Sample Personal Narrative When the Door Creaked Open I was nine years old On Saturday afternoons I liked to go exploring in the woods behind our house I was what you would call adventurous My parents would always tell me to make sure I could still see the house from wherever I was which only made me want to explore far enough away so that I could not see the house I would get a little thrill when I turned around couldn t see my house and rushed back the way I came hoping I wasn t really lost this time One cool Saturday afternoon I walked into a new area of the woods It had to be new because I stumbled upon a little house I d never seen before I peeked in a window by the front door That s when I smelled the porridge It smelled like cinnamon and butter Then I knocked on the door and it creaked open It was so quiet I could hear the tick tock of a clock so I knew no one was home While I was there I decided to have just a little of the porridge One bowl was too hot and one was too cold but one was just right and I ate it all After that I walked around and noticed the family pictures on the wall Inside the picture frames were grizzly bears As I was standing there wondering if bears really lived in the house I realized I was feeling a little sleepy I sat in one chair that was too hard and one chair that was too soft before I found a rocking chair that was just right I fell asleep I was still in the chair when the bears came home I heard them come in I heard them rush into the kitchen I heard them come stomping toward me Then they saw me and I saw them I think we were all in shock Papa Bear hollered What are you doing in our house I finally got the courage to move and just ran off as fast as I could At nine years old I felt grown up I felt grown up enough to go on adventures I felt grown up enough to make lots of my own decisions But I still did a lot of little kid things To this day I like to remember that moment when the door creaked open and imagine I made a different choice Lesson 10 Unit 1 31
