Ben and the Butterfly Girls

Once there was a boy named Ben, who loved to play in the garden when, two girls fluttered by with wings so bright, it was love at first sight.

Brown hair, blue eyes, happy and kind in a sunny garden, watching two colorful butterfly girls fly by.

One was named Lily, the other Rose, with giggles and twirls, they struck a pose. Ben's heart beat fast, oh what a flutter, but soon he faced a big dilemma stunner.

Brown hair, blue eyes, happy and kind in the garden, looking at Yellow wings, pink dress, with a playful smile and Green wings, purple dress, with a twirling dance who are laughing and twirling around.

He couldn't choose between the two, his feelings tangled in a goo. Should he tell the truth, or keep it in? Honesty's hard but surely not a sin.

Brown hair, blue eyes, happy and kind sitting on a grassy area, face in his hands, looking worried.

He talked to his mom, who hugged him tight, 'Be honest, my dear, and things will be right. Tell the truth and be sincere, that's the way to show you care.'

Brown hair, blue eyes, happy and kind's mom hugging him, giving him advice.

Ben took a breath and spoke his mind, 'I like you both, it's hard to find, who I like more, but I want you to know, honesty's important and I had to show.'

Brown hair, blue eyes, happy and kind looking at Yellow wings, pink dress, with a playful smile and Green wings, purple dress, with a twirling dance, feeling nervous but determined to speak.

The girls smiled and gave Ben a hug, 'We like you too, don't be a bug. We can all play and have such fun, honesty and friendship, we've already won.'

Brown hair, blue eyes, happy and kind, Yellow wings, pink dress, with a playful smile, and Green wings, purple dress, with a twirling dance hugging in the garden, happy and smiling.

So, the three played games and sang a song, honesty and love all along. Ben learned it's okay to share your heart, and friendship blooms when you do your part.

Brown hair, blue eyes, happy and kind, Yellow wings, pink dress, with a playful smile, and Green wings, purple dress, with a twirling dance playing together, laughing and having fun.
