The Golden Ticket

Hey! Did you know that I went to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory? How you ask? Well, Willy Wonka kept six golden tickets packed along with his chocolates.

I- Ileana

L- Lilly

L- Laurence

Weird William fell into the chocolate waterfall for his weird behaviour.

Irritating Ileana turned into an Inca berry in the invention room while she was irritating the team.

Lardess Lilly was excited about the lollypops and was thrown into the giant garbage bin by the Lollies (robots who make the lollypops).

Lavish Laurence went into the radio in the radiation room as he was disturbing with his lavishness.

Now only two of us were left – Yousaf and I. Willy Wonka gave us the option to choose between a treasure box and quitting and continuing the journey with him.

Yousaf badly needed money, more than anything else, to take care of his family as his family business was in loss. So, he took the treasure box and quit gleefully. 

I was the only one left. Seriously, I won! I could not believe this. Willy Wonka gave me an enormous ………….. “Wake up dear it’s 6’o clock already, get ready for online classes”.
