Gingerbread Man – read by Ellie
Last December, my class had heard stories about runaway gingerbread men for a whole week. I didn’t believe a word of it.
I said, “They can’t run for real.”
I hope you’re right, my teacher said.
We were going to bake our cookies that day.
That afternoon, my friends and I poured in the flour, sugar, and some dark sticky stuff called molasses and mixed it all together until we made dough even though my arms got tired.
I rolled it flat and cut it in the shape of a gingerbread man.
I gave him raisins for eyes, a cinnamon drop for a mouth, and chocolate chips for buttons.
Then I put the gingerbread man in the oven to bake.
When I opened the oven door, the gingerbread man jumped up and ran out the door shouting, “Don’t eat me!”
I chased him through the school, down passed the 7-11, and through Linkou outlets mall until I cornered him. It began to rain.
Heavy typhoon like rain.
A bird chirped over to the gingerbread man and said, “jump on my tail, I’ll cover you in my nest.”
So the gingerbread mand jumped on.
Halfway up to the nest, the bird chirped, “You are too heavy for my tail, jump on my back.”
So the gingerbread man jumped on the bird’s back.
Soon, the bird said, “You’re too heavy for my back, jump onto my beak.”
So, the gingerbread man jumped on the bird’s beak.
But as soon as they reached the nest, the bird flipped the gingerbread man into the air, snapped his mouth shut, and ate the gingerbread man.
And that was the end of the gingerbread man.
Maybe he shouldn’t have run out of my oven.
