Pencil Drawing
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "I saw your painting in Mr. Hooper's store," Melody said to me as we got ready for our first class.
 
2     "You did? What did you think?"
 
3     "I think it is terrific," Melody said. "You are very talented."
 
4     "You are, too," I said, really meaning it. Melody's pencil drawings were very detailed.
 
5     "You really think so?"
 
6     "I sure do. What are you working on now?" Melody always seemed to have a project going.
 
7     "I'm drawing a picture of Comet, my cousin's horse," Melody said.
 
8     "Maybe Mr. Hooper would let you sell one of your drawings," I suggested.
 
9     Melody's eyes lit up. "Do you really think he would do that?"
 
10     "We could ask. Let's go after school."
 
11     I met Melody after school, and we headed to Hooper's General Store, where my mom worked part time. Mom was in the back when I got there, but Mrs. Hooper was in front.
 
12     "Hi, kids," Mrs. Hooper said with a genuine smile. She always made everyone feel so welcome.
 
13     "Hi, Mrs. Hooper. We have a question for you."
 
14     "Sure, what is it?"
