Christmas Friendship

The Dove was so beautiful - One of the prettiest things Karen had ever seen. Gracefully flying through the prairie - She needed to catch that bird for her daughter, Eve. Eve was only 4, but she loved birds. This would make the perfect Christmas present. “Just a little closer,” said Karen, as she held the box just a foot away from the dove. “Got you!” she said. She had finally got the dove in the box. Trying for so long, she had almost given up. She laughed as she walked out of the field and to her car. She started driving to the pet store to buy bird food and a cage.

The next day, it was Christmas. Karen’s whole family was there. They were all sitting in the living room, with the Christmas tree in the corner. “Eve,” Eve’s grandmother said, “Why don’t you open the first one. I think that one over there is from your mother.” She pointed to a large red gift. Eve picked it up and shook it with her ear by it. “Don’t do that!” her mother said, “It’s very delicate.” “Ok.” Eve answered. She took off their bow and opened the gift. Her face lit up as she saw a dove in a pretty bird cage. “Mommy! Daddy! Look! It’s a little bird!” She said with excitement. Everyone smiled.

The day after Christmas, Eve was home alone. Both of her parents were at work, so she had to take care of her dove by herself. “I think I’m gonna name you... snowy.” she said to the bird. She stared at it for a moment before realizing that she didn’t know how to feed it. Or give it water. Or how to let it out without it escaping. She didn't know how to take care of it at all. She ended up putting some seed on the counter and letting snowy out of her cage. But then, before she knew it, there was bird poop all over her face. “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!” She screamed. The bird then ate the seeds. Eve was still screaming when her neighbor, Mrs. McCathern Heard the scream and came over. “What Happened E - Oh.” Mrs. McCathern said. She took a paper towel and started cleaning the spot where the bird had crapped on her. “You know,” She told eve, “The dove is supposed to symbolize friendship.” “Then, are we friends?” Eve asked. “Yes. I guess its does. Now let's start trying to take care of the dove.” She said as they started laughing

The End.

I'm pretty new too, so I don't think you can really learn much from me, but here's what I try to keep in mind when writing a story: When writing, think as if your the reader. What do YOU see in a good book? Try to spread out the information your trying to give widely. People can only take in so much at a time. Don't add to much dialog. try to be describing the plot when possible. And finally, have the characters act normal. What would YOU do in THEIR shoos?
