Quick Write: Happy Ending

Once upon a time there was a duck, she was a single mom and had 6 ducklings to care for all on her own. She did her best to provide for them. The pond where they lived was quite polluted and she decided it was time to move to a new home with her babies. They began their dangerous journey through the city. They came to a manhole with a grate over it and she told the children to be careful where they stepped so as not to fall through. There are six of them and one of her and it is difficult for her to watch all of them at the same time. She turned around and only saw one of her ducklings behind her. She gasped and looked down the manhole trying to see if she could see any of her children. She was beginning to cry when she heard something to her right, she looked and saw that her children had detoured to the side of the manhole because they saw a puddle and they were playing in it. They all lived happily ever after. The end.


  1. That was a plot twist to me. I was expecting for her to see her ducklings down the manhole but I appreciate the cute little things having a happy ending in the puddles instead
