word to which speak in anger.
When night is stolen on them, children lay in a bed with blankets strongly around their chins.
Shadows on edge of a ceiling force them to slide more deeply under coverings.
One of these small children - the boy who is the real little coward. Matte ten years and always
anxious by something. And tonight not any exception. For this reason its mother has left light on in
прихожей. To scare off strange noise.
But it not everything, that it is wrong with Matte. It also is very unfortunate. In the afternoon it
observes, that everyone passs by.
It notices, that adults bear their portfolios on their way to work. It even worries how difficultly they
It sees, that lady hold umbrellas in case the rain arrives in the afternoon. It thinks, hurricane or an
awful downpour could arrive.
Matte the worst always thinks. It even is late behind of other children on their way to school. Some
game the friend on the friend also teases friendly dodges and вскрик loud voices.
Not Matte. It has very few friends. Actually, if it should think very difficultly, that it possibly would

greater, but it also was afraid to try. It thought, whether there was it ever to a bat, it never would be

amazed a sphere, it also would not hasten to run all over again to be based. Or it could pass a sphere
when it has been thrown in it.
Matte so was afraid to do a mistake.
The grandfather knew it and wished to help Matte.
Matte observed, that some children played baseball in Victoria Park. Then the grandfather has
decided to make its appearance. It sat about Matte and told "Greetings". Matte almost weakened. It
was visiting of surprise.

The grandfather has asked Матта, that it wanted most of all and before the answer has arrived from
its lips, something mysterious happens. Матт felt so light, it wished to fly. There was a picture before
its eyes, then another both another. Images and sounds ran its opinion. Its whole body felt softened.
Its hands did not stir up more, and suddenly it felt belief to make something.
It could feel, that it dragged in its hand and has sent a shiver downwards its back ridge. It looked at
game of baseball and observed взволнованно as someone who resembled so directly amaze a
sphere and ran all over again to be based.
It observed other part of game in amazement as that same boy who was similar, that its twin has
made surprising things, remarkable things as, it was a pity to it, that it cannot make.
Matte suddenly wakened from its dream and looking downwards on its hand saw, that the
grandfather seized it firmly.
The grandfather has told to it something.
Матт knew, that it could make it if it wanted to. It could be that the same boy in dream.
But the grandfather has told, " It there was no dream. " Then it has reached its legs, and
accommodation of its hand on shoulder Матта has told, " To be happy, the grandson. Also continue
to do others happy. "
Since that moment on, Matte never was afraid again, and it really played to very following game of
baseball. And it was the same as the grandfather has told.
