Narrative Writing: If My Pet Could Speak..

I quickly jumped from my bed. Straining my ears, to listen. I could hear someone talking and going through the fridge. An intruder, I searched my room looking for a weapon. Bingo, a baseball bat. I picked it up and tiptoed all the way to the kitchen. “Aha!” I shouted, but was caught completely off surprise. Standing there was not someone, but something. It wagged it’s tail and smiled at me. “Hi!” It spoke. I was about to scream. “Wait, wait! Don’t scream!” He said to me. “This is a dream, this has to be a dream and i’m going to wake up any minute.” I told myself.


“I knew that you were going to find out eventually.” He said carrying on searching through the fridge. “No! This is not possible. You are a Corgi dog and dogs do not speak. This is just my dream. Maybe if I pinch myself I will wake up!” I pinched myself as hard as I could. But nothing happened besides a red mark on my arm. “How is this even possible!” I said amazed. “Well to be honest, I don’t know either.” He replied.
“So how long have you been like this?” “Well as long as I can remember really.” He replied. “And, can all other dogs, you know, speak?” “Umm yep pretty much.” He replied. I fell back on the chair, shocked and well speechless! My dog could talk, my Dog could talk!! It was unbelievable, extraordinary! “Hey you know, could you do me a favour and not tell your parents? You know I don’t wanna get caught or anything.” My Human speaking Dog asked me. “Sure,” I replied back slowly. “I think you better go back to sleep now.” My dog said seriously. “Sure” I replied once again, not sure what was happening.

But before I knew it, I was back in my bed. Dreaming about things that didn’t seem extraordinary to me anymore.
