Unnoticed: Part VI

Updated on October 12, 2012

February 16, 2012, 3:44 p.m.

I’m at the airport drinking some of my favorite coffee. The plane is late but that’s okay. I am a patient man. After about forty-five minutes of extra time passing, I finally saw that the people I am waiting for have landed safely back home in New York. I wait a little longer even more anticipated. Then I see them coming down the escalator.


“Hello mom,” I responded. Her and my father gave me some quick hugs and asked to point them towards their luggage. I help them grab some of their belongings and we head out to the parking terminal.

“We can’t thank you enough for this anniversary gift son. This was too much.” I smiled at my father.

“No. It was not enough. But you both needed a year off in the life of luxury. No technology to distract you.” I closed the trunk and opened the door for my mother on the passenger side. “No internet, no television, no service, no cell phones. What could be more better than that?”

“You got that right,” my mother said. I closed the door and started driving out of the airport.

“You did tell Francine we were gone right? I know you two weren’t speaking to one another for a while. Plus this was a last minute gift. I want to make sure she-“

“For the millionth time, yes dad. I told her about my gift to both of you and she was perfectly fine with it.” I adjusted my voice to sound more sincere. “She just didn’t want to be bothered that week you know? Fashion week was being held in Manhattan so she was terribly busy. Plus it was for the fall season. That is her favorite trend after all.”

“Good,” my father said. “I can’t wait to see her. I’ve missed her.”

“We missed you both,” my mother added. They both smiled at me.

I grabbed my mother’s hand and kissed it. “I’ve missed you two so much." I then held her hand tightly. "I feel like everything from now on is going to be better than ever.”

      Gripping story Anjel.

      But not very convincing - the motive for the murder is not clear - or did I lose the plot somewhere?

      The writing could have been better - definitely not in the same class as your first 2 hubs.

      But do keep writing. :)
