Jake was a Labrador. When we got him from the animal shelter downtown ,he was sick and had lice and a nasty rash. After a while Jake got better. The vet said he was just a year old. Jake and I would play all the time. One day Jake was missing. I checked the park, the forest and our field. I finally found him by the river sitting down and watching it flow. I called for Jake but he didn’t move. I dragged him back home and he didn’t do anything. He just sat on the ground looking back at the river. I wonder what he saw that frightened him so much.
It was Monday morning again, start of the week. The sun was in the sky. I got dressed and then skedaddled downstairs to eat my breakfast as I was running a bit late. Then the worst thing that could happen happened. There was a raccoon in my house, trying to get some food out of the cupboard.
When I saw it, I got a box and put it over it and then I hopped on a chair as I was still kind of scared. After a few minutes I picked up the box and brought it outside. I lifted the lid of the box and he jumped out of the box and landed on some leaves.
It was late afternoon. The midsummer sun was beating hard down on my chest and there was no sign of a cloud in the sky. I rushed down the footpath heading to our new house. I’d just got a message that the boxes had been delivered. I arrived at the house and it didn’t look at all like the photo. It was a rundown old house that needed more than a lick of paint. I opened the door to the house and it creaked so loud the neighbour gave out. I looked into the house and spotted a raccoon running upstairs. I ran upstairs and I didn’t leave a leaf unturned searching for the raccoon that I finally found asleep in a box.
The sky was so dark you could barely see anything and clouds were covering the moon. I was in my kitchen making myself tea.I sat down on a chair to drink it. Suddenly, I heard a noise in my garden. I decided to go and check it out so I grabbed a flashlight. A leaf fell in front of me. I saw a box turned over on its side and something in it. When I got closer I heard a hissing sound. I shone the flashlight into the box and I was so relieved when I saw that it was just a racoon.
I was a normal boy on a normal street on a normal day when all of a sudden everything changed. I went to tie my shoe lace when a box dropped from the sky. I could see a racoon inside. It hopped out of the box chewing a leaf. The next day, I was walking on the same street at the same time when it came flying from the sky in a chair. It landed perfectly in front of me and ran. The next day it was plummeting from the sky on its own. I knew I had to save it. I dived forward…
