Those were the Days

By Scott L Vannatter – 158 Words


Carolyn took Billy’s hand and guided them both down the woodsy path.  They had not seen any night crawlers in almost two weeks and it was getting a bit easy to think, imagine they were all gone.  She stepped, for a moment, into her own personal time machine in her mind.  It was so simple to just imagine Billy’s hand as that of her daughter’s and how it had felt to sit in their car as it drove through the tree trunk at that wonderful national park.  What was the name?  Yosemite?  It had been a gloriously wonderful day, full of joy and surprises of the grand variety.  That little hand in hers…

Her mind came back to reality.  Her daughter had died of Cancer and this young man was Billy, whose father was now in that same place with her daughter, all because she…no, it was not her fault.  Those things did it.

“You okay?” Billy asked.


Carolyn’s full adventures are contained in the Carolyn page on this blog.  Enjoy!!!

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
