Keep an eye out.

10 Jul

Would she show up? Of course she would, she always did. Meanwhile the sun felt good on his skin and this was a nice place to be.

As these days passed, Armeen began to understand more and more of what the kids around him called out. The sound of them playing around the pool, splashing, laughing, shouting calmed him somehow.

“Are we ready for our lesson?” Peggy was smiling.

Yes, always!”

“I brought you something delicious. Do you know the word for this?”, she held up a donut.

All at once he was flooded with such happiness, such joy. Of course he had no idea what it was called, but he knew she would tell him and that he would learn. So much sureness, safety and calm.

“A ring-cake?” said Armeen, and they both laughed.
