Our prompt photo for this week is graciously loaned to us by Ellespeth’s friend. Thank you!
DeeGee looked out the hotel window and saw a group of students on the beach. It reminded her of the days she spent at the beach with her parents. She desperately wanted to see them, but had to stay at the hotel because of a migraine headache.
Damon entered the hospital room and saw his mother for the first time in over fourteen years. She was thin, pale and looked very weak. She looked at him with questionable eyes.
His mother cried and tried to reach out to Damon with trembling hands. She was saying my son, my son!
Even after fourteen years she knew in her heart that Damon was her son. He resembled the little boy he once was, and had grown up to become a man.
Damon reached for his mother and took her in his arms. His tears were heavy on his eye lashes and he blinked them away, but they kept falling on his lashes. He gently rocked her back and forth as she joined him with tears of joy as they comforted each other.
