Drabble #1


By Britta

*
Tom asked, "May I lay over your lap, Cha?"
*
"Yes."
*
He did so and continued, "Will you rub my back?"
*
"Yes." I proceeded to do so.
*
"Do you want to know what I miss most about Earth?"
*
"Yes."
*
"I miss the moon."
*
"The moon? Why?" I inquired.
*
"Because I always knew where it was, where it would be. I also knew how big it would look in the night sky."
*
"Why was that so important to you?" I paused, thought about it and ventured, "Because it was predictable?"
*
"Yes."
*
"It was a variable constant."
*
"Yes."
*
"Ah. Now I understand."
*
"Good."
