Grumpy Valentine

 Beaver was looking very grouchy.

Skunk came by, “Hey, grumpy face.”

Beaver scowled, “Hey, stinky face.”

Skunk raised his eyebrow, “What happened to you this morning?”

“I’m just practicing being a grump,” Beaver replied.

“Why would you do that?” Skunk ask.

“People will want to cheer me up and give me more Valentines,” Beaver said.

Skunk laughed and laughed and laughed. “That’s not how it works.”

Beaver’s eyes got big. “No?”

Skunk shook his head. “Nope. You give Valentines to people you like.”

Beaver smiled. “Then I better practice my smiley face.”

“Much better,” Skunk said. Then he took out a Valentine from his backpack and handed it to Beaver.

Beaver’s smile got bigger.

Just then Otter came by looking very annoyed…

    Such a cute story, Franziska! So believably kid-like the way Beaver got a misunderstood idea in his mind :) Luckily Skunk explained… and I love the circular nature of your story ending with Otter in the same predicament :) Thanks so much for joining in the Valentiny fun!
