Hide And Go Seek
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
It was the beginning of March Break and I was ready to enjoy it. I had no school and I was free to do anything I wanted. Living with me, were these kids who were sort of my cousins. There were two of them... a boy named Jake and a little girl named Jenny.
Now, little Jenny here just loved to play hide and go seek. She especially loved the hiding part. So I wasn't at all surprised when Jenny tugged my arm one day and said, "Hide and go seek!"
Normally, I wouldn't waste my time on playing a childish game, but today I felt great so I said to myself, why not? and soon I was counting to 20...
I had found everyone except for Jenny, and I was certain that I heard her voice in the closet. I opened it but found no one there. Then I heard her voice again so I decided to take a closer look, but still she wasn't there.
Finally, I gave up and left the room.
When I got to the living room I was shocked to see Jenny sitting on the sofa watching TV. I stared at her and said, "Weren't you hiding in the closet?" Jenny stared up at me with a strange expression on her face. "No, I was hiding in the basement, but I got bored so I came out."
As everyone watched TV I sat alone in my room staring at my closet, and shaking my head. Who made that voice..? I wondered.
I didn't even notice the closet door open...
