about this story

I placed the finishing touches on my raspberry pie with delicate accuracy. My girlfriend loved raspberry pie, so on her return back home from France I thought I'd surprise her with her favorite dessert. I'd taken all day to make it in my small kitchen in my dinky apartment.
After locking my door I headed outside to walk the quick path to her apartment, pie held on top of my shoulder easily. I was a waiter at a fancy restaurant downtown.
The sun was setting, casting shadows on the ground and through a fence around the park. I had to go through the
park to get to her apartment, but there wasn't much farther to go.
Children played in the park happily, screaming and laughing. As I was crossing the rubber mulch I moved the pie to hold it in both hands. A grin crossed my face. I new Rachel would be happy to see me.
Suddenly I tripped on a forlorn object and fell forward, planting my face into the plastic-wrap covered pie. No, no, no! All my hard work had gone to shambles... The crust was smashed completely. I looked up to see a little kid, no older than four or five, walk towards me.
"Oops." She said, lifting her hands in the air, "Doggy fall over."
"What?" I asked morosely.
"Doggy fall over." She walked to my feet and picked up a clay dog that I must have tripped over. Then the child walked away.
I sighed and got to my feet, brushing myself off and picking up my ruined pie. So much for my hard work.
