This is the story of how my pet turtle (TurtleTaub) ran away...yes turtles can run away. So, let's start from the beginning. I found him outside in my backyard next to the trash bin and he became me and my brothers first pet, we kept him in a cool little enclosure we made outside and everyday after school we would play with him and feed him strawberries and worms. Several months go by, get off the bus ready to see him and my little sister tells me she was playing with him and let him out and forgot to put him back, i immediately ran outside searching. Everyday i would go out side and put worms and strawberries in front of the trash bin hoping he would come back to where I found him and imagining he would there. Eventually I came to the painful realization that he wouldn't come back. :'(

I used blue to show loneliness and sadness. I used orange to show the joy and warmth he brought to me.
