Sheila Rae Wasn't Afraid Of Anything. She Wasn't Afraid Of The Dark. She Wasn't Afraid Of Thunder And Lightning. And She Wasn't Afraid Of The Big Black Dog At The End Of The Block.



At Dinner, Sheila Rae Made Believe That The Cherries In Her Fruit Cocktail Were The Eyes Of Dead Bears, And She Ate Five Of Them.



At School, Sheila Rae Giggled When The School Principal Walked By. And When Her Classmate Wendell Stole Her Jump Rope During Recess, Shelia Rae Tied Him Up Until The Bell Rang.



Sheila Rae Stepped On Every Crack In The Sidewalk Without Fear. When Her Sister, Louise, Said There Was A Monster In The Closet, Shelia Rae Attacked It. And She Rode Her Bicycle No-Handed With Her Eyes Closed.



One Day, Sheila Rae Decided To Walk Home From School A New Way. Louise Was Afraid To. "You're Too Brave For Me", Louise Said. "You're Always Such A Scaredy-Cat", Sheila Rae Called. "Am Not", Whispered Louise.



Sheila Rae Stepped On Every Crack. She Walked Backwards With Her Eyes Closed. She Growled At Stray Dogs And Bared Her Teeth At Stray Cats. And She Pretended That The Trees Were Evil Creatures. She Climbed Up Them And Broke Her Fingers Off. Snap, Snap, Snap.



It Suddenly Occurred To Sheila Rae That Nothing Looked Familiar. Shelia Rae Heard Frightening Noises. They Sounded Worse Like Thunder. She Thought Horrible Thoughts. They Were Worse Than Anything She Had Ever Imagined.



The Sounds Became More Frightening. The Thoughts Became More Horrible. Sheila Rae Sat Down On A Rock And Cried. "Help", She Sniffed. She Thought Of Her Mother And Her Father And Louise.



"Louise!" Sheila Rae Hugged Her Sister. "We're Lost", Shelia Rae Said. "No, We're Not", Said Louise.



Louise Stepped On Every Crack. She Walked Backwards With Her Eyes Closed. She Growled At Stray Dogs, And Bared Her Teeth At Stray Cats.



And She Pretended That The Trees Were Evil Creatures. She Jumped Up And Broke Their Fingers Off. Snap, Snap, Snap. Shelia Rae Walked Quietly Behind Her.



Soon Their House Could Seen Between The Trees. Sheila Rae Grabbed Louise And Dashed Down The Street. When They Reached Their Own Yard And The Gate Was Closed Behind Them, Shelia Rae Said, Louise, You Are Brave. You Are Fearless. "We Both Are", Said Louise.




And They Practiced Walking Backwards Into Their House With Their Eyes Closed.
