One hot summer afternoon, Helen Parr stood in the kitchen frosting a cake. It was almost time to leave for the barbecue. “Hey, Mum,” said Helen’s eldest son Dash, running into the room at Superspeed. “Why do we have to go to some silly neighborhood barbecue?”
“Dashiell Robert Parr,” said Helen. “We’re lucky to have been invited. You know we’re doing our best to fit in here. And remember no Superpowers outside the house.”
A while later, the Parrs walked around the block to their first neighborhood party. Helen placed her cake on the dessert table. Her husband Bob headed over to the grill to help out. Her daughter Violet looked around for someone to talk to and Dash watched some children compete in a sack race. He couldn’t join in because it might reveal his Super speed.
“Are you too chicken to play?” A boy teased. Dash scowled. When the mean boy hopped by, he mysteriously tripped and fell. Dash smiled to himself and brushed off his sneaker. His speed had come in handy, after all, meanwhile, out of the comer of her eye, Helen sows Jack-Jack atop a high brick wall. He was about to topple oft In a flash, she shot her arm all the way across the yard and caught him. She sighed with relief and cuddled Jack-Jack. The other mother just rubbed her eyes and mumbled something about not sleeping much the night before. Oops, Helen thought to herself.
A while later, Helen saw the neighbors enjoying her cake. She looked around the yard and spotted Dash telling a story. Violet was eating an ice cream cone with a girl her age. Wow, it looks like we really fit in here, Helen thought. But just then, she overheard one of the neighbors
“There’s Something Strange about those Purrs,” he said.
Had someone discovered them were their Surer powers to be revealed?
“All that may be true,” someone else added, “but that Helen sure makes a terrific cake! “Everyone agreed, and the conversation ended.
The Parrs chuckled to themselves. Their cover wasn’t blown after all! Maybe they were a little strange compared to the average family, but they were doing their best to act normal.
Bob and Helen rounded up their children and headed for home, pleased with the way things had gone. As they reached their house, Helen gave Bob a great big kiss, which the kids did their best to ignore.
