The Rules



The rules have been laid. The family members threatened. She’d be watching them all from afar. The first temptation arises. A little old woman approaches with a big smile. The holder of the precious cargo tried to ignore her, but the woman held out her hands and puckered her lips. Eyes like a hawk rested on the holder, this was the moment of truth before her. The holder knew the old woman, they had been neighbors for years. The woman’s eyes open wide as she waits. The holder’s head hung low as she stated, “I’m sorry Mrs. Clark, his mom would kill me if I let you hold him.” The mom’s shoulders relaxed from a distance,  while the old woman nodded sadly. “But come by tomorrow, I’ll have him all to myself.” The woman winks, a mom sighs and the holder waves with a smile.
