One morning close to Mount Mansfield Forest there was a turtle trying to cross the road. The thing was it was as hot as the Mojave desert. The road was very busy normally and was especially busy in the mornings. So the turtle everyday slowly tries to cross but always fails. He wanted to cross because on the other side was his home and a small pond. He was also very thirsty. So he tried to cross one last time. He had started to crawl across when all the sudden he heard a giant tractor coming. So quickly he crawled to the center of the road and at the last second the tractor came by and the turtle quickly hid in his shell and then the tractor barely touched his shell, he's safe and only has to cross on lane when all the sudden a speeding car comes zooming by and hits a sign that goes flying and hits the ground next to the turtle. Frightened he scury's to the middle of the next lane. He notices hes in the middle and tries to get to the other side as quickly as he can, and then a semi truck comes flying by...... On the other side, in his shell he waits with his eyes closed. He peeks his head out opens his eyes and thankfully walks back to his home, safely and carefully.
