Today’s prompt: Use this start to continue a story : I noticed the old man sitting on a park bench sobbing his eyes out….
I noticed the old man sitting on a park bench sobbing his eyes out. He held a paper in his hands, as I drew closer I read the word, cancer, and knew I was at the right place; he was going with me today.
He took out a photograph from his wallet and kissed it. I leaned forward to get a better look at it and found myself staring at my picture from last year. It was taken on the fateful day of my accident.
I held out my hand and whispered, “Papa, I’ve come to take you with me.”
