100 word Wednesday for 12 th December

This one didn’t come into my reader, so I’m almost a full week late!

‘Do you think he’ll see it?’
‘You’ve decorated the tree beautifully.’
‘It’s not the same though, Dad not being here. What time is it?’
‘Ten to midnight. Santa should be here in a minute.’
‘I would gladly exchange my presents for just one hug from Dad.’
‘I know what you mean. Time to set everything up.’
The laptop was positioned on the table and the two sat in front of it with the tree behind them.
The screen flickered, the singsong calling sign rang out through the house, and Skype worked its magic.
‘Merry Christmas Dad! Wish you were here!’


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! 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 now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
