Conditions of Use
One sunny warm morning Otto and I packed up for our trip to Nebraska we are going to homestead there. It was long, and boring. The wagon always bumped. The only food that we had were yams, soup, biscuits, and potatoes. We had to sleep under the wagon. Under the wagon there were small, lumpy, bumpy rocks. Also during our ride rats kept getting in our food. The trip to Nebraska was not fun at all. But then 2 months later we got there it was a plain open land with some trees.
So as we start to build the house a storm hits, there is lightning and thunder. It is like a hurricane out there. Me and Otto are hugging each other we are scared and we watch as our house starts blowing down. Otto tells me that “there is no more wood, and no more brick.” That is what made me think of the box.
I found the box were I left it under the seat of the wagon. I tell Otto that we do have wood, and brick because I have this box Spencer gave me. He said that there is something in there that is expensive maybe a gold necklace, or a diamond bracelet. This could help us. So I take the box as I start to open it I realized that there was nothing in there. It feels like my heart stops I am so surprised that Spencer lied. I say to Otto you were right there is no wood, and brick. There is nothing in the box. After I closed it I also realized that the storm was done and our house is gone
We get out from under the wagon go to where the house was and all that was left was broke wood and brick. I say to Otto what are we going to do then Otto said “what if we cut done some of the trees.” I say that is brilliant. So he went and cut some trees came bake and we made a log cabin.
