Lily and Daniela have headed outside to go skating on the pond at the park.
“Whoa!” Lily said as she stepped on the ice. “Be careful, Daniela. It’s been a while since we’ve been skating. We’ve got to get our balance.”
“It’s fine, Lily,” Daniela replied. “We’ve got this.”
Daniela skated out onto the ice. She glided along the smooth surface, weaving her skates in and out as she went along.
“This is so much fun!” she said cheerfully.
“I love this pond!” Lily said as she skated by. “It’s so great to skate on–”
“Lily!” Daniela called as she fell on the ice.
“I’m coming!” Lily called to her friend as she quickly skated across the pond to help Daniela. “Are you okay?”
“Yeah, I’m okay,” she replied. “I just need a hand up.”
“Do you need any ice?” Lily asked. “We have plenty of it here.”
Daniela laughed at the joke.
“Thanks, Lily,” Daniela said as her friend skated over.
Lily held out her hand and Daniela reached for it. “No problem. I’m glad you’re okay.”
“Not exactly the graceful skater I was hoping to be,” Daniela said as she got to her feet.
Never one to give up, Daniela continued skating that afternoon with Lily.
“See, Daniela? You’ve got it now.”
“This is so much fun. We should go skating again some time.”
Daniela didn’t give up on skating after she fell down. She got up and started skating again.
