It was getting late, and the kids had to get ready
for bed. They were already done with their dinner and had brushed their teeth.
They kissed their parents goodnight and curled in their beds under the covers.
It was a bit chilly but not too much, but Molly kept
herself bundled up so that her little feet wouldn't get cold. After a while, her and
her little brother Steve were sound asleep.
Molly started dreaming of a beautiful green park with
lots of big trees and berry bushes. She saw herself walking around with her little
brother when she saw a pair of red shiny boots in the bushes. They looked sparkly
new and she thought they were just the size of her cold little feet. "These
boots will keep my feet warm" she thought, and when she didn't find anyone in the
park she figured that they don't belong to anyone.
Molly tried the boots on and they fit perfectly! Her brother thought they looked
beautiful on her. Molly stood up and started walking, but all of a sudden...
became invisible. The only thing you could see was her shoes walking through the
park. However, Molly did not know that she was invisible. As she wandered
around the park, she became lost and could not get back home.
Molly went up to several people to ask for
directions, but no one responded to her. She had no idea that they could not see
her. She thought that maybe they had seen her take the boots and they would not talk
to her because she was untrustworthy. She decided to take the boots off. She
was immediately seen by others in the park, they were very generous to give her direction,
and she made it home.
The next thing she knew she was in her bed.
She never knew why others in the park did not talk to her, and she was wondering if it
really was a dream!
