Khalisa played with the toys with Millie, Looked at the books with Millie, And even played on the musical instruments with Millie.

When all the children lined up in twos to go out Khalisa was right next to Millie. A girl came up to Millie and asked,

“Can I be your partner?�


into the assembly hall,

Millie didn’t know what to say.

“My name is Khalisa,” said the girl “Is it?” said Millie in shock “Mmhmm”, the girl nodded “My name is Millie Mills” Millie said with a big grin on her face.

Millie Mills didn’t have a dog, she didn’t have a cat, or a brother, or a sister, But Khalisa was much better.
