You are never to little to help

Tom and Tina were brother and sister and usually very nice to each other. Tom was the older one and his birthday was coming up. He was so excited, he would turn eight years old. Tina was six years old and even more excited about her big brothers birthday party. Everybody helped to decorate. Mommy, daddy, Tina and of course Tom. Tom and Tina decided to go to bed early that night since the next day was a the party for Tom and he had invited all his friends. Brother and sister fell asleep as soon as they snuggled up in their beds. Tina was up first before everybody else. She had to check if everything is perfect. Tina went into Tom's room to wake him up. She wanted to make sure he wouldn't miss his own birthday party. " Tom, Tom, wake up! It's your birthday! And she started to sing Happy Birthday with her little voice. Tom opens his eyes and looked straight into Tina's face. He started laughing and got up. The morning went bye so fast and Tina ran every five minutes to the door to check if Tom's friends where outside. Tina started to get a little upset and thought that maybe no one would show up as she heard the door bell." Ding Ding" Tina jumped up and down and yelled:" They are here! They are here"! Tom opened the door and welcomed his friends and walked them into the living room, where his mom had have set up the table with a really big ice cream cake and juice. But Tom had to open all his presents first. His mom and dad bought him a few music CD's. Now it was time to open the presents from his friends. He got all kinds of things. Books, Pen's, toy cars and the best present ever, an soccer ball. He loved that ball and wanted to go outside with his friends to play. He asked his mom if he could and she said " Yes"! Tina wanted to go with Tom and his friends to play with the new ball. But Tom didn't feel like watching his little sister on his birthday. And he wouldn't be able to play. He said to Tina" Not today. I want to play with my friends alone! But you can watch me from the window. Tina was very upset and started to cry when Tom and his friends walked out of the front door with the new soccer ball. She went to the window and saw the boys going to a close by field. All that was close to that field were some old, broken houses. No one lived in there since a long time. She watched Tom and his friends playing with the new ball.

After a while she saw the boys running to one of the empty houses. She was wondering what they were doing there. She saw Tom running around searching for something. She got very curious and sneaked out of the house when her mom wasn't looking. She knew that wasn't aloud but she was so noesy. She couldn't hold it back. She ran over to Tom and his friends. She saw her brother sitting on the ground with his hands in front of his face. She asked him what happened. Tom just mumbled that he lost his new soccer ball. Tina asked where he lost it and how. Tom told her to go back to the house and not to worry about it since she was to little to help anyways. Tina got upset and started to cry. One of Tom's friends felt bed for the little girl and told her that the soccer ball was in the old, empty house in the basement. The ball rolled through a small opening and they couldn't get to it. The boys tried to go to the hole but everybody was to big. Tina stopped crying and turned to the house. She saw the hole on the bottom of the house and walked over to it. She looked at it and turned around and said:" I am not to big and fit through the opening. Tom looked at her and smiled. He told Tina that she was to small to go all alone into that basement. Tina didn't think about that and got scared. But she wanted to show her brother that she was not as small as he thought. She told Tom that it would take her only a few minutes to get the ball and that Tom and his friends could help her back out. Tom's friends said that it was worth to try. Tina sat on the ground in front of the the hole and put first one leg through the opening and then the other leg. She was so scared but didn't want to show her brother. She sled carefully down into the dark basement. Her heartbeat was so loud that she could hear it. It took her a minute to get used to the darkness and than she saw the soccer ball in a corner of the basement. She took a deep breath and ran over to the corner and crapped the ball. She than ran back to the opening and yelled that she had the soccer ball and needed one of the boys to reach through the opening and take it. Tom was standing the whole time at the hole and prayed that Tina would be OK. He he took the ball from Tina and reach for his little sister to pull her out. Tina had to take a deep breath again when she was out of the dark basement.

Tom looked at his sister and told her how sorry he was that he didn't take her outside to let her play with him and his friends. He put his arms around Tina, gave her a big hug and whispered in her ear how thankful he was. Then he looked at her and told her that she was big enough to play with him, his friends and the new soccer ball. He also said to his friends that he learned something out of the situation. That you never to little to help. The friends agreed and all together they went to play soccer, even Tina. She was so happy to be a big girl now.
