'It's just that' I'm just worried that' well' what if the other mice don't like me''
Rosie's heart melted. 'Of course they'll like you Edie! You are a wonderfully clever, kind, caring mouse! Why on earth are you worried about that''
'I don't know. It's just, I've not tried making friends with other mice for such a long time ' not since the Rodent Rescue Home ' and I don't know if I'll be any good at it.' Edie's eyes sparkled with the beginning of tears, but she blinked them back with a twitch of her nose.
'Now, now sweetie, there's no need to cry!' Suddenly an idea struck. 'Hold on,' said Rosie, jumping up and leaving the room. After a few moments she returned with something shiny.
'This,' Rosie said holding it forward, 'is my lucky pin. It was the first pin that Elouise helped me to make, and whenever I've needed her love and help on a special day or a day when I'm a bit nervous like you are today, I've worn this pin and it's all been alright.'
Rosie attached the pin to Edie's bag and planted a kiss from her finger onto Edie's head. Edie smiled a thank you up at her mum.
'C'mon now you two, we'd better go or you'll be late!' and with a grin she ushered them out into the sunshine.
Edie and Ebony are starting school soon! Do you know someone starting college or University' This paw-made pin will remind your friends that they special to you and that you're thinking of them!
