Nikki says: Loved this even though it was a cliffhanger. Now I want to know if she helps him. LOL
Week 435 Winner
Nikki says: Hauntingly beautiful and not what I was expecting. I like that. Diferent read for me.
“Help me find him,” I begged.
“We’ll help you back home, ”a lady cried.
She took me to a home I didn’t recognize.
“He’s here child. You need to do something soon.” I heard her say into a phone.
The man came shortly after that. Speaking of things, I didn’t recall, talking as if I were listening prattling on about the weather. Saying he’d be back tomorrow and I was to stay here.
He came back the next day and he started yelling at me. I really didn’t like this man he reminded me of my grandfather. Was he my grandfather? Things had slid away from me; my memory wasn’t what it had once been of course this was my grandfather and he was looking after me since I was only a child. The next day I looked for him again. I didn’t know why I couldn’t find my son; but I knew I would have no rest until I did. It was then he came back, the man that reminded me of my grandfather. He came back with a slew of people with weird phones, cameras held in their hands.
“Do you know where he is?” I asked.
“There,” the woman answered pointing to him.
It was then I saw him as he once was my boy.
“Go into the light,” She commanded, “All is well.”
I took one more look at the man and then the world drifted away an eternity of light and goodness awaiting me.
