Image-in Friday

Peeking around corners
anticipation thumps
deep inside her chest.

Pint-sized curls bob
from giggles

A brunette svelte woman
sneakily saunters out.
the little girl seizes upon—
black silk stocking knees
face uplifted
petite voice peeps,
“Mommy! What took you so long?”
Both burst into laughter
The game is at an end.
