OMAR THE TURTLE
My name is Omar and I’m a turtle. You would think that I would be on a beach, or by a pond, or a lake, or a river. I am not an ordinary turtle. I was born to help people. I can talk, laugh, jump, and do many things that humans can do. My life almost seems magical to me. One day, I opened my eyes and I was in a park. Children were playing and grown-ups were sitting on the benches talking. A young boy named Ben was tapping on my shell with a stick. He kept saying, “move turtle” ”walk turtle”. I yawned and said, “excuse me im enjoying the sun”. Ben’s eyes grew wide as he dropped the stick.”you talked”, he said in disbelief. I smiled and said, “of course I did”. “Tu-Tu-Tu-Turtles don’t talk”, he stuttered. “I talk and I also like the sunrays so go play with the other children”, I replied. “What is your name Mister Turtle?”, he asked. “My name is Omar”, I said. With that having been said, the young boy Ben lifted me up and carried me to the entrance of the park were the children were now gathering.
I have been Ben’s pet for the last four months. I’ll tell you some of the things that happened in our lives.
