The omen: FFfAW – week 11-17-2015



 

“I can’t go on anymore!”  Sophy slowly went down on her knees. She bent over and stretched out between the long grass covering her face in her arms. Her tears were wetting the arms of her t-shirt. She was sobbing and did not realize that something slowly floated up to her.

A soft voice called her name: “Sophy, Sophy don’t give up! You are strong and can fight your father’s abuse. I’ll help you. You just have to believe in yourself.”

Sophy slowly lifted her head.  In front of her was a shimmering white peacock. It’s tail wide open reflecting the last sunshine of the day.

The white peacock’s eyes were soft and calming. It brought a good omen of escape and healing to Sophy.

She got up and went home to face her father. She stood strong against his mental abuse and walked away never to return again.
