It all started Monday February 9th 2015 a space ship landed in St. Augustine Florida at Palencia. There was a crash and a bang what could it be the police came and the fire fighters came and they brought a ladder and the walked up the ladder on to the roof. Wow said the police I was not inspecting and cube a black painted cube. He tossed the cube off of the roof. The cube was black and small or big it was a normal size and was not soft and three sides where flat and the other side was bumpy and it felt like clay or rubber. What is it I said yay said my friend mia. Well it does not look like it could hurt anyone so the police putt it in the trash. School is over called the teacher pack up and go to where you need to be to go home. I rushed towards the back of the school where the giant trash bin was and pulled out the black cube you will be safe with me I promise. So I took the cube home and stuck it in my room and shut the door. Great some peace and quiet. The whole night the cube and I talked well I was the one talking the cube was the one listing. Good night I said to the cube. But that cube was not ready to go to bed there was a rumble and bang and a crash. Oh no here it goes again what is the cube doing. Are you hungry? Do you need a drink? What do you want? The cube was shaking. Ha you need to go to the bathroom. Why did you not say so? The cube was still shaking are you okay do you need a doctor do you need to go to the hospital tell me what you need. Then the cube stopped shaking and just sat there. Are you okay? The cube was silent. I went over to the cube and picked it up the cube started shaking and so I dropped it and a bunch of goo came out. The goo was a greenish blue but when you looked at it from the right it was a brownish yellow and it felt like water in flour. But then when I looked at the broken cube I saw a donkey a small baby donkey came out of the black cube what a donkey I was not thinking a donkey would be in the cube but why did the donkey fall out of the sky and on to my schools roof. Are you from mars or the moon did NASA leave you on the moon and you got stuck in a black cube. The small donkey was shaking. Ho no are you hurt do you need water do you need a doctor or some food the donkey stopped shaking you want food. The donkey shook its head yes. Okay you stay here and I will get an apple and carrots for you don’t move an inch or don’t leave the room. I said. So I ran down stairs and bumped right into my mom. Sorry I am so sorry. That is okay my mom said. Okay I am just getting a snack. Well then scurry along. Hey ha, ho no my donkey I told him to be quit up there but he or she did not listen and now I am paying the price of a donkey in my room. Hey ha. I ran upstairs and ran into my room be quit my mom is still home. Hey ha. Owe here I got you the carrots and three apples. Hey ha. Please be quite the apples and carrots are yours to eat and my mom is about to go to work and so I need you to be quite for the next fifteen minutes so my mom won’t find out that there is a donkey in my room eating apples and carrots. There was silent. Thank you now just be quite for fifteen minutes so my mom can leave and won’t find out that there was a donkey in my room wall she was gone. There was a nether silence. Okay I am going to get my friend she is a scientist and will help me understand why you were in that cube and what you are. So I ran out the door to my room and out the door to my house and down the street to my friend’s house. Ding dong I rang the doorbell and waited for mia to answer the door. The door opened and I saw Mrs. Lilly Mia’s baby sitter. Hello what do you need? Um is mia home today? Yes she is at molly’s house her house is a little down the road when you get to river lane turn left on Washington lane and when you see white creek the park go strata throe the park to the other opening and you will see and green house that is molly’s house. Thanks. I ran home and got my bike out of the drive way and followed the streets to river lane then I turned left at Washington lane and went to white creek the park and went throe the trail the park was beautiful there was ponds with parks and fields with pretty woods it was quite but pretty I loved the woods when I was out of the woods I saw a greenhouse that was molly’s house yes I made it I am here at least. I parked my dike in the drive was and ran up to the front door. Ding dong. A tall lady with very long brown hair and a pair of jeans on with a yoga shirt on answered the door. Who are you? She said. I am one of molly’s friends and I was told she was here. Yes molly and mia are inside there in molly’s room doing kid thing in her room can go upstairs if you go upstairs and take a left you will see an pink door on your right that is molly’s bathroom and if you go throe the bathroom and then you will see a hall way go to your left and you will see a blue door that is molly’s room and if she is not in her room go throe the hall way and you will see rainbow door that is the playroom. Thanks. I ran along following every step that she said go throe this hall way and then go throe that hall way and then go throe the bathroom and you will see the room and if you don’t see them that room you will see them in the rainbow room that is the play room I was there but they were not in the room so I followed the next rules to the playroom I did not see them in the playroom ether. Um miss they are not in the playroom or in molly’s room. Well then if you go back throe the bathroom and go right down the hall go throe the basket ball room to the giant playroom. I followed every step she said I was not at home I was at someone else’s house. I saw the giant playroom molly and mia was playing with a small Ginny pig. Mia I really need you at my house the cube I took it home and it cracked. What do you mean it cracked well when a chicken comes out of its egg that’s what I mean? Okay molly gets our bikes out of the back shed I will wait out front for you. She snapped. It’s not my fault I had to help the space egg rock thing it may have been hurt that is why I took it home to save it. Well now I have to deal with it. Said mia. Look when I took it home it was shaking so I helped it but then it cracked open and goo came out gorse goo but I can’t even tell you what it looked like. Well then let’s get going to your house. Yay lets go said molly. Okay follow me to my house. I went throe the wood and throe all of the streets the sun was going down. Come on I have to get home to save the little guy. When we got to my house we all ran inside and upstairs and into my room. Hey ha. A donkey yelled mia what is a donkey doing in your room and what is this slime? It is a long story the space rock cracked and this goo came out so did this donkey thing. Well what do you want me to-do about goo to you want me to clean your room? No I want you to help me help this donkey to get where it needs to be. Okay. Mia started walking the donkey throe my room. Well the donkey walks fine and did you feed it anything. Yes I gave it a carrot and an apple and the donkey ate it. So I guess it eats fine so now we have to find out where its home is. Hey ha hey ha. Be quite I am thinking. Hey ha hey ha. Wait what you say. Hey ha hey ha. Wait the donkey wants to go back in to space to its home planet. Well what is its home planet? Well let me check my space-time book. She opened a small note book that said SPACE-TIME here the lost planet of life it is called PRACE. What dose prace mean. Well it is a planet of life some times when earth is full of animals humans send animals to prace so we can have more space. But are animals okay up in prace. Well yes prace is just like earth grass and rivers with clouds and air so yay earth is just like prace. Well we have to find a way to get up to prace with this donkey. I have a good idea my uncle works at a space sinter like a mile away so tell your mom we are going to molly’s house. Hey mom I am going to my friend’s house down the street. Okay have fun. I ran outside and grabbed my bike and road down the street to NASA space station and ran inside with the donkey. This donkey is from prace the planet of life and it needs to go home help the poor thing. Okay load the animal into space ship number 124 prace lost life. We brought the donkey to the space ship. I love you I wisped in the donkeys with a little kiss. The donkey gave a little hey ha. And liked my face. Good bye I will miss you so much so, so much. Good bye and then the space ship gone it was like 5 seconds I saw him and then he was gone. We all watched the space ship go up then all we could see was a small bright space ship moving throe the sky the necked day a small book came in the mail from prace and if you want to read the book from prace you just read it. Days latter this guy named Logan wrote a letter to me and mia saying thanks for helping the donkey and he also said that the donkey was safe and happy to see all the other animals and everyone was happy safe all because of the donkey and me. THE END.
