Adieu

cooltext1108140704.pngI am seeing a lot of strangers visiting our home, since the last few days. Mom- Dad have been chatting with them, and then they look at me. Soon the spotlight is on me. Some people see me with curiosity while I can see love in some eyes.

Am I imagining or is Mom wrestling with guilt.

Dad was explaining something to Aaron, but the child simply balked and refused to meet his eye.

Dad then came over to me, patted my back lovingly and said something about the newborn’s allergy, and I knew it was my last day there.

  1. That was a beautiful take on the prompt!
    Reminds me of the time when my in laws had to move their dog ‘Gullu’ from the house to the kennel, when I returned back after delivery, not because the baby was allergic, but I was not ok with the dog jumping all over me.
    I don’t hate or hurt animals, but I like them only from a distance.

  2. Awww noooo. Whenever I read some dog post I always feel like quitting my job now and getting myself a puppy. I don’t want to take up a dog with job because that would mean another complaint against work (I dont get enough time with my dog 😀 )

    I lurvee the picture too!!
