Daddy. Do you love me? Are we friends again?

 

rudy_happy
Yeah. I’ll always love you.

 

ethan_laugh
Yaay! Daddy loves me.

 

 

ethan
Daddy. I want you to have this medal.

(Hands me a medal that was in his room. I take the medal but he doesn’t let it go from his grasp.)

 

ethan_happy
Actually. I changed my mind. I don’t want you to have it. I still want to keep this medal.

 

 

Part 2

 

I try to make up with Ethan. I go to his room. Ok. Ethan, I’m not mad anymore, you can hug me. He hugs me but this time he’s distracted because he’s watching TV.

ethan_sad

ethan
Yeah. Let me get it. (Goes and gets me a little bouncing ball and hands it to me.)

 

 

rudy_happy
Thanks Ethan. (hugs him). I love you Ethan. I don’t hate you. So don’t think that. Ok?          I could never hate you no matter what. Alright?
