Pearl, 6th - Virginia
She had never believed in the midnight garden. Yet, she was trekking up this mountain. The never ending darkness consumed her, wind blowed through her auburn hair. Oh she was so full of self pity. As she climbed the flowers grew, higher and higher till they reached far above her head. The first signs of the garden was an earthquake. The ground shock, the wind screamed. Her hands slipped and she fell back down the mountain, until she felt something grasp around her body, suspending her upside down. Trying to find her savior she gazed around, but no one was there. "Up here yu’ big lump" screeched a loud voice. Slowly her head turned upward, and there was a gigantic flowery face. "Yu' welcome hun." It said as they moved up and up the mountain. It plopped her down just in front of two golden gates, "bye' bye Ms." It said tipping a pretend hat. Ok then.
She opened the gates. Light flew around her as she stepped into the garden.
