On my way to grandpa Pepper's place I wondered what he was going to give me, well I assumed he was going to give me something, as it was my birthday and he always gave me something on my birthday. Now today I was turning 13 and honestly I'm pretty excited, like it's not everyday you make it to your teenage years, right?
When I got to grandpa's house I was considerably interested as to what the present might be. Grandpa imminently set my mind to rest, for upon arrival he showed me to a large box and told me to open it, it was easy to see that he was excited, so I went up to it and pulled the card off, I opened the card and read it; it said: My dearest Katy, (I know I usually start my cards by calling you a young whippersnapper, but since you are turning 13, I decided I would show you the proper respect) Happy Birthday! Now I just wanted to caution you to be careful and not to take any risks, but you probably want to know what's inside the box, so I'll let you open it, enjoy!
Love you forever, Grandpa. XOXO
" Thanks Grandpa" I said and gave him a hug, then I turned and opened the box. Inside was a beautiful ten speed bike! The latest model, "oh Grandpa," I said, " its beautiful!" "Thought you'd like it." he said smiling, "I do, I do, its the most beautiful bike I've ever seen!" I gave him another hug and then turned back to my bike, "can I take it for a ride?" I asked, "nothing would make me happier." he answered, and so quick as I could, I had the bike out the door down the steps and onto the pavement, I climbed onto it almost reverently, but once on, I was speeding up and down the street; laughing with glee. I could tell Grandpa was pleased that I liked it so much.
When I went home I was still smiling, I had always wanted a bike like this.
I was not one of those girly girls, who wanted makeup for their birthdays and believed in faerie land, no I was more of a Tomboy, into books about the arising of evil and of spies with guts, who got chloroformed when they found out to much. So you can imagine that I was very happy with my new bike.
I showed Mum my new bike and she looked very impressed, but then she shook her head and said "he should have gotten me to buy it, he knows I get a personal discount at the store." "Pooh" I said "you know he never would have agreed, he's to proud" "I guess your right" she said.
So the challenge was that I had to open random pages of the dictionary and drop my finger on 10 random words. The words I picked are:
Try find them in the story.
