Finish the story begins with:

“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.”

Delphine tiptoed inside the house to get the key. She knew that she was breaching Dad’s rule. She ran to the flagstone path leading to the hangar and put the key to the ignition socket. But the engine was sluggish to respond this morning and wouldn’t work. Then she saw Dad’s message: “Nice try, Delphine, but wait till you’re 18 to pilot this plane!” Sicken by the frustration emanating from this, she ran some cold water over a wad of paper towels and lay buried in her room for hours on end. Until Dad came home and they flew around.

    Father’s always know best, and they certainly know youth! My dad was always a jump ahead of me and I think that was because he had tried it all himself. 🙂 Loved your story LadyLee. Be well… ^..^

    Poor Delphine, if she’s smart she’ll convince him when she’s 16. Loved it!

    Clever father. He seems to know his daughter very well. Good for him, the way he keeps her safe but encourages her at the same time.
