Chapter One:

Once upon a time in the small town of Pembine a little curly headed boy lived with his family. Samuel was a sweet 6 year old boy full of adventure and life. He loved hunting and killing bugs, building all sorts of weapons, and inventing new ways of making it essential to remodel his modest home.

On one especially warm fall day the flies decided to awaken in hopes of spring. The flies, seeking the warmth of the sun, were enjoying an afternoon sitting calmly on the Reese Families Large living room window.

Samuel was deeply concerned about the invasion of these pesky black flies on the exterior of his house. He was determined to make them pay for turning his beautify tan home into a sporadic polka dotted sight. Since Samuel's stature was slight he decided the only way to rid the house of these flies was to get his mothers kitchen broom and attack them with vehemence!!

He walked out of the kitchen and around to the window which was covered with flies, determined to kill as many as he could with each blow. He lifted the broom and took a powerful swing! CRASH! Samuel was not only successful in killing a few flies, he also single handedly broke the window into many large and small pieces. The look of absolute horror on his face..... PRICELESS!! The cost of the window.... we won't tell, we'll simply ad it to his "bill of release" which will be handed to him on his 18th birthday!

Great storytelling! Glad you have such a good sense of humor... or you would have killed them all by now! :-)
