(I'm posting this incomplete version to shame me into finishing it before the deadline. :lol: )


The worst day of my life started with Sarah bringing me breakfast, something she'd never done before.
"What's this?" I asked.

"Just some scrambled eggs and tomatoes. I noticed you've haven't been starting off your day right in weeks."

"I've had a lot on my mind."

Sarah sat the plate down on the table between us and sat across from me. She shoveled eggs, bacon, and tomatoes on to my plate and then hers.

I sighed. "I'm not still angry with you, you know. It's okay."

Sarah said nothing for a long time. Enough for me to put away half my breakfast. Finally, she sighed. "I'm moving out."

"That's an overreaction. It was one fight."

"A fight about something that's never going to chance. I love Carl, Mom, and that's never going to change."

"He's twice your age. That's never going to change either. When he's 60, you'll only be-."

"Yeah, I know, I remember from last night. I get it. I'm not supposed to be with somebody who makes me happy right here and now because of how things might be 20 years from now. I get that."

I was getting the same headache I'd had last night. "Okay, let's put age aside. What about his temper? He almost killed a man the first time you ever saw him."

"A man who was trying to rape me!"

"Which is why you fell for him. He saved you. Something I'm eternally grateful for, by the way. But-."

"No! No buts! This conversation is over!" Sarah jumped up and ran out of the room.

Okay, NOW I'll read and give critique...

From mother's perspective. Interesting. Looks like a good beginning. Is there any more?
