He looked sadly atthe big bucket of paint and the brush with the longhandle. Then Tom had an idea. He smiled.He started to paint the fence again.Soon he saw one of his friends, Ben Rogers. Ben waswalking towards him. He was making strange noises.Ben was a steamboat on the Mississippi River!‘Ting-a-ling!’ he said. He was making the noise ofthe bell on the steamboat. ‘Sssh! Sssh!’ he said. He wasmaking the noise of the steam in the engine of thesteamboat.Ben was holding a big red apple.‘I’m going swimming,’ Ben said. ‘You have to work!’‘I’m not working,’ said Tom. ‘This isn’t work!’10

‘Do you like painting the fence?’ asked Ben. He wassurprised.‘Yes,’ said Tom.Tom started to paint again. Sometimes he stoppedand looked at the fence. Then he painted again. Therewas a happy smile on his face.Ben watched him. ‘Let me paint the fence,’ he said.‘No,’ said Tom. ‘It’s very difficult to paint a fence.’Ben was not happy. Tom liked painting the fence.So Ben wanted to paint the fence.‘Please let me paint it,’ he said. ‘I’ll give you some ofmy apple.’Tom thought for a minute. ‘No,’ he replied. And hesmiled and started to paint again.‘I’ll give you all of my apple,’ said Ben.Tom thought for another minute. ‘All right,’ hesaid.So Tom sat down and started to eat Ben’s apple.And Ben started to paint the fence.11
