â€œSage, watch William while we go buy some food.â€ my parents tell me.
â€œBut Iâ€™m only eight!â€ I protested. â€œAnd heâ€™s already one!â€
â€œYouâ€™re older!â€ they persisted. â€œNow GO!â€ I sighed. â€œI guess Iâ€™ll do it.â€ I thought to myself.â€ Suddenly William jumped and ran towards the ice cream machine once he saw it. Then he ran out of sight. I ran to look for him. Unfortunately, William was a pretty decent hider.
â€œOkay.â€ I thought to myself. â€œFirst step, call 911.â€ Suddenly when I was just about to run to the front counter, I heard a PLOP, the sound of ice cream spilling. â€œWILLIAM!â€ I screamed. â€œDonâ€™t eat ice cream without paying for it!â€ But, he ate a whole cup of it. I grabbed him before he could cause any more harm. Then when I was sure things couldnâ€™t get any worse, my parents came back and asked me, â€œWhat happened? We told you to watch Williamâ€¦â€
I confessed the whole thing. They sighed and took us home. â€œWell,â€ I thought to myself, â€œI am lucky I didnâ€™t lose William forever. Heâ€™s a great brother!â€
