The Strange Rock
By Violet N.
Once on a rainy day, I was walking in a jungle near a load of trees and stream. I was walking through the stream. I accidently stepped on something hard. I picked it up, and it was a big rock. I took it out of the water, set it down, and walked the other way. While I was walking I came to a dead end, so I walked the other way towards the rock. When I saw it, it was up in a tree I wondered, “but how did it get up there?”

One day I was bored so I decided to take a walk in the woods. I walked and walked until I came across a letter. The letter said, “Keep on walking till you see light.” So I did.

I thought to myself, but how did it get up there? Now, I was lost in the woods.
