Day Thirty-Eight of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
We're coming to the end of the countdown!  Here's my contribution to day 38 of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration.

The Gift
 
“Be gentle with her, Dean. Smooth and slow. Lift off the brake; now press the accelerator. Gently! That’s it. Keep her straight.”
 
Even with the seat pulled all the way forward, ten-year-old Dean could barely reach the pedals and see over the dash. The tip of his tongue protruded from the right side of his mouth, betraying the intensity of his concentration. He focused single-mindedly on getting everything exactly right, the same way he’d approached caring for Sammy and learning to shoot.
 
Watching Dean vibrating with delighted determination, John was humbly grateful that the best birthday presents sometimes were free.

On an empty country lane in the middle of nowhere ... that's how I picture it, anyway!
