The Story

One day I was walking in my garden when I saw a small, shiny pebble on the floor. . . but it wasn’t a pebble, it was a penny. I went inside to wash it. Then I rubbed it with a paper towel. Suddenly everything stopped. My sister stopped while playing on the Wii. My mom stopped while cleaning the display. My dad stopped while hammering a nail. The only thing that didn’t stop was me … This could change my life. The end.
