It was a nice sunny day in Afghanistan. The sun was bright and shiny over the houses. It smelt like fresh bread that came right out of the oven. There was a boy next to me named Adam. He moved his mouth and spoke to me. Adam had nice black straight hair, he was 1 inch taller than me and had nice green eyes. Adam was wondering where the fresh bread scent came from.“Hey there, Do you know where that bread scent is coming from?”. Adam asked me in a smooth way with some shivers. I replied “ No, no I don’t sorry”. We sat at a bench and got some cold drinks.
We talked about how we might be related or if we have anything in common. We both like football a lot, and we also enjoyed cooking. Cooking is the best. We went to my house and made some chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen. My family really likes chocolate chip cookies. We then played some football at the field. We enjoyed our day a lot, I then asked him if he wanted a night over at my house. He said yeah sure why not, We went to sleep fast.
The next morning, Adam and I made breakfast for my family. We made some nice crunchy grilled cheese, waffles, pancakes and a sweet huge red velvet cake. We all had breakfast together as a big family. We were laughing and having so much fun. Adam looked like he was having a lot of fun too. We then went outside and played a game of hide and seek with Adam and my siblings. I was the seeker, I counted to 30 and went hunting for them.
(Wind blowing) The leaves were flying all over the place, I saw someone run across my face. I was so frightened but, I still went to check if they were still there. I went to check and no one was there. I was scared at first until someone said my name. “Swaimah” Someone whispered. I was so scared that I screamed and ran away. As I was running away I heard footsteps behind me. When I went to look There was no one. Then Someone said “run now or I’ll kill you”. I didn’t run because I was tired and There was no one behind me. As I took a step forward,I screamed “HELP ME”

First some questions
Answer the following questions about Seventh Grade
What Background information do you learn about Victor?
Victor is in seventh grade, He likes a girl called Teresa, He doesn’t enjoy maths, He has a friend called Micheal, He speaks Spanish and English.
When the boys scowl, the girls look at them. What might the girls think?
Because if the boys scowl the girls will love/like them. The girls will all fall in love with the boys. Girls love when boys scowl.
What obstacles are getting in the way of Victor making Teresa “his girl”?
Him allowing anything that Teresa needs help with, for example: Teresa needed help on her French homework and Victor said yes he would help her.
How does the tension increase now that Victor and Teresa are in the same class together?
That Victor can impress/show off to Teresa how good he is at French. Victor can help Teresa with the work and be a good boy.
Why did the teacher turn his back and walk to the blackboard?
Because Victor raised his hand and said he knew how to speak French but he actually couldn’t speak French at all. The teacher then went to the blackboard and read out some French words and told the class to repeat after him.
The French teacher, Mr Bueller realises that Victor is faking his knowledge of French, yet he does not let on about it. What impression does Mr. Bueller’s action tell you about him as a person and as a teacher?
Mr. Bueller as a teacher he sounds cool because Victor didn’t really know French and Victor thought it was a good idea to say some random words, Mr. Bueller didn’t tell Victor that he was saying random words, Mr. Bueller was basically not embarrassing Victor.
I think Mr. Bueller is a good person, Because he has been through what Victor has been through, so I think Mr. Bueller is a really good and motivated person.

Restoring Old Dolls
I worked at the doll factory that restored old dolls. One night as I was working late at 3am, I came across a strange doll. It has shiny golden locks and big glowy eyes that seemed to follow me as I moved around. And its red lips appeared to be hiding a smile. I carefully inspected for defects but couldn’t find any, it looked as good as new. So, I put it inside a box. Then began working on another doll. But all of a sudden, I noticed the glass fog up.
My heart skipped a beat and my body became as hot as lava. Before I could do anything the light turned off. “Isabelle,” it whispered my name. “ I am alive, You can’t find me, You’ll soon be gone” She let out a mysterious laugh. I am really frightened and standing there like I’m frozen. I heard a clicking noise coming from the glass box, That I added the doll in. That was when I lost it and sprinted to the main door. As I tried to open the door it was locked! There was nowhere out. In front of me appeared that same doll with a wide grin on her face.
“Hahaha, Now what are you going to do, You’re alone with me, Nowhere to get out” She screamed. I, WAS, FREAKING, OUT! I went to find a window but then, As soon as I touched the window, It sharded. Glass separated everywhere and, out came some black smoke from the window and filled up the whole factory. There was smoke everywhere and I couldn’t see anything. And as I turned around the creepy little doll popped out into my face. I jumped in fear and screamed my lungs out. I was super scared that I bumped my head onto the wall, I fainted. The little Doll never did anything. All she did was give me this medicine. It tasted like honey mixed with some pepper.
When I woke up the doll was smiling and giggling, saying “Oh my god! Isabelle you’re awake, now it’s time for you to come with me to my secret room”. I stood up and followed the doll. As I was following her I felt really different. I didn’t feel like my normal self, when I looked down I was wearing some sort of doll clothes. As we entered the room there were lots of doll clothes, shoes and wigs lying around the room. I was confused for a while and I saw the doll pushing me forward. She gave me some clothes to wear, I then went ahead in the bathroom and changed my clothes.
I looked in the mirror and I looked BEAUTIFUL! I have never looked this pretty before! I was so happy jumping around with excitement. I exited the bathroom and showed the doll my clothes, I told her I loved it. “Hey look at me, I look so beautiful with these clothes on. How do you think I look?” I said with happiness.
“Oh Isabelle you’re beautiful! Now come and wear this wig and these pretty shoes” The doll said. I went to the doll and she put the wig on for me. As I looked in the mirror again I had brunette hair with some highlights. I then wore my blue sparkly shoes that had glitter on them. I was dancing around with joy. The doll put some makeup on me and I looked even more gorgeous. I was wearing a blue dress with white flowers, a brunette wig with highlights, some sparkly blue shoes & Beautiful blue glittery makeup! I was super happy and weird at the same time. I think that pill she gave me changed my personality!
I don’t know what to do, I started to think about how I fainted and what happened. I looked in the mirror one more time and I screamed. “ AHHHHHHHH! YOU TURNED ME INTO A DOLLLLLLL!!!” I screamed my lungs out. I went back into the bathroom, changed my clothes, wore my shoes, took off my wig & washed my Makeup Away. I ran and saw my boss, Anna. I lost my breath and couldn’t talk, Anna was freaking out. She asked me what happened, I explained everything to her outside. She was so confused and felt so sorry for me. I told her I am not working at the factory anymore. She then tried to convince me to stay. I said sorry and I left.
