about this story

I walked for a long while. I walked and walked through the branches and trees and found a lot of peace. The air was quiet and soothing, I found myself pondering many thoughts. I kept walking for a long time and soon found myself out of the forest. Beyond the edge of the forest stood a tall building, with many people outside of it. The peace in my soul ceased and the chaos set in quickly. A clown? Could it be? Wasn't I just alone? I walked up to the clown and he threw me a green alligator balloon. What was I supposed to do with this? I walked along the road, throughout many people and soon the sky fell dark. I kept walking though, for I was now alone again and things felt easy. I walked by many houses and came across a house all lit in Christmas lights, but I was confused; for it was only August. I was wearing shorts and sandals for god sakes. Why the Christmas lights? I thought the sight was beautiful, so I decided to stare for a long time. After minutes of gazing at the beauty, something furry ran up behind me. It took my breath away. I noticed a dog! The puppy looked small and dirty, as though it was lost. He cried to me, showing signs of distress. I pet the dog, for he was so cute! I decided to name him cooper. Although I wanted to be alone, I didn't mind his company. I actually sort of liked it. We kept walking for a while, and he never left my side. We walked all through the night, going no where fast but making our way. I felt connected to Cooper, as if I had known him before. We finally reached "McDog Run" which I thought was conveinent. McDog Run and I had just found a mysterious dog? Where could he have come from? We kept walking down the road, finding peace in every step. We found a river and sat down next to it, he took a long drink out of it. I layed on my back and watched the clouds pass as Cooper layed down and closed his eyes.
