April Prompt Challenge

I love the variety of challenges!

Jim stared at the wall.
That was his handwriting.
Who was ‘Him’?
Was the ‘You’ Jim himself?

Pondering over so many questions, he climbed the basement stairs.
There was a letter on the mat.
He opened it.
The clinic said he was a match.

Realisation struck him,
He had been here before.
The date on the letter was current, but he knew he had read it previously.
And declined to follow it through.

More information channeled into his mind.
A one night stand from years ago had contacted him, saying he had a son.
A son. Needing a bone marrow transplant.
He’d agreed to be tested, firmly believing he was not the child’s father.

He flopped into a chair.
Fate had given him a second chance, but would he take it?
Could he take it?
He reached for the phone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
