Cody is Found by Jajo
"Haa" I yawned as I awoke ,and pulled my body to a 90 degree angle. The sun glinted through the white curtains of the window. The brightness of the room gave me a good morning.
I shared a bedroom along with my brothers. My little brother ,Sheb ,was snoring in the bottom bunk. My big brother ,Zeke,shared the top bunk along with me. Our bed was squished in the corner.
The next corner ,going counter-clockwise had a shelf. The under-part of the shelf was filled with a basket of toys ,cars and a safe.
The next corner (still going counter clock-wise) had the closet ,and cabinets that lead to the door. The door lead to the hall and the last corner ,touching the door was an aisle.
The floor under our bed was lined with planks. The roof was lined with bumps ,like a rippling water surface. My hand grazed the bumpy ceiling ,and I filled my lungs with morning air.
Bed ,wrinkled from our constant movements in our sleep ,was still soft from years. The morning air had a hint of milk in it.
My stuffed dog ,Cody was missing. Two months ago he had been lost. He had a U-shaped nose V-shaped ears and a big-head. He was my first stuffed animal.
I turned ,on my knees ,and faced my wrinkled pillow. Behind my blue pillow ,was a 2-inch gap between the bunkbed and the wall. I slammed my head against the wall and there stood a shadowy figure.
The shadowy looked hand-like. I pulled it out ,and it was a stuffed animal. The dusty V-shaped ears were familiar.
His U-shaped nose and brown eyes made me dust him off (since he looked familiar ). There the big head of Cody stood ,as if asking "What took you so long? Do you know how loud you snored?"
