Sea Dad

Barry sat on the couch on his knees. His elbows were resting on the windowsill, his chin in his hands. He knew his Dad would not be home until tomorrow, but he was playing a game with himself pretending that today was the day. Imagining that if he would stare out the window long enough and hard enough his Dad would walk up the driveway. Then he would rush out to meet him.
