This is the completed Story Game of "Margaret's Pets" that you all did an outstanding job in authoring.
Margaret is curious about all of her friends pets. Some have dogs and some have cats. Some have horses and some have squirrels that need their nuts and snakes and chickens, but poor Margaret doesn't have any at all!
She had always wanted a pet, but her dad says no. He thinks pets will make her lose her mind because it is so much work to take care of all the animals. But she decided to get a pet rock of course!
Little did she know that pet rocks require so much time and attention. Would she have been better off getting a different kind of pet which would make her life easy, she would have never opted for pet rocks. However as her fate would have it she has her pet rocks and has to learn to care for them and be happy she got them, she will name them and have fun with them and live happy ever after. ♥
But living happy ever after wasn't in the cards. One of her pet rocks did something awful. Her pet rock escaped late at night while she was sleeping. The rock climbed out a window and headed off on a new adventure on the boat, or those were his intentions, however her pet rock ended up in a bar called the rockin' rebel. He met a cute little pebble that was big trouble.
She said, "Hi, my name is Sandy." He replied, "My name is Rocky. What do you say we go out and get something to drink." But Sandy wanted to go to the beach instead to see the sunset. Rocky agreed, and they hung out with a biker gang called The Rolling Stones who ended up getting busted by some under cover cops.
The police called Margaret to come bail Rocky out of jail. The biker gang had been in a lot of trouble with the law, and since Rocky had been caught hanging out with them, his bail was set high. Margaret didn't have a lot of money, but Rocky was her pet - she'd made a commitment and she wanted to do the right thing by him, so she borrowed money from a local loan shark and went to the jail to fetch Rocky. When she arrived, she found that Rocky had drastically changed. He was wearing a leather jacket now and there were tattoos and piercings all over his little body. He looked at her and said, I'm so sorry I let you down. I'll make this up to you.
Rocky did just that too. He got a job and worked hard to pay back the bail money. He never went to court as the charges were dropped against him. The loan shark got arrested and that ended any future payments. Rocky had already paid the loan back and then some.
The years have passed and Rocky and Margaret are still together. Margaret now has many pets. Not only does she have Rocky she has lots of cats, two donkeys (Joe and Smoke) and a dog named Ande. Many of us already know Marg of Margs Animals. Go pay her a visit and meet all her precious babies. I'll also bet she never even knew this story was going to be about her.
