The story continues from this beginning:
Dumonde wants to do something special for his dad for Father's Day, but his mother tells him that his father has to go out of town to an anthropology conference over Father's Day weekend! Dumonde is stomping around and yelling about how he hates his dad's job. Angry Cloud is having an affect! Dumonde's mother knows that a Hope Plant Baby could help in this situation. What happens next? Write the rest of the story.
Dumonde's mother hurried into her bedroom to wake her Hope Plant Baby. She quickly brought it into the kitchen where Dumonde was angrily kicking the wall, and yelling about the unfairness of life.
Hope sprang onto his shoulder and said rather crossly, "Don't you ever look on the bright side of life?"
Dumonde stopped kicking the wall and shouting.
"Have you ever heard the phrase, 'every cloud has a silver lining'?" continued Hope. "Just because today is Father's Day and your dad can't be here, doesn't mean you can't do something special for him! In fact, now you have more time to prepare a surprise for him!" Hope bounced onto the floor and began jumping around in excitement, "You could do all kinds of stuff! Bake cookies, make cards..." she trailed off.
So for the rest of the day, Dumonde and Hope planned how to make his dad feel great when he got back!

Kayla - 11 - Canada
Mark kept his eyes on the clock. Only five seconds 'till the door would barge open and Lila, the baby sitter of doom, would enter the house. Mark paced the floor with his hands behind his back. Then it happened, ding-dong, the doorbell rang. The door blasted open with hot air rushing in with Lila. She shut the door behind her and smiled an evil smile down at Mark. Mark gulped.
"Good bye, Honey," called Mark's parents, as they opened the door to leave.
Mark clung to his dad's leg. "Don't leave me," he moaned.
Mark's dad shook him off and left.
Lila glared at Mark. "Now go to bed!" she screeched. "I'm not getting paid to look after a twerp like you."
Mark stumbled to the stairs. It wasn't fair! Getting paid to watch TV, ugh!
Lila sat on the sofa down in the living room and plugged in her new Babysitting video game. "How to Torture Your Clients" was the name of the game.
"Let's begin," the voice boomed on the TV boomed. "First, don't read your client a bed time story. Now let's practice." A picture of a little girl and a baby sitter appeared on the screen. "Can you read me a bed time story?" Lila pressed the B button on her controller and the baby sitter on the screen said, "No." The kid began to cry. "Good work," cracked the TV voice.
While Lila was busy occupying herself with the game; she didn't notice Mark sneak downstairs. Mark was good with computers and he knew exactly how he could fix this mess. He carefully did some fixing with the wires and plugged in a different video game. The screen clicked to a voice saying, "Now give your client cookies."
Mark chuckled at Lila's confused face.
Lila shrugged and called Mark. Mark zoomed to Lila and Lila said sweetly, "Mark, you can go ahead and eat all the cookies you want."
Mark grinned at this and raced to the kitchen. He took a bite out of a chocolate cookie and kept his eyes on the clock. It wouldn't be a long time 'till his parents were home.
