the prodigal son # 1......

Not 11 kms. out now.
Pangs of resentment, guilt and anxiety seared him. The biblical connotations of today’s scenario flashed at him. That’s the thing about self proclaimed ’ black sheep ‘, the tag fits and you tend to wear it like a badge. It states who you are and somewhat excuses what you have done.
Like Gary Cooper in ’High Noon’, he reenters the fray having metaphoric guns drawn and intent on revenge of sorts. The kilometres close down.
Time has now taken his father’s mind, whilst mother rambles around in a big old house threatened only by errant rugs on shiny floors. Her sister has implored his return, stating the obvious and pouring platitudes on turbulent memories.
Familiar landmarks loom and his chest tightens. An 80 klm. zone slides to sixty and people start to appear. Rural urban life begins to tick over.
“Biblical indeed”, he considers.
