Pride and Prejudice

three line tales week 116: an astronaut doing space repairs

“Of all days, today I dreamt that she was an astronaut; out in space installing whatever-it-is on a spacecraft, making us proud” Rita sobbed into her handkerchief. “What a tragedy!”
“It’s ok dear, not everything is in our control….” trailed off Edgar, looking utterly devastated.
Holding hands tightly they watched their ecstatic daughter say “I do” to her artist husband.

  1. I love that story! Oh, it’s sometimes so difficult as a parent to stand back and let your children be happy in the way they choose! Still, at least Edgar and Rita were at the wedding; they’ll get over it!
