In some places in the world, Lewis would be called a "Firefly." Would Lewis be called a "Lightning Bug" or a "Firefly" where you live? Lewis liked to be called a "Lightning Bug," but he is a nice bug and he wouldn't mind at all if you called him a "Firefly."
One day just as it was getting dark, Johnny was playing in the yard when he saw Lewis light up. He was so bright! Johnny went over to Lewis and saw the sad look on his face. "Why are you so sad?" Johnny asked Lewis. "No one likes me because I am so bright," Lewis said. "Well, I like you because you are so bright and different!" said Johnny.
Now Lewis and Johnny became good friends that day. They played and played until Johnny had to go into the house and get ready for bed. So Lewis flew up to Johnny's bedroom window to stay there for the night and be close to his new friend. He saw Johnny go to bed and told him goodnight. Then Lewis went to sleep. But something woke him up! It was Johnny crying because he was afraid to go to sleep. He just knew that there was something under his bed!
Lewis tapped on the window. Johnny came over to the window and let Lewis in. "What is wrong, Johnny?" Lewis asked. "Every night when I try to go to sleep, I hear noises under my bed and I am scared!" Johnny said. "Let me take a look," Lewis said. He flew under the bed and turned on his lightning bug light and showed Johnny that there was nothing under the bed. That light really lit up the bedroom!
"I'll tell you what," Lewis said. "I'll sleep under here tonight and every time you think you hear a noise, just poke me and I will light up and you can see for yourself that there is nothing under the bed." "Will you, please?" Johnny asked Lewis. "If you do that, I will be able to sleep all night!"
So Lewis and Johnny went to
sleep, and you know what? They both slept all night! They were
both happy, and they couldn't wait until the next day so they
could play with their new best friend!
