FC: The Turtle Tale

2: One day in March, my mom and I were going to the dollar store. That's where I first saw them - the perfect pet . . . a turtle! Two turtles were twice as cute!
3: Each container held two turtles. The turtles were so little. They were about two inches long.
4: "Mom, Mom, Mom, can I have those turtles please, please, please?" I begged. "How about excuse me?" my mom said.
5: "Excuse me Mom, Mom, Mom, can I have those turtles please, please, please?" I asked again. My mom looked annoyed and said, "No. You don't need a pet." "How come sissy has a fish then?" I argued.
6: My mom made a funny face and said, "Fine, you can have an early birthday gift." We brought the two turtles, Raelina and Freddie, home when Grace called and said she wanted me to sleep over at her house with the turtles.
7: When I got there, Grace started to show me around her house. We went to look at the pool in the backyard.
8: "Look I got turtles for my birthday!" I exclaimed. "Well, for my early birthday." I took out Raelina to show her, but then she crawled quickly out of my hand and onto the diving board and fell into the pool. SPLASH!
10: So I jumped into the freezing cold water with all my clothes on to save her because my turtles can't swim in deep water, and I thought she would drown.
11: I took her out of the water, but when I put her back in the container Freddie wasn't there! Where was he? I was shivering because I was wet, cold, and scared.
12: We looked around, and I soon saw him. He had gone through the fence and onto the golf course.
13: Nobody can fit through the fence! But Grace can! She is very thin, so she slipped through and rescued him. "Thank you so much, Grace" I said. "Your welcome. No problem, " she said sweetly.
14: Grace is such a kind friend.
15: THE END
