A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

A new little puppy
Wagging its tiny tail in the air
It’s my turn to hold it now
I go to my older sister
And try to pull
The small brown creature
Away from her
She won’t let it go
It is not fair
My older brother comes
And in his hand is a long green hose
I’m afraid to look at him now
I feel like he is just trying to get back at me
For being so annoying while I was crying,
I really wanted to play with that dog though
He pauses at my sister for a quick second
Nods his head
Then leaves her,
With a smirk on his face
He stands in front of me
For what seemed to be an eternity
Little four year old me
And a little rose red ribbon
In my short brown hair
And my cute pink shirt
That matched my sister’s
Terrified at what was about to happen
Then pulls the trigger from the distance
As much as it could go
And soaks me
I was dripping wet
And crying more than ever now
Then all I saw was a bright flash
I look up and see my uncle in a soft blue shirt
With a camera in his hands
I start top cry even more
This time I’m mad
So I chase him around the front yard
My dad catches me and yells at me
Like I was the one who did something wrong
