SUMMARY: "Ginni? Can I ask you something?" "Okay." "Has anyone ever told you that you are pretty?"

Please R&R :) don't be too harsh! it's my first fanfic

p.s. also there is a sister fanfic to this. it is going to be called "The Question."


"Ginni?" 5 year old Virginia Sims, who was wearing a brown lace tshirt and white shorts, looked up from building her sand castle in the sand box at school. Bartie Stork, who was 5 years old, just like her, was standing in front of her. He had on a blue tshirt and blue jean shorts. He asked, "Can I ask you something?"

"Okay."

"Has anyone ever told you that you are pretty?"

Virginia blushed. "Well, my mom and dad and aunts and uncles do… why do you ask?"

Bartie frowned. "I think they need to get their eyes checked at the doctors."

Virginia felt tears well up in her eyes. Bartie didn't think she was pretty? She was seconds away from crying when he continued, "'Cuz I think the girl in front of me is beautiful."

The brown-haired girl looked up, astonished. She looked around her, making sure no one else that Bartie might've been talking to was there.

"Really?"

Bartie smiled at her. "Yup."
