“Mom, where are the keys for the house?” I questioned.
“I don’t know,” my mom answered.
I was trying to look for the keys, but it was too late.
“Mom I have to go pee!” I yelled. Then my dad disappeared into the basement.
“Where is daddy going?” I asked, but my mom wouldn’t answer.
My mom was silent while my dad was still in the basement. I didn’t want to be outside because: One, the cats have a "hotel" (figure of speech) under our porch, and, two, "The Boss" (the raccoon, also a figure of speech) comes here. My mom said raccoons don’t like children. That made me scared like a sloth being hunted down by an eagle! I could still taste those yummy shrimp from the all-you-can eat-buffet. Then, finally, I saw my dad with a huge ladder.
“Vicente, could you go in the window?” My dad said.
Then my dad quickly tried to open a window. I was worried because I thought a neighbor would see us and think we are burglars. It was hard, so we waited and waited until. . .a nudge came out but that wasn’t enough. My mom tried to call our neighbor, Maria, but the phone was dead. We waited and waited.
Another nudge, and it was getting easier. And another nudge. But there was a problem. The dishes were blocking the way. There was only one more way - the back window! I would never climb there so my dad did again. Then I just remembered my room was there! He’ll squish my master pieces. But my Dad did anyway. So then I ran to the front door, and my dad opened the door. I hugged my dad so hard. I was happy to by home!
Me, my mom, and my dad learned that if we all work together, we can accomplish anything. I also learned that I should always remind my mom about the keys! The adventure was awesome, but I never, ever, never, ever, want to get in that situation in my whole entire life again.
That does sound scary! I'm always worried about getting locked out, too. I have about three sets of keys hidden around outside my house!
