You Like Him Best!, Part 3
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     "Dear Diary," Kathy wrote, "You won't believe what happened today!
 
2     I can't believe myself and I already knew Dad and Mom like Billy better than me. Dad took Billy to the Surf Shop. He bought a boogie board for him. Life just isn't fair. That old Billy gets everything he wants. I'll bet they won't buy anything for me. I don't care, though. I don't want to go to the beach anyway. They can just like Billy best. I'll show them. I have to go on this stupid vacation, but I don't have to have a good time. I'll just stay in the motel room and sleep or something. Maybe I will get sick. That would serve them right! If they really loved me, they would take me back to the amusement park. Later."
 
3     Kathy closed her diary and locked it. Nobody was going to look at her diary. Not if she could help it!
 
4     "Kathy," her mother called from the living room. "Kathy, come in the living room. I have something to show you."
 
5     Kathy thought about pretending that she didn't hear her mother. She really wanted everyone to know how unhappy she was, but she knew it was a bad idea to ignore her father or mother.
 
6     "Yes, Mom," she sighed. "I'll be there in a minute."
 
7     Kathy looked at herself in the mirror. She made a face and stuck out her tongue. Now, there! That's what she wanted to do, but she knew that would be a mistake, too. Finally she dragged herself into the living room.
 
8     Kathy's mother was reading the newspaper.
 
9     "What did you want to show me that is so important?" Kathy asked.
