A story created and illustrated by the Third Graders in Room 508.
One day, high up in the clouds of Heaven, Kevin was baking a little cake in his easy bake oven. Everyone uses easy bake ovens in Heaven because they just use a light bulb for heat. They’re very safe. Today was a very special day. A new boy was coming up from earth. Kevin didn’t have many friends in Heaven because most people were older, so he was very excited that a new kid was on the way. Suddenly, the fog and mist began to swirl as someone was coming up. That’s when Kevin saw him. It was a little boy, but he wasn’t dressed in a nice white robe like Kevin.
This little boy was dressed in a red suit. He had little horns on his head and a long, swishy tail. Kevin went up and introduced himself. “Hello!” he said. “I made you a little cake. It’s nice to meet you.” “Cake!” laughed the little boy in red. “I hate cake.” The little devil took the cake and chucked it out through the gates of Heaven where it fell back to earth.
“That was fun!” he laughed. “I hope it lands on some little kid’s head.” The bad little boy picked up a cockroach and ran over to a little old ladies’ house. He slipped under the door and waited. “Aaaaaah!” screamed the woman. “Haha!” said the little boy in red. “That was fun.” Then, he grabbed Kevin’s hand and drug him to Walmart where he stole a pack of toilet paper. “You didn’t have to steal that,” said Kevin. “Everything in Heaven is free.” “I don’t care,” hissed the bad little boy. “It was fun.” Then, the boy in red toilet papered a bunch of mansions on the main drag.
“You’re bad!” said Kevin. “You shouldn’t be doing that!” The little boy in red then placed whoopie cushions on all of the chairs at the Welcome Table. When people came in for lunch, they sat on them and were soooo embarrassed. “Hey!” shouted Kevin. “You shouldn’t be in Heaven! You don’t belong here.” “Boo hoo hoo!” cried the little boy in red. “I was just trying to make you like me.” “Don’t be silly,” said Kevin. “I already liked you! I mean, look at your outfit! It’s so cool! I love that swishy tail! And the horns, they’re rad!” “But…but I threw your cake down to earth…” The little boy in red was wiping tears from his eyes. “I wasn’t mad,” said Kevin. “I made it for you. I was just trying to share.” “Awwwww,” said the bad boy. “Yes,” laughed Kevin. “Sharing is caring.” Suddenly, the ground begins to quake. Everything was shaking. Up, through the clouds, was a giant red head with horns! It was the Devil!
“Hahaha!” he laughed, “finally, I’ve made it all the way up to Heaven! Now I’m going to steal all of your air conditioners!” “No!” said God. “If you steal all of our air conditioners, our ice cream will melt. You can’t have them.” “Wait!” cried the little boy in red. “Dad…you gotta stop this. You can’t just come up here and take all of the air conditioners. I have an idea. Why don’t we just share them? After all, sharing is caring…” “Ugh,” said the Devil. “I think I’m going to puke. But, maybe you have a point there.” He looked over to God. “What do you think, Big Fella? Can we share the air conditioners?” “I think that’s a grand idea,” said God. “And, maybe we could even be friends. But wait,” he paused. “Are you still a Pittsburgh Steelers fan?” “Yes!” laughed the Devil. “That will never change.” “Then, we cannot be friends. But, go ahead and take half of the air conditioners.” And so, the Devil backed up a big Walmart truck up to the gates of Heaven
and loaded up a bunch of air conditioners. Soon after he was gone, everyone noticed that their ice cream cones started melting.
The Devil had taken ALL of the air conditioners. Because he’s bad. He’s the Devil.
