The boy and the little girl were enjoying a pleasant afternoon playing outside the neighborhood together. The boy showed the girl his collection of beautiful, unique marbles. Next, the girl showed the boy a handful of candy she had just received on her birthday.
The boy suggested that they both change – he would give her all her marbles if she distributed all her sweets. The girl agreed, as she also found marbles that they were beautiful too.
The boy gave up all his marbles, but kept one – the best – in his pocket. The girl kept her promise and gave the boy all her sweets.
