Thank you to writer, Kevin J Milsom, for taking part in the ‘Write a story in less than one hundred words’ challenge. You can read his response, Travel Plans, below.
‘You won’t need all that stuff, Sarah!’ Mother’s voice held its usual firmness.
Naturally, I ignored her.
‘Yes…changes of clothes, for sure. Many things!’
‘You won’t, my darling.’ She frowned. ‘Are you in pain?’
I realised I wasn’t. Hurrah for paracetamol!
Harry gripped my hand tightly. I saw him clearly now, yet different somehow. My whole family looked different.
Mother smiled at my expression.
‘They can’t see us now, darling. It’s time. I won’t leave you again.’
Initially, the light was blinding; just as the deepest peace enveloped me. ‘Oh Mother, it’s so beautiful.’
Well I’m sure you’ll agree, that one was quite a weepy.
