Little Albert is a young boy.
He has a friend, Robert.
Robert is a white and fluffy bunny.
His eyes red and beautiful like flame,
his fur white and fluffy like snow,
his hugging soft and warm like bed.
Little Albert and Robert are very good friends,
everyday they play together,
they eat together,
and they sleep together.
However there is a bad guy,
his name is Dr. Watson.
Dr. Watson is a terrible person,
and he is very mean to kids.
He told his friends,
“Let me catch 12 kids, I can make them into anything”.
One day, Dr. Watson went to the garden,
and little Albert was playing with Robert in the garden.
Dr. Watson looked at little Albert and thought,
“Look at this boy and his bunny friend, they look so happy, I will make him afraid of this bunny”
Dr. Watson made a trap,
and little Albert was unfortunately trapped.
Robert was worried and tried to help out.
But, whenever Robert approached little Albert,
Dr. Watson makes a scary sound.
The sound was so scary,
that Robert was frightened away,
and little Albert bursted into tears.
This happened over and over,
and little Albert was afraid of Robert.
Whenever Robert approaches,
little Albert screams and bursts into tears,
even though Dr. Waston had already left.
Robert tried again to help little Albert,
but little Albert screamed,
“Go away, please go away, I am afraid of you”.
Robert felt very upset, but he still wanted to help little Albert.
so Robert went to the neighbourhood,
sneaked into the kitchen,
and in the corner of the kitchen,
he found Jerry, a fluffy rat.
“Jerry, can you help little Albert, he is afraid of me”.
Jerry agreed happily.
So Jerry went to garden and tried to help little Albert,
but little Albert was still screaming,
“Go away, please go away, you are fluffy, I am afraid of you”.
Jerry felt upset as well.
So Robert and Jerry went to the ceiling
and found Tom, a white cat.
“Tom, can you help little Albert, he is afraid of me”.
Tom agreed happily.
So Tom went to garden and tried to help little Albert,
but little Albert cried again,
“Go away, please go away, you are white, I am afraid of you”.
Robert realised that, little Albert is not only afraid of him,
he is afraid of everything similar to him,
but Robert has a new idea.
Robert went to the living room,
and in the armchair he found old Tony, a hound dog.
“Sure, let me help you”, old Tony was happy to help.
Old Tony went to the garden,
and approached little Albert.
“Don’t be afraid, I will help you”, old Tony said with his calm voice.
“I am not afraid of you, you are neither white nor fluffy”, little Albert did not cry this time.
Old Tony helped little Albert out of the trap,
“Now you are all good, go play with your friends, little Albert”,
“No, they are too scary”, little Albert is terrified.
“They are not scary, little Albert, they are your friends, they love you”, old Tony said, looking at Robert, Jerry and Tom,
“Dr. Watson is gone, we will protect you”.
Little Albert listenned to old Tony’s words,
and overcame his fear,
he is not afraid of his friends anymore.
