Missing Dad
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Ben and Darcy's father had been gone a long time. It seemed like forever. They knew that Sunday would be Father's Day. They also knew that they would not see their father that day.
 
2     "It is not fair," Ben said as they watched cartoons.
 
3     "I know," Darcy said. "I miss Dad, too. I wish we could see him on Father's Day."
 
4     Other families would be grilling hot dogs and steaks. Other children would spend the day playing with their fathers. There would be hugs and kisses and smiles for other children from their dads, but not for Darcy and Ben.
 
5     "If you could have either Dad or a hundred dollars, which would you choose?" Darcy asked.
 
6     "Dad," Ben said.
 
7     "What if the choice was between Dad and a new bike?" Darcy asked.
 
8     "I would pick Dad," Ben said.
