Waiting Essay

576 words - 3 pages

Waiting…I was waiting for my dad to come and pick me up. He was never late, so I thought that there was something wrong with the car or his boss wanted to talk to him about something. I didn't call him because if he was talking to his boss, then I didn't want to interrupt him. My mom called to tell me that she was coming to pick me up. She came a little while after she called. When I got in the car I asked her where's dad, but she didn't say a word. I started to worry about dad. We went home and my mom said to me:"Emily, I have to tell you something."I was sure that it was about dad. Something ...view middle of the document...

" Said mom.I really missed dad. We used to do everything together. On Saturdays and Sundays, we used to walk the dogs, have a little picnic. The first days the pain was stronger. It made me sick and weak. I was really worried about him, because he might get hurt… or worse. I couldn't stand his emptiness in the house. I just locked myself in my room and cried. Every single day for the past 6 months I hoped that he would walk through the door and say : "Hey, Emy!". Actually, I am proud of him, being brave and strong. The time past slowly, slowly. The 7 months passed, when my phone rang during volleyball practice. It was my mom telling me to come home quickly. When I went home, I saw that the dinner table was ready, but it was only 4:00pm. The door opened and I saw a man in soldier clothes walking through. The man had a big smile on his face. My mom came in crying and I still didn't realize what was happening, but then the man's face became clearer and then I realized that that was my dad. I ran very quickly to him and hugged him as strong as I could. My mom also joined the family hug. We sat all night and we talked about what my dad had missed. We were together again. I knew that he will leave us again soon, but at least I saw him and I knew that he is okay. He didn't stop hugging and kissing my mom and me. One week later he left again, but I was calm because I knew that everything will be over when he comes back forever.
