YWP Contest WEEK 19 Wishes. You have three wishes and they will all come true in sequence — tomorrow, and on your 25th and 50th birthdays. What do you wish for?
My first wish would be to have a dog or two because I really like dogs. They are super cute and fun to play with. If I could have a dog it would probably be a golden retriever mixed with a yellow lab so I could hunt with him as my duck dog. I have grown up with our family dog Bo. He was a great duck dog and also likes to retrieve geese for my Dad and brother Sam. Bo is 10 years old now and is retired because he is too old to hunt. Dogs make me feel safe and I love to cuddle with them.
YWP: Week #3 | Clearing “Come on you’re going to have a spectacular time!” Mom said.
“But I love the big city. I don’t want to have leave to go to the country for a week!” I explained.
“Well I already stated that you would go! So stop complaining and try to make the most out of the experience. You don’t get to see such open land that often.” “I guess that you are right.” I said. “Good, now they should be here soon to pick you up, so wait at the front door please.” My mother says.
I awake feeling well rested as my alarm sounds, playing the introduction to Dolly Parton’s Jolene. I peek over the wood on my loft bed to see my dog snuggled up in his bed. “Morning Baxter!” I cooed as if he were to understand me.
I look at the date. Friday, October Eleventh. That would mean we have to run the mile today. I walk down the steps onto my clean room. The air is crisp, and when I look outside, the woods in my backyard have turned to various beautiful colors, yellow, orange, and one of my favourite trees’ leaves turned pink.
As I’m getting ready for school. I hear the doorbell ring. It was my friend Mary. We usually either bike or take the bus together. Today was Monday, so we take the bus. “You ready to go?” Mary asks inviting herself in.
