As soon as Bernie the Brave finished brushing his teeth he went out into the living room and met up with Myron.

"Ok Myron. What is this plan?"

"Well Bernie the Brave, it goes a little something like this..."

As Bernie the Brave listened to Myron's plan his eyes grew wide. Then he started to grin and chuckle. By the time Myron was finished talking they were both rolling on the floor laughing and holding their stomachs.

*snort*"heee heee heee!....oh...Myron...that is the best plan ever! Let's get started right now, we don't have much time!"

"I will get started Bernie the Brave. You need to go to the store and stock up on tuna and Party Mix. Besides, you need to act surprised when stuff starts happening. I don't want your brothers to suspect a thing!"

************************************************* *********

Bernie the Brave returned an hour later with a couple of grocery bags and a former Giant.

"Tollis!!" Myron ran up to his friend, "What are you doing here?"

"I saw Bernie the Brave at the store and he told me what was going on. I want to help."

"That is great! We could use your assistance. Here is what I need you to do..."
Myron told Tollis the plan and by the time he finished, all three friends were laughing like loons.

"Oh Myron!" Tollis said as he wiped tears from his eyes, " ha ha ha! Oh! I don't know how you came up with this plan, but it is a doozy! Let's get started!"

*********************************************** *************
The three friends worked day and night until everything was done.

When the day of the brothers' arrival came they were ready and couldn't wait to put their plan into action!

"Ok Bernie the Brave, today is the day. Are you ready?"

"Yes Myron" Bernie the Brave rubbed his hands together and began to chuckle, "Yes, I am soooo ready!"

Myron entered the house and walked straight to Bernie the Brave's bedroom. The door was open and Myron saw his friend curled up on the bed, crying.

"Bernie the Brave what is wrong with you?" Myron sat on the edge of the bed and looked at his crying friend.

*sniff* "Myron, I don't want to talk about it." *weep*

Myron sighed. "Ok Bernie the Brave, I won't pressure you to tell me, but I think you should open this letter at least, it could be something important."

He held out the letter but Bernie the Brave just pushed it away.

*sob* "I can't read it...please!"

*sigh* Myron opened the envelope and pulled out a folded sheet of paper.
"It is a letter."

"Read it to me Myron...I don't have the strength..." Bernie the Brave threw an arm up and covered his eyes.

Myron rolled his eyes and shook his head. He didn't understand why his brave friend was acting!

He unfolded the sheet of paper and read it out loud:
"Bernie. Me, Rocky, Oliver and Spike are coming to visit you. We will be there on the 3rd of June. Make sure you have some tuna and some Party Mix treats for us to eat. Fred."

Myron finished reading and looked over at Bernie the Brave. "Well, it looks like your brothers-" he stopped talking when he realized that Bernie the Brave was no longer on the bed.

He heard a retching sound coming from the bathroom. He walked in and saw Bernie the Brave hugging the toilet bowl and vomiting.
When he finished, he slumped over and started crying again.

"Bernie the Brave!" Myron said in his sternest voice. "Enough! Now, I don't know what is going on, but this is ridiculous! I have seen you fight Witches! I have seen you dive off of cliffs! Heck, you even went up against a dragon for goodness sakes! Pull yourself together man!"

Bernie the Brave looked up at Myron. He had never heard him talk like that before and it surprised him. He began to feel ashamed.

"Myron, I am sorry. You are right, I am acting like a baby. It is just that...well...I was picked on by my brothers all the time. They are all so much bigger than me, even Rocky and he is younger than I am. I am scared of my brothers. I left home so I could make something of myself and not have to be compared to them. Now they will see that I have done nothing with my life...and they will never let me forget it!" Bernie the Brave looked at Myron with red-rimmed eyes. "Please Myron, will you help me face my brothers? I can't do it alone."

Myron grinned. He was starting to come up with a plan. "Bernie the Brave, I will help you face your brothers. In fact, I will help you show them how brave you are and together, we will bring them to their knees!! Muwhahahahahahahahahahahaha!" Myron laughed and rubbed his hands together.

This was going to be their biggest adventure yet!

Once upon a time, in the kingdom of Ohio, Bernie the Brave and Myron were sitting outside of Myron's cave and relaxing when they spied a messenger walking up the road toward them.
He stopped in front of Myron's mailbox and then looked at the letter he had in his hand. He nodded his head and smiled.

"Hello there!" he called out

"How ya doin'?" Bernie and Myron both spoke at the same time.

"I am looking for a Mr. Bernstein Thomas. I have a letter for him. I was told to deliver it here."

"Bernstein?!" Myron looked at Bernie the Brave and started laughing.

"Ahem." Bernie the Brave cleared his throat and blushed bright red. "That is me."
He held out his hand for the letter.

The messenger handed him a clipboard to sign and after Bernie the Brave signed it, he handed him an envelope.

"Thank you, have a nice day!" The messenger waved as he walked back to the road.

"Thanks!" Bernie the Brave waved back then looked at the letter in his hand. His face had gone from bright red to a light green color with in a matter of seconds.

"Bernie the Brave, what is it? Who is it from?" Myron asked his sickly looking friend.

Bernie the Brave swallowed hard *gulp*. He looked at Myron with horror in his eyes.

"It is from my brother, Fred."

"Bernie the Brave! I didn't know you had a brother!"

"I have four brothers Myron. I haven't seen them in years. I haven't wanted to see them! I don't care if I ever see them again!"

Bernie the Brave tossed the letter on the ground and ran inside.

Myron picked up the letter, sighed, and walked in after his friend. He had never seen Bernie the Brave so upset before. He had to find out what was going on.
