Z is for Zzzzzz – 2015 A to Z Challenge

As Dan lay in his bed that night across the room from his brother Jon he thought back over the years they had been together and the adventures they had shared…

He chuckled to himself as he thought about the piglet story and how funny it must have looked running down the street with a boy and two grown men chasing it.

He recalled the horrific odor after being sprayed by the skunk on the playground and Jon’s hysterical laughing when he got home.

But he also laughed at the memory of dad’s face when he confessed to taking a large piece of apple pie that was not his to take.

Now, he knew, in the morning those would truly be memories of the past as Jon’s room would grow silent as he went off to college.

Dan got up and walked across the hall to his brother’s room and looked at him as he soundly slept and said, “I love you Jon…”

‘Zzzzzzz” was the reply from the soon to be college student.

Dan walked back to his room and climbed in his bed, quietly sobbing and also thankful that he and Jon were still brothers and always would be.
