My New Best Friend
It all started on may 3, 2002. I was a young child just learning. My parents got home at 5:00 pm. When the babysitter left, the door didn’t close. I saw rays of light knocking at the door. I crawled over to the door. My fingers cracked it open. My eyes exploded with colors, as I looked out. While not paying attention, I fell into the pile of grass clippings next to the railing. Rolling out of the clippings, I continued my journey to lots of metal boxes moving and releasing the same toxic smell from my dad’s snowmobiles. Loud honking noises filled the air. I was looking at a white stripe on cracked grey dirt. Just then a figure moved toward me with barking sounds. It was moving closer and picked me up by my bib tossing me into the soft feeling of daisies. Looking up I heard yelps. My parents ran out spotting me in the grass. They heard the sound, while walking over and seeing a dog on the pavement. The vet said she was ok. The dog woke while mom put the collar around my best friend.
