January drabbles - 15

“I had a dream.”
“What sort of dream?”
“A bad one.”
“Tell me more.”

“I dreamed that Dad stayed home all day.”
“That’s good.”
“But he was ill so no one paid him.”
“Not so good.”
“Then I got sick and pretended to be okay.”
“Really?” Mom sounded disbelieving.

“Then everyone got sick, and everyone died, ‘cause there was no one left alive to drive them all to the doctors.”
“What a very bad dream.”
“Yes Mom,” said the little boy looking tragic and brave. “And now my throat’s so sore so please can I stay home from school today.”
