Because of Kaitlyn
Sophia Yan October 26 2015
I fell deeper and deeper as darkness surrounded me. I couldn’t breathe…
It all happened on a gorgeous, warm, sunny day in Japan. I immediately springed out of bed and drawn the curtains apart, so the sun could shine in. Then, I hopped onto Kaitlyn’s bed and screamed,
“HI KAITLYN!” in her face.
“I can’t wait! So excited!” I yelled doing my happy dance around the room.
“Get up now!” I ordered, as I changed into my favorite waterproof clothes.
“What time is it?” Kaitlyn asked.
“7:00am,” I answered. She groaned.
“Let me sleep, ok?”
“We’re going fishing like in 3 hours,”
“Please! I want to play Tic Tac Toe with you,” I begged her
“Go away you annoying brat, I’m trying to sleep,” she added as she pulled the covers over her head.
I blinked back my tears furiously as I slowly walked back to my bed. I put on my pajamas on top of my waterproof clothes and pulled the covers over my head too.
“It’s 9:04,” Kaitlyn informed.
I didn’t realize how tired I was. Mainly because I was too eager to go fishing! I really did sleep a long time. Kaitlyn was dressed up in her blue waterproof clothes. She had her dark brown hair done in messy braids. My parents and her parents met us downstairs and we had breakfast. After breakfast, we took our fishing supplies, sun cream, hats, (Kaitlyn’s mom packed cookies) and headed to the bus stop. Once we got off the bus, dad rented an ancient like boat and we went fishing!
Kaitlyn’s dad taught us how to fish. I eventually got really bored and climbed to the side of the boat watching fish pass by. Kaitlyn amazingly was not bored. She never gave up!
“Look at the fish!” I gushed, pointing at a dead fish.
“It must have had a great old life because it is smiling!” I found a stick floating in the middle of the lake, and started poking the fish with it. I leaned closer to see it.
“I CAUGHT A FISH!” Kaitlyn yelled. I turned around to see, but her arm hit my face, then suddenly there was a huge SPLASH! I couldn’t breathe… I tried to scream but I choked.
I opened my sore eyes and saw the dead fish above me. What’s going on? I wondered. What just happened? I felt confused. I realized I fell into the water. Without thinking about anything else, I quickly swam up to the shadow of a boat. “Are you ok sweetie?” mom asked as she draped my towel around me. “I’m fine, thanks. But what happened?” I asked shuddering.
“Um,” Kaitlyn started nervously, “I think I pushed you into the water.” “WHAT?”
“By accident,” Kaitlyn stammered.
“I’m really sorry! I got really excited and proud, I went a little crazy and waved my arms around, air punched, jump-“,
“It’s ok,” I said gloomily, interrupting her. I was proud but also kind of jealous. Kaitlyn reached into her bag and grabbed a cookie.
“Want some?” Kaitlyn asked breaking the cookie in half.
“Sure, thanks!” I responded cheerfully.
As we were munching the yummy chocolate chip cookies, I said
“Next time, if you did something that made you really proud, please don’t go crazy!” We both laughed.
