Once there was a boy who always told lies. This boy was Ed. Ed never told the truth; not to his parents, or even his friends. This boy was in for a lesson, a lesson that will change him for the better.
"Ed, you're late to class again," Mrs King said.
"I'm sorry Mrs. King, you see my little sister didn't wake up on time. That's what made me late," Ed replied.
"Nice try, but you don't have a sister," Mrs. King shot back.
“Oh! That’s right! I’m sorry Mrs. King, it’s just, you believed in my little sister for long I had to mention her again,” the class laughed as Ed headed to his seat.
“Boy, one day that mouth of yours is gonna land you in a world of trouble.”
After school Ed told his friends he’d meet them for icecream after his homework was done. His friends agreed to the plans and went their separate ways. Of course, Ed, the gem he is, didn’t go to do his homework. The little fool went into the forest looking for snakes to prank his friends.
He wandered so far into the forest, he became lost, “Man, all the snakes are hiding today.”
Just then, a snake slithered quickly by his feet. Something hit his head, and a spider landed on his shoulder. In a panic Ed started screaming and flailing his arms around, knocking off the spider.
“What are you doing here?” a bat asked him.
“Shouldn’t you be doing homework?” the snake asked hanging from a branch with the spider on his head.
“Me and my friends are playing,” Ed replied shakily.
“I don’t think he has any,” the spider said. The animals laughed.
“Jeff! Al! You guys can come out now!” Ed called to no one.
“Boy, you’re a liar,” the snake said.
“Get out of our forest!” the bat commanded.
Ed was too scared to move, so the snake, bat, and spider chased him to the edge of the forest.
Little did Ed know, the snake, bat, and spider were his friends. Ed never lied to his friends again.
