During the summer time at 7:00 at night in the garden………

There is a woman in Florida who has 5 kids. Their names are Sierra, (twins) Kierra, Myra, Tyrone, and Devin. Lastly the mom’s name, Teresa. They also have a divorced mother and father. One day their mother Teresa was

Tending her garden. She decided to grow a pumpkin. One day she went to her garden because she had nothing to do then she saw her pumpkin.

She said, “Oh look at that my pumpkin. I totally forgot about it. This pumpkin is HUGE. This could make enough pumpkin pie for three rounds of Thanksgiving.”

She took the pumpkin inside, took out a knife and put the pumpkin on the cutting board. She held the knife up high above the pumpkin and it started to glow like a star in the sky as she brought it closer. Her eyes widened because she never saw a glowing pumpkin in her life. She called Sierra.

“Yes?” she screamed.

“Come down here and see something.” Mom said.

She came and she dropped her IPod as soon as she saw the pumpkin and screamed.

“What are we going to do with this glowing pumpkin in our kitchen?” Mom said.

They decided to make pumpkin pie and they ordered a bigger refrigerator to put the pumpkin in. They went to the grocery store. When they came back from the grocery store the teens were eating McDonald’s with their dad. Sierra dropped the grocery bags. She was so excited. She ran to her father and gave him a BIG hug

Hi James nice to see you again, bye.” Their mother said

Nice to see you to, goodbye

And he left with no words. They finished their McDonald’s then Sierra and her mom went to the store to get a prom dress for Sierra because her prom is tomorrow night they drove to Ratchet 21.

“Mom, I found the perfect dress look it is baby blue and has diamonds all over the heart – shaped dress line also crystal gems all over the belt can I get it pretty please with 100 cherry’s on top! ” Sierra said

“How much does it cost?” her mother said


“Only $35? Ok, go try it on in the fitting room.”

“Kk”. Sierra said

She tried it on and she looked like princess of Monrovia

“You look so beautiful. Kids grow up so fast”.

The mother tried not to cry but she couldn’t help it. She just busted out in tears.

“Mom, it’s ok I’m still going to be your little girl.” Sierra said

“I know.” Sierra’s mother said

“Ok let’s go.” Sierra said

They went home and they cut up the pumpkin into little bite size pieces so it could fit in the new refrigerator.

“This is what I get for starting to grow plants to grow plants. I get a big old pumpkin in my fridge” The kid’s mother said while looking in her fridge.

The next morning she woke up to cut the pumpkin piece for the pies. She brought the pumpkin pieces  onto  the counter and she put the knife up in the air and when she brought it closer they started to grow as big as an elephant in at the zoo.

The Third Floor Bedroom





One day there was a boy named Oliver. He was 9 years old and went to Cookie Oak Elementary school.

He woke up in the morning during a dream about crazy, unrealistic birds. He got ready and went to school.


But before he had gone, he left the window open. Then something crazy happened. It started when he left the window open.  A bunch of birds came flying and dashing through the open window! They were all flying around the room for about 3 hours.                                                            When they had heard the boy come back from school they all flattened themselves against the wall like stickers. When the boy came back into his room he said “Hmm. There’s something wrong in this room.”

He realized that his plant was knocked over. So he stood it back up and left to go to the living room.


When his mom came into the room to clean it up she looked at the wall and said, “Since when did we have birds on our walls?”

“Oliver!”  “Get over here!”

“Yes mom. What happened?”

“When did you get these birds on your wall?”

“Hmm I don’t remember. That’s weird”

“Did you lock the doors when you left?”


“Did you close all the windows?”

“No, come to think of it I think I left my window open”

“Well, maybe it’s because we just moved in and we never noticed it.”

“Can we paint it tomorrow?”


Later the next day they were painting the walls. While they were painting the walls all the birds flew off and out the room. Oliver and his mom was screaming and running around. When all the birds were gone, Oliver shut the window closed and they kept panting.

“What was that?!”

Oliver said, “Call animal control.”

His mom said “It won’t work. It’s all gone now.”

They painted the walls again but they were in case something crazy happens again.

After they painted it and it was dry Oliver and his mom put screening paper on the window and locked the net. Also they did that to all of their window.  So Oliver had to remember to close all the windows. The windows were never opened and it never happened again.

He heard a noise coming from the kitchen.  It sounded like someone harris pumpkinwas destroying the kitchen.  He ran into the kitchen.  The pumpkin was GLOWING.  He picks up a large KNIFE from the counter.   Every time he moved the knife closer the pumpkin glows BRIGHTER.  He cuts it!


It BLOWS up in his face and covers the floor with pumpkin pieces and pumpkin guts.  A seed from the pumpkin grew right away on the kitchen floor.  The man looked at the pumpkin. He ran at the pumpkin with his knife. He CUT the pumpkin.  The pumpkin grew back and grew bigger.  The man was AMAZED!


The man walked closer, the pumpkin grew ARMS. The man walked closer, the pumpkin grew LEGS and got taller. The pumpkin now had scary and evil face like a pumpkin on Halloween.  The man walked closer and the pumpkin scratched him! He was bleeding from his face. He hit the pumpkin 3 times in a row with the knife! The pumpkin was very angry. The pumpkin bit him hard.


“OUCH!” he screams.


The man hit the pumpkin. Seeds came out of the pumpkin and the seeds grew into evil pumpkins just like the one he just cut with the knife. Now there are 2 new pumpkins to fight. The man was shocked and FREAKED out!


He ran through the kitchen and kicked down the door.  He looked back and saw that the pumpkins were following him.  He ran to his driveway and jumped into his car.  He looked around and didn’t see the pumpkins.  The man drove to Rangely, Colorado and was never seen again!

She took it and ran as fast as she could. Finally, when she made it home she opened the door with her keys. She ran upstairs to her room, locked the door, opened the book, and began to read. As she read she started she was so addicted to the book that she fell asleep not noticing that there were plants growing out the book.

Her father and mother came home, right after she fell asleep. When she woke up she saw four golden keys left for her keys on her bed.

She got dressed in her room she brushed her teeth and washed her face. She ran down to the library. When she arrived at the library she walked in and walked to the secret door. She twisted the lock with one of the keys and it opened the door. She found the note. The note said ‘’Dear, wonder we want you to do us a favor. The favor is we want you to read the book everyday then go to the woods and look for a purple ring.

Wonder took the note and ran back home and went into the woods behind her house. She ran and ran until she found a stand. The stand had another note it said ‘’Dear wonder, you have made your destination. The plants sent you here to get the purple ring, wonder took the ring and put it on her finger, the ring said a message the message said the spring and fall is your only time find the door that says a rhyme.
