Father’s Love

He is watching TV alone sitting at couch. It’s getting dark outside, so he turned on lamp. His father sits on chair next to the couch to watch TV. Then his father looks at his son saying, “Is everything alright?”. He looks back his father but he wavers like he wants to tell something. Something in his mind stops him.

Father moves to sit next to him on couch, but the son deliberately fixes his eyes back on TV. He thinks something happened to him. He gazes at his son, and calls his name. His son looks at him. They look at each other for 5 seconds without saying anything. He catches his son’s face being contorted from sadness. He hugs him. He says, “It’s okay son, you can tell me everything,”. His son starts to cry in his arms.
