This week’s photo prompt is supplied by Dawn M. Miller
DeeGee and Damon met in the Gazebo where it was quiet. She told him she had received a telegram shortly before meeting him.
They looked at each other and she was shaking as she tried to open the envelope. He reached over and covered his hands over hers so they could open it together.
The message said her parents and two children had been rescued and transported to a hospital in Honolulu. The boat they were in had capsized and the owner was missing, but his body was found two days later.
Damon and DeeGee took the next airline flight going to Honolulu. As she leaned her head against his shoulder he kept trying to comfort her with reassuring words that her parents would be o.k.
His shoulder was damp from her tears and he was fighting back his own tears with gnawing pain while recalling Garnet’s warning to guard his feelings toward her.
