A fiery tale, by Thomes

Story for kids reading: I began the day on 08/04/1990. As I began every other day since I can remember. The air was fresh and crisp, the sun burning brightly on this beautiful Winter day. Like every other morning, I walked through the forest trees as tall as counting at least 4 different birds chirping happily among the branches. I changed my course, deciding it was time for my daily laughing. Scurrying down to the forest clearing by around 8:00 am, I ran into James happily sitting in the sun, reading Mr. tortoise and woodcutter. I called out to say hello, and we began talking about jumping.
Suddenly, the sun moved behind the clouds; it began to softly drizzle, and I felt strange and all I could taste was pasta. I exclaimed, oh! There was a strange smell that filled the air. Was it an egg? Or maybe spoil food? Could it be fire? James and I took off running through the clearing, seeing John, and Mr. Obi, and even Jerry running for cover! Happy, I gulped. What would become of us? What would become of all our homes? I thought fondly of my skirt and Monday, would they be lost forever? Rubbing my nose, thinking hard, I looked around, trying to find the source of the awful smell that was steadily growing stronger. In all the commotion, I lost sight of James but saw a crowd of cats gathering in the distance.
By the time I arrived on the scene, the Ranger had poured Tiger nut drink and Rice and stew all over the raging flames, putting out the fire. Relieved and smiling weakly, I found James, as well as my friend’s jerry and Mr. Obina and Mrs. Ruth, and bounced over to them knowing that the day was saved! We all thanked the Ranger over and over, and the sun again broke through the clouds as the last remaining puffs of smoke cleared. James grabbed me by the shoulders and shook me excitedly, insisting that we still had time to scamper off to Running and make the most of the beautiful day.
