's Because We Are Awesome Drabble-a-Thon
“Mom! Mom! Come look!”
Heidi’s heart jumped into her throat when she heard her oldest son Simon yell. Was he hurt? Was something wrong? She ran into his bedroom, grateful she could walk again.
Reaching the room, she immediately realized she didn’t have to worry. Simon was sitting by his window, a huge grin on his face.
She crossed the room. “What is it? What’s wrong?”
“You’ve gotta see this,” Simon grinned. He then turned to the window and his eyes unfocused.
“Simon, if this is some sort of joke, it’s not...” She stopped the minute rain began to pour outside. Before she could say anything, it stopped as quickly as it began. “I...Simon, what’s going on?”
“Just watch.” The rain started again, and then stopped.
Heidi sank onto her son’s bed, the breath knocked out of her. “How...?” But she knew the answer. She knew before she even asked the question. “Nathan was telling the truth,” she whispered.
Angela had convinced her Nathan was a crazy alcoholic when he tried to tell her he could fly. She had left without ever hearing him out, terrified he would hurt her or their boys. But watching her son start and stop the rain, she knew there was something to what he had tried to tell her.
“Mom, are you okay?”
She blinked, realizing Simon was standing next to her. She pulled him into a hug as a smile spread across her face. “Yeah, honey. I am.” She knew what she had to do for herself and her boys.
