Once upon a time there was a girl that was shy but nice. She wore glasses so a group of girls called her a nerd. The girl’s name was Erica. Erica did not like mirrors but her mom Maria had bought a mirror. Maria didn’t like seeing herself in the mirror. She didn’t like cell phones so she just had a telephone. One day the group of girls were bullying her. They stole her socks, they put her in a box. Maria felt to hurt and alone. But the girls didn’t know that teacher had seen them bully Maria. The teacher pulled the group leader by her right ear. Then Maria saw the prettiest boy in school, Alexis. Alexis asked Maria out. Maria felt like she was flying in the sky, “fly, fly, fly” said a bird. Mari came back to earth and said “yes” to Alexis. A rainbow of love appeared. At night Maria couldn’t stop thinking of Alexis. The group leader of the bully’s was hurt because Maria had turned the tortilla.
Once there lived a kid. He had his ear on the telephone. He was looking at himself in the mirror with his glasses on. The kid hung up and looked at the floor that was covered with socks, so he got an idea of putting the socks in a box that was in the attic. When he got up to the attic he got hurt by stepping on a nail. He had trouble taking the ail off because he was alone in the night. The kid woke up and went outside when he was outside he saw a rainbow and also a lot of flies. The kid started to dig for gold because he was playing treasure hunt.
My Crazy Day by Yuliana
On, my glasses are so beautiful when I looked in the mirror. I go outside, oh my gosh I see a bright rainbow. I almost forgot to put socks on and my shoes. My telephone rang and I jumped cause it scared me. My mom called and said, “you’re in trouble young lady.” You broke my favorite box. I am alone I said to myself so I went to my mom’s house. When I was there my mom screamed, “Oh my Cutie Patootie, now go and dig seeds.” I went to dig up seeds then I heard a bee near my ear; a bee could fly. The bee stung my ear, AAAAH I scream it hurts. Later that night my mom put me to sleep and said close your eyes, tomorrow will be fine. Next day. AAAAH!

A boy named Agev Andril. He had trouble with his eyesight and needed new glasses. When he went to the glasses store there were all sorts of glasses. There were blue glasses, red glasses, big glasses, small glasses. He tried on the big glasses and looked in the mirror. When he looked in the mirror he broke by looking at it. Then he tried on some rainbow ones. He didn’t like how they looked so he threw them in the air and they flew across the room. After the worker got off of the telephone he caught Agev and Agev got in trouble. Agev said “I didn’t do anything.” The worker said “you didn’t see the glasses fly across the room?” Then a customer came in so he left and Agev didn’t get in trouble. Agev saw a pile of glasses so he had to dig throw them to find the right glasses. After a while he found some glow in the night glasses. When he tried them on he accidentally pinched his ear and got hurt. Then one of the workers told him to get a band-aid out of this box. He bought the glasses and went home. By the time he went home it was already dark so he couldn’t wait to try out his glasses. After he tried on his glasses, he went to bed. When he went to sleep he accidentally knocked off his glasses and they landed in a pile of socks. When he woke up he couldn’t find his glasses. He didn’t want his mom to find out so thankfully he was alone in his room. He decided to clean his room and then he found them in his sock pile. Then he stepped on his glasses and had to get new ones. Agev was really mad.
