The Little Brown-Haired Pig-Tailed Girl
Charlie Brown had his little red-haired girl and Eddie had his little brown-haired pig-tailed girl.
They met almost every day on their walk home from school. They would walk and talk until they reached her house. Yet Eddie never asked her name.
He had become quite fond of her. Today he would ask her to be his Valentine and learn her name.
He walked up to her door with flowers and a heart shaped box full of candy in hand. He took a deep breath and pressed the doorbell. “Ding dang dong,” it chimed.
His heart pounded in his chest in sync with the footsteps that rapidly approached the door.
The door swung open to reveal the little brown-haired pig-tailed girl and her twin sister. Or vice versa.
Confused, he reached out with the candy and flowers and asked with a crack in his voice, “Will you be my Valentine?”
The girls smiled and responded in unison, “Yes!”
His eyes went wide and his jaw dropped.
The girls took the flowers and candy and giggled as they closed the door.
Eddie trudged home both happy and puzzled. He still didn’t know the little brown-haired pig-tailed girls name.
