Jenny Matlock's Writing Prompt


Its Easter. The first one without her. Tom looked at his shabby self in the mirror. Life was so much easier when she was around. He went down to fix breakfast and the kids were already there. His heart broke for them- they looked so pale, so terrified . He needed to make this Easter good for them. Reassure them that life was beautiful.

Some time later the kids heard a bang and opened the front door. There he was in that silly blue suit. "I have buried eggs all over the garden" he announced. Two hours later, they were all covered in mud, collected plenty of eggs and had laughed so hard that their tummies ached. Life was beautiful.

Oh, Oh. I love the sweet direction you took this.

This was definitely the most unusual use of the picture prompt this week. I really hope to see you again. I ended up actually liking the guy for the first time since I've been reading.
