DAILY TEST OF NARATIVE GRADE XI TEXT 1 On the last day of the holiday, Dad said What shall we do today?

Go out in the rowing boat,said Anne. Sail Sprite, said Alan. So they did both things at once. Sprite was a fine ship with two white sails and belonged to Alan.He held her fast by a long piece of string as she sailed behind the rowing boat. Dad rowed and Anne sat in the bows. Mum and Alan sat in the stern. The tide had turned and the water was running out of the river. We shall have to turn soon,said Dad. Or well get stuck in the mud. A sudden flurry of wind rocked the boat and Alan dropped his string. Stop rowing, he shouted, Ive lost sprite! Dad said sternly,Sit down! Youll have us all in the river! Alan tried to reach the string and nearly fell overboard. Ill get it, said Anne. Ill swim after it. Youll do no such a thing! cried Mum. But she was too late. Anne had scrambled out of the boat. The river was too full of weeds for Anne to swim. Help! she called in panic. Dad had to rescue Anne instead of Sprite. Sprite sailed into the reeds along the bank but a cow come down for a drink and pushed her out into the current again. Sprite came to the mouth of the river where some sailing boats were having a race. She sailed along with them but when they turned back up the river, Sprite went on out into the bay. The sea was rolling up the long sandy beach. A wave swept Sprite on to the shore so that she was almost shipwrecked on the rocks. She was saved just in time by some children who were fishing in the rock pools. Look what Ive found! one cried, launching Sprite in a pool. But later, when it was time to go home and the children were called by their mother, they forgot Sprite and she was left behind on the beach. Now the beach was deserted. The tide came up high and carried Sprite out ot sea. She rose and fell on the waves and the moon shone white on her white sails. There were fishing boats in the bay and Sprite was caught in a net with the fish. Early next morning the boat went back to harbor with her catch and the fish were sorted out on the deck ready to be sold. Somebodys lost a sailing boat! said one of the fishermen holding up Sprite. Mum and Dad, Anne and Alan had come down to the harbor for last look at the sea before they started for home. They watched the fishermen unload their catch. Then Alan shouted, Look at that fisherman, hes got Sprite! The fisherman climbed up on to the quay and Dad asked him about Sprite. We caught her in the net with the fish, said the fisherman.
