Salmon jumping

Salmon jumping

Still turned around, I tried to knock on my front door when, to my surprise, it wasn't there. I had knocked on something. I turned to see and my eyes got as big as golf balls. There was a herd of cows where my house should have been and a fence that went farther that I could see. I had been knocking on a bull's head! I slowly backed away. I turned and saw an open gate.


That must have been how I got in! I headed for the gate, and hopefully freedom. When I was about half way there, the bull started to charge. I sped up, but just as I was almost there, the wind blew the gate shut. I dove as fast as I could through the barbed wire fence. I had a deep cut on my arm from the wire, but at least I was away from that bull.

I was holding my arm to try and stop the bleeding when I heard someone say, Hay! What er ya doin her. It sounded like an old guy but I was too focused on every thing that had happened in the past two hours to really care. I was thinking, First, the sun sets at 2:30, then it starts to rise in no time flat. There are cows in my yard, my house is missing and now my arm is cut to pieces.

I heard a sound and turned around to find that the old man had a shotgun. I thought to myself, Well GREAT! Now an old geezer with a twelve gage is yelling at me. I almost asked him to just shoot me because I was obviously going crazy.

I asked him who he was and he said, I'm da man who erns this land, and what ya doin in my cow pasture?

I meant a name sir, I said while backing up.

They call me Mr. Barnett, he said while cocking his gun, and I'd love a reas'n why yur in my cow pasture, sonny!

I thought to myself, Mr. Barnett was the name of the hermit who lived in the old house over 100 years ago.

Um, my house was here. I said Boy, I want da truth he said as he pointed the gun at me. I ran into the woods as fast as I could. I heard his laugh echo through the forest. I kept running. When I looked back, I felt the ground come out from under me. I had fallen over 7 feet into the creek.

Right when I hit the water I woke up. What the heck! Where am I I thought. I looked around only to realize that I was on the couch, where I took my nap earlier. Whew! What a relief I thought.

Then I gathered up my things and went fishing.
