THE SPEED OF LOVE
Kelvin M. Knight
Running uphill, he glimpsed trees merging into each other, forming one glorious wall of emerald splashed with crimson.
‘Faster, Daddy, faster!’
His trainers pounded the pathway until their blueness became white as the clouds and his daughter felt featherlight on his shoulders.
‘What’s around the next corner, Daddy?’ she trilled. ‘What’s around the next corner!’
Whatever treasure the next corner held – be it a golden tower, or a scarlet keep, or a castle fresh from a fairy tale – was inconsequential. Because there was joy in doing. There was joy in just being. Being on holiday. Being a good Father. Being one with his daughter for the first time in ages: no deadlines; no anger; no promotions; no missed bedtime stories. Nothing. But. Her.
‘Giddy up, Daddy!’ She clung onto his hair as if it were reigns.
With his breath dancing in his lungs, he sang, ‘Where to now, Princess Pena?’
