Surprise Reunion

As Dalton walked into the school, the anticipation among students and staff grew. Jaxon, a current student at Reitz, had no idea that his big brother was back from his service, and the reunion was nothing short of magical. The tears of surprise and joy started flowing.

But Wait, There's More

But the surprises didn't end there. Dalton had one more trick up his sleeve, and it was one that would make this reunion even more unforgettable. He made his way to the school cafeteria, where their grandmother, who had been tirelessly serving meals to students for decades, was in for the shock of her life. The moment Dalton walked into the cafeteria, her eyes welled up with tears of pure happiness.

What I've learned is I have very little chance at winning most of these fights.
