tiny tale #74: A Sight to Behold

Rick and Kate watched their little girl, their eyes following her every moment.
Their entwined hands gripped each other a little more tighter.
They watched her look around in delight at the majestic tree that stood in the middle of the clearing.
For a while, Amy sat on the bench, but she couldn’t sit still for long.
Rick and Kate watched as she ran her hands all around the tree as if committing it to memory.
They looked at each other and smiled. Both had tears in their eyes.
Their little girl wasn’t blind anymore.

This post was written in response to Sadje’s What Do You See prompt #30. Thank you Sadje for hosting this challenge. The challenge is to use the picture prompt as inspiration to compose an original story, poem, or a caption.

    1. When did I say that it was dark? πŸ˜›
      Thank you so much, Bharath.
      I open WordPress and start writing. Oh, and the prompts help too. That’s how I can write like this. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜›
      But if you think about it, Amy’s world used to be dark.


      1. I know right! That’s the one thing that keeps me going. Don’t lose the streak. I hope you don’t. Hi5! 😁 Now, I don’t have any idea what I’ll write for tomorrow. πŸ˜‚

  1. Meanwhile, another mother also had tears running down her cheeks. But her tears were were bittersweet. Even though the loss of her daughter was a stake through her heart, she was glad another child had her little angel’s eyes.

    1. Ohh Sid. You read my mind. I was about to write that her ashes were spread around the tree, but then I decided against it. I love your addition. My mom loved it too btw. She had told me so. I wish you’d write more, chakka thavala.


  2. Elsewhere, a mother was also shedding her tears. But her tears were bittersweet. Even though she will never see her daughter again, she was glad her little angel’s eyes were still seeing the beauty of the world.
