The Story Continues

“Midge!” called Snappy. “Where are you? I'm waiting for you to finish your story!”
“I'm coming,” said Midge as she came through the door back into the living room..
“What more can you add?” asked Jake. “We left there and went home.”
“We did,” agreed Booker-T. “But you know Midge.”
“Oh no,” said Jake. “What did she do?”
“Well, Booker-T and I left Jake's house and we started to walk home,” said Midge. “But I couldn't stop thinking about that movie they were making.”
“She talked me into going back to the school grounds where they were filming,” said Booker-T.
“I will bet it didn't take too much to talk you into it,” laughed Jake.

Midge Tells A Story

  “Hey Booker-T!” called Midge from the back yard when she saw him digging in the back. “What are you doing?”
“Hi Midge,” said Booker-T. “I was just playing around. What are you doing this morning?”
“Nothing,” said Midge. “Come on over and say hi to Snappy.”
“I will be there in a few minutes,” said Booker-T as he ran to the front of the house.
Booker-T hurried to Midge's house and met her in the back yard. He followed her into the house and they hurried to the living room where Snappy was sitting on a small log in his tank.
“Hi Snappy!” smiled Booker-T.
“Hi Booker-T,” greeted Snappy. “What are you doing? I'm so happy you came to see me.”
“Midge asked me to come in,” said Booker-T. “I am always happy to come see you. Do you miss being at the pond in the park?”
“Oh no,” said Snappy. “My little home here is really nice. I miss seeing you guys sometimes, but Midge is here all the time, so I'm not lonely.”

Stars in Midge's Eyes

After eating and taking a nice nap, Booker-T and Midge told Jake good-bye and started for home.
“Do you want to be in the movies, Booker-T?” asked Midge.
“Why do we want to be in the movies?” asked Booker-T.
“We could be famous,” said Midge.
“You want to be famous?” asked Booker-T.
“I think so,” said Midge. “I saw this movie with my owner one night about a big dog. I think her name was Lassie.”
“Was it a good movie?” asked Booker-T.
“Lassie was a really smart dog,” said Midge. “She was pretty too.”
“They are making an alien movie,” said Booker-T. “We don't look like aliens.”

Space Aliens Are Here

“Jake! Jake!” called Midge and she and Booker-T ran into the yard at Jake's house.
“Where are you?” called Booker-T. “Jake!”
Jake came running around the corner of the house and quickly stopped in front of Midge. “What is going on? Why are you all excited?”
“Jake,” said Midge trying to catch her breath. “The space aliens have landed. They are here, Jake!”
“Midge,” said Jake. “Slow down. Remember when you came running telling me the aliens had landed and it turned out to be a hot air balloon and the next time it was an advertisement for a new cafe. How do you know that is a real thing?”
“I saw them too Jake,” said Booker-T as he paced back and forth.
“Where are they?” asked Jake.
