She Belongs to Us

A Mother's Decision

By Mrs. WPublished about a year ago 1 min read

Her toes curled through the chilling sand as the wave retreated, and she gazed at the ocean in silence. “Will this work?” She beckoned the white noise in a whisper, with her eyes closed and fists clenched tightly.

A voice bellowed back: “She is mine too!” Suddenly, heat radiated through her body, bringing with it a sense of peace.

With the confirmation she needed, a new day had now begun. Only the waves still remember her footprints in the sand.
