From Sargent Sam.

She sat on the door step every day
watching people pass by ,they would always somehow notice her
It must have been her black curly hair and her natural tanned skin
The passersby would smile or say hi she was only seven years old ,but she had that deep look in her eyes that say she understands the world
One day she was sitting at the same place when a old man walked by with a dog the old man looked very smart with his hat that was from the 30s .
It was a great day it was a Sunday
The sun was shining there was no cloud to be seen it was a grate day for a picnic so her father decided that there was going to be a outing
She helped her mother pack the food and went to the park.
As she was playing with other children she saw a familiar face!
It was the smart old man and his dog , she jumped off the swing ran to the old man with her big smile on her face she didn't have a care in the world that her two front teeth where missing and said : Hi good morning ,and pat the Jack Russells head the dog seemed very happy to see her, he jumped up and started to lick her face.
The little girl sat beside listening to stories told by him her big black eyes sparkling when he got to a interesting part,it was time to go home, she thanked him and skipped on her way back .
The days went by the same way,
One day she didn't see the old narrator
She missed the stories that he told her on the step that they used to sit on after that day in the park.
Her mother saw how sad she had became,The next day A young Lady
Rang the door bell her father opened the door and she was holding a doggie .Rose came running down the stairs nearly falling down, she saw the dog she looked behind the lady hopping her old friend would be just hiding , but no he wasn't. The lady said : It was his last wish that you keep Mr. pach. Rose stood in silence wondering what she meant? She didn't know anything about death,it was the first time , the lady handed over Mr.Pach to rose with a envelope it was a letter from her old friend.
