Ana was 8. She lived in the city very far from the beach. Her dream (wish) was to one day go to the beach and experience (see) the warm sun, warm water and sand on her feet. Ana lived with her mother and they had no car. Her dad left them when she was only 2 years old. Ana was always happy when she saw the pictures of the beach.
Ana went to school. That year she met (past of meet) a new student called Mary. Ana and Mary became very good friends. They were always playing together and talking about the beach.
When spring break came, Mary told Ana, “I am going to our beach house with my family. Do you want to come?”
[When spring break came, Mary told Ana that she was going to their beach house with her family and asked if she wanted to come.]
“I need to ask my mom first,” Ana said.
Later that night, Mary's mom phoned to invite Ana to the beach house. Mary's mom told Ana's mother, “You are both very welcome to come with us.”
Ana's mom knew that her daughter, Ana, wanted to go to the beach. So she said, "Yes." The next day in the afternoon, they drove for 5 hours and arrived at the beach house.
It was dark when they arrived, and everyone was tired.
Mary's mom told Ana and her mom, “We will go to the beach after breakfast tomorrow early morning.”
Ana was too excited (very happy) and felt butterflies in her stomach (she felt happy). Ana and Mary both went to sleep. Early in the morning, Ana was woken up by her friend, Mary, who told her, "hurry, let's go take a peek at the beach (let's go and take a look at the peach)."
Ana felt scared, but she went along with Mary. They started walking to the beach.
Ana did not know how to swim, but she went ahead and started walking into the water. Ana felt the water getting higher and higher and soon she started to sink (drown; go under the water). Ana was trying to swim, but wasn't able to swim. Mary saw Ana's hand over (above) the water and tried to reach her. Suddenly Ana woke up and realized it was a dream.
The next morning, Mary woke her up and they all had breakfast th at morning. Ana enjoyed (liked; had a good time on) the beach that day and it was the most special day ever (at any time) with her mom. Ana's dream came true!
