A hundred years ago, there was a mighty monster named “Hookful” who tried to destroy Hong Kong. The Hero “Hopeful” from Planet 2257 came to save Hongkongers. He sealed the monster into Victoria Harbour.
Hong Kong then enjoyed two hundred years of peace, until today...
“Bang!” a tremendous noise broke the silence of the Harbour. People were frightened and wanted to escape from the disaster. “What happened?” they screamed. The monster came from the sea and used his hooky hands to destroy the city. He froze the BOC Building and crashed Star Ferry like bricks.
“Bang! Bang!” the policemen shot at the monster but it didn’t get hurt.
It was getting stronger. It even stepped on the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. “Who can help us?” The people shouted hopelessly. “I can help them,” thought Markus.
Markus was a boy who passed by and saw what happened. He looked like a ten-year-old boy but he was actually more than two hundred years old. He pretended to be a normal student for most of the time, but he had a secret identity - the superhero Hopeful.
He took out a yellow stick and shouted loudly, “Transform!” Markus grew taller and bigger. He transformed into Hero Hopeful! He was now as giant as the monster. “I will defeat you!” shouted Hopeful.
Hookful moved his hooky hands and tried to hit Hopeful. Yet Hopeful jumped backward and avoided his attack. ‘Splash!’ the water splashed. Hookful was very angry and it shot some toxic at Hopeful. Hopeful felt dizzy as he was poisoned!
Hookful roared. He grabbed Hopeful’s neck. Hopeful was almost suffocated! He felt painful and dropped into the deep sea. “Yeah! I am the winner and the King of the new Hong Kong!” Hookful created a tornado to celebrate his victory. The people were shocked when they saw Hopeful was defeated.
‘Oh no! Our hero has lost! Let’s encourage him!’
‘Hero! Make an all-out effort!’
The spirits of the people turned to a bundle of lights. They went into Hopeful’s body. Then Hopeful rose to the surface slowly. Hopeful revived and was empowered with more hopes!
Hookful wanted to poison Hopeful again but this time Hopeful jumped and shouted, “Hopeful-Chop!” It broke Hookful’s cannon hands! “Eye-Ray!” Hopeful shouted. His eyes shot a hot ultra-ray against Hookful. Hookful’s tail was on fire! “Um, it smells good, would you like some famous grilled monster tail?”
“X-ray!” Hopeful shouted again. He turned to a lot of lines. Those lines went through Hookful’s body. It made Hookful feel itchy and it fell down. Slowly, mighty Hookful turned into a small hedgehog! Hopeful was surprised. He asked, “Why did you become a monster?”
“Because I had no hopes. The other animals always bullied me because I had arrows on my body.”
“You should be hopeful. Try to make friends with them.” Hopeful said.
‘They were afraid of me! What should I do if they refused to become my friends?’ Hookful said.
‘Just try! You should keep your faith and hope!’ Hopeful insisted.
“OK, I will do that, thanks for your advice.” The little hedgehog replied and it went back to the forest.
Then Hero Hopeful healed the city by splashing the “hopeful-recovery lights”. All the people became hopeful again.
Hopeful resumed the peace and order. He turned back into a boy secretly again. At night, Markus watched the 3D pulse light show at Victoria Harbour.
“Oh, the light show is brilliant and amazing! Hong Kong is always the best!” People exclaimed.
Friends, always keep your faith and hope!
