Ready

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘I’m not ready for

what this is,’ she cried as

he stood helplessly staring at

the ring collecting flakes next

to her middle finger. ‘Neither

am I,’ he whispered. ‘We’re

kids, who are about to

become parents.’

  7. Stunning photography! I enjoyed the stillness of the dialogue. So swollen with emotion within limited verbiage.
