You know how most people think hamsters are cute,well Sara here didn’t really agree. SECRETS Sara looked at the time from her desk in Mrs.Shelley's 4th grade class. It was 7:30, Almost time for Emily to come~ Sara thought. Sara was always in for morning recess,she wasn’t a wild and active kind of girl.”Ding,Ding,Ding.” Sara heard the bell ring, just then Emily came in holding a giant cage. Emily had been the class pet monitor for the weekends, which meant she had to take hamster home for the weekends.Sara never got to take it home she didn’t want to take it home. Just then Mrs.Shelley walked to the front of the room. “Class as you know,Tuesday is the start of our winter break and I’m afraid I can’t bring Hammie home for winter break.” Hammie, was the class pet hamster.” So I have decided that one of you will get to bring Hammie home for winter break! Doesn’t that sound fun?” Ohhhh Sara felt like she had been punched in the stomach.Having a pet hamster was bad enough, if she got picked, she would have to cancel her 3 week trip to Korea! Just as Emily gave the cup that held the name of her classmates and herself,Sara began to shake with fear. As Emily slowly reached to pull out a name, Sara crossed her fingers and prayed that she wouldn’t get picked. Emily finally pulled out a name, it read, “Sara Lekins Barber”.Sara froze.”Well,then Sara since today is monday,will have plenty of time to ask your mother and get prepared.
