First Clark postie
Clark hurried out of school with the rest of the excited children. A new dusting of snow coated the ground and his classmates let out shrieks of joys as they jumped into snowbanks and chucked snow across the streets at each other. Clark joined in with a happy battle cry. The icy white snow stung his fingers with cold and he thought his mother might have told him he ought to wear gloves today.
Before long a pink faced Clark with mostly numbed fingers raced up to the door of a wonderfully warm cafe. It took a moment of fumbling to get the door open and he grinned at the cozy heat the inside of the cafe boasted. Clark found a table and searched his bag with slowing warming fingers for the coins of his allowance. He bounced up to the counter and bought himself a cup of hot chocolate nearly bigger than his face. He carried the cup back to his table carefully and wrapped his hands around it with a contented sigh.
