Steven knew how much Connie loved sweet snacks and how her parents were so strict about her having any.
He cared a lot about her, so he wanted to give her a nice gift to let her know how special she was to him.
Steven ended up picking a large chocolate bar and bought it for her, imagining the smile Connie would have when he showed it to her.
He rushed to her house and rung the bell, hoping it was she who answered instead of her mom and dad.
He was so glad to see that indeed she was there, with her big smile and pretty eyes.
"Hi Connie!" "Hi Steven. What brings you over?" She asked, and invited him inside.
"I wanted to give you a gift"
"A gift?" She asked in surprise, smiling gratefully
"Just because." He replied earnestly and offered her the big bar of chocolate.
Connie was delighted and hugged Steven tightly, giving him a shy kiss on the cheek.
"Thank you so much! Come, we'll share it. It's the least I can do!"
