1. The Day she comes home


I open my eyes. The sunlight slowly makes it way to my feet. Today is the day! I jump off my bed and run to my calendar. July 9!

I hurry and change into my clothes and I grab my cloak. I head down the stairs and dash out of the door. The uneven steps wasn’t a problem today. I jump off the steps and start running down the path. “ Excuse me!” “Sorry, sir” “ Mad’am that is a amazing dress” I take a sharp left, I crash into Larry’s store door. His door isn’t a normal door. It is a garage door type. I start banging my hands against the door. “ LARRY! LARRY! Open up!” I scream, pounding against the door.

The door starts to open. I see Larry standing there. “ You do know there is other ways to the dock.” he says. I glare at him. “ Yes but you have a short cut. Besides, you want to greet Clara as she comes home from camp too. Oh we planned a great dinner!” I babble on.

“ Okay, Okay I get it. You don’t want to say Hi, you want to use my store as a passage to the docks.” he snickers. I stand there and think for a minute then answer. “ Why yes. Now may I go?” I ask very nicely. Larry hands me the key. “ Go!” I jump up and down. “ Why thank you Larry! Now come on!” I grab his hand. “ Wait, I can’t leave the store unintended!” Larry yells as I unlock the door and pull him with me. “ This is more important than your store!” I yell. The docks was full today. I wasn’t surprised. Every family was there, waiting for their kids to come home from camp. I just pushed through everyone. I finally reached the end of the docks. I saw the boat. I wave. I let go of Larry’s hand and wave with both hands. As the boat drew closer I stood there screaming my head off. The boat finally reached and as girls came off. Finally Clara came off. “ Clara!” I scream. I run toward her. I jump on her. “ Hey Alicia!” she says as he weak arms struggle to hold me. “ and Larry.” she blushes. As I jump off her. They were staring into each others eyes. “ I am going to leave now.” I say.I run back to Larry’s store. Testing to see if he really rather stare into Clara’s eyes than run his store. “ Larry! Your store is all alone!” I yell

“That’s all right!” he yells back. I laugh and run through the door. I was good,I was happy, nothing could ruin my day. Right as I think that, I crash into my mother. “ Oh there you are sweetie. Is Clara back yet?”

“Yes mother, she is back.” I say sweetly.

“ Gazing into Larry’s eyes!” I snicker. She gives me a look to where I stop and give her a straight face. “ Go change into your pink dress. I need you dressed nicely for dinner.” my mother says. “ Yes Ma’am.” I bow and walk past her. I turn my head and watch her. When she disappears into Larry’s store, I start to run. I run through the people without even saying sorry, they probably thought of me as a trouble maker, which was true but who can they judge. I am the princess.
