Chapter 12


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.

  1. A beautiful reunion! I wonder how DeeGee will take the news that Damon is her brother? I hope you don’t mind me pointing out that the word ‘questionable’ should probably be ‘questioning’ – they have rather different meanings. 🙂 I look forward to reading the next part.


  2. Thank you! 🙂 And, no I don’t mind you pointing out the questioning. I was glad to finally get to the reunion part. Sometimes I forget and start writing a lot down and half way through I realize I have to condense it to stay within the word count although I’m anxious to get the story told. There is more to come.


  3. I just entered your world. As often happens, I come in to the middle of the story and read backwards to. I am looking forward to the development of the story up to here and beyond. You make us care about the characters!


  4. Oh no! Has Damon really found his mother? To this woman he merely resembles her son as a small child. Children change.
    Oh I hope this fares well for Damon and DeeGee! This is turning out great, Jessie.


  5. Aww, what a sweet and well deserving ending for Damon and his mother. I hope Deegee gets the same as well, but I guess I’ll have to wait till next week to find out 🙂
