The Birthday Party

Abigail, Veronica and Natalie went to their friend Catharine's birthday party. They played games and ate birthday cake and ice cream with sprinkles. When Catharine opened her birthday presents she took all the ribbons and tied them in her hair. Abigail, Veronica and Natalie laughed.

When it was time to go home, Catharine told her friends they could each take one balloon home with them. Abigail picked a bright yellow balloon. Veronica picked a dark purple one. Natalie, who sometimes did naughty things, took two balloons, one green and one red.

Catharine said, “You can only take one balloon. The other one is for Elizabeth, my other friend.”

Natalie cried and stomped her feet on the ground. “I want both balloons! I don't want just one!”

Abigail scowled at Natalie. “Give Elizabeth one of the balloons or I won't be your friend any more.”

Veronica frowned. “Natalie, share with Elizabeth.”

Natalie looked at her friends and then she looked at Elizabeth. Even though she didn't want to, she gave Elizabeth the green balloon.

Elizabeth smiled and took it.

Catharine smiled too. “Thank you. Now you can have a piece of birthday cake to take home with you.” Catharine cut four pieces of cake. She gave one piece to Abigail, one piece to Veronica, one piece to Elizabeth and one piece to Natalie.

When their moms came to pick them up, Natalie told her mom how she'd shared balloons with Elizabeth. “Catharine gave me a piece of cake.”

Natalie's mom hugged Catharine. “Happy Birthday,” she said.

Natalie shouted, “Happy Birthday, Catharine,” and then she went home, happy that she decided to share her balloons.
