The alarm rang awakening Alice who stretched lazily on her bed. The time was 6am. She stood up and sighed.
‘Another year has passed’ she said ‘without Benjamin by my side’
Her phone beeper and it was her mother
‘Happy new year my daughter.’ Her mother said immediately she picked up the call.
‘Thanks mum’ she replied reluctantly
‘ your dad sends his regards. You should come over with Felix later, we would want to celebrate this day with our one and only grandson my dear’ her mother said.
‘ okay mum, I am hanging up I need to attend to Felix’ she said and hung up.
She threw her phone on thei bed, clenched her pillow and cried.
If only Benjamin was here, she thought she would have been happier taking Felix to her parents
