It was Halloween night and Jake and Carly were getting their costumes on for Halloween. They were so excited! They wanted all the candy but also to meet their new baby cousin Maggy. Carly was the most excited. It would be her first time going on a plane. Well it’s just a tour guide. Jake had already gone on a plane for a school trip. ‘’Mom, are you ready cause I really want to meet Maggy’’ said Carly. ‘’Yes I’m ready,’’replied mom. After that, they went out the door. On the way to the car their mom totally forgot about the Halloween baskets for the tour guide! She had to rush inside very quickly. Once she finally found them, she had to rush outside very quickly again. ‘’Okay, now I’m ready’’, said mom.
2 Hours Later
Jake and Carly were asleep when mom turned around to say that they were at the airport. Soon they woke up. But when they did Carly was so excited but she was also kind of tired, which was very good because she had to be very cautious around Maggie. Once they got to the airport, Carly and Jake finally got to see Maggie. Maggie was asleep at the moment, so unfortunately Carly and Jake couldn’t hold Maggie. In a few minutes she woke up. But suddenly a whole row of chairs just flipped over! Everyone who was sitting in the chairs were injured.Then something else terrible happened, all of the flights were delayed, the noise was awful and everyone argued with one another. It was like someone made it all happen. If so, who could it be? I looked over at Maggie to see if she could give me a clue like in the movies. But it didn’t work. Guess what I saw it was a sentence that said ‘’give me the power to take control of the world’’. That gave me a clue, it was all Maggie! I can’t believe it! My baby cousin was a BABY CONTROLLER.
