"Ma, when will dinner be ready?" I asked her. "in a few minutes, hon." she said as she stirred something. My name is Alice Margaret Efle. it was the 1700s, and my life had been good so far in my town, Gettsla. My Friends were perfect, although my home smelled a bit like a Chamber Pot. Completely expected and I got used to it. Gettsla was small, though. "ma, what are we having tonight?" I asked while i was putting food into bags. "Venision Stew, Alice Margaret." She said. "Yum." I said. Venision Stew. one of Ma's best meals. Harvest had just ended, and it was time to preserve food. "Alice Margaret, I need to talk to you, hon." "What ma?" "Well, you like the forest, right?" "Yes Ma." "Well, Pa and I had been thinking... we could move out of Gettsla and go live in the forest." I thought about that for a moment. Gettsla. My home. My friends. my town. "No, Ma. Gettsla is our home." She stirred silently and then she spoke. "Sorry, Ali. we bought a claim of land already." "Ma, how could you without telling me or Peter (Brother)?'" "Hon, we're leavin on Friday." no. no. no. no. no. It was Saturday. this was truly unfair. "OK, Ma." I finished my work and then sat down to eat with my family. "Alice Margaret, dod your Ma tell you?" Pa asked. "Yes, Pa." i said.
We were packed up and ready. moving to the forest. i couldn't get over us moving. my friends had all came to say goodbye. Slowly, the Oxen began to move. hands were waving goodbye. i felt as tear slide down my cheek. We were at the end of the road. goodbye, Gettsla.
