Contest entry: The Uncovered Treasure
By Isabella Gaunt
Hannah was very lonely. Considering that she had no friends. The reason Hannah had no friends was because she was the new girl. On top of that she was really shy. What Hannah didn’t know was that she was about to learn the lesson of a lifetime.
One day while Hannah was doing different flips
Jessica looked over and watched. Jessica sashayed over to Hannah and introduced herself.
” Hi I’m Jessica.”
” I’m Hannah.”
The two started talking, Hannah and Jessica took turns showing each other how to do different kinds of tricks.
” Hey wanna have lunch with me and a couple of my friends?” Jessica asked.
” Sure.” Hanna stated sounding excited.
After they had lunch they went back outside, while they were outside Jessica tripped over a old tin lunch box and they began to dig it out. They finally uncovered the lunch box, as they opened it they discovered an old map.
This is the search for the treasure. The two friends came upon multiple obstacles, but two of the most outstanding obstacles were the pool of acid and deadly quick sand. To cross over the pit of acid Hannah and Jessica had to hop on stones across. To pass over the deadly quick sand they had to cross over a log. After following a couple more directions they came to their last step. The last step was to take 30 paces from the pumpkin shaped rock to find the big, fat, red X on the ground.
” I’ve hit something!” Hannah shouted at the top of her lungs.
The two finished uncovering the object and realized it was a treasure chest!
” Now that I found it… GIVE ME MY TREASURE!!” Jessica said greedily.
” Don’t you mean OUR treasure?” Hannah argued.
” No I mean MY treasure NOW GIVE IT TO ME!!” Jessica protested.
Jessica snatched the treasure out of Hannah’s hands and ran off and that was the last time Hannah saw Jessica until Monday at school and even then they didn’t interact with each other.
One day at school while Hannah was trying to do a side Ariel, round off, back tuck, back walk over she landed the back tuck wrong and hurt her ankle. Just as Hannah fell Jessica happened to look over and see. Jessica ran over to see if she was alright. When Jessica came to realize that Hannah was not she ran and got the nurse. After Jessica got Hannah to the nurse’s office she stayed to make sure the nurse didn’t need any assistance, which she didn’t. As Jessica sat in the nurse’s office with Hannah they began to talk.
The next day Hannah came to school in a cast. The doctor said that she fractured her ankle.
” Are you okay?” Jessica asked.
” Yes… I just can’t do too much.” Hannah said bummed.
” Well considering that you can’t play… do you wanna hang during recess?” Jessica asked Hannah.
” Sure” Hanna stated sounding a little more enthusiastic.
The two started talking and hanging out. Jessica helped Hannah around and at recess they were laughing and were having a great time when all of a sudden Jessica said…
” I’m sorry.”
” No I’m sorry” Hannah stated apologeticly
The two hugged and forgave each other. In the end they had uncovered the true treasure The Treasure of Friendship.
