Brave Enough for Two
Olive and Hoot are best friends; they always have been, but even best friends like different things. Olive loves to read and finds her adventures in books. Hoot likes real adventures. Today it is Hoot’s turn to choose the adventure, and he has something extraordinary in mind. Hoot leads Olive into a basket hooked to multiple balloons, and off they float, a little higher than Olive expected. Everything is a more than Olives expects, but with Hoot there to reassure her, she goes with the flow. Their adventure comes to a bumpy end, and it is Olive’s turn to help Hoot when he isn’t feeling so brave. That’s what friends do.
