“Why the long face?” asked Kerstein “My grandma died” replied Nyree, Kerstein said “ I am so sorry about your grandma but would you like to do something, maybe a game?”. “ No actually I don’t feel like a game today, maybe tomorrow?” Said Nyree. Kerstein did everything to cheer up Nyree, but she always said “NO”.

Nyree will always say to Kerstein “ What do you think my grandma is doing right now?”. Kerstein said “ Come on let’s get Ice- cream”, “OK” said Nyree. So Kerstein and Nyree walked to their master and they saw him eating a ice-cream Kerstein and Nyree started to dig the sand the master was so confused “ What are doing” said the master. The master didn't know what they were doing so the master just gave his ice-cream to Kerstein and Nyree. So Nyree was so happy she had forgotten about her grandma.
