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
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?"
