Attack of the Onomatopoeias!
Once upon a time there was a place called Simile-ville. It was a peaceful place. In Winter it was as cold as a freezer. In Spring it was as beautiful as cherry blossoms! In Summer, ‘twas as hot as a boiler! And in Fall it was as orange as a tangerine! Until one day the onomatopoeias attacked! The inhabitants, the smilers, were unarmed and untrained for battle and lost the first fight.
Attack of the Onomatopoeias!
Chapter 2: Defence
The next day, some traders came and thought, “Oh no!” These guys are under siege! We know some people who might help!” So the men went and found their friends who were experienced fighters and the smilers and the traders joined forces. The End

Once in an orphanage in 1935, there were many orphans. The two best friends, Ellie and Leah went to play outside. Ellie and Leah had a big imagination. That day Ellie and Leah were pretending to look for lost treasure. Ellie started digging until her shovel hit something. “Do you think we found real treasure?” said Leah. Ellie cleared of the dirt from the thing. “Mia Blake, 1873 - 1885” Ellie said. “Thats weird…” Leah said. It was time for bed so Leah and Ellie went back inside. In the middle of the night Ellie and Leah woke up to tapping on the window. The saw a girl, a little older than them. “My name is Mia Blake. I died in this orphanage 50 years ago in a fire. Now it is all your turn!” The girl disappeared and a fire started “Everyone wake up! FIRE!” Everyone ran out of the orphanage in time. The girls and all the other orphans were safe but Leah and Ellie were cursed forever.

Once I wanted to print a coloring sheet out on the computer. So I went to ask my Dad and he said “yes.” So I went to the computer and I picked a page, chose a size and pressed print. The printer made some weird noises and started shooting out paper! After shooting 20 pieces out I was scared. Some paper it printed the sheet and it was good. Two days later I went to print another image and it did the exact same thing again – except it shot out more. Me and my Dad are still trying to figure out what is wrong with it so I do not have any answers right now so THE END.

It was a cold night. Rained poured puddles and sleet slid off ceilings from yesterday. I wonder with a sad sorrow sulking voice, “Do igloos imitate iguanas or impress ice?” I wandered off in my mind, sad as a shrew on a Sunday with no sunflower seeds. I was wearing a bashful baby blue, crying operas of sad body language. Tears fumbled down my posters of people’s postured and pasteurized face. All left was gloom, sadder than a dog caught destroying and damaging D-Rose sneakers. Captain Crunch was Captain Crud. Cocoa Puffs were Blank Puffs. And Fruit Loops was Gloom Rings. My piano weeped and guitar wined and trombone whimpered. I was a sad moon, wanting to shine but no sun reflection to do so. Drowned in doom and gloom, no life in my room, stale hay on my broom, sad depressed mushrooms, string and yarn too bummed to be loomed. Soon, the daylight and flowers began to bloom. My piano sang, my guitar talked soothingly, and my trombone whistled. The moon peeked from the sky, & the sun brought it out. Life listened and learned, and lived lively for life in my room. Shame shimmed on. The End.
