I was lying in my bed, fast asleep. Dreaming pleasant dreams. Suddenly I awoken by a strange squeaking sound. My heart began to thump so loud it sounded like it was running a marathon. Trying very hard to ignore it, I tried to go back to sleep. Soon the sound stopped but then as soon as I relaxed, I began to hear it again. Oh no. I thought Please don?t tell me that?s a mouse in my room!
Bolting out of my bed, I ran to my parent?s room. ?MOM! There is a mouse in my room!? I whispered loudly. My mom got up and went with me into my room. We listened closely. SQUEAK! Squeak... I screamed and my mom burst out laughing. ?Pauline! It?s just two raccoons fighting outside!? I sighed. You know we DO have Mice in the house. So you never know?
