Amy woke up to a honking sound. Honk! Honk! She quickly climbed out of bed and knocked hard on her Father's bedroom door.

"Amy? Whaaaaat?" He said from underneath his covers.

'Don't you hear it?" She asked. Honk!

"No, hear what?"

"Listen" Amy whispered. Honk!

"Yes! I hear it! They're just geese!" He exclaimed.

"It might be them."

He groaned. "Get clothes on and check. I'll be out in a minute."

Amy rushed into her room, put on overalls, and tied her hair back in a single braid. Honk! Amy's Father got out of bed and put on his clothes, then appeared in Amy's doorway.

"I think it's them." Amy whispered Honk! Honk!

"Let's go and see" He replied, then motioned for her to follow.

Amy skipped past him and to the door. Before she opened it, she had a thought. What if Igor didn't make it? Oh, I should have took him with me in the truck. Tears sprouted from her eyes. She wiped them away and opened the door. It was them. Her geese. She counted them. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15. Who was missing? Long John, Stinky, Smelly, FeatherBrain, Jumper, Crazed, Crazy, Flap, Elf, Billy, Winger, Farmer Will, Chew, Gumbo, and Lucky. Where was Igor? More tears burst out of Amy's eyes. Her father appeared behind her.

"What is it? It's them, right?" He asked.

Amy turned around. "Igor. H-he didn't m-make it." Amy cried.

Her father sighed. Tears started pouring out of his eyes, also. The waited in the doorway for a long time, hoping that Igor would be hiding, or something. When they were about to give up and bring the geese inside, a bigger and stronger goose elegantly landed beside the others. Igor. He made it.

"IGOR! He made it!" Amy exlaimed. Honk!
