365b Writing Prompts: Out of your reach
Was there a toy or thing you always wanted as a child , during the holidays or on your birthday but never received? Tell us about it.
I always asked for very simple things, my parents always fulfilled my wish. I recall once I saw some of our neighborhood kids playing with a tennis ball. I don’t know why I thought I must have one too.
In the evening when my Dad returned from work, he was hardly inside the door of our house, I stopped him and asked him if I could have a tennis ball, he immediately turned around and bought four tennis balls, one each for my other siblings and me.
Now when I think of that day, I wonder why I didn’t wait to ask my Dad later, he must have been tired, or hungry.
