"Jude, let's learn vocabulary!" said Allen, as he ran to the swings. Jude followed him, and they sat on the swings while Allen took out his pictured dictionary.
"What's your favourite word?" He asked. Jude stared at him with her blue eyes.
"I like dawn," she said sheepishly.
"Dawn." Allen searched in the dictionary. "It's when the sun rises."
"I love its colours," said Jude, smiling. "What about Allen?"
"I like twilight," he said. Jude stared at him.
"And I figured out, twilight does not mean vampire," said Allen, a bit embarrassed with himself.
"Twilight - the time when the sun sets." they read together from the dictionary.
"And I like the word precious!" Jude said excitedly, as Allen fumbled to search the word. "It means something special, like you," she said shyly.
Allen smiled brightly. "Then, you are precious, too!" he said happily. They looked at the word together, as Allen had found it.
"Hey, what is that?" Jude pointed at the word 'pretend'.
Allen read its meaning, then took his Superman action figure and put its lips softly on Jude's cheek.
"What does that mean?" Jude asked, innocently.
Allen smiled. "Pretend the Superman was me."
