The Scary Scorpion!!!

By: Aeriel S.
Arizona, Age 9

A Scorpion!!! “What are we going to do?”
Let’s get a shoe!” My mom said, “Oh, that’s a good idea.
I wanted to get rid of that thing I thought that maybe we should get a bowl too?
My Mom, brother, and I were getting ready to attack!


My mom grabbed the shoe and smacked it on the wall.
Then my brother caught the scorpion in the bowl.
I was AMAZED how brave my mom and brother were.


We had caught a baby scorpion. I know that baby scorpions are more poisonous than larger
scorpions.

I hope I never see that again!
