You Have Been Elected President

Hello, this is my fourth post on our Middle and High school linkup! I always wondered what it would be like to be president. I think this will be a very fun subject! But, like the last post, it is a harder subject to write about also.

White House Floor Plan

As I read the text on the screen of my email, ” Hello Blake, you have been elected president, please come to Washington, DC as soon as possible.” I sat there and thought “Why me, I didn’t even run for president?”  I packed a suitcase full of the items that I needed for the trip. When I opened my front door there was a limo sitting there in front of my house. One of the men stepped out and said “Hello Mr. President we are here to take you to DC”. I got in the limo and we drove away.

We drove for what seemed like years, but when we got there we were making our way to the White House when suddenly I hear a loud THUD and the car made a sound and stopped. The two men got out and one of them said ” Sir, I believe the car is busted.” I saw one of the men whip out a phone and dial the director of the Secret Service to relocate us.  When they arrived, we got in the helicopter they came in and they flew us to the White House.

I started adjusting to my new environment and making my office  and getting used to having a ton of work. At first it was exciting, I had a lot of fun doing all of the things I did. But what I disliked were all the meetings.  I would rather be looking around the White House and other things. My favorite part was when I got to eat, play, and do almost anything I wanted. But after a while, looking around the White House got boring too.  And all the other things were getting kind of boring.

One day my intern showed me the entrance way to the secret rooms below the White House… this was cool! He was a younger person, 14 at the most! He pulled a vase forward and the wall opened! Inside I could see steps that  lead us down.  The pathway was lit by small lamps when we got to bottom door, my intern stopped. I  asked him why didn’t he want to go in.  He said quietly “I don’t know why, but there is something about those rooms that I don’t trust” I told him ” If you’re not coming, tell me please, because I want to go in.” “Fine”  he said with a sigh, “let’s go”.

You have been elected

We opened the door and entered…there was a maze of walls at the other end of the room.  Immediately in front of us there was a small table with two of my cabinet members sitting at it eating. They seemed a little odd though.  They said  the maze goes on forever, of course, they didn’t mean it literally.  We made our way through the maze and on the other side, we found three doors.  Each one had a name on it, the 1st said [Warzone] the 2nd said [Armory] and the 3rd [Training]. I’m thinking… military training in the White House?  We went into training and saw many more members of my cabinet there with guns, Nerf guns that is…  shooting at targets.  We exited the room and went in the door for the armory.  There we found tons of Nerf guns of all sizes and shapes. We grabbed two of them, I grabbed a mega pistol and he grabbed a Lumitron.

We headed to the warzone.  We entered cautiously and I barely missed being struck with a vortex bullet as it whizzed by me.  I whipped out my mega pistol and headed into the mix.  All of my cabinet members were here having fun with Nerf guns. From that day on we always went down there and played with my other cabinet members during lunch.  Sometimes, if we didn’t have a bunch of meetings  we would even stay down there almost a whole day. My cabinet members became friends and it made us work as a team even more.

I had so much fun in the secret rooms but unfortunately my term as President came to an end. When my term as President was over my intern wanted to go to TN with me because he was so loyal to me.  I told him he should go back to his family.  I figured out his family lived in DC and he had visiting them regularly. I was glad. I  sadly left my friend and returned to Tennessee and my life went on normally.  I will never forget my intern, he has become one of my best friends.

Thank you for reading my post! I hope you enjoyed it. I also look forward to the next linkup!  The topic for it is “What if I were an Insect… what would I be and why.”
