FC: Gingerlocks and the Three Bears By Cole Lederhandler
1: Once upon a time---------- No need for once upon a time, for this is a modern-day story. The Bear family went out for their annual food hunt, so they were gone from their house. It takes them two days to gather food. It was Friday at Sandy Run Middle School, when Gingerlocks' teacher, Mr.Isacs, annouced their class field trip to the forest. Gingerlocks was nervous because she had no forest skill. Her best friend, Matt Jacupson, leaned over to her and gave her a piece of paper. "Whats this?" Gingerlocks asked. "Go to this house. They will teach you woodcraft for our trip." he commanded. "Ok. If you say so." she replied.
2: The next morning was Saturday. She quietly skipped past the Jonsons' house, and the other houses on her block, until finally, she came upon the Bear residence. She rang the door bell. DING DONG! Then, she knocked on the door fairly loud. KNOCK KNOCK! CREEEK! The door opened. Gingerlocks loved snooping, it was her favorite thing to do. So she went in. | She had forgotten to eat breakfast, so she went in the kitchen. She went up to the first bowl on the kitchen counter. It was filled with original oatmeal, which was way too hot. She passed it, and went to the next. It was medium sized bowl with apple cinnamon oatmeal, which was way too cold. She passed that bowl too, and went on to the last bowl. It was filled with maple sugar oatmeal and was the perfect tempurature. She quickly scarfed it down and left the bowl on the counter.
3: After eating the delicious oatmeal, she became very tired. She went upstairs to find a bed. The first bed was bed was way too high up! She could barely climb on. The second bed was way too small; she wouldnt fit on it. Finally, the third bed fit her perfectly and she fell asleep.
4: She woke up when she heard the front door open. "Oh! The Bears! They're Home!" Gingerlocks hummed under her breath. She decided to come clean, hoping that they will give her mercy and accept her apology. She ran down the stairs, only to see the Bears sitting on their chairs, as if waiting for her! "Im so sorry I'm here! My friend told me to come here and......" "We know why you are here, Gingerlocks." Papa Bear said. "You're here because you need help on your survival skills, isnt that right?" Mama Bear asked. "Yes. That's correct. Can you help me?" Gingerlocks asked. "Of course we can!" Baby Bear exclaimed.
5: They taught her how to raise a tent, to always have bug repellent on, to wear sneakers, and lots of other helpful information. "Thank you so much! Im going to pack. Thanks again!" Gingerlocks said. "You're very welcome dear!" Mama Bear said as Gingerlocks ran out the door. Her forest trip went fabulously and she used all the skills the Bears had tought her on that day. And they all lived happily ever after.
