Jackie the Angel
Once upon a time lived a new angel. She had just gotten her wings and wanted to take them out for a spin. Jacqueline was so proud to have earned her wings and especially couldn't wait to fly and have fun with them. So, off she flew through blue skies. "This is great," she exclaimed with much excitement as she stretched her wings and flapped them up and down cruising through cloudless skies with wonderment and awe.

Jacqueline looked below and saw a teenage woman driving a speed boat through the ocean waters. "Wow! That looks like fun!" thought Jacqueline. So, she lowered herself into the boat knowing that the driver of the boat was too busy navigating to see the angel.

But something went wrong. The boat tipped over and the teenager and Jacqueline went splashing hard into the sea. "Sharks!" thought Jacqueline. Before the teenage girl could even notice Jacqueline, she had righted the boat and sped away leaving Jacqueline to flap her wet wings desperately. She couldn't get them high enough to dry them! Jacqueline was in a pickle. And this pickle was a giant ocean!

Just then, Doowee Dolphin, swam up and announced himself. "Hi! I'm Doowee Dolphin, the fastest swimmer in the sea. Hang onto me." So Jacqueline did just that. Doowee swam Jacqueline into shore and said, "I have to go now. My band, the Dowettes has a doo-wop music concert tonight and we have to practice. I do hope you'll be all right. Just hang tight."

Jacqueline thanked Doowee for the ride. "Thank you, Doowee Dolphin. You saved my afterlife." She climbed onto the sandy shore and waved good-bye with her wet wings which still needed drying off. "Oh, my," she lamented, "If I stay here, I'll surely get sand in my wings!" So, Jacqueline dragged her wet wings along the beach until she found a patch of peaceful looking green grass.

Jacqueline sat down in the warm sun to dry her wings. At last, they were dry and she was ready to fly. But, when she went to move, she was stuck! Unfortunately, she had sat her left wing on some chewing gum and it had stuck her to the ground! She cried out to a nearby bird. "Mr. Seagull. Please come help me. My wing is stuck with chewing gum."

"But if I help you," protested the seagull, "Then my beak will be stuck and I won't be able to eat or sing or anything!"

Jacqueline reassured him. "If you unstick me with your beak, I'll take off the gum and we can fly together!"

The seagull had never flown with an angel before so he helped her with the chewing gum and got it all off her wings with his beak. When he went to tell her he was finished, he couldn't talk because his beak was all full of gum! Jacqueline took it off with her graceful fingers and asked his name. "Jasper" he answered with a beak that would now open and close nicely.

Jacqueline smiled her sweetest angelic smile and headed off into the sky with her new friend, Jasper. But not before she flew far and wide to find Doowee Dolphin. She found him sipping a smelt smoothie from a coconut shell at his band's concert rehearsal. She flapped her wings as she flew past. He waved good-bye with his dorsal fin and Jasper and Jacqueline flew off.

Angels are wonderful friends to have and sometimes they need our friendship as much as we need theirs!
