The Scary Strange Thing (Chapter 6)

Archie keeps on telling. He has been on so many adventures! With eyes closed, so he can see everything he has done in his mind’s eye, he keeps telling his friends about all the wonderful things that he has done.

After a long while, he opens his eyes. He want to see the admiration on their faces! But… What..?

They have all gone!

He is alone.

Alone in a tree… Talking to himself… Now he feels a little stupid. How long has he been left alone..? He gets a little angry. His friends have made him look like a fool! And this, while he is a hero! Bah! He feels a little disappointed and a little sad too. He gets up, takes his pillow and climbs out of the tree. He goes home.
