I just finished to do the dishes and as I walked to the living room I found my dad looking at the new bookshelf I installed earlier.

' You did a good job with this son ' he said which was a pretty huge compliment from him.

' I tried,' I said ' hope it will hold,'

The feeling I wanted to ask him something important just swept over me, but I couldn't remember what.

' How are you anyway? I haven't see you in ages,' I asked instead.

' Well you know same old same old ', he smiled with that smirk he always had when he didn't tell me the whole story. ' Since I moved all my pain is gone, like this new place is a miracle. Mom misses you I think, you should see her more often' .

The question I wanted to ask him, the one I felt is so important still wouldn't come to my mind and by now it started to bother me, why I can't remember?

' You know her, always keeps busy, even with the cancer she would not stop, I just went to see her before I came here ' he said looking at me with his deep blue eyes I adored all my life.

' I know dad ' I said ' but you know I am extremely busy lately. I promise I will visit her tomorrow.

And all sudden the thing I wanted to know, the one question burned me all this time just popped in my mind and literally shocked me, scared me and made me very sad in a quick moment.

' Dad, how are you here? You passed years ago? '


Then, I woke up...

The End

Hey szino9!!


I really enjoyed your story...so glad you decided to post it.

I like how you didn't explain anything...was it a dream?...a visit from 'the other side'...?...a memory?
Sometimes it's fun to let the reader's own mind decide.

When a writer can convey such emotion with so few words...they have a gift.
I hope you will continue to write and share with us here.

I would like to think our departed loved ones visit in dreams. I once had a very lucid dream of sitting with my Grandmother in a park and talking. It seemed soooo real. Thanks for your story!
