giant set-up without realising it! He high-kicks both criminals and handcuffs them. Before the thief can get any further, John pins him down by the scruff of his neck and handcuffs his hands in front of him. Suddenly, the thief double-kicks John from the ground, knocking him out cold.

He waits for Thuggo and Sparkzy to turn up. “It was easy to pick these handcuffs then lock up the dog,” Thuggo grins as he picks the lock on the thief’s handcuffs. Once uncuffed, the thief gets out an envelope of cash and hands it to Thuggo. “Night, night,” the thief says as he high-kicks Thuggo and Sparkzy into unconsciousness and picks up the cash!

When John wakes up, he has been moved to the showroom. “You got back our Tesla and lost the criminals, but you still got back the Tesla, so here’s the cash,” Peter says as he hands John £200. “I’ll get them next time!” says John.

The children at Beetle’s Nature School are planting saplings around the forest school’s land. “OK, a bit further forward, that’s good,” directs Becky as Alex wheels the wheelbarrow, holding the birch sapling, nearer the hole next to the mud kitchen’s log boundary. “OK,” Becky says, “stop”. Alex puts down the wheelbarrow and helps Becky, Tamir and Hattie lift the tree into the hole. Alex wheels away the wheelbarrow while Flynn, Cam and Tai all put in some soil. Leo walks on it to ‘heel it in’ and the process continues until the hole is filled.

The tree planting continues until the beginnings of a forest are forming. Silver Birch trees stand rigid and tall all around the mud kitchen. Alnus trees enclose two wooden shelters and Firs surround the ponds. “You’ve done a lot, Nature School. Well done!” says Rick. All of the children run off and play.

At the next session, everyone arrives to find that the saplings have grown into a mature forest! Animal and insect life is thriving, just like a mature forest, too! Bugs scuttle along the uneven ground and birds sing from their treetop nests. Giant tree roots stick out of the ground and the pond has become a clearing full of fish and water plants. “Who has the magic wand?” asks Alex.

“Not me,” replies Leo.

No one has a magic wand. Something has happened here. We need to investigate,” Becky says as she studies some spider silk tangled with carrots. “Spider silk and carrots. That’s not right,” notes Hattie, “look there. Whoever brought the spider and its web here likes carrots”. “That makes sense,” says Alex, “there are more carrots leading over there. Come on!” Alex runs along the trail of carrots. Everyone follows him.

The trail ends at a rabbit warren. A rabbit pops out with a carrot in its mouth. It runs to the nearest carrot, puts the one in its mouth down and eats the carrot. “Well, that’s nothing strange,” sighs Alex. Then Cam spots glitter on the ground. “Look! There’s glitter on the ground!” he points out. Everyone gathers around the glitter. They see more glitter flutter to the ground. It is falling off something. Cam goes down to the shelters at the bottom of the forest school, where none of the leaders are. Everyone follows him. They watch the trees and the shelters. The faces that the children have painted onto the beams of the shelters are holding out against the elements, and the old campfire circle still sits in between the two shelters, its stones mucky and half-buried by new bark chippings on the ground.

As the children sit quietly, waiting, a sudden glimpse of a shimmering creature dashes through the trees and disappears. “We have a mystery creature,” whispers Becky. “Yeah,” agrees Cam. The creature pushes out of the greenery and zaps some saplings into fully grown trees with birds nesting in them. Hattie spots a glowing horn on the creature’s head. “I just saw a single horn,” gasps Hattie. “There’s a unicorn making the saplings a mature forest!” grins Becky. Everyone bursts into excitement! “A unicorn!” “It’s real!” “Woohoo!”

Everyone celebrates by making a den, and the unicorn comes out of the bushes and celebrates with them! It shoots fireworks from its horn and gracefully trots into a shelter. “It’s wonderful,” whispers Becky. “Yeah,” agrees Cam. They watch the unicorn as it flies away in a puff of sparkling gold glitter.
