Being a Seed, by Luke

I was sitting in my package when suddenly I got stolen. I felt someone running. I heard some police men chasing me. The police caught the thief. One of the officers bought me. Then he took me home. I was a cactus seed, of course. He put me in some wet soil. Then he watered me. Soon my roots popped out. Pretty soon I found my stem had bounced out too. It made me three inches tall. That was as tall as I got. I didn't grow any leaves. Instead I grew spikes. They were very sharp. I also grew this pretty little X shaped flower that was yellow. I like being a cactus!
