Setting: London, England, Early 2000
Once, there was a little pup named Bayley Adcock. He lived in a nice little neighborhood in London, in the Borough of Sutton. Now, today, February 3rd, was his 5th birthday. His parents got him a big cake, and plenty of gifts.
He got to opening the last gift. It was a brown teddy bear with a tan tummy, and a red bowtie. The bear was almost as tall as Bayley, only an inch shorter than him. This bear, which he named Olly, quickly became his favorite gift.
That night, at bedtime, Bayley was in bed, holding Olly close to him. He suddenly heard a voice. “Hi,” it said. Bayley was quite surprised to see that his teddy bear had come to life! “Whoa!” Bayley said in surprise, “You’re alive?” “I guess I am,” replied Olly. “Hey, can we be friends forever?” asked Bayley. “Okay, sure!” said Olly in response.
The next morning (Friday), Bayley had to get ready for school. He explained to Olly where he had to go, which made him kind of sad, but Bayley reassured him that he would be back this afternoon, which cheered him up.
Olly got rather bored waiting for Bayley to return. Later on in the day, Bayley’s mom decided to clean her son’s room. As he heard the door opening, he quickly slumped over and stopped moving, until she left. He seemed to do this out of instinct. Olly was very happy when Bayley returned. They proceeded to play for the rest of the day.
