"She'll love this, won't she, scott?" he asked, not taking his eyes from he road. (He had a fear of removing his eyes from the road, now.)
"Yes," Scott said shyly.
Kyle Smith reached over and patted his son's small shoulder. Scott looked puzzled, but didn't say anything.
"You really enjoy her, don't you, Scott? Anela, I mean."
"Yes, I do," Scott said, "I think she'll have fun tonight."
"Do you ..." He swallowed. 'Do you think a lot about the ... the accident, Scott?"
Scott's lip trembled. "Yeah, I guess I do," Scott said.
Kyle held back his own feelings and said, "Well, I'm sorry about that. But there's not much we can do about it. ... But we'll have fun tonight, won't we."
"Well, what are we waiting for?" asked kyle cheerily. he cut off the engine and leapt from the car. 'Come on! Let's go get ANela!"
Scott pranced behind him, and together, the two knocked on Anela's door.
