Meagan and Christie

Meagan and Christie

By Alexandra

It was the Summer. Christie had a friend named Meagan. They always did everything together. They called the big dipper the kite and they loved playing in the lake and pointing out clouds that look like a certain shape.

One day while they were in the river they were being a bit too competitive. Meagan was winning so Christie said, “Oh yeah” and took a big step backward and was in the deep water. She said, “Help, I cannot swim.” Then Meagan swam to her but then they were both stuck. “I want Michael” Meagan said. “I want my siblings”, Christie said.

Then, they saw their pets. Christie saw her parrot named Flap and Meagan saw her dog named Scissors. And then Christie said, “Your daughter is in danger. Save them and Meagan too.” Then, Meagan said, “What can my dog do?” Christie said, “I have an idea Kristie said.” So she had a treat and wrote on it, ‘Your daughter is in danger. Please save her, and Christie too.’” Then when Michael and the other family members saw it they said, “Uh oh” and they all ran to the lake.

Then Michael made a boat and Christies siblings put a stick with a little triangle. Then they sailed and they were saved. They put them on the boat. And then, they were never too competitive again.

The end.

Stay With Me Sister

By Alexandra Schaeffer
.
.
It was rainy. I was with my parents and my big sister. But then, one day there was a war. Killed our parents and then, before the war was over, a witch tickled my back. It felt like slimy worms but it was a naughty witch. She took me and put me on the broom and zoomed to where she lived.
.
When I went in the house, it was smelly. It was exactly where witches should live. But I remembered when I was three years old that witches get used to stink smells, they smell their hands more often. Then she cackled and then she said, “I will let you try and run to the house you used to live and if it is sunset and you are not there then I will get you. And everyday you can try and keep trying.”
.
I felt like saying, “Why can’t I just do it for a day or night?” But I did not say anything. Not a word crept into my mouth.
.
That day, when I was trying to get to my house, I did not make it. I was very close, I was ten inches away from my house, but unfortunately that doesn’t count.
.
The next night I tried and tried and tried and tried. I was really close. This time I was nine inches away from the house. But it just didn’t count. Why didn’t it count? I felt like blaming the witch but I was afraid that she wouldn’t give me any chances. Perhaps she would shorten my time.
.
The next night, I crossed my fingers and then I kept running and running and running and this time when I was only eight inches away from the house, I failed.
.
The next night, I said to myself, “It is my fourth chance. I need to make it. I need to! This time I will not cross my fingers, I will just run faster and faster! Who cares about my sweat?”
.
So, as I ran, I kept running. Sweat dropped out of me, and each one dropped out of me so fast. It was like puddles of sweat. It was quite gross to me. I didn’t have time to buy lettuce. Instead I took money from my pocket and I through it to the grocery stand and I got some lettuce.
.
It was sunset, but I was very far away. There was no way that the witch could get me. I was in the house after three seconds. I saw my sister. She was crying. I saw puddles and I tried tasting the puddles, they were all salty!
.
I took a step, I tapped her shoulder and she turned around thinking it was one of her robots that she invented to keep her company. Instead it was me. She cried and cried. She hugged me and kissed me and she always took care of me.
.
Even if there were any other wars, none of us got stolen.
The end.

I Love My Parents


By Alexandra Schaeffer
May 4, 2018


Once upon a time, there was a little girl who did not want to leave her parents. But then the parents wanted to bring her to school.  He was hired to be a teacher but he never got her as a student. So they did homeschool.
And then one day she ordered this beautiful dress that was simple.  And then one day the package could not make it so they asked the parents to get it. They knew how important it was and the sign said no kids allowed and it was too dangerous if the kids were outside without a grownup.  So unfortunately they put her somewhere where she would be babysat but she missed her parents.
The baby sitter felt bad for her so they tried acting a bit like her parents. They fed her her favourite food and her favourite dessert but it just wasn’t enough.  When she slept she had a very bad dream. Her dream was that she was separated from her parents forever but that was only a dream. When she woke up she cried. When she woke up she couldn’t see her parents so she was worried that they couldn’t make it.
She heard a ding-don on the door.  She thought it was her parents but when she looked it was the mailman delivering her dress. And she asked politely where is my parents? And the mailman politely said back, “The dress was from a very faraway country which was three days away. So you may have to wait for two more days. Is that clear?”  
When she heard the news she wasn’t satisfied with what she wanted so she cried. The babysitters gave her her favourite breakfast but still she missed her parents – it just wasn’t enough. Then when two days passed, when she woke up her parents still wasn’t there, she wondered where was her parents. Then she heard another ding dong, it was her grandpa.
 Even it wasn’t enough she still put a small grin on her face. She politely asked, “Why aren't my parents here?” The grandfather politely said you have to wait one hour more and then you will finally see your parents. Then her grin started to fade away and sadly she frowned.
When she waited another hour more she heard a ding dong, she said “It must be my parents!  It must be! I was really looking forward to it!” Then when she saw her parents she put a big grin on her face. Her frown faded away and she started to laugh. Her parents said, “Why are you laughing, didn’t you miss me?” She said, “I saw Grandpa and the mailman delivering the dress.” They said, “What? I thought it didn’t make it!” Then the parents said, “Here is the dress in a disappointed voice.”  Then they started realizing that they accidently ordered TWO dresses! They all laughed in confusion! And then after they fixed the problem they lived happily ever after!
