Special Powers for a Day

My name is Lily. I used to have special powers. This is how it happened: One day I went fishing; and I felt a tug at the end of the line. I thought to myself, "Yes! I have a bite!" But it turned out to be an ankle bracelet with only 50 large real diamonds, it's string just 100 karat gold spun by a princess. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention a little rainbow gem that shone in the sun. It wasn't much, but I tied it around my ankle anyway. As I cast my fishing rod I said to myself, "I wish this ankle bracelet was a fish." All of a sudden, I felt something flapping around at my feet. It was a fish!! Had I tied a fish around my ankle??! Then I realized I had just turned my new ankle bracelet into a fish! As I was thinking all this, the fish had squirmed off of my ankle onto the deck, and toward the edge of the water. I looked up from my ankle just in time to hear my precious fish plop into the ocean, never to be seen again. I still can't believe what happened that day. So much for the special powers.

My friends and I are on a trip through the jungle. As we get deeper deeper into the jungle, it gets darker and darker. All of a sudden we here the sound of battle drums and marching feet. We froze, then slowly, we turn around. No one in sight. Oh well, it must have been just our imaginations. Then, out of the blue we hear a tiny voice, "I'm down here you crazy humans!!" We look down and see an army of ants! They are shouting a war cry and have red paint on their cheeks!! In the blink of an eye they swarm all over us, knock us over are
