Let’s Explore the Unknown (98 words)

“Let’s explore,” you say, a game we played when we were kids, wandering through the woods and pretending—intrepid explorers, time travelers, pirates.

Today your big hand makes my tiny one feel safe, warm, as I am frightened of what the procedure tomorrow will uncover.

As you lead me toward the lake where the wood ducks chatter, you say, “Let’s pretend we’re time travelers” and then you effortlessly lift and twirl me around so gently I feel I am floating on clouds, and I lean back, close my eyes and pretend it’s months into the future from today.
