A Flash of Light WRITTEN AND ILLUSTRATED BY Maggie Rodriguez

Once there lived a girl named Melissa. She looked out her window and saw a flash of light.

The next day she went to see what it was. It was a...

STAR!!!! It fell from outer space. “Hi, I’m a star I fell from outer space”, said the Star. “Then I’Il name you Spark”, Melissa said happily.

Together they walked home. Melissa didn’t bother holding his hand. It would be very very hot.

They crept in the house, hoping no one would notice Spark. Spark told Melissa that she could wish for anything she ever wanted. Suddenly a fire breathing dragon appeared.

She was having so much fun she never noticed that her friend was coming over this afternoon. DING-DONG!! As quick as possible she threw Spark in the fire place.

After that Melissa couldn’t find her dragon. 5 minutes later he came back with a tree in his mouth. He wanted to play fetch.

That night, there was another flash of light. It was Spark’s mother and she did not look happy.

In the night they gathered to watch Spark go to space. “Bye Spark”, Shouted Melissa. “Now what I’m I going to do with this dragon”, said Melissa, pointing at the dragon.
