It was the morning of the first day of school , and Broccoli and Apple were getting ready at their respective homes.Both of them were very shy children and their parents were worried about them making friends. In kindergarten they would be exposed to new things.
Broccoli had her backpack ready and was extremely nervous."Would anyone like me?" she pondered. Apple's thoughts were also along the same lines. Both children left their homes and were on their way to school. "Good luck Broccoli. I hope you do well!"Her parents said as they waved goodbye. Meanwhile, Apple's parents were lecturing her on what to do. "Make sure to wash your hands after you use the restroom Apple dear,"they advised. "Yes I know," Apple moaned,"don't worry." She kissed her parents and climbed onto the wailing bus, about to leave.
Apple and Broccoli entered their classrooms and sat down in the chairs labeled with their names. The rooms were so huge with its shiny whiteboards and its fuzzy yellow and green rugs. Mr. Zucchini , Apple's teacher looked very old and kind with wrinkles etched in his face like an ancient tree. Broccoli's teacher, Ms. Berry looked very young and her face was blank with her gentle baby blue eyes gazing off into elsewhere like a vast , endless, universe.Everyone already had friends or people they knew. Apple and Broccoli were all alone.
Falling Action/ Resolution
Then, it was lunchtime, and all the groups of friends sat together at their own tables.Broccoli and Apple were all by themselves, silently eating their lunches. Mr.Zucchini noticed these children , and he thought about how to put these two kids together. In his eyes,they were like two puzzle pieces that fit perfectly when put side by side.After a while, lunchtime was over.
Next, it was time for recess and all the kids strolled out to the playground. Mr.Zucchini went outside and summoned Apple and Broccoli to execute his idea; he smelled as sweet as candle wax. "It has come to my attention that that the two of you are very shy." They nodded. "Now all I want you to do ," he told them, " is try to converse with each other and find some common ground.By the looks of it,both of you could be the best of friends." Apple and Broccoli glanced at each other , for, they had a feeling that he was right. Mr.Zucchini gazed at them encouragingly and set them off. "H...Hi," Broccoli stuttered."Hi," Apple whispered. " What's your name?" she questioned, a little more confident in herself now. "Broccoli , what's your name?"the former replied, smiling. " Apple,"the latter answered.
Soon enough the pair of them were chatting along; they were growing to like each other more and more by the minute. Mr.Zucchini grinned glad to know he had made a positive impact on two kids. Finally, the end of the school day arrived and Apple and Broccoli left for their homes , excited to tell their parents about the how much fun they had had and how much they were looking forward to the days ahead. They had finally learned to move out of their comfort zones, and only when they do so do they find new things, interests , and maybe even friends.
