The Talking Hippo by Desa

The Talking Hippo

One day I was at the zoo and I saw a hippo. Then I told my mom look at this hippo. She said “It is pretty but fat”. Yeah I know. Then it talked it said” I am a girl named Sasha”. Did that hippo just talk? “Yes I did”, said the hippo. Then I went around the zoo to find one of the zoo keepers. Then I found one um miss “ Can you come see something “what is it”? Well its something about your hippo. “ Ok so what is the matter” oh just come with me! Then when we got to the hippo’s spot the hippo said “Hi zoo keeper”; said the hippo. OH MY!!!!! That hippo really did talk am I dreaming or what? That was really weird well thanks for telling me. When the zoo keeper started walking away I ran over there and said can I keep the hippo? Then she said sure because I don`t need a talking hippo” said the zoo keeper. So how do I get it home? I will give you a trailer to take it home. Then after we got the hippo at our house we got it in our pool. There were 4 more hippos at the zoo. Then I jumped into the pool and started riding the hippo. When I was done I went in and dried myself off. When I was done we ate dinner and it was sloppy joes. When I was finished with my dinner my hippo and me both ate some snacks. Then I asked my mom if I could sleep outside in a tent. Then the next day I played with Sasha all day. Then Sasha said”My stomach hurts. Then we took to the vet then she said she is going to die. Then she died. So we buried her.Good bye Sasha.
