"Can I open the envelope?" I asked my mom. "Right after you finish dinner," she said.
“OK, I sighed.” Right after dinner, I took the envelope and carefully tore it open. And 3 tickets came out. I looked closely at them and it said, 'Free tickets to Florida'. The tickets covered the cost for the subway and everything.
“No way!” I shouted. The next morning I told my friend Tom. He was amazed and I asked him to come too.
“I don’t think we would be allowed without a grownup,” said Tom.
“But there’s still one more ticket,” I said, “hmm, I think we can ask a grown up." "Yes!" Tom said. "How about Miss Karen?"
“No way, she’s a teacher!” I said.
“How about Miss Jess?” he said.
"She's our principal. That would be even worse!"
"OK,how about Miss Hannah, my Mom?"
“Fine,” I said.
The next morning, I went to Tom’s house, and they would take me to the subway. When we got there, we gave our tickets and sat down. The subway started moving, faster and faster.
Suddenly - the lights went out! The fans stopped and windows closed. I could see a mysterious shadow running through the hallway. Tom was sleeping and his feet were sticking out into the hallway. The mystery shadow tripped on his feet, and bumped his head on the fire alarm! The sirens started ringing everywhere. The fire crew came from the cabin, and looked for the person who rang the alarm. The mystery shadow turned out to be the most wanted criminal ring master in all of America.
The ring master was arrested and taken away. Tom and I got a huge award by the police for helping with the arrest.
