Once upon a time there was a dog named Bentley. He was brown and white. He was taking a nap. He was laying down, all curled up on a blanket. Bentley had a bad dream. In his dream he was lost in a forest and he saw a giant animal; It was a lion! In the dream he ran away as fast as he could. He was a fast runner and would always beat his owners in races. In his dream, he got out of the forest and then he woke up! When he woke up he freaked out. Then he got tired again and went back to bed. The End.

Once upon a time there was a boy named Liam Noah. Noah’s life was great. His skin was as smooth as a baby’s bottom. One night Noah got into an argument with his mother about his hygiene. He told his mother that he can’t wait to grow up. As soon as his head hit the pillow he fell into a deep slumber. At 7 am on the dot he woke up for school as usual. Once he woke up he went to the bathroom to when he noticed his face was heavy. When he looked into the mirror with facial hair as long as a giraffe’s neck. Life went on and he never moved out of his mother’s basement and forever lived alone, with his mother. No one wanted him because of his long facial hair and he died alone. The End :)

It was a friendly day in Chicago when clouds started forming. Then suddenly, the CBR tower was hit with a gamma-ray missile and fell right into Trump tower. Reinforcements were called to fight the alien spaceship that was destroying the city. Then suddenly giant fire aliens started burning down structures. Then, missiles were fired from an unknown location. It was the reinforcements with a giant robot! Then POW! The robot slammed the fire giant to the ground but the monster appeared from Lake Michigan. The monster shot a laserbeam from its mouth. With very few options left, the robot grabbed the Willis Tower, which showed a sword underneath, and jumped and SWISH stabbed the sword right through its’ skull and sealed its doom. And Chicago was saved! The End.

One day little Butter ran through the city and found himself in front of The Bean (aka Cloudgate). He was just a kitten. Little Butter explored all of the ground near The Bean. Then, he explored the rest of Millennium Park. Then, he came across a bridge and ended up in the modern wing of The Art Institute of Chicago. Then he went down to the bottom level where the throne rooms were, which are the little doll houses. Then, he makes his home in the doll houses he likes best! Then, he explores the rest of the museum. Then, he gradually grew into Butter the cat. Butter built passage ways from room to room so he didn’t have to break glass in every throne room he stayed in. The End.

When I think of Chicago I think of my home.
It taught me a lot that’s in my dome.
I thank God for making me one of his creatures
Now when I grow up I was thinking of being a preacher
Everyday someone gets shot that’s to prove life isn’t fair.
So now everybody needs to help and care.

It was my first day in Chicago, lets just say it didn’t go as planned. We were here for a family reunion but that didn’t happen. Instead of going to dinner and coming home we went to dinner and never left. Lets start from the beginning. The whole family met for dinner and two vampire looking waiters took us to a tinted dining room. At first I didn’t think anything of it, but when we couldn’t leave thats when I started to freak out. The only one able to escape was my sister, she pushed over the waiters and ran. So we all just hope she is ok and finding way to help us. Till then I write stories and hope she hears them. The End.
