Brothers, Timothy and William, had seen out their window their mother bury a box in the back yard last night. Now that she had gone to work on the other side of town, it was time for some digging. The ground was hard from last night’s deep freeze but they were both determined to see what was inside.
By the time they finally heard the shovel hit the metal box, their hands were both frozen and blistered. The cold wind stood still the moment they opened it. There lay two cupcakes with a note that said, “Happy Birthday, Boys”.
