Maria Patterson is 10 years old. One day she was playing baseball with her friend Niki
Pilot. Niki was not really sure how to play baseball. “Catch!” Maria shouted. “I will try my best,”Niki said.
Suddenly an eagle came out of nowhere. Those two girls weren’t paying close attention to the eagle because it was high above the tallest tree in America. “Whoosh,” the eagle
grabbed the baseball and took it all the way up to the highest tree in America. The eagle left the ball on top of the tree and went near the Adirondack Mountain. Maria was very scared to get the ball back. “Why don’t you buy another ball?” Niki said. “I can’t because I got this baseball last Christmas, and my parents said it was for $19.99!” Maria was worried. “Wow that cost a lot of money! I can’t believe it!” said Niki surprisingly. Maria went as high as she could to climb the tree, and she reached the ball, but she couldn’t get down. Niki had an idea to get her down safely. Niki thought of tying a rope on a branch, and climbing the tree so she could get Maria down safely. Niki did what she was thinking, but she fell down 3 times. Niki was crying very much because she was hurt by falling. She never gave up for her friend. Niki was brave enough to get Maria down, so Maria invited Niki to her house for dinner. They had a great time!
