Once upon a time there lived a little girl named Olivia. Olivia had three sisters, Reyana,
Stephanie, and Indiana. Olivia was 14, Stephanie was 12, Reyana was 9 and Indiana was
7. They lived in a city named Heartville in the northeast of United States of America.
Reyana and Stephanie were greedy sisters, but Olivia and Indiana were grateful children.
They all loved stationery. Their mother and father were named Andrea and Michael.
Andrea was a baker and Michael was a shoemaker. They told Reyana and Stephanie that
they should be grateful for what they have too. But Stepanie and Reyana still were greedy.
One night when Olivia was going to bed she saw out of her covers, her stationery was
wriggling out the window! Olivia snatched the stationery. She begged her stationery not to
leave but by then her mom came and Olivia had to sleep. She hugged her stationery and
slept. The next day, Olivia woke up late. When she looked in her hands, there was no
stationery. All there was, was a note from Indiana and some candies. The note said,
I’m sorry that Stephainie and Reyana stole your stationery. I gave you these candies so
that you cheer up. How I knew they stole it, I wore black pjs so that I could sneak up on
Stephanie and Reyana.
When Olivia saw the letter, she was happy with what her sister had said to her but she was
still sad. Stephanie and Reyana saw that their sister was sad so they decided to change their
greediness into gratefulness. They went and told Olivia that they were sorry for stealing
her stationery and returned it to her. Olivia smiled and said “We can all go and play, ride a
bike ride, run and all sorts of stuff. Would you like to do that?”. Stephenie and Reyana
happily agreed. All four sisters played together and had a great day.
Olivia then told her sisters about her stationery. They all decided to wait and watch the
stationery come alive. Then in the night Olivia’s stationery came alive once again!!. This
time she and her sisters all saw. They caught the stationery, calmed them and introduced
themselves. Then the stationery and the sisters became friends. They played together and
had a big party.
