One Wrong Turn
Once upon a time there was a small boy named Austin. He was very unathletic so he tried to get better at running. He was jogging through the park and wanted to go to the forbidden forest. Although it was forbidden, he ventured ahead. Into the forest little Austin ran.
Austin kept running and took many turns and went into places he had never seen before. He ﬁnally realized he was lost. Little Austin was disappointed. He saw an old lady walking along the same road as him. Austin shouted, HEY!!! The old lady turned.
“What little boy?” the old lady cackled. Little Austin, a little frightened asked which way was the park. The old lady pointed a scrawny ﬁnger at the pitch black road. Little Austin said thank you and was oﬀ on his adventure. Little did he know what surprises awaited him….
Now little Austin was so happy to think about going home. So he ran as fast as he could. After awhile he got tired. He stopped and rested on a big tree. He thought he could hear someone breathing so he listened closely. Yes it was deﬁnitely breathing. Little Austin shocked by the discovery listened harder and BAM!!! The tree he was resting on moved, it wasn’t a tree, but a giant!!!
Oﬀ little Austin ran for his life. Faster and faster. He outran the giant. He found the perfect hiding spot. A hole. The giant would never look there he thought.
As he jumped in the hole some wildlife came out of the forest. Even a fox. Scared he got deeper into the hole. When he noticed he wasn’t alone. Out he jumps, behind him a giant mole!
Faster and faster ran little Austin. He sprinted like never before! He had almost lost the mole and the giant when he started to recognize the park again.
Yes he remembers the park. Its right in front of him. Hes running as fast as he can but cant get to it fast enough. He’s so close. And yes hes made it!
Oﬀ he ran he couldn’t wait to be home. He dodged the puppy he usually would pet. He just wanted to see his mommy. Oﬀ he ran almost to the house.
Up he ran to his mommy so glad to be home! He gave her a huge hug with a huge smile on his face. Austin was so happy to be home!
