“Dad, Take a look at what I drew” Edwin said showing his Father the Dinosaur he drew.

“Edwin, can’t you see I’m busy? Go show your mother and don’t bother me again”
Mr. Samuel said as he went back to the files he was checking on his laptop.

“Okay” Edwin responded disappointed that his father had turned him away.

“Mum, take a look at what I drew” Edwin said as he walked into his mother’s room.

“Not now baby, mummy is busy” Mrs. Rose said fully engrossed with the paperwork in front of her.

“Okay” Edwin said as he walked dejectedly to the living room.

“What’s wrong Edwin? You don’t look happy” Aunt Mary asked as she walked into the living room.

“Mummy and Daddy are too busy to see my drawing” Edwin said looking gloomy.

“Oh poor baby, don’t worry I’m sure they will look at it later” Aunt Mary said with a smile on her face.

“Okay” Edwin stated still looking gloomy.

“Why don’t I take a look at what you drew?” Aunt Mary asked as she sat down beside him.

“Sure” Edwin replied wholeheartedly.

“Hmm Nice drawing, I really like it”
Aunt Mary said as she looked at Edwin’s drawing.

“Really?” Edwin asked.

“Yeah, sure. It’s a really nice drawing” Aunt Mary replied with a smile.

“Thanks Aunt Mary” Edwin said smiling for the first time since the whole incident.

“Well…… I’m sorry to say this but they couldn’t make it” Aunt Mary said looking downcast.

Edwin asked shocked over what he just heard.
“Hey!! Eddy, get over here, it’s time” Felix screamed.

“Okay…….I’m coming” Edwin said as he slowly walked over to where they all stood.

“Sure why not” Aunt Mary replied.

“Alright everyone, say Cheese!!!” The photograph asked.

“CHEESE!!!” They chorused.
