When her dad chooses to take her to the prom, even though she can’t walk, she’s in for a surprise. She needed to meet up with a date for the prom. The next day, he gets a gift because of how much he loves his child. This gift changes their lives in every way.
“Look, honey! “Your dad is here!” someone told the 17-year-old girl who was crying by the coffin of her mother Daisy.
Molly’s mother and father, Danny, broke up ten years ago. Since then, Molly had only heard bad things about her father, like that he was a “drunkard” and other things.
Molly didn’t have any bad feelings towards Danny, but she missed their close relationship as daughter and father. Things would change for Molly after her mother died, though.
What’s up, honey? Danny greeted his daughter and gave her a hug before putting a wreath on the coffin of his ex-wife.
Is this your truck, sir? Half of the parking spots are hard to get to. Could you move it? A guest talked to Danny, who drove a truck.
I can say for sure that’s my truck. Wait a minute. I just met the daughter of my mother. I hope that makes sense. I appreciate it.
Meeting Molly made Danny very happy. Over the years, the only thing he had to do with her was pay child support. Daisy told him he couldn’t see Molly because she thought he might be bad for her.
As soon as the funeral was over, everyone left. Danny packed all of Molly’s things after telling her they were going to his house.
“A parcel? He wondered, “Who sent it?” A card on it said, “For Dad of the Year.”
“But why, dad? I can’t get out of my house. Mom and I stayed here. It has a lot of memories for us.
Danny wouldn’t listen, so Molly made a mean face. He knew he couldn’t leave his daughter, especially since she used a wheelchair a lot when she wasn’t on crutches. When Molly was six, she limped because of a problem with her left leg that was caused by something else.
After two days, Molly moved in with her dad. Even though it was small and messy, the house made her feel loved and like she was a part of the family.
As time went on, it got harder for Danny to take care of Molly. He had never seen her grow up, so he didn’t know how to do most things, like braid her hair. He watched how-to videos on the internet to learn how to do it. But that wasn’t all.
He let Molly sleep in his room so she could have a nice place to sleep. So that she could sleep well, he even bought her a new, soft bed. Danny did everything he could to make his daughter feel at ease, but if there was one thing he kept secret, it was that he often went missing at night.
Molly didn’t know where her father was after she fell asleep at night. Since her mother often told her he was at the pub with his friends, she could only think he was there.
A few days later, Molly got off the bus at their house and cried. She found that the door was locked. A bush hid a note. “Under the pot,” is where the keys are. I’ll be right back. “See you, Dad!”
Molly recalled what her mother told her about her father’s “strange” evening habits. She frowned when she thought about her father being out drinking at four in the afternoon.
Danny stayed away from home for a long time. Molly made her own pasta, but she left some for her dad. She cried while she was in bed.
“If I were normal, I wouldn’t be the odd one out,” the person said. I would have set up a date for the prom.
It turned out that Molly’s teacher had told them about the upcoming senior prom. The only person who didn’t have a date to the prom was Molly. No one was interested in her. She thought no one would want to dance with someone with a limp.
When Danny got home, he heard Molly’s loud cries right away.
“What went wrong, honey? What’s wrong with you?
Molly told him about the prom. “I have nothing set. Even when I asked other boys to at least dance with me at prom, they laughed and said no. I don’t want to go to the prom, Daddy! I want to be alone! “Go to sleep!”
Molly turned her back on Danny and cried into her pillow while pretending to sleep.
Danny couldn’t just leave his sick daughter on her own. The next day, he bought Molly a beautiful prom dress. On the day of her prom, Molly got a very sad gift. Her father took her to the prom.
Parents of seniors and seniors themselves were standing outside the hall when a loud engine started up.
Danny jumped off the car. After putting Molly’s wheelchair on the grass, he helped her get out of it. As he pushed the wheelchair on the red carpet, everyone looked at him in amazement.
Danny and his daughter got on the dance floor when the music started. He picked up Molly and carried her around in a circle, moving in time with the music. Molly forgot for a little while that she had a disability and laughed heartily as her father continued to rock her.
“My real hero is my father. I love him more than anything else in the world. Molly cried to her friends after the dance and said, “I feel lucky and proud to be his daughter.
Danny, on the other hand, became the star. He was surrounded by parents, who were all cheering and praising him. After that, Danny quickly talked about himself and his daughter. He didn’t know how much that night would change their lives.
On the way home, Danny and Molly talked about how much fun they had. Danny left the house without being seen after putting Molly to sleep in her room.
Danny had a second job as a helper at a nearby nursing home, which was found out. To save money for his daughter’s hospital bills, he worked extra hours on top of his part-time job as a truck driver. When Molly’s disability was first found years ago, many people told Danny and Daisy that she would never be able to walk.
But one doctor had told them he would treat the girl and get her back on her feet. Danny started working two jobs, and he and his friends quit going to bars to have fun.
Daisy had misunderstood him. She thought he was wasting his time at the bar. Even though Danny tried to explain things to her, she never believed him. They broke up soon after that because of her constant fears and fights. Danny didn’t try because he worked hard for the next few years and only cared about saving money for Molly’s surgery.
It hurt Danny every time he thought about his past. Even as he was driving to work that night, he couldn’t stop thinking about what his ex-wife had said. He finished his shift and went home but didn’t know what Molly and he had in store.
Danny found a gift in his mailbox when he got home from work that morning. This was a nice treat.
“A parcel? “Who did that?” He wanted to know. “Dad of the Year,” it said on the card.
Danny opened the envelope and found a cheque for $10,000 and another letter:
Danny, we hope that this will make things better for your daughter. We hope you hang out with her more in the evenings and that her surgery goes well. Good luck to your friends at the prom!
Danny knew that this was because of the parents he had met the night before. He was so happy that he cried and told Molly the good news.
“Really?! Oh, Daddy… This is really cool! She cried and laughed on his shoulders.
Danny paid for Molly’s surgery with his saved money and the $10,000 cheque. It worked, and she was able to walk without walkers in the end.
Danny quit his second job so he could be with his daughter more. After getting a scholarship to study design in another state, she was set to leave in three months.
Danny wanted to get the most out of his time with Molly. He did this by making the most of it. He also taught her how to run, dance, and ride a bike. He just wanted his daughter to live a normal life and never think about how she had to use a wheelchair and crutches.
