The Story of the Unfortunate

by Eisei Kori, age 9
The Story of the Unfortunate Eisei is in fourth grade. He has a pet snake named Snake (it is a girl though). He likes jump roping, reading, and making crafts.

“Once upon a time, there lived a hobbit named Harold Bipins. He was twelve years old and was 2 feet, 4 inches.”

Once upon a time, there lived a hobbit named Harold Bipins. He was twelve years old and was 2 feet, 4 inches. His dad’s name was Gale Bipins, and he was 4 feet, 3 inches, and his mom’s name was Marisa Bipins, and she was 3 feet, 6 inches. They lived in a hut with four rooms: one bedroom, one kitchen, one bathroom, and one living room. The family was surrounded by a thick, gloomy forest. When it was Harold’s thirteenth birthday, and he was 3 feet, 1 inch, he decided that he was going to get a bike because he really wanted one. So he told his parents that he was setting out on a journey to get a bike. So he packed some cheese and some bread and set off on the journey to get a bike.

First, he went to the village on the mountain top and went to the bank for a loan.

Then, the bank said, “Under one circumstance. You must complete an obstacle course.”

So without a choice, Harold answered, “Fine.”

So the obstacle course started. The first obstacle was an obstacle called the jumper. In the jumper, you had to jump over three things, a roaring fire that is 3 feet high and then a chainsaw that is 3 feet wide and 4 feet high, but for that you get to use a trampoline. Finally, you had to jump over a 200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 foot high elephant. But luckily, the banker made a mistake and got a super trampoline that you could jump up to 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 feet high, so Harold got past all his obstacles in a flash. Did I mention he is pretty athletic? The next obstacle was called the dragon. This obstacle has a humongous lake full of salmon, so if you fall down, you get sucked into a whirlpool with a bunch of salmons into the underworld. So Harold jumped with all his might and made it across. Then the banker gave Harold a million dollars. Then Harold continued on a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long journey.

Next, he went to a bicycle shop that ran out of bicycles. This surprised Harold so much he fainted for ten hours!

When Harold woke up, he screamed, “Where am I?!”

Then he ran out of the bicycle shop, not knowing that the bicycles were delivered a few seconds ago. (Well too bad for him because he missed his first chance of getting a bicycle.) Well let’s get on with the rest of the story. When Harold left the bike store, he just realized he lost a chance to buy a bike and that the person at the bike store had stole all his money. Well I guess Harold was one of the most unlucky hobbits in the whole universe.

Harold had been guessing that the banker was going to going to come after him, so he went into hiding. He knew that the banker was going to put up flyers to get Harold. So poor Harold had to stay in a small hole feeding on earthworms. (That is disgusting.) Almost a year later, Harold got out of his hole. Then he realized that he was still wanted, so he got back into the hole and stayed there for twenty more years!

P.S. The only reason why he knew he was wanted was because there was a wanted poster right next to him.

He cried and cried until he filled up the hole, so he had to find a hole again.

He found the hole and said, “Yes, I found the hole.”

He lived there, and then he said, “I am done hiding. I’d rather get caught and escape from jail.” So he went to the outside world and said, “Bring me to jail.”

So he was sent to a high security prison in the middle of the desert.

“What have I done?” moaned Harold, as he slumped down onto the chair.

Then he realized what he most wanted was to get out of jail. Then he realized it was his birthday.

He asked the jail guard if he could get a birthday present, and the jail guard said, “Yes.”

Then the jail guard asked what it was, and Harold said, “Bike.”

He missed a chance to escape jail. (He could have said “my present is to get out of jail.”) He started riding the bike up and down and side to side and did a flip. Then, he started to think of a plan to escape the jail.
