My Beautiful Dream
Last night I had a beautiful dream. I had turned into an alien. I flew my UFO in the sky. Suddenly
I saw some people playing in a park. They were very happy. I wanted to join them. So I landed in
the park and got out of the UFO. When the people saw me, they were scared. I said hello to them.
But they didn't understand me. After a while, only a kid came to me and asked, "Who are you?" "I
am your friend. "The boy got happy. He moved to my UFO. "May I play with you?" "Sure. You
can play in the UFO with me. "When we got into the UFO, it started to fly into the sky. Suddenly
it fell to the ground. I was scared and jumped up from the bed. Oh! It was a dream!
