Abendessen
Mama Wild saß in der Küche und schälte Kartoffeln. Roman kam bald vom Eislaufen und dann stand er immer mit seinen großen Augen vor ihr und erzählte, dass er einen Sprung gestanden hatte. Die Schlittschuhe hingen über seiner Schulter und er plapperte fröhlich vor sich her, überschlug sich fast.

Mama Wild lächelte. Das waren die Zeiten, wenn alle glücklich waren. Das Haus war ruhig.

Zwanzig Minuten später kam Egon durch die Tür. Das Essen stand auf dem Tisch und jeder aß seinen Kartoffelsalat.

Das Haus war ruhig mit Ausnahme des Geräuschs der Gabeln auf den Tellern. Aber niemand war glücklich.

Re: Abendessen
Das ist so unendlich traurig und damit in seinem Schmerz auch schön. Schön, dass dies die Vergangenheit ist.

Ich mag es, wie du mit Worten die Familie in meinem Kopf entstehen lassen kannst. Ich sehe es vor mir. Bei diesem Abendessen möchte ich nicht dabei sein.

Re: Abendessen
Oh man... Mama Wild stories always kill me. This one is especially break-y. That descent of silence when Egon arrives is so painful! Haven't our Eskimo commando forces rescued her yet?

Re: Abendessen
Traurig! Schön! Absolut glaubhaft! Und ja es ist Vergangenheit, aber eine Vergangenheit, die die Charaktere noch heute prägt und das hast du in so wenigen Worten wunderbar rübergebracht. Kompliment!

Re: Abendessen
So traurig, so schön in Worte gefasst. Vor allem die zwei verschiedenen Arten der Ruhe. Und der kleine Roman, der vom Eislaufen plappert - zum Niederknuddeln niedlich, und so traurig, dass man ihn nicht beschützen kann. Snief.

Du bist doch die Große
„Wo ist Papa?“, hatte ihre kleine Schwester mit diesen großen, angstvollen Augen immer wieder gefragt und geweint. Doch Annette hatte keine Antwort gewusst.

Sie glaubte, es wäre ihre Schuld gewesen. Ihre Mutter hatte sie in dieser Nacht so seltsam angesehen. Und dann entschied sich Annette, erwachsen zu werden. Sie würde ihre Schwester beschützen. Lena war doch noch so klein. Niemand durfte ihr jemals wieder wehtun. Und ihre Mutter? Die konnte sich doch nicht selbst helfen. Annette war die Große, die alles im Griff hatte. Wer brauchte schon einen Vater? Sie würde die Familie zusammenhalten. Koste es, was es wolle.

Re: Du bist doch die Große
Wow, man hätte diese Drabbles auch unter dem Thema "Eltern" schreiben können.

Ich dachte immer, dass früher alles besser war. Hier sieht es so aus, als wäre die Vergangenheit einfach nur traurig.

Re: Du bist doch die Große
Ja, du hast recht. Die Vergangenheit sah bei ihnen allen nicht gerade rosig aus. Oder liegt das an uns? Vielleicht ist es die Zeit (am Tag und im Jahr), zu der uns gerade das einfällt. Aber irgendwie auf eine seltsame Art auch schön. Danke für die Inspiration bis hierher. *g* *waves*

Und noch eine abgefuckte Familie. Was für ein schöner Einblick in die Anfänge der ständig plappernden, kontrollsüchtigen Annette.

Change of scene

Veronika’s call came as he cracked open the second vodka bottle. She’d always had a knack for bad timing.

“Deniz showed up here.”

“I figured.”

A long pause, then, “Says he wants to move back to Munich.” Strange that he could hear her careless shrug even on the phone. She wouldn’t welcome her son, but at least she wouldn’t say no.

Twenty years ago, he’d welcomed a tiny wrinkled creature into the world, and known from the first relentless squalls that his life would change forever. He just hadn’t expected this.

Deniz was gone. Maybe it was for the best.

20 Years Ago
20 Years Ago (AWZ-Drabble)

"Would you have thought that this would last so long?"
"Never! With all the quarrelling 20 years ago! All those ups and downs."
"But it always led to reconciliation."
"I know, the making-up always was lovely. But there was something lingering and building up which I never expected to be masterd."
Roman shifted his head in Deniz' lap and looked at him lovingly.
"The adoption changed that, that was a necessary completion of the family."
Deniz caressed his cheek.
"And you really want to organize a surprise-party for Annette and Ingo's wedding-anniversary?"
"Yes! It's Little Bergmann's 15th birthday as well."

If we met before all this.
“You’re not bad you know. That triple axel was downright flawless.”

It’s funny he should use that word because as Mike looks at the massive hulk of a skater beside him he’s thinking the same thing.

Except that’s the problem. He’s so big - he’s never going to make it on the ice. However good he is, and he is bloody good, it won’t ever look graceful.

Mike feels a wave of pity for gigantor-boy but the kid just shrugs, smiling at him.

“Wanna go for a beer after training?”

...

At least that’s how Mike imagines it might go.

Promises
The baby was crying again. Veronika was so tired she felt dizzy. She'd been at work in the morning, then at uni all day. Now it was midnight and of course the damn kid stopped squalling the second Marian came home.

"He hates me," she said, near tears. Marian stroked black fuzz from Deniz's forehead, frowning.

"Don't be daft, he doesn't hate you."

"He does, just like the rest of your damn family. When are things going to get better?"

I'm fucking nineteen. Life's supposed to be fun.

Marian pulled her close with his free arm. "Soon, Vero. Really soon."


*



Karin was on the porch dragging the suitcase with the broken wheels, with Roman on its other side, trying to help. The bruise was livid purple on his cheek; he flinched when his father stepped outside.

"Karin, please. Come back in before someone sees you. What a spectacle over nothing."

He grabbed for the suitcase; sighed when she balked. "I won't hurt him. Promise." His fingers reached out hesitantly, ruffling Roman's hair. "You're okay, right?"

The boy looked wary, but he nodded.

Much, much later Karin realised how stupid she was. She should have secured the same promise for herself.


*



Richard brought her a diamond necklace: amends for shagging the au pair. Simone tossed it on the floor, where Vanessa found it, gurgling happily as she swatted it clumsily across the floor, then crawled after it.

Watching her daughter play, Simone considered the logistics of leaving. A plane to Hamburg and her mother would be no problem. But there was Jennifer's competition next week, and that Roschinski woman who trained her would ask awkward questions if Simone withdrew Jenny now.

Besides…

The last time, Richard said. Simone straightened, smoothed back her hair, and decided to believe him.

One last time.

Re: Promises
Oh man. These are so good. I love the contrast of the three women, and how in the end the only one who DOES leave is the one who SHOULDN'T. And just, GAAAAAAAAAAAH *squishes Deniz & Roman & Vanessa & Jenny all to bits*

Re: Promises
Oh my god, those drabbles are so heartachingly sad and lovely. They all got to my heart, most of all the one about the Wild family. I really want to send a flying horse around to get Mama Wild and little Roman out of there. They deserve so much better!
