In The Hollow Of His Hand
I heard Pop say as he opened the curtains. I had barely opened my eyes when I realized that the sun rays had illuminated my room.
“Good morning Pop” I mumbled.
“Morning Sunshine.” He said.
“How was your night Pop?” I asked.
“It was splendid Pumpkin.” He answered.
“I thought you said you’d head out early.” I challenged.
“Nope; I said I had to be up early.” He corrected.
“Fine. Heading out already?” I asked.
“Yes Pumpkin.” He answered.
“Okay Pop; have a great day.” I said.
I needed to continue my sleep.
“Any plans for the day; at least while I am away?” he asked.
“Nope Pop.” I replied.
“You should visit Aunt K so that you wouldn’t be bored whilst I am at work.” He suggested.
“I will Pop.” I agreed.
“Would you be heading somewhere else at the close of work?” i asked.
“Yes Pumpkin. Bella and I have to be somewhere; but it would be brief.” He replied.
“Where would the kids be?” I asked.
“Oh! not to worry; we’ll go together since their school is a two-minute drive from my office. Bella would pick them up on her way to my office; we would go to the place; then we would head back here for dinner.” He explained.
“Okay Pop. Be safe.” I replied.
“I will. Bye.” He said and pecked me on the forehead.
“Bye Pop.” I replied.
