    Here is our first “Story” at our fingertips, written by Hannah (age 6)
    One day there were two best friends and their names were Sophie and Maya. They were the best friends ever. One day they were on the way to school. When they were on the bus, like always they were sitting next to each other. Then, Sophie recognized they were wearing the same hair clip. Except, Sophie’s was pink and Maya’s was purple. Then began the fight. Maya said, “Mine is prettier because it is purple.”
    And Sophie said, “No, mine is prettier because mine is pink! Pink is the prettiest color.”
    Then Maya said, “You’re not my friend.”
    Then one day, Sophie was going to have a party. She invited everyone in the class except for Maya. When Sophie was opening her present from her mom and dad, she found inside a real puppy.
    “Oh, my own puppy!” She said.
    When she got to school the next day, she told Maya all about it. Then Maya got jealous and said, “Well your clip was really prettier. Can we be friends again? Can I come to your house and see your puppy?”
    “Yes!” she said. And they were friends again.
    After that fight with Sophie, Maya realized that you should never stop being friends with somebody just because of a fight!

    Hi there, what a mysterious idea for a story!So I want to know what happens to the people who disappear in the windless tornado? The story might have a very interesting ending when those people come back again. Maybe they are changed somehow…hmmmm.
    A great idea
    Your storyteller
