-Excerpt-

 

The robber took out his gun and fired, but Hopman jumped faster up to behind the man. In a fast kick, he threw the man on the ground. With another kick, he pushed away from the gun from his hands. The sirens became closer.

“Soon your career will be done, robber!”

In the theatre, a little boy was smiling. The movie ended. All the people went out.

“OMG! I wish I could be that lazy boy,” exclaimed Louis. “Nobody would suspect I am in fact a powerful superhero!”

“He was not a lazy student anymore when a criminal showed up!” said Jack, his best friend.

“Here I come to save the world!” cried Louis.

On the way back, both boys were very excited.

“Imagine, nobody knew about the Hopman,” said Louis.

“Yeah, that was awesome,” replied Jack.

“I’d like to be one too. During the day at school, I would be lazy but opening my ears to any poor victim or any danger and then, hop; I would fly to the rescue!”

“And I could be your assistant, helping you to save the world! And if ever you are in danger or too many bad guys to fight at the same time, I’ll fight crime too!”

Louis was smiling. He made a high five with Jack.

“I am going to convince my mom to watch that movie,” added Louis.

“You think she’ll go to watch it?”

“I don’t know… she told me she doesn’t like this kind of movies; she prefers a good love story.”

“Ah, my mom is the same,” commented Jack.
