A Way To The Past Essay

969 words - 4 pages

Anne was a simple child who was always looking for a way out of everything. If she was told to do the dishes, she would find every possible thing to do besides the dishes. She was a perfect angel before her mother Clairabeth ‘had an accident’ last year in 2012. Now she is perfect at resisting. That’s where I come in. I have come to tell our fantastic adventure.
She was in the kitchen and her dad was making toast. “Anne darling, will you please get the butter?” She shook her head in disagreement to what her father ordered for her to do. He sighed. Being a single father was hard enough and she made it no easier. “Very well, I’m going to go brush my teeth. I have no time for dawdling.

It had wooden houses and people were wearing old clothes. Where was she? What year was it? Anne was going to ask someone when she tripped over a rock and landed flat on her face. A boy her age came up and asked her if she was okay. “Yeah I’m fine. Thanks.” She stood up. “My name is Anne. You are…?” The boy laughed and said, “I’m Tommy. You’re not from here are you? Let’s go to the pond and have a real discussion.”
They walked to the pond and shared stories and she told him all about how she got there and how she was trying to find her dad. “Have you seen him?” She asked. “I’m afraid not. This here is the...
