Unconditional Love

Friday Fictioneers!

This week’s photo prompt is submitted by Courtney Wright! 


My daughter was standing at the front door with duct tape in her hands. As soon as I entered and saw her, I couldn’t help but sob. She must’ve overheard the conversation I had with her mother the other day about how my shoes are ruined and the thumb sticks out. I don’t know how my 7-year-old daughter understands that I cannot buy new shoes. We sat down and fixed my shoes together with the tape. When it was done, she gave me a smile and said she loved me.

I’ll work harder now. My little princess deserves better.

    1. Thanks😊. When I wrote it, it was from the perspective of a father. But sure, the narrative can also be from the mother’s perspective. I just wanted to show that the daughter understands the hardships their parents go through. Thanks for reading and commenting😊
