Hi, I’m Claire, you will be hearing about my story of how I’ve changed in just one adventure. I live in a huge anthill in the dry windy desert with only one lake out of the whole desert with dead with dry plants, and bushes. The only thing you can see is sand and more sand with some plants and animals if you’re lucky. The one thing you can hear is silence in the empty desert but the desert is always changing. It could be windy one day and the next day it could be dry and motionless. My life was really normal for a working ant but I was always different. I was really normal I had brown eyes, brown hair, and average height. No one wanted to be my friend or talk to me, so I worked hard and was determined to be the best at work. So I worked my butt off until one day, the worst day of my life happened. The anthill was attacked by the other ants that were trying to steal the anthill also, they won.
[[Continue]]Then, they were looking for an ant to go out to find a safe place to live. But they had no luck until Claire had an idea. She was going to go on that adventure, she didn’t know what she was thinking. Something just clicked inside of her and she just knew that the adventure was for her. She was walking in circles and putting all her thoughts together, one thought came up the most. Now she was ready to tell the ants that were in charge that she was going to go on the adventure. As she walks up to them she plans out what she is going to say.
[[go up to them confident]]
[[go up to them scared]]Now that she is in front of them, she says, “I'm going to take the risk and go on the adventure, no matter what you say. I’ve spent my whole life working hard to push myself to be the best of the best and now it's my turn to shine.” It took the ants a long time of thinking, but they accepted and they even let her bring one person the go with her.
After Claire asked, she was thinking and thinking, “I’ve ruined my life now. I will never be the happy me that I always was, but then again I can start a new beginning when I go and no one will know me. This is the best choice of my life,” she thought long and hard as she packed for her adventure, now in excitement. She packs everything she needs from food to a bow and arrow.
[[next up]] As she’s walking back to her room she runs into her friend and tells her what happened. Her friend says “if you are going to be like this you will never be successful in life.” She runs to her room and cries the whole night.
[[next]] The next day she goes to work and gets made fun” I going to ……..” the other ants say in a mocking way. So after she’s done working she stays in her room after a long day and doesn’t leave not even to eat
[[continue]] The next day she goes back to her family hoping they have advice for what she should. They ask “Do you want to risk your life to be a hero or stay here wishing things would change? If you want to take the risk they do if you want to change your life for the better.” She turns to think. She another day and they still haven’t found someone to do it. But they need to find someone fast.
[[next-> pg]] Now she has to pick someone to go with her. She knows the perfect person to pick. She knows the person she picked can work as well as she can. The ant she picked was named Conner. Like Claire, Conner was also the odd one out, that's why she picked him. Now Conner will pack the same stuff for himself.
[[continuing]]Now it is time for them to leave as they say goodbye to their family and friends, Conner and Claire pause before they step outside to start their adventure and think about their life now. They know that it will never be the same ever again. So then they walk outside as they start their new beginning.
[[next->p4]]So she had thought long and hard for a couple of days and finally made up her mind. As she is going back to make her speech she hears the mocking again. And then goes back to her room to think because she is embarrassed to talk to them again. So she collected all of her thoughts and goes to talk to them. They accepted her proposal but they had one condition. She had to pick someone to go with her
Claire and Conner are on there a way to find the perfect place to live they are talking and they stop “Why did you pick me?” Conner asks. Claire avoids the question, she wanted to forget that just happened. They continue walking and he asks the same question, then She gives in and tell she tells him why.
[[next->23]]“ I picked you because you are the only one that I know that's worked hard and will try your best,” she says. They go on to the cold dry fine sand. Then they hear a yell in the distance so they follow the yell. At first, they didn’t see anyone or thing then they got closer to the sound and then they see it a beetle stuck under a rock. But they also see the other ant stuck in a spider web. They are thinking about what they should do.
[[help the bettle]]
[[help both]] Then they hear a yell in the distance so they follow the yell. Then they come across beetle that has gotten itself stuck under a huge rock and can’t get out. They have an idea to get water and spray beetle so he can slide himself out. So they find a cautious can get water because they can hold water they get the water and spray the water and the beetle is free.
“Thank you so much I can't explain how thankful I am, what can I do to repay you?” he says thankfully. As the beetle waits for and answer he gets all his things and sits on a rock.
The ants think about it and then they have a perfect idea .“You don't have to give us anything you just have to help us on our mission,” the ants say in a bold way. And so the beetle leaves to.
[[next->fg]]So they go on and continue walking. They have been walking for an hour so they decide to stop to take a break so they can eat and rest. By now it is the afternoon and the sun's going down so they set up a place to sleep and they sleep.
[[next->pd]] They choose to split and help both. So clair went to get some water to free the bettle. Conner went to the spider web to free the ant. So claire found a cautious and collected water so she can have the bettle wiggle out from the water.
Double-click this passage to edit it. Conner went on more to free the ant so he went up the tree to help the ant be free. So he was pulling the ant free then he got stuck. So claire had to help them outof the spider web. Then the ant thanks them and then leaves.
