A/N: Double drabble.
Meriel had loved her first day at school. There was so much to do, and lots of other kids to play with. Not only that, but because she already knew her ABC, her numbers up to fifty, and could read a whole book by herself, sounding out the words like her Taddy had taught her, Mrs Evans said Meriel could be her special helper!
It made her feel ever so important, helping the boy sitting next to her tie his shoelace when it came undone, and tying another girl’s hair back so it wouldn’t get dirty when they did painting. She had so much fun she almost didn’t want to go home at the end of the day, but everyone else was going and being at school all by herself would be lonely. Anyway, she wanted to tell her special friend everything she’d done.
Taddy came to pick her up in the red car, and drove her home, where Daddy was waiting.
“There’s my big girl! Did you have fun?”
“Yep!” Meriel ran right past him without stopping, throwing her arms around Nosy and giving her friend a big squeeze. “I love school, but I wish Nosy could come too.”
