VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:

(THIS IS ONE OF THE PIECES OF PAPER I TOOK FROM ONE OF THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL  FOLDERS MY FATHER GAVE ME AROUND CHRISTMAS LAST YEAR. 

I am uploading this particular paper because it's one of only a handful of school assignments I ever wrote a story for in elementary school.  Another reason is that it's the 2nd oldest piece of writing I could find that Ive ever wrote.  The oldest piece isnt worth uploading.  -------------------------

 This would've been one of my first stories I ever wrote in my life, as I don't remember writing anything before 1995.  This is from October 1995. This was about 6 months before I wrote my first fantasy story in 1996.  I might upload that one too. -------

I did edit and revise it so that it was at least comprehensible and readable, otherwise it's exactly as I wrote it in 1995.  I LEFT OFF MY NAME AND THE TEACHER'S COMMENTS FOR PRIVACY REASONS.

ANYTHING WITH A (*) MEANS I CHANGED THE WORD AS IT DIDNT MAKE SENSE IN THE ORIGINAL.  I tried to fix grammar when needed and some of the wording with a (*) was very bizarre in the original draft on paper from '95.  Also, I never used the word Panther in my story as per the instructions.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:

(THIS IS ONE OF THE PIECES OF PAPER I TOOK FROM ONE OF THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL  FOLDERS MY FATHER GAVE ME AROUND CHRISTMAS LAST YEAR. 

I am uploading this particular paper because it's one of only a handful of school assignments I ever wrote a story for in elementary school.  Another reason is that it's the 2nd oldest piece of writing I could find that Ive ever wrote.  The oldest piece isnt worth uploading. It's from earlier in 1995 and it's extremely short. -------------------------

 This would've been one of my first stories I ever wrote in my life, as I don't remember writing anything before 1995.This is from October 1995.  -------

I did edit and revise it so that it was at least comprehensible and readable, otherwise it's exactly as I wrote it in 1995.  I LEFT OFF MY NAME AND THE TEACHER'S COMMENTS FOR PRIVACY REASONS.

ANYTHING WITH A (*) MEANS I CHANGED THE WORD AS IT DIDNT MAKE SENSE IN THE ORIGINAL.  I tried to fix grammar when needed and some of the wording with a (*) was very bizarre in the original draft on paper from '95.

 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ANYONE THAT READS THIS!  I LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH.  )
