“You seem blue when you shouldn’t be,” he said. “One day, it will come back.”

The table was set for a family gathering. All looked ready except him. “Let’s just wait for more minutes; not days or years, just minutes.”

It was a beautiful Sunday morning and every family in town had their relatives in their homes. Everyone is missing someone; to conquer the feeling was by doing family gatherings, but not when one chose to break his connection from his own blood.

“Maybe I regret living independently, but just maybe. One day, it will come back.” He told himself.

    1. Thank you very much, Ms. Claire. I’m glad you’ve liked the story. The “it” in my story means the feeling of happiness, contentment, and/or satisfaction. As he has chosen to break from the connection with his family, the happiness is included. God bless you, always. 🙂 — Matthew

    1. Greetings! Thank you very much and I’m glad you’ve liked and anticipated for it. The “it” means happiness, contentment, and/or satisfaction. Since he has broken free from his family, happiness is included. God bless you and I hope I’ve added some clarifications. 🙂 –Matthew

  1. There’s a mystery in this which I kept approaching an answer to and then backing away from. The mystery adds to the tension in the story, which I mean as a good thing.
    I found some of the syntax a bit confusing, eg “to conquer the feeling was by doing”.
    As you say, every gathering tends to have someone missing; probably even more so in these international days of ours.

    1. Thank you very much for the wonderful words, Ms. Elmo. I’m glad you’ve liked the tension in this story. I’ll take a note about what you’ve noticed with my use of words. 🙂 And I agree with you; I think gatherings with complete attendance are rare. God bless you! 🙂 — Matthew
