A Story for B
One morning Brandon woke up to a loud B-B-B-B sound. He walked over to the window and looked down. He saw his big brother, Bobby, sitting on a brand new bike (motorbike). Bobby had a broad smile on his face as he checked and listened to the B-B-B-B of the engine. Brandon opened the window, held onto the frame, and shouted down, "Can I have a ride?" Bobby looked up and nodded his head slowly. Brandon quickly dressed and ran downstairs. He grabbed his black helmet before going out the back door. Bobby was sitting up proudly on his new bike, giving it gas and listening to the lip popping B-B-B-B of the engine. Brandon climbed on back and held tightly to his big brother’s waist. He was glad he ad a big brother and hoped that one day he could have a new bike too.
