Unconditional love

He screamed, she was quiet.
He kicked out angrily, she didn't budge. 
He lifted his hand to fight, she extended hers to support. 
He pushed her away, she tightened her grip. 

Sometime later, his anger is gone. 
“Do you still love me”, he asks. 
“Yes son, I love you with a no 'conditions apply' clause.

Written in response to the prompt 'Conditions Apply' for Write Tribe's..

  1. I love this. You paint the perfect picture of the unconditional love between a parent and child.

  2. Lovely take on the prompt. Mothers do love their children unconditionally, don't they.

  3. Loved it! And how instinctive it is for us to assume that the relation may be between equals- until that last line. Really love these 'twists' of yours :)

  4. Yes, no conditions apply in this bond between a mother and a child!
