A little tack caused a lot of trouble
It was a beautiful sunny day at Plushton. It was one of those ideal days to go for a stroll in the park. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. Plushed Panda Timothy decided to take advantage of such a day and to go for a walk in the park. He went out of his house and headed towards the park. He enjoyed the sun on his face. He took off his eyeglasses and put on his sunglasses. He didn’t mind he cannot see that well, because he enjoyed the whole day. So far.
Timothy sauntered through the park, just looking at the trees and sky and he was really peaceful and tranquil. He met a lot of his friends and said hello to everyone. One of his best friends, Hippo Frank wanted to join him in his walk, but Timothy wanted to walk alone because that was one of his rituals before his performance in the theatre. In that way, he could clear his mind and concentrate only on his role.
As he was strolling across the park, deeply involved in his thoughts, Timothy didn’t notice a small tack on the path. This tack was so small, thus completely unnoticeable. It had a flat head, but a very sharp point. As he didn’t see it, Timothy trod right on this tack and the sharp point got right into his foot. The tack was so sharp that it went deep into his left foot. The pain was terrible. Timothy fell on the ground immediately and started to cry because of all that pain. He tried to pull the tack out, but he couldn’t. At the moment, nobody was passing near him, and he just couldn’t believe. He had actually gone to the remote part of the park, not even noticing that. No one was there to help him now. Timothy tried to get up, but he couldn’t and the tack just went even deeper in his foot, and now he needed someone to pull it out. The only plushie that he could see near to him was Rooster Jose. Jose was pretty much the only Plushton citizen with whom Timothy didn’t get on well. He didn’t like Jose because of his arrogance aloofness. But at that moment he had to call him for help. Jose saw him when he trod on the tack, but he didn’t want to approach him before being called first. But as soon as Timothy called him for help, he ran towards him.
Jose helped him to get up and put him to sit on the bench. By pure accident, Jose had tweezers in his pocket and he somehow managed to pull the tack out of Timothy’s foot. They still decided that it would be better for Timothy to go to the hospital and prevent any kind of infection. Jose wanted to help him walk to the hospital. But the road to the hospital was long, and these two funny guys argued a couple of times until they reached the hospital. Jose left Timothy in front of the hospital, and went home. He regretted helping him on the first place, and Timothy regretted calling him for help at all.
“A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED.” Who knows, maybe there will be another dangerous situation, with a reversed roles, which will make Timothy and Jose friends for good.
