FC: The Time Machine
1: I was excited we moved into a new house now I could finally have a sleep over since we were done unpacking..... When my friend Camile came over and, it was time to sleep we couldn't, because we were laughing and telling secrets. I told her my Dad was making a secret invention, then she dared me to go see it. I said yes because I love to explore new places and it was in the attic which is where I haven't been yet.
2: We crept through the house to the attic(which was creepy). Then I saw it. It was a box with the number 2500,the name of our city, a button and, a weird sentence, where wheels fly. We were both really confused, then Camile pressed the button. The second she did we were standing in a completely different place, surrounded by silver buildings and flying cars. Then a gold newspaper flew by us and Camile picked it up and read “Monday, July, 2, 2500??”
3: “ I have a feeling that was a time machine.” “Me to.” “ This is probably our city in 2500..... Look my house is gone.” “This is amazing!!!! You must have a really smart Dad!” “ Yeah I can't wait to tell him!” “ Think of all the stuff we can do before anyone else!.” “ It will be fun, but how will we get home?” “With the time mach...............” I stuttered “ Camile it's gone!!!”
4: “What did you do with it?” “It was in my hand now it’s gone!” “It couldn't have gone far lets find it.” We looked every around us on the silver street.... no luck. So we had to start to look by buildings. We checked the coffee shop with robot workers, around people's homes, a school and finally the floating mall.Still.... no luck with it.

5: Then we started to get really hungry so we tried to look for a food court. Then we saw one. And surprisingly McDonalds was still there! Then I heard Camile yell “Hey I know that restaurant, I hope the except money from the past.” When we went to order we just gave the man a loonie because the man said it was an antique , dates back 500 years, and worth a fortune!
6: When we sat down to eat I asked Camile “What else was on the time machine exactly?” “There was that weird sentence” “Oh yeah what did it say?” “ Now I remember! It was... where wheels fly” “ That could be a clue to where the time machine is hidden.” “ Yeah!! But... What could it mean??”
7: Then we saw someone fly by on a skateboard but the wheels were hovering off of the ground. At the exact same time Camile and I yelled “ It’s at a skate park!!!” After we finished eating we ran outside of the mall then we saw something that looked like a skate park down the street. We sprinted down there.
8: When we got to the skate park the first thing we did was split up to look for it. It would be hard to find since it was silver but after only 10 minutes, .I yelled “It's over here”. Camile ran to me then grabbed the time machine set it back to our date. And said “I hope this works” .
9: She pressed the button then we were standing in my attic like nothing has happened. “I’m glad that's over next time dad has an invention I’m not going to try it” “good idea...I can wait for the future.” “ promise not to tell anyone” “promise” Camile said.
