"Marisa come on dear girl! We need to do laps!" "Coming Dad!" Marisa calls. She pulls on her teal one piece. When she goes down her Dad is by her side beaming. "You look great my girl, remind me what boy you´re dating?" "Daaaad you know I don´t date!" He smiles. "Yes and why not?" "Because well I´m only 12 and because you´re the only guy I love, besides other family members!" She recited as she always had when he asked, which was a lot. They walk outdoors and her Dad immediately goes into coach mode. "Okay M do your stretches, remember to ALWAYS stretch!" "Yes coach!" She said gleefully. He handed her a water bottle. "Stay hydrated! Okay are you done with stretches?" She nodded and took a swig of water. She jumped in and did her first lap freestyle. "Good, okay do that again but MUCH faster please!" He then pulls out a stopwatch to time her. When she stops he smiles. " Good much better than yesterday. Do you want to try backstroke, butterfly or anything else?" "No thanks!" She says shaking her wet hair all over him. They walk back into the house together.
As soon as they get inside the house a wonderful smell wafts over to them. "Mmmmm your Mom made pancakes!" Her Dad says ruling his stomach. She giggles. "Duh Dad! Don´t eat all of them before I get down!" She says still giddy. She takes a shower and does all the things a person does in the morning. Then she sneaks to her parents room and sprays some cotton candy perfume on her wrists. When she gets down her Mom instantly pulls her into a hug. "Great job this morning dearie!" Then she sniffs the air and grabs Marisa´s wrist. "M are you serious?" She gives Marisa a stern look but kisses her head. "Sit down my darlings, you are now served Ma´s famous pancakes!" They all laugh.
Marisa goes to school and has an awfully great day. When she gets home from the bus stop her Moms eyes are puffy and red. "Honey, theres been an accident, your father is dead!" Marisa´s whole world stops. "What?" Marisa says in shock.
