Not So Scary

Crew and his sister Nina begged to watch a movie about a shipwreck. "I'll watch it with you," Dad said. "We'll just turn it off if it's something we shouldn't be watching or if it gets too scary for you two." "It won't scare me," Crew said, "but Nina will probably scream through most of it. She's a big chicken!" Nina scowled. "I am not! I won't be scared at all." To Crew's surprise, when the storm got really rough and it was apparent the ship would go down, Nina just yawned. And when the...

Ginny weaved through the colorful art displays in her school's gymnasium. All around her, paintings, sketches, and drawings covered tall display boards, but Ginny wasn't looking at the beautiful artwork when she crashed right into her mom. "Oh!" Mom said, surprised. "Is everything okay, Ginny?" "Well, something sort of awkward just happened," Ginny answered. "Janiya brought her friend Alaina to the art fair and introduced her to me. Alaina is deaf, so she can't hear if I try to talk with...

"We're home!" shouted Gigi, Helena, and Ashley as they walked into the house. Gigi looked around. "Hmm, I guess Mom's in the garden." "She'll be inside later," said Ashley. "Let's get something to eat. I'm starving!" The girls scrambled into the kitchen and found a fruit bowl in the middle of the table. Each of them reached for a different piece of fruit just as Mom walked in. "Hey, girls," said Mom. "How was school today?" "It was good," said Helena. "We had a new girl named Brianna in our...

"Hi, Mom!" Jared said as he slid the door of the minivan shut. "How was your day? Anything interesting happen today?" Mom asked as she pulled away from the school. "There's a new kid in our class. His name is Tamim. He doesn't speak English very well, and he had some weird food in his lunch. I kind of wanted to talk to him, but I thought Marcus and Tony would make fun of me." "Hmm . . . Tamim. Is his last name Youssef?" Mom asked. "Yeah, it is," Jared said. "How'd you know?" "Well, I met his...

"Why is my favorite nine-year-old so sad today?" asked Mom when she noticed Nia's unhappy face. "Oh, Mom," Nia said, "I'm not good at anything! I can't sing like Cheryl, and I can't play the piano half as well as Ciara does!" "You sing and play the piano just fine," said Mom, "and I know something else you're very good at--helping me get lunch on the table. Dad will be home for lunch today." Nia helped her mother finish getting lunch ready. When Dad got home and they started to eat, Nia made...

After running some errands, Serena and her mom stopped at their favorite playground. It had lots of tunnels and fast slides. When Serena climbed to the highest point of the playground, she saw a girl around her own age sitting in the sandbox, tracing circles in the sand with a lonely look on her face. Serena raced down a slide, intent on asking the girl if she wanted to play. But she suddenly jerked to a stop. When the girl turned the other way, Serena noticed that she had no right arm!...

"Mom, why are you crying?" Joseph asked. Her tears scared him. She never cried. "I'm sorry, honey," she said, brushing away tears from under her eyes. "I'm just really discouraged right now." She turned on her right blinker and waited for an opening in the traffic. "Because we aren't able to move in today after all?" Joseph asked. "Yes," Mom answered as she turned right. "They promised the apartment would be ready for us. But those nasty bugs we found aren't easy to get rid of, and we can't...

When his dad picked him up after school, Logan tossed his backpack on the car seat. "I can't believe what happened today," he said. "I got in trouble for something I didn't even do." "How did that happen?" asked Dad. "Preston started an argument," replied Logan, "and he shoved me against my locker. I was so mad! I shoved him back. We were yelling at each other when our teacher walked up. He didn't let either of us play in gym today. It wasn't my fault--Preston started it." "I see," said Dad....

Dakota groaned as she tossed her backpack to the floor. "Mom! You wouldn't believe what happened at the Bible study." Mom dumped flour into a bowl. "How'd it go? Not good, I take it." Dakota was leading a small Bible study at a friend's house. "No. It was awful." Dakota plopped down on the floor, sniffling. "I heard Celeste complaining about the way I talked. She said I sounded whiny and that my voice was squeaky. She didn't know I was listening, but the next thing I know, everyone was...

"Hi, Grandpa," said Audrey as her grandfather came into the kitchen. "We're fixing a special anniversary dinner for Mom and Dad. They'll be here in a few hours." Grandpa smiled, but he looked troubled. "Didn't the town meeting go well?" Grandma asked. Grandpa shook his head. "What was it about?" Audrey asked, going to the cupboard to get the sugar. "Well, the city needs to fix a major pipeline--the one that brings water way out here to the farm. While it's being fixed, they plan to ban...

Finn's shoulders slumped as he dropped his bike on the lawn and joined his dad in the garage. "What's wrong, Finn?" Dad asked as he worked on sanding a chair he had recently made. "I just visited Grandma," Finn replied. He sighed and picked up a piece of sandpaper to help. "I don't understand her, Dad." "What don't you understand?" "Well, I know the doctors can't cure her disease--and she knows it too--but she actually seems happy about it." Finn started to help Dad sand an arm of the...

"Meek old Mr. Martin couldn't hurt a flea," the girls sang as they jumped rope. Aurora looked up and saw her dad watching them from the balcony with a slight frown as they continued the rhyme. Every new verse began with the words "Meek old Mr. Martin," and it went on to describe another way in which he was weak. At dinner, Dad asked Aurora if she knew the meaning of the word meek. "Sure," Aurora said as she spooned some corn onto her plate. "It means to be a wimp." "It can refer to someone...

As they traveled with their parents, Noah and Tess played a game to see who could spot the biggest variety of license plates. Soon Noah had seen seven different kinds, and Tess had seen five. Then Tess said, "Look, there's another one! I saw it first!" She read it. "Ill-a-noise, Land of Lincoln." "That's pronounced Ill-a-noy," Mom said. "It's called Land of Lincoln because that's where Abraham Lincoln completed his education, got married, and was elected to Congress and eventually to the...

Leo stayed close to his parents and older brother as they walked down their neighborhood street. They had gone for a walk just as the sun was setting, and now it was dark. Leo grabbed his dad's hand during the darkest parts of the walk, in between streetlights. When Leo and Ron saw their own house lit up by a nearby streetlight, they raced to the door. "Okay, boys, time for bed," said Dad as they entered the house. The boys said good night and went to their separate rooms. But a few...

There won't be many more campfires this summer!" Mom said as she put down an armload of logs. "But fall is a lot of fun too." Jase nodded. "I'm going to try out for the football team." He glanced at his sister. "And Gwen gets to start going to youth group this year." Gwen shrugged. "I'm not sure I want to go," she said. "Do I have to?" "Why wouldn't you want to go?" asked Mom. "It's a good place to develop close friendships with other Christians." "Yeah, but since we moved here, I haven't...

"Look, Lucy," said Mom. "A dollhouse! It'd be perfect for Eleanor." Lucy frowned. The wooden dollhouse in the thrift shop window was not much to look at--nothing like the fancy painted ones she and her younger sister had seen online. Eleanor's birthday was only a month away, and she wanted a dollhouse more than anything. Mom headed for the shop door. "Let's find out how much it costs." "But, Mom!" Lucy protested. "I'm not sure Eleanor will like--" But there was no stopping Mom. She was...

"Grandpa, can you tell me another Africa story, please?" Allison asked. Grandpa smiled as he thought of his childhood as a missionary kid in Congo. "Did I ever tell you about the mouse who died twice?" "No," answered Allison, scooting closer to her grandpa on the porch swing. "Well, one evening a missionary was walking home through the African jungle with her pet cat when she saw what looked like a branch blocking her path. Holding her light closer, she was shocked to see it was a snake....

"So, what's the grand total?" Dad asked as Laura counted the change on the table in front of her. "Twenty-three dollars and sixty-two cents." Laura dejectedly put the money back in the shoebox she'd been using as a cash register. "That's great!" Dad said. "So why the gloomy face?" Laura sighed. "I've been selling lemonade all summer. I worked so hard, and I only made $23.62." "That's a respectable amount," Dad said. "I don't see the problem." "The church is trying to raise $10,000 to feed...

Maria watched from the upstairs window as Mama left for work. Next to her on the windowsill was Mama's plant. She had left the house without watering it--again! Maria grabbed the plant and ran downstairs, careful not to run too fast. She didn't want to break the colorful clay pot she and Mama had painted together. "Abuela!" Maria shouted. "Mama keeps forgetting to water her plant. I haven't seen her water it in days! Will it die?" "Slow down, Maria," Abuela said gently. She sat down at the...

"This old table that used to be Grandma's is in pretty bad shape," Corbin said as his father spread finish remover on the tabletop. "And I think you're making it look worse instead of better." "Hey! I'm not done refinishing it," Dad said. The next day, Corbin watched Dad work on the table again. This time Dad was sanding it. "That still looks pretty bad," Corbin said. "I'm not through with it yet, you know," Dad replied. When Dad applied stain the next day, the table started looking...
