“Good morning Dallas,” said Lonely Scarecrow.
“Oh good morning Lonely Scarecrow,” said Dallas. “I didn’t realize it was morning already.”
“Time for me to keep watch,” said Lonely Scarecrow.
“I had an uneventful evening,” said Dallas.
“That is good,” said Lonely Scarecrow. “I should have a pretty uneventful day then.”
“Yes,” said Dallas. “You should. The crows have been keeping their distance.”
“I have noticed that too,” said Lonely Scarecrow.
Dallas closed his eyes and went to sleep. Lonely Scarecrow watched the sun rise to the east but soon a black cloud came over the sky.
“That isn’t a cloud,” said Lonely Scarecrow to himself as he took a closer look. ” ‘Those are crows!”
There were hundreds of crows. Lonely Scarecrow didn’t know what to do. He thought that maybe he should wake Dallas up but that wouldn’t be fair to him.
“I can handle this on my own,” said Lonely Scarecrow.
Lonely Scarecrow perched himself up on the fence post and made himself look as tall as he could. Then, he took off his hat and raised it up in the air as high as he could. Soon, Lonely Scarecrow noticed that the crows flew right past him.
“It worked,” said Lonely Scarecrow happily. “I did it. I scared the crows away.”
“What worked?” asked Dallas, waking up.
“Look,” said Lonely Scarecrow, pointing to the huge flock of crows in the far distance. “I scared that whole flock away.”
“Wow!” exclaimed Dallas. “That sure is a huge flock of crows.”
“Yes,” said Lonely Scarecrow. “It sure is.”
“You did an awesome job,” said Dallas, falling back to sleep.
