Grandpa's face told everything about him. Tamika loved her grandfather's face. Even when he was upset or disappointed with her, she could still his love for her in his face. As an actor in the theater, Tamika's grandpa was a man of many faces. However, when Tamika sees her grandpa making a different face, a mean face, a face that did not show love. She became scared that someday her grandpa would look at her with that face. However, her reassures her that it was only a pretend face (for the theater) and that he would always love her.
