"Noooooooo!!!" I screamed!
"Alex, you have to stop dozing off in math class!!" My teacher said.
I rubbed my eyes, the thoughts of the deep colorful portal in my head. I was sleeping. It was a dream.
"Sorry, fractions are booooooring!" I said.
Ringgggggggggggg! Library for real this time. I rushed out and grabbed my books. As I was running to the library room, something fell out of one of my books. It looked old and tattered. I picked it up. It seemed to be a letter. The letter said:
You have picked up the book by A. M. Brown. This book contains The Letter of Life, (this.) As you know-
"That girl, I think she ripped it out of that book!" a classmate interrupted my reading.
I ignored her and got back to reading right away.
...As you know, this is a map.
PS If you want to figure out who I am, flip over this letter.
'No big deal,' I thought. But then I saw something more.
PPS You also have to free me from my enemy's clutches.
I flipped it over instantly.
PPPS you will fall down in three seconds. 3...2...1...
I shrieked as two loose tiles slid apart below me. I plummeted down for one second, then one minute, then four, then ten, then 60. I glanced down at the note. 'Who would write 3...2...1... in a letter? ...and why was this letter written with a quill and ink?' I thought.
The next thing I knew, I was in a huge pile of lettuce. I realized that I was in the lunchroom in the lettuce bin. The lettuce bin was huge, almost six feet wide. As I tried to climb out, I hit an air pocket and fell underneath. So, I went under more. I realized it was a lettuce secret passageway.
Again, I started to fall, and I landed on a pile of hay.
A dragon reared up in front of a cage! In the cage was a poster with the same handwriting that the letter was written in. There was also a cat in the cage, covered with ink. There were ink paw prints under and all over the cage. I realized that this was the author of the letter.
Now covered in lettuce, hay, and ink, I threw a stone at the dragon. He roared, flapped his wings, glanced at me, and soared up into the sky. That wasn't the last of him. The cat smiled saying a thousand words with just that one smile. I force the bars of his cage up, and the cat teleported us to our homes.
