This week’s photo prompt is provided by Phylor.

“We didn’t know which car you might want, so we arranged for both on trial. You can drive them for a week and then decide.” Parental smiles.

Crying, sniffling, jumping, hugging, ohhhh and ahhhh. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thousand butterfly wings fluttering in her chest. A car! Her own car!

“They are both kinda old,” she mentioned, dream of a fire-engine red mustang fading.

“Old is better,” Dad informed her, “and these are antiques.”

“Why did you bring Thomas Aquinas here?”

“We didn’t,” Dad responded. “Maybe he felt left out.”

Thomas was a great escape artist. Still she wanted a car, wanted the freedom of not being chaperoned, Go where she wanted, leave when she wanted. No feeding. No forkfuls of manure. No coming in smelling like horse.  No horsie  kisses. No summer meadows dozing in the sun. Nobody to listen

She hugged her parents again, thanking them for the wonderful gift. “The cars are beautiful.” Then she walked past both to wrap her arms around Thomas’ neck. Buried her face in his mane.

Some friends can never be left behind.
