HURRY HURRY !

Henry bolted out the door and sped past Pete on the way out.
"Hurry, Hurry," Henry cried out. "What is the rush?" Pete asked.
"There is a special event," Henry said, "I am eager to see it."
"What is this special event?" Pete asked. "Is it a Christmas sale?"
"No," Henry replied. "It is not a Christmas sale."
"Tell me," Pete pleaded. "What is it?"
"No time to say, no time to delay," Henry said. "Come follow me."
Henry ran across the street with Pete right behind him.
They zipped past Buddy along the way.
"What is the big rush?" Buddy asked.
"Henry is off to see a special event," Pete replied.
"I'm following him to find out what it is."
"Could it be the big Christmas parade tonight?" Buddy asked.
"No, no," Henry said. "it is not a Christmas parade."
"Then, what is it?" Buddy asked again.
"No time to say, no time to delay," Henry said, "Come follow me."
Henry continued to race down the street followed by Pete and Buddy.
They ran past Cathy along the way.
'Where are you going?" Cathy asked.
"Henry is off to see a special event," Buddy replied.
"We're coming along to find out what it is."
"Can it be the Christmas Carol tonight?" Cathy asked.
"No, no, no," Henry cried out. "It's not a Christmas Carol."
"Tell us what it is," Cathy replied.
"No time to say, no time to delay," Henry said. "Come follow me."
Henry continued to scramble down the street
followed by Pete, Buddy and Cathy.
They scurried past Wally along the way.
"What is the hurry?" Wally asked his friends.
'Henry is off to see a special event," Cathy replied.
"We are following him to find out what it is."
"Are you going to the Christmas pageant?" Wally asked.
"No, no, no, no," Henry cried out. 'It's not a Christmas pageant."
"Then, what is it?" Wally pleaded.
"No time to say, no time to delay," Henry said. "Come follow me."
Henry continued to race down the street with 
Pete, Buddy, Cathy and Wally following him.
They zipped past Miranda along the way.
"What is going on?" Miranda asked.
"Henry is off to see a special event," Wally replied.
"We're going to see what it is."
"Can it be tonight's festival of lights?" Miranda asked.
"NO, no, no no, no," Henry cried out.
"It 's not the festival of lights."
"What is it?" Miranda pleaded.
"No time to say, no time to delay," Henry replied. "Come follow me."
Henry continued to dart through the neighborhood 
with Pete, Buddy, Cathy, Wally and Miranda following him.
They ran past Erica along the way.
"What is the rush?" Erica asked.
"Henry is off to see a special event," Miranda replied.
"We're coming along to see what it is."
"Are you going to see Santa at the mall?" Erica asked.
"No, no, no, no, no no," Henry cried out. "It is not Santa."
"Then tell us what it is," Erica replied.
"No time to say, no time to delay," Henry said. "Come follow me."
Pete, Buddy, Cathy, Wally, Miranda and Erica 
followed Henry to a huge display.
They stood in front of a brightly lit Nativity scene.
"This is the reason we celebrate this season," Henry proclaimed.
