About a red cardinal that doesn't like eating worms.

         Red the red cardinal doesn't like eating worms. He'd rather eat other bugs or seeds. Sometimes he even eats at cherries at an orchard.

"I don't eat earthworms! I'd rather starve!" said Red to himself.

"That's good for me then!" said an Earthworm passing him by.

"Hello, I'm Red." said Red.

"Hello, I'm Earthy," said the Earthworm.

"Nice to meet you Earthy," said Red.

         Red and Earthy played together and became friends. Another red cardinal’s been watching this. He looks confused.

"Hey! What are you doing with that worm!" shouts another red cardinal.

"I'm friends with him!" shouted Red back.

"Friends? Are you joking? That's food!" said the other red cardinal.

"Well he's my friend and no I'm not joking," said Red.

"How can you be friends with our food?" said the other red cardinal.

"He's fun to talk to and play with," said Red.

         After this, Red introduced himself to the other red cardinal. Red then showed the other red cardinal how fun it is to play with Earthy. The other red cardinal agreed with Red that he's fun to talk to and play with. But this still didn't convince him.

"I still think you should eat him!" said the other red cardinal.

"No I say! He's my friend!" said Red getting upset with the other red cardinal.

"Well, alright. That's your choice. I'm going to go now," said the other red cardinal.

"Ok," said Red disappointingly because he thought he could gain another friend from the other red cardinal.

         Not long after the other red cardinal left, he came back. Red was confused as to why he came back. Red wanted to see what he wanted.

"What do you want?" asked Red.

"I want to talk to and play with you and Earthy.

"What? I thought you said he was food!" asked Red curiously.

"I changed my mind. I had a great time with you two and I like both of you. My name's Guy by the way," said Guy.

"Well that's great! Yes you can talk and play with us," said Red happily.

         After this, Red, Earthy and Guy all talked and played and had a great time being together. Earthy showed Guy and Red how they could find grubs to eat too. This helped convince Guy to further not want to eat Earthy. They all lived happily ever after!
