There were two boys, Jack and Joey, and they had been great friends since Kindergarten. They were in the 8th grade now, and Jack saw Joey in the hall. Jack said he had something to show Joey, just real quick. Joey couldn't wait to find out what Jack thought was so interesting. Jack took Joey out of the school's front doors and out to the back of the school. It was just a couple of seconds when Joey saw it. There was a creek that looked so beautiful outside the school, it was almost impossible to get away.
Joey was trying to figure out what to do, what the right words to say were. He wasn't really thinking about Jack at that point, he just didn't want to get expelled. The principal got there, and that's when Joey realized that Jack was gone. "It wasn't me!", Joey cried. "My friend Jack said he had something to show me... and I followed him, but I didn't think we were going to come out of the building!" "Ok, I believe you", said the principal. The principal told Jack that the only punishment for this was a 5-day suspension. Joey received no punishment. At least now Joey knew who he could trust.
Moral= A true friend would never leave you when you need help the most
