In the beautiful Robinson playground. Nancy a shy, timid, little girl is sitting on the swinger softly and slowly licking a popsicle wishing that the taste would be immortal; while it's melting, dripping to the ground,her white face disguises with a brown facial mask made of a strange, incredible cream. She twists her tongue like a roller coaster ride around her mouth to taste the delicious brown facial mask on her face.

Nancy is like a Christopher Columbus discovering and exploring this taste. Yummy! her belly is fill with butterflies, the taste is thrill to her mouth; causing the taste buds to explode like a 4th of July fireworks, for this new taste is enchant, impeccable and magical. No! her wish isn't granted, the popsicle has ended. The popsicle taste so great, Nancy almost eats the stick.

Nancy is drooling, her little brain can't process, the explosion and impact of this taste. She still sits on the swinger like a predator for its prey; seeking to attack more of the taste; after fill with unhappiness that the popsicle is finish and the desire to taste more. She begins to loudly scream and cry, alerting her mother who is sitting on playground bench watching her on the swing.

Suddenly, the clouds grows dark in the sky, the wind begins to whistle and the trees dance to its sweet tune then the rain falls. Nancy, mother name Elizabeth runs to assist her off the swinger and let them depart. At the back of the car,Nancy, is strap in her car seat heading home, during the driving the stormy rain beats on the car. While Nancy is crying and Elizabeth, splashes through the water on the road in the rain. After a ten minutes driving, they meet safely and wet at home.

Nancy clothes and face is dirty cause of the brown cream, she was eating at the playground. Elizabeth changes their clothes, then they are dress in their comfortable and dry clothes. Elizabeth sees the tears in Elizabeth little eyes.

This was a fun read. It flowed and felt happy. You may want to proof read it a little more but all in all it was very nice. I wrote a story called “Consequences” if you have a second I’d love it if you’d give me a read and a like if you enjoy it.
