"The Ride on Pegasus"

I looked through some of my old school papers and found a "story" I had written on June 3, 1981 (I was almost 9)  Here it is, complete with missing punctuation and misspelled words!


The Ride on Pegasus

         One night when I was sleeping I heard a tapping sound on my bedroom window.  I turned to see what it was.  It was Pegasus!  He seemed to be saying "Ride me."  At first I was afraid but I finally said softly "O-o-k-k-ok."  So I opened the window and got on Pegasuses back.  Pegasus led me all the way to the big dipper so we could get a drink.  He stopped and let me get off him.  We got a drink of water and went to sleep.  I woke up and I was in bed.  I could hardly wait to tell my mom and dad.

What a wonderful imagination you had, and could put in down on paper. Very cute story.

So was this about a dream you had?

I don't think it was an actual dream. I have another story about Pegasus and Orion I wrote about the same time , too.
