Sarah’s Summer Story
The last day of school just ended. Sarah could not wait to get home and take her dog, Biters, to the cooling lake. As Sarah ran home her silky blond hair flittered straight back behind her. When she was just about home, she saw her best friend Dylan with his best friend Richard. They both had dark brown hair and eyes, while her eyes were light blue.
“Hey, Dylan, Richard do you want to come to the lake with me and Biters?” she asked.
“Okay, I love to play fetch with Biters,” said Dylan.
“Um, okay, but don’t let Biters bite me. Last time that gave me an infection,” replied Richard.
When they were at Sarah’s house they grabbed Biters favorite ball and leash and started towards the lake. Finally, they were at the lake. The moment Biters was unhooked from his leash he ran straight into the lake. His long dirty blond hair flying back with his slobbery tongue. Dylan threw the ball into the lake as Biters watched and ran after it.
Sarah laid down in the soft sand, when she spotted Aires walking over to her. “What do you want Aires?” she asked in an angry tone. She and Aires had been enemies since pre-school.
“I thought your dog was not allowed here anymore because he bit me,” Aires said with a rude tone.
“It was only until I trained him. Now he is trained and he can come all he wants, bye-bye,” replied Sarah and walked over to a more, sunny and Aires free place, to sun tan. Then Aires hopped into the lake and started to swim out really far into the lake. Meanwhile, Dylan threw the ball really far out into the lake, but Biters still ran after it.
It had been one hour and Biters had still not returned. Sarah walked over and said, “Where’s Biters? I think I’m going to run him home and rinse him off or my mom will freak,” said Sarah.
“Uh, I sort of threw the ball really far out an hour ago and he hasn’t come back,” he said in a scared voice.
“I’ve had that dog since I was five and now I am 11!” shouted Sarah.
“I’m sorry, I bet he’ll be back soon. Don’t worry, let’s just wait a little longer,” he answered. So they waited and waited and waited and waited, until it had been 2 hours and it was getting dark. “Now my dog is gone. Thank you,” she said in a sad, but rude tone as she started towards home.
Meanwhile, Aires had seen Biters and thought he might keep him for a while.
The next day Sarah put up posters saying:
My dog is lost I need to find him. If you see him please tell me.
Dylan went straight to Aires with one of the posters that Sarah had made. When he knocked on the door Aires mother Mrs.McArence answered. “Have you seen this dog Mam?” he asked
“Why yes he was loose at the lake. Aires brought him home to keep. Is he your dog?” she replied.
“No, but Aires knows that he is my best friend Sarah’s dog. They don’t get along well, but Sarah is missing him so much and Aires made it seem like I lost him,” he said.
“Oh, I will talk with him and here is the dog,” she said.
“Thank you and bye,” said Dylan taking the dog as he started sprinting towards Sarah’s house.
Sarah was in the yard reading her favorite book Chester.
“Sarah I found him. He was at Air’s house!” he yelled from outside the gate.
Sarah got up opened that gate and said,“Thank you sooo much!” as she hugged him and bent down to hug Biters.
They ran and rinsed Biters off, then sat in the yard talking and playing with Biters, giving him treats, and having their own snack.
“I am so glad Biters is back,” Sarah said.
“Me too,” Dylan replied.
