“I will.” Olivia announced bravely stepping forward. She took a deep breath. I can do this. If I can master first grade, I can do this.
Olivia Love entered the maze.
Penelope went next. She was nervous.
“It’s okay to be scared,” Ninjapiglet said. “I’m scared too. We can go together?”
“Thanks, but I can do this. It’s a rule to go alone.” Once she entered the maze she tried to get her bearing. Fog drifted everwhere. There’s the haunted house…and there’s the exit. This must be the direction out of the maze.
Ninjapiglet wished she’d remembered to have more snacks back at the house. She was trying to save her candy, but her tummy was already begining to growl. The faster I get through this, the faster I can eat.
onezero watched all her friends go into the maze. She understood why they were scared, with tombstones and spiders everywhere, but onezero was not afraid. She could her her 1000 mommies singing to her. She hummed along. They want me to go in there. They have something to show me. onezero entered confidently.
“That was really cool!” Olivia said as onezero excited. They’d been waiting for everyone to return before they started talking. “I was scared at first, but it wasn’t so bad. And the house in the middle! The note said that I was brave for going first. I got a doll as a present. Did you get a doll too?”
Ninjapiglet still held her plate. “No, it was filled with food. As far as the eye could see.” Her eyes were somewhat misty when she spoke. “And filled to the brim with cookbooks and all kinds of books!”
“That’s not what I saw.” Penelope said. “I saw a huge laboratory filled with all this science equipment. And there were books and books on momemtum and multidimentional travel. I got a book about Godel. What did you get onezero?”
onezero smile. “I didn’t get anything.”
“But your room…what was in the house for you?”
“My mommies. They had a message for me, for both of us,” she looked over at Penelope who was watching her friend closely. “We need to go back to Sixam.” She smiled and threw her arms out. Penelope gave her a big hug.
“Okay kids!” Cathy Tea and Cocoa called from where they’d been chatting nearby. “It’s getting late, I think we should call it a night. Let’s head back home.”
