Without Transitions

I am haily and I am 12 years old. Can you imagine if you switch

places with you dog for one day it would be wired if you didn’t even know

what is going on how did you became a dog? Would that happened to me

one day.

I was at my house in my room it was at night I was thinking about

dogs and when I slept I was dreaming about them too and I don’t know why.

When I woked up I felt so cold them I touched my hair

and it was rough. I cold hear all the birds singing then…I opened my eyes

and I notice that I was sleeping out side laying in the grass and I got so

scared. I tried to get inside to see what was happening buy my mom would

not let me in she would say, “Go outsidshagy,” and I said, “what is wrong

with you mom i am your daughter,” but she would not answer me and she

didn’t let me in, so I stayed outside. I was laying back in the grass and I

looked at my foot and they wore not mines they looked like shagy’s foots

then I touched my ears and they wore long and hairy I looked at the window

and all I could see was a dog reflecting in the window, I creamed but all I

could hear wore barkings, I went crazy. I saw somebody opening the

door and it was me! I thought, “oh no that’s impossible!” I cannot belive that

I became a dog and that my dog had became me.

The Sandbox

  • One day, when I was five, I went to a local park with my mom. While I was playing in the sandbox, I noticed a boy about my age in a wheelchair. I went over to him and asked if he could play. Since I was only five, I couldn’t understand why he couldn’t just get in the sandbox and play with me. He told me he couldn’t. I talked to him for a while longer, then I took my large bucket, scooped up as much sand as I could and dumped it into his lap. Then I grabbed some toys and put them in his lap, too.

  • My mom rushed over and said, “Lucas, why did you do that?”

  • I looked at her and replied, “He couldn’t play in the sandbox with me, so I brought the sand to him. Now we can play in the sand together.”
