The Glass Toy

by Trinity 

            One morning, in a house, Rex played with his toys. He loved having his own toys. He played and played for a long long time until his little sister, Ruby came in.

            “Hey big brother,” said Ruby. “What are you doing?”

            “Just playing with my toys,” said Rex.

            “Well, can I play?” said Ruby.

            “Ok, but be careful with my old glass toy.”

            “Ok,” said Ruby.

            When they played Ruby broke a glass toy and that toy was Rex’s glass toy!

            “Uh oh-oh no I broke Rex’s glass toy,” she whispered. “Hmm? Maybe I should fix it.”

            “Fix what?” said Rex.

            “Oh, it’s nothing,” said Ruby.

            Soon Rex and Ruby had lunch at home. Rex had and apple and sandwich and so did Ruby. Ruby ate very nervously and looked very odd to Rex.

            “What’s wrong Ruby?” said Rex.

            “N-n-n-nothing,” said Ruby.

            “oooooookay?” said Rex.

            Ruby tried to eat fast and to get to the bedroom before Rex does. She knows he would be mad. When Ruby got in the bedroom she snatched the blue and tried to glue the toy properly. When Rex got in the room he was surprised and upset by what he saw in the room.

            Rex said, “Ruby! Why would you break my toy? I thought I told you to be carful with it. If you’re going to play with it!”

            “Yes, but I did not mean it,” cried Ruby.

            “You did so Ruby,” said, Rex. “Leave my stuff alone! And get out and stay out of my room!”

            When Ruby got out Rex slamed his door. Soon Ruby cried and cried and got upset. Mom and dad came.

            “Why are you crying?” said dad.

            “because I broke Rex’s glass toy and he kicked me out of his room when he did not know I-I-I didn’t me-ean it.”

            “well we will talk to him. Rex!”

            “coming,” said Rex, as he opens the door. “w-w-what’s going on dad?” said Rex.

            “Look at Ruby and tell us why she’s sad this instant!”

            “because I was mad at Ruby when she broke my old glass toy.”

            Mom said “Well, she didn’t mean it, so say sorry and let’s break this siuation up and I’m seirius yong man.”

            “ok mom,” sighed Rex. “I’m sorry,” said Rex to Ruby.            

            “I guess that’s ok with me,” said Ruby. “Now let’s play!”

            “Yay! Whoope!” said Rex and Ruby.

            When they played mom and dad came in and opened the door and said, “Let’s go to the store.”

            “Ok,” said Rex and Ruby.

            So they got dressed up and went out to the store. When they got to the store Rex and Ruby asked for a toy. Ruby and Rex chose a new glass toy. The toy only cost $4.99 and the other glass toy too. So they payed for it and went outside. When they got to their house Rex and Ruby threw away the old, broked glass toy and played with their new glass toys. Rex and Ruby were happy. Rex and Ruby were glad with there own new toys.

I want this chair (with wheels) in this very color (apple green) for my new bedroom in my new apartment (which I have yet to procure). It is my birthday soon. Who wants to get me this “Eames Style Chair” (with wheels) so that I can have a lovely place to relax/lesson plan? Anyone?

Kid #1. Let’s call him “R.” He likes to kick chairs when he’s mad. Which is a lot.
