Personal Narrative

The Butterfly

By Mark L.

One day I saw a beautiful butterfly. It landed on the windowsill just as I opened the window.

Guess what happened next! That butterfly flew right into my house and upstairs. I followed it right into my mom's room. It landed on her head while she was sleeping.

I tried to capture the butterfly. As I got close to the bed, it flew off my mom's head, and I landed on her. Boy, did I get in trouble!

I caught the butterfly and put it outside.
