It was a warm sunny Saturday morning but Sapphire did not want to get up, but that was when she remembered… “We are going on an Easter egg hunt!!!!!!” Sapphire remembered leaping out of bed.
There were so many eggs to find but if she got to the party late they would be gone. So in 5 minutes flat Sapphire ran to the bathroom and came out all ready to go.
But as she was getting ready somewhere in the party host yard there was yet another commotion. A mother hen eggs were about to hatch so the mother hen had gone off to find some food not noticing a poor little egg that had begun to roll. It rolled and rolled until it found itself in a back porch behind a flower pot next to a plastic Easter egg…
“Mom” called Sapphire “I am going to the Easter egg hunt party at our neighbor’s house”
“O.K. have fun, bye!”
With that Sapphire dashed quickly to her neighbor’s house.
“Ding dong” the doorbell rang and the door opened.
“Hello Sapphire, come on in, you are here for the Easter egg hunt I suppose” A kind looking woman said as she opened the door.
“Yup” answered Sapphire stepping into the room.
It smelled delicious and chocolaty in the room it was as if everyone had opened the candy in the room already.
“The kids are in the back but if you need me I will be right here” the kind woman said “have fun!”
“Thank you” Sapphire called as she rushed out the back door.
“On your mark get set…”announced a kid who appeared to be the oldest.
“Phew” thought Sapphire “made it just in time”
“Go!!!!!!!!!!!!”Called the kid
With this Sapphire leaped onto the porch and grabbed a flower pot
“Aha!” thought Sapphire triumphantly placing 2 eggs in her pouch as she began to search for more eggs…
“Rumble, rumble crack pop”
Out came the chick and to the chicks surprised all it saw was lots and lots of colorful eggs like it self so the chick sat down awaiting the other fellow chicks to hatch. But they didn’t and soon enough the chick felt a warm sweaty hand around her and she was pulled up to the surface.
“Aww” cooed a voice and the chick stared at the huge sweaty creature holding her.
“I must have thought she was an Easter egg” Sapphire wondered aloud as a breeze brushed by them “But how can I get you home?”
“Hmm? The chick chirped cocking his head as its stomach rumbled
“Hey that gives me an idea thanks!” Sapphire laughed and began her plan right away.
Sapphire pulled out a packet of M&Ms and began to scatter them around the yard, hoping they wouldn’t melt and make a mess, and sure enough out came a mother hen and her chicks all in a neat line.
“Your one of them” whispered Sapphire.
.The chick turned and looked at her.
“Go on” Sapphire urged.
As she lowered the chick to the ground for her to hop off. The chick scrambled into line picking up an M&M and swallowing it with a “gulp” and Sapphire added “Happy Easter!”
