Hi, I'm Sprite, I was invented in West Germany in 1959. You can call me lemonade. I am getting bought at the 4 Square in Masterton, New Zealand. I felt a fizz as my blue bottle cap got opened. I then feel a person's lips cup around the top of my bottle, I felt empty minutes after, I am then rolling down into a gutter and getting blown around as cars drive past!


When it got dark it got windy and I started flying really flying until I got stuck in another gutter. I was there for a few days before it rained then I was travelling in the stinky sewers of Masterton. After a couple days I was getting tipped into the Ocean. I could see fish of all sizes swimming past me then I saw a gigantic mouth coming for me I was on the tongue of a whale a real whale!


It was very odd being in a whale. I saw lots of my old friends in there they all said “hi” and then there was a rumble and boom I flew out of the whale and back in again but I wasn't exactly in I was stuck. I then felt the whale shake and groan then hit the sand. I was sad the whale had died. I was devastated it was me and my friends that killed the whale I heard a plastic bag say “We killed something were murderers!” I heard voices then there was light was i dead I felt hands grabbing me then I was in a smelly rubbish bin full of plastic and wrappers! My friends were getting piled on top of me until it was dark.


I was in the rubbish bin for a week at least then I was on a truck to the dump well that's where I thought I was going to end up. Instead I ended up having a hole in me with this chocolate coloured substance inside me and little green bits sticking out of me. I had a good life I got watered every day and it was great I had a great life outside of the gutter, the ocean, the whale and the rubbish bin.
