Five Sentence Fiction : Faces

Word prompt: Faces

The 24 hour flight from London to Sydney was a killer.

Each time work required her to attend business meetings abroad, she cringed at the thought of yet another long haul flight.

The only pleasant part of work travel was the welcome home she received at the airport terminal.

The smiling faces from her family..  her 5 year old son, his two front teeth missing, her two year old twin boys , complete with bed hair and her best friend, her husband.

Yes, the job required her to travel the globe, but on the return home, never was it more apparent that  her world comprised of just four smiley, happy, loving  faces.

      Thanks for reading Jayne…I recently welcomed home my Brother and his new bride at Sydney airport, 6am on a Sunday morning….They went on a 2 month Honeymoon, and I thought ‘ Why not welcome them home’…airports are a melting pot of emotion, people welcoming loved ones home, seeing loved ones off…That experience inspired my short story…Glad you liked it.
