Best Friends

in Basset

In the town of Basset there were two groups of girls. The girls didn’t like each other one bit. When the girls were just babies, they never wanted to play with each other. To this day they still will not speak to each other.

1

For example, the yellow group didn’t like how the blue group did their hair. It was too brown and too long and they especially despised how flowed in the wind.

2

The blue group didn’t like how the yellow group tied their shoes. The first girl tied her shoes with really small loops. The second girl tied her shoes with really large loops. The third girl double knotted her shoes. This drove the blue group crazy.

3

The girls simply did not agree on anything. However, instead of fighting with each other they decided that they simply would not speak to one another ever again.

4

Despite their differences, one thing they all loved was dogs. They loved dogs so much that they would count all of the different types of dogs that they could name.

5

One day, both groups were walking home from school. On their way home they saw a dog lying in the road. They quickly became very worried about the dog.

6

The dog had a big cut on his leg.

“Oh no!” cried the yellow group.

“We need to help him!" cried the blue group.

7

“We will take him to the hospital.” Said the blue group.

“No, I think WE should take him to the hospital. We are bigger than you are, anyways.” Said the yellow group.

8

The girls argued and argued until the dog started to cry. He wished the girls would realize how much arguing made him sad.

The girls slowly looked down at the dog. They could hear him crying and realized what they had done.

“You guys, maybe we should both take the dog to the hospital. He is really hurt and I don’t think he wants us to argue anymore.” Said one of the girls.

“Yeah, maybe we should. It is the right thing to do.” Said another girl.

The girls slowly picked up the dog and carefully took the dog to the hospital. As time dragged on the girls counted each breath the dog took, hoping they would arrive at the hospital in time.

11

They arrived at the hospital and the dog went into surgery. While they were waiting the girls started to notice new things in their friends. They realized that the way the blue group did their hair was actually pretty cool. The way the yellow group tied their shoes was quite artistic. Maybe the two groups weren’t so different after all.

When the dog got out of the hospital the two groups decided to become friends with each other and share the dog. They started to care for the dog and play at the playground together.

Together the new friends worked together to build the dog his own house. This made to dog very happy.

The girls even decided to open a dog walking business for the community of Basset.

The community was thrilled that these girls finally had become friends. They were also glad to have them working together to make their town a better place.
