“I am in a bad mood today,” said Autumn Elf. “I am going to make some dark autumn days.”
Autumn Elf turned down the thermometer that controls autumn weather. He then reached up into the sky and he moved some clouds in to cover up the sun.
“There,” said Autumn Elf, smiling slightly. “That is better.”
“What is going on?” asked Autumn Elf’s sister, Stella. “What happened to the beautiful autumn day we were having? Why is it so dark?”
“I did it,” snapped Autumn Elf.
“Why?” asked Stella. “And why are you in such a bad mood?”
“I did it because I want us to have some dark autumn days,” said Autumn Elf. “It matches my dark mood. I am in a bad mood because I have so much to do and absolutely no time to do it.”
“Well,” said Stella. “If you turn the thermometer back up and push the clouds out of the way, I will help you.”
“You would,” said Autumn Elf. “That would be so nice of you.”
“Yes,” said Stella. “I would. We get enough dark days in the winter. We don’t need dark autumn days too.”
“Fair enough,” said Autumn Elf.
Autumn Elf turned the thermometer back up and moved the clouds out of the way. Stella helped him with quite a few of his chores and before Autumn Elf knew it, he was pretty much caught up with the work he had to do.
“Thank you Stella,” said Autumn Elf with a smile on his face. “You really helped me out quite a bit.”
“You are welcome,” said Stella. “And, thank you. I am enjoying this beautiful autumn weather.”
