April Showers Bring May Flowers
April knew she was in trouble when she saw Sunflower May glaring at her as she hurried back to her flowerpot.
"What is THAT?!" scowled the Sunflower, eyeing April's cute new friend.
"He's a field mouse," said April, her bottom lip quivering under the Sunflower's hard gaze.
"A MOUSE? We need bees to help us pollinate, not some stupid mice! Who told you to bring back a mouse anyway?" yelled the Sunflower. "Who's gonna help us pollinate now?"
"I don't know," sobbed April. "But he looked lonely and we're keeping him!"
Meanwhile Dahlia May was flushing as red as her crimson flowerpot. She was the one who told April to get a mouse, not some bees. She also knew April was sympathetic towards that stereotype of empty-headed "blonde" flowers and wouldn't tattle on her.
The mouse (whose name was Chester) liked April too; she was nice and played with him all afternoon. Chester (who was actually quite charming, for a mouse) got busy flirting with the elegant bird outside the window. They used the secret sign language of field critters to communicate that April needed some bees, and pronto.
Which is how a little field mouse saved 3 May flowers, despite April showers.
And also how the Sunflower woke up with lots of bee stings the next day.
