September drabbles - 16

Eric leaned back triumphantly in his chair. The computer screen scrolled intricate words while speakers played their musical parade. “I won,” he exclaimed.

“Good job,” said Mom who’d just won her own private battle with the washing machine.

“Good job,” said Dad who’d helped his boss win a contract and saved his job.

They used to complain at computer games, saying Eric’s eyes were glued to the screen and it had to be bad for him. Eric missed the old days. But now he was packed and heading back to college.

His Mom and Dad missed the old days too.
