The Christmas Secret pt. 2 “Ahhhh!” screamed Oran. Finally, they landed in a field of snow. “Ouch,” said Kameron. “Where are we anyway?” said Oran. “Oh my gosh, said Kameron, we’re in the North Pole.” “Which means… Santa!!!” screamed the duo, as they went to the workshop. On the way Oran saw an elf of stone, something seemed wrong. Then when they got there they saw that Santa had been turned to stone!!! “Who could have done this?” said Kameron. “That’s who!” said Oran. He pointed to an elf turning the other elf to stone. “Oh no, said Kameron, he saw us, run!!!!” While we were running Oran jumped in front of me and got turned to stone. “No!!!!!!” said Kameron. Then his hands started to glow and he blasted the elf into ashes. Then everybody turned back to normal. Santa thanked us for saving him then he gave us a box. “What is this for?” said Oran. “Open it and see,” said Santa. And they were back at Kameron’s house in a flash. This was the best Christmas ever! By Kameron Goree (4th Grade)
