Two VERY Short Stories

My tulip in my garden came up one morning and it was snowing. All the others were still asleep. He said sadly to himself "I can't grow in this weather. The sun is still asleep." All of the sudden a loud noise woke the sun up. The snowmen melted and the other tulips woke up. All the children came out to play. It was very hot. No smoke was coming out of the chimneys. Spring was here. Birds sang and sang.

Once upon a time there lived a very happy sock. He lived in the dresser drawer with all the other socks. He was very pretty indeed. He had red and white trimming and was always in a pretty white covering. The little girl loved him very much. One day the girl went to the shoe store (without him for a change) to buy some more shoes. Then she didn't like the sock anymore. He was dunked in the closet when the shoes were put neatly in the closet. One morning while sitting in the dark closet he saw something. It was a very funny shape with a string hooked on to it. He pulled the string and the thing lit up. It was a light. He found all kinds of things to do. He played Swing The Shirts with all the shirts and dresses hanging in the closet. He played with all the old toys and games in the closet. Now he was once more a happy sock. And he lived happily ever after.
