Problems at the Park
Alondra. Age 11. San Pablo, California

I woke up to a screaming alarm clock that demanded that I get out of bed. I really couldn’t argue with my clock because I’m usually running late during the morning. Instead of hitting the snooze button, I got out of bed and got dressed. I suddenly remembered that today was the day to go the park with four of my best friends.

I wore a black t-shirt with a baby lion on it that said “Rawr,” black skinny jeans, and a black flower crown on my head. I looked at my cell phone and noticed it was 10:00 am. This morning I wasn’t late. I had one hour to meet my friends at the park.

I closed the door, just so nobody would be able to see it was messy. I went down the stairs with the sound of my high tops going down the steps. My parents were in the kitchen making breakfast, but when they saw me all dressed up, they knew I was going out for a while.

“I’m going to go to the park to see my friends, if that’s okay, since we live close to the park,” I said so they would not worry about where I was going.

“Okay, but don’t you want to eat?” my mom asked me, but before I could answer, I slammed the door with a bang and left.

I was walking to the park when I saw that Areana, Isela, Taty, and Imari were already waiting for me at the front gate.

“Haiiii,” Areana yelled, even though I was right in front of her.

“Hi,” I answered back at her with a wave.

I noticed that we all wore black skinny jeans but different shirts. While I wore a lion shirt, Isela wore a white shirt with polka-dots. Areana wore a shirt that said Sword Art online (an anime show we both like). Taty wore a shirt that had a camera on it that was all white except for the camera, which was black, and Imari wore a plain pink shirt.

We entered the park and walked along the sidewalk. While Imari, Isela, Taty, and Areana were talking about something I didn’t even know, since I had my head in the clouds, a tree landed right in front of us, which made us jump.

“Sorry, ladies, we didn’t see you,” one man said holding a chainsaw. We walked around that poor fallen tree lying on the ground, and then continued walking. I suddenly noticed a family looking upset because their food got burned. “That’s too bad,” I thought to myself.

We continued walking until we sat on a bench and just looked around at the park. A lot of things were happening all at once: trees were falling, it was really hot, a kid was having a panic attack.

Areana suddenly said, “You’re acting like the wind: silent but we can feel your presence,” and I just smiled

I suggested that we should go home as I saw the sun was being blocked by clouds, like it was saying it was going to rain. Suddenly rain fell and we were getting soaking wet. We couldn’t really see, so it took us a while to find the entrance of the park. A little while later we found it and ran out.

“Maybe we should go to my house because I live closer,” I suggested, “Good idea!” Isela yelled

“What about our moms?” Imari yelled too. “I will tell my mom to call your moms so they won’t have to worry and you can sleep over, since it seems it will rain for a while,” I said, and they all nodded. We ran to my house and finally made it. We stepped inside to see my mom sitting in the living room. She got up and got a towel to dry us off.

“Mom, you need to call their moms since it seems it might rain for a while,” I said and she nodded.

But everything stopped when I heard a beeping sound. Suddenly, I woke up and I was in my room. I turned my alarm off and noticed it was Saturday, the day I was supposed to see my friends at the park.

I got dressed in a black shirt with a lion, black skinny jeans, a black flower crown, and walked my way to the park to see Isela, Areana,Taty, and Imari. I was wearing what showed in my weird dream.

This was no dream!
