“Stella!” yelled Autumn Elf to his younger sister, one cool autumn morning. “Hurry up! By the time you are ready to go, it will be winter.”
“Alright,” said Stella. “You do know that we have lots of time to get to the mall. It doesn’t open for a few more hours.”
“I want to get there early,” said Autumn Elf.
“That is ridiculous,” said Stella. “You are just going to be sitting in the parking lot and you will be so bored.”
“Fine,” said Autumn Elf, storming out of the kitchen. “If you don’t hurry up, I will go to the mall without you.”
“You are just being mean,” said Stella. “You know I need to help you pick up the supplies for the autumn dance.”
“I don’t need your help,” said Autumn Elf, walking out onto the front porch.
“Okay,” said Stella. “I’m not going to help you with the dance at all.”
Autumn Elf continued walking. He soon came to Frankton’s house. Frankton was a good friend to Autumn Elf and Stella. He was an elderly elf, someone Autumn Elf confides in.
“How are plans for the autumn dance?” asked Frankton.
“Not very well,” said Autumn Elf.
“I thought Stella was helping you,” said Frankton.
“She was going to,” said Autumn Elf. “But I was mean to her this morning. I wanted to go to the mall early but she said I was ridiculous because the mall doesn’t open for a few hours and that I would be bored because I would be just sitting in the parking lot.”
“Well,” said Frankton. “I am afraid that Stella is right. You know and I know it would not be a good idea for you to be bored. You would likely get into some kind of trouble.”
“Oh,” said Autumn Elf. “I suppose you are right. Now, what am I going to do?”
“You go back home and apologize,” said Frankton.
Autumn Elf went home and apologized to Stella. She accepted his apology and the two siblings went to the mall together once it was open. Together they got all the supplies they needed for the autumn dance.
The night of the autumn dance came along and Autumn Elf was so happy that he took Stella by the hand and danced an autumn dance with her. Frankton saw them dancing together and he smiled.
