That’s how I learnt my lesson
Long, long time ago… Well, not that long, it was yesterday I dozed off in class because I was bored. And my classmates began to look at me as if I were mad. As I began to wander off in my little dream, I felt like an ant and my sister was so big. She seemed 100 feet tall.
Ants were my worst NIGHTMARE of all, they always bother me as if they were like a flea. In my dream, as soon as I would see one, it would die.
I had told my sister that ants would eat fairies and carry them underground. She was so young that she would believe anything and everything. So she stepped on ants as if it were a dance. As my sister was stepping closer and closer, I saw the soles of her shoes. Then I woke up to say “nightmare!”. And the teacher said “correct Lilly, well done!”
That’s how I learnt my lesson.
