Dealing with Grief


A 100-word challenge organised by Rochelle every week. This week’s photo prompt is provided by Karuna.

“Roger!”, Katie was screaming from the veranda. “She left her toys in the garden again! It was raining. Now they’re all ruined.”

Roger was reading something. He calmly removed his glasses and came to the veranda. He held Katie with both his arms.

“What? I am talking about Amanda. She won’t listen to me. You try telling her not to do that!”

Roger hugged Katie, bringing her close to his heart. “Honey, we used to have a daughter, we don’t, anymore. She used to leave her toys outdoor.Now its you who’s doing it, but you just don’t remember.”

  1. Very well done. Sounds like Roger deserves a nice cup of tea, even though he doesn’t seem rattled.
    I was in hospital for a few weeks and I was opposite a lady with dementia and she kept talking about her husband coming in to see her and her grown up daughters were children. It was rather sad, but also quite frustrating soon…especially when she got out of bed during the night and had a fall. The person in the bed next to me got in trouble for pressing the button too many times as they didn’t respond.
    Your lady is better at home with Roger if he can manage.
