A Change of Music

Reading her sweet note at least put a smile on my face. I took my earbuds out, allowing her words to fill me up. I couldn’t seem to find anything to say except, once again, thank you… I read over her profile, intrigued by her sudden, and much appreciated, kindness. I proceeded to read some of her ficlets, and continued until I heard my parents walk in through the garage door.

“Honey? we’re home.” I heard my mom say as she walked in.

It wasn’t until I spoke that I realized I was smiling.
“Ok…” I said, still in a trance.

I put my earbuds in to block out the noise of my parents downstairs. I began to play some soft music as I conitnued to read her ficlets. I didn’t stop until I was called for dinner, to which I came reluctantly.

“A smile?” my dad said, frowning, “I haven’t seen one of those in a while. What cha been up to?”

I sighed and tried to hide my smile as I poured my drink.
“Oh nothing…”
My dad nodded. I sat down at the table, unable to hold back my smile any longer.
