AT THE PARK
written by Debbie Williamson
“Troll Mother,” said Troll Sister, who was feeling a little bored because her brother was away at Troll Camp. ”Can I go to the Troll Park with my Troll friend, Troll Sally?”
”I don’t know,” said Troll Mother. “There have been a lot of bad things going on there lately.”
”Troll Sally goes there everyday,” said Troll Sister.
“Yes, I know that,” said Troll Mother. ”Troll Sally does a lot of things that I don’t like.”
”But please Troll Mother,” said Troll Sister. “I’d only be gone for about an hour.”
”I’ll let you go with her tomorrow,” said Troll Mother. ”Troll Brother will be home by then and he can go with you.”
”Alright,” said Troll Sister.
Troll Sister called her friend and told her what her mother had said.
”Okay,” said Troll Sally. “I’ll see you tomorrow then.”
”Are you still going to the park today?” asked Troll Sister.
”I think so,” said Troll Sally.
”You should be careful,” said Troll Sister. “Troll Mother says that bad things happen there a lot.”
”I’ll be careful,” said Troll Sally.
A few hours later, Troll Sally came to Troll Sister’s house. She was bleeding.
”Oh my!” cried Troll Sister, when she saw her friend. ”What happened to you?”
”I was at the park and some Troll Guy pushed me!” Troll Sally, cried.
“Oh my!” exclaimed Troll Mother, getting a washcloth for Troll Sally. “That park is just getting too rough.”
After Troll Sally left, Troll Sister told Troll Mother that she never wanted to go to the park, ever.
The next day, Troll Sally called Troll Sister.
”How are you now?” asked Troll Sister.
”I’m okay,” said Troll Sally. ”However, I just wanted to tell you that I don’t want to go to the park today. Actually, I never want to go to the park, ever again!”
“Good,” said Troll Sister. “Either do I!”
