fiction fri...saturday? - 3

(yeah, i forgot about this yesterday ... )


"make a wish, sara. any wish."
"okay. i want a million dollars ... well, actually-no, never mind that."
"why don't you want a million dollars?"
"because then i'll be stuck up and i won't appreciate God." the youngster's chocolatey eyes widened with every syllable.
"oh, i see. that makes sense. then what will you wish for?"
"a cookie."
"that's a good wish." mary's blue eyes twinkle.

the words came tumbling back like bricks. where was this sweet sara now? if only she'd remember the words she'd once uttered ... the pure innocence of her childhood ... and now. mary covered her face with her hands and rubbed on her temple and sighed.
she murmured a silent prayer for sara's sake, and for all lost souls.

(ps-i know, i know, depression once again ... )
