A Beautiful Journey

“Huff, huff” she finally reached the top. Young Penny had always been looking for something challenging. She zeroed in on climbing up a mountain top. Of course, most of the wise people in her family told her not to attempt it, but she was adamant. And this not to waste. She explored most of the caves in this crooked mountain before reaching the top. She reached there as the sky was turning an orangish brown colour with shadows begin cast all around. As the stars came out, she brushed her hair back thinking about her journey. It was so beautiful!
