As Simple as That
“Nothing will make me go out in this weather. All I want to do is sit in front of the fire and read a good book. It’s as simple as that,” I had told myself.
But here I am, standing at the ticket counter, her little hand in mine.
“Daddy, you had promised to take me to the park today.”
The expectation in her innocent eyes had been palpable.
I smile happily as she takes the popcorn from me, babbling away endlessly about winning a teddy bear inside.
“Her trust matters more than anything.”
It was as simple as that.
