Heather sat on the front porch of her log cabin. She was very upset and was crying her eyes out.
“Why are you crying?” asked the Easter Bunny, who just happened to arrive at Heather’s property.
Heather did not even look up. She did not know it was the Easter Bunny that was talking to her.
“Well,” said Heather, staring at the ground. “I’ve been a really good girl this year. All I want for Easter is that new dress I have been eyeing for the past month or so. It isn’t that expensive but I have other bills to pay right now and just can’t afford it. However, it seems the Easter Bunny forgot about me. I just don’t get it.”
“Gee,” said the Easter Bunny. “I don’t think the Easter Bunny has forgotten about you at all. As a matter of fact, I know the Easter Bunny hasn’t forgotten about you.”
“How do you know?” asked Heather, slowly looking up at who she was talking too.
Heather felt so embarrassed. There, standing not two feet away from her was the Easter Bunny, Easter gifts in hand.
“Gee,” said Heather. “I’m really sorry. I feel so foolish now.”
The Easter Bunny pat Heather on her head.
“Don’t worry,” said the Easter Bunny. “I know you are a good girl and I would never forget about you.”
“Thank you,” said Heather, wiping the tears from her eyes. “But, you are late though aren’t you?”
“Yes,” admitted the Easter Bunny. “I have to admit, I am late. However, there is a reason why I’m late. See, you are the goodest girl in the whole wide world and I kind of wanted to bring you your gifts in person.”
“Really?” asked Heather, totally shocked.
“Yes really,” answered the Easter Bunny, handing Heather her the Easter dress she had been eyeing.
“Thank you so much!” cried Heather. “Happy Easter!”
“Happy Easter to you!” shouted Easter Bunny, waving as he was on his way to finish up his deliveries.
