I’m having such a blast telling this story so far! I feel like a kid again, standing in front of the class, reading a tale that I wrote the night before to get an A in Language Arts. I’m reminded of the very first story that I can remember that got some applause.
It was about a boy who gets stranded on a deserted island and finds a monkey friend that helps him with survival. They build an escape raft, but the boy realizes that he loves the island and does not want to leave his monkey best friend. So, he stays on the island until something unexpected happens.
The volcano in the middle of the island begins to erupt. In a panic, the boy takes the monkey, boards his escape raft and casts off. As he sails, a violent storm approaches and capsizes the raft, sending the boy and his monkey overboard.
The boy wakes up in the comfort of his bed, realizing it was just a dream. His feelings of relief are quickly flooded by his feelings of grief for his lost monkey friend. Suddenly, the boy hears sounds of his monkey underneath his bed.
The End! :)
