Blossoming from the Garden
Natalie. Age 12. Richmond, California

It was a sunny day in San Pablo. It was 12:01 in the afternoon. Jason was walking around in his neighborhood. Jason really didn’t respect nature that much. He was wearing some black pants and a jacket that was half red and half blue. Jason met a boy named KK. He had a red jacket, blue pants and red shoes. Jason came over his house to work on some sketches they made in art class. Then Jason fell and his phone went flying like a hawk going down for a rat.

“No, my phone!” Jason shouted.

Jason ran out the house, with KK right behind him.

“Your phone went into the forest!” KK shouted.

Jason and KK walked closer to the forest. Jason looked at the forest like it was a dead backyard. Jason walked back.

“Why are you walking back?” KK asked.

“I don’t want to be in there!!!” shouted Jason.

“Well you have to go if you want your phone back,” said KK.

Jason looked at KK like he was crazy, but he walked a little bit closer to the forest. “I … can't … KK,” said Jason. KK pushed Jason into the forest. Jason's eyes lit up like a bright light in the dark. Jason and KK walked deeper into the forest until they saw a deer with Jason's phone in his mouth!

“My phone!!!” shouted Jason.

Jason and KK ran at the deer, and the deer was running away from them. While the deer was running, the phone fell out of his mouth. But when it fell, the phone fell right beside a landslide and the water. Jason and KK had to choose whether to go through the landslide or the water.

“Let's take the landslide,” said Jason.

“I don’t know,” said KK.

“OK, let's go!!” said Jason.

Jason grabbed KK by the waist and threw him into the landslide!

“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” shouted KK.

KK was screaming like there was no tomorrow. Jason jumped into the landslide after him.

“That was not cool, Jason. I could have been killed. Are you crazy?” said KK.

“Well, it could have been better!” said Jason. But as they looked at the ground, the water was rising! Jason and KK tried climbing up, but they couldn't.

“I...can't…swim,” said KK.

KK was blushing bright red on his face. Jason saw he was blushing so much because he couldn't swim and he was in high school. Jason grabbed KK’s arm and pushed him up. Jason just jumped. Jason looked and saw the phone on the ground.

“Look, there it is! Let's get it!!!” said Jason.

“No, wait! We need a well-thought-out plan if we want to get your phone,” said KK.

“Well, what is it then? How are we going to get it?“ asked Jason.

KK was looking around to find something to grab onto. KK grabbed a branch and some string, wrapped it together, and threw it up a tree. “Grab on” Said KK. KK and Jason shouted. Jason and KK fell on the ground.

“Yuck” Jason shouted.

“What is it?” asked KK.

Jason had a bug in his mouth. It tasted like old cheese that has been left out for too long.

“What is that noise?” asked Jason.

Jason and KK were both scared to the bone. Jason and KK could hear owls and bats flying around them. Jason and KK did not know that there was a big hole under them! They fell into the hole. Jason and KK looked up. There was a big forest in front of them!

“What is that, the forest?” asked Jason.

“Yes, that is the forest,” said KK.

KK grabbed his hand and ran into the forest. KK sat down and made Jason sit down too. KK made a flower crown for Jason, bright yellow flowers with brown in the middle. Jason started to cry.

“What's wrong? Why are you crying??” asked KK.

“I had nobody like you to care about me that much. My parents and my little brother died in a car crash…” said Jason.

KK hugged Jason, and Jason felt the forest hugging him too. Jason felt a bright light in him that was telling him, “It’s OK—I am here for you.” He knew that was the voices of his parents and his little brother.

“I promise I will now respect nature,” said Jason.

Jason felt like a flower blossoming in a fresh field. After that day, Jason and KK made a garden in the back of Jason's house. From now on, Jason would respect the Beauty of Nature.
