Big Girl

by Miss Sherry

Emily's chore today was to take water to her father in the field where he was cutting hay. The temperature was over 100 degrees and there was no shade where the harvester roared like a bull.

Grandma took half a dozen Mason Jars, filled them with chopped ice from the barrel in the root cellar. She put them in Emily's wagon, packed in old quilts.

Six- year-old Emily was proud. She was a big girl.

Swifty Malone's Ford came racing down the road. Water flew. Emily flew. Her father would be thirsty.

She would never be a big girl now.
