Beatrice vs. World CHAPTER 1 Author: wolfheart3325 Morning Part 1 Beatrice woke to the sound of her dog barking. “Frankie, it’s only-“ she stopped to check her digital alarm clock. “6:27.” Beatrice flopped back on her bed and closed her eyes. Almost immediately they snapped open again. “Frankie, it’s only 6:30!” Again she tried to go back to bed, and again her labrador prevented her from doing just that. “Frankie! Shut your mouth!” It only worked for about 3 minutes. “Fine,” said Beatrice, holding up her hands in surrender. “Fine. I give up, Frankie. I’ll get up. Whatever.” Beatrice got out of bed and dressed for school. Then she turned on her laptop, typed in www.storybird.com and began writing: Once there was a girl named Beatrice. She had a really obnoxious dog named Frankie. Beatrice lived in Indiana. It was mostly boring in Indiana, but one day something unusual happened.... She hit Save & Exit and closed her laptop. Well, she thought. Today is gonna be good.
