Friday Fictioneers – The Escape

PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll

Maria’s eyes darted anxiously from the tracks to the door leading outside.  Would the train come in time?

“Momma, where’re we goin?”  Matthew was a bundle of energy and had asked the same question at least six times.

“To Grandma’s, sweetie”

“Where’s Papa?”

She glanced at her son as he kicked his legs in the seat next to her.  “I don’t know, baby.”

“But, I want Papa!”  Tears sprang greedily to his eyes as he glared at her.

“I know, love.”  Tears welled in her own eyes.

I don’t know if I can do this on my own.
