He tried to sit out as much as he could, but everybody had to bat, and it was the last inning in the final game in the year end tournament. All bases were loaded, and there were two out. The first pitch was a strike. He swung and missed it. The second pitch was the same thing. But on the third pitch, he hit it. It was a home run; his first one ever! When he got in his team's dugout everyone on his team was cheering. Even the best player, that always got home runs, was cheering. Then he knew his dad was very proud of him. Because his dad had pushed him so hard, he got the home run he had been wanting.

I was in an open field when the rain came pouring down on me. The sky was gray with deep black clouds that shadowed the ground. A wind came and blew off my hat. I heard the thunder going Boom! Boom! Boom! I jumped. I was pretty sure it sounded like a bomb had just blown up. I tried to run back to my cabin, but the screeching wind that sounded like an animal in pain was pushing me back. A second later the lightening, that was striking the sky, hit a tree and almost burned it in half. I was really scared, but I couldn't move now for one strange reason. The wind had stopped, but the rain was still coming down at full force. I finally dragged my tired body back to our small cabin. I opened the door, and my Mom screamed. At first she didn't know it was me because I looked horrible before I got cleaned up. I laughed and put my freezing cold body in my nice little sleeping bag!

Once upon a time there lived on the bank of a stream a man and a woman who had a daughter. They never could make up their minds to punish her for her faults or to teach her nice manners; and as for work -- she laughed in her mother's face if she asked her to help cook the dinner or to wash the plates. All the girl would do was spend her days in dancing and playing with her friends. For any use she was to her parents, they might as well have had no daughter at all. However, one morning her mother looked so tired that even the selfish girl could not help seeing it, and she asked if there was anything she was able to do so that her mother might rest a little. The good woman looked so surprised and grateful for this offer that the girl felt rather ashamed. At that moment she would have scrubbed down the house if she had been requested, but her mother only begged her to take the fishing-net out to the bank of the river and mend some holes in it. Her father intended to go fishing that night.
