‘Kid, come here; it’s amazing……unbelievable,’ the grandfather shouted.
The grandson didn’t respond; he was watching a movie.
‘You are now such an unruly boy…...always watching those violent movies,’ the old man grumbled.
He looked at the window; he felt queasy about the kid. The boy had changed.
‘What’s it grandpa?’
‘The moon…..it’s just outside the window,’ the old man pointed an exited finger towards the window.
‘Let me clean your specs,’ the boy had outgrown the little silly games they once loved to play. ‘It’s the frost on the glass.’
‘I know……but I thought,’ he wished the boy would act silly.

  6. Oh, so much tenderness in-between these lines - the desire to show how magical the world can be..i think that time will turn around again and once more they will both look at the moon with pleasure

  7. Poor Grandpa. One day the child will sadly realize what he missed. Grandpa will be gone. Well written, IB. ---- Suzanne

  9. Ah, the stage where all adults are ignorant and silly, and the young ones know everything better. Poor grandpa. A few years later, hopefully they'll be able to connect again. Beautiful story.

  12. My grandsons are still young enough to say 'Don't be silly, Nan!' with a smile, and then to join in my fantasy.
