Jayden 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 Jayden’s property.
Jayden did not even look up. She did not know it was the Easter Bunny that was talking to her.
“Well,” said Jayden, staring at the ground. “I’ve been a really good girl this year. As a matter of fact, I’ve been a really good girl for many years now and each year the Easter Bunny seems to forget 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 Jayden, slowly looking up at who she was talking too.
Jayden felt so embarrassed. There, standing not two feet away from her was the Easter Bunny, Easter gifts in hand.
“Gee,” said Jayden. “I’m really sorry. I feel so foolish now.”
The Easter Bunny pat Jayden 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 Jayden, 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 Jayden, totally shocked.
“Yes really,” answered the Easter Bunny, handing Jayden her Easter gifts.
