Here is Maddi's shot at writing a silly short story.

The Time Machine
Walking all the way to my dad's lab, I cross the road over the bridge and then take the bus the rest of the way. When I arrived at the lab to see my dad the time was 7.31. Dad had told me to will arrive at 7:30. I was late! He told me to come fast so I can see the big MACHINE!! He called it... the "time machine". I ran to over to look at it. It was shiny, with a chair in the middle of it. Dad told me to stay behind the red line but I didn't.
I looked behind, and in front of the machine. I asked dad if I could go inside, but he said "no son it's too dangerous’’. I had the grumpiest face ever. Then when he wasn't looking, I ran in the Machine and turned it on and "WOW"! I went to a different world.
When I saw a different world I started to cry. Then I heard some more crying. I looked behind me and saw my dad's WORKERS!!! I ran over to see them. I asked them what happened. They said that they had been testing if the time machine works. but they end up staying in the middle of nowhere as well! I was so MAD that I pushed a rock and it broke. They told me that if we get a computer chip that was super powerful, and we plug it in the machine. We can go back home . So we started my journey to find one. It took days, nights, and more days, and more nights. Finally When we arrived I grabbed the chip and it teleported home. When we got home I gave my dad a beating.
