We watched as the hard coated corn fell into the machine, we waited.The smell of melted butter wafted through the air then the popcorn started blasting this way and that, like a ping pong ball getting hit back and forth. Mrs Reynolds tried to control the monster. It fired back with hot balls of fury.

Mrs Reynolds passed a bowl full of the hot clouds.We each took a tiny bit and stared at it like it was the last food on earth,then in a split second it was gone.
