Today's post is my entry into this week's 100 Word Challengehosted by Velvet Verbosity. The 100 Word Challenge is an exercise in which we write exactly 100 words in response to the weekly prompt word. Click the link to read the other entries–good stuff over there! 
This week's prompt was "harmless". 

She had spent the afternoon with Lucas at a coffee shop near Henry's school. Realizing she was late, she asked Lucas to come with her. She knew it was childish but she didn't want Lucas to leave just yet. The three of them walked together on the sun dappled sidewalks, laughing at grade school jokes and kicking the fall leaves aside. Henry begged them to stop at the park, and it seemed harmless when she agreed. 

Now she questioned herself for making that decision, the one that took Henry away forever. Had she said yes for him or for Lucas?

**This is a new passage written this week for my current work-in-progress, still untitled.**
