Emptiness

Mar 28th, 2019 by thegooddoctor in 100 Words

Toniann held her infant daughter close to her chest. She hummed and rocked looking at her tiny eyelids, gently pressing her face against baby’s fragile skin.

The nurse came in to take her, but Toniann pleaded for a few more minutes. She loved the feel of her small body in her arms.

Kurt gently reached to remove the baby from Toniann’s arms. “Honey, it’s time to let the nurse take her.”

Toniann struggled at first, but then released her daughter into the hands of her husband. Emptiness filled her heart.

She’d never feel the soft touch of her daughter again.
