Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve written a new story. But, I have one for you! And I do hope you enjoy it!! So, let’s get right into the new story!
Small Cow’s Shop
The little teddy was playing in the yard. With her was her brother Owl. They were sword fighting with some sticks. “Teeheehee!” the little teddy giggled, dodging one of Owls sword swings. Owl fell over and began laughing. Then, as he stood back up, he noticed someone walking towards them. He turned to fully see who it was. “Oh, hi Teddy Tedaloo,” he called cheerily to the newsbear. The little teddy turned to see Teddy Tedaloo walking to them. She waved energetically and smiled. “Hi Teddy Tedawoo!” she said happily, “What bwings you here?”
Teddy Tedaloo cleared his throat. “That’s Tedaloo,” he corrected the little teddy, a small smile forming on his lips, “and I’m here to tell you about a new shop that’s just opened up.” The little teddy looked at the newsbear quizzically. “A new shop?” she asked. Teddy Tedaloo nodded. “Oh yes,” he answered knowingly, “and very interesting shop at that. Maybe you should check it out. It’s straight down the road, and it isn’t too far.”
In just a matter of minutes, the little teddy and her brother were on their way, down to this new shop. “I wonder what kind of stuff they sell there,” the little teddy mused. Owl nodded. “Hopefuwwy they have candy!” he said excitedly. The two siblings giggled as the continued towards the shop.
As Teddy Tedaloo had told them, the shop wasn’t too far away. Before they new it, the little teddy and Owl would standing outside of a small shop. A sign above the door simply read “SHOP”. The little teddy looked through windows. “There’s nobody inside,” she told her brother. Owl walked up and looked inside. “You’re wight,” he agreed, “I don’t see anybody either. But maybe there in the back. The sign does say open.”
Te little teddy pushed open the door and her and Owl slowly walked inside. Looking around the shop, it seemed much like every other one they’d ever been in. And yet, there was a mysterious feel to it. The little teddy walked up the counter, curious as to why they still hadn’t seen a shopkeeper. “Hewwo!” the little teddy called out, hoping someone would hear her.
After a couple of minutes with no response, the little teddy and owl decided to leave. But just as they were about to walk out, they heard a small voice. “H-hewwo!” the voice called out, “Th-thank you f-fo-for coming to m-my shop!” The little teddy looked around for the source of the voice, but still couldn’t see anyone. But then they heard a small clopping noise from behind the counter. Then, to their suprise, a small figure appeared behind the register.
The little figure was a rather small cow, standing on a step stool. Neither sibling had ever seen a cow so small. “I-is there anyt-thing I can he-help you wif?” the cow asked, “I’m s-sure I have whate-ever you may n-need!” Owl shrugged. “We weren’t weally wooking for anything specific,” he told the small shop keep, “We’re jus bwowsing.” The little teddy nodded. “Pwus, it doesn’t wook yike you have anything special here,” she told the cow, who giggled. “Oh, I h-have more than y-you might th-think,” he assured the two, “J-ju-jus let me know w-what you need!”
The little teddy thought for a moment. What was something she really wanted but wouldn’t expect this small cow to have in his shop? She looked around and saw that despite all the things he had, he didn’t seem to have any toys of any sort. And she very much wanted a toy sword. She loved sword fighting with sticks, but she knew it would so cool to have an actual toy sword! She bounced excitedly and turned back to the shop’s little proprietor. “OH!” she exclaimed, “Do you have any toy swords? Me and my bwother need them for sword fighting!” Hearing her question excited owl, he began to flap his wings happily.
The small cow stood behind the counter, thinking. The little teddy and Owl were sure he was going to say he didn’t have any swords. But it wasn’t long before the cow was nodding. “I d-do bel-lieve I do-do!” he assured them. He slowly climbed down from his step stool and headed to a room in the back of the shop. He was gone just a short couple of minutes before returning with two toy swords. The small cow carefully hoisted the swords onto the counter as he climbed his step stool.
The little teddy couldn’t believe her eyes! These toy swords looked just like real swords! She and Owl both picked up a sword. For toys, they were pretty heavy. The little teddy swung her sword around to get a feel for it. She was so excited to have her own toy sword now! With a big smile on her face, she turned to the small cow and asked, “How much are the swords? We don’t have a wot of money, but we’ll give you what we do have.” The small shop keep giggled. “O-oh, you d-d-don’t owe me any-anything,” he answered, smiling, “They’re o-on the hou-house!”
The little teddy and her brother were surprised to hear this. “Are you sure?” Owl asked, “We don’t mind paying for such nice toys!” The small cow shook his head. “N-no worries,” he assured them, “Cons-sider them a g-gi-gift!” The little teddy clapped her paws together. “Thank you!” she exclaimed, “Thank you vewy much!” The small cow smiled again. Then something dawned on the little teddy. She noticed that he didn’t have any eyes. She quietly pointed this out to her brother, who was just as surprised as she was about it. They were curious about what happened to him, but they both felt it would be rude to ask him.
“It’s ok-ok,” he told the siblings, almost as if he were psychic, “I un-understand. It’s w-we-weird that I d-don’t have eyes.” The little teddy could feel herself blush. She was embarrassed that it was so obvious. Again, the small cow giggled. “When I-I was y-younger, I go-got attacked by a w-wild animal. Th-tha’s why I don’t h-h-have any eyes. And i-it’s why I st-stutter t-too.” Owl let out a big sigh. He couldn’t believe something like that could have happened to someone so nice. But, as if once again sensing his thoughts, the little shop keep laughed. “D-don’t worry ab-about it, my f-f-fwiends,” he giggled, “It w-was a wong t-time ago. And a-as you can s-see-see, I get awong j-jus fine!”
The two siblings nodded in unison. This small cow, despite being blind, was able to somehow run his very own shop. It was a very impressive feat. “OH!” the little teddy said happily, “We should pwobabwy be going home now.” Owl nodded in agreement. “Yeah, that’s true,” he said, “but we’ll definitewy be coming back to visit your shop! We wanna see what else you have here!” The three of them shared a laugh. Then the little teddy said, “Next time we can bwing some fwiends wif us!! I bet they would wove your shop!” The shop keep smiled proudly. “Th-thank you,” he replied happily, “I’ll b-be wooking f-fo-foward to seeing you ag-gain!”
The little teddy and her brother exited the shop, swords in hand. “That cow was vewy nice,” the little teddy said, swinging her sword around. Owl nodded. “Oh, yes,” he agreed, giving his own sword a swing, “I weawwy wiked him. We definitewy have to go back!” As the two of them headed back home, sparring with their new swords, the door to the shop opened once more. The small cow walked out and watched as the little teddy and her brother disappeared from view. “Th-they were vewy nice,” he said to himself, “I d-do hope to s-see them aga-again!”
Well, that’s our story for tonight. I do hope you enjoyed it! I shall do my best to write more stories if I can. Sometimes I just don’t get the time I would like to work on writing. But I’ll do my best to get more out! Thank you for stopping by to read my story!
Oh, one last thing before I go. I have considered trying to collect my stories into a book if I feel I’ve written enough. Would any of you be interested in purchasing a book if I were to put one out? Please, leave your thoughts in the comments below. Thank you again for stopping by!
