Everybody Falls

fall

But I did everything my Dad told me to,” Timmy pleaded, to a seemingly empty room, “So why am I here? I’m only nine.

An elderly stepped out of the darkness to his left, “Hey there kiddo,” the man said, “I’m here to hold your hand and take you with me, they are very excited to meet you kiddo.”

“I did the right thing Grandpa,” Timmy replied, “My Dad told me to tell him when, our step Dad hit or shoved my Mom, and I did, I texted him as soon as things happened. He told me he thought I was very brave and was on his way.”

“I know,” Grandpa replied, “You can’t be brave all the time, even the mightiest of heroes fall some time. There was an accident, but don’t worry buddy, it’s just one life, one day soon enough they will all be here with us.

Till Death

Our pastor told us today during services that what we get after this life we are judged, and it is decided whether we will spend the next life in the warm loving lights of heaven or the fiery wastelands of HeLL. I suppose there are no guarantees where we will end up, and we can only be mostly sure as our time comes. Oh I am sure so many look forward to seeing their friends and family and especially our pets because I don’t think one could ever call a place heaven without our furry friends. The line was short today, and the Angel telling us where to go was as beautiful as anyone I had ever seen. As I waited my turn and listened to the man in front of me talk about his excitement in seeing his long passed wife a smile came across as I realized my vows said “Till Death do us Part,” I guess it’s time be a single man again!

Training Wheels

“Are you sure you got a hold of me Daddy,”  four year old Davie said to his Dad as he started to move the pedals on his brand new big kid bike.

“Don’t worry about it little man,” his father replied as he began to push and let go of his son, and his bike. As Davie pedalled for the very first time on his own without training wheels he felt a swell of pride leading up to his heart and out of his eyes in the form of tears, he smiled.

As Davie turned back around to face his Dad he said, “You lied! You said you wouldn’t let go!”

The proud parent took Davies head, pressing it against his chest as he hugged his boy and said, “Well Davie, sometimes you need to feel secure in the fact I will be there for you when you fall, so you aren’t afraid to do things I know you can do without me.”

Savior

lockers

Your first day of High School can be a terrifying thing even in the best of circumstances, and by the laws that govern the halls I was the tall geek with thick rimmed glasses. I felt my books being knocked to the ground, accompanied by the hyena like laughter that plagued the group of boys whose happiness usually depended on how miserable they can make others feel. This time around though the noise that followed wasn’t my books being kicked from one to the other, no, that sound was replaced by the thud of one body hitting another and then crashing into the lockers that littered the halls.

“Leave him the hell alone you prick,” an older boy yelled as my tormentors scattered at the sight of an actual fight. High School for me anyway got better each and every day, all because one kid stood up for me when no one else would, I only wish I was brave enough to return the favor just one of the times those some kids made my savior their new and only target.

Thank the Rain

 

rain

 

The first time I saw the kid I would be remiss if I said I paid more interest in him than just a passing glance. My balcony overlooking Wilbur street was the most amazing spot to read or nap when it was raining.. It was probably the tenth or eleventh time before I really took notice as the kid stood in the rain with the bowl held high collecting rainwater. I followed the boy to the hole underneath of our building and watched as he slowly slid the now full bowl into the hole, careful not to spill a drop. When I followed him in I was greeted by the boy and another young child, this one a girl who was handcuffed to a pole buried in the dirt who said, “Please help me, my brother has been taking care of us, the man never came back this time.”

My Best Friend

My best friend has always been right by my side. When your best friend can forgive you for accidentally killing him, you know that it’s something special right? We were ten when it happened, and I was fifteen when he came back. As I stand here perched at the peak of the First Federal bank building he is cheering me on with his ten year old smile.

He whispers at me to go, go and I can be ten again, go and I can be back under that bridge and I can save him, So I go.

Returning Home

The people of Earth have dreamed of this moment since the beginning of time, and here we are about to land on the first planet that can support life. Cole Druthers landed on the alien planet in a clearing of which the scientists told him he would be able to land without incident.

Upon landing Cole was completely awestruck at the site he saw all around him. Abandoned buildings as far as the eye could, accompanied by roads, and street, and all of the many objects would could find on Earth. A sign on the ground caught his eye, and on this sign he read “To those who find this planet, know that we humans systematically destroyed this planet with our desire for power, we have now moved on to a new planet with most of our technology to help us get started, and even as I write this our people have landed there and began to build massive stone structures to trap our technology in, in hopes that with it gone we will be able to do better this time.

Five Sentence Fiction -New Kid-

Ten years old, and he was moving away from the only neighborhood he has ever known. Rudy Simon, lived on Magnolia Dr. his entire life, but today was moving day so every little thing in his life was changing. Rudy put his hands against the back of his parent’s station wagon as he watched boys he never played with play basketball, and girls he never talked to jump rope, his heart couldn’t hurt but ache.

“This time,” he said to himself as his nose pressed against the window, “This time it will be different.”

Rudy decided at that moment, he didn’t like who he was, and this was his change, play with the new kids, and to talk to the new girls, because when you are the new kid, anything is possible.

Five Sentence Fiction -Frozen

This was probably one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Who knows what I was thinking when I decided tonight was the night to be a good person. Me, Jordan Freeman, made the decision to be out in this blizzard at night, all to make a girl happy. She seemed so happy at the store when she was holding this, and she dropped it on her way out, her mother not caring that this is what she wanted. Only 2 more miles to go, and I’ll be at her house, and that little girl will be able to sleep tonight.
