Time is the owl who lives in a tree. Time’s friend Eye-lo wanders under his tree. Eye-lo is a another owl who wears a red shirt. The sun bounces off Eye-lo’s feathers.
Time’s dad flies to the branch and perches next to Time. Time says to Eye-lo, “Do you want to see my Dad’s sword? When I grow up I want to be a knight like my Dad. My Dad is here.”
“Hello, kid. Did you see my sword?”
“It’s here in your tree trunk,” says Time.
“Oh I forgot to tell you that you have to take my place in the play because I am tired.”
Time says, “I am going to dress up like a clown.”
The play is starting. The bad owl is ready to fight. Clown says the war is starting. Time’s hands move his father’s sword. He points it at Eye-lo’s heart but he doesn’t want to hurt his friend. He only wants to show how strong he is. Eye-lo and Time do not finish the play. They leave the theater and the audience thinks it’s part of the play. Eye-lo and Time do not return. Instead they go to get pizza.
Time’s dad flies to the pizza place and eats pizza too. “How was the play?” he says.
Eye-lo tells him they didn’t finish it.
“That’s ok. It’s smart not to fight.”
