Story A Day #25: It Ended on a Sunny Day

It ended on a sunny Sunday and that is why she smiled as she left. That, and because the angel who came to attend her was exactly as she had imagined: beautiful, friendly, and smelling like sugar cookies, which were her favorite.

***

On Saturday, the doctors told her mother that they had done all they could; her mother left, weeping and planning not to return. It had all been too much for her.

***

Her mother had split Friday between the hospital and the church; she could not see the angels that wept with her in either place.

***

The rain was coming down in sheets and the bus driver for the Thursday school field trip never saw the car going the wrong way on the highway.

***

She had such a wonderful time during the field trip; she and her school chums spent the afternoon talking about what they wanted to be when they grew up. They broke into a run and were chased by their own laughter as they tried to not get soaked by the big fat raindrops that began to fall just as it was time to go home.

***

The angels laughed sadly as they watched her work in her journal; before going to bed on Wednesday she shook out the crumbs of the sugar cookie she had snuck from the dinner table and then drew an image and wrote a story about what she thought her guardian angel looked like. They knew she would soon find out.

Today’s Story A Day asked us to write a story in reverse. I may rework this idea since we have a prompt in the coming week that asks us to write something with a child as our protagonist…
