FC: my trip to Italy(:
1: About the Author.(: | Bailey Emrichhh(: she is 13 years old and wrote this book on romulus and remus.
2: Romulus and Remus is a myth that came from Italy and has been known for a long time. She had a project she had to work on and she had to do this based on where she was originated from and she decided to do it on Italy. She had always loved Italy. She loved the story on them so she decided it would be perfect! She finished her story and it was great!Hope you like it!
3: "Romulus and Remus". I heard my teacher say as I was doodling on my note-pad. I had no idea what she was talking about. The bell was about to ring and i heard her say ,"Your project is due Friday!"
4: "PROJECT?!" What project? I thought. I turned to Ava to ask and she said"On Romulus and Remus". Ohhhhh. I had'nt paid attention and I did'nt know the first thing about these people.
5: So when I got home I got on the computer to find out who these people were. I typed in Romulus and Remus. I clicked on the first one I saw. Are you kidding me? There were 5 pages of facts on these people! This might take a while I thought.
6: They were twins and they were abandoned as babies and placed in a basket and put in the river of Tiber. They were discvered by a female wolf? A wolf? The wolf nursed them and a sheperd found them and raised them.
7: When they grew up they wanted to find the city were the wolf had found them. They fought over what it should be called. Romulus was so mad that he killed his other brother! wow! That's crazy!
8: Romulus gave it the name Rome ,which was founded in 753 BC. The early people were called Latins.And it was a rich city in the early days.
9: This is the craziest thing I had ever heard! How could he kill his brother?! And raised by wolves?" Yeah right." I said.
10: I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow and all the sudden I was in a totally different place!I was....In Italy!
11: I have known that I had ancestors here but i did'nt know I was going to be here! This had to be a long time ago! Maybe i should pinch myself. Owh! That hurt!" What do i do?" I thought. This would be a great time to work on my project!
12: I wondered around the town and there was nothing. Maybe i should ask someone. I turned a corner in the market place and talked to a street vendor selling bread. Maybe they'll know.
13: I glanced to see if anyone was there.I spoke to the man making the bread. "Can you tell me where I can find stuff on Romulus and Remus"? "Ummmm...he hesitated. Hold on".
14: He came from making the bread. "Why do you need this"? He asked. Well,I have a project and I need to know about them in order to do the project. Go to Main Street and take a right;there will be a library. You should find what your looking for there. OK! Thank-you!
15: I walked down an ally and saw something. It looked almost like a book? I blew it of and the title was the story of Romulus and Remus! Perfect! Now I just need to get outta this place!
16: I went back to were I came from and nothing happened? I opened the book and all the sudden I was in a different place. Oh not again! It was a dark cave! Where am I?"HELLOOOO"? My voice echoed and I remembered they were kept by a female wolf I was very careful as I walked a little bit farther and I saw something!It was the wolf!
17: "It's OK I'm not going to hurt you!" I started rubbing and i saw them! They were so tiny!
18: It was turining dark so I had to sleep on the cold damp ground! The next day I saw a man coming up to the cave. What was I supposed to do? I hid and he took the babies! He said "Oh my! Someone has abandoned you!" I will take care of you know!"
19: I had fast forwarded to when they got older and they were traveling to find the land were they were taken care of by the wolf.
20: I saw the anger in Romulus' eyes and I was scared! As he walked over to Remus I covered my eyes and when I opened them Remulus was....DEAD! Oh my gosh! I was so scared!
21: I heard him say he was going to name it Rome. All of the sudden I heard someone say "Bailey ,Bailey! It's time for school!
22: What? It was a dream? "Mom, Mom!" I said as I ran out of the room. "You'll never believe what happened!" I was in Italy and Romulus and Remus and the magic book and they were kept by a wolf!
23: Uhhhh...Bailey are you sure your ok? I thought to myself i guess it is true you have to see it to believe it. Well,I found out what i needed to know! And when i got to school i was so excited i could'nt wait to show my project!
24: When I got in class I sat down and raised my hand to go first! After my project everyone loved it! I will always remember this!(: | HAPPINESS LIVES IN THE HEARTS THAT LOVE
