The Special Tree

The tree stood in front of a vacant block at the end of the street. It had thick, leafy branches and was easy to climb. It was Matty's special place. And then, one day, he saw a sign on it. Matty couldn't read the big words and went to find his sister. Jess was a school captain, so she'd know what the sign said.

The Special Tree is a short story from the Tall And True writers' website, written and narrated by Robert Fairhead.
