It all started one
sunny Sunday 4th of July afternoon. My friend Wendy and I were walking
along Garvin Avenue. As we approached the grocery store to buy ice cream
for ourselves, a soft warm breeze kissed our face and made the shiny
green grasses in the neighborhood slow dance with each other. We also
noticed blooming red roses, tulips and daisies. Pit-bulls barked at us
like huge monsters. We could smell freshly baked bread from a new bakery
in our neighborhood. I felt sensational.
Wendy is a 5 foot tall, 11 year-old girl who’s skinny in a good way. Her
hair color is black as printer ink, her skin is cinnamon brown, and her
tree bark brown eyes are as big as red apples. She was wearing a red
skirt with a flowered belt, ocean blue boots, and pink pants with
flowers. Her eyes seemed to be saying “you look FABULOUS!” While we were
walking, we heard a loud scream coming from the Wilsons’ house. Two huge
golden yellow Labrador dogs ran out of the front door of the Wilsons’
house to chase an ice cream truck driving down the street.
Suddenly we looked at each other and began to chase the dogs that were
chasing the ice cream truck. Although I really wanted to go to the
store, I thought that catching the dogs would be the best thing to do
for the Wilson family. Mr. Wilson screamed at his dogs all the way from
“Lili! Carla! Get back here RIGHT NOW!”
We could see sweat dripping off Mr. Wilson’s face. If fear has a look,
his face would’ve been it. He looked worried. So did I.
Then Wendy and I started to catch up to the dogs. Then all of a sudden
one of the dogs turned left and the other one turned right. So, Wendy
turned left to chase one of the dogs, and I turned right to chase the
other dog. However, I eventually lost both Wendy and the dog she was
chasing. When I finally caught the dog I was chasing, I returned it to
Then I began to look for Wendy. First, I looked for her at her house.
She wasn’t there. Then I looked in the park and grocery store across the
street from the park. After looking for her all afternoon, I finally
gave up and went home
As I walked through my front door, I saw her sitting on the edge of my
sofa next to the dog she was chasing. When I told her all the places
that I looked for her, she began to laugh really loud. We both had a
good laugh at that moment.
