The Mummy
by Dana, age ten

Once upon a time there was a group of girls and their names were Dana, Laura, Nicole, Elyse and Rachel. They where good friends. They all went to ECP. One day they all went to France and they met up together they went summing, bike riding and they went to the castles of Paris. We all said it was very fun. We liked it no we loved it. Monday night we all went camping. And when we went camping Laura found the key a dead mummy just awoke so we went to the place where he was buried. And Laura, Nicole, Rachel and I found the book of the dead and while we were opening the book the mummy found us. And if you were there you could have heard a loud scream. So Laura read loudly and quickly. So we could kill him. And we killed him and he's dead. So we all got on an airplane and left. But we still had a sleep over. We had very good faith and still do. When we got home and tucked in, suddenly, we all heard the door open. THE END!
