“Oh no. I lost it. It’s gone forever.” Ellie said.
She tried to wipe the tears from her eyes but she was crying to hard. The tears just kept coming back.
Jack wrapped his arms around her.
“Th-thank you, Jack.”
Jack ran out of the room and found Sam. He grabbed Sam’s hand and pulled.
“Hi, Jack. Where are you taking me?”
“Dooo.” Jack said.
“I wish I spoke baby” Sam thought.
Jack didn’t let go until they were in front of Ellie.
“What’s wrong?” Sam asked, sitting down next to her.
“I-I lost it. “
“What did you loose?”
“My favorite sticker.”
“What does it look like?”
“It‘s a sparkly, purple star.”
“How big is it?” Sam asked.
He hoped it was really big. Little things were always so hard to find.
“Its smaller than my pinky nail.”
Ellie held up her little finger for Sam to see.
Sam sighed. It wasn’t just small, it was teeny tiny.
“I think I will need to be Super Sam to find something so small.” He said. “I’ll be right back.”
He would have to be fast. This was an emergency.
Super Sam walked into Ellie’s room.
“I heard you lost a sticker.” He said.
“Yes. My very favorite one.”
Super Sam pulled out a flashlight.
“No sticker will remain lost on my watch. I will look under every single thing in this room if I have to. Let’s start with under the bed.”
He slithered under the bed, shining his flashlight into every corner.
All he found was seven dirty socks.
He looked under the bookcase.
Jack threw all the blocks into the toy basket.
The sticker was still missing.
“Well, Ellie, at least your room will be clean.” Sam said as he put away some dress up clothes.
“My poor sticker is lonely. It misses me.”
Ellie jumped onto her bed and hid under her quilt.
Only her feet stuck out.
Jack walked up to her and peeled something off of one of her big toes.
“Stop, Jack. That tickles. “She said.
“Let me see that.” Sam said.
Jack held out his hand.
“You found it! Yay Jack!”
Ellie popped out of bed.
“My sticker?” She asked. “Did he find my sticker?”
“Yes. He did. I looked under everything in your room except for one thing.” Sam said. "You!"
He handed her the sticker.
“Please, please, please put this in a safe place.”
“Of course I will.” Ellie said. “I never ever want to lose it again.”
