The sun was shining, birds were chirping, wind was blowing, and butterflies were flying. "Good morning," Jackson said.

"Well, good morning to you too," Melisa said. Melisa and Jackson went to have breakfast "Yummmm, my favourite, honey on toast."

Melisa and Jackson went to the park to play with some of their friends. One hour later, they decided to leave. "Bye," Jackson said to his friends.

"Hey Jackson, let's go to 7-11 to get some milk and snakes." So Melisa and Jackson went to 7-11.

"There is a short cut."

"Are you sure?"

"I am absolutely sure."

"Okay, let's go before it's too late, Melisa.Ē

So Jackson said, "We are supposed to go left." They went left and not right and they walked for like half an hour.

"Where is the 7-11? It is supposed to be right here."

"Ya, but it's not."

"Ok let's keep walking."

"Jackson, why are we at the forest?"

"I do not know," Jackson said.

"Let's go back home." Melisa said.


So they went into the forest. They saw a man in a tree, and they asked him, "What is your name?"

"My name is John." And he was 43 years old. He lived in a tree, and he was like a boy who really likes cars and sports. And he played basketball, and he had really big hands.

"So, what do you like?" Melisa said.

"I like sports and I LLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEE the NHL hockey games," John said. "What do you like, Melisa?"

"Well I really really really like sparkles. And where do you live John?"

"I live right in a tree."

"Iiiiinnnnnn a what?" Melisa said.

"Do you want to see my house?"

"Sure," Jackson said. They went walking down to John's house. Melisa saw the house when they were almost there.

"It could use some bedazzle to it," Melisa said.

"So where do you live in the forest?" asked John.

"What did you say?" Jackson said. "We do not live in the forest."

"But why are you here?"

"Because we were walking to the 7-11, and we turned left not right and we walked for about one hour and then it led us to here. But when we were walking it felt like 55 hours, and now we donít know where to go."

"I know the way out."

"You do? Can you show us where to go?"
