The Lost Key

Last week at school, I couldn’t find my key. It was the key to my house, so I was really worried. How could I get in? I looked for the key everywhere. I looked in my bag, in and under my desk, behind the

teacher’s desk, and near a window. I thought maybe

it was under something on my desk. So, I picked all my papers up and looked under

them. But I couldn’t find my key anywhere! I was the last student left in the class. Even the teacher was gone. My friends came down the hall and saw that I was upset, so they helped me search. I thought I left it out in the

hallway, but it wasn’t there. I was worried I lost it down the toilet! How could I ever get it back if it was down the toilet? My friends and I looked

everywhere, but we couldn’t find the key. Then, one of my friends told me to check in my pockets again. Oops! To my surprise, I found out that my

key was in my pocket! It was there all along, but out of sight. I felt very silly. Now, my friends tease me about “losing” things. They say I can


even see things right in front of me!
