Florrie watched him as he put the finishing touches to the cake. He was calling something out to her, and even though she couldn’t quite hear him, she recognised kindness in his voice. It was the flame that surprised her! She became quite frightened when she saw the lighted match in his hand, but after she saw him blow it out, she relaxed again. Although he had his back to her, she guessed that he was smiling as he stood, hands on hips, admiring his handiwork. She watched him as, with great care, he picked up the cake, then turned and walked towards her. Why was he singing ‘Happy Birthday’? It wasn’t her birthday! Still singing, he put the cake down in front of her and as she looked at the flickering flames on the candles, Florrie squealed.
