The Story of Two Brothers

There were two brothers Johnny and Mike. Mike was the youngest and had limits on

where he could play and ride his bike. Johnny could go anywhere. One day Mike

decided to ride his bike outside of the area he was allowed to play and ride. He

rode over a piece of wood with a nail in it and quickly his front tire was flat.

What was he going to do? What would he tell his parents? He quickly walked his bike

home and was about to hide it in the garage when his big brother Johnny walked up

behind him and asked him what was wrong. Johnny looked at the bike and said I can

fix that really fast and have you riding in no time. Mike was relieved and very

happy. Johnny said you must have ridden your bike in the new section of the

neighborhood where they are building houses and picked up a nail. Mike was starting

to get nervous. He pleaded with Johnny not to tell their parents where he had been.

He told Johnny he would pay him back if he would fix the flat and not tell their

parents. Johnny just laughed and said he would fix the flat. He said there was no

way Mike could pay him back.

Two months passed and Mike was playing video games in his room when suddenly Johnny

was at his bedroom door. Johnny looked scared and he asked Mike to help him. Johnny

said he was washing his hands in the sink when his new class ring fell down the

drain. He could see it, but he couldn’t reach it. Mike said sure he would help.

Mike’s hands were much smaller and his fingers were slimmer and longer than

Johnny’s. Mike carefully reached into the drain and pulled out Johnny’s shiny class

ring. Johnny was so happy. Mike reminded Johnny that even the youngest can pay back

a favor.

Actions done with kindness, no matter how small, make a big difference.
