Samantha, Age 10, Elkhart, IN

As the night grew darker I began to realize I was in deep trouble. Mom and Dad were going to kill me. I had been out and lost track of time. I looked at my watch - it was 1:13,three hours after I was supposed to be home. I knew good and well I was grounded, BIG time. I remember Dad's face fresh in my head." Curfew is 10:00 Laura." Sitting there at the stop light in my Camry I was getting frustrated. I was wasting time. I decided to take a chance. I put my foot on the gas and pushed down HARD. I almost got in a wreck but I didn't care, I had to get home. I was driving down Asphalt Drive. till I came to my cozy little house. But it wouldn't be too cozy for me tonight. I got out of the car and went to the door, then I realized I left my keys at the house when I left. "Oh No!" I went around the house trying to open all the windows and doors but there where all locked. I had only one choice. I started to bang on the door and ring the door bell till my Mom and Dad woke up. They opened the door and spoke "Well Well, well look who we have here, there is a note on the table for you." I picked up the note it said GROUNDED. Just as I thought. Just a lesson for you: don't ever stay out past curfew.
