David slid the screen door open and walked outside. There was a bright yellow ball in the sky. I don’t know why it just sat there but it seemed to light everything up! The green grass covered lawn was sparkling from leftover morning dew.


I saw three more boys that were about David’s size in the yard with him. The boys were gathered in a kind of square shape. David tossed me roughly to the boy on the right of him. The air whistled through my ears. I landed in his hands. Before I knew it, I was flying through the air again. I was tossed from boy to boy, and starting to get bored of it. Suddenly, David’s mom called, “David! Charlie! Max! Carson! Come in for snacks!” All at once, the boys ran as fast as light to the door, dropping me on the soggy grass. I waited for them to come back. I waited as an orange striped cat strolled along the fence. I waited as leaves drifted past me in the wind. I waited as a small black spider crawled in the dirt. I waited as red, orange, and yellow appeared in the sky. The bright yellow ball started to disappear behind the mountains. It started to get dark and I began to worry. What if they never came back?  What if evil raccoons found me and popped me with their razor-sharp claws? Or worse, what if angry birds came, picked me up and put me in a trash can to be taken to the dump and burned by lava underground and never seen or heard of again? My heart beat rapidly. Who knew what would become of me in this big evil world?


Well, surprisingly, none of that happened. Instead, there was a curious possum that came and rolled me to a tree. There was a red wagon right next to me that the breeze moved a fraction of an inch, but just enough to roll me through a small hole in the fence. Unexpectedly, I landed in a field. All around me was grass. I didn’t see anything else. Not even another fence! Not even a small stream or puddle! Just grass. So the rest of the night was peaceful. Nothing much happened, just blackish green grass blowing in the cool breeze. I fell asleep almost instantly, more out of boredom than anything else.



In the morning, I noticed it had rained a bunch during the night and there was a large puddle about a yard away from me. There was some sort of weird bird standing right in front of me. It had big webbed feet and a strange wide long mouth and nose that were connected. It’s arms were covered in white fluffy sticks. I saw more of these birds swimming in the puddle.  What were they?
