In Fifty: A Bedtime Story

I stare at the line of light across the comforter. She clings to me, arm across my chest, suckling, suckling, suckling…pause. Now is the time.

Woof! The damn dog barks. She stirs. Where is the white noise when I need it?

Suckling, suckling, suckling…long pause…I steal my breast away.

Happiness!
