The Eyes Have The Answer

“This is an unusual place,” Garth said.

Emily smiled and nodded her head, but did not speak.  She rarely talked since her accident.  The difficulty of pronouncing words clearly made her self-conscious.

“Look at the green character, Emily.  His eyes are so big and dark.  He looks strange. ”

” I’ll go buy us a drink and you can rest on that bench over there while I’m gone,”  Garth said.

“Emily, where are you?” Garth questioned as he looked around for her.

She stood in front of the  green character, while shifting from one foot to the other, smiling and nodding  her head as she stared into its large black eyes.

Garth handed her the drink and gave her a puzzled look.

She smiled and as they walked away she turned around and waved at the strange green character and began to speak fluently.

“What just happened?”  Garth asked.

“A miracle,” she answered.

  1. What a lovely ending for Emily. The strange green alien obviously wielded his powers and helped her back to normality after her accident. That would seem like a miracle by we mere mortals. Nicely written Jessie.
