Grampa’s Nimbus

By René Toft

– Grampa? Do you think we will find Dad again?

Sille’s beetroot colored hair was a big mess while she looks worried at Grampa. He was polishing the old motorcycle with a sidecar. It was a Nimbus.

– Of course we do, he growled affectionately.

– Flupsi says Dadis playing a kind of hide and seek.

– You can tell your invisible friend that she might not be completely wrong.

– But if he is playing hide and seek, why did he say that he was on a secret mission? Is it because he is hiding from those ABC agents?

– KGB agents, Sille. Do not worry, we’ll find Dad. I am just not sure Dad knows he would like to be found.

Bille nervously tugs Grampa’s sleeve.

– Grampa, what is a Kayjeebee agent?

Everyone have had a grandfather. Maybe he was tall as a house. Large bushy eyebrows. Big mustache. Slightly muttering, even sorrowfull at times. Firm, but never mean. Perhaps he had, if you were really lucky, a motorcycle. An old Nimbus with a side car as you drove off in a summer in search Father who was out there saving the world. For while your dad saves the world, who is saving your father?

Grampa’sNimbus is a little freeform scenario for you who need a warm hug on a cold day.
