fRet-a Fret Story (smiles strictly prohibited)

Long long Ago, there was a man named Fret, his wife was Anxiety and he has two kids Fear and Worry. They all were living unhappily in their filthy cottage named Agonized Palace. There were not many houses around their palace, so they used to feel so lonely.

One day they decided that they will visit some of the homes in the town and will arrange a get-together. Fret told his family that they need to be not friendly with others there. He named a few Calm, Happy and Comfort, and strictly instructed, kids to stay away from them or they will lose their character.

A very gloomy party was going on (smiles were prohibited), Anger, Frustration, and Stress were also there and playing some really bad terrible music, and all were bothering-ly enjoying, the favorite beats of anger.

They noticed that Happy, Comfort were entering hand in hand with Calm. And everyone’s surprise Love and Joy with them.

Fear and Worry, as usual, got worried and fearful. As per the instruction by father Fret, they had to stay away from Happy, Calm and Comfort. Confusion was on these two Love and Joy. They whispered to each other ‘Can we mingle with Love and Joy?‘. They decided to play with Love and Joy, but not with Happy, Calm or Comfort. This way they are not disobeying father Fret.

Fret was busy with Stress, he missed to notice his kids.

The kids mingled with new friends, and soon enough Happy and Comfort joined them. Fret’s kids were feeling strange, something was disappearing from them, what was that. Worry was not worried and thought to rename as Not Worry, and suggested a name to brother Fear, FearLess.

Happy took the guitar from Anger and played happy feet music, soon everyone was dancing. Even Fret and Anxiety could dangerously smile and went back to their Palace. They decided they will never come to this town again.

Calm was sitting peacefully in a corner, watching all this, thought to join, Fret family kids as they were already friends with Joy, Love, and Comfort!

Now Fret and Anxiety live together, away from Harmonious Town, named by Love, Joy Fearless, and NotWorry.

It is a very serious story, please don’t dare to smile.
