Once upon a time there was this woman named Zanis P. Miller. She loved to read and write books. One day she was sitting by the warm fireplace—she was thinking about writing a poem. As she began, "Tell me no Lie, Tell me no dream, All I want is your sympathy."
The door bell rang. It was the most famous writer in Indiana. Zanis said, "Just a minute, please." It was Langston Hughes. They sat sown for a cup of "ice tea." He said "How about you becoming my assistant?" She said "yes!" Four years later, they got married at the Bahamas Island.
It was a big wedding. It had flowers every where. Zanis had a white dress on with a flower in her hair. They traveled through Ohio and Pennsylvania to Indiana. Jacj and Jason followed in their parent's footsteps to become writer.
