This week I will be using the prompt submitted by Esther: Handkerchief, ink and ice.
My Entry is 184 words long.
I wrapped a few pieces of ice into my handkerchief and press the handkerchief again my little sister’s scrapped knee. She watched my quietly, tears still fresh in her eyes.
I smiled at her, hoping that it would calm her. “Just hold the ice to your knee for a little bit, then we will put a band-aid on it.”
My little sister sniffled a little but she smiled back up at me. “Okay.”
I move behind my sister and started to unbutton her dress. I pulled the dress up off her head, and handed her a clean tee-shirt.
“So, Leah.” I said slowly. “Can I get an explanation on how you scrapped your knee, and why there is ink on your dress.”
Leah shook her head at me, “I can’t, Molly. It is a secret.” She sounded as if she was going to cry again.
I sighed. I wasn’t going to pester her about it. Mom or Dad could talk to her later. Maybe she would tell them. I carried Leah’s dress the laundry room and rubbed some stain remover on the ink stain.
