***Hello, everyone! I know that this is in a weird place on the site, but it's really just me experimenting and trying new things out of boredom. I own nothing but my bored drabbles, so let's go!
A little boy played in the waiting room of the local hospital. He approached a doctor, who was a bit preoccupied with his work on a clipboard. "Have you seen my mama?" he asked shyly.
The doctor looked at him. "Kid, I haven't the foggiest idea on where your mother is," he said. The little boy frowned. "She was hurting lots, and Dad wouldn't be there, although he did this to her," he said.
