FC: Muskrat Encounter | By: Sami Van Drisse
1: Right when school gets out, I always count down the days on my calender until my family and I go to a cottage with my entire extended family. The cottage is set up on a big hill with a lot of trees surrounding it, and has almost one hundred steps leading down to the lake.
2: There is always so much to do! With nineteen other family members I never get bored! We always like to jump off of a wooden raft about 50 yards from the shore.
3: We would spring out of bed every morning and hurry down to the lake and not think twice about jumping into the water. | But, that all changed one day!
4: One a warm sunny day we were all jumping off the raft and into the refreshing water. When it was my turn to jump I saw something out of the corner of my eye but not until I got back up to the surface did I found out what I had seen.
5: It was a very unfamiliar looking creature. It was a fat and furry creature with a long tail and it was only a couple feet away from me!
6: Once we figured out it was a muskrat we all started darting off in the other direction while kicking and screaming and then muskrat is bolting in to opposite direction across the lake. | I never went back into the water that day!
7: It is hard to believe, but even to this day we still sometimes see the furry creature bobbing its head back and forth and gliding its tail through the water.
8: THE END
