A Horrible Great Nightmare Essay

842 words - 3 pages

I felt dizzy, so I got up and looked around. I thought it was around 4:56 pm. I looked to my left and to my right. I even looked forward and behind me. I didn't recognize any of my surroundings. I should have listened to my brown haired mom when she said, “Joey, don't mess with anything you don't know." Now I, irresponsible Joey, was stuck in a place I had no clue about.
