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.
Laura.
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 which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
