In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Moment in Time.”
Okay, maybe this is stranger than I thought. Maybe this picture does not want to be shared. I posted this picture, wrote the story behind it, attempted to preview it, and save it as a draft, when the preview didn’t work. What happened? My computer froze. Okay, it’s not the picture. My PC is tired, or rebellious, or just doesn’t get how important this is to me. So, in the post I attempted to publish, I had explained how my granddaughter is angry, and doesn’t seem to be aware of the dangers of running away and wandering the streets in the middle of the night. She’s thirteen, is constantly on suspension from school. has been in the children’s pyschiatric ward at the county hospital, escorted there by the police. Our children services here seems to feel she hasn’t done enough to be placed in a home. Oh, I should add, a few of her suspensions have involved teacher’s getting hurt by her as she fought other students. This picture was taken as the granddaughter was packing up to run away again. My daughter took it to use to show the police, once we called them for the sixth or seventh time. My daughter has lived in this house for eight months. Countless pictures have been taken here. This is a first. Is the woman, because it’s clearly a woman, my granddaughter’s guardian angel, or something malevolent? Has she been with my granddaughter since her behavior changed? Is she the reason for the change? Is she truly in the picture(taken with a cellphone)? Or are we seeing things? You tell me. Who’s that lady near my granddaughter’s head?
