It is a bad day in 2007. My family had all gathered around the picture of my dad earlier today. My dad died a year ago in New York City. Before he died he said that I had to go look in the side of the basement. Today I finally did and found that there was a small hidden door.
But before I could move it I had to do the dishes. When I was done I hurried down and moved the washer machine.WOW.I thought in my head, because when I open the door there was a weird glass and metal machine man. I was amazed.
Just then here comes my annoying sister. I try to hide it but you know girls they have to know everything.
“What is that?” She asked.
“Really I have no clue,” I said.
She had to see the lever. “Push it push it,” she yelled.
“You’re just a chicken! I hear a chicken, bock bock!”
“I am not a CHICKEN!”
“ If you stop I will do it,” I said, “3 2 1!” As Soon as I pushed it down it zapped me.
The next day when I go to school I start being really mean and grumpy.I did not feel tired. When my friend comes over all I said was shut up.
“Sorry sorry,” I said, but he was really mad at me.
I stomped down stairs when I got home.What did this thing do? When I take a closer look there was a name on the back I could barely see. It says my dad made it. Man it seems like it has been down here for a long time.Soon as I dust it off it says that it was made in a laboratory in 1998.What is it?
“Mom you have some explaining to do tonight.”
“Well yes your dad was a scientist but how did find this?”
“ before dad died he told me to look there.”
“Did you get zapped! “
“ why were you messing with it?”
“I don’t know sorry.”
“I know just the person to help you.”
His name is Rich Poleman he is a scientist that works for the EYU in the state lab he could help you.How he knows a lot of things like this,but he will need your help. can you do it. I will try to help. I will call him now! He will need some of your DNA. I hope this works.
