” Today is my birthday! ” exclaimed Sally as she drew the curtains of her little room to let the cool morning sun shine through. Sally got dressed for the day and went into the kitchen to start writing a grocery list for the special dinner she would make herself. Her house was small, but it was big enough to invite a few people over for a small party. Birds chirped and bees hummed outside as Sally’s footsteps echoed throughout the her lonely, empty house while she walked into her dark kitchen. Her kitchen started getting too dark, so she drew the curtains, but as she did she noticed a strange, gray car parked in front of her house. The car’s windows were tinted, so she couldn’t see who was the driver. ” Probably just a neighbor’s friend, ” she said aloud as she put on her jacket and headed for the door.
As she stepped outside the gray car’s driver started the engine and puled up next to Sally’s car. She got into her car and started driving towards the market. The gray car kept following her, every turn she made, it made and every lane she switched to, the gray car switched too. Pretty soon Sally was going fifty miles over the speed limit, but at least she had lost the gray car. I lost him, Sally thought to herself, until she turned the corner and saw the gray car waiting for her. All of the color drained from her face as she hurried up and passed the strange car.
Sally was constantly glancing at the clock watching every miserable minute go by. Finally, she was at the market and the driver got out with a big cage. The driver was wearing a pitch black ski mask as he opened the cage five brown squirrels ran out of the cage. ” Surprise! ” he yelled and the squirrels attacked Sally. ” Owww!!!! ” Sally screamed in pain as the squirrels pulled her hair, clawed at her face, and bit her.
” Stop! ” the masked-man yelled and immediatley all of the squirrels stopped. They all ran back into the cage and the masked-man put them back into his car. Bleeding and hurt, Sally ran back into the market. ” Wait! ” the masked-man called out as he ran after Sally.
Once they entered the cold market, the smell of freshly baked bread filled the air. Footsteps running all around could be heard like they were right next to you. The shiny, white floor squeaked in pain each time it was stepped on, which made it easier for the masked-man to find Sally. Nicole , the only cashier there, seen Sally and the masked-man run in the market. Nicole got a bag full of green powder and she followed them close by. Sally ran through every aisle, but the masked-man still followed and so did Nicole. Soon Sally was running out of breath and she had to stop, luckily she was in aisle 5, so right when the masked-man was in front of her, she grabbed a 2-Liter soda and hit him in the head with it.
” Owwwwww!! ” he yelled, but he got back up and this time he grabbed Sally by both of her arms. He reached into his pocket and was pulling out something shiny until………. BOOM!! Nicole shot the green powder everywhere. In less than a minute all of the objects in the market were alive.Sodas, candies, steaks, ranch, and even milk was talking.
” Attack “!! Nicole shouted as sodas and cookies leaped from the shelves and started hitting the masked-man. Soon he was under a big pile of food and he could not get up.
” Stop “, I’m your friend!!! ” the masked-man called out desperately. Nicole got some rope out of the supply closet and tied up the man. Sally watched amazed by how quick Nicole could tie a knot with such a long rope.
” 911, this is Sally Brown at the local market, we caught some man and we want you to take hm to jail. ” “We’ll be right there, ” the operator said. In five minutes two police cars pulled up to the market and ran inside. ” Hello, ” the cops called out. ” Over here, ” Sally called back. The two officers ran down and found two girls standing around a man with a mask tied up. ” First of all, let’s see who’s the man beneath the mask. ”
Slowly they pulled off the ski mask and revealed………… ” Joseph?! ” Sally asked surprised, yet puzzled. ” You know him? ” Nicole and the policemen asked. ” Yes, ” Sally said, ” We haven’t seen each other in five years, ” Sally explained to the them, and told them how they became friends.
” Surprise Sally, ” Joseph said weakly to her and he reached into his pocket and pulled out a sparkling, gold necklace. ” Awwww!” all of the food sang. Nicole pulled out another bag and poof! Red powder went everywhere and all of the food was back to just being a plain object. The clean, white floor was now covered in crushed chocolate chip cookies and soda that leaked everywhere. It was sticky and so was the masked-man.
” You are all welcome to my house for my party tonight, ” Sally told them with a big smile. ” Sure, ” everyone said and they all went to her house for the party. By the time they got to Sally’s house, it was 9:00 p.m. , but they did not care because they all had a great time.
Now Sally and Joseph are neighbors.[They live right next to each other.] As for Nicole, her and Sally are best friends now, they do everything together and Nicole quit her job to become a police woman with the other cops.
