Falcon

By Isaac

I was climbing up a mountain when a falcon swooped down and pecked my hand. It was a brown one with a sharp orange beak. My hand slipped of the rock and I fell down. When I fell down on the ground I felt the pain overcoming me. I was too hurt to move a muscle. When I finally stood up I came back home.  When I was inside I saw the falcon again swooping outside. I was angry at it for slipping me off the mountain, so I went outside and tried to shoo it away, but the falcon just pecked my hand again. But this time he landed on my hand. When he was on my hand I noticed it was pretty nice. After 1 year it was a well trained falcon. That is how I got my pet falcon.
