The next day you wake up next to Jessie.
She usually gets up before you do, but the ticking time bomb inside of you feels like it’s ready to explode. You run to the downstairs bathroom where you think no one will hear you. After your done you feel flushed. Your limbs weak and trembling. Water. Turning on the faucet your first instinct is to cup your hands and let them fill to the brim. You take giant gulps and feel the life rush back to your lips. Continuing, you let the brisk, cool water wash over your hands a few times before you decide to cup them once more and let cleansing take place, palming the water your face gently, eyes closed and it’s really refreshing. Something like an exasperated sigh of relief escapes your throat.
Looking in the mirror you see the blood surfacing to your cheeks. Look alive. You dab your face with the red and green Holiday hand towel hanging to your right. You look in the mirror once more and breathe deep. This is happening. Stepping out of the bathroom you’re startled when you see him. Like a ghost, watching over to make sure you keep in step. You look over to the table and see he has a bowl of oatmeal set at your usual seat facing the window. You thought you smelled cinnamon. You look back at him,
“Hey Dad… Good morning.” Unsure of how to act. It’s been so long since you’ve seen him with this look on his face. Emily approaches slowly, reaches up on her toes and stretches her neck as her dad leans down and she greets him with a kiss on the cheek. When’s the last time I did that. “Is that for me?”
He nods, serious “Yeah…it’ll be good for your stomach.”
“Just sit and eat.” You’ll always be a child.
Just looking through my collective tumblr posts via my public page, and I must say, I like how this thing has turned out. I think i can honestly say it’s like a pretty decent representaion of who I am, ya know?
So on that note, I noticed that one thing was missing -my original intent on reopening my tumblr- my writing. I really need to get this work done, sooooo I’m try to start posting stuff on here whether it’s fragment from my so called novel in progess or just things i think are good ideas/scribblings.
Hope yallz kidsz enjoy it!
