Little Boy: We had better not stray too far, sunshine. (Peddling quickly on his long-handle bared red Schwinn)
Little Girl: Life’s an adventure. You can’t be livin’ if you’re always being cautious! (Peddling faster, slightly ahead of the little boy)
Little Boy: I’m not being cautious, just obedient. I don’t want too worry my parents. (Slowing his speed to an even cruise)
Little Girl: (Looking back, still peddling)
Little Boy: (Stopping, looking back towards the home where he lives) I’m not going to ride too far, mom. (He shouts, smiling and waiving).
Little Girl: She watches over you like the blaring sun.
(Scoffing, slowing up her speed)
Little Boy: No, (he turns around and starts peddling back towards his mother who is now standing in the street), she watches over me like the angel she is.
Little Girl: (Sighs softly)
Little Boy: (Stopping, he turns around to see where his friend is)
Little Girl: I wish I had an angel.
Little Boy: (He looks towards the house she lives in and sees her father standing out in the yard. He grins.) You still have one angel.
Little Girl: Dads can be angels too?
Little Boy: (Smiling) Of course they can!
Little Girl: (She lets out a joyous shriek). He’s my angel!
Little Boy: Aren’t we lucky? (He exclaims, as he resumes his peddling back towards the house) Race you!
Little Girl: Hey, you got a head start! (she says, doubling her peddling speed, trying to catch up to the little boy).
They reach their destinations.
Little Boy: See you tomorrow, sunshine! (He says, throwing a triumphant wave).
Little Girl: See ya tomorrow, my second angel.
Moral: Having only one parent doesn’t mean you’re aren’t loved fully. The parent who transitioned on still lives in your heart.
