A Boy, A Pig, and A Tomb by Jonathan Sonnenfeld
“Checo wake up, we’ve landed” said Checo`s father “finally its been so long since we’ve left Russia” said checo very excitedly. while Checo wondered what he would do when he got off the plane, his pet pig Hamuel went into a squeal fit. He decided that after he got to the hotel he would take hamuel on a hike in the desert.
When he gets to the hotel he puts on running clothes and shoes and they set out for their run. While they were running in the desert hamuel runs away from Checo and Checo chases him. Hamuel found a cave, and he goes deeper, with Checo chasing him. The cave starts to look manmade. They both stop and look around. “It looks like a tomb,” exclaimed Checo.
As they were going deeper into the cave/tomb it starts looking more and more man made. “This is definitely a tomb right hamuel,” said Checo “oink oink oink” said Hamuel “I’m going to take that as a yes” said Checo. They see a light but its not daylight. “Is that gold?” exclaimed Checo.
“ Wow look at all this gold oh look in the center there’s a golden face mask” screamed Checo. “Squeeeeeeeeel squeeeeeeel” squealed Hamuel. It takes a very long time for them to get to the center of the treasure room because the gold was very hard to move. Checo just stares at the mask for a while in shock.
“Lets take it home” asked Checo even though his pig couldn’t talk and even if it did he would have taken it. When Checo grabbed the facemask the cave started to shake. So they ran back the way they came.
They reached a fork in the tunnel and did not know what way to go. They decided to try far right tunnel. They kept running until CRASH the tunnel above them caved in. They climbed up the debris to the tunnel above them and ran into a chamber.
The chamber walls have writing all over them. “Here rests our holy king in this royal tomb of Ur,” read Checo. I know where we are,” said Checo. Were in the royal tombs of Ur we learned about this place in school it was built by the ancient Babylonians for their king” said Checo.
The room started rumbling. Crash the wall came down to reveal sunlight. Hamuel started out but then realized that checo was not behind him “Hamuel help” screamed Checo. Checo’s leg was under some debris. Hamuel pulled checo out. When they got out they just sat there eventually help came. They said they had been gone for 2 days. When they got back to the hotel they packed up and left. The end.
