One day I was walking on the path of our street heading towards the park. While I was happily walking, I could suddenly smell something warm and sweet, like freshly made fudge. I used my senses to track down the smell. I kept walking and the smell was getting stronger. Whoosh! Suddenly I saw a mysterious brown person running past. I screamed out loudly “Hey, what is it?” My voice echoed around the whole street. I wasn’t going to be a scared baby and just stand there or run home. I was brave and wanted to look for that mysterious brown person. Whoosh! There it goes, the brown person darts past me again. My heart was beating fast. I kept running after it until I was out of breathe.
I could not run anymore so I stood there trying to catch my breath. I was trying to look into the distance to see where the brown person had gone. It was not far away so I ran again and reached my destination. The little person just stopped because it had nowhere to run. I had corned it in a dark street. I reached out to grab it. The little brown person had a tiny round head and thick body. It had small little M and M eyes. It’s nose was a freckle and its mouth was a strawberry liquorice. It had a jellybean belly button and no hair. It is a little Gingerbread Man. It smelt delicious and sweet. I was about to eat it but I stopped and thought for a while. I didn’t bite it because it does look like a little human. I wouldn’t like someone eating me alive. We became great friends forever .
