2: “Okay, we will be home around 8”, Dad said grabbing his coat. “The meeting shouldn’t be very long.” “Okay”, Emylyee and Elizabeth said turning on the television. Britt and Katelyn were upstairs playing in their rooms, so they thought. As they sat on the couch watching MTV Cribs, the twins snuck into the kitchen. “Emy and Lizzy would never let us have a snack so let’s make some chicken in the toaster oven”, Katelyn said with a grin on her face. “But we don’t know how to use the toaster”, Brittany said. “Nah, it’s okay! I’m smart, we can figure it out.”
4: Katelyn turned the knob on the toaster to “high”. “What does that word say?” Brittany wasn't sure if this was such a good idea. “I don't know but it turned on the orange light on!” The twins are too young to realize that when the orange light in the toaster means that there is a fire inside the glowing tube. As Emylyee hears giggling in the kitchen she calls ,”What are you two doing in there?” “We are getting some cookies”, Katelyn yelled. “Okay”, Elizabeth said.
6: Brittany placed a chair in front of the fridge and grabbed the ranch, ketchup, and barbecue sauce from the top shelf. “We should make some French fries to go with our chicken!” Brittany rolled her eyes at Katelyn’s lame remark and placed the chair back in front of the empty place at the table. Brittany watched as Katelyn slowly climbed the counter towards the oven. “Ummm I don’t think we should use the oven”, Brittany slowly said. As Katelyn placed the frozen fries on the oven plate, all of a sudden the oven let a big ripple of heat out. “KATELYN!” Brittany shrieked.
8: "We can't use the oven if it's going to do that", Brittany warned. "Nah! It's fine,"Katelyn said placing the French fries in the oven. Emylyee and Elizabeth were growing very suspicious anout what was really going on in there. ELizabeth grabbed the remote and put the television on mute. "What are you two doing in there?" "We are just having some milk with our cookies," Katleyn lied. "Okay," Elizabeth called backed.
10: “ Now we know how to time how long our food is in the oven!” Brittany thought, boy is he not starting to sound dumb? “I really think this is a bad idea,” Brittany said nervously. As the twins turned to go upstairs to finish their game of star wars they heard a timer. “Yay! Our chicken is done!”
12: Emylyee and Elizabeth thought she heard the word chicken cut maybe she heard cookie instead. As the scampered upstairs a loud BOOM was heard in the kitchen. Emylyee and Elizabeth jumped up and swung open the kitchen door. The oven had exploded and flames had engulfed the room. Emylyee ran up the stairs grabbed the twins, a blanket, and her cell phone and ran down the stairs. Once outside she called 911 and the fire department came. When they got there the house was a big flaming orange. Elizabeth screamed, “What in the world were you two doing in there?!” “Oh. We were just making chicken and French fries.”
14: When mom and dad got home they were freaking out.”Emylyee and Elizabeth! You were supposed to watch them! And Katelyn and Brittany, you two were supposed to stay upstairs or in the living room with your sisters! I am very disappointed with all three of you”, dad said. The twins, Emylyee , Elizabeth, and their parents had to stay with their grandparents until their house was repaired.”You guys need to learn how to listen to what you are told and to be more responsible.” THE END!!!!!!!!
