Can I change the she to an I? It would make more sense in my short story because I write in first person most of the time.

Hey everybody, let Round 2 begin. I'm ready to post my story.



REVENGE OF LILY THE DUCK




He didn't look anything like I had expected. No, Gorilla Bob was not sick in bed. He was showing off his pearly white teeth as he accepted the Judges Award for the best garden.


Hello, My name is Lily, and I am a Webkinz duck. I once had a very good friend by the name of Gorilla Bob. We used to be next door neighbors and enjoyed tending our gardens and sipping on lemonade together during the long hot summers. All of that changed nearly a year ago when Gorilla Bob and I entered our gardens in a contest sponsored by our homeowners association. Gorilla Bob had promised to tend my garden while I was away vacationing, and instead neglected it so he could win the most beautiful garden contest himself. I moved to another community after his betrayal, and everything was bliss until a month ago. The condo next door was sold, and who should jump out of the moving van but Gorilla Bob with his rakes, hoes and garden chairs.


I decided it was time to get even. I knew Gorilla Bob had painting and roof repair to do on his old house before he could put it up for sale. After he moved into his condo, I watched his comings and goings for the first couple of days. Once I figured out his routine, I went to work. With my picnic basket in hand, I sneaked into Gorilla Bob's condo one morning by prying open a window. I knew it had a broken latch from the previous owner, Pink Poodle Tiffany, so entry into the condo was easy. I decided I would have my little picnic in his living room. I opened a bottle of apple cider and began to feast on a pound of shrimp, a tin of sardines and a small block of goat cheese. Once I had enough to eat, I set aside what was left over. I then went into each room in his condo. I removed his newly purchased drapery rods and took them into the living room. I then removed the end from each rod and deposited bits of my feast into the hallow part of each rod. I replaced the ends, and returned each of the rods to their assigned windows. I then went back home to wait.


Gorilla Bob continued going back and forth from the condo to his old house the first few days after my picnic in his living room. All seemed well, although I did notice some cans of air fresheners in his trash. Then one day, when he was doing his roof repairs on his house, he was called back home by the President of of our homeowners association. There were several complaints from the neighbors of a horrible stench coming from his condo. I already had hung up my air fresheners, so I didn't notice. I watched that afternoon as Merry Maid Cleaning Service drove up with cleansers and mops. The next day an exterminator van pulled up. A couple of days later, painters showed up with ladders and several gallons of paint. I had to snicker when I saw his old carpet being hauled away a few days after the painters left. Next, a van pulled up with beautiful, plush carpet to install.


One afternoon, shortly after Gorilla Bob's new carpet was installed, I was trying to get in a beauty nap. I woke up to him arguing with our neighbors. I listened as he told them he couldn't get anyone into the condo to figure the problem out. “Every repair man I call runs out as fast as he walks in,” said Gorilla Bob. Frustrated, Gorilla Bob made the decision not to sell his old house and put up a "for sale" sign in front of his condo. Of course, he listed it at a much lower price than he had purchased it for.


I went outside on moving day feeling absolutely wonderful. I waved a friendly good-bye to Gorilla Bob as the moving van, loaded up with all of his furniture - including his drapery rods, drove away. Yes, revenge can be so sweet!
