It came sooner than expected. My mobile rang.

“Mum, I’m here.”

She’d walked the whole way to school on her own. I told her she’d done brilliantly. She sounded really pleased. Proud of herself.

I sat on my stairs. Just for a minute. 

Then I started yelling for her brother to get a move on, while I dashed about, looking under the sofa for his missing book bag.

Just one call. Just a moment. 

It came sooner than expected.
