Stories by Keenan and Moriah

 A couple weeks ago, I asked Keenan and Moriah if they'd like to make up stories and I'd write them down.   This is what they came up with...
(The punctuation is terrible.   I was just typing as quickly as I could while they talked!)

The Beautiful Princess Who Got Found
by Moriah Dooley (age 5)

Once upon a time, there was a knight who was named Jack.   He found a beautiful princess in a beautiful castle with flowers all around it.   She did not have a prince, so he took off his knight clothes and she had some prince clothes and she gave them to him and he thought he could be her prince.   And then her witch mom had come and she did not like that she had found a prince.   The prince said I have found her in the castle and thought I could be her prince.    And the witch tried to get the prince to go away but he said, no, no, no she needs a prince.  Then the witch said, Oh fine!   You just stay with her until I die!   He said, I’m never going to go away!   Then he thought that we are not married, I can’t be your prince if we are not married.   Then he had already known a beautiful place that they could get married.  There was a beautiful little path and there was flowers on the sides of the path.  And he thought, but how will we get people to see us?   And the princess said I’ve seen wedding without people, but the people knew me and I was taking pictures and there was nobody there.   So we can just have a wedding with nobody but us.   And then he realized you do not have a dress.   And then he knew right where to get one and then they went there and they went back to the castle and put in on her and then went back to the place where they were going to marry.   And there was a man standing right there and he thought I will do the talking.   And then he said his stuff and they got married and went back to their beautiful castle.   And they lived happily ever after.  And the witch never came again.   The End.

The Pirates Who Saved the Coyote
 by Keenan Dooley (age 7)

One day there was some pirates named Keenan, Moriah and Caleb.  They were looking for land when a whale jumped up and bit the side of the ship off!   They started panicking and said “Oh no!  What do we do?”  Moriah said, “Let’s use our lifeboat!” and then Keenan said Good idea, let’s go!   They said Oh no, now we’re going to have to buy another ship!   Then they jumped in the lifeboat and started rowing to land.  
The whale jumped back into the water and made a big wave.   A bit of water got into their boat.   When they got to land, they heard a kind of growling sound and they were like Oh, oh!   And then they got out of the boat and looked around and saw an ogre.   They ran as fast as they could away from the ogre and they bonked into a gigantic python!    It chased them back to the boat and then they rowed away, and waited in the water for a while, and ate some snacks (peanut butter and jelly sandwiches).   Then they went back and made sure that there was nothing close enough to eat them.  They saw a key and thought there was some treasure somewhere on land.  They looked around and when they found it, they opened it and inside  a coyote jumped out!   They thought it was mean and they got swords out but then it started crying because it didn’t want to die and then they found out that it was nice so they brought it back to the lifeboat and then they rowed back to their home.
