FFfAW: An Egg Cream Would Be Lovely


Edith’s feet and hands were chilled to the bone. She would go home. Soon. She didn’t have far to go. It was just to the left – or was it to the right?

Edith looked out across the river. She remembered riding on a ferry and her father buying her an egg cream. Oh, an egg cream would be lovely right now.

“Mrs. Mitchell?” a smiling police officer approached her.

Edith thought for a moment. “No, my name is Welch, Edith Welch.”

The officer smiled again.

“My daddy is just off buying me an egg cream. He will be back soon.”
