Brianna's Greatest Adventure

I'm not the only writer in my family. My niece Brianna loves to write, too. Here's her terrific short story. I love it because it's full of advenure and has great images.
The Greatest Adventure
By Brianna McGarry
One day, I was walking in the woods, and I noticed I was lost. It was getting dark, and I didn't know my way home. I heard noises, but I didn't know what they were.

Then it started to rain gently then harder and harder until it rained like a herd of animals coming closer and closer. I ran as fast as I could until I came to a cave. I walked into the cave, and it was pitch black inside. It was still raining very, very hard. When I approached inside the cave, everything was absolutely quiet.

I saw some leaves and had a fantastic idea, I would make a bed out of the leaves. When I was finished, I was so tired that I fell to the ground on the leaves and luckily fell asleep. The next day, I went outside. Everything was completely wet, including me. It was so, so foggy that it was like staring at Casper the friendly ghost.

I was thinking about sitting by the fireplace at home with my PJs on and drinking some warm hot chocolate.

Then suddenly, I heard something. It sounded like my sister. I ran where the voice was, and I could see my house. I ran as fast as I could and when I got there, I jumped into my sister’s arms. My sister Cara said, "Where have you been all this time?"

I said, "I was lost in the woods and I had to make my own bed in a cave. I'm so glad you called me."

Cara said, "Wow! That sounds like a great and scary adventure.”

I said, "It was!"

Then, I went into the house, and guess what? I sat by the fireplace, with my PJs on, and drank some hot chocolate.
