One hot sunny day in my backyard, Karla and I were
fighting with water balloons. They were as clear as glass cups. Then we
heard a hiss. It was a snake as shiny as silver. The snake’s skin was a
faded brown color, patterned with small triangles. Its fangs were white
as a blank sheet of paper and shiny as a diamond.
When it slithered away, Karla and I tried to get it before it hurt
someone. After we thought of getting the snake, it bit my dog. Karla and
I got into a conflict because she let the dog out.
“Why did you let the dog out?” I yelled angrily

I was so glad that Lucy came. This was my big moment because she was
fine. We went back to try to get the scary snake. Karla and I were
Once we found the snake again, Karla called the animal catcher. Once he
came, he got the snake. The man looked brave. He had a hat that looked
like a green leaf, and he also had some skinny jeans that looked really
