Here is my contribution:
Her family has gone out so now was her last chance to count
Dashing up to her bedroom she shut the door anticipation mounting
Tipping the pink piggy bank upside down she struggled with the black stopper
Finally it came loose; she shook the coins out on to her bed, silver and copper
It’s taken several months for her to attain this goal, it wasn’t achieved lightly
Yelping with delight, she counts again and again, pounds, shillings and a few pennies
Would seven prove to be too much to stop those horrible school bullies?
Word count: 107 – 109 with title
