Adeline and the Three Alligators

By: Caleb and Chelsea D.
Louisiana, Age 13

One day a little girl named Adeline was walking through the marshy swamps. She was enjoying the beautiful weather. Her friend Peter the Pelican was with her. They walked for a while, then they came upon an old shack on the banks of the marshes. They found boiled crawfish on the table ready to eat. She tasted the first one and it was to hot, she tasted the second one and it was to cold, then she tasted the third one and it was just right. Then she went up the stairs and found three beds. She tested the first one and it was too firm, she tested the second one and it was too soft, then she tested the third one and it was just right. Then she decided it was time to go home and when she walked out the door there were three alligators and they asked her who she was. The third one just stared at her. Then the three alligators started to get closer to her. She got scared. She started screaming to see if anyone was out there. Then she ran through the house, out the window, she got Peter the Pelican and ran home.
Adeline never went back to that old shack again! THE END!
