One wonderful evening in April, my family and I
were at the park eating hot dogs. The ducks were flying up in the nice
blue sky, the cool wind was blowing. The sun was bright like a diamond
ring. It was eighty degrees at the park. The day looked calm and
“Daniel, hi!” My uncle came and sat down next to me. He is thirty-eight
years old and his name is Noel. His skin color is brown, his eyes are
green. He had purple jeans and black Vans. His eyes seemed to be saying,
“Let’s start the Easter egg hunt.” We all got very happy.
All my other cousins and I went to a tree, so we wouldn’t see where the
adults hid the eggs. My auntie screamed very loudly, as if a huge
balloon had popped, "Look for the eggs." All of my cousins started to
look for the eggs. I got ten eggs and my cousin Rodolfo got fifteen.
Jose is my other cousin. He is fourteen years old, and his hair is
black. His skin color is caramel, his eyes are hazel brown. He had black
shorts and some black Converse. He said, ““Where’s Jeffery?”
It started to get very loud when my cousin said that. My uncle,
Jeffery’s dad, said to all of the cousins, "Go look for my son, Jeffery.
Please, whoever finds him gets $25.00.” All of my cousins split up in
2s. I went with Rodolfo. We went to one of his favorite parts of the
park, which is the river. We went there, but he wasn't there. My cousin
and I started to go everywhere in the park.
I went to where my uncle was and I told him, "Sorry, I couldn't find
him." He started to cry. When all the other kids came back they said the
same thing, "Sorry, we couldn't find him." Everyone went with my uncle
and cried with him, except Rodolfo and I, who went looking for Jeffery
at the beach. Once we got there we started looking for him at the shore.
He wasn't there, so went to some small cabins.
We remembered that he likes looking at people fishing. Once we got
there, we saw a small kid sitting on the concrete talking with a
stranger. He looked just like my cousin: skinny, long hair, and green
jeans. I screamed, “Jeffery, is that you?” Everyone looked at me, but
the little kid didn't. We went back very tired; we went through a
shortcut. Although it was a very cold place, it was the perfect place to
relax. We suddenly heard a strange noise in the leaves. It sounded like
a swoosh. We got very scared, but we climbed a tree like a cat. It
looked like a skinny kid in purple jeans. It was my cousin.
We went running, very happy, because we found my little cousin. Once we
got there everybody started to stare at us. We screamed, “We found
Jeffery!” As we got closer to the family, we all got so happy that my
auntie put on music. It got crazy, as if there were monkeys fighting. My
uncle called us over. He gave each one of us a $20.00 dollar bill. The
party ended, and we all went home very happy.
