Okay, just one more thing from our chocolate study, I promise. 🙂 Grace’s assignment for this one was to write a short story about waking up to discover she had been transformed into an M&M. Here’s what she came up with:
“I’m falling!” I shouted, thrusting my arms out and pulling myself out of sleep.
“I’m not falling,” I mumbled. I reached up to wipe my eyes, but found I could no longer move my arms. I frowned, trying to pull my arms out from under the covers. I soon realized that I didn’t have any arms! I started panicking, flailing any limbs I had. Suddenly, the smell of melting chocolate filled my head.
I tried turning my head, but instead moved my entire body. A warm, gooey substance trickled down my back. Slowly, I realized the chocolate-like aroma was me. I was made entirely of chocolate! Better yet, I was really fat with a big “M” printed on me. I rolled my eyes.
“Don’t pass it on they said,” I hissed. “No one can turn you into chocolate through the Internet.” I flipped myself over so my back wouldn’t melt. I then noticed it was very dark. Looking around, I saw dozens of other M&Ms around me. Strangely, I was the only green one.
The walls around me looked like they were cracked and falling until I saw they were made of paper. Suddenly the ceiling ripped away, and a huge hand reached in. It grabbed me, pulling me toward my gruesome death. I squeezed my eyes shut. I felt myself get closer and closer when, finally, I opened my eyes.
I was back in my bed, limbs attached and candy shell gone. I passed my palms against my forehead.
“Okay,” I groaned. “No more chocolate before bed.”
