    1. the lady in pink arrives ... no one knows who she is or where she came from. She doesn't seem to fit in to this family who is carefully plucking the fruit off the trees. She seems to be in a hurry and drops her basket on the little hound. The young man beside her is also careless and keeps upsetting his baskets as well. Or is it just the wind that is picking up before the storm which is begining to brew upon the rainbow colored sky?

  12. The girl in the purple dress her name is Elizabeth. She has a really big family and is only 7. She wishes to be tall and strong like her other sibling but most of all she wishes she was older the oldest. She is weak and gets to do nothing as the youngest child, she dreams at night of being older and not the youngest. So one night she see the first star and starts to chant "Star light, star bright.first star I see to night, I wish i may, I wish I might have this wish I wish tonight." The star starts to glimmer. "i wish to be the oldest sibling, the strongest sibling." The star glimmers more and more and more until its the next morning. She goes to her mirror she screams in her mouth. Pleases add on.

  13. It's the one time of year that the growth magic comes around our part of town. We own a peach orchard. Not just a ordinary peach orchard. Our special peaches are made for potions to fix curses and jinxes. One time a bottle spilled on my dress. That is why it's violet-ish. "I see the magic coming." My mother says as the sky ripples with all the colors of the rainbow. " It doesn't look right." I say to my mother as black clouds appear. Thunder rumbles. " GET DOWN KATRINA!" my older sister shouts as I see lightning appear in front of me. The last thing I see is a bright flash of light...

  14. The little girl in the purple dress is named Emily. One day her family goes out to pick peaches. Emily is quite shy and likes to be with her mother a lot. That is why she is standing behind her mothers back.

    1. I know that my peaches give the people joy and money to send the children to school. I dream of the day when I will stand alone in silence, when no one will come to visit.....or do I? Maybe I need to rethink that dream, what do you think? I need tree advice!

  19. It looks like everyone in the picture, maybe a family, is working to gather some food and fruit. The person that is sitting down looks like they are on a break. It looks like he or she is eating a peach. The dog looks like its having fun just playing around with the peaches. The little girl in the purple dress looks a little shy and may be the youngest. - Josh

  20. My name is Sniffer. I am the dog of the family. I am a Rhodesian Ridgeback, and my back is always in pain. Every day my family and I go pick apples and peaches, and they make me carry the baskets on my back. I LOVE to go fruit picking, but I think it's kind of cruel what they do. Oh well what do I know, I'm just a dog. Please add on.

  22. See the girl in the blue skirt and orange top, that's me Nasha. I have a huge family and we live on a fruit farm. We aren't poor but were not the richest. All we do in our family is pick fruit, and after awhile its tiring. My dog lulu is the greatest dog ever. He carries the baskets of fruit that we pick to the house to be made into jam. I feel bad some times because they are heavy baskets. When I grow up I want to get away from fruit and fruit trees and go to the city to get away from my town.

  37. OUCH! I think, because I can not talk. I had just woken up from my little cat nap when that rich family that comes 3-4 days a week came and took all of my other brothers and sisters. I am plucked off of my home and into what I think is a little human hand. I am tossed violently into some sort of basket. After a while of getting drilled with my siblings I get use to it I doze off again. When I open my eyes I see my worst nightmare. My siblings getting chopped up by a big knife and I am next. I think my last thoughts before getting sliced in two. Am I going to get made into pie or cobbler. Who am I?

  38. This reminds me of Rue from the Hunger Games. She is in District 11, picking in the orchards like she has done every day of her life. Rue is the smallest one in the purple, but this is when she is younger. She dreads everyday in the orchards, and her family is very poor. She is always tired, and she has to work very hard each day even though she is only 7. She just wishes she could stay at home and play, or escape from District 11. Unlike District 12, 11 has very secure fences which are heavily guarded. Poor Rue, she doesn't know that one day, she wont be here.

  41. I think that the guy in the green shirt wants to to have a food fight and is just waiting for the next move so he can throw the apple. It seems like it is a nice warm summer day and the others around are his brothers and sisters. Picking apples could have been one of the chores they had.
