If you believe you can achieve.

Timmy a ten-year old boy was riding his bike home from school, very angry and hurt. He and his friends had been bullied and taunted by the school's bully. Timmy is shy and somewhat of an introvert.He pretty much enjoys staying to himself, but he will always try and help a person if need be. Timmy finally arrived home and went straight to his bedroom. He laid in his his bed glaring at the ceiling, wondering where he was  going to find the courage to stand-up to the school's bully. Timmy decided to go outside and ride his bike and came upon an Ice cream truck, that was playing happy music. A little old man with white hair was driving this sparkling and shinny truck. Timmy was amazed at the truck and waved it down.Timmy asked the man if he had apple bubble gum. The man replied no but, I have some bubble gum that has magical powers. Timmy chuckled, as his eyes got as large as golf balls. He couldn't believe what the man had said.Timmy asked to see the bubble gum. The bubble gum was wrapped in this sparking shinny paper just like the truck.Timmy asked the man the price of the bubble gum and the man replied a dollar. Timmy gave the man a dollar and rode away. Timmy was so excited, he pulled over on the side walk to open the bubble gum and began to chew it. He immediately felt this invigorating charge and energy within. He felt as though the bubble gum really did have magical powers. Timmy was so happy, he clean his bedroom and did his homework when he got home.Timmy had convinced himself that the bubble gum had magical powers and he was going to have  the courage to stand up to the school's bully. The next day finally arrived, and it was recess . Just like clockwork the school's bully began to bully the children. The bully approached a boy named Kevin. He pushed Kevin and snatched his hat from his head. Kevin asked for his hat back and the bully laughed saying, the only way you will have a hat if you buy another one because this one is mine now. Timmy then stepped in and asked for Kevin's hat back. The bully told Timmy he better watch out before he will be crying next. Timmy stood face to face with the bully and out of nowhere Timmy punched the bully right in the nose. The bully grabbed his nose and began to cry. He asked Timmy, how did you get the nerve?
