“Make a wish and it will come true”, said mom in her enthusiastic pitch of voice. When I looked at her, she resembled not less than a Fairy God Mother. The shine in her eyes told me “make a wish, make a wish”.
I closed my eyes and wished on that I want to go to Hawaii (heaven of beaches).
My mom gave me an “Oh, I know you wanted to go there” kind of look. The next day my bags were packed and I was off to Hawaii!!!
Mom being a news Reporter knew her tactics and ensured that we were in Hanapepe, Kauai in Hawaii on time and stayed in one of the best hotels.
The Glass beach over there is blanketed with millions of sea glass particles which came from years of discarded glass washed up on the shore. My heart melted because this was going to be the best holiday ever. In our swim suits we were baking under the summer sun and drinking cocktail.
Can I ask you a question?
Yes, I said
Can you forgive me?
No way, I smirked.
She held my hand, opened my fist and gave me a sea glass.
Are you serious?
You bet! She exclaimed
This is the sea glass which dad gave you.
How can you be so sure?
Your initials are engraved on it.
Mom smiled and her eyes shone like before but glittered with tears of joy.
“I knew why you wanted to come here”, she said wiping her tears.
“I just wanted to remind you that no matter what I’ll always love you” I said.
After the emotional drama we did swim in and had an amazing brunch. The next day I received a message from dad saying,
“I knew you could do it
Thanks for making it happen
We are inseparable now”
