Each week, The Sentinel publishes stories we receive to prompts in Kids World and on www.cumberlink.com. This week’s Kids Speak Out prompt was “I found a treasure map, but it didn’t lead me to gold. It led me to ...”

“I found a treasure map but it didn’t lead me to gold. It led me to a dog! It was silly and I named him Romeo. I liked him so much. His favorite toy was a hot dog. Yesterday, Romeo stole my ice cream. He liked it so much. It was tasty. So, I got another and he took it AGAIN! I was mad so we went back home for a nap.”

“I found a treasure map, but it didn’t lead me to old. It led me to a hole. The hole looked so very deep. I could not even see the bottom. I got ready to jump then bounced right down. It took me three days to reach the bottom of the hole. When I walked through a door, a sign caught my eye. The sign said ‘Welcome to 2035.’ I was amazed to see a sign like so. I soon noticed all the people were animals, and animals were people. Plants had legs, and food had arms. I was so freaked out, I thought I was going to faint. How was I going to get back to 2018? I looked around and found a time machine shop. I got one, hit the button that said 2018 and went back to 2018.”

“I found a treasure map, but it didn’t lead me to gold. It led me to Santa. He gave me lots of presents. I went home and unwrapped them.”

“I found a treasure map, but it didn’t lead me to gold. It led me to an abandoned barn in the forest. I walked in the abandoned barn and I saw five horses. Then I walked out of the abandoned barn. I saw two cows in a pasture. Then I opened the gate and the cows ran away. Then, I walked in the barn and opened the stall doors and the horses ran away.”

The only place that there are flying dolphins are in ... in .... in my imagination. Am I in my imagination? This is cool, but how did I get here? Wait, I fell down a canyon. Was ... was ... was that a portal? To be continued.”
