Weekly Writing Challenge: Lunch Posts

She could only have been about 2.  I saw her as I was heading to the snack machine on the first floor of the hospital after a lunch that was less than satisfying.  Her sparse hair was up in little braids all over her head, and it was all her grandmother could do to keep her close.  They approached the escalator and Grandma grabbed her hand tight; she counted to three and the little one took a giant leap forward onto the escalator… and giggled wildly.  She looked around to see if everyone else was having as much fun as her.  To her delight, the man behind her smiled.  The man in the wheelchair at the bottom of the escalator smiled.  The woman with no hair wearing the mask smiled.  I smiled too.  And, then we all knew the sound of an angel’s laugh.

  1. This is so cute! It reminds me of the time I went shopping with my daughter-in-law and granddaughter who LOVED to ride the escalator. I think we went up and down at LEAST five times!

    Oh, you wondered about the pingback. I do know that in your post, the one I just read, you have to put a link to the challenge page. Something like this: Check out more weekly challenge submissions here and at the word “here” add the link: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/01/20/weekly-writing-challenge-lunch-posts/

    Each week, that link will change. Hope this helps! 😀
