Personal Narrative: Metea Park
The wind swept through her luscious strands of red hair, making it almost impossible to see the road ahead of her. Miles of country road before her as she sped alongside grazing livestock. The radio dial roared through the peaceful terrain from her car. Her soft pale skin glistened from the bright sunshine in the sky. The speed demon inside her could not help but accelerate as the tread on her tires deteriorated farther and farther. The fresh summer air was exhilarating, with the windows down all the way she was smiling ear to ear. She felt an immense amount of freedom though she was not alone in her 2005 blue Honda Civic. Her scruffy, black, English springer spaniel puppy accompanied her in the passenger seat as if he too was human. The two of them could not wait to arrive at their desired destination of Metea Park. Every Sunday evening in the spring, they would travel the 30-minute drive for just an hour or two of freedom. She placed her Civic in between the two bright yellow lines upon arriving at their happy place. When the small car unlocked its doors the spaniel went berserk in the front seat. Tightly gripping the blue fabric leash, that perfectly coordinated with his collar, she careful stepped onto the sweltering black asphalt. She cherished this time away from the world as the 45-pound puppy …show more content…
Returning to the passenger seat, her puppy dog’s tongue fell down over the edge of his mouth just as he began to establish his contentment once again. The worn out friends drove by the park’s crystal blue pond. The snow white swans glided graciously through the steady movement of the water. The tranquil touch of Metea park was left behind in their tire tracks, along with the adventures and freedom that came with it.

    Imagine a warm, breezy afternoon deep in the heart of Dixieland. Picture an old farmhouse nestled peacefully in the woods beside a clear, sparkling creek. A rocking chair rests lazily on the back porch with a floppy-eared Bassett hound at its feet. On the table beside it is a glass of cool, refreshing lemonade and a radio tuned in to the local country station. You stop to listen…..…

    She sat stroking his dirty coat until he knew he was safe in her arms. After a warm bath and a large bowl of food, she gently put the drowsy puppy in his pen and waited until he fell asleep. As the darkness outside began to disappear with the rising sun, she sat stroking the sleeping dog while thinking of the horrors he must have been through. As the clock on the wall rang in the hour, her mind was sent back to reality. She made her morning rounds and unlocked the door just slightly before eight. Throughout the day, customers came in looking for the perfect puppy to adopt and make their own. Many gathered to look at the new puppy but no one stayed long once they noticed it's missing leg. The poor thing didn't understand what was happening but could tell that no one wanted to look at him. He saw many dogs of all shapes and sizes leave with new owners and finally understood. "They are trying to find a home for me," he said. But, as the day wore on and the sun began to set, the poor puppy was still curled in the corner. Darla closed the store and fed the rest of the animals. When she came to him, she stroked him softly saying "Maybe you can try a foster family".

The ATV’s motor roared loudly as we sped down the dirt path. Glowing brilliantly, the ATV’s red paint reflected the sunlight. We didn't slow as we quickly approached a crossing. Speeding and Roaring, a van flew down the road. Oblivious, we continued down the path to the road.…

    All four windows of that metallic black pick up truck covered in mud speckles were down. The sun illuminated the flawless sky that Sunday afternoon. Our vehicle was loaded up with my favorite blue pin striped beach chair, several kick balls, a cooler filled with water, and two of my best friends. There was Rosie, the redder of the two and who always seemed to have an endless supply of energy. The other is Ruby, a curly blond with a much lazier personality. Two golden paws rested on the back of each window sill as we backed out of the driveway and cruised down that dirt road. Long rose colored tongues and wagging bushy tails were hard to miss as I peaked through the rearview mirror. The speed limit sign showed 10 miles per hour but we were in no hurry. A mixture of Kenny Chesney blaring on the radio and the waves crashing in the background were the only sounds that could be heard. The water was blocked by tall bushes and palm trees and you couldn’t help but feel the sun beat on your skin from the cloudless sky. I’ve waited all week for this day, a day with no pressure or dead lines to meet.…

Clark waved at her and she stopped swinging. He sat on the swing beside her. He gave her a bitter sweet smile.…
