The children were playing in the woods behind their homes when they came across something strange. It was a body, lying face down in the dirt.
The children were scared. They had never seen anything like it before. They didn’t know what to do.
One of the children, a boy named Billy, had an idea. “We should go get help,” he said.
The other children agreed. They ran back to their homes and told their parents what they had found.
The parents called the police, who came and took the body away. The children were never told who the body was or how they had died.
The children were shaken by what they had seen, but they were also relieved that they had done the right thing by getting help. They knew that if they hadn’t, the body might have been there for a long time, and the person who had died might never have been found.
The children learned a valuable lesson that day. They learned that it’s important to speak up if you see something that doesn’t seem right. They also learned that it’s important to work together as a team. If it hadn’t been for Billy’s idea, the other children might have been too scared to do anything.
The children continued to play in the woods, but they were always careful to stay away from the spot where they had found the body. They knew that it was a place of sadness and death, and they didn’t want to go back there.
One day, the children were playing in the woods when they heard a noise. They looked up and saw a police officer walking towards them.
The police officer smiled at the children. “I’m glad to see you,” he said. “I wanted to thank you for what you did. Your help was very important.”
The children smiled back. They were proud of themselves for doing the right thing. They knew that they had made a difference.
The police officer continued. “The person who died was a homeless man,” he said. “He had been living in the woods for a long time. He died of natural causes.”
The children were relieved to hear that the man had not been murdered. They were also sad to hear that he had been homeless. They knew that it must have been a difficult life.
The police officer finished talking. “Thank you again for your help,” he said. “You’re good kids.”
The children waved goodbye to the police officer as he walked away. They were glad that they had been able to help. They knew that they had made a difference in the world.
