Winter Baby

Today Pegman took us to Happy Jack, AZ. And I managed to write a happy story! Thanks for reading.

You told me town was shuttered due to inclement weather but I have to get home. Need to get to you. I love you.
You said you were fine. Everything at home was normal. But I heard worry inside the soft tones in your voice. I know you.
Streets are pretty bad. Looks like Doc Wilson is stuck on Main Street. So is Lars Nielson. I’m gonna’ make it, though. I’m better than this weather.
Why on God’s Green Earth did I drag you to Happy Jack? Hotter than the hinges of the hot place in summer. Glacial in winter. Lonely.
But you’re a strong gal. Always.
Almost home. One more mile. Mile and a half. Up the stairs. I’m home.
“Sarah?” Nothing. Then the tiniest whimper from the bedroom. My heart aches.
But you smile from the bed and show me our baby.
“Look, Samuel, we have a son.”

  1. Lovely ending, Lish. The photo is excellent, too. Great story.


  2. He didn’t know she was having a baby? Thank God he made it home safely.
