Hello there. This is the story about the first time I got a pet. my name is Hugo Lambrechts and here is where it all began. Last night at around 12:00 pm I was about to go to bed when I saw a present on my bed from my Mom .When I opened my gift I saw a toy elephant inside. I saw it and I stared for quite some time, took a big breath and smiled. When I was about to go to bed I was dreaming of having a pet elephant and how it would be to have an elephant for a pet. The next morning, it was my birthday! I jumped for joy. Mom greeted me a happy birthday. Then I saw my dad , he was the one i had to beat, I mean if I want a pet elephant, then I have to go through him.
I said “Good morning Dad.”
Then dad said “Happy Birthday! What would you like for your birthday?”
I asked him “Dad can I have a pet elephant?”
My Dad looked shocked then he laughed a little then he became serious.
He said with a loud voice, “No! You can’ t have a pet elephant! I mean do you even know how to take care of an elephant?” I didn’t know what to say, I was stuttering like I was in the North Pole for days. Then the school bus went by with a big “HONK!” I can’t believe I was saved by the school bus. I was rushing to get out as soon as possible. “Bye Dad, Bye Mom see ya later.” I said in a rush.
Then I raced out the door in the school bus and off to school. After school, I got home then I overheard my Dad talking on the phone then he was talking about work and stuff then it hit me I heard him talking about a present! Then that made me think. So I just went up to my room and thought about it for a long time. The next day, while I was eating breakfast I saw my dad focused on the computer looking for something on a site about wildlife and stuff. So it made me wonder more and more. So when I got back from school I saw my Dad and Mom in front of the TV watching those documentaries about animals and so when I got bored I went upstairs in my room and thought about it again. When I got home I saw boxes everywhere and so I asked, “What are these boxes for?”
Then Mom answered “We are moving to a new house.”
Then I asked” But why?”
“You’ll see.” Said my Mom with excitement.
Then I went upstairs to pack my things. While we were driving to North Island I was thinking about what will the surprise be? So when I got there I went running down the car and up the stairs and into the room. Then I saw a basket on the floor and it said
To Hugo Dear darling Hugo
Happy Birthday! I hope you love your gift.
From your parents
Then when I opened the basket it was a baby elephant inside! .And that is the story of how I got my pet elephant.
