A Rare and Unusual Guest
A Special Guest In Black Tuxedo
On one hot and drowsy afternoon, I felt really sleepy, when I almost dozing off, I head someone calling at the door. I opened the door and I was really surprised that a special guest in a black tuxedo visited my home without my invitation. I was surprised with the visit of this special guest. I have never met him before and yet suddenly he appeared in front of me. My surprised was followed by a happy feeling. Why? Because he brought joy to my family.
He was wearing a black tuxedo with a fashionable yellow bow-tie on his back. It made him looked smart and handsome. The first impression that he gave me, let me think that he probably came from a royal family.
He is very special and is totally different from others. He is the most special cricket that I have ever met. Yeah! He is a cricket.
