The Girl Who Lived with Purple Trolls
by Mia Robertson
Once there was a girl who had bright green eyes and flaming red hair who lived with purple trolls. She had no memory of her parents. The oldest troll and the head of the family taught her to eat like a troll, make beds like a troll and shake hands like a troll. But as Poppy got older she had to do more and more chores, and of course her little sister didn’t have to do any. The trolls were the last of their kind. One day she received a letter from an elementary school.
You are invited to Piewall School.
The next day she went to Piewall School. The troll family gave her tragic troll dust to transport her. She worked very very hard. BRRING! The recess bell rang. Children came piling out of the school.In the schoolyard there was a swing set, monkey bars and a playhouse. There was a chain link fence surrounding the schoolyard. Poppy swung from the monkey bars. When she got on the swings, the bell rang to end recess and send the kids inside. They did more math worksheets. Finally Poppy went home to the trolls.
When she arrived home, she had snack of salami because purple trolls only eat meat. Then she played princesses with her sister. After playing Poppy had a dinner of am burgers without buns. Then they plugged in their new tv with an orange extension cord. They watched a cooking show. Poppy was squinting the whole time because they bought the tv from an antique store and the picture was blurry. The purple trolls own an antique store. They disguise themselves as humans and use troll magic to transport back to their secret home cave in the mountains. At last Poppy went to bed.
The next morning Poppy found herself in an orphanage!!!!!! Poppy and the purple trolls were worried that someone at school would learn that she lived with trolls and harm them. So the trolls used their magic troll dust to send her away. Five other girls lived at the orphanage and were playing chess. So Poppy decided to join in. They were playing chess happily until a very tall woman entered. She was the head of the orphanage. They played chess for a few more minutes. They ate lunch and then played tag in field. Then they had broccoli, noodles and chicken for dinner. Then they slept in their bunk beds.
A couple months later her troll sister found another purple troll and got married. She had purple troll babies. Poppy created a community to keep purple trolls safe from humans.
