The stream flowed lazily through the forest. Tommy sat on an old stump with a fishing pole made out of an old stick. Up to this point Tommy hadn’t caught any fish. He didn’t mind though. The day was hot and the gentle breeze that blew through the trees felt good.
Tommy reached into a wooden box he had made by nailing some old pieces of wood together and pulled out a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The only thing that would have made it better would have been mother’s fresh squeezed lemonade.
It was at this time that Tommy heard someone running through the forest. He recognized the voice calling his name instantly. His sister Tiffany reached him out of breath.
“Tommy, you got a package!” Tiffany was excited. Tiffany was always excited about one thing or another..
“Do you know who it’s from?” Tommy asked as if he only barely cared.
“It’s from Uncle Steve.” Tiffany responded.
Uncle Steve was weird. Tommy thought Uncle Steve’s gift must also be weird.
“Come on Tommy, come on and open it.” Tiffany begged, she was really curious about what was inside the package.
“I’m fishing. I’ll open it tomorrow on my birthday.” Tommy wasn’t in any big hurry.
