Writing a bio for me is hard because I am myself and I could go on and on about how I think of me but would that be correct in others eyes? So I guess the only word I can really use to describe me is Bree and let my writing do the rest.

Just a small challenge.

I swung my knapsack around my small shoulders.
There were just a few more things left.
And then my sister ran into my room.
"Are you insane?" she asked me, quite rudely.
I considered the question and replied, "Yes, quite."
"You better drop that bag right now, brat."
"It appears, dear sister, I am running away."
At this she narrowed her eyes and glared.
"You can't just get up and run away!"
"And why not?" I asked her with defiance.
"Well- because- because it's unnatural!" she spluttered out.
"Well is being insane all that natural then?"
"I..." she faltered and then said, "Certainly not."
"Then I suppose I am unnatural and leaving."
"Well how long will you be going away?"
I smiled crookedly and decided to tease her.
"For years upon years, until we're both old."
"Old as what? Old as having gray hair?"
"Old as having white hair!" I retorted grinning.
"Well you'll come right back- you can't survive!"
"Survive without what?" I asked, and she frowned.
"Well, food, and a house, and- oh, water!"
"I will pack up a tent and food."
"Well how could you carry water then, hmm?"
"I will drink from streams and the rain!"
"So you're really off then? Leaving me here?"
Thinking she must feel awful, I took pity.
"Well, I'll be back one day with riches."
"Gold? You mean gold, don't you?" she asked.
"I don't know yet. No promises!" I declared.
She soured a bit but then seemed content.
"Well, if you promise, I suppose I won't."
"Won't tell on me?" I asked for confirmation.
She nodded sagely, as rare as that was.
And so for a moment, just a moment...
My sister and I finally, finally got along!
 
Every line must be eight words and no more.
