FC: A smile as sweet as spring | A Crazy Candy Tree
2: Thinking of you is like the Spring, You bring love and joy to everything.
3: Max, Nicholas and Delilah are three siblings living in Pleasantville. Max and Nicholas are twin brothers who are known as the best tree climbers in town. Delilah has never had a hard time keeping up with them, but when she isn't tree climbing she is making sure the two are staying out of trouble.
5: Not too long ago, their best friend AJ had fallen and broken his leg from a mysterious, crazy candy tree that bloomed the yummiest of sweets. No one in town had ever dared to climb and eat its sweets because it was rumored that the tree was cursed...
7: Although the stories they heard of the tree frightened them, all three siblings were curious about the candy it bloomed. Delilah was most careful out of the three and warned her brothers that they shouldn't go climbing the candy tree, but of course their sweet tooths seemed to be convincing them to do otherwise.
9: The next day Delilah decided to stay back from tree climbing and have a picnic at the park. She had a weird feeling that leaving her brothers alone wasn't a good idea, but since she's always kept them out of trouble she figured one day for herself wouldn't hurt anyone.
11: Max and Nicholas decided to go to the regular tree while Delilah went on her picnic. All their friends were already there playing and reading. Max couldn't help but think about all the yummy candy he had seen blooming from the tree and how something that looks so sweet could be cursed. All the thinking made him decide to pay the tree a visit...
13: Max ran faster and faster as he thought about all the yummy candy he was about to eat. The thought of the possible consequences in the back of his mind.
15: The candy tree looked sweeter than ever. "There was no possible way it could be cursed.", Max thought. It would be the highest tree he had ever tried to climb, but this didn't scare him. Once he began climbing he realized the branches were sticky and slippery.
17: As Max continued to climb, the sticky and slippery branches made his legs very tired and made it hard to balance. When he sat down on a branch pieces of hard candy started falling on his head. He was scared and couldn't escape the falling candy. Disappointed and frightened, Max carefully climbed down the tree.
18: laughter is an instant vacation
19: Before he left Max picked up pieces of candy from the ground and ate them. Surprised that they weren't the yummiest sweets he had ever tasted he walked back to the regular tree to find Nicholas. Max was confused about how a tree so pretty and sweet looking could be so evil. As he continued walking his tummy started grumbling and aching. The more he walked the worse the tummy ache got so he ran to Delilah.
20: Thinking of you is like the Spring, You bring love and joy to everything.
21: "For the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers are springing up and the time of the singing of birds has come. Yes, spring is here." ~ Song of Solomon 2:11-12 | Max knew Delilah would be angry with him because he disobeyed her. The tummy ache and guilt got worse and worse so he sat and cried. Max had learned his lesson that not everything is what it seems.
