“You’re it” said Tom as he played hide-and-go-seek with Sara, Tracy and John. Tom, Sara, Tracy and John had been best friends since grade two. On the first day of school when Mrs.Pierot had paired them all up for being desk buddies, no body knew each other and they weren’t happy not to have friends with them. Tracy had even refused to sit with them and had moved her desk away. But Mrs.Pierot didn’t agree.
At recess time, they all complained to their friends how their teacher was mean and how they hated their desk buddies. “Urg, I hate them so much. They’re really mean!” Exclaimed Tom to Jill Bo.
When recess was over, Mrs.Pierot assigned a team work with your desk buddies. They weren’t happy, but it seems that the next, everything was okay and they weren’t just desk buddies, but best friends!!
“So, best friends 4evs!!??? ” Said John
YES was the answer of the rest of the group!
They had had lots of adventures in forests, parks, ect. One sunny morning- on the day after their sleepover, Sara’s mom had been preparing break-fast for the kids, when she heard a BOOM coming from upstairs. So she went up to check and found out that they had made a secret lab in Sara’s room. When Tom came up and said it wasn’t Sara’s fault but his. Sara’s mom told Tom to leave and to never come back, so Tracy and John stood up too and Sara’s mom did the same thing she had done to Tom. So Sara didn’t have any friends left, only her, and herself. She was all so lonely and sad. Everyday at school, Sara didn’t talk, didn’t play, she just stood there like a loner outside at recess. She was boring! But the worst part is that her mom didn’t care, she didn’t do anything about Sara’s depression even though she saw Sara was miserable.
KNOCK KNOCK was the sound on the door.
“I’ll get it” said Sara’s mom.
“Hello Mrs.Week’s (that was her last name) we are her to tell you that what you are doing to Sara (and to us) isn’t fair. You shouldn’t keep your daughter from having friends and playing with them. We are kids, we will make big errors in our life and you should know because you were a kid once and I am sure you’ve made plenty of errors as one.”
Please forgive us for what we have done and let us play with your daughter!” Said John (with Tracy and Tom.)
You’re right John. What I am doing to you four isn’t very professional and I would like to be forgiven. Am I?”
You truly are Mrs.Weeks!” Said Tracy.
So as the kids went outside to play with Sara, Mrs.Weeks had a smile on her face. She was happy to see that they were happy to play together and she was really happy to be forgiven. She realized that she had been a little bit too harsh on them and they didn’t deserve to be separated for any reason!
They stayed best friends for life!
