100 signed a law. 28 got more votes than 100, but 100 got more elecdrol [sic] votes. The law is that bosses have to pay more money to people that have families. And even more money to people that have children. 100 has a daughter named Chelsy. It is Chelsy's birthday. Some people are plotting against 100. Guess what - 28 is one of them! It's in every newspaper. Chelsy was screaming. They tried to get in last night. The Secret Service just barely stopped the.
Chelsy has a new bed.
One of the secret service is a spy on 100. He lets the rest of the gang hang out in a room in the white house.
100 couldn't sleep last night. Chelse tiptoed out last night.
Shy caught a spy closing the door. Tonight Chelse got [indecipherable] She hid behind the door.
When the gang came, she listened carefully to what they said. Then she wrote on a piece of paper she brought. They said, "Let's try to get him tomorrow." That was enough. She tiptoed out of the room. The next day she ran to her father's office. She said, "Father, father, today the spies want to get you."
"How did you find out?"

Just then Celse turned around her father was not there.
Molly said she was in the kitchen. So Celsey ran to the kitchen. Where was olly?

15 lived happily as she lived.

That was the first real story I wrote. It took me a whole month and I was really, really proud of it -- other people were journaling to the daily prompts about whatever, but me, I was grinding away on the story of 100 and his daughter
Chelsea. I think it's really stood the test of time, don't you?
