Such a fun bloghop! Thanks Emily and Melodie. Here is mine…

It’s just the thing I want.
I can see the giant lollypop right in the doorway of the shop. Its brightly colored swirls make my mouth water. Mickey and his friends stare at me from the wrapper. They’re just daring me to eat them!
I’m holding Angie’s hand while the crowd pushes around us. But Mom told us to wait here. The worst part of being in a family with five kids is waiting.
“Angie, I want to go in there.” I pull on her hand and point at the shop.
“No way,” she says. “Mom told us to wait.”
Now I start pouting. It’s not fair. I still have five dollars. Five—whole—dollars! I could probably buy a million giant lollypops.
Mom is taking my sisters to the bathroom. They will take f-o-r-e-v-e-r!
There are lots of people here. Angie’s watching the parade, but I’m too short. All I can see are lines of bums, fanny packs, and strollers. She lets go of my hand and starts clapping. When it drops back to her side—I don’t grab it.
I’ll be really fast. She won’t even know I left. I wait for a second to see if she will notice she doesn’t have my hand.
I take a small step back to see if she will notice.
Then before she can stop me, I turn and run.
Hehehehe J Is it truth or fiction?
