Hi everyone! It's Ellie here, and today I have a post about Summer Yellow Labrador's nighttime adventure. Enjoy!
It was almost 11:00 PM, and Summer Yellow Labrador was still awake in her bed. On Boxing Day, her family moved to a town called Brambly Corners into a townhouse called Harebell Hall. Two other families lived in Harebell Hall, but she had only met one of them. The Tuxedo Cat Family, who had two twin daughters Lilliana and Rosetta who were 13. They were 2 years older than Summer so she hadn't really become friends with them. The other family were kind of mysterious to Summer, even though they lived right next door. They hadn't come out of their house yet, and Summer wasn't sure why.
Across the way, Summer saw Lilliana and Rosetta's light still on, and heard them bickering like always. Downstairs Summer's parents and Lilliana and Rosetta's parents were talking and laughing in the Tuxedo Cat's living room.
Summer went to go look out her window and lo and behold she saw a figure on the roof of the mysterious family's house.
Summer had always been very curious and she wanted to go check it out. She made none of the parents were paying attention and she stepped through the crack that separated the houses.
Summer use to be a rock climber and she carefully made her way up to the roof of the mysterious family's house.
She hopped on to the roof, surprising the figure. The figure turned around and gasped.
"Hi!" said Summer
"Umm.. who are you?" said the figure
"I live next-door. I'm Summer" Summer responded
"Oh.. I'm Isabelle Hopper" the figure said.
"Do you live here?" asked Summer.
"Yeah" Isabelle responded.
"Why do you never come out?" questioned Summer.
"How long have you been here?" asked Isabelle.
"Two days" answered Summer.
"Oh, that's why. My family just got back tonight from my Grandma Diana's house. We were there over Christmas" responded Isabelle.
"Oh! That's makes more since" said Summer.
Summer made her way down to where Isabelle was sitting on the roof.
"Why are you out here on the roof?" asked Summer.
"I like to come out here before I go to bed. I want to be an astronomer when I grow up so I like to find constellations and track movement in the sky" responded Isabelle.
"That's so neat, what constellations do you have so far?" asked Summer.
"I have only found Aquila the Eagle tonight" replied Isabelle.
"Can you show me where it is?" questioned Summer.
"Sure" said Isabelle pointing to the center of the sky.
"It looks like a kite" said Summer.
"It does" replied Isabelle.
"Do you have any siblings?" asked Summer suddenly changing topics.
"Yeah, I have a younger sister named Katerina, she's only 4 months old," responded Isabelle, "how about you?"
"I have two younger brothers Berkeley and Bailey and a younger sister Marley" Summer answered.
"So your the oldest, like me!" smiled Isabelle.
"Yeah!" laughed Summer.
"Well, I have to go to bed now. It's almost midnight" said Isabelle.
Had it almost been an hour? Summer turned around and Lilliana and Rosetta's lights were out, and it sounded like the parents were wrapping up their conversation.
"Okay, I'll see you tomorrow then?" asked Summer.
"Yeah, see you tomorrow!" said Isabelle.
Summer waved goodbye then crawled back off the roof into her own room.
As Summer was about to go to bed, she realized she had a new friend in Brambly Corners! Hopefully she'd make many more too!
Thanks for reading the post! See you in Brambly Corners!
