Rhea is 7 year old 1st grade student of  Fales Elementary School in Westboro.  Rhea’s intersts are in dancing, reading, writing, playing soccer. She loves making friends and is quite popular in her school as all the other grade students too know her by her first name and come over and talk to her.She also loves to challenge herself.

I was getting ready for school. I was having my breakfast when my Dad said “I am going to shave and take bath. Okay?” So I agreed. He went to do both of those jobs. After about 4 minutes, I heard footsteps coming down the stairs.

I got terrified. My heart was beating so fast I couldn’t move at all. I took a deep breath, in and out. I still felt terrified. So I walked slowly to see if it was just my dad. I went upstairs. It was not my dad! He was already in the shower. I went  down stairs to eat the rest of my breakfast. I was thinking that there was a stranger hiding in the small room. My eyes were wide open and my teeth were crunched up. My whole body was so rigid.

When I was done, I went to my room. I prayed to God. I heard about 8 more steps, then I went upstairs to take a bath. When I was out, I saw my dad. My emotion turned from terrified to glad. I felt calm. I was thinking it was a bird chirping. I found out it was just a clock ticking.
