Down the Drain

For Sonya’s Three Line Tales #232

The yellow rubber duckies and the colored tortoises were his favorite, when he used to be mamma’s little boy.

Now he is no more little,he has grown into a big man, and her lap that could contain the whole of him once longed for his head resting on it, while she ran her fingers through his hair.

She collected the rubber duckies and put them in a plastic box to be preserved, opened the drain of the tub and she could hear the memories of his childhood gurgle down the drain with water.
