EASTER EASTERLY

8

Easter was fast approaching, and I so couldn't wait to experience it all. I had my doubts—Dad was never going to let us celebrate it in a way we wanted. I waited anxiously for that day to come, counting days with trembling crossed fingers. Mom and I had our secret plan already mapped out. It was left for Easter to come and not be taking forever to. If Dad wasn't going to let us celebrate it this time around, I thought, then my room would be just the perfect place to have a mother-daughter get-together without him having a clue. Having decided what to do on that day, I felt happy at least, though slightly miserable knowing Dad was going to be left out. Dad's angry side was one you wouldn't want to stumble upon, making me wonder how so gentle a man could have such a bad side. I was one who had a phobia of awakening Dad's angry side, and got even scared when I had a terrible nightmare about the subject shutting all door to us following the Christian path. I woke up panting heavily as beads of sweat got control of my forehead. Realizing it was morning—not just any morn—I looked to where my alarm clock stood on the nightstand, as the sound of the door made me turn. “Happy Easter, Aisha!” a cheery voice enveloped my bedroom as I drew in my breath. “Dad?” “Happy Easter, Sweet,” Mom emerged from behind, as she and Dad began heading toward me. “B-but how did you...?” “How did I convince your Dad?” she completed, and I nodded. “Thought we should make this day special,” Dad grinned and wrapped his arms around my mother. I couldn't help but feel emotional staring at them. It was a miracle having father celebrate Easter with us this year, and I knew for sure that this day was going to be the best day... ever. HAPPY EASTER, GUYS... PLEASE SHOW SOME LOVE BY PLACING YOUR COMMENT IN THE COMMENT BOX. THANK YOU ❤❤❤
