Laura really wished she could be anywhere but the ground. She went to Kroger’s to buy apples, but From Cloud to Cloud Soda caught her eye. She read: this will make you jump from cloud to cloud! Warning: If you drink too much, you will never come down from the air. Laura bought the soda and went home. She opened it up and drank it. Yum! It tasted like homemade brownies with whipped cream on top! Suddenly, Laura felt very light. She rose up and up and went through the roof. She was flying! She jumped on a cloud and flew down, except she couldn’t fly.
Oh yeah, she thought. I can only jump on clouds. Sarah bent her knees, lifted them up and jumped. Below her, she could see grass, buildings, water, and much more. When she landed on the cloud, she smiled. She jumped on a cloud, then another. This is fun, she thought.
She glanced at her watch. It was dinner time. She came back to her house and hid the soda in her room.
