“Hi Daisy,” said Fawn, in the grocery store aisle.
“Oh Fawn,” said Daisy. “It is so good to see you again. How is Spot?”
“I’m fine Daisy,” said Spot, who was just coming around the corner of the aisle. “How are you doing?”
“Good,” said Daisy. “Gee I sure miss you two.”
“I know,” said Fawn. “When never get to see you anymore since Mr. Brown purchased your old farm.”
“Mr. Brown is a bit eccentric,” said Daisy. “However he does treat us animals good.”
“I’m glad to hear that,” said Spot.
“So how are your owners, the Hansens’?” asked Daisy.
“They are fine,” said Fawn.
“Yes,” said Spot. “And Ricky and Jenny Hansen are all grown up now and have both left home.”
“Wow,” said Daisy. “It has been much too long since I’ve seen you two. Ricky and Jenny were only about 9 years old then.”
“No,” said Spot. “I think the last time we saw you Jenny was just turning 8 so Ricky would have been 10.”
“Still,” said Daisy. “It is much too long.”
“Why don’t you see if you can come over on Saturday?” asked Fawn.
“Okay,” said Daisy. “But don’t hold your breath. Mr. Brown might not let me.”
“Alright,” said Fawn. “See what you can do?”
Daisy wanted to visit Fawn and Spot ever so badly. They were her best friends and ever since Mr. Brown took over the farm, she has not been able to see her friends.
“And where do you think you are going young lady?” asked Mr. Brown when he saw Daisy try to sneak out of the barn on Saturday evening.
“I’m just going to go to Fawn and Spot’s,” said Daisy, fearful of Mr. Brown.
“Okay,” said Mr. Brown. “But you must be back in one hour.”
Daisy couldn’t believe that Mr. Brown actually let her go and she knew that she would have to be home in that one hour or he would never let her go out again.
“Why do you keep looking at your watch?” asked Fawn, noticing that Daisy kept glancing at her watch nervously.
“I have to be home in one hour,” said Daisy.
“Mr. Brown is a big meanie,” said Fawn. “You should be able to come see us whenever you want.”
“Fawn,” said Spot. “Leave Daisy alone. At least we get to see her for the one hour right now. It is a start.”
Daisy made sure she was home five minutes before her hour was up. Mr. Brown was delighted to see that Daisy did as she was told and he finally lifted her curfew so that she could visit her friends whenever she wanted.
