Writing assignment : true 100-word story.
Her name was Darlene,she was a nine-year old girl in my grade four class. One Friday afternoon, she came to me excited, “look Miss,I’ve taken out two cookbooks from the library.”
“What will you do with them?” I asked.
“I will cook breakfast for my family!” She smiled.
On Monday, two boys in my class, came running to give me the news.
“Miss,” both said, in one breath, “Darlene is dead!”
I looked at them in awe, “No it’s not true.” I exclaimed!
“Yes Miss,” both yelled, “her next door neighbor killed her for money!”
Melanie’s father told her to stay seated on the bench in the shopping mall until he returns.
Don’t worry I’ll be back soon, he said.
The poor child sat there, she did not even stand up to see the different things in that large shopping mall, she was afraid her father will worry if he came back and she was not there.
Morning turned to afternoon, and then it was late evening, her friend Georgia offered to give her a ride home,she refused, she believed her father would come and get her.
She was so tired, she fell asleep, she dreamed her father was telling her to go home, he was unable to come for her, when she opened her eyes she found herself surrounded by friends staring at her, Georgia laid her arm around her shoulder and said, “I’m so sorry your father was killed when he tried to cross the street.”
