via Daily Prompt: Warning
My mother wrapped the two coins in paper and sellotaped it all together. She then placed it securely in the zipped pocket in the inside of my school blazer. That money was only to be used in an emergency in case I missed my train and had to make contact home.
Weeks later I’m standing in the same place in the kitchen, my mother’s warning ringing in my ears and no money wrapped in paper. My mother is furious, but all my friends had crisps and lemonade for the train home.
