I wrote a (
very) short story. I thought I’d share it. This is all my own creation. I don’t have a beta so all mistakes are mine.
“Sit in the chair, Coop.”
He ran to sit in the rocking chair across the room.
He heard his mother laugh. He loved that laugh. He really loved it when he was the one to make her laugh.
He smiled up at her, his face beaming from ear to ear.
“What now, momma?” He asked. “I wanna hold my little brother.”
“I WANT to hold my little brother.” She softly corrected him.
“Yeah, yeah… Uh. I mean yes, ma’am.”
“Good. Now put your arms like this.” She showed him how she held the baby and he quickly copied her.
“That’s perfect, Cooper. Now you have to be very careful to support his head okay?”
“Okay. I promise, momma.”
She smiled and kneeled down with the baby in front of the rocking chair. She carefully laid the baby in Coopers arms making sure he was properly supported before leaning back on her heels but keeping her hands ready to grab the baby just in case.
The previously sleeping baby woke with a yawn. He opened his eyes prepared to scream his protest of the movement that awakened him when he realized someone new was staring down at him. He blinked and smiled.
“Cooper, this is Blaine. Your baby brother. This makes you a big brother. Now I know you’re 10 and that you’ve been a big boy for a while now, but as a big brother it’s your job to look after Blaine. To make sure he’s always safe and happy. Okay? Do you think you can do that?” She smiled at him but the smile was a little hesitant. Like she was scared he’d reject his new found role.
Cooper, wanting to make her smile that one he loved, beamed at her. “I will, momma. I promise. I’ll always take care of him. He’ll always have me.”
He looked down at the little bundle in his arms and said, “Hello, Blaine. I’m your big brother. I’m gonna love you, and care for you always, no matter what.”
The baby cooed a little at him and his smile got bigger. “I think he understands, momma. I think he knows I’m his big brother and that I’m gonna love him forever.”
She was to in love with the scene before her to even bother correcting his grammar. It was perfect.
(My punctuation’s suck. Sorry for any run on sentences. Feel free to point them out and I’ll attempt to fix them.)
