It is one cold day and the wind wails everywhere. I am in the living room watching other people playing Fortnite. I am sad, I wish I could play Fortnite like the old days. I wish everything was like the old days.
Unexpectedly the doorbell rings. An Amazon delivery person is outside. I take a deep breath and I open the door. It is very mysterious because I know I didn’t order anything but my name is on the box. I sign for the package and I use my hand to drag it inside. Since the accident I’ve kept myself inside, afraid of other people making fun of me. I haven't felt brave for a long time. Should I open this package or not?
A short time later I make my decision. I will open the box. I get a pocket knife and I slice the box open. SHING! Immediately a multicoloured, furry, small creature bursts out like a rocket. It looks like a rat that got stuck in a fairy floss machine. It runs into the living room like a jet. I sneakily pick it up. I start patting it on the back until it falls asleep. I carefully return it to its box. I slowly go to my room for bedtime thinking what a strange little creature.
Without warning I wake up to a rumbling noise coming from the box. I walk out of my room as sneakily as a ninja.The lights begin flickering like crazy and the box tips over. The box tips over and my hamster runs as fast as fast as lightning, past me and into my room. I run to the fridge, get a piece of cheese and I drop it onto the plain, wooden floor. The hamster looks directly at the cheese and then slowly walks towards it, then he furiously takes a bite. As I watch him chew, I notice the strangest thing. The hamster has 3 legs. It reminds me of my own hand that is missing. I create a trail of cheese to lead the hamster out of the house and into the backyard.
We are both outside in the sparkling sunshine. We both begin running around as happy as kids in a playground. I feel like this hamster was brought to my door for a reason. We are going to be best friends.
Who would believe this little hamster becomes my best friend?
