"The Turkey"
by 1
    It was Thanksgiving. We went to buy the turkey. The turkey knew she was in danger. She saw a sign on the wall. She kept hiding in different places in the store.
    Mrs. Turkey decided to make costume so people would not notice her. Mrs. Turkey's costume will be a human so she can look like everybody else. That way nobody will notice that she is a turkey. 
    Mrs. Turkey's plan worked. Now people think Mrs. Turkey is a human. Mrs. Turkey was invited to dinner. So Mrs. Turkey got dressed up for the turkey dinner and had Thanksgiving with the people. She ate only vegetables and pumpkin pie.

    When my turkey was passing by my house, she heard my mom and dad talking about Thanksgiving.
    "I have to get a disguise," she cried. I can be a human! I will order on my computer. Wit! I don't have a computer. I will use their computer. The next day it arrived. She sat in the barn thinking about Thanksgiving the next day. She hoped her disguise worked. The next day she got her disguise on. "I hope this works," she said again.
    She walked out the door and everybody said, "Who are you!" And she said, "I aa aa aa aa aa am Juileyes!" "Juileyes, do you want to have Thanksgiving?" they asked. And she said, "Yes, but I don't like turkey." "It's ok, we don't either," they explained.

    In the morning Mr. Turkey went on Facebook. His friend Kristy posted, "Thanksgiving is coming!" "Thanksgiving is coming!?" yelled Mr. Turkey. "I'm not ready for Thanksgiving," said Mr. Turkey.
    So he ran off to the costume store to blend in. When Mr. Turkey got in the store the turkey that worked there told him that a hunter costume was half off. "Really?!" asked Mr. Turkey. "Yes, Really," she said. So he grabbed the costume, paid for it, went in his car, and went home. When Mr. Turkey got home he put the costume on, looked in the mirror, and went outside.
    Some hunters came by and thought he was a real hunter. So they asked if he wanted to come to a Thanksgiving dinner with them. "Sure," said Mr. turkey. So they headed to the hunter's truck, got in, and headed to the Thanksgiving dinner. When they got there their family members asked who Mr. Turkey was. They said he was a friend and it looked like he hadn't eaten for days. "Well then let's eat," said one of the family members. So they ate, but Mr. Turkey's ham was so cold he asked how to warm it up. They said, "You can warm it up in the oven." "OK," said Mr. Turkey. "How do you work this thinhg?" asked Mr. Turkey. "Just twist the thing," said one of the hunters. So after the Thanksgiving dinner he went home and told his family what had happened.

    As I was in the woods on Thanksgiving I saw a man. It was a hunter. Then I said, "What are you hunting for?" "I think you should go because I am hunting for you," said the hunter. "I will go. I am running away from you," I said. "I do not want to get shot." "Run!" said the hunter. "Go! I think you should run as fast as you can," said the hunter.
    I will dress up as a pumpkin. They will not think I am a turkey.  They won't notice me. They will put a candle in me so I will light up. That will be a good costume for me. It will really be good to put in a house. They will say look at that pumpkin we put up for a decoration. It was mean of the hunter to try and shoot me.
    The disguise worked for me. I liked the disguise because it was good. I carved it out of a pumpkin. It kept me alive. My costume has worked so far. Now I will not be dinner. Everybody ate turkey but not me. The pumpkin decoration was the best costume. Then the I got out because they were done with dinner. At last I was safe. I was happy to get out of the disguise . I thought it would be good if I could light the candle. I carved it and I should light it. But I knew I had to leave.
    I wanted to leave and stop the bad hunters. I thought I should snatch their guns so no mean hunters could come after me.l The hunters should let the animals live. I will stop it now or never unless someone comes for the hunters . I will be waiting for you hunters. Then it will be okay. I will stop you.
