The Rogue Speaks:
O.k., so I have two posts for Alphabe-Thursday! Others have done that, so I guess I can, too! The only issue is my music, which I can't seem to coordinate between the two. To read the first two chapters of the story, go here, then here. So here is the contination of my story, The Jumper.
A KINDER, GENTLER WORLD
“Sir, your children are here. Don’t let them see you do this!”
An officer had led Miriam and Aaron into the living room, and through the slider, they could see their father sitting on the railing. He looked so very old and frail. Slowly, he turned his head toward them. He gazed at them through haunted eyes, then turned away.
“Can we talk to him?” Miriam asked. The officer nodded.
“Dad!” Miriam pleaded. “Please don’t do this! We love you! We need you! Whatever it is, we can get through it together!”
Aaron hugged his sister a little tighter, and stepped closer to the open door. “Dad, it’s not too late to make this thing right. We’ll work out a plan, the three of us. Please, Dad! Think of Mom! She wouldn’t want this! We need to stay together! For her sake! Come inside, Dad!”
Miriam turned to Aaron. “What thing? What did he do? Aaron, what thing?”
“Let’s just get him in, Miriam. We’ll talk about that later.”
Well, that's it for this week. Come back next week for the next chapter!! Oh, and go here for the other post.
