“Look at this beautiful ice rink I made,” said Mr. Iceman. “The ice is perfect. I have lights set up and two fire pits so people can keep their hands warm.”
It was a beautiful winter evening. Mr. Iceman was enjoying skating on his new ice rink. He was having a glorious time but then he started feeling guilty.
“The poor people at the town ice rink,” said Mr. Iceman. “They will never have the fun I am having. I think I will invite them to share my ice rink.”
Mr. Iceman was being very kind in offering his ice rink to people to use. However, people were a little bit skeptical of his intentions.
“You must want something,” said one young woman. “People don’t offer things for free these days.”
“All I want is for people to enjoy my new ice rink and to keep it clean,” said Mr. Iceman.
“Are you sure that is all you want?” asked the young woman.
“I am sure,” said Mr. Iceman.
“It does look like nice ice,” said the young woman. “Maybe I will try it. By the way, my name is Sarah.”
Sarah took Mr. Iceman up on his offer to go skating and she did enjoy herself immensely.
“Mr. Iceman,” said Sarah. “Thank you for letting me skate here. The ice is just beautiful. The lights and the fire pits are an excellent addition. This is truly amazing!”
“I am pleased that you like it,” said Mr. Iceman. “That is good to hear. I want people to use it to enjoy themselves. That was the whole purpose of building it.”
It wasn’t long before others started using Mr. Iceman’s ice rink and they all respected his rule of keeping it clean. Each person that used it made sure there was no garbage lying around before they left. They knew the time Mr. Iceman put into building it and they all had respected him for that.
