Maggie's Race Against the Clock
Chapter 1. Maggie had been watching the bushy-tailed creature for almost an hour now, and she still hadn't made her move. She knew she had to act fast, but she was paralyzed with indecision. The squirrel perched on the edge of the tall tree seemed unaware of Maggie's presence, its beady eyes intent on something in the distance. Maggie felt her heart pounding in her chest as she steeled herself to take action. She took a deep breath and stepped forward, reaching out to grab the little animal.
