Ben was reading his new comic book in his bedroom. It was a Marvel comic. He was so engrossed in the story that he did not notice his brother, Mark, coming into the room.
Without a word, Mark crept up to Ben and snatched the comic from him.
“Hey!” Ben shouted at his brother.
Mark stared at Ben. He had an impish grin on his face. Jumping off his seat, Ben leapt at Mark and tried to grab the comic from him. Mark backed away just in time. He jumped up and down and flung the comic about in the air. He taunted his brother and told him that he would only get it back if he said ‘please’. Ben was furious. He jumped as high as he could. He just managed to reach for the book. However, Mark was gripping it so tightly that when Ben snatched it, the book tore. Mark was shocked and he dropped the book immediately. Ben was so irritated that he ran after his brother shouting and hitting him with the comic.
Luckily their mother heard the commotion. She arrived in time to stop a fight from breaking out. She told Mark to apologize to Ben. She also ordered Mark to buy Ben another comic book with his pocket money.
