Creative Writing- Fable

Fred the frog was an adventurous fellow. He always explored around his pond and all of the hiding places within it. You could always find him out and about looking around and meeting new frogs, fish, and other pond creatures! He knew just about everyone in his neighborhood.

But one afternoon, Fred was bored of all the same hiding places and people. He wanted to go out of his pond and follow the lily pads down to the stream. His friends told him not too, especially Wonda the owl. She knew something bad was going to happen if he left the pond. Wonda was the smartest owl around, and everyone always went to her for advice, except Fred. He thought he knew everything there is to know about his pond and whats outside of it. He thought he should go check it out for himself.

So off he went hopping the lily pads down to the stream. He was had all the confidence in the world, and he knew that when he got back to his pond all of the other frogs and fish would praise him for his braveness. Hip hop he went, not looking back to see if anyone was going to follow, he was alone.

All alone towards the stream and his pond was out of side. He wanted to talk to someone but nobody was around except for the crickets and the chirping ringing in Fred's ears. He arrived to the stream. The current was faster and stronger then he thought it would be and he didnt want to go to close to it. He had nobody to tell him what to do so he was deciding whether or not he should cross it. The water was rushing by and he could see that there were not even fish swimming around, just stones.

He decided to take a chance, so that the fish and frogs back home would honor him with his bravery. Just as he was about to hippity hop to the nearest stone out to the middle of the stream, Wanda the owl Whood. He quickly turned around with astonishment as he looked up above to see her sitting on the tree. She had been following him the entire time! "I wouldn't do that if I were you Freddy" She said with a cautious voice of wisdom. "I have to so everyone will see how brave I am at home!" he screamed. "Nobody has ever crossed the border of our pond except me Fred, Nobody thought it was a good idea for you to come out here, its very dangerous to cross this stream and you could get hurt" Wanda said with assurence. Fred hung his head as he hopped away.

He Hopped back to the pond with Wanda behind him, and to his suprise all of the frogs and fish praised him and cheered for him and his bravery! They thought that he was so smart for NOT crossing the stream and everyone loved him even more! He and Wanda became the best of friends and they forever explored there pond, together.
Creative Writing- Interview

Sitting in Mimi's Cafe, the local hangout, I was waiting for Cedric Harrison. Also known as the "New Kid on the Block". I was looking around, I see teenagers talking about the latest gossip, and plans for the weekend. I saw a boy walk throught the door, a very striking and hansom man I must admit. Could this be Cedric? Before sitting down across from me, he was mingling around the cafe talking to all of hish friends with short conversations and hello's.

He introduced himself to me and I began to ask him about his new life in Atlanta. He Just moved here no more than four months ago from Mosspoint, Mississippi. He came to Atlanta because of the horrific hurrican Katrina. She had wiped out most of his house and he and his family had no water whatsoever for almost two weeks. Disgusting, I know. "There was a lot of elderly people around us that also had no electricity and water so my family and I had to help them and ourselves to survive. We had to share the small amounts of food that we were given and the ice to keep ourselves cool." Cedric explains to me and his face grew concerned with the thought of the tragic memories.

As only a freshman at Chamblee, Highschool, Cedric is obviously not having a hard time fitting in. He has many friends and extraordinary grades. "I want to go to Auburn University, I like the way they do things academic wise, and their football is amazing so hopefully I will get to play when i get there." Mr.Harrison tells me that he is apart of the Junior Varsity football team at his school and by sophomore year he is hoping to get onto Varsity.

So as you can see, Cedric Harrison is an All-American teenage boy, just trying to get through his past mishaps and disasters to start all over again. Even though he misses his friends in Mississippi, he's not having any trouble finding new ones here.
