Fiction: Waiting

Lillie McFerrin Writes

 

 

Melanie’s father told her to stay seated on the bench in the shopping mall until he returns.

Don’t worry I’ll be back soon, he said.

The poor child sat there, she did not even stand up to see the different things in that large shopping mall, she was afraid her father will worry if he came back and she was not there.

Morning turned to afternoon, and then it was late evening, her friend Georgia offered to give her  a ride home,she refused, she believed her father would come and get her.

She was so tired, she fell asleep, she dreamed her father was telling her to go home, he was unable to come for her, when she opened her eyes she found herself surrounded by friends staring at her, Georgia laid her arm around her shoulder  and said, “I’m so sorry your father was killed when he tried to cross the street.”

  1. Oh! So sad about her father. Unfortunate that such accidents happen. The obedient child was punished this way…
    Nicely expressed.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Sad things happen. Your story depicts this. Good things happen too such as good friends offering support. Your story depicts this.

    Thank you for this Ranu.

    All good wishes,

    robert
