“Mia look over here, it’s a wood pecker, he
is making a hole!” cried Aria.
“Oh ya, I think I have seen that type before,” replied Mia.
Aria and Mia were best friends and were on a walk in the forest near
their houses. They were very curious eleven year olds and wanted to look
at everything they could. The two girls watched as a gopher poked his
head out of his hole. But as the gopher did so a crystal clear
aquamarine rock tumbled out of the dirt and caught the girls' attention.
“Hey look at the aquamarine rock that fell out of the dirt, it almost
looks magical,’’ gasped Aria with an exited expression on her face.
So Aria picked it up and Mia suggested, “Maybe we could look at the rock
when we eat lunch? I’m getting hungry…”
“Ya sure, I am getting hungry too.” So the girls found a nice mossy area
in the forest to eat and started to look at the rock.
“It's so cool; I have never seen a rock like it,” exclaimed Mia.
“But no rock is the same right ? Anyway, ya, it’s a pretty cool rock!”
responded Aria. “Hey, did you feel that? I think it’s starting to rain,”
Aria squealed as she put her jacket hood over her head.
“Come on, let's get out of here before we get soaking wet!” shrieked
Mia, and the two girls left running for cover. Little did they know that
they were leaving the aquamarine rock out in the open where they had
When the girls got home they immediately realized that they had forgot
their treasured rock. “Hey, I thought that you got it!”
“But I thought you got it !” Mia and Aria argued.
“Auuuuuuugh!” the girls shouted in frustration.
“Well, I guess that we will have to go back and get it,” Aria said with
her voice filled with anger.

So the girls went back to where they had their picnic, and the rock was
nowhere to be seen.
“Oh man, the rock's not here. What are we going to do? It was a one of a
kind rock, and we will never find anything like it!” yelled Mia.
“Ya well, maybe we should look harder. It's just a little rock. We are
going to have to look hard to find something like that!” commented Aria.
So the girls looked for a long time until they were soaking wet.
Eventually they gave up and started their way home. “Too bad, that was a
really cool rock,” sulked Mia.
Then, without warning, they saw a bright light shining behind them. They
turned around as soon as they saw the light and noticed that the bright
light was coming from a little aquamarine stone on the ground.
“Why is it glowing?” questioned Mia.
“It's probably just our eyes playing a trick on us. Just grab the rock
and we can talk about it when we get home,” exclaimed Aria. So Mia
grabbed the rock, but when she did so she disappeared with a pooofff,
just like that, and so did Aria. The girls were asleep, so when they
woke up it was confusing because they were not at home or in the forest
but in something that looked like a big cloud. Clouds are wet because
they fill up with water, so they were wet too. “What happened, where are
we, and why are we wet?!” said Mia very surprised.
“How did we get here and where is our aquamarine rock? The last thing I
remember is us forgetting our rock and we went to get it and us coming
back for it, but when we came back the rock was glowing, but I still
don’t get how we got here” questioned Aria.
Although they thought they were alone, they heard this booming voice
come from behind them. “Why are you in my cloud? This is my cloud, not
yours. Get out!” came the booming voice.
“Who are you and how do we get out? demanded Aria .
“I am the master of this cloud, and how dare you talk to me like that?”
hollered the cloud master. And yes the girls had been teleported to a
magical cloud and did not know how to get out.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, a rain drop( the cloud master) ran out from
behind a piece of cloud. In a booming voice he hollered, “I am the cloud
master, and I want to know why you are here!”
“We touched an aquamarine rock and pooff we were gone,” replied Mia and
“What, you touched Great Aunt Petunia’s aquamarine teleporting magical
mystical teleporting rock! Hey wait, I already said teleporting. Anyway,
you touched her rock. I have been looking for that thing for ages, even
though I have not been alive for ages, buuut still you touched it!”
The girls were very confused because they did now know what the cloud
master was talking about or how they got there and even how a rain drop
could be talking to them.
“Who is Aunt Petunia and are you crazy ? There is no such thing as a
teleporting magical mystical rock!” exclaimed Aria very annoyed.
“Aunt Petunia is my auntie. She lost her rock and now you found it so
hand it over!” the cloud master demanded.
“No, not before you tell us how to get home!” shouted the two girls.
“Oh fine, come over here. So what you have to do is line up these rocks
over in that cloud bin and line them up from darkest to lightest and
then wait,” declared the cloud master, so Aria and Mia did what the
cloud master told them to do.
“Oh, that looks pretty, the order is olive green, aquamarine, lemon
yellow, and last but not least clear. But why is it not glowing?” asked
“Because you're not being patient!” accused the cloud master, and sure
enough the rocks started to glow and the cloud started to shake then.
Poooofff—they were gone.
Once again they were asleep in the forest where there journey had first
begun. When they woke up they were confused. “What happened? And how was
a rain drop talking to us? We must have fallen asleep and just had a
strange dream!” Aria thought. “But wait, there is one way we can tell if
it was real or not: if you have the green rock, the aquamarine rock, the
yellow rock and the clear one, then that proves that we have been
there." So Aria looked in her pocket and there they were.
“But what about the cloud master? He wanted the rock back,” asked Mia.
I guess it teleported back with us,” suggested Aria.
“Oh well, we still have the rock, so we can always go back. Anyway,
let’s go to my house and talk.”
And they did.
