She's Not Old!

By Beth Beutler
1     Eli snickered. "Look at that old woman," he laughed. "She can hardly walk!"
 
2     Maria looked at him in shock. "Eli, that's mean!"
 
3     "No, she's mean. Do you ever see her watching us out of her window? She gives me the creeps."
 
4     "Eli!" Maria retorted. "Sometimes I don't know why I hang around with you."
 
5     "Maybe because you are my sister!" Eli stuck out his tongue and ran past the elderly woman's house. He felt like sticking his tongue out at her. He wished she wouldn't watch him all the time. When he rode his bike, she watched. When he roller-skated, she watched. When he walked the dog, she watched.
 
6     "Eli. Maria." The kids heard their grandmother calling. "Time to come in for supper!"
 
7     Eli and Maria's parents both worked the afternoon shift at the machine shop. Grandmother Helen would come over in the evenings and heat up dinner for the children. She would stay until their parents came home around 8:00 p.m., just before the children had to go to bed.
 
8     "Hi, Grandma!" the kids called.
 
9     Grandma put a wrinkled hand on each of their shoulders. She smelled like cinnamon. "Have you been baking again, Grandma?" Maria asked.
 
10     "Just some snickerdoodle cookies," Grandma said with a twinkle in her eye. "They are someone's favorite, right?"
 
11     "You bet!" said Eli as he grabbed one off the plate.
 
12     "Only one before dinner!" Grandma called after him as he ran up the stairs.
 
13     Maria stayed in the kitchen. "Grandma," she asked, "how old is old?"
