Bella- Age 4,

Bella was scared. She was not good at playing with other kids and she didn't know any of the kids here, so that made it scarier. She wished she could skip

pre-school, but her mom said it would be fun. She wasn't so sure about that. She took a deep breath and looked around. Her gaze stopped on a boy with

green eyes looking right at her. Green was her favorite color. Maybe he's scared too, she thought. She decided that it would be easier to be scared with a friend,

so she walked slowly up to him and said, "Hi. My name is Bella. Want to be friends?"
