Jimmy stared into the fire pulling the old wool army blanket tighter.  The cold night promised to get colder.

He needed to decide, but he hated his choices. The most logical choice, he hated the most. It meant saying he was wrong when he wasn’t. He could make it to morning.

The embers faded, and freezing drizzle pelted him, soaking his blanket.

Digging the phone from his pocket, he let the screen fill with crystalline drops before he finally hit send.

A sleepy voice answered. He paused, still uncertain when he heard his own voice crackle.

“Mom? It’s me, Jimmy.”


Keep on writing.
