Constancy – Friday Fictioneers

Here is this week’s entry into the weekly challenge brought to us by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

Here are the rules: Use the photo as inspiration, write a hundred(ish) words – and share! Here goes my offering for this week – and I welcome your comments again!

“Dad! Dad! Can you hear me?”
“Yes, Freya, loud and clear.”
“You’re so far away, on the other side. I can hardly see you.”
“I can see you just fine, sweetheart.”
“I wish –”
“I know. But wishing won’t change anything. It will just make you miserable. I want you to be happy.”
“We all miss you, Dad.”
“You don’t need to miss me. I am always here. Right here, where it matters.”

A gentle warmth enveloped me, even though the air was chill this morning.
Yes. My Dad is always here.

  1. Sad and beautiful at the same time 😦 When I jsut started reading it, I thought it will be about innocent play between a father and a child, but you broke me.

    1. Oh, I’m sorry to sadden you. Honestly though, it was meant as a comfort – my dad will always be with me. Whilst i hate that he is gone physically, he’s still in my heart. That’s how we live on, don’t you think?

  2. Your sentimentality was not at all trite, darling, and I loved it. Thank you for this story.
