MELTED VALENTINE'S DAY CHOCOLATE
written by Debbie Williamson
"Hi Fawn!" exclaimed Jenny Hansen, seeing her best friend out in the field.
"Hi Jenny!" exclaimed Fawn, holding a parcel behind his back.
"What have you got?" asked Jenny.
"I don't have anything," said Fawn.
"Yes you do," said Jenny. "What is behind your back?"
"This is a present for Spot," said Fawn.
"What did you get her?" asked Jenny.
"Valentine's Day chocolates," said Fawn.
"Spot will love that," said Jenny.
"Gee," said Fawn, wiping a bead of sweat from his forehead. "It sure is warm here today."
"Yes," said Jenny. "It is. I guess we aren't used to 30 degree Celsius weather in February."
"Maybe," said Fawn. "I mean back in Ontario we used to get minus 30 degree Celsius weather."
"Yes," said Jenny. "You'd better get those chocolates inside and out of the heat or they are going to melt."
"Oh my!" exclaimed Fawn. "I hope they haven't melted already."
"There is only one way to find out," said Jenny, taking the package from Fawn and opening up the heart-shaped package.
"They are ruined!" cried Fawn, when he saw the puddle of melted chocolate sitting in the box.
"What is ruined?" asked Spot, who was just coming up the driveway to where Jenny and Fawn were standing.
"Oh here!" exclaimed Fawn, taking the box out of Jenny's hand and handing it to Spot. "Happy Valentine's Day!"
"Oh Fawn!" exclaimed Spot, happily. "Thank you so much!"
"But they are ruined," said Fawn. "They are completely melted."
"That is okay," said Spot. "I know you meant well and I do appreciate the gesture very much. However, I am a cow and you know I can't eat chocolate anyway."
"Oh," said Fawn, with a sly smile forming on his face. "I almost forgot about that."
Fawn took the box from Spot and stuck his paw in the chocolately mess and started licking it.
"Well," said Fawn. "Happy Valentine's Day, Spot."
