Hattie's Birthday Box
One freezing night Otto and I headed out to our new house. It got me tired moving side by side on the way. My bottom hurt, but when I saw a hill I felt my whole life was gone when we went over it. I felt like I was going to die.
It was about to become winter and I had no food. My stomach was growling with hunger and we wouldn’t find the way to our new home. So I tried to look for food but there was no place to look. I was getting tired so I went to sleep in the wagon. Otto came in too. We slept all night, it was morning we heard a noise. We ran outside, Otto and I saw another wagon coming this way. When they stopped they told us if we were lost, I told them we were. I knew not to open the box because it wasn’t the worst it was just bad. Otto wanted to take responsibility and he wanted to find the way home. Even though things got bad they never got to their worst.
The lady in the wagon had food and she gave us some, Otto finally found the way to our house. We were so happy we started building right away. We used some bricks to build the house, as we were building the house we heard a rumbling sound, it was the house. It was burning down. I thought of the box that Spencer gave me; however I felt that it would help me get more supplies. As I was going to open the box it was empty. I didn’t know what do. I was crying and I thought everything was gone for good. I was waiting to see what Otto would say. Just when I told him, he found some wood and I was so happy that we had wood to build another house. We started building right away again. In a few more months Otto died and so did Spencer. We knew the box would give us hope, we were really sad but we got over it. We were a really happy family even though Spencer and Otto died.
