I finally reached school. I opened the door and started running. 2 bad things happened to me, I tripped over my shoelace and I got stopped by a teacher. It wasn’t just any old teacher, it was Mrs.Burglar. She was a strange teacher, and a strict teacher. Everyone knows in this school, to respect strict teachers, but Mrs.Burglar wasn’t any ordinary sixth grade teacher. Everything was weird about her, even her name. Once one of my older friends got her selected for his teacher and… he… let’s just say it didn’t end well. I finally reached class, and I reached just about the time Mrs.Johnson (my teacher) started explaining the project. “Hello Zack, please unpack and have a seat,” she said calmly. I don’t know who could be so calm on this day! She started calling out the groups. “Ben, Andrew, and Alicia, Zack, Annie, and Isabelle…” Great I was surrounded by girls, but that’s okay because in this school all the girls do the work and the boys fool around. You’re probably saying to yourself, “How come the teacher didn’t find out?” Well one day the girls wanted to tell the teacher, but a some boy said “You don’t want to be a snitch!” so they never told. I told the girls that I’m doing the drawing part and they should call me when they need me. The boys had their own fun and I had mine. When the boys were flying paper airplanes, I was drawing my latest project. The Sphoot. It’s a eagle, tiger, lion, and a zebra mixed together. Yes, I make weird animals...DON’T JUDGE. I was almost finished but then Mrs.Johnson said, “Okay class time for Reading!” I was almost finished with the Sphoot, I just had to draw his left foot. I looked at my soon-to-be-masterpiece. He was footless! Oh well, I’ll have to finish him at recess. We did independent reading and then it was lunch time. I traded with my friend, Ben. I traded my cookie for a brownie. I couldn’t believe he traded a brownie! Who does that? We went out on the playground for recess. Everyone else played while I got to business. I tried to finish my footless Sphoot, but I had this weird feeling that something was under my shoe, not a animal but some sort of trail. I looked down, there was a trail! I shoved my drawing into my pocket and I followed the trail. When I stopped to look back, I didn’t see my school any more! I just saw trees. Some dead and some with pretty colors on them. Then I looked up. The sky was PURPLE! Since when? Then I looked down. The grass was BLUE? What is this crazy madness?! I looked ahead of me. There was a huge forest with YELLOW trees? The bushes were PINK? Where am I? I heard a sound to the right… wait now the left… and now...WHOA! Something jumped in front of me, forcing myself to crash into a pile of leaves. I couldn’t quite see what it was, when I stood up, I think I was looking at my drawing. I poked my pencil at it. It ROARED. DEFINITELY NOT MY DRAWING! But there was something missing it was…… his foot! I started to think I was going crazy! I had no idea where I was and how I was going to get back to my school! I took me a few minutes to realize that if give the Sphoot a foot and make him talk and travel to different places really fast then I could get back to my school in no time! I took out my drawing from my pocket, sat on a nearby tree stump and started to get to work. In a few minutes I finished the foot for the Sphoot. Then I added a caption. It said “The Sphoot. Half eagle, half lion, half tiger, half zebra. It can travel to places really quickly, it can talk, and it can fly.” After I wrote that the Sphoot began to talk. It had a really… I’ll just say his voice was surprising to hear, and unique. “Hello boss...WHAT! I HAVE A VOICE, I HAVE A VOICE!” he said galloping in circles with those tiger paws. “I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! THANK YOU BOSS!” he said still running around. He jumped up and immediately started flying and swirling in the sky.
Have you ever been lost like Zack?
