Band Aid Courage



We have all been here.  Go to See*Photo*Write


Quick!  You can do it!

James heard Dan’s voice.  He trusted his friend and followed him blindly.  Whatever Dan said was the law.

Dan shifted from foot to foot, his breath coming out quickly.  “Come on!  We gotta go!  Just do it!”  Dan watched as the backs of his pack of boys disappeared around the corner.

James hesitated.  He heard Dan hiss, “Coward!”

James stared up into Dan’s eyes.  Without breaking contact or even blinking, James grasped the loosened edge of the band aid.

  2. Susan, you write so well.

    With so few words you draw character and set scene and create situation. A true talent. Thank you for sharing it with us and thank you, too, for reading my blog.

    Peace,
