This Campaign will run from August 22nd to October 31st. hosted by @RachaelHarrie
This week’s challenge is to write a 200 word story
Imago -Velvet Touch:
“The message will get to her. Be safe.” Mrs. Aletta waves then closes the door behind her thinking about the lacuna in the room.
Her mother’s head peeks around the corner of the staircase, “He’s cute.”
“He seems sorry for something.” She presses with a small smirk.
“He is.” A miasmatic frown crosses Marie’s face.
“Want to talk about it?” Mrs. Aletta points to the kitchen, “I can get the oven mitts and a pillow.”
Marie smiles weakly, “Okay.”
Marie places her head delicately on the pillows as her mother lifts her hair to oscitate out over top. These mitts were specially made for her out of silk velvet so as it runs across her cheek, courses over her scalp and down her hair. It is the closest thing to human skin she can touch.
It’s soothing having the velvet rub her head in soft even strokes wiping her worries away. Seems funny that her relinquishing of worry is only possible with the synchronicity of her mother not feeling too emotional and luckily today is just a calm day where her mother’s only concern is in easing her only child’s problems. Marie can feel it; just the love.
200 words exactly (not including title)
