Once upon a time there was a little boy named John who lived in a small rural town. He was an only child, but he rarely felt lonely because he made friends with everyone he met.
One day, his parents were hosting a big family gathering and asked him to help them set up for the event. He was so excited to be part of the celebration that he quickly got to work. He had just finished setting the table when he noticed something strange in the corner of the room.
It was a strange, small creature that had red eyes and looked like some kind of a rodent. John was scared at first but soon realized the creature was harmless. John realized it must have been a pet that someone had abandoned and decided to take it home.
He named the creature “Inobtrusive” and took it with him everywhere. He quickly grew to love Inobtrusive and together they would explore the woods near his house, search for treasures, and take long walks.
As John and Inobtrusive slowly became best friends, John learned an important lesson about friendship: it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, friendship is about understanding, acceptance, and tolerance. He learned that true friendship is often found in the most unlikely of places.
John and Inobtrusive remained friends for many years and even when John grew up and moved away, he would often come back to visit his old friend.
The moral of the story is that friendship is rarely found in expected places and true friendship is based on understanding, acceptance, and tolerance. We must seek out and embrace those that are different from us in order to form meaningful connections and relationships.
