When Mike came home, his sister, Mary had recently come home from the mall, and she's carrying a Pokémon card. She tries to tell Mike, but he doesn't believe it.
SUREEEE, I've been collecting cards for 7 months and you collect a card in 7 minutes. It's a pretty rare card, now go away!
Hey, I came back from the mall and got a Pokémon card, it's card 56-
Mary ended up leaving with tears in her eyes, she also ended up leaving the card on the floor for Mike.
It's not like you even had number 56, get going!
I don't have any cards and wanted to give it to you. If you want it, go ahead and take it, if you don't, that's okay.
My classmates were also being nothing but nice, and I was being so rude to them. I think both my sister and classmates are in due for an apology from my side.
WOWWZA! That really WAS card 56! She was being so helpful, kind and caring towards me and I was mean to her the whole day.
Mike comes to the realization that the way he's been acting has been wrong. He's been acting better impolite, selfish and disrespectful towards family and friends.
I wonder if I can let Mary come to the school with me and let her collect the prize if I do win. Because, if I win, it would be her win and only possible because of her!
The Next Day: It is the day of the tournament, and Mike explains his rude behaviour, offers his apology and proposes to exchange his duplicate cards with his friends.
POKEMON CARD TOURNAMENT
I'm really sorry about the way I acted yesterday. I was being disrespectful and I was not only rude to you, but my little sister too. Thanks to her, I now know, the importance to sharing.
Guys, before the competition get's started, and before the judges vote the winner, I would like to offer my duplicate cards to you. If you could share your duplicate cards, I would be more than happy
We're glad you realized your behavior was un-becoming of a friend .
Mary and Mike's friends have accepted Mike's apology. They also have recognized Mike's intention to display better behaviour and are willing to co-operate and support the joy of sharing.
POKEMON CARD TOURNAMENT
Haha.... Don't worry, he won't, I know my brother!
We'd be glad to exchange the duplicate cards before you change your mind again. Am I right Mary?
Thank you, Mary. We only won, because you showed me the importance of sharing .
The results were announced, and the winner was Mike. But Mike requests Mary to collect the winner's badge. The friends are happy that they now have an improved card collection and Mary is happy that she helped Mike win the tournament, and Mike is really experiencing the joy of sharing with his friends and little sister: Mary.
