Conditions of Use
One sunny afternoon, there was a couple named Hattie and Otto. They were traveling to Nebraska to start a new life. The trip took almost two months to get to Nebraska. They traveled on a wagon with the horses pulling them.
Then finally, they got to their land. Out of nowhere, one of the wagon wheels fell off! Hattie thought that they could not go anywhere anymore. Then Otto made a mud brick to hold up the wagon until they got a spare wheel.
The next day, while Otto was working outside, a spider bit him! Hattie was looking for a doctor. She finally found one, but it would cost a lot of money. Hattie had to spend all her money! Hattie then had no money and thought that they would lose the land. The neighbors were generous to let Hattie and Otto stay at their house for a while. Otto finally got better, but Hattie and Otto were still staying at their neighbor’s house. Hattie had to see if there was any money in the box.
Hattie was about to open the box, but something stopped her. The neighbors were very rich, so they gave Hattie and Otto some money. Hattie said that they did not need to, but the neighbors insisted. Hattie thought that giving them money was so thoughtful of the neighbors so Hattie and Otto went back to their land. They were very happy. Hattie decided that she wanted to see if some money was in that box.
So Hattie went to get the box out. When Hattie opened it, the box was empty! Hattie was so mad at her brother, Spencer! But she was also happy because it was also a box of memories!
When Hattie wrote a letter to Spencer, Hattie said she was a little mad, but then she was happy because the box was full of memories. Hattie also said that she might visit him. So, when Spencer got the letter, he was so surprised! He had not seen Hattie in almost a year! So when Hattie saw him on his 100th birthday, they were so happy! But Hattie had to go back home. She was sad, but she very happy too. Hattie was happy because she got to see Spencer! Hattie also kept the box in a special place. Her heart!
