No April Fool

By Mary L. Bushong
1     Kendra sat on the end of Gran's bed in the guest room. She watched as her grandmother carefully took items from her suitcase and put them away. The beautiful silver-backed brush was laid on top of the dresser. Dresses were hung in the closet while shoes were placed in a short, neat row on the floor.
 
2     The girl liked to hear her grandma speak. Her Scottish accent was fun to listen to, and Gran loved to talk. Kendra almost forgot to listen to her words as she enjoyed the musical lilt of her voice. Then she realized that the older lady had asked her a question.
 
3     "I'm sorry, Gran, could you repeat the question? I was enjoying the sound of your voice," she said.
 
4     "That's nice to know," said Gran. "Do you know, or as we say, "ken", that in Scotland, children aren't allowed to use an accent when they speak until they are in school? Until then, they have to speak like American children."
 
5     Kendra's eyes grew round. "Really?" she asked.
 
6     Gran smiled. "No, of course not! April fool!"
 
7     Kendra laughed over half-believing such a silly story. "Do you know why they call April first April Fools' Day?" she asked.
 
8     Gran nodded, and then she pointed to the calendar hanging on the wall near the door. "Tell me what that is," she said.
