Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story mother still loves you.” Tears glistened in the little boys eyes. “It's not your fault, you know. He wouldn't have wanted you to blame yourself.” It was Kate's turn to lower her eyes. “You don't know that. It might have been.” The boy took another step closer, took Kate in his arms and held her. Kate was enveloped in love. “Daddy wanted me to tell you,” The boy sobbed. “He wanted me to tell you, It's okay. He loves you. I love you. We both love you Mommy!” Kate grabbed the boys shoulders and pushed him back, shaking her head in disbelief and yet somewhere in her heart the truth spoke out. The boy turned and looked around like he had heard someone calling him. “I have to go now Mommy. I love you!” “I love you to Kyle,” she blurted out. At that the boy's smiled beamed as he vanished into the evanescence of life. Kate sat there a moment waiting to wake from this dream before she found the strength to get back to the car. Kate's mother jumped from the car when she saw her coming back. Kate's face had taken on a moonlit complexion and she seemed to grow weaker with each step she took. “Kate... Katie are you alright sweetie!” Katie fell into her mothers arms exhausted. “Why didn't you tell me about Kyle mom?” Kate's mom flinched at the question. “Wh...Wh...what? “The baby Mom. Tell me mother.” “I think maybe we should get home, sweetie. It's been a long hard day for you.” Kate twisted from her mother in a fury. “God damn it Mother just tell me! Please!” “It's just...” Kate's mother let out a small sigh. “It's just that I was afraid it was to much to soon, dear. There was a small time right after the accident that the doctors didn't think you would make it. The baby just never had a chance.” “But I wasn't even pregnant,” Kate begged. “They said you were just under two months along sweetie. I'm so sorry.” It came back to Kate like a heavyweight punch. The early mornings sick in the cabin. She had dismissed it as a little overindulgence. The weird cravings she had applied to nothing more than a little spiced up love life. She shook her head. It was all true and deep down she had suspected even at the cabin. She had considered sneaking away to make a doctors appointment for when she got back but hadn't wanted to get her hopes to high. “Oh Mommy! I want my baby!” Kate wrapped her arms around her mother and applied God's band aid. Tweet
