Chapter 1

Once upon a time, there were two brothers named Haily and Mr. Lee.They were hunting for a treasure.

While hunting for the treasure, they accidentally knocked their heads together. And when they found the treasure, Haily accidentally kicked the treasure chest into the water. Mr. Lee asked Haily, “Why did you do that?” Haily answered, “I don’t know…”

Mr. Lee jumped into the water to look for the treasure chest. Mr. Lee didn’t find the treasure chest, but he found a key. When Mr. Lee went back to the shore, he couldn’t find Haily.

Then Mr. Lee saw a hole. He looked into the hole and saw Haily jumping to throw the treasure chest up into their truck. Haily threw the chest the wrong way and it nearly fall on the ground! Mr. Lee ran to catch the treasure chest. Luckily, Mr. Lee caught the chest before it reached the ground. Then Mr. Lee put the treasure chest inside their truck and they drove home.

When they arrived home, Mr. Lee opened the treasure chest using the key that he found. Inside the treasure chest they found a red computer and a brown laptop. Mr. Lee chose the laptop while Haily chose the computer.
