Friday Fictioneers



By Teresa Dean Smeigh

copyright August 2016


I looked down at him and listened to the baby cries, the sheer panic in the cries. I hugged him tighter to try and let him know he wasn’t alone, but it didn’t work.

My dad tried to quiet him as well. There was no comforting him. I have to admit I hated the noise myself. The fireworks are bad enough, but around here, they still go off over and over again. I myself jump at each one.

We know from experience we will just have to ride it out. Eventually we start to ignore his whimpers. Eventually he barks.
