50-Words Story #3 Christmas Special: (Un)Grateful

mother-and-child
(c) Oswaldo Guayasamín

She sold herself to older men every night to keep her 11-year-old alive.

That Christmassy night, she returned home with a small gift.

“For you, sweetheart.”

Her child unwrapped it. “But I wanted an i-pod, ah!”

With moist eyes, she thanked God for the only gift she has- her 11-year-old.
