1: Little Suzie was at recess when Johnnie came up and tried to kiss her. "Get away, Johnnie!" she said.
2: Johnnie was sad! Suzie ran away screaming, "Boys have cooties!"
3: Suzie went and told Sammie and Karlie that poor little Johnnie had cooties. They pointed and laughed at him.
4: Johnnie went home and told his mommy that Suzie said he had cooties. "She just thinks you're cute," his mommy said. Then she baked him cookies.
6: It was Suzie's first day of high school and she was so nervous! She got all ready to go.
7: Suzie saw Johnnie from afar and saw how cute he was.
8: Suzie approached Johnnie and asked if he recognized her. He replied, "How could I forget you?"
9: Suzie was flattered! She thought that Johnnie liked her. Little did she know...
10: ... Johnnie only liked her as a friend. After she said that he had cooties, he got over her and moved on.
11: Now Suzie liked Johnnie and he didn't like her back. She realized that saying he had cooties when she was little wasn't the right thing to do. She wished that she had taken the opportunity when he had liked her. She hoped that he could forgive her.
12: Suzie went up to Johnnie the next day and said she was sorry. "I know what I did was wrong. You don't have to like me but I hope you can forgive me."
13: Suzie turned to walk away. "Wait Suzie," Johnnie said, " I accept your apology and I think I like you too."
