Reflection: 50 Words

in #fiftywords6 years ago


The soap bubble drifted lazily into view and hung motionless in the air. It reflected the scene
behind Lilly. She watched her parents fighting through the warped reality of the bubble's rainbow laced surface. When the bubble finally popped, she pretended that all the misery it captured disappeared with it.

This reminds me all too much of my childhood. I have such vivid memories of my parents fighting. It is indeed a sad situation, and hard for a child to understand.

You've captured the moment beautifully.



I can truly sympathize with this situation. While it didn't happen to me, I now have familial situations that are like this quick story. You just wish, for the children's sakes, that the bubble popping could actually remove the scene.

How sad and how real. There are many many Lillys all around the world right now.. Let us hope that they can see the colour of the rainbow soon in their life and things get better..

Oh that is lovely and sad, @blueteddy. It is heartbreaking what she has to endure. But she seems to have inner strength and an ability to cope. Great story!

Thank you very much 😊
