The Space Teddy

Teddy 39

Hello there! Welcome to a very special story. What makes it so special? This story is about someone very special. She’s my big sister, Teddy! She’s been an astronaut for about three years now. And so I think it would be pretty great to fictionalize her adventures! But, there is a strong tinge of truth to this story. Please keep that in mind, as I believe it will help you appreciate the story a little more. And so here we go with Adventures of a Space Teddy!

 

The Space Teddy

“Mission contwol, this is Teddy,” Teddy called over the radio, “I’m en route to the alien planet.” After a couple of moments, she received her response. “Roger that, Captain,” came the voice over her radio, “You may continue.” Teddy giggled. “Pwease, I’ve asked you before to just call me Teddy,” she answered, laughing, “There’s no need to be so formal!” A few seconds later, the voice over the radio said, “Copy that, Captain.” Teddy sighed and then switched off her radio.

As she returned her focus to her route, Teddy got thinking about how she became a space pilot. She had been a pilot for a number of years now. But she used to be a regular teddy who lived at home with her mommy and daddy. She was very attached to her mommy. And she missed her mommy and daddy. But she was called upon to be a space pilot and she didn’t really have a  choice but to go.

Teddy had spent many years taking care of her mommy. They had many adventures and had been through a lot together. But then it seemed that when her mommy needed her the most, she had to leave her. It was something that broke the pilot’s heart to think about. But it was also something that helped give her the strength to do a very important job.

Teddy remembered well a few years back, when everything changed for her. Her mommy was going through a very hard time. Her daddy had passed away. And she was struggling to make sense of the world. Teddy didn’t really know how to help her. This was the biggest thing that they had ever gone through. She was doing her best to give her mommy lots a hugs and snuggles, but it didn’t seem to help. But she didn’t think it was because she wasn’t doing a good job. She knew that what her mommy was going through was really hard, and she was going to need a lot of time.

Teddy had learned that he mommy’s daddy was to cremated. And that they were going to bury his ashes at his mom’s grave. So when it came time for them to go to the city where the cemetery was, Teddy did all she could to prepare herself for comforting her mommy. The trip to the cemetery was a long  one because it was in a different city. But it gave Teddy the time she felt she needed to figure out how to help her mommy.

By the time they reached the city, it was too late to do anything. So they got a hotel room. Her mommy, daddy, and her mommy’s brother went out to get some food. And Teddy decided to get a nap. But just as she was drifting off, she heard a strange humming noise in the room. The little bear shot up in bed and saw a large beam of light in the middle of the room. Teddy had to shield her eyes because the light was so bright. But as the light began to fade and she was able to see again, Teddy saw someone standing in the room.

Teddy saw that standing in the middle of the room was a small bear. The bear seemed to be a girl bear, wearing a pink dress and a red bow. Though small, the bear was bigger than Teddy, who was a very small bear. “Um…who are you?” Teddy asked the stranger. The bear walked close to the bed and extended her paw. “Hello, Teddy,” the bear answered, “My name is Fuzzy Bear. But you may just call me Fuzzy, if you like.” Teddy walked to the edge of the bed and shook her paw. “Why are you in my room,” she asked Fuzzy Bear, “And how do you know my name?”

“You may want to sit down,” Fuzzy bear told Teddy, “this may be a lot to take in.” The Teddy sat down at the edge of the bed. “I’m going to need you to trust me on this,” Fuzzy Bear began, “This may sound crazy, but I assure you that everything I’m about to tell you is completely true.” Teddy nodded. She didn’t understand why, but she trusted this strange bear. “I’m an alien,” Fuzzy continued, “but I suspect you guessed that already. I belong to an unnamed group of space pilots that help protect the entire universe. I’m here tonight because we need your help to keep everyone safe.”

Teddy couldn’t believe it. Though she did trust Fuzzy, she found it hard to believe that she was needed to protect the universe. “I understand that you feel you need to be here for your mommy,” Fuzzy told her, “But it is of the upmost importance that you come with me.” Teddy shook head. “No, I need to be here,” she told Fuzzy Bear, “My mommy needs me.” Fuzzy bear took Teddy’s paw in her own and smiled. “I understand your dilemma,” she assured Teddy, “But I promise you she’ll be ok. And, by coming with me, you’ll be helping to keep her safe.” Teddy shook her head again. “I don’t know,” she told the alien, “We’re not weaving until tomorrow. Can I think it over?” Fuzzy told her that she could think it over, but she would need to have an answer tomorrow. She then left.

Shaken up by the conversation she’d just had, Teddy tried to get some sleep. But she was having trouble doing so. So she laid in bed until everyone came back from dinner. And when her mommy did get back, she was actually laughing a little. It seemed that Teddy’s daddy and her mommy’s brother were helping her keep her spirits up, even just a little. A sudden sense of relief washed over Teddy as she saw that her mommy was smiling and laughing. She had been feeling a little guilty because she found that she was intrigued by the idea of going into space. But in that moment, she had made her decision. She was going to protect the universe.

The next day when everyone had left for the cemetery, Teddy waited patiently for Fuzzy Bear’s return. And it wasn’t too long before she did return. Teddy was getting a little excited thinking about becoming a space pilot. “Before I say yes,” Teddy told Fuzzy, “I have a question.” Fuzzy Bear smiled. “Of course,” she answered. Teddy sighed. “Do you know that my Mommy will be ok?” she asked, “I mean, are you sure that she’ll be ok?” Fuzzy Bear smiled again. “Yes,” she assured her, “I do. We aliens have the ability to see slightly into the future. And I know that if you come with me, your little sister, Teddy, will find her way to your mommy and that will lead to more of you siblings finding their way there, too.”

Teddy’s eyes lit up. She couldn’t believe what she’d just been told. Her sister was a very fun loving bear who loved potatoes. They hadn’t seen each other for a while, but they kept in touch. “Now you can’t tell her about this,” Fuzzy Bear told her, “or it could change the outcome of you coming with me.” Teddy nodded. “Just let me stay here until they get ready to weave,” she told the alien. “Of course,” Fuzzy agreed, “I’ll be back for you in a little while.” With that, the alien left. Teddy sat on the bed, wondering how to say goodbye to her mommy. She ultimately decided that she couldn’t do it. She just had to make sure that her little sister would be able to tell her mommy about her adventures when she went to space.

A little while later, everyone came back from the cemetery. Teddy’s mommy seemed in good spirits, despite what she had been out to do. She told her brother and Teddy’s daddy that they should start getting ready to head on home. They began packing up all their stuff. Teddy’s daddy set her carefully in his and her mommy’s bag. When he walked away, she slipped back out and hid behind a pillow. It was then that she got hit with an immense sadness. But she fought that back, knowing that she was going to be doing something very important. As soon as everyone left the room, she walked out from behind the pillow. With tears in her eyes, Teddy smiled. “Bye bye, mommy,” she said aloud, “bye bye, daddy.”

Teddy wiped her eyes as the beam of light carrying Fuzzy Bear lit up the room. “Are you ready?” Fuzzy Bear asked as the light faded. “Acshuwy,” Teddy answered, “I have a quick question. Is it possible to transmit an idea into someone’s mind?” Fuzzy Bear looked confused. “Yes,” she told Teddy, “We can do that with the technology we have. Why do you ask?” Teddy giggled. “I have an idea!” she exclaimed, “I know you said I’m not supposed to tell my wittle sister, but what if I do tell her and then we give daddy the idea to adopt her?” Fuzzy Bear laughed. “Now that’s actually a pretty good idea,” she said, “I think that’ll work. We can make our own fake adoption listing online and make sure he sees it. But we have to do it from the ship.” Teddy nodded and held Fuzzy’s Paw as the beam came down to take them to the ship.

Teddy had no time to admire the ship because they needed to get started on their plan right away. Teddy used a phone on the ship to call her sister. “Hewwo,” came the reply when her sister answered the phone, “I’m the Teddy!” Teddy smiled. It was so nice to hear her sister’s voice. “Hey little Teddy,” she said to her sister, “it’s your big sister. I need to ask you to do something.” She explained the whole situation with her sister. When she finished explaining, she asked, “So, do you think you can handle that? Mommy will really need someone to help look after herself.” Her little sister giggled. “Oh yes!” she answered happily, “I would wove to wive wif her! As wong as she has potatoes! Teheehee! I’m jus joking! But yes, of course!” Teddy smiled and thanked her sister. She got off the phone and she and Fuzzy Bear set up the rest of the plan.

Teddy spent a few of days on Fuzzy Bear’s ship, making sure that everything went according to plan. And it did! Her mommy was sad at first when she realized that Teddy wasn’t with them when they got home. They had called the hotel, but they couldn’t find her. But then they transmitted the idea of adopting another teddy into her daddy’s head. And when he went online to look, he found her little sister. He adopted her straight away. Then in just a couple of days, her little sister arrived. Her mommy was so happy to see her, too, which made Teddy very happy. “I don’t mean to rush things,” Fuzzy Bear said, walking up to the screen where Teddy was watching her family, “but we must start your training.”

The thought’s of her start as a pilot slowly slipped from Teddy’s mind as she approached an asteroid field near the planet. She set her ship to auto-pilot and then took out some paper and a pen. “I’ll have a very interesting story to tell her this time,” she said to herself, smiling, “I bet mommy will be excited when Teddy tells her I’ve sent another letter!” She began writing. She had written her little sister a letter everyday since she started her career as a space pilot. She’d had many adventures since she first went to space. And she had become one of the greatest space pilots of all time. All thanks to Fuzzy Bear’s training. She couldn’t wait to send the letter to her little sister. She finished writing as soon as she’d made it through the asteroid field. She gotten good at timing out her letters to her sister. She just knew that she had to finish this mission and then she could send her letter. “Let’s get this started!” she said excitedly to herself as she went off on her adventure. Little did she know that her little sister was about to start her own series of interesting adventures.

 

Writer’s block…

Oh dear. I’m afraid that in the middle of writing my newest story, I’ve hit a dry spell. I have this really great story idea that my little sister Teddy gave me. And I was getting along very well with the story in my mind. But now I’m having a little trouble continuing with it. So, unfortunately, it will be a while before I get the next story out. I do hope you all don’t mind. My stories seem to be pretty well received and I hate to disappoint anyone by not getting a new one out sooner.

So, please, be patient with me. I’ll try to make this story really worth the wait! Maybe it’ll be the biggest story yet! Please feel free to leave any advice on writer’s block in the comments below. Thank you very much. And, again, I apologize sincerely for the continuous wait on my next story.

Teddy 39

Little Teddy and the U.F.O.

Teddy 39

OH! Hello there! Thank you for joining me for another story! I’m very sorry that it’s been so long since my last story. Daddy has been having a rough couple of weeks at work and hasn’t really been up to helping me. He’s still feeling pretty rough, but he promised to help me today.

Our story tonight is about the unknown. And how just because we don’t understand everything, we don’t have to fear the unknown. I know present to you, Little Teddy and the U.F.O.

Little Teddy and the U.F.O.

The Little Teddy was playing out next to her house. She was pretending to collect potatoes, using rocks to stand in for the potatoes. “Oh I jus have so many potatoes!” She said happily as she added more ‘potatoes’ to her stash. She picked up another ‘potato’ and pretended to eat it. She giggled to herself and pretended to eat another.

As she went to pick up another ‘potato’, she suddenly heard whistling. She looked around to see Teddy Tedaloo setting up his news stand for the day. The little teddy walked up to the news bear. “Good morning, Teddy Tedawoo!” she said happily as she reached him. Teddy Tedaloo smiled. “That’s TedaLOO,” he told her, “And good morning!” He picked up a copy of his latest newspaper and showed it to the little teddy. “Have your heard about the U.F.O.?” he asked her. The little teddy’s eyes widened. “No,” she told the bear, “But pwease tell me about it!”

Teddy Tedaloo told the little teddy that people had been reporting sites of a U.F.O. flying above the woods at night. They claimed that a spherical craft with lots of bright lights would circle the sky above the woods for a while, and then just fly away. “OH!” the little teddy exclaimed as he finished explaining, “I wanna see the U.F.O.! I wanna meet awiens!” The little teddy ran off to tell some of her friends about the U.F.O.

The first place the little teddy went was the cave of her friends Dee and Little Dee. They greeted her happily when they saw her approach the cave. “Oh hi!” Dee said, smiling, “We’z vewy happy to sees you!” The little teddy started bouncing excitedly. “OH! We have to get Mickey and Zombie Jem!” she told her friends, “We’re gonna see a U.F.O.!” The two cave bears began bouncing too. “We want sees yoofos!!” Little Dee told her happily. The three friends hurried off to Zombie Jem’s house.

It didn’t take the three long to reach Zombie Jem’s house. The little teddy walked around to the side of the house to get the doorbell stick. She came back around and used the stick to ring the bell. Moments later the door was opened by a familiar looking humen. “Why hello there,” Sparkie said when as she opened the door, “How are you all doing?” The little teddy and two cave bears all smiled. “Were doing well,” the little teddy answered, “We jus need Zombie Jem so can hang out in the woods and wait for the U.F.O.”

It turned out that Zombie Jem was out with Shakie. “Don’t worry though,” Sparkie assured everyone, “They’ll be home very soon. Now, why don’t you tell me about this U.F.O.?” The little teddy explained what Teddy Tedaloo had told her. Sparkie smiled and nodded. “Ok,” she began, “they should be getting home just about now. So you can go wait for the U.F.O. with him. Just be very careful!” The little teddy and her friends all promised to be safe.

A few moments later, Shakie walked through the front door, followed by Zombie Jem and Mickey. “Oh yey!” the little teddy said happily, “Mickeys here too! No we dont have to get him!” Zombie Jem and Mickey both walked over to hug their friend. She explained the plan to wait for the U.F.O. and meet the aliens. “Oh, that sounds fun!” Mickey told her. “Oh yes,” Zombie Jem agreed, “Let’s do this!” So the friends headed back out into the woods.

They decided to wait in the woods near the Dee’s cave. They could set up some chairs in the clearing and began waiting. “Oh! This fun!” Little Dee exclaimed as he brought out some snacks from the cave. As he began to give some snacks to everyone, he heard a rustling in the trees. Everyone else heard it too, and when they looked around, they saw T jumping around the trees. “Hi, everyone!” he said cheerily, hopping down from the tree, “What are you all doing?” Dee clapped his paws together. “We wait for yoofo!” he told the mischief maker. “What’s a yoofo?” T asked.

The little teddy explained everything to T. “I’ve seen this U.F.O. before,” he told his friends. “Really?” Mickey asked. “Oh yes,” T answered, “I’ve never seen any aliens, but I’ve seen the U.F.O.” The little teddy was getting so excited that she began to bounce. “Oh, look at her,” Zombie Jem laughed, “she’s really excited for this U.F.O.! Let’s all bounce around with her to help pass the time!”

The friends bounced around the woods for hours until it started to get dark. “Oh!” the little teddy said excitedly, “it’s almost time!” The friends gathered back at the clearing by the cave and waited. It wasn’t too long before they got to see what they wanted. The sky began to light up. They heard a loud rumbling coming from far off. It quickly grew louder, and soon they saw the U.F.O. coming towards them.

Soon the U.F.O. was right above them. It began to descend and soon it had landed in front of the friends. “OOH!” the little teddy exclaimed, “U.F.O.!” Everyone gathered together as a door opened on the spacecraft and a ramp lowered. A form appeared at the doorway of the ship. A form that looked bearlike. The figure began walking down the ramp towards the friends.

It turned out that the figure was indeed a bear. “Greetings,” the bear said, waving. The little teddy walked up to bear and waved happily. “OH! Hewwo there,” she said happily, “What’s your name?” The Bear smiled. “Oh, I’m sorry, let me introduce myself,” she began, “My name is Fuzzy Bear, but you can just call me Fuzzy!” The rest of the friends came up and introduced themselves. They even invited her to eat with them.

“So, what made you come to Earth?” Zombie Jem asked as Little Dee got together some snacks for Fuzzy. The alien bear shrugged. “Oh, I was just curious to see what it was like here,” she answered. The cave bears giggled. “Thas funny!” Dee laughed. “Oh yes!” Little Dee agreed, “Iss just Earf!” Everyone laughed and then began eating their snacks. Fuzzy really enjoyed the Earth snacks. “These are so yummy!” she said, eating a snack the little teddy had given her, “What are they called again?” The little teddy smiled. “Oh! Tha’s a potato!!” she told the alien bear. “Well it’s very yummy!” Fuzzy told her!

After eating their snacks, the friends talked about her planet. It turned out to be very similar to Earth. “We just call our planet Home,” she explained to them, “it looks very much like Earth. We even have many of the same animals and foods. But some, like these yummy potatoes don’t grow on Home.” The friends loved learning about Home. T was happy to hear that they even had mischief makers there. “Mischief is very important!” he proudly told everyone.

After talking with their new friend for a while, everyone started to get tired. “Do you have to go back?” Mickey asked Fuzzy. She shook her head. “No, I plan to stay here for a while,” she answered. The little teddy began to bounce excitedly. “OH! Can we all stay the night in your cave, Dee and Little Dee?” she asked the cave bears. The two bears nodded happily. “Oh yez!” Dee said happily, “We be happy if everone stay!” Fuzzy Bear smiled. “Thank you very much for being so nice everyone!” she said, smiling, “Many movies about Earth we have on Home make it seem like you’re all mean and scary!” Zombie Jem laughed. “Actually, many of movies make other aliens seem mean and scary too!” he told her. Everyone laughed. They then settled down for a good night’s sleep.

THE END

Well thank you all for joining me tonight. I hope you enjoyed my story. And though the friends in story didn’t judge the alien bear, many people tend to judge others because they don’t understand their differences. But this isn’t a good way to do things. You should never judge first. It can be very problematic. So even if you didn’t like the story (though I very much hope you did), please know that something being unknown doesn’t make it bad. Thank you all. Please leave any comments you have in the comments section below.

A question from the author..

Teddy 38

Oh, hello there, everyone! Thank you for joining me. Today I would like to put forth a question for you all. Maybe a few questions, actually. I do hope you won’t mind.

So, as a writer, it is my job to keep the reader interested in the story. Otherwise, nobody would read my stories. And that would be quite dissatisfying for me. I would maybe one day like to publish a book of my short stories, if you, my readers, think it would be a good idea. But to do so, I think I would need a lot more stories to be included.

So, here’s the questions. As readers of my stories, what kind of adventures would you like to see the little teddy and her friends go on? Are there any characters you would like to see more of? Would you like to become a character in a story? These are all questions that will help me in my venture as an author. As I said already, I would like to consider publishing a book of short stories. And your answers to my questions will help me be able to get to a point where that could become a very real possibility.

Well, that is all for me. Please, leave your answers in the comments below. And, if you weren’t aware, my little sister Teddy and I both do our best to like and respond to comments left on the blog. So feel free to look back on comments you’ve left in the past. You may just like our reply to you! Thank you very much.

Zombie Jem’s New Home

Teddy 39

Oh, hello everyone! Welcome to a special story time. Our story today is a special one as it was requested by Teddy’s good friend Zombie Jim! It’s a shorter story, but I think it’ll be very good nonetheless! Please enjoy Zombie Jem’s Moving Day!

Zombie Jem’s New Home

The little teddy was on her way to Zombie Jem’s cemetery. He had called for his friends to come and help him with a project. But he wouldn’t tell them what it was until they were all there. And so she was hurrying to his place, excited to hear what the project was.

By the time she reached the cemetery, Mickey, T, the two cave bears, Dee and Little Dee, and Teddy Tedaloo were already there. Zombie Jem walked out to meet the little teddy. “Thank you for coming,” he told her happily, “now for the project.” Everyone gathered together, curious as to what the project would be. “This may be a bit surprising,” the zombie told his friends, “but I’m moving.”

Everyone was surpised, but they were also very excited. “Ooh! Where are you moving?” the little Teddy asked. Zombie Jem laughed. “Oh, I’m just moving to a nice little house right behind the cemetery,” he explained. Everyone laughed. “I don’t have a lot of stuff,” Zombie Jem continued, “and that stuff’s all been moved. I just wanted to invite you over.” He started to lead his friends to his new home.

“So, what brought upon this sudden move?” Teddy Tedaloo asked as he and everyone else followed their undead friend. “Oh, that,” he replied, “Well, I was walking around the cemetery when these two humans, one man one woman walked by. They saw me and asked me why I was in the cemetery. When I told them I lived there, the woman human insisted that I come live with them. To my surprise, the man human was quite content with the idea. The woman human said she could make me a nice coffin to sleep in.”

“Oh! Tha vewy nice!” Little Dee said cheerily, “Dee and me don’t know many hoomums!” Dee nodded. “Oh yez,” he agreed, “will be fun to meet hoomums!” The little teddy clapped her paws together. “Oh! Tell us more about these humens, pwease!” she said to Zombie Jem. He nodded and said, “Well, as I said, there are two of them,” he told his friends, “The man human is Shakie and the woman human is Sparkie. As you may have guessed, Sparkie likes to make things, like jewelry. She’s quite good too. Oh, and they’re Jewish and will be getting ready to observe Shabbat when we arrive.”

The little teddy didn’t really understand what it meant to be Jewish, so Zombie Jem explained it as best he could to everyone. He told them about Judaism and the Jewish people. The little teddy was excited to learn. Her mommy and daddy at home weren’t Jewish and didn’t practice any religion, so it was nice to learn so much.

Even though he’d told them it was close, Zombie Jem’s friends were still surprised by how close it was. In about five minutes, they reached a small house. “How do you get in exactly?” Mickey asked, “There’s no step ladder or anything to reach the door knob.” The zombie laughed. “I just ring the bell, and someone will answer the door,” he answered. He went to the side of the house and came back with a large stick. He used the stick to ring the doorbell.

Moments later, the door was answered by a friendly looking woman. At first she seemed a bit surprised to see so many teddys with her new housemate. But then she smiled. “And who might these lovelies be, Jem?” she asked pleasantly. Jem smiled and then began to introduce his friends. After he introduced her, the little teddy held out her paw. The human, whom they all assumed to be Sparkie, laughed lightly, then bent down and shook her paw. “It’s vewy nice to meet you, Sparkie,” the little teddy said happily. Sparkie smiled. “It’s lovely to meet you too,” she replied.

Sparkie invited them in for dinner. She told them that they were getting ready to observe Shabbat. The little teddy and her friends surprised her with their knowledge of it. They didn’t tell her that Zombie Jem had told them all about it on their way over. When they came in, they were greeted once more. This time by a man whom they knew from Zombie Jem to be Shakie. He then led everyone to the dining room where Sparkie was going to light the Shabbat candles.

They had a just enough time before the candles were to be lit to set a place at the table for Zombie Jems friends. Jem took a moment to talk to Sparkie about his friends. She told him that she was happy that he invited them over. She quickly poured everyone a glass of apple juice and then they gathered around the dining room table. Sparkie lit the shabbat candles and said a Hebrew blessing over them. Zombie Jem had explained this all, but the little teddy was enthralled in seeing it herself.

Sparkie said one more blessing over the bread they were to have with dinner. Then she and Shakie said one over the apple juice. And then it was time to eat. They had fish, which Shakie told them was mackeral, salad, and potatoes. The little teddy was excited for the potatoes. “PammyBear loves potatoes,” Zombie Jem explained to Sparkie and Shakie. “Oh yes! I wove potatoes so much! Thare jus so yummy!” Shakie laughed. “Well, we all have our favorite foods,” he said cheerily, serving some more potatoes to the little teddy.

The friends all enjoyed the food. “Is like picnic,” Little Dee said happily, taking a bite of his fish. Teddy Tedaloo nodded. “Right you are, my cave dwelling friend,” he agreed. T and Dee were talking happily with Shakie as they ate their meals. “We don usewy go far fwom ar cave,” Dee told him, “But this vewy fun!” Shakie smiled. “Well, we’re more than happy to have you all over.” T smiled and took a drink of his juice. “Well thank you very much!” he replied happily.

Once they were done with their meal, Zombie Jem asked Sparkie if she could show them some of her work. “Oh that would be really cool,” Mickey told her, “We know you can’t work now, but showing us is fine, right?” Sparkie nodded. “Of course!” she answered happily, “I would love to show you some of my work!” Everyone was excited to see her work.

Sparkie’s jewelry was quite impressive. She had a good variety of jewelry. The little teddy enjoyed seeing all the handmade jewelry. Sparkie showed her a selection of necklaces she had made to look like apothecary bottles. The little teddy really enjoyed them. She found one that was called an emergency tea necklace that she really liked. But when she remembered that she didn’t have any money, she got disappointed. Zombie Jem noticed this and then whispered something to Sparkie. Sparkie smiled and then picked up the emergency tea necklace.

“Do you like this one?” she asked the little teddy. “Oh yes,” the little teddy answered, “It’s weawwy pwetty!” Sparkie knelt down and put the necklace around the little teddys neck. “Here, you can have this,” she told her, smiling. The little teddy’s eyes lit up. “You mean it?” she asked excitedly, “I can get some money fwom my mommy and daddy to buy it.” Sparkie shook her head. “Oh no, it’s fine!” she assured the little teddy, “Jem said you’re a very good friend. A friend of his is a friend of ours. And friends give friends gifts.” The little teddy showed all her friends the necklace. She was so happy.

When it was time to head home, Sparkie and Shakie walked everyone to the door. “I’m gonna walk everyone home,” Zombie Jem told them. Sparkie and Shakie both smiled. “That’s fine, Jem,” Shakie told him. He then knelt down. “It was very nice to meet you all,” he told Jem’s friends, “We would love to have again sometime!” Sparkie nodded, kneeling down next to Shakie. “Oh yes,” she agreed, “It would be lovely if you could come by again.” The little teddy smiled. “Oh I think we can do that!” she answered happily, “Espeshuwy if thares more potatoes!”

As they walked home, everyone told Zombie Jem how much fun they had and how nice his new home was. “I thought Sparkie and Shakie were quite nice!” T told Jem. “Oh yes,” Dee agreed, “Theys vewy nice! And had wots of yum yums!” Zombie Jem smiled. “I’m glad you liked them, everyone,” he told his friends. “Oh, they were quite nice,” Teddy Tedaloo said, “And Sparkie had some very nice jewelry.” The little teddy looked at the necklace Sparkie had given her. She was very happy to have met Zombie Jem’s new friends.

,By the time they got to the little teddy’s home, everyone else had split off to go home. Mickey stayed with Zombie Jem and the little teddy so he could walk back with Jem. The little teddy hugged her friends. “Thank you again for inviting us to your new home!” she said happily as she headed inside. “You’re very welcome, PammyBear,” her undead friend answered, “We’ll have to do it again!” The little teddy nodded happily and then went inside. Zombie Jem and Mickey walked back, discussing the fun time they had just had.

THE END

And there we are! The story was longer than I had expected, but sometimes I just get caught up with a story. I do hope you all enjoyed it! Please leave me any feedback you have! I hope you all have a nice day! Maybe we’ll have another surprise story one of these days!

Little Teddy and the Mischief Maker

Teddy 38

Oh, hello! Welcome to another story time! I’m very happy to see you all again! My stories seem to be quite popular. Before we get to our story, I would like to take a moment to recognize two writer bears who have inadvertently help give me the confidence to begin my own writing career. Teddy Tedaloo (@TeddyTedaloo) and Mawson Bear (@MawsonBear) are both published authors and are both very nice bears. Please, do check them both out when you can!

Now, our story tonight is full of mischief. There are many out there who like to cause trouble. Sometimes, it’s just their way of being playful. Not all trouble is malicious. Some is quite benign. The mischief in our story is of the benign nature. But I won’t give too much away. Let’s get right into the story. It is titled “Little Teddy and the Mischief Maker”.

 

Little Teddy and the Mischief Maker

The little teddy was walking in the woods with her friends Zombie Jem and Mickey. They were going on another picnic at Dee and Little Dee’s cave. They had grown quite fond of the two cave bears. “I bwought two extwa speshul potatoes,” the little teddy told her friends, “I think they will weawwy yike them!” Mickey smiled. “I’m sure they will,” he agreed.

It had rained the night before so the ground was pretty slick. The little teddy tripped on a rock and, as she tried to get her balance, slipped and fell in the mud. Zombie Jem and Mickey carefully ran to her. “Are you ok, PammyBear?” Zombie Jem asked as he and Mickey reached down to help her up. But to his surprise, the little teddy was giggling. “Teeheehee! That was fun,” she laughed. Mickey laughed as they picked up their friend.

After cleaning up the little teddy, the three friends started back towards the cave. But when Mickey went to grab their picnic basket, he couldn’t find it. “What the?” he looked around, but couldn’t find the basket. “Wha’s the matter?” the little teddy asked him. Mickey shrugged. “Our picnic basket seems to have disappeared,” he answered her, still looking around. “How is that possible?” Zombie Jem asked. Mickey shrugged and shook his head. The little Teddy and Zombie Jem began helping his search.

After searching for about twenty minutes, the three friends were just about ready to give up. “Well, at least we didn’t plan this ahead of time,” Zombie Jem said. “Yeah, but its so disappointing that Dee and Little Dee won’t get to twy my potatoes,” the little teddy replied, hanging her head. “OH!” Mickey called out, “Found it!” The little teddy and Zombie Jem turned to Mickey and saw that he was pointing at a tree. They looked up and saw that their picnic basket was in the tree, hanging from the highest branch.

“How the heck did it get up there?” Zombie Jem asked, trying to figure out how they were going to their basket back down. “Tha’s a weawwy good question,” the little teddy answered, “How are we going to get it back down?” They determined that since none of them were good at climbing, there best bet was to try and knock it down with rocks. They all walked around looking for the biggest rocks they could still throw. But, when they got back to try and knock the basket down, they saw that their basket was now sitting at the base of the tree.

“What?” the little teddy questioned, “It was jus up in the twee. How did it get back down?” She went over to pick it up and noticed that it was much lighter than when they had packed it. She opened it up and was shocked to find it empty. “The foods are all gone,” she told Zombie Jem and Mickey. “What,” Mickey said confused, “How can it all be gone?” Zombie Jem looked up and saw that the contents of their basket were floating in the air where the basket had just been.

“What is going on here?” Mickey asked aloud. Just then, the friends heard a light giggling coming from behind them. They turned around, but nobody was there. Then they heard more giggling, this time from above them. They looked up, but again, nobody was there. “Who’s there?” Zombie Jem called out. But there was no answer. Suddenly, one of the little teddys potatoes fell from where it was floating. Then everything else followed. But it seemed that everything slowed down just before hitting the ground.

The three friends began gathering all of their picnic supplies. After they got them all together, Mickey went to get the picnic basket, only to find it missing again. “It’s gone again!” he exclaimed. Zombie Jem and the little teddy turned to see that their basket was indeed gone again. The heard giggling from behind the tree. Mickey ran around the tree, but found nobody. “Who the heck is messing with us?” he asked aloud as he walked back around.

When Mickey got back around the tree, he found the little teddy and Zombie Jem scrambling to catch all of their food, which was flying around in the air. The little teddy giggled as she chased her potatoes around. “Teeheehee,” she laughed, “this is siwwy and fun!” As he managed to catch some cookies, Jem said, “It may be fun, but I would much rather our food stop flying around so we can get back to out picnic.” As if he had spoken magic words, all the food fell to the ground.

The three friends gathered up their food and other picnic supplies. They put it all into the basket, this time without incidence. Once they were sure they had gotten all of their things together, they headed off in the direction of the cave. But they hadn’t gotten very far when they heard a faint sniffling. “Wha’s that?” the little teddy asked, “Is someone cwying?” They looked around to find the source of the sniffling. The little teddy soon found the source.

“Wook up there,” the little teddy said, pointing up. Zombie Jem and Mickey looked up to see a small bear sitting where their stuff had been up in the tree. “Hey,” Mickey called up to the bear, “come down here!” The bear wiped his eyes. “No!” he yelled down to the three friends. “Come on, pal,” Zombie Jem tried, “we just want to talk.” Again the bear yelled down, “NO!” The little teddy rummaged through the picnic basket. She pulled out a potato and held it up. “I’ll give you this potato!” she told the bear. This time the bears ears perked up. Then he vanished.

Moments later the small bear appeared before the friends. “How did you do that?” Mickey asked the bear, surprised by what he had just seen. “Potato, please,” the bear asked the little teddy, ignoring Mickey. He held out his paw and the little teddy gave him the potato. He took a bite and then smiled widely. “Oh, this is quite yummy,” he told her happily. The little teddy giggled. “It is nummy, isn’t it?” she asked, smiling.

“Why were you crying?” the little teddy asked the bear, after he had finished eating the potato. “Oh,” the small bear sighed, “I thought we were all having fun, but you didn’t like my games.” Mickey and Zombie Jem exchanged glances. “What games?” Zombie Jem asked. “When I was hiding your stuff,” the bear explained, “and when I made it all fly around.” Mickey walked up to the bear. “Wait, that was you?” he asked, “How is that possible?”

“Well, I’m a mischief maker,” the bear explained. He giggled and bowed. “My name is T,” he continued, “It’s a pleasure to meet you.” The little teddy scratched her head. “Mischief maker?” she asked, puzzled. “Yep,” T replied, “It’s my job to cause mischief wherever I go. But only good mischief, never bad.” Zombie Jem laughed. “I didn’t know that mischief maker was a job,” he said, “but that’s pretty great.” T sighed. “We normally like to have fun with others, but you all seemed more frustrated with my games,” he said flatly.

The three friends laughed. “No, no!” Zombie Jem assured T, “We weren’t frustrated at all! In fact it was quite fun.” T shrugged. “Then why did you want me to stop?” he asked confused. Mickey smiled. “Because we’re going to our friends cave,” he explained, “to have a picnic!” T’s eyes lit up. “OHH! I’m sorry,” he told the three, “I didn’t mean to keep you from something so fun!” The little teddy giggled again. “Oh it’s ok!” she told T. Then she had an idea. “OH!” she exclaimed, “Why don’t you come wif us?” T clapped his paws together. “Oh! Really?” he asked happily, “Is it really ok?” The three friends nodded.

On the way to Dee and Little Dee’s cave, the three friends got to know T a little better. In a short time, the little Teddy could tell they had made a really good friend. “So you can really use magic,” Zombie Jem asked. “Oh yes!” the bear happily replied. He then demonstrated some of his magic by disappearing and reappearing multiple times. He then turned to the little teddy. “Do you have another potato?” he asked her, “If so, could I hold it? I promise not to eat it.”

Reluctantly, the little teddy handed over her other potato. T took it and tossed it high into the air. It landed back in his paw. Then to everyone’s amazement, another potato fell down. He caught it too and handed it to the little teddy. “Here, for the one I ate earlier,” he said with a smile as she took the potato. “Oh, thank you,” the teddy smiled, “Now I still have two speshul potatoes for Dee and Little Dee!” T smiled. He was happy to have met such nice bears, despite their misunderstanding. They continued happily to the cave so they enjoy their picnic.

A Hedgehog Trumps at Midnight

Teddy 39

If you would like to meet these gusts yourself, please check out their twitter account. Their handle is @slug_soup. You’ll sure to find something interesting from this group. Now, please, enjoy the story!

A Hedgehog Trumps at Midnight

The little teddy was in the forest. She was hanging out with her friends Zombie Jem, Mickey, and her new friends Dee and Little Dee. They had decided to have another picnic since their last one had been such fun. And this time they had more food to share with their cave bear friends. They had decided to have their picnic at night because Dee and Little Dee had told them how pretty it was outside their cave at night.

And it certainly was. The light from the cave seemed to light up their whole picnic area. “It’s all so pwetty,” the little teddy said, looking around the forest. “Oh yes,” Dee said, coming out of the cave, “I fink is bestes part of the fores!” He walked over to the picnic area and set down a huge handful of chocolate. “Oh, that looks yummy,” Mickey said, picking up a piece and popping it into his mouth. “I agree,” Zombie Jem said, “it does look quite yummy.” He grabbed a piece of chocolate for himself and one for the little teddy. They both smiled as they ate they delicious treat.

The little Teddy was about to give everyone a potato when they heard a sound. Like a faint whistling. And as soon as it started, it stopped. The little teddy handed everyone a potato and then took one for herself. “I hope you all yike these potatoes,” she told everyone, “Thare some of my most speshul potatoes!” She went to take a bite of her potato when they heard the sound again. A little louder this time. But it still sounded like a faint whistling.

“Hmm…sounds like the trumping,” a voice came from nowhere. Everyone looked around until they suddenly noticed Teddy Tedaloo standing at the entrance of Dee and Little Dee’s cave. Little Dee jumped when he saw the bear who seemed to appear out of thin air. “OH!” he yelped, “Wheres you did comes from?” Teddy Tedaloo smiled. “Oh, you know,” he answered, walking towards the picnic area. He picked up a piece of chocolate and ate it. “You hear that?” he asked everyone. The little teddy and her friends listened closely. And sure enough, they heard the whistling. “It’s the trumping,” Teddy Tedaloo said.

“Wha’s the Twumping?” the little teddy asked the bear. “Oh, let’s say it’s a…notification” Teddy Tedaloo answered, “to let us know they’re coming.” This piqued Zombie Jem’s curiosity. “Who’re they, exactly,” he asked the bear. Teddy Tedaloo laughed. “Oh, you’ll see soon enough,” he replied. Suddenly they heard the whistling again. And it was getting louder. “They’ll be here soon,” the bear told everyone. Dee and Little Dee both began jumping excitedly. “Oh new frens!” Little Dee said excitedly, “Wheres they at?”

As if on cue, a light fog filled the area. And deep in the fog was a figure. Ambling slowly towards the group, the figure grew in size until everyone could see who was walking toward them. The figure was in fact, multiple figures, walking in a single file line. The little teddy counted five frogs and two hedgehogs in the line. They stopped in front of the picnic area. Then a small frog wearing an orange shirt walked out from the line. The little teddy walked toward the frog. “Oh hewwo,” she said happily, “it’s so nice to meet you!!”

The little frog just looked at the little teddy for a minute. Mickey came up to the little teddy. “Um…what’s your name?” he asked. “Tico,” the little frog said simply. “Well, it’s a pleasure to meet you,” Mickey said, “And what about them?” Upon hearing him ask, each member of the line stepped forward and introduced themselves, quickly stepping back afterwards. “Happy Tico!” a jolly looking frog said. “Lavender,” came the answer from a small light green frog. “Rod,” said a slightly larger frog with red spots on his front paws. The smaller of the two hedgehogs stepped forward. “Quatdgy,” the little hedgehog said before walking off. A taller, skinny frog stepped forward. “Jenkin,” the frog said, then followed Quatdgy off into the fog. Finally, the larger hedgehog stepped forward and stood next to Tico. “Ed-dy” she introduced herself. “Why are you here,” Zombie Jem asked, confused. A slight smile appeared on Tico’s face. “Soup,” came their answer.

“Soup?” Zombie Jem questioned. Tico nodded. “Yes, soup,” the little frog said and then stepped back into the line. Moments later, Quatdgy came back, holding a stack of bowls. The little hedgehog handed a bowl to everyone and then shuffled off back to the line. The tall frog, Jenkin, came back and handed everyone a spoon. He too rejoined the line then. Once he was back in line, Ed-dy walked off. She came back shortly, pulling a large cauldron on wheels. She stopped the cauldron by the picnic area and walked off again.

Little Dee walked up to the cauldron, curious to see what was in it. He was expecting soup, but was surprised to see that the cauldron was empty. “Where soup?” the Cave bear asked Tico, “I is hungry!” Tico pointed in the direction Ed-dy had headed. Little Dee looked and saw that the hedgehog was walking back with a ladle. She reached the cauldron and began stirring. Suddenly, everyone heard a variety of sounds. The noises were all coming from the line where the strange visitors were standing. Mickey sniffed the air. “Wait a minute,” the small bear said, “are they…”

“Trumping,” Tico cut him off. He walked up and stood next to Ed-dy. “Twumping?” the little teddy asked, “what’s twumping?” The little frog simply pointed back to the line. Tico then took Little Dee’s bowl and held it out to Ed-dy. “Slug,” the little frog said to her. “Slug,” Ed-dy repeated before filling the bowl. Zombie Jem was amazed at how she filled the bowl when the cauldron had just been empty. “Soup,” Tico said, pointing to Jem. He walked up and Tico took his bowl and held it out. “Creamy tomato,” the little frog said. Ed-dy repeated this and then filled the bowl.

This went on until everyone had a full bowl of soup. The little teddy was delighted to have a bowl of potato soup. Mickey got a bowl of veggie beef, which smelled delightful. Dee received a bowl of cream of mushroom. Everyone was excited to try their soups that their odd guests had delivered. Tico nodded at everyone. “Soup,” the little frog said. Everyone excitedly tried their soups. And not surprisingly, everyone loved their soups.

“That was delicious!” Mickey said happily after finishing his fifth bowl of soup. Everyone had tried each others soups and none could decide which soup was the best. Dee was licking his bowl clean to make sure he got everything. “Oh!” he said happily, “Soup! Is vewy goods! Little Dee and I is so fulls now!” Little Dee clapped his paws together. “Oh yes,” he agreed, “is so goods!” Ed-dy smiled. “Good,” she said flatly. Jenkin went around and took everyone’s spoons while Quatdgy collected everyone’s bowls.

Once everything  had been collected, Quatdgy and Jenkin walked back into the fog, followed by Ed-dy and her cauldron. They came back and Quatdgy and Jenkin got back in line. Ed-dy stood in front of the friends and bowed her head. “Thank you so much for the nummy soups,” the little teddy said to the hedgehog. Tico stepped forward. “We are glad you enjoyed Ed-dy’s soup,” the little frog answered, “We shall be taking our leave now.” Ed-dy raised her head and took a spot at the far end of the line. Tico went to the opposite end.

The line of strange frogs and hedgehogs turned and started walking into the fog. They then began trumping as they disappeared. “Well they were an interesting bunch,” Zombie Jem said when they had completely vanished into the fog. The Fog seemed to disappear with them. “They were odd, but I did realy enjoy them,” Mickey said. “They gived us nums!” Little Dee added happily, “We do loves nums!” The little teddy giggled. “I hope we see them again one day!” she said. “Oh, I’m certain you will,” they heard Teddy Tedaloo say. He was walking away from them into the woods. “He’s an odd one too,” Zombie Jem said as the bear too disappeared. “But I yike him,” the teddy told her undead friend. The friends spent the night discussing the newest of the many odd friends they had made.

Little Teddy and the Giants

Teddy 38

Oh hello, everyone! Thank you for joining me for a new story. I think you’ll all enjoy tonight’s story. We have a couple of guest stars in our story tonight! But you’ll have to read the story to discover who they are! So, here is tonight’s story. Little Teddy and the Giants

Little Teddy and the Giants

The little teddy was in the forest. She was hanging out with her sister, Beary, her brother, Owl, and her two friends, Zombie Jem and Mickey.  The five of them were having a picnic. They had all sorts of yummy foodstuffs and were all enjoying themselves. “Oh, could you pass me some potatoes?” the little teddy asked Owl, who was sitting across from her. “Of course!” Owl replied, smiling, “here you go!” Owl passed a big bowl of potatoes to the little Teddy. She took a few and ate them up. Then, after a moment, she took the rest and ate them too. She giggled as she passed the empty bowl back to Owl.

The five friends enjoyed their food and, when it was all finished, they cleaned up everything and began to walk to Zombie Jem’s cemetery. “That sure was a nice picnic” Jem said cheerily, “So much great food!” The little teddy rubbed her tummy and smiled. “Oh yes,” she agreed, “so many potatoes!” She was about to say something else when a voice sounded from behind them. “Would you like to go on an adventure?” the voice said. Everyone turned around to see who was talking.

Standing behind them was Teddy Tedaloo. The bear was standing there, holding a copy of his newspaper, The Teddy Tedaloo Times. The little teddy noticed that the paper was opened and he seemed to be reading from it. “What’s this about adventure?” Zombie Jem asked, curious. Teddy Tedaloo looked up from his paper and smiled. “Oh, that,” he answered slyly, “I know where you can find a giant.” Hearing this, the little teddy grew quite excited. “Ooh! I’ve never met a giant!” she said excitedly. “Well then,” the bear replied, “follow me.”

The group followed Teddy Tedaloo through the forest. He led them to an area that none of them had ever been to. “Maybe this isn’t the best idea,” Owl said nervously to everyone else. The little teddy shook her head. “We have to go,” she insisted, “it’ll be so fun!” She remembered fondly Teddy Tedaloo leading her to the fairy teddies. “I think she’s right,” Mickey agreed, “this will be lots of fun! Owl soon found that their excitement was contagious. Soon he was just as eager to see this giant as they were. Beary too was looking forward to seeing the giant. “Oh let’s huwwy up,” she said to everyone, “we want to see the giant!” Teddy Tedaloo laughed. He began to walk a little faster, much to everyone’s delight.

After a while of walking, they came upon a large cave. The little teddy noticed it was much like the one where the fairy teddies had been. “I assure you, it’s different,” Teddy Tedaloo said, seeming to read her mind. The little teddy clapped her paws together. “Ok,” she said eagerly, “let’s go!” She began to head into the cave when Zombie Jem grabbed her paw. “Hold on now, PammyBear,” he told his friend, “It may be exciting and fun, but we must still be careful!” Mickey nodded. “He’s right, Pammy,” he agreed, “we should walk in threes as we head it. Just to be safe.”

Everyone agreed that he was right. Mickey and Zombie Jem walked on either side of the little teddy and Teddy Tedaloo and Owl walked with Beary. The moment they entered the cave, they could feel the temperature drop. “Everyone, do huddle a little closer together to stay warm,” Teddy Tedaloo instructed everyone. They did as he said and continued into the cave. It was a dark cave, so they had to walk slowly. “I do wish we had brought a flashlight,” Mickey said as they made their way through the cave. “Well, we didn’t know we’d be going through a cave,” Zombie Jem answered him. The little teddy laughed. “But is’s jus so exciting,” she said.

They walked a bit further into the cave before they noticed a light at the back of the cave. “OOOH!” the little teddy exclaimed, “That mus be where the giant is!” As soon as she said spoke, a large growl came from the back of the cave. Followed shortly by another. A shadow suddenly appeared on the back wall of the cave. It was a massive shadow that seemed to show not one, but two giants. Another growl sounded through the cave. The shadows now appeared to move.

Everyone began to get nervous. Teddy Tedaloo had said there was only one giant. Now it seemed there were actually two. Were they friendly giants? Maybe they were mean giants who ate teddies for dinner. Maybe it was one giant, but with two heads. These thoughts and concerns along with others raced through the heads of the adventurers. But the little teddy wasn’t going to let fear and concern beat her. “I’m going to meet the giants,” she said bravely, “I’m not afwaid!”

The little teddy walked toward the back of the cave, moving slower the closer she got. Everyone slowly followed her, still afraid of what might come to meet them from the back of the cave. As the Teddy neared the furthest part of the cave, another loud growl rang through the cave. The shadows began to move, seeming to lumber towards the group of explorers.

The little teddy backed up slowly as the shadows came closer. Then suddenly, the shadows began to shrink. And the two giants finally emerged from the back of the cave. Hobbling towards them came two completely normal sized teddies. They looked nearly identical, with one being about half the size of the other. Both teddies were smiling. When they reached the group the littler of the two spoke.

“Hello,” he said happily. He seemed to be a little sleepy. “I is Little Dee and he is Dee.” The other teddy smiled and waved. “We’z cave bears!” Dee told them cheerily. The little teddy giggled. “Oh, we thought you were giants,” she told them. Little Dee and Dee both laughed. “Oh no,” Dee giggled, “Just cave bears. We not giants.” Beary stepped closer to the two and put out her paw. “I’m Beary,” she told the two, “I’m happy to meet you.” Little Dee walked up and gave her a hug. “Oh, hello,” he said, “is nice to meets you too!”

The adventurer went around introducing themselves to the two cave bears. The two turned out to be quite the opposite of scary giants. They discovered that the growling they had heard earlier was actually the sounds of Dee and Little Dee yawning. “The cave just makes it sounds much louder!” Dee giggled. Little Dee began sniffing the air. “Oh, does you has foods?” he asked, “I is starving and I finks I smells foods.” The little teddy and her friends all laughed. “Oh yes,” Zombie Jem said, “We just had a picnic earlier and we have some leftovers!” Little Dee jumped for joy. “Oh!” he exclaimed, “We has never hads picnic before!” Dee nodded. “Its true! Can we has picnic?” he asked.

The adventurers led their new friends outside where they set up a new picnic. They gathered up the food they had leftover and gave it to the cave bears. “Oh thank yous!” Little Dee said excitedly, “So much foods is all very good!” Owl and Beary were sharing some candy and fruit they had brought. “Do you like the candy?” Beary asked Dee as he munched on a bit of everything. “Oh yes!” Dee answered merrily, “Is all so goods!” Owl giggled as he watched the two cave bears. “You two mus be weally hungry,” he laughed. “Cave bears eat lots of foods,” Little Dee told him, “Wees very hungwy all the time!”

The little teddy was having so much fun with her new friends. She went over to Zombie Jem and whispered something in his ear. Her undead friend eyed her curiously. “Are you sure, PammyBear?” he asked her. The little teddy smiled and nodded. “Ok,” he told her happily. He reached into the bag he’d brought his own picnic supplies in. He pulled out a smaller bag and handed it to the little teddy. She walked back over to the two cave bears. “These are for you,” she said smiling, “the fwom my vewy speshul cowwection.”

Out of the little bag, she pulled out two potatoes. She gave one to each bear. They both took a potato. “Whas this?” Little Dee asked. The little teddy giggled. “It’s a potato, siwwy,” she explained, “I wove potatoes! They’re jus so nummy!!” Mickey laughed. “She really loves potatoes,” he told the bear, “and she only shares them if she really likes you!” Little Dee and Dee smiled. They each took a bite of their potato. “OH!” Dee exclaimed, “Potatoes is very yummy!” Little Dee bounced happily. “Oh yes,” he agreed, “Is super yums!” The little teddy was very happy they enjoyed her potatoes.

After spending a while with the two cave bears, it was time for everyone to head home. “It was vewy nice to meet you bof,” the little teddy told her new friends. Both Dee and Little Dee smiled. “We hads fun at picnics!” Little Dee told her. “Oh yes! So much fun and yum foods!” Dee added. The new friends all embraced and said goodbye. “Make sures yoo visits us!” Dee told them all as he and Little Dee headed back into their cave. “Oh we certainly shall!” Mickey answered. The adventurers began their walk back home.

It was a few minutes before anyone realized that Teddy Tedaloo had disappeared. “Where did that silly bear go?” Zombie Jem asked to no one in particular. “Tha’s a good question,” the little teddy said. They looked around for a minute before deciding to just keep on their way. But, to their surprise, Teddy Tedaloo was waiting at Zombie Jem’s cemetery. “Where’d you disappear to?” Mickey asked the bear. “Oh, I had some stuff to take care of,” came the sly answer, “and now I must be going. I shall see you all later!” The little teddy waved as he left. “Bye bye Teddy Tedawoo,” she called to him. “That’s Tedaloo,” he called back, “and I shall see you later!”

The adventurers split up at Zombie Jem’s cemetery. Mickey decided to stay with Jem so they could hold another Jam session. The little teddy, Owl, and Beary hugged and headed home. “They were vewy nice cave bears,” the little teddy said to her siblings. “Yea, I can’t wait to see them again,” Owl replied. Beary nodded. As they headed home, they three of them talked about all the fun adventures they were sure to have with their new friends.

Little Teddy and the Thunderstorm

Teddy 39

Oh, hello, everyone! I have another story for you today. It was inspired by my little sister, Teddy’s experience with a thunderstorm last night. I won’t say more; we’ll just get right to the story. I now present to you Little Teddy and the Thunderstorm. I do hope you enjoy!

 

Little Teddy and the Thunderstorm

The little teddy was on her way to Zombie Jem’s. She was going to hang out with him and Mickey. She was excited for today because Mickey and Jem had decided to play some music together. Mickey was going to bring his personal guitar and keyboard for Jem to play. The little teddy couldn’t wait to hear them perform together. She was trying to get there as quickly as she could because she was so eager to see them play together.

She was walking along through the woods, singing to herself when she felt a rain drop. She looked up and, sure enough, it had started to rain. It wasn’t coming down too heavily, so the little teddy wasn’t too worried. She didn’t mind the rain. So she kept walking, singing to herself. She was so focused on getting to see her friends that she didn’t notice how dark it was getting.

She was about half way there when she first noticed it. A slow rumbling in the sky. The little teddy suddenly noticed how dark it had gotten. Another rumbling in the sky, this time much louder. The little teddy shivered. She didn’t like thunderstorms. She began to pick up her pace, trying to reach her destination as quickly as possible. But before she could get very far, a large bolt of lightning burst through the ever darkening sky, followed by a very loud thunder clap.

The little teddy was getting frightened. She had always been afraid of thunder, but she had never been caught outside in a storm. And the rain was now beginning to come down harder and harder. Another loud crack of thunder caused the scared little teddy to jump. “Eeeee!,” she screamed. She began quickly searching for a place to hide from the storm. She knew she was still a ways away from reaching Zombie Jem’s cemetery so she hoped to find somewhere to wait out the storm.

But, search as she did, the little teddy could find nowhere to hide. She realized that her safest bet was to try and hide under a tree. But, much to her dismay, none of the trees around were that big. When another large thunder clap shook the very ground, the little teddy decided to just make a run for the cemetery. She took off, running as fast as her little legs would carry her. Suddenly the loudest thunder clap she had ever heard rang through the sky.

The little teddy, shaken from the thunder, slipped and fell on the muddy ground. She struggled to get her footing and then ran to closest tree. Another loud crack of thunder sounded as she reached the tree. The little teddy huddled as close to the tree as she could and curled up into a ball. It had gotten really dark and she wasn’t quite sure if she was going the right way. The little teddy began to cry. She was frightened by the storm and felt all alone.

The little teddy was beginning to think she would have to spend the night alone and scared in the middle of a terrible thunderstorm when she heard a voice in the distance. She wasn’t able to make out the voices, but she tried her best to focus on them. It was hard to do while the constant thunder kept scaring her. Finally she was able to make out something. “PammyBear?” she heard a voice calling. “Pammy?” another voice called. The little teddy stood up. It had to be Zombie Jem and Mickey. Shivering, she focused on where she heard the voices coming from. “Hewwo?” she yelled out as loud as she could. When she got no reply, she began to cry again. She worried that her friends had given up the search.

Suddenly the little teddy heard the voice again, this time much closer. “PammyBear?” she could clearly make out Zombie Jem’s voice this time. “I’m here,” she cried out, “I’m over here!” To the little teddy’s relief, Zombie Jem and Mickey came running up to her. Her two friends both hugged her. “I’m so sorry it took so long for us to get here,” Zombie Jem apologized, “as soon as it started storming, we got worried.” Mickey nodded. “We waited just a few moments,” he told her, “and then when you didn’t show up, we came out to find you.”

Zombie Jem and Mickey got the little teddy back to the cemetery as quickly as they could. “There’s a large shed in the very back in of the cemetery,” Jem explained to her once they got there, “that’s where we’re headed.” Once they got her inside, Zombie Jem went to get a blanket. Mickey hugged his friend. “Oh no,” he said worriedly, “you’re shivering. Don’t worry, Jem will be back with a blanket soon.” The little teddy curled up against her friend, trying to get a little warmer. “It was so scawy,” she said, “I’m so scawed of thunderstorms.” Mickey rubbed the little teddies back. “It’s ok,” he assured her, “you’re here with us now.”

It was just a couple of minutes before Zombie Jem returned. He had a large blanket with him. “That’s a big blanket for one small teddy,” Mickey told him. His undead friend smiled. “Oh it’s not just for her,” he laughed, “it’s for us all!” He handed the blanket to Mickey, who wrapped it around himself and the little teddy. “I’ve made us all some hot chocolate,” he told Mickey, before walking away, “and I wanna get the computer so we can show PammyBear that recording.”

Upon hearing this, the little teddy perked up some. She sat up. “What wecording,” she asked. Mickey smiled. “Oh yeah!,” he answered, “Before we came out to get you, we had recording a jam session. We think it sounds pretty good!” Zombie Jem walked back over and handed a mug of cocoa to his friends. He set down his laptop in front of them and sat down, wrapping the blanket around himself. He started up the laptop and pulled up the recording. “Get ready to enjoy the musical stylings of Mickey and the Undead,” Jem said proudly. The little teddy began to forget about her ordeal in the storm as she and her friends spent the night listening to music.

Hello, everyone! Thank you for joining me for another story. I think you’ll all enjoy my newest one! Please leave your thoughts on it in the comments below. Thank you! And now, without further ado, here’s The Little Teddy Meets a Rock Star.

 

The Little Teddy Meets a Rock Star

The little teddy was hanging out in Zombie Jem in his cemetery. With her was her brothers Owl and Fox. It was getting late and they had all been hanging out most of the day. And though it was getting late, none of them were ready to call it a night. “I think we should go out somewhere tonight,” Jem told his friends. The little teddy began bouncing excitedly. “Oh!” she replied, excitedly, “Yike where?” Zombie Jem shrugged. “I’m not sure,” he answered, “but I definitely wanna do something tonight.” The four friends began walking towards the cemetery’s exit.

The moment they closed the cemetery gate behind them, they heard a voice seemingly coming from the cemetery itself. “I think I can help you out,” the voice said. They all looked back into the cemetery, but saw nobody. Then, they saw someone walking up the side of the cemetery. They walked around to meet whoever it was that felt they needed help. The little teddy was surprised to see that she actually knew who it was.

“Teddy Tedawoo?” she asked as they met up with the bear. “That’s Teddy Tedaloo, thank you,” the bear replied, “and I think I have something fun for you all to do tonight!” Everyone’s eyes lit up. “Ooh!” the little teddy exclaimed, “yike what?” Teddy Tedaloo smiled. “Well, there’s a small concert being held in the forest,” he explained, “and I happen to have the last five tickets.” Zombie Jem eyed the bear suspiciously. “Now when you say small,” he started, “how small are we talking?” The bear shrugged. “It’s a private show,” he answered, “for five guests.”

Zombie Jem was a little uncertain of Teddy Tedaloo’s offer. “I don’t know,” he said, “it’s a little weird that you happen to have five tickets to a private show for five guests.” The little teddy grabbed Jem’s hand and began bouncing excitedly. “Oh pwease,” she asked, “can we go?” Jem saw that Fox and Owl were bouncing excitedly with their sister. He rolled his eyes and smiled. “Oh, ok,” he sighed, “it would be pretty cool to see a concert.” Teddy Tedaloo clapped his paws. “Well,” he began, “that’s settled! Now, if you’ll please follow me, we can make our way to the concert.” The group began following the bear into the forest.

The walk to the concert site was a very pleasant one. Teddy Tedaloo told them a little bit about the artist they were going to see. His name was Mickey and he had a band called Mickey and the Kilbears. They were an indie rock band that had only been performing for a short while. “But they’re very good,” he assured everyone, “I think you’re in for a real treat.” The little teddy was getting more and more excited as they walked. “I can’t wait!” she said happily. “Oh yeah,” Owl agreed, “this is going to be so fun!” In no time they had arrived to their destination.

A large stage was set up in a large clearing in the forest. Speakers lined the sides of the stage, and in the middle of the stage was the band setup. The little teddy could tell the band was a five piece, with three guitarists, a keyboardist, and a drummer. “Well the band uses some good equipment,” he explained to everyone, “so that’s a good sign.” Teddy Tedaloo motioned to a row of five seats in front of the stage. “Everyone, please be seated,” he instructed, “the show is about to begin.” Excited, everyone sat down. Many colored lights flooded the stage. They show was about to start, and the little teddy was getting more and more excited.

A small bear walked up on stage, followed by four more who each took their place at their respective instruments. The first bear went up to a microphone in the front center of the stage. “Thank you all for coming tonight,” he said, a little nervously, “I’m Mickey and we are Mickey and the Kilbears!” The little teddy began clapping. Everyone else joined in shortly after. Upon hearing the applause, Mickey smiled brightly. “We hope you enjoy the show!” he said excitedly before going to get his own guitar.

The moment they began playing, the little teddy knew that this was probably the greatest band ever. She was enthralled by the way the band played and by the way Mickey sang. She looked over to everyone and saw that they were all having a good time to. Owl and Fox were both dancing with the music. Zombie Jem leaned in close to the little teddy. “Are you having fun, PammyBear,” he asked her. The little teddy nodded happily. “Oh yes,” she answered, “this is so fun! I wove this band!” Jem nodded and the two focused their attention back to the band.

The show lasted about an hour and a half. As soon as they finished their last song, Mickey walked back up to the front and center mic. “Thank you all so much again for coming to the show tonight,” he began, with much more confidence than when he’d first spoken, “Did you all enjoy yourselves?” Everyone stood up, clapping and cheering. Mickey beamed. “I’m so glad you had fun everyone!” he said happily, “Now, my band mates aren’t really ones for socializing, but I’ll be hanging around for a while. But please, would you please give it up for my band mates before they leave?” Everyone stood up again and applauded Mickey’s band mates as they stood up and headed off stage.

A few minutes later, Mickey came from backstage to meet everyone. He smiled as he walked up. “I’m sorry for the wait,” he told them apologetically, “I had to catch up with the rest of the band. I keep trying to get them to be more social but, so far, I’ve had no luck with that.” Teddy Tedaloo shook his head. “Oh, it’s no problem at all,” he told Mickey, “We understand completely. Right everyone?” Everyone nodded agreement. Zombie Jem approached Mickey and extended his hand. Mickey took it with a smile. “Man, that was some good music,” Jem told him, “I used to be a musician myself when I was alive.” Mickey nodded. “That’s really cool,” he replied, “We’re still pretty new, but we’ve gotten some really positive feedback so far.”

Zombie Jem and Mickey talked for a while about their music. The little teddy waited anxiously with her brothers. They were discussing the show when Mickey and Jem came over to them. “Sorry for taking so long,” Mickey said, “I get distracted easily when discussing music.” Zombie Jem nodded. “I’m sorry, everyone,” he added, “I didn’t mean to keep him for so long. I don’t often get to reminisce about my music days.” The little teddy laughed. “Oh, tha’s ok,” she told her friend, “We’ve been having fun talking about the concert. It was jus so fun!” Owl and Fox both nodded. “We both had a wot of fun!” Fox told Mickey happily. “Oh yes,” Owl agreed, “Your band is vewy good!” Mickey smiled brightly. “Thank you so much!” he told them, “I really appreciate it!”

The little teddy spent the next few minutes getting to know Mickey. She really liked Mickey. He told her that he was a pretty shy bear, but playing in a band was helping him become a little less so. “Well, I would never guess you were a shy bear,” the little teddy told him, “You seem pwetty confident.” Mickey giggled. “Well, I’m really working on it,” he told her. The little teddy smiled. “Well, you’re doing a weawwy good job!” she assured him. “I don’t mean to interrupt,” Jem said suddenly, “but how would you feel about coming back to my place to hang out for a little bit? If you have the time, that is.” The teddy began bouncing excitedly. “Oh yes,” she exclaimed, “that would be so fun!” Mickey’s eyes lit up. “Oh! That would be great,” he answered, “I can’t believe how nice you all are!”

Soon, Mickey was walking back with everyone to Zombie Jem’s cemetery. He was so happy to have made so many friends at his show. When they reached the cemetery he couldn’t help but be impressed. “Wow,” he told Zombie Jem, “this place is huge!” Jem smiled proundly. “Oh yes,” he replied, “I quite like it!” Teddy Tedaloo clapped his paws together. “Well,” he told everyone, “this is where I take my leave. Got a paper to write!” He smiled and headed off. “Bye Teddy Tedawoo,” the little teddy called to him as he walked away, “See you water!” The bear turned around quickly. “That’s Teddy TedaLOO,” he called back, “and yes, you certainly shall see me later!” He continued off back to his newstand.

The little teddy spent the rest of the night hanging out with Mickey and Zombie Jem in the cemetery. Fox and Owl had decided to head home a little after Teddy Tedaloo had left. Teddy and Jem both found that they really enjoyed Mickey’s company. And to their delight, he felt the same. “I do hope you’ll come by often!” Jem told Mickey happily. Mickey nodded. “I definitely will,” he answered, “you’re all very nice and I’m glad to have met you all.” The little teddy gave her new friend a big hug. She was glad to have met such a nice bear. The new friends spent a while talking before the little teddy decided to head home. On her way, she thought about the fun everyone would have adventuring with their new friend. Her rock ‘n’ roll bear.
