The migraines were getting worse – Silver Threads
After what seemed an eternity, the cars began to move and they pulled up to the walkway. Brooke leaned forward, kissed the side of her mama’s cheek then reached for the door handle.
As it swung open Jennifer said, “Don’t forget, you’re riding with Ava’s mom to the Scout meeting.”
“I thought it was your turn.”
“It was. Lara’s doing me a favor so don’t forget to thank her, okay Sweetie?”
“Okay,” Brooke nodded then she slammed the door shut and hurried along to join a group of classmates.
The sound of the door ricocheted through Jennifer’s brain like a bomb blast. The migraines were getting worse. This one was close to being unbearable. Pulling out of the drop off line and circling around behind the Clarksburg Middle School she fixed her eyes on the car in front of her and used every last bit of energy she had to push down on the gas pedal and keep moving.
