Ella was hanging her freshly washed stuffed animals outside their apartment window when she spotted that cute boy living on the second floor playing on the ground below.

One of her stuffed animals fell off the line as if on cue.

The boy saw it, picked it up, and waved it in the air.

“Got it!” he yelled.

He then rushed upstairs to give it back to her.

“Hi, I’m Jimmy,” introducing himself. “Hi, I’m Ella,” she replied. “It’s nice to meet you.”

What do you know? It turned out to be the beginning of a new friendship for both.
