1 "Dad, can we stop at the grocery store on the way home?" asked Betty. "I want to make something for Valentine's Day."
2 "I guess we can do that," said Dad. He glanced over at Betty before turning his eyes back to the road. "Is this for someone special? Someone I should know about?"
3 "He is special," said Betty, "but not the way you mean. He's a really good friend."
4 Dad nodded but didn't say anything else. He knew he'd find out more when Betty felt like talking.
5 Dad went with Betty into the store. He thought she wanted to buy Valentine cards. Instead she headed for the baking aisle. There she chose a package of red velvet cake mix and two cans of vanilla frosting.
6 As they headed for the checkout, Dad asked, "Do you have all the other ingredients and things you need?"
7 "Oh," said Betty, "I have everything but the cupcake baking cups. I checked this morning before school."
8 The two turned back, found what they needed, and then checked out. Betty was quiet as they drove home. She had a busy evening ahead if she was going to get everything done.
