Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Two Hundred and Fifty-Four

If she closed her eyes she could shut out the noise and argumentation all around her and pretend she was anywhere but in a noisy office among the sort of people she wouldn’t bother to talk to if she had a choice

But there’s a saying about beggars and choosers, so she just closed her eyes and waited.

Eventually, her name was called.

She stood up and walked into her husband’s office. He looked at her with tear tracks on his cheeks.

“Sorry love. But it’s good news. The adoption went through without a hitch.”

“Christopher is our son now.”
