Adventure Essay, Research Paper


As I walked into the building I felt my heart pulsating in my chest. My body

temperature rose until my face was flushed and my hands were cold. My whole

body shook as in an earthquake. I could feel my heartbeat travel all the way down

to my feet. I told myself to pull it together. In five hours this would all be over.

As I walked I seemed to draw the attention of strange people. They sized me

up and down and led me down a long hallway, up some old wooden stairs and

into a room. They told me to wait there until someone came to get me. I looked

figure out what the boy was saying by reading his lips. They quivered as they

spoke in a shaky voice. Finally I figured out what he was saying … “Lollipop.”

That was the first of many adventures as I sold candy at the Marlborough

Country Barn. I was excited because it was my very first job, but that excitement

was quickly replaced with the screams and cries of little children begging their

parents to buy them candy, or the mad rush of cleats running over to my small

counter to decide what candy they wanted as a reward for winning that afternoon’s
