 The beetle crawled out of his little nest in the hollow twig. It was a cozy little nest good enough for a beetle, that is. The beetle, who went by the name of Harry decided to take a walk. He stepped between two dew covered grasses, which were lit up by the morning sun. He then walked over one old twig which was on the verge of dying. It was early-fall and some little leaves were beginning to fall off. One fell on Harry, and as he shook the brittle red-green leaf off, he spotted something shiny. Something that was just so alluring, magical, awe-inspiring that he was drawn to it, like the most powerful magnet. Inching his feet closer to the bright purple circle, he reached it. This, was truly the happiest day of his life.

He had found his button. He was free.
