As I look back on it now, I realize it was kind of silly of me to be so worried when Daddy was really just late. I 1 every night for Daddy whom I followed around everywhere.
That day, I stood at my 2 place by the door, awaiting his 3 from work.
After standing there for a while, I began to 4 where Daddy was. I ran into the kitchen and asked Mummy 5 ,“When is Daddy coming? ”
“Soon, honey,”Mummy replied distractedly (心不在焉的) because she was following a recipe for dinner.
I ran back to the 6 for I knew that Daddy was coming and that I wasn’t standing there for nothing. I began to recite the words.
Tired of that, I went back to the kitchen to ask Mummy again but before I could open my 7 , she handed me a My little Pony coloring book. She said: “I’m 8 , Daniel. Go and 9 a pretty picture and I’ll hang it on the fridge. ”
I went back, put my book and crayons (蜡笔) down, then went to get my mini-rocking chair to sit in. After a while, the 10 became a pink-and-purple artistic wonder.
Soon I smiled with 11 as I heard the sound of the garage door 12 and Daddy’s car driving in. I heard him turn off the engine and open and close his car door. The next thing I knew was that the door opened and 13 stood Daddy. I stood up and held my arms out. I 14 him tightly and whispered, “I love you”.
As I sit at the computer finishing this story, I know Daddy will be home soon. I still 15 when he’s late. I still go to greet him when he arrives. And I still tell him I love him.
