Camp Out

One night, young John, Ted, and their parents were camping out. John's father was setting up the tent while John's mother was gathering the food they needed for the night.

"Aren't you glad to go camping out, John?" asked Ted.

"Kind of, yeah..." John muttered.

"You're not scared, are you?" Ted asked, a bit worried.

"Um... a little bit," John replied.

"Well don't worry. If there's a little thunder, I'll be here for you, to comfort you."


Later on...

John, Ted, and their parents were in their tent, eating some marshmallows and drinking some juice. Suddenly, there was some thunder which terrified John. The young boy jumped in his sleeping bag and yelped.

"What is it, John?" asked his mother.

"I- I heard thunder," John said in a scared, shaky tone.

"Now, John," Ted said, smiling warmly at his friend.

"Oh, yeah. Right. You're here to comfort me, thanks."

"Hey, John. How 'bout we sing the Thunder Song?" Ted asked.

"Okay," John said, starting to calm down a bit. Then he and Ted began to sing.

When you hear the sound of thunder, don't you get too scared
Just grab your thunder buddy and say these magic words
Forget you, thunder
You can kiss my butt
You can't get me, thunder, 'cause I'm with my friend

John and Ted blew raspberries at the thunder and laughed after that.

"Aw, thanks, Ted. I can always count on you to make me feel better during scary times," John smiled.

"You're welcome, Johnny," Ted said, when suddenly, it started to rain now.

"John, you're not scared of rain, too, are ya?" Ted asked.

"Not really. I'm actually scared of thunder more," John answered.

"Well like I said, Im here for ya, thunder buddy."

Ted then squeezed his stomach, which his voice box activated and said: "I love you!".

John smiled and the two friends hugged each other as the night went on.
