It was morning and Raspberry laid in bed still asleep under
her warm pink covers. She was in a deep comfortable sleep when
her mother knocked loudly on the door, "Get up and come
downstairs for breakfast, then go outside and help your brother."
Raspberry opened her eyes and yawned. She sat up in bed wondering
what Blueberry need help with. She stretched her legs, then she
stood up from her bed. She walked to her desk and took her pink
brush. She walked to her window and opened the curtains, then
looked outside as she brushed her long red silky hair. Under
the tree was Blueberry raking the leaves in the misty morning.
The fog was thick but she was still able to see him. The sun
was starting to rise and it wouldn't be long till the fog disappeared.
She loved the mist morning which only came around the fall season.
It was her favorite time of the year where it wasn't to cold
or to warm. When she was done, she sat the brush on her desk
and left her room.
She walked down stairs and into the dinning room just as her
mother laid a plate of eggs, bacon and toast on the table.
Raspberry sat down and ate quickly. She wanted to get outside
before the sun destroyed the fog.
When she was done, she took her plate to the kitchen and sat
it in the sink, then she left the house to her backyard. She
noticed the rake leaning against the house and took it. She walked
to join Blueberry and began raking.
"It's about time you got out of bed," Blueberry exclaimed.
"Just because you're an early bird that doesn't mean I am,"
"Well I could have used your help earlier. This yard was
covered in leaves," Blueberry told her.
Raspberry smiled at him, "I'm out here now and there's still
the rest of the yard to rake."
Blueberry smiled at her and then continued raking. Blueberry
went to the right side of the tree and raked while Raspberry
took left side and raked.
They raked the yard in patches as the sun rose and the fog began
to lift. They piled all the leaves under the tree till the pile
was very high. Raspberry was on one side of the pile raking the
last bit of leave onto the pile. She threw the small pile of
leave to the top and continued doing it till her pile was done.
Just then a pile of leave suddenly flew over the large pile and
landed on her.
"See how you like that!" Blueberry yelled.
Raspberry shook the leaves off of her and then dropped her rake.
She grabbed an arm full and threw it over the large pile, "This
is how I feel about it!"
Blueberry walked around the pile covered in leaves as he held
a pile of leaves in his arms. Raspberry prepared knowing what
he was going to do. As he threw it on her, she grabbed a pile
of leave and threw it at him. Before long they were throwing
leaves at each other and then the two fell over their rakes and
landed in the pile of leaves, laughing.
"We hadn't played together in a very long time," Blueberry
"Yeah and it feels great, I don't want to stop," Raspberry
"We're making the yard a mess though," Blueberry told
"We can clean it up later, lets just have fun together,"
Raspberry suggested, then she threw a pile of leaves at him,
burying him in leaves.
For the rest of the day, they spent time together playing, raking
