Lying in his arms at night Suzy always felt safe.
This was the favorite time of the day for her.
Throughout the day she would wait eagerly for him to come home. He was after all her first love, the man in her life.
She would brag about him to her friends, show off the gifts he showered on her and spend hours on end with him on holidays.
Even the rest of her family seemed less important with him in the picture.
So much was her dependency on him that days when he would be away made her restless.
Suzy knew there would never be a man like him.
And as she watched him fall asleep next to her, she planted a kiss on his cheeks and whispered 'I love you Dad!'
S is for feeling Safe....and that's the tone of today's tale...
Linking this post for A to Z Challenge. As I promised in the theme reveal post, as part of the Challenge I'm going to write short stories with one or more emotions beginning with the alphabet of the day as the prompt or central idea for the post. Hope you enjoy the challenge!
Linking this to UBC too.
Many of my blogger friends are also taking part in a host of challenges this month. Shower some love on them, won't you? Oh Please ! You know we bloggers are suckers for comments :)
