My resolution

Carly turned to Frank, “What shall we do?” she nervously asked him. Frank knew that now it was his chance to tell Carly that he wasn’t a human like she was, but an alien from planet Xon4. This meant that he had magic powers, he pushed the green diamond on his shoulder and suddenly he was gone, although he was not really gone, he had turned on his invisibility super power. Carly hid behind the tallest tree she could find, Frank crept towards the monster who was sniffing the ground. The monster was a Sniffalopodus, he was able to smell from 80 miles away because his nose was the size of a rugby ball, and shaped like one too! Frank quickly darted in and snatched the key from his neck. The frightening monster could smell him but not see him. The monster threw his arms around but Frank who was as fast as a cheetah had already run to Carly. Now they hurried to the enchanted garden. Carly knew that if they could get to the garden before sunrise they could use the petals from the magic rose bush to get rid of the monster.
