The Magic Lucky Penny

By: Owen
" Come up close and I'll tell you the tale of the time I found a magic lucky penny" Grandpa said.
"One day Otto and I found an almost 100-year-old penny and we brought it inside and put it on the kitchen table. I went upstairs to change and Otto went to go help mamma with canning the apple butter. When I came back downstairs the penny was gone. And, to make matters worse Otto had cut his hand canning and couldn't help me look for it. I asked Rosie to help me and she had a scared, mischeavous look in her eyes and quickly said no. I asked her if she knew where it was and I got the same response... a quick no. And, after years and years of Rosie testing my mental skills, experience finally came to help... for once. Then, I knew, don't ask me why, but I just knew that Rosie had taken that penny and hidden it. But where, where would she hide a penny? I had no idea in the world where it was but, that was up 'till that moment when I got it. But, I didn't need to look anywhere else. It had magically popped into my hand" Grandpa told us. "And, I also learned not to trust my thinking every once in a while,because that one I did too much work for nothing." Grandpa laughed.
'' But, then the next day I lost it again and this time Rosie had nothing to do with it... as in it dissapeared in my plain sight. And, yet again, it came back into my hand without me doing anything. Right at that very, moment I decided that it was a truly lucky and magical penny even though it was 96 years old. Then again that could have been the exact thing that made it magic.Oh, and I forgot to tell you about my guess that it was just a machine malfunction that it had my very detailed face on the back of the penny.
"But that's another story for another day"
Here is the sequel for the magic lucky penny: The penny machine malfunction mystery
