100WW — Graduation Revelation

A46E0DBD-60D3-48FC-8DB6-50B955D133D7“Your mother must be very proud of you,” a woman I didn’t know said to me.

“Yes, I suppose she is,” I politely responded and started to walk away to get lost in the crowd. But before I could, she grabbed me by my wrist.

“So what are your plans?” she asked me.

“I’m sorry,” I said. “Do I know you?”

She gave me a very sad look. “No, not really.”

“Then leave me alone,” I said.

“I did that once already,” she said. “I won’t do it again.”

“What are you talking about?” I asked.

“I’m your birth mother.”
