Diamonds Falling Down
Jojo pushed her cart through the store. The baby aisle stood before her. She felt cheap using coupons but she had no choice. She'd had everything until she made that one mistake, and ended up alone with Brady. Brady was her 6 month old baby boy. She was only 25 and she had a baby. Her mother kicked her out, she was living in a fixed income apartment which she was likely to be evicted from and she just got fired from her job. She saw other people staring at her. She found herself staring at him. David. He smiled and approached her.
"Hi Brady, Jo."
" I'm gonna say this now Your chance has come and gone. To you it's just a game. I was young And in love. I gave you everything But it wasn't enough. And now you wanna communicate? Go find someone else."
"I want Brady."
"Excuse me? You're not taking my son away from me, David." She rushed up the aisle. Brady started to whine and she knew he was hungry.
"Please tell me I'm not going to have to breastfeed you in public?" She said, pulling her shirt up and fixing her bra so he could feed. She almost ran into a guy with a shopping cart. She noticed he had a baby. She bit her lip and smiled.
He almost ran into a lady with a baby. He exhaled as he nodded. It felt strange as she left.
