“Delphine always wanted to pilot her father’s plane and when he forgot his keys on her tenth birthday, she knew that taking off would be easy.”
Now all she had to do was get to the hanger without anyone stopping or following her. Her party was set to start two hours; dad was off to pick her cake from grandmas, mum and aunt Ruby were in the kitchen making party packs. Bruno barked, Delphine smiled.
“Mum, can Bruno have some water?”
“Sure love, careful not to spill it on your outfit,”
“Someone’s being very helpful and grown up today,” Aunt Ruby chirped in.
Delphine smiled if only she knew. Bowl of water delivered, she skipped happily to the hanger. Door opened – check, pilot seated -check, key in the ignition – check, this was going to be the ride of her life.
“Going somewhere young lady?”
Delphine jumped, “Why do you always show up when I don’t want you to?” she asked angrily.
“Cos daddy’s are guardian angels we learn to love when we become adults,”
