My Short Story 

 Alex was asleep, dreaming peacefully, when he heard a familiar voice. “Alex? Alex?” Then someone started flicking him on the forehead. “WAKE UP!” I jerked awake. My friend, Jason was standing before me with a sword on his belt. “Get dressed,” he said. Before I could say anything, he walked out. When I got my clothes on, I peeked through the crack of my door. Jason paced backed and forth, muttering to himself, saying,  “They never should have said yes. I shouldn’t have done it!” couldn’t stand it. “What are you saying?” He turned to me, and then fainted.

Whoosh, as the boat splashed in the low wave.  Olive was woken up by the splash and went to see if her parents were up. Olive’s parents were making breakfast. Well, she went to look at the marvelous view of the ocean.  Then she started eating breakfast.  Then suddenly, a ton of waves formed and made the boat move side to side. Everyone become seasick,  and ran to the bathroom dizzily and fearful. Olive wished they never should have said yes to her for a boat ride. After that they never went on a boat ride ever.

The butter will make it way too fatty.” The Sugar Bag agreed saying, “They never should have said yes.” So, the humans continued, pouring the Flour Bag into a measuring cup, and repeated with the Sugar Bag. Eventually, the cookie sheet slid into the oven, and came out saying “YIPEEE!!! We are the Cookies!!!

 I woke up and my friend called me when I woke up and he wanted to have a sleepover today. I said I wanted too, but I had to wait for my parents to wake up to ask them if I could have a sleepover with my friend today, and I told him I would call him when my parents wake up. They ended up saying yes after a lot of begging to my parents. When my friends parents went to bed we got a lot of snacks and stayed up to 3 am! They never should have said yes!

Talia and Maria are doing a project with me. We’re going to do a diorama on the jungle. We started with trimming little plants to look like trees. “AHHH my tree looks like a dinosaur eating pizza!!!” shouted Maria with a happy tone in her voice. We did so much more things but, we did all of them wrong. Our creation is a mess. We walked into class with our project. “Hello girls, would you like to share your project?” said the teacher. “YES!!!” they said. We shared it and the whole class laughed. They should have never said yes!!!
