Through the Door

by Doug McIntire

I never expected to see her walk through that door. I hadn’t seen her in over twenty years, but I recognized her immediately. And I recognized the young woman who walked in behind her. She looked just like her mother did, back when we were still together. I didn’t even know she had a daughter. After an awkward hello, she said, "Nicole wanted to know who her father was."


Doug McIntire has never had this happen to him. He hopes it never does.

Yipes! There may be some college tuition bills in the mail, shortly.
