“Wait, where did Brody go?” The girls glanced up and down the streets. The bright sun reflecting off the leftover snow blinded their eyes.
“Ahh, leave it to Brody to disappear,” Max said. The girls and Aspen turned around and walked back down the street. As they approached the Outback General Store, Brody appeared outside with something new.
“Oh. My. Gosh. Brody. What did you buy?” Max asked.
“It’s a boomerang.” He held his new purchase above his head, smiling like a Cheshire cat. The girls gathered around him to get a close look at the brown wooden weapon. “It was hand-carved into a wide V-shape then carefully sanded along the grain of the wood until it was shiny and smooth.” Brody held it out so the girls could feel the silky exterior.
“Wow, Brody, what made you buy that?” Emma asked.
“I know, right. It’s so cool.” Brody smiled as he pointed out the carved details on the boomerang.
“It is pretty,” Max said. “But why would you buy that when you don’t know how to throw it?”
“The guy in the store told me that all you have to do is aim at something, throw it and it should whip around your target and come right back to you,” Brody said.
