The next, lost in the woods, alone. How I got lost is that I was last in line. First in line was my mom. My hero, my leader. Next, my sister Hannah. She is my best friend. We did everything together before she had to go to Kentucky. Then, my brother, Sam. He is my life saver. Sticking up for me when people are mean, but that rarely happens. I have a lot of friends, and everyone I know likes me. My best friend Sarah couldn’t make it. She had to go to the beach. I was invited to go to the beach with her, but running is my life, I couldn’t miss it. Anyways, back to how I got lost. I was running and I got distracted by a dog. I thought he could have rabies or something, and could come attack my family and me.

But I wasn’t too worried. The next thing I know, I tripped over a log, and I’m rolling down a hill. I was knocked out after I hit the ground, but I don’t know how long. It must’ve been a while, counting the fact it was dark when I woke up. I woke up in the field; I could hear crickets, flies swarming around me, and snakes slithering towards me. When I woke up, I woke up to the dog. He had a collar and his name was Majesty. He was a huge St. Bernard. He was super sweet. The next thing I heard was the sound of my stomach. I was STARVING!!! Luckily, I still had my bag with me, and I had 3 water bottles and Peanut Butter crackers. No food was left after 30 minutes. Majesty kept barking. I kept wondering, “What is he barking at?” I followed him. It took a while to follow him because I sprained my ankle. He led me to my family! I was so ecstatic to see my family. My family took me home. That experience made me realize what people have and what people don’t have in life.
