FFfAW – Tree Hugger

If you cut this tree down you must cut through me because I am going to continue to hug it!”

“Look lady, we are just here to do a job, please let us do our job!”

“No, you cannot cut this tree down! I won't allow it.”

“But your landlord wants it cut down and it is our job to do just that.”

Suddenly, bugs started falling off the tree into my hair and I screamed,

“Bugs!”

“Now will you let us do our jobs?”

I didn't answer.

Instead, I leave devastated that the bugs were killing my tree.

FFfAW-Our Boat Ride

Matthew and I decided to go to the Mississippi River and take a boat ride up the Mississippi. We were so excited about it and decided to leave early in the morning.

When we got there the first thing we did was stand in line to buy tickets. Someone behind us said,

“Kids in love make me sick.”

We couldn't believe our ears, and decided not to respond to that hateful statement.

While on the boat we saw this person again and she came up to us and apologized and told us,

“When I was a kid, I was in love but after about six months he left me for another girl. I have never been able to get over that.”

We told her how sorry we were (and we truly were) but we were there to take a boat ride.

Yes, we were kids in love and we had a blast on the boat ride. We hope she did too.

FFfAW – Home

My favorite thing to do is go out into the desert and walk among the hills and rock formations.

I love the solitude and the freedom that it allows me to have out among nature, watching the lizards and horned toads scurrying over the rocks to their homes.

Sitting underneath the stars that stretch along the sky, I know that I am in my element and I lie back and take it all in.

I feel at peace among my lizard friends, here in the desert, where it is quiet. So very quiet.

I am truly home, in the desert.

FFfAW – My Friend Jake

I remember the wind blowing through my hair as I rode my horse along Wonder Bay Beach. The salty air clung to my nostrils as I breathed in the misty air. My horse galloped along the sandy beach as I laughed at the feel of complete freedom. Jake was by my side on his horse and we found ourselves racing to the end. The seagulls called in the air and we enjoyed the privacy of the beach to ourselves.

This memory is engraved into my mind. Jake left for war one week after this and I never saw him again.

Christina Osgood was murdered one year ago on this exact day and we have been looking for her body ever since. How did we know we had a murder since her body hadn't been found?

Taylor Windsworth wrote a letter to the local police stating that he had murdered Christina because she wouldn't date him. He killed himself after he wrote the letter and didn't say where he had placed her body.

Today our worst fears were confirmed, we finally found her body in a field off of Highway 110. Her body will now come home for eternal rest.

FFfAW-Running as Fast as I Can

The other night I was walking home from my friend's house when I saw a white van driving down the street very slowly. Immediately I thought of the news of a white van being seen at which time a young girl was kidnapped. My heart skipped a beat and I began running down the street to my home.

The van sped up as I was running and my heart was beating out of my chest. The fear that I felt was palpable and I just knew I was about to be kidnapped too.

Suddenly, the van pulled up beside me and I tried to run even faster, when a voice from the van said,

“Young lady, which way is it to Main Street?”

I didn't turn and look, instead I pointed my finger in the other direction, and picked up my speed.

The van turned around and drove off in that direction and I was finally home safe and sound.

FFfAW-The Green Planet

When they landed on the planet, Nesbulia, they noticed that green cocoon looking things hung everywhere they could see.

“Look man, this is really creeping me out. There are all these green cocoon things.” Martin pinched his face as he said it.

Luther stopped suddenly and answered Martin, “Maybe these green cocoon things are their homes.”

Both men proceeded cautiously toward the green cocoons.

Suddenly, a deafening noise sounded and they both stopped in their tracks.

“Who's there?” Demanded a voice from the loud speaker.

“We are friendly people here to meet our planet's neighbors.”

“Stop where you are and go no further!”

Two small men stepped out of the cocoons and walked over to the men.

“We don't have any neighbors.”

The green men reached out their hands in what seemed to be a gesture to shake hands. The men reached out their hands to shake and suddenly they were transformed into inhabitants of green cocoons.

Luther and Martin looked at each other noting that the other had become a beautiful shade of green.”
