Fish Magic: Albert
Peyton, Age 7, Hampstead, MD
"Is it time to get up already?" said Josie's brother Timmy from the bottom bunk.
"It is a school day, Timmy," cried Josie who had just woken up. Josie climbed down from her bunk and Timmy got down from the bottom bunk. They got dressed and went downstairs to have breakfast.
"Hurry up, you two," said their mother Heather.
"Hi Dad," said
Timmy and Josie. Their dad's name was Rick. He worked in the fire
department. When Josie and Timmy finished their breakfast, they walked
"Me too" said Timmy.
When it was
lunchtime, Josie sat next to her friend Sally. Timmy sat next to his
friend Jason. Timmy and Jason sat at the back table and Josie and Sally
sat at the front table. It was recess and Josie went straight to the
swings. Timmy went straight to the monkey bars. Sally went to the swings
with Josie. Jason went to the monkey bars with Timmy.
"Can we keep it?"
"His name is
Albert" said Dad, "and we might keep him".
"Where did you get him?" asked Timmy.
"We got him from the stream in the park.”
"He is so cute,"
said Josie. Timmy loved Albert too. Albert was mostly gray with a heart
on his head. He also had stripes on his sides. His fin tips were orange.
He lived in a bowl with stones and he ate bread crumbs. Albert was the
cutest thing ever. His stripes were brown, his belly was white and he
had big black eyes that were really, really cute. Albert was adorable.
"Wow," said Timmy, Mom and Dad together.
"Amazing, right?" said Josie. "I'm going to write a story about Albert in reading today," said Josie. "We always write stories in reading; it is fun to write stories. I think so"
When it was reading time, Josie's teacher, Ms. Callie, asked the class what their stories were going to be about. Josie's hand went straight up. "Josie, what is your story going to be about?" asked Ms. Callie.
"My story is going to be about a foster fish called Albert," said Josie.
"Very nice, Josie,"
said Ms. Callie. Ms. Callie called on Josie's friend Sally next. Sally's
story was going to be about her favorite animal, the zebra. "Very nice,
Sally," said Ms. Callie.
"Are you ok?" asked
"What happened?" asked Timmy.
"Albert jumped over the container and scared me, so I fell down and now he is on the counter," said Josie. Josie put Albert back into the container and got onto the stool again. Albert was glad to be back in the water.
“Come on, Timmy, let's play outside" said Jason.
"Let's go" said
"What is it?" asked Timmy.
"It is time to get
up," said Josie. Josie got down from her bunk and went to feed Albert.
Timmy went outside to feed the Lang's bunny, Popcorn. Josie packed her
lunch and grabbed her backpack. Timmy packed his lunch and grabbed his
backpack. After they grabbed their stuff, they got kisses from Albert.
"My story is going to be about our foster fish, Albert," said Josie.
"Very nice" said
"Yeaaaaaa!" screamed Josie. Josie ran to ALbert's bowl and gave it a big hug and Albert found the perfect home!
