My parents and I walked to the park to have a picnic. My dad asked me to go get some firewood for the bonfire. Then I came to a river and I saw shiny quarter in the river that I wanted. I fished it out with a stick. I fell in the river but I got the quarter out. I felt a tingly feeling that went through me. I went to the bank of the river. I bent down to pick the stick up and saw my hand disappearing. I was walking back to the park realizing that my whole body turned invisible. Then I thought I don’t know how to make myself visible again or how long that I will be invisible for. I wonder how I can tell my parents that I’m invisible. This story is how I explained to my parents how I became invisible.
