Friends No Matter What!
Picture & Story
by Kerry Moore
flowers and bees
do not get along because bees take the flowers pollen, but this wasn't
the case with Molly the flower and Billy the bee. It didn't
to them that flowers and bees weren't supposed to like each
other all they knew is they had fun together!
One day another
came along, his nick name was Terry
the Terror. Terry the Terror was always mean to Molly, he teased
her saying that her petals were not as pretty as the other flowers and
that she did not make as much pollen as the other flowers. This
upset Molly very much because she was such a sweet flower and got along
with everyone. Billy the bee was furious that Terry the Terror
kept upsetting his friend, even after Molly had asked him nicely to
please stop teasing her because he was hurting her feelings.
day, Billy the bee decided he would give Terry the Terror a taste of
his own medicine. When Terry the Terror came to tease
Molly the next day Billy the bee was ready. He asked some of his
fellow bee friends to meet him near Molly because they were going to
tease a bully. When Terry the Terror showed up he noticed that
some other bees were laughing in his direction and he didn't know why
and it hurt his feelings. Once Billy the bee realized that Terry
was getting his feelings hurt he told his friends to stop.
the bee explained to Terry the Terror that making fun of people was not
so funny at all and it hurt peoples feelings. Terry the Terror
apologized to Molly and played with Molly and Billy for the rest of the
day and found out that it wasn't so bad to have a flower as a
friend. Billy and Molly also discovered that after getting to
know Terry the Terror that he wasn't such a terror after all.
