The Magic Pool

One day, Evan and his friends, Zoya and Jamal, walk in the woods and find a magic pool.

They hear a strange voice say, "The water in this pool changes to whatever you want. Just shout out a word as you jump in."

"I'm first!" says Jamal.

Jamal jumps off the edge and screams, "MARSHMALLOWS!" Sure enough, Jamal lands in a pool full of fluffy white marshmallows.

"Wow!" says Zoya. "I want a turn."

Jamal comes out of the pool and the water is back to normal.

Zoya jumps in and shouts, "MONEY!" She lands in a pool full of dollar bills.

"My turn!" says Evan, as Zoya climbs out.

Evan stands at the pool thinking of what he might yell. Just as he is about to jump in and shout "BANANAS," a big bird flys above him and poops on his head. Evan is so surprised that he says, "OH POOP!" You can guess what happens then. Poor Evan.
