    They opened the door, and I walked in. Before I could look up, I felt so many eyes staring at me. Once I could get the nerve to look up it was my family and all my dad’s friends. They sat me down in a chair. Everyone was still staring as the nurse came up to me. She sat down next to me and immediately said “Ashley…” like she knew me or had met me before. Then she said “your father was in a serious accident today, and he did not make it.” I busted out into tears. I couldn’t look up while I knew everyone was still staring at me. My mom asked me if I wanted to see him. I jumped right up and said “Yes!” They directed me to the hospital room. When I saw him, I figured they were kidding, he would wake up anytime now. I sat down next to him and realized he was yellow. His skin was pure yellow, it was almost like mustard. I just sat there and stared. He wasn’t moving, not even flinching, but neither was I. So he was alright,…

Unembarrassed in only the way that children have, she kept spinning. Turning and turning and turning, seemingly never getting dizzy. Her pigtails whipped about, weapons in their own right. “I know where Harmony is,” came her voice, pitch rising and falling as she turned. “I know where they’re…

    To support this claim my evidence was on page 62 and page 154. On page 62 it shows how when a new girl walks in her classroom because she is new. But, what Cece doesn’t like about Ginny (the new girl) is that she has been staring at her for the whole day. But worst is that she stared at her for days and weeks. Until Ginny finally asks if she wears hearing aids. And of course Cece answers umm I guess. And on page 154 it shows how Cece hates showing the microphone to the teacher because…

    day I ever saw her. There was some nonsense into why jessica never liked me. Jason and I worked and worked, hours passed by I decided to take my break, it was 5:00 pm in the afternoon and the store was thankfully dead so I made my way to the back and grabbed the cookies I had boughten before I had clocked in and made my way out.

    Luna was jolted awake by a loud noise. She got out of her bed curious what the noise could be, hoping it was just a guard, and that no one was hurt or need help. She went to the door, carefully opening it. In front of her was a mailmare. Luna stared trying to process what she saw before her. She never got mail. Why was there a mail mare here. When she realized she was staring, she shook herself out of her stupor and relaxed. “I have a letter for you,” the mare said. “Thank you.” She…

    I held out better than my first mate Rascal. His cheeks were gaunt. His figure was tall and slim. I could see his ribs through his time-worn shirt. His skin was tanned from the exposure to the sun. I looked at him and all I could see was a shell of the man that he used to be. In the afternoon, I sat by the fire with Rascal. I slowly watched the life drain from his eyes before he keeled over and died. I became the only one on the island, the only one left of my crew. I lost everything to the sea…

    had to adjust to a new environment and make new friends. I was very shy at that moment and terrified of talking to people or I should say I literally avoided talking to them. By the time I was in 5th grade, I became comfortable with my new school. In fact, I enjoyed my new school more that my former school. Anyway, we had a play one day and I performed the best way that I could. I didn’t know that my teachers were watching us, so they could choose who is the best candidate for joining the…
