The Court house (part one)

Buzz Buzz “New message”

My fingers type the pass-code into the bright screen

My fingers type the pass-code into the bright screen “New message from Mom”

My finger trembles

My finger trembles I had to be dreaming

I click on the message with shaking hands

“Hey, my sunshine. I miss you so much. I want you to come home. I’m doing so much better, I promise I won’t hurt you again. You’re my sunshine and I need my light.”

I say out loud in disbelief

I say out loud in disbelief I start to type but stop

Did I want this

Did I want this My heart ached for my mothers’ arms to be around me

“Mommy I’ve missed you too. Where do I meet you? Mommy, I love you”

I pressed my finger into the bottom corner and select SEND

I drop the phone beside me and lose myself in my thoughts

I drop the phone beside me and lose myself in my thoughts What if she was better

What if I could finally leave the beating

What if I could finally leave the beating... Bruises...

What if I could finally leave the beating... Bruises... The pain...

What if I could finally leave the beating... Bruises... The pain... All of it behind...

Hope started to fill my body as if I was glowing

I quickly open my phone and don’t think to see who the message was from

“Honey meet me at the courthouse tomorrow”

Joy filled my lungs as if I was inhaling a new drug that made everything feel better

I start to tell my mother how much I’ve missed her

I start to tell my mother how much I’ve missed her But I stop myself

I start to tell my mother how much I’ve missed her But stop I'll see her tomorrow

Tomorrow at the courthouse at 10...
