Slowly she began to back away toward back door; she pressed her back against the fly screen and wrapped her hand around the door handle. Footsteps made their way toward their door and a fist banged against the wood, the door ricocheting off the fist and wiggling. Her mother then gasped and slowly walked to the door, wrapping her hand around her belly she opened the door and Djinda darted to hide in the kitchen.

Unfortunately the package only came with four tickets, so we had to travel alone. After six long hours of being in a private jet, we arrive in California. “Woah, look at that! Oh, and that! And that!” “We get it Agustin, you are amazed by Los Angeles,” Jacob said with a smirk. “Ok Mr. Hollywood, not everyone gets to travel around the world whenever they want,” Agustin backfired. Makenzie soon interrupted the argument with a scream. ‘Oh my gosh! Look! Hannah, look who that is,” Makenzie said, with tears trying to break out of her eyes. I glance over to my left, and I notice Justin BIeber and Shawn Mendes having a conversation. I felt as if i was going to black out. Then I see them getting closer and closer. Boy, is this a dream come

As he stumbled through the wet forest, branches smacking his face and bushes tugging at his boots, he spied a little cottage, with smoke rising from the chimney.

I haven’t thought about my old town in years, and here I am in front of my childhood home preparing myself for what I might see when I walk through this door. As I reached for the handle, the door swung open practically hitting me in the face. Astonished, I stood there utterly astonished. What made me even more surprised was the person opening the door…”Miss Caroline?” She seemed to have not realized me and ran off in a hurry.

Monotony had apprehended her. Throwing herself upwards, the girl quickly gathered her sprawled limbs and stood erect; the stiffening noise threatened to clog her throat once more. She could feel herself asphyxiating as the crunching drew closer. I must have left the door open, I must have left the door open, I must have left the door open, repeated in her head like a mantra.
