Rose Hey, everybody! Rose

 Well, here's the contest I promised you. The idea for this came last night, while my family reminisced about a doll I used to have when I was small. It was a nice expensive gift from a distant aunt of mine. I mean, the thing was really pretty to start with: I can remember it having a fancy pink dress and a glass face and little brown curls. You know, the kind you'd expect rich old ladies to have, I suppose. Everything was fine until I dropped the thing and its face shattered. Then my mom tried to fix it with a hot glue gun, and the results were horrifying. Looking back, I was never afraid of it as a kid, but my older siblings hated it.

It really made me think about how we view things when we're children, and was the inspiration for this contest. Now, enough boring background; let's get into the big idea.

Rose Objective Rose Write a piece from a child's perspective describing something terrifying.
