Mama Duck

By Luke Lumsden, age 8, California


Mama Duck was sitting on her nest. It was hot. Crraack! “Ooooh,” said Mama Duck. She thought her eggs were hatching but she was wrong: It was a car that broke its window heading towards her nest! She stood up, flapped her wings, and ran at the car.

“Vrrrrmmmmm crraaack,” said the car.

“Peeeeeep peeeeeeeeep psssst,” said Mama Duck.

Crraaf bam boom! Then it was silent.

The car was flatter than a pancake.

Then another crrraaack. But this time, Mama  Duck didn’t say, “Ooooh,” she said, “Awww man!” However, she was wrong. It was her eggs!

“Peep! Peep! Peep!” filled the air.

Dada Duck came over and said, “Those are so cute.”
