Last week, Matty learned that the king’s challenge wasn’t as easy as he thought it would be. This week’s six takes place a few months later. Matty is stumped. While sitting outside, enjoying the sun, a pair of gardeners catch his attention by dropping their tools out of their truck.
They’re girls, about his age, and he thinks the blonde is really pretty. It’s been a while since he played in the dirt, so, he approaches them.
“Can I help with the trees?”
The gardeners looked at him before shifting their eyes to each other.
“Don’t know,” the blonde said, smiling brightly. “Will it take me longer to explain than dig the holes myself?”
Grinning, Matty rolled his eyes and held out his hand for the shovel. “Where would you like them?”
