Get ready for story #2:
A Change in Freezeville
“Welcome to Freezeville!” Orange boomed in his loud, cheery voice. “I’m Orange, the town sheriff. What is your name?”
The newcomer glanced around hesitantly. “I…. My name is Tomato. You can call me Tom for short.”
“Well, Tom,” Apple waddled over and extended a shiny red hand. “Where are you from?”
Tom looked down at his shoes. “Dave’s Grocery.”
Cucumber nodded and sadly patted Tom’s hunched shoulder. “Me too,” he whispered.
You see, Dave’s Grocery is an old corner store. It’s dirty and dull, but it’s the cheapest store in human town. It’s hard to explain, but for a member of the FoodFam to be brought there from the farm is mortifying. It’s not the ideal place to be.
“Well, well, well,” Lettuce sneered, patting her fresh green leaves. “I come from Mark’s Market. In case you don’t know, it’s the nicest place in town. Shiny floors, wooden baskets, perfect temperatures. It’s the best place to be, and only special FoodFam members are sent there. It’s an honor every child wants,” she finished off proudly.
Tom glanced down at a tiny blemish on his smooth red skin. He quietly walked away and sat down in a corner with his head in his hands.
A few months later….
It was midday and Freezeville was just waking up, when they realized something was wrong.
“It feels a little hot in here,” Pepper said, fanning herself with her hands.
“Yeah, I think I’m starting to melt,” Cheese moaned. “This is really bad.”
“I don’t think you noticed, but it’s pitch black in here,” Lemon pointed out.
“I wonder what happened,” Lettuce asked, trying to keep her leaves from wilting.
“I know what happened,” Tom said quietly.
To be continued…
Hope you enjoyed it so far!
