Stacey's Problem

My rollerblades were way in the back. As I pulled them free of the other stuff, I heard Dad and Samantha talking softly in the living room.

Why were they being so quiet, as if they didn't want me to hear what they were saying? I strained to listen, but I couldn't make out the words.

"I'm ready!" I called, heading out of my room. Dad took the blades Samantha had given him for his birthday from the box under the couch, and we all headed out for Central Park.

We had a great time, skating along the park paths, though it might have been better if we hadn't had to keep slowing down for Dad to catch up. He's not too swift on his wheels yet. (Despite Samantha's warning, we did wait for him.)

Dad said we were going out to dinner later, so we just caught a quick snack from a vendor. I love the potato knishes they sell. Dad and Samantha ate hot dogs with sauerkraut while the three of us sat together on a bench beside a path.

Dad suddenly turned to Samantha. "I hope you don't mind, but I just can't wait until dinner tonight to tell her," he said.

"All right," Samantha agreed happily. "Tell her now."

"Tell me what?" I asked.

Part of me already knew what he was going to say.
