Flower

 

 

Matt sat at his desk, staring at a plant in a little brown pot in front of him, a single purple flower nestled among the green leaves.

 

Becker watched through the window, concerned. Matt had been fine this morning but then he saw the flower. Since then he’d shut himself in his office, staring silently at the plant. Eventually, Becker went inside.

 

“Matt?” he asked. “Why did seeing that upset you?”

 

“It didn’t,” Matt told him. “My dad gave it to me just before he died; it’s never flowered before. It’s pretty.”

 

“It is,” Becker agreed, sitting down beside him.

Now I was expecting some really deep significance to the flower itself (not that a gift from a father to a son isn't significant). It was nice that the source of his silence was simply because it was pretty.

Thanks. I saw the flower as a reminder, or one of those moments where he'd think 'dad would have liked this'.

So bittersweet. I hope Matt keeps talking and tells Becker more about his past.
