Blue skies, scented flowers, and green trees along with the smell of freshly cut grass filled the air. Bradley though, couldn’t care less. This was his first day of summer break. And like any other 6th grader at his school, he would like to enjoy the time being homework free. He had just got up a few moments ago still feeling tired. That didn’t stop him from catching his favorite TV show at 6 a.m. every morning. You know, the show with the purple dinosaur that 3 year olds watch.
He was eating breakfast while watching the show like always. He and his friends were going to go to a buddy’s house for their usual Saturday game day. At the time, the house was empty because both his parents had gone to work. Bradley loved having the house to himself because then he could do whatever he wished. By now it had already been noon. Bradley’s mom was going to come home for lunch. There was no time for his mom to cook him lunch. Instead, his mom got take out from a Chinese restaurant because he had to go to his friends’ in a little. Bradley was eating slowly because he always loved Chinese food.
He then looked at the clock and saw that he was late. His mom drove him over to his friends’ He was there for the entire afternoon. He felt tired so he walked home because his house was two miles away.
When he had got home, he took off his shoes and coat and looked up. The president was standing right in front of his face. Bradley was shocked. He was asking himself why the president would be in his house. The president asked him if he would like to take his place as president. Bradley immediately answered yes not knowing the consequences. He then followed the president to the helicopter landed in the back of their house. He stepped inside the chopper, and they left. When they landed he then stepped outside the chopper.
Bradley was waiting for the president to come out, but he shut the door and the helicopter left. Bradley looked around. All he could see was trees and swamp. He was confused, knowing that he was not at the white house. He then realized this was some kind of trick. Then he asked himself why the president would want him to take his place. Bradley yelled for help. There was no answer. He luckily had brought his pocket knife. It was attached to his cell phone. But there were no bars so he couldn’t call for help. He started walking north knowing that would get him closer to civilization. It was getting darker and was harder to see. He decided to stop there. He first built a fire using the pocket knife and a couple of sticks. He quickly found as many grubs as possible and roasted them over the fire. He got tired so he found some giant leaves and pilled them up for a pillow. He then fell asleep quickly. During the night, he woke up a few times wondering how worried his parents were not knowing where or what he was doing.
In the morning he started towards the north again. Several hours past with no luck. Suddenly, he found a river, knowing that if you followed it down stream, it would lead you to civilization. It took him many hours, but he finally came to where he was at a place he knew. He was at the pizzeria a city away from his house. Although he would like to get home now, it was midnight and Bradley was tired, hungry, and thirsty.
He stayed here for the night. No one was at the pizzeria, so he took whatever he could eat and drink. Then, he fell asleep. The next morning, he started toward his house. He managed to get there in a few hours. When he got home, he opened the TV. He found out that the president had been arrested. His parents weren’t home either. How did they know what the president did to me? Where had happened to my parents?
